With so many online dating sites and random webcam chat sites, virtual dates have become a very common thing. Virtual dates should be treated just like regular dates, expect both parties are far away from each other. Although it may seem difficult to make virtual dates romantic, there are definitely ways to you can spice things up a little and win over your date’s heart. Here are some very useful tips on how to make your next virtual date as romantic as a real one.
Making dinner for the other person is incredibly thoughtful. Sure, they won’t be eating the meal, but you can show it to them on webcam and you can eat your own meal in front of the webcam. Although this may seem impolite, it’s actually quite romantic – you just need to know how to go about it. While eating your meal, go into details about how each food tastes, smells and looks. Show the food on the webcam – this will allow the other person to feel like they are right there with you.
Coordinate You Night
Planning ahead of time is a good way to approach virtual dates. A nice way to be romantic is to plan to have the exact same meal. You can start off the date by cooking the same meal on webcam at the same time. Then you can both sit down and eat that exact same thing on cam together. It’s the small things in life!
Go All Out
Don’t get cheap just because the other person is miles away. Get your date some flowers and something sweet like earrings or a necklace. Show what you got through the webcam and then ask for their address so you can send them by mail. It’s a sweet move that will go a long way.
Music in the Background
Using music is very important – with webcam dates, awkward silences can seem to go on forever. By playing music in the background, it takes away from that awkwardness. Avoid playing heavy metal or rap – stick with nice background music that you would hear in restaurants or other public places.
Light Some Candles
Candles are very romantic and even though the person is miles away, they will still be able to see the flames through the webcam. Light up some candles and dim the lights. This will create a romantic setting, which is also one of the most important things to remember. A romantic setting is the first important step to take. Again, you don’t need to do much – just a couple candles and some background music is enough for a romantic setting.
Watch a Movie Together
If you want to really get romantic, have both of you rent a movie (preferably a romantic comedy) and then watch it together. Keep the webcams on and keep talking to each other. You don’t actually have to pay attention to the movie, it just really makes things less awkward if any silences occur. Romantic comedies are also a great way to get girls all mushy and lovey.
