Most users are able to go on for hours in a conversation without getting disconnected, some find that their connections end rather abruptly. This is most likely due to incompatibility between you and your chatting partner. This may entail use of an outdated browser that is incompatible with our sockets, bad internet connection, or incompatibility with antivirus software. To get the best out of the free-chat experience, try using the latest version of any of the following browsers:
Other causes for intermittent chat connections might be any of the following:
Every now and again, BlahTherapy may experience a flood of new traffic from a blog or social medium directing new users to our site. When this happens, most people just want to try out the chat to see if someone is actually on the other line but have no intentions of chatting.
Another cause may be that a user may be looking for someone they disconnected from with hopes of finding them again. In this case, a user will connect, see the username is not who they’re looking for, then leave.
(No initiation or response)
At this point, your chatting partner is most likely waiting for someone to initiate the conversation. Due to the nature of the site, it’s been found that at times Venters may experience anxiety while venting for the first time and will choose to simply back out of the conversation. This goes for first time Listeners as well. Because these are not trained professionals, some users may change their mind about wanting to speak to someone who may be writing out a really long story. Please do not feel discouraged should this happen, these are everyday people that at times are incapable of handling incredibly serious situations.
(in the middle of a conversation)
Just as stated above, a user may have an incompatibly on a device that may drop the conversation due to differing socket transports provided by their browser. If this is the case for you, please update your browser to the latest version or try using the most compatible browser, Google Chrome.
When a chatting partner finds out that their chatting partner is of an age or gender that may not be relatable to their issue, they may feel uncomfortable continuing their session and will disconnect.
Because Listeners are not trained professionals, at times they may encounter a situation that may be too much for them to handle prompting them to leave the conversation midway.
In this situation, a Venter has now realized that they no longer want to continue opening up about their problems. A venter may also leave when they’ve found a Listener may not be compatible with their views or cannot relate to their situation. Another possibility is that the Venter is no longer alone in the area they are chatting and does not feel comfortable continuing the conversation. (Over the shoulder looking)
Partner Disconnected unintentionally
Your partners internet connect may have dropped or they may have closed out the window accidentally. When this happens, users can re-connect to their last partner by returning to the chat hub page and agreeing again to the terms. A prompt will show up asking if you’d like to reconnect with your last partner.
During an in-genuine conversation initiated by a troll, when it no longer becomes funny, when the conversation has gotten too serious, or when they run out of things to say they may just leave.
At this point, a troll that had the intention of being incredulous realizes that the venter is in serious need of help and no longer wants to deal with their issue.
