How to Have an Actual Conversation on Omegle

The popular website Omegle.com is new and exciting. You simply press Talk on the homepage and you are connected with a stranger from anywhere in the world. But, this has downsides. Many people are 'trolls'--meaning someone who just wants to make up stories to try to freak people out. Follow this guide to try to have a real conversation with someone.

Steps

  1. 1
    Add the right interests. Omegle allows you to choose interests so you can be matched with people who like similar things. But beware: some interests are more dangerous than others, so proceed at own risk. Religion and other controversial topics are especially prone to extremists, trolls, and people you don't want to meet.
    • If you notice there are lots of trolls or bots with a certain interest, remove it and try again after a week.

    Start your conversation the right way. Saying "ASL" or "I'm horny" isn't a good start. You could say "Hi."or simply "Hello, what's up?"

    If you want to avoid trolls, make it clear. After introducing yourself, say something like, "I don't want to be rude, but if you are horny, can't speak English, or don't want to actually have a conversation, please disconnect."

    Learn how to identify trolls and bots. There are key ways to point out people who are trolls. They may say something very random and offensive at the start of the conversation, or simply say "I'm horny". They usually type first, and type often, as well. Bots leave automated messages and are often instant replies that don't relate to the subject.

    Don't be afraid to disconnect. If the person you are talking to seems to be weird, simply disconnect. Also, if the person starts a conversation by saying "asl" they are most likely looking for someone to have cyber sex with.

    Don't be tricked by trolls. They may send you a message saying Omegle has tracked your IP address, or that Omegle has classified them as a sex offender, usually ending with fake contact information. These are all fake, don't be tricked.

Tips

  • You can have fun and be random on Omegle without being a troll. Starting a conversation with a random trivia fact can be funny and lead to a good conversation.
  • If someone disconnects on you, do not be offended. There are typically 20000-45000 daily users online, you'll find someone better to talk to.
  • Keep a positive attitude throughout the conversation.
  • Almost all boys will call girls cute but don't get sexual with them.
  • Don't be offended by what people say. Most of them are trying to get people mad at them, so you will just feed into their bait.
  • Easy way to spot abusive people: They ask for a picture of you, usually naked or half naked.
  • Try to add interests so you will have a better bond with the person you are talking to.
  • A fun way to start a conversation is "Hello, ASL or AC?" ASL meaning Age/Sex/Location, and AC meaning Actual Conversation. See which one they pick.
  • You can use the question prompt on omegle to mix things up, or add an interest to chat with someone who shares that interest.
  • Never ask ASL as this is the most annoying thing you can ask. People will just disconnect if you do or can get abusive.
  • While using Omegle, expand your conversation beyond ASL and What's up? Talk about common interests, like music and sports, or popular international news.

Warnings

  • Don't give out your picture or too much personal information.
  • Parents: Omegle can be very offensive sometimes. Keep children under 13 away from Omegle.
