Are you not a phone person? Did you hone your computer chat flirting skills in the late 90’s through early 00’s? Do you like P in V? This is why AIM was invented: as a tool for the less skilled vocal conservationist’s to set the stage for some solid, lets meet up later and see if you’re not too awkward in person, P in V.
With AIM you can’t bank on sarcasm, wit, or other vocal inflection to be received by your flirtatious counterpart. However, when the chemistry is right, this can be a blessing by making you seem more clever and funny than you really are. So get that screen name, and use your plethora of youtube clips to show your great internet taste, while you multi task for 4 hours between AIM flirting, watching Team America on Comedy Central and Facebook stalking on a lonely Wednesday night.
