Voice>? June 24, 2004 4:47 PM

I am really curious about why is it so very important for a woman to hear a mans voice on the phone prior to meeting>? That has really boggled my brain for decades! I have herd woman tell other people that "She will not date someone because of the sound of their voice". What is up with that>? I mean, personally I will meet anyone, regardless of the sound of their voice. Ladies, fess up, what is this all about>? Inlighten us!  [ send green star]
Hi Steve...... June 25, 2004 1:20 PM

I think part of it is 'cause you get a batter feel of a person when you hear them just like you do when you see them......expression, demeanor etc......also to make sure he doesn't have that shaky 'I'm playing with my self as we speak' thing happenning in his maybe just to know it really is a man were talking to....  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I know I like to hear what a guy sounds like- the way he speaks, what words he uses and all that. Lets face it some voices we hear irritate us- just like some kinds of music or vocalists do.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

The inflection in the voice is everything. One can tell so much without ever meeting, at least I can. I can tell if he/she is sexy, an ass or a tender or passionate person. I'd rather see the eyes first for they are the gateway to the soul.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I agree with Margaret. I'd rather see a person's eyes before they even speak. That not possible, I'd rather talk to them a minute or two on the phone. Still, if no chemistry or I get that jittery 'feeling', I'd politely opt out...I think.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
Hi I'm new. June 29, 2004 1:40 AM

Hope this helps Steve Q. My dad always said that you should worry most about the way a guy smells. The reason is that you are likely to get upset with someone if you are in close quarters with them and can't stand their smell. I think voices are the same. I fell in love with my husband before I met him because of his laugh. I actually hear him laugh my second day at work and set off searching for the person behind the laugh. He didn't look like the kind of guy I would like, but I knew from his laugh, smile, body language that he was a kindred spirit. He has been my best friend for 6 years, and my husband for 3 1/2.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
Newbie here June 29, 2004 9:21 AM

Hi I guess everyone has their opinion. Well, here is mine. I go for a persons personality. I talked to my hubby for 2 tears over the phone before we ever met. He had a wonderful personality, but I really needed to meet this person to truly see if he was for real. Well, we have been married almost 16 years, have 3 semi wonderful kids. He is still the same wonderful guy I talked to on the phone. A persons voice can tell you some things, but I think meeting in person is better. I get vibes from people. They can sound sweet and chjarming, have a wonderful voice, but be the biggest A@#hole I have ever met. I run into that a lot. I have met people that have had the worst sounding voice on the phone, I was afraid to meet them, but then once we met, I thought "this person sure don't seem the same as the one I talked to"  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Michelle, yeah, the personality counts of course. Ya'll got to be friends first, at least that is what it sounds like. I think that is what makes love last, become friends first, then when the 'in love' thing wans a bit you are still best friends! Sounds like you two have a wonderful life, I am happy for you all. Same thing with my room mate, we got to be friends first over the phone before we ever met. Good thing, too. ;0 You can listen to my voice and tell just how sweet I am on my home page by listening to my poem "Fly Away." By the way (Steve) that used to be a song, I still have the music to it...hint, Peace, Margaret  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
The inner voice June 30, 2004 10:20 AM

I fell in love with my current husband via email...BEFORE ever hearing his voice or meeting him in person. I don't know if being in love did the trick, but fortunately (for all concerned), his voice and looks seemed just perfect to me when we DID eventually meet! I am attracted to someone's "inner voice" -- its external sound or pitch just rounds out the wonderful colours of the voice from within. And if a voice is so important, how do deaf people fall in love???? You've got to listen to the heart...not the sound! Hope that helps, Steve! Tracy  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
