) Sorry you lost, you'll have to take off all your clothes. Do you want to go and do what I'm going to tell my friends we did anyway? You look like the type of guy/girl who's heard every line in the book... Do you know the essential difference between sex and conversation? 1) He calls you ‘baby’ If you meet someone online and within a few messages they’re telling you how much you mean to them, and how they love you to bits: stay away.

This mechanism means that despite its cartoon livery of ginger cats, Meow Chat combines some of more Wild West elements of socializing online – its chat rooms are chaotic, full of belligerent and friendly users in pretty much equal measure, and the one-on-one chats are as unpredictable as that stalwart of the genre: Chat Roulette.
The app itself is available for i OS and Android and asks users to create a miniature profile by either importing information from Facebook or just punching in a username, email address, password (and, of course, a profile picture)goofy to creepy pretty quickly, with the chatrooms full of abusive language and invitations from strangers to start "chatting in private" - an especially worrying feature given that the sign-up age is just 13 years old and requires no external verification (and users can always choose to hide their age).
The app also offers the chance to browse profiles in your area, and judging by the short bios some users have written (“no nudes plz”; “don’t message me if your [sic] 50”) this feature can be a magnet for creeps.
