When people think of a sexy voice on phone chat or dating lines, they may envision a young, curvy lady speaking slowly with bass-like vocals similar to Natasha from the Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons. Men may try to go for a deep baritone like late soul crooner Barry White. While some people find these types of voices very appealing, the truth is that when it comes to recording yourself for a phone personal, it is best in the long run to sound like your natural self. Imagine how hard it would be to always have to change your voice whenever you spoke, although some people do in fact take voice training lessons – such as radio voice professionals. People who use phone dating lines normally want to meet a real person, not a character. While you are recording your voice personal, remember to try to keep calm so that the real you can come out…not the nervous gittery version. If uncertain about how you sound in a voice personal, here are some steps you can take to improve your aural projection and better convey your true personality.
1. Record your voice first using a digital recorder or an old cassette player, start by saying “Testing 1-2-3”. If you feel confident about your sound, build up to saying your name or pseudonym on the recording device. This is a good way to find out if your phone voice comes across as too low, nasally or just needs a little work. If a person has a speech impediment, such as stuttering, they can slowly become comfortable and better prepare themselves to record an intriguing dating personal.
2. Write a short (but truthful) bio – This can include your job, education and things you enjoy doing in your spare time. It is best to save political affiliations, sexual habits and family information for an actual phone chat. Doing this will help you to deliver your message smoothly.
3. If you feel that your message may still need a little help, add a little background music. If you want to use something universally appealing such as Kenny G (am I kidding? Yes…unless you like the Kenny G-funk) or are going for a humorous angle, something by Weird Al Yankovich may be the answer. Realize that songs that suggest violence, misogyny or other controversial topics are not recommended. Also, the music should be in the background, not the voice itself and do not play an entire song before recording your phone personal.
4. Keep offensive crude jokes to a minimum. If someone has said that you had the potential to be the next Chris Rock or Lisa Lampanelli, then you may want to use this talent sparingly in your chat recording. A short, clean joke to break the ice will bring positive results. Save the racy stuff for when you get to know someone you meet through the phone chat line services.
5. Private parts should remain private. If a person has a nice physique, they can state that they are athletic, in shape, or proportioned to their height. People of varying sizes should state their body type in a way that is positive and not demeaning. Some good examples are big beautiful woman, hearty handsome man, thin as opposed to skinny, etc. As far as referencing certain parts of the body, you should consider it a privilege to the stranger to reveal that private information. Don’t be afraid to make people work for what it is that they would like to know specifically.
In short, you just want to sound friendly and approachable since people are meeting you over the telephone. Now, if a person feels inclined to make a phone personal recording of themselves speaking so slow that they sound as if they’re slurring their words or moaning, the feedback may not be what they were expecting. That is if they receive anything in their box at all. Then again, I am not the master of the universe, experiment a little and see what works for you.
