My Story of How I Wanted to Make a Poll in a Random Video Chat and Found Love
I’m a sociologist. I want to say that nowadays, it is much easier to make all sorts of polls and questionnaires. The Internet provides a great number of opportunities. Random chats for dating and communication are useful and convenient tools. They do not only allow meeting users from all corners of the world but also help simplify work. The last one is my case.
I had to make a poll and analyze the results, on the basis of which I had to write a paper. My topic sounded something like this: “what occupation takes a greater part of the day?”. Some decades ago I had had to stand on the streets and ask passersby. Fortunately, online video chats were developed at that time. So, my poll was not so nasty. I was sitting in front of a computer, drank tea and communicated with random interlocutors. I had a list of test questions. I asked them every interlocutor and collected their answers.
One of my interlocutors asked my opinion. So, our conversation started to develop in a different way. Topics were found themselves, and I even didn’t notice how we switched to the discussion of hobbies. It was late in the evening, and I wanted to sleep. When I said that I wanted to go to sleep, he suggested calling me the next day. I agreed but didn’t treat him seriously.
When I was online the next day, he really called me to my surprise. Our communication was pleasant and cheerful. We talked about everything but I have to continue gathering information. Thus, the next day I started searching for new interlocutors. I managed to poll about 200 users. This task took about two or three weeks.
When I was done, my interlocutor called me once again. He was quite persistent and said that he wanted to continue our dating. That’s how our future relations began. We chatted for one more month. We were from one city, but I didn’t try to meet him in reality.
He insisted on out first offline date. I agreed. We met in a café. We chatted and laughed. It was a pleasant time for both of us. He walked me home. When he left me, I felt that I enjoyed the time we spent together. I fell asleep with a smile on my face. That was the beginning of our great love that has lasted till current days.
By the way, I analyzed the results of that poll and wrote my paper. It helped me to promote. Now, I understand that that random chat was a turning point in my life. It changed my life drastically and put it upside down. I could never even imagined that I found my love in an online cam chat, but my love found me itself.
