Skype dates have their own unique set of challenges and it’s important to address them early on.
I think it’s extremely unlikely that your Skype calls are recorded … I’ll dive into a number of reasons I believe that to be the case.
So the question then becomes, since they probably don’t record everything, why would they record conversation? It’s possible – perhaps even likely – that government agencies have access, under certain conditions, to your Skype conversations.
In this regard, I point to what I believe boils down to many people’s over-inflated sense of self-importance (and even occasional paranoia). If that’s you, my advice is very simple: don’t use Skype.
It’s also hard to sustain an online-only relationship, so consider the consequences of Skyping over the long haul.
Online chemistry is no guarantee of real-world chemistry, so be careful about any emotional attachment that develops before you meet in person.
In fact, most of the great features we love about Skype on our Windows or Mac PCs work great on the i Pad.
Once scheduled, treat the online date with the same respect you would an in-person one and be ready to chat on time. A private location is often best, as your significant other might be self conscious about being seen and heard by strangers in a coffee shop. (Sipping a beverage is fine, but chewing on camera is rarely appealing.) Refrain from Googling witty responses. Give your date your undivided attention, as you would on a dinner date. Without the ability to reach out and touch your love interest, be intentional about sharing your feelings for him/her. And finally, Skype in the nude might sound appealing to some, be warned that your partner has the ability to capture a screen shot at any moment without you knowing it. It will get harder and harder to maintain regular Skype dates if there’s no possibility of closing the distance gap in the near future.The new i Pad is really an amazing communication tool.In addition to all the regulars; email, i Message and Face Time, the i Pad also works with Skype.Thanks to the magic of technology, couples in long-distance relationships can still have some quality face time. Let Skype provide visuals that phone calls and text messages can’t. You may trust him/her now, but if the relationship doesn’t last, those images might — and come back to haunt you.
