Skype Dating: The First Date On Skype
Skype dating has become very popular in the last while. It helps with long distance relationships and can be a lot of fun. It can also be a little weird. If you’re online dating and you meet someone on the other side of the country it might be a good idea to have a couple of dates on Skype before you fork over the cash for a plane ticket; not knowing what you might be getting yourself into.
Kelly McClure explains the first date on Skype in a way that will make you chuckle below. The most important thing is that you just have fun with it. You may never meet this person in real life; so enjoy yourself. And wear a hat.
The First Date
For a good first Skype date to reach its full potential, it’s important to treat it the same way you would a real date. A flesh date? We’ll nail down the terminology later.
Leading up to the first date, make sure to set a specific time, being mindful of each other’s time zones. Write the time down in your planner and make a little notation that says “first date with whoever” and draw some hearts around it. Don’t tell any of your friends about it, because that’s embarrassing.
On the night of the date, start getting ready a few hours beforehand by cleaning your body from the waist up, and putting on a hat. The hat will serve as sort of a conversational safety, because eventually your date will ask why you’re wearing a hat indoors, and then you can respond with something funny like “because I have dandruff” or, “because it makes me feel fancy.” Make sure to ask lots of questions and nod when she/he is talking so they know you’re listening. You may have to exaggerate the nods because, depending on the quality of a person’s Internet connection, sometimes it’s hard to tell what from what. Once you’ve gathered all of the information you need to gather, initiate a longish block of silence where you just sit and stare at them with what you feel to be a sincere facial expression and then say “I have to go” and log off. Always keep them wanting more. Maybe call up a friend and tell them “I just did the funniest thing ever” and expect them to laugh while quickly realizing that they’re very concerned about you.
