Before you Skype your love interest, however, here are some things to know: 1. Before you Skype your significant other, make sure your Internet connection is great. Consider your busy lives — and respective time zones — before scheduling a Skype date. 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. Skype and Pay Pal announced today that they have teamed up to allow easy, in-the-moment payments between Skype users.Should you be on a Skype call or in a chat and need to send over some cash, you can now do that using your Pay Pal account without ever leaving Skype.Now it has been integrated into the main Skype app.It’s accessed by pressing one of the small buttons in the top right hand corner of the screen, when it is available.You’ll need the newest version of Skype in order to get going. On a related note, I can’t help but applaud Pay Pal for all of their recent announcements surrounding mobile payments and integrations with other apps.
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.
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?
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.
The app allows users to control their naughty texts by automatically deleting sent photos after 10 seconds.
While some users swear that Snapchat is more than just a convenient way to cover up compromising photos, this spam campaign certainly takes advantage of the app's racy reputation.
