I’m by no means someone who likes to flirt, but sometimes I do like to chat with others. I’m a very reserved person who only goes out when I feel the need to, and I rarely do a night on the town. I socialize a lot at work, and an acquaintance of mine told me that I should try chatting to people on Skout. I was a bit embarrassed by the suggestion, but they said it would be a good way to find a friend, or even to get a date. I acted as if I wasn’t going to take the suggestion, and said “thanks.”
I decided to look up the company, and I was impressed by the things that I saw. I decided to download the Skout app, since I use my phone a lot of the times, and I carry it with me every day. The app was very simple to use, and I was able to download it within a minute. After I implemented it into my phone, I was instructed to sign up for an account. I signed up for the account, and created a profile with some personal information, and I chose to add my picture.
I did read that I’m not required to add a picture, but I have no problem with showing myself to the world. After creating my profile, I began to look for people to chat to. I read about a “shake” feature, that allows me to shake my phone, in order to bring up someone to chat to. I was blown away when it worked for me the first time. It was so much fun, and it was something that I decided to do on a regular basis, to meet new people to chat to. This app is really a lot of fun.
I carry my phone with me all the time, and as soon as I get a break from work, I’m right on Skout. If I’m not doing the shake to talk, chat, then I will do the “buzz,” where I can voice my opinions about things that are bothering me, or some interest that I have. There is a very big community on Skout, and I can use the app to talk to anyone, anytime of the day. A few people that I found to be interesting, I decided to add them to my favorites list, which makes it easier for me to find them later.
I hadn’t determined yet which route I wanted to take when using Skout; the romantic route, or a friendship route. I decided to use the app, and see what comes of it. I did meet someone who seemed like they would be a good friend, and we had several interests in common. I chose to purchase some Skout points, which is a way to purchase features inside of Skout. I used my Skout points to pay for the feature that let me know if someone has been looking for me. It turns out, someone had been looking for me.
The same person that I had added as a favorite, and thought they might make a good friend, had added me to their favorites, and had been looking for me. I was flattered, and that person and I, chat regularly through Skout, and we’ve become good friends.
