The Ten People You'll Meet On Chatroulette

It's sweeping the internet. It's totally revolutionary and brand-spanking new. It's Chatroulette, the website that lets you web- and text-chat, one-on-one, with randomly selected people all across the world, and it is absolutely unlike anything you've ever seen - for about six and a half minutes. That's how long it takes to realize that this is just like any other chat room, only here you can jump more effectively from one stranger to the next. In reality, each and everyone one of the many Chatroulette users fits into these ten types:

1. The Masturbators
the-masturbator-2

Far and away the most memorable visitors to Chatroulette, these guys are just happy to have a new way to expose themselves to the world. No longer will they have to rely on Craigslist "Casual Encounters" or taking to the streets in their trench coats. They're already creepy enough, but when you factor in the number of tween girls using the website, it makes you pine for the days of simple, anonymous chat rooms.

2. The Girls
the-girl

Actual, living, breathing females are rare enough to deserve a category all to themselves, and in all honesty, I understand. Why would you spend time on a website where you are one-million percent more likely to encounter a guy whacking off or asking to see your tits than to have an actual conversation?

3. The Dorm Room Bro
dorm-room-bros

Often wearing their respective schools' hoodies, these guys will write "ur a faggot" before even saying "Hello." Don't you miss college?

4. The Partially Obscured Person
partially-obscured

You have decided to log onto a video chat site, but to only show half your face, or your stomach, in an attempt to...well, I'm not sure. What's the point of using video chat if you're not going to show what you look like? Are you afraid that you'll be surfing happily along until *BAM* there's your mom, your girlfriend, or that professor in college who thought you had so much potential?

5. The Fake Cammers
fake-camera
Hey, that picture of the cat hovering in the air looks totally real! Oh wait, no it doesn't. And look, here's a link to your website. No thanks, I'll stay, with the hope of finding a real, live girl with her top off.

6. The People Wearing Costumes
costume

Yeah, we get it. You're weird. Next.

7. The Suggestives
the-suggestive
Similar to The Masturbators, these folks are missing an article of clothing, typically a shirt. Mostly, it's guys with abs showing off to girls who need their fixes until The Jersey Shore returns. In a way, they're worse than The Masturbators, who at least aren't ashamed to show it all.

8. The "Isn't That..." Person
the-isnt-that-person1
On my first go on 'Roulette, I swore I saw the Jonas Brothers. On my second time, Gabourey Sidibe. No to both, but for just a moment, I thought I had just stumbled into five seconds of internet fame. But keep looking, kids, maybe you'll get lucky.

9. The People with Shitty Webcams
shitty-webcams
There's nothing worse than trying to talk to someone whose camera is two minutes behind. It's like the movie Kung Pow - the actors' mouths move, but the dialogue doesn't come until later. Same thing here.

10. The Bored
the-bored
Ultimately, Chatroulette is not much more than a good time waster when you're bored and not in a work environment, full of countless people, all with the same glazed-over look, searching for someone that they know they'll never find. And that's what will keep me coming back.

So Josh, which one would you fit into? Im guessing #8. Did anyone ever tell you that you look like kosh?

The guy on the right really does look like a Jonas Brother (in that group shot.)

I am way too terrified to try chatroulette alone.

This is scary and depressing all at the same time. It's like fleeing a planet full of zombies only to run up to a mirror and in your reflection see that you are one of them.

Did they ever get rid of the "hanging" person?

Feb 11 10 - 6:38am

Well, being black, you often encounter the blatant racists too, making it somewhat of an unpleasant experience.

You've convinced me (your job was not that tough). I'd have to be pretty hard up for entertainment before I ever ventured onto that site.

What category do you put guys and girls in who met on chat roulette, talked for hours and ended up masturbating together on cam, getting each other off. Yeah, sounds too good to be true. But true is the operative word. Peace!

Had a short chat with Snoop Dogg a few weeks back. Nice post though. Found it googling "What the hell are people looking for on ChatRoulette?" After a half hour of "Switching" without even getting so much as a "Hi", its as if everyone is looking for a unicorn.

Omg, I Just saw The Jonas Brothers put they passed, i was in luck of fame, i was gobsmacked thinking it was them, even though i am not a personal fan i was still exited, with my excitement i headed on here to see if they were real but my expectations are not real:( but they is a chance that they are real! >.<

I saw once a couple doing oral sex, the guy was licking her down there, and she was holding the cam as best as she could.

Just hit the print screen key right before she hit Next. Now I have a good masturbation motivational pic, lol

Dec 12 11 - 7:20pm

the partially obscured are the masturbators, they've just got enough taste not to show their dick until they know somebody wants to see it.

I met an amazing guy, we talked for hours. Then the connection timed out and the whole conversation is gone, and I'll probably never get to talk to him again
