    Press any key to continue? C++

    OK so, I'm currently making a text based RPG game using C++ in a Microsoft visual c++ IDE. What I'm having trouble doing is finding a way to do a simple "Press any key to continue" to move onto the next cout message. I've ive been doin it in a very annoying way and I know there are much better ways of doing this.
    #include <iostream>
    using namespace std;
    int main()
    int x;
    cout << "Random message\n";
    cin >> x;     /* Ive been using cin to move onto the next cout by typing in a random
                           number/character then hitting enter, which then of course allows for the next 
                           cout message to be displayed to the screen */
    cout << "another random message\n";
