I Tried Omegle So You Don’t Have To

I heard recently about a site called Omegle. It’s where you go to chat anonymously with strangers. I decided it try it (so you don’t have to). I’m not brave enough to try videochat (I imagine there are many Farve-eque guys there), but I did have these chats.

You can decide if it’s a good way to spend your time:

Omegle Chat Number 1:

You: hi
Stranger: Who are you
You: i’m a mom. you are?
Stranger: A mom.
Stranger: Really.
You: really? where?
Stranger: Shush, new fag.
You: and why did you logon t omegle if you don’t mind my asking
Stranger: I’m from the world wide web.
Stranger: TO TROLL NEWBFAGS
You: well, you certainly troll effectively.
Stranger: Sarcastic faggot is sarcastic.
Stranger: Hahaha.
Stranger: Mothers ALWAYS ASK FOR IT!
You: is faggot an insult? or are you gay?

Ugh, I realized after he/she disconnected that I must sound pervvy.
Parents: go ahead and blacklist this site from computers that your kids might use.
Everyone else: don’t bother.

  1. “what size r ur boobs” LOL!! Thank you for doing this research, it’s comments like that which keep me from playing online cribbage anymore. (Because if anyone can make cribbage un-wholesome its people on the internet.)

  2. Sounds like the AOL chat rooms of yesteryear! “what size r ur boobs” indeed. Thank you for you trying this out. Chalk another “sharing” program off the list.

  4. HAH! well i use omegle to kill time. its also fun to deal with the rare mentalities you find on omegle. the www limits information you expose (assuming hacking isnt involved) so people on omegle can really be and express themselves. this is what makes omegle so..different xD

  5. I’ve actually had some great chats on omegle. You just need to filter through the crap. It’s not worth it if you’re looking to do this often, but as a timewaster you can usually find a decent conversation within 5-10 minutes. Basically, look for someone who knows how to type but won’t blast you with caps lock, and you’re probably good. :)

  6. I actually had one or two decent conversations there. For the first one, I was pretty consumed by the thought that he’s my soulmate. We were half the world apart yet we could just understand each other perfectly. 

    But, we got disconnected cos of a freaking internal conflict. To the 22 y/o computer science graduate I met, cheers! Im still keeping my hopes up.
