Video dating has opened a new world in the online dating community. Most laptops now come equipped with built in webcams, and desktop computers can be outfitted with a webcam for very little money. This has made the online dating experience that much richer.
Real Time At Home
Once you’ve met someone and you feel as though there is chemistry, using video dating allows you to connect with that person in real time without having to meet in public. This makes it safer to go on the first date. You can just grab a cup of coffee and sit in front of your computer. You will be able to see the other person in real time and chat naturally without worrying about going out.
Photos
Before video chatting people had to rely on user submitted photos to get an idea of what the other person looks like. It’s not uncommon for people to use outdated photos for profiles, or even use photos that aren’t of them. The idea is that the other people will form enough of a connection that they will overlook this. It can be disheartening to think you are meeting a sexy blond for a first date, only to find a middle aged brunette. Video dating has eliminated this entirely. You get to see the person as they are, not as they were in a photo taken 20 years before.
Sex
There is no safer sex than web chat sex. For those who use online dating sites just to hook up, this can provide a safer alternative to the traditional one night stand. You never leave your home and never have physical contact with the other person, but can still experience a satisfying sexual experience with someone else.
