10 Iceshakers for Shake-to-Chat

Skout’s Shake-to-Chat feature is a gamble – a safe gamble, because you have nothing to lose, but a gamble nonetheless because how do you begin a conversation with someone you know nothing about? xemenia and her mom 434

Shake-to-Chat is simple: Open Skout on your phone, select Shake-to-Chat, then shake your phone and see which random person you’re matched up with. Start typing and see what happens!

What to say to a complete stranger? You need an iceshaker! Icebreakers are for conferences, but an iceshaker is that opening line you use when you don’t know who’s on the other side.

Remember: Skout is for much more than dating, so your Chat partner could be seeking friendship, an activity partner or simply someone with which to talk. So think twice about being aggressively flirty, and do try one of these iceshakers during your next Shake-to-Chat:

  • What superpower would you like to have?
  • Dog or cat person?
  • What’s your poison?
  • Would you rather go forward or back in time?
  • Last movie you saw?
  • Your most-despised food?
  • Favorite part of the past weekend?
  • Who would play you in a movie?
  • Worst job you’ve ever had?
  • If you could have an endless supply of food, what would you eat?

Now get shakin’!
