These days, finding love online is more and more common.  With online dating, all you have to do is enter some information on a computer screen and you get endless choices of potential mates from all over the world.  How easy is that? Well, easy to meet singles, that’s for sure.  Online dating is certainly a lot of quantity, but how about quality?  Well, quality is comparable to other forms of meeting people, depends on the people you meet and how genuine and sincere they are.  But you already knew that, right?

So let’s say you do meet someone online and they are everything you ever wanted.  Great! Right? Well, what if they live in the land of far far away? Now you’ve got a problem.  Is it worth giving it a go? Should you try anyway? Does love conquer all?  Well, I say it’s so hard to meet the right person that if you do meet them and they are somewhere else in the world, then you still need to try.  Call me crazy, but it’s worth the adventure and hardship if you get the right match in the end.

So you meet someone, you want to give it a go.  What’s the best way to communicate, well Skype is of course!  Skype gives you the opportunity to see and speak with each other.  It beats emails, telephone and texting by a long shot.  But, you still need to follow regular dating protocol as well as make some concessions.  Here are some that I’ve personally found helpful:

Successful Skype Dating Tips

  •  Treat it like a real date – look nice, have conversation topics ready
  • Make a time to meet, keep your appointments and make sure there are no distractions – this shows you respect the other person and their time (very important!)
  • Be yourself, don’t think about it as being on camera, just be natural
  • Let the relationship progress naturally and treat it like it’s real
  • Try not to do the naked stuff until later on and you are both in agreement (actually you shouldn’t do it until you meet in person and do it for real, then use Skype for ongoing “maintenance”)

So if you’re single, dating and falling in love on Skype is both possible and a good option if your preferred mate is in the land of far far away.  So don’t shy away from trying, and, if you really do truly fall in love, then you can book a plane ticket and spend some real time together and gauge your face to face chemistry.  Talk about exciting! I’m all for it!! I want my ideal partner, if he lives somewhere else, I would be willing to move there or have him move here.  I’m open to it.  For me it’s about meeting the right person, wherever they are.  Do I have a personal story to tell? Well, perhaps … stay tuned!

Happy Dating!

      I love this idea. Actually there should be more online video options, at least in addition to the pictures right? You would think it would be easier and give you a better idea of the person. The difference of seeing someone’s actions, the way they move their arms and the way they talk vs a still image, to decide if you are genuinely attracted to a person can be really important. I think it could lead to a more genuine connection.

      hurry and download skype! you never know who you’re going to meet! But seriously, long distance relationships are hard and not for everyone, but if my knight in shining armor is far away it doesn’t make him any less my knight in shining armor … he just has to ride his horse that much farther to fetch me!

    I really need to invest in a good computer—maybe if I had in the past, I would not have gone out with so many freaks. 🙂 Great post!

      thanks! well, you know what it’s nice to have the option … even for people that aren’t so far away instead of picking up the phone you can actually interact face to face.

    Part 1: I fell completely and hopelessly in love with a guy online. We talked every day for 4 months, had the best phone sex and I felt he really filled every need I had and we couldn’t wait to spend forever together. Then one day he was GONE! Nothing. No more. I figure he had something going on and was lying to me, had to quit me cold turkey…OR he got hit by a truck KABLOOUIE!! I like the truck better because then he didn’t actually break my heart.

    Part 2: Skype is AWESOME for drunkness with long distance friends!

      Don’t you just love guys who just disappear off the face of the earth, I’ve had quite a few of those, and yes, I chose to believe they got hit by a bus … or a train … or my fist … wait, where was I?
