The tagline for Skype is “doing things together, whenever you’re apart.” Sounds like a great concept when it comes to paying a visit to your grandma in Minnesota (without hopping on a plane) or setting up a face-to-face meeting with that business client in Amsterdam (again, without taking to the skies).
But what happens when you’d like to plan a Skype date with that new gal in your life?
There are a few things to think about before getting into the nitty-gritty. Have you met this lady in person, or is she a potential mate you met through an online dating site?
If you answer “yes” to question number two, then you need to treat a Skype date like a real date. Ambiance is key, as is setting the mood and making her feel at ease.
Here’s a step-by-step guide to setting up a Skype date with a woman you just met online:
Take into account different time zones, and confirm and then confirm again that she knows the date is, say, Tuesday at 7 p.m.
If you’re planning dinner and a movie, then tell her to order Chinese takeout and rent a specific cheesy kung-fu film. That way the two of you will be doing the same thing at the same time and it will create conversation.
If you happen to know your new gal’s home address (don’t ask for it if she hasn’t offered), then take the Skype date a step further and have the food and movie delivered directly to her home.
Go completely above and beyond and include candles and a nice bottle of wine.
If you’re planning a Skype date, then treat it like a real, in-person date. Don’t think you can get away with sweatpants and a frozen pizza just because she can’t see your filthy bachelor pad.
Make the evening special just as if you brought her to a nice restaurant or to see a play.
