The Webcam Experience

***Attention Out-of-Towners***
Tired of all that traveling in and out of NY for dates? Spending too many hours in the car/ on the bus/ on the train/ on the plane en-route to your destination city to meet your date? Losing too hours of sleep by traveling through the night? Spending too much money on the 'travel' part of the dating experience? Ever get the feeling that you spend more time staring at the highway/train tracks/cloudy sky then you do at your job? Feel like the out-of-town dating issue is bringing you down?
If you've answered yes to one or more of the questions above, then WebCam Dating is for you! With today's modern technology and the internet being so convenient, why not take advantage of the easy accessable, user friendly, messengers services and get to know someone without the hassle of traveling and wasting time.

I feel like this fake infomercial has been running on and on ever since my last few trips to NY, when my dates turned out to be a total waste of time. Yes, pathetic as it sounds, when you spend umpteen hours in a car/on a bus and there's nothing else to do but space out and stare at the windows, it really gets you thinking. Either I can play the date over again in my head and point out all the things that made it so awful, or I can try and see what can be done to make my next date easier and less disappointing. Well, for those of you who like to compete with 'well my date was the worst because...' try and top this one. The last time I went out with a guy, he was an out of towner currently living in NY and even though the Shadchan said he would travel to the city where I live, he had no idea of this and asked if I can come to NY to see him. So, me, being told (as usual) how a-M-A-Z-I-N-G this guy was and how he didn't 'just say yes' to most girls, drove down almost immediately. I got up at the crack of dawn and spent who knows how long in the car. By mid afternoon we met in NY and within 1/2 hour of meeting this guy-i knew he wasn't for me. To cut a long story short, about 2 hours later, I was back in a car, driving the long hours on the highway and made it home by late evening, annoyed, upset, albeit exhausted!
When I came home, a close friend of mine suggested why not make use of a webcam and sorta date a guy in the comfort of your own home, while being able to see him and converse in a chilled out atmosphere without having the hassle of traveling. That way it wouldn't upset either party and they both wouldn't havta waste time away from work/learning, etc. I thought it was a great idea. You don't even havta wear high heels! ok, all kidding aside, what do you think? would u give it a try?

  1. Give it a try, why not? As long as you guys are set up properly, all the webcam can do is help.
