Navigating Unwanted Chats on Moment
Team Moment lay's down a simple template to help you disengage your way from people who are not interested in your Moment!
We get it – you get your match on Moment, initially drawn together by the promise of shared activity. However, as the conversation unfolds, you find yourself in a seemingly endless and sometimes unwanted chat that strays far from the very activity that brought you together in the first place. These situations can be a bit perplexing, you want those chats to be enriching, fun, and centered around the activities you're passionate about. So, let's explore some effective ways to ensure your chats stay focused and enjoyable, allowing you to connect with like-minded individuals who share your enthusiasm for Moment activities.
1. Genuine Interest Check
Begin by steering the conversation towards your common interest: the love for outdoor activities. Politely inquire about their recent experiences or what excites them about it. This gently reminds them of the initial connection while keeping the conversation relevant.
2. Polite Redirect
If the conversation veers off-topic repeatedly, gently steer it back by expressing your passion for the activity. This can act as a polite reminder of why you're here - to connect over your shared love for outdoor activities.
3. Honest Communication
If the person continues to chat about unrelated topics, it's okay to be honest but polite. Explain that you joined Moment to connect with like-minded individuals for outdoor adventures. Honesty is always the best policy.
4. Different Paths
Sometimes, despite your best efforts, the conversation may not align with your interests. In this case, it's okay to express that you feel your paths are different. It's important to be respectful and wish them well.
5. Blocking as a Last Resort
Blocking should be a last resort. Only consider it if the person continues to disregard your expressed interests and boundaries despite your attempts to redirect the conversation. Prioritize respectful communication before taking such a step.
Learning to end conversations nicely could be straight-forward on Moment. Help them see what your intentions to use Moment were and that banter is not your thing. We trust, engaging in conversations within the Moment community should be a pleasant and enjoyable experience. Utilizing these communication strategies can help ensure that your interactions remain aligned with your shared passion for outdoor activities.
