So a couple of weeks ago I did something a little crazy -- I went on a 10-minute Skype date with Glamour Single-Ish blogger Ryan Dodge
. Ryan oh-so-generously volunteered to go on three Skype dates
with me and two other girls in the name of exploring what it's like to date via video
. We shot the ish about cats, bikes, tattoos and how totally weird it was to be meeting each other "face to face" over the computer.
You can check out a mini-excerpt of our mini-date here:
As Ryan noted, Skype dating makes sense "if you're not sure you want to drop $100 on dinner, it's a good way to go." Thanks, Ry.
So, would you Skype date
? Or is it way too weird? Tell us in the comments. And if you think I should go on a real-life date with Ryan, you can vote for me on Glamour's site this Friday ...
