The challenge could be running across the right person at the right time since the chat room option tends to be quieter than one might expect on a site with so many users.

This site shouldn't be confused with the matchmaking site, Ok Cupid.

Cupid doesn't just have chat rooms for singles looking for love and flirtation, the site also has tips for meeting the right people, chatting safely and relationship advice.

Some sites allow you to chat for free with the option to upgrade for access to other features while others are completely free.

The more involved the registration process the slower the chat rooms seem to be, though speed could vary by location, day of the week and time of day.

If you're chatting with someone you like and have to go but hope to continue the conversation at another time, you can become friends on the site.

This requires you to have an account which is quick and easy to set up.

Chat Reviews gave it a 5.0 (out of 5.0), and reviews mention "loads of genuine people" and note that it's a "great way to meet people." The name Stranger Meetup sounds dangerous and maybe even a bit intriguing.

You can chat anonymously with a stranger you're randomly paired with as soon as you click to chat.

Insta Chat Rooms lets you pick a user name, say whether you're male, female, or a couple, and then wander right in to chat.

It may feel like walking out into the wilderness, not being sure what you'll find.

Once you have an account, Stranger Meetup will also keep track of your recent chat partners, so even if you forget to add a friend as you're leaving the conversation, you can still contact the person again later.
