And as we all know, the eyes are the window to the soul..through a video camera. You should test out your camera to confirm it’s working beforehand.And just as you would get dressed up and look your best if you were meeting at a local restaurant, you should be doing the same for a video date. Make sure you have accounts with multiple providers to avoid the frustration of technological glitches. Arrange to be in quiet room (not walking on a busy street) and don’t multi-task. If someone doesn’t feel like a priority in your life, they aren’t likely to stick around. Giving your full attention also says something about your values and shows the person on the other line you are invested in the relationship. Show respect, and act as you would if you were meeting in person.
You’ll need extra hours and funds for travel, and more patience in developing your relationship.The exception to this is if you’re speaking late at night because you live in different time zones.
