A voice mailbox is like a personal answering machine for every member of Tango. It allows people to leave you messages when you are not online, and for you to review your messages whenever it's convenient for you. And should you want to get back to someone interesting, they will also have a mailbox for you to leave a message in, even if he or she isn't online at the time. Your voice mailbox is the home of your voice ad. This is where you should put some serious thought into what it is you hope to get out of the system, as your ad will be available 24 hours a day in the category you select. More detail about yourself and what it is you are looking for will get you the best responses. See the following section on Sending and Receiving Messages for more information on recording the best ad possible.

The Connector is for people who are online at the same time, and can be a great place to get to know someone informally, before arranging a meeting or while you decide if he or she is right for you. Connector conversations are unmonitored and one-on-one, so you can chat about anything you like. In the Connector you can start by recording a greeting that describes yourself and the kind of person you would like to talk to. This greeting disappears from the Connector when you leave it, so you can have fun with your Connector greeting even if your voice personals mailbox ad is more serious.

We have many different categories of ads on TangoPersonals. More than you expect! Are you looking for that special someone?

Tango was created to connect like-minded people who are looking for the relationship of their lives, whatever that may be. Some of our callers are extremely focused on finding the perfect partner, while others are online just to have fun and to meet new people. Our ad categories allow you to narrow the field to those most likely to be sharing your goals for using our service.
