You can determine the number of available users for conversation through the appropriate use of “Search” criteria. Only "Language" is an obligatory criteria in the "Search" function, in other words, with more “Search” criteria used the more you can narrow down the number of more accurately assessed potential users with similar interests.

This application will do all the hard work for you by searching while using all your search criteria. Click on the “Search” option and set your criteria.

All you have to do is to simply broaden your search. In this way you will increase the number of users to whom you can talk to. Here is an example based on the previous one: Choose Language -> English Search Topic (Type) -> lady gaga. According to these new criteria you can expect to find more people who are happy to talk about Lady Gaga. They might be also interested in talking about her new dress as well.
In the previous example, you were advised to narrow your search criteria. Now, you should expand them. Here is a practical example how doing it: Choose Country -> United States Choose Language -> English Search Topic (Type) -> Lady Gaga new dress Choose Gender -> Female Choose Age -> 18 – 20
