The limitation is at odds with the flood of video onto Instagram, Whats App, and Facebook, following the rise in popularity of Snapchat.
The problem isn’t necessarily a general aversion to video dating, which has been around longer than smartphones and the internet.
Dating apps, eager to differentiate themselves, are quick to try new trends.
But when it comes to the biggest push in social media — video — options are curiously lacking.
The best lighting setup is to have two light sources, one coming from behind your monitor, another coming from the side. You’ll look distracted and noncommittal to the conversation. You don’t need to wear a shirt and tie, but looking like you just rolled out of bed — in a sloppy way, not a sexy one — seems lazy and disrespectful.
Wear color if you want to stand out from your backdrop.
Few things are more stressful than a Skype conversation that gets frozen and cut off over and over again. Some couples need to schedule a defined Skype-date window that has an end time, too, as chatting online can someone go on without end. Consider where you’re going to be when chatting over Skype. If you’re in a long-term, long-distance relationship, Skype is a way to introduce your partner to the things and people in your life that matter.
There’s always a chance your date will ask for a bit of a virtual tour of your space, so don’t just shove your dirty laundry barely out of view, either. Make sure you’re lit well so she can see your face — and so you look your best. If you’re hoping to avoid double chins and other awkward angles, keep the computer’s camera level with, or slightly above, your eye line. When you’re chatting, don’t stare at yourself on the screen. You’d dress up for an in-person date, so why not put a little effort into a Skype date?
