Make it successful with these tips. Instructions Step 1: Remember to smile, especially if this is your first date; you want to come across as friendly. Don't monopolize the conversation, but don't let the other person do all the talking, either.
Have a cheat sheet -- out of camera view -- with conversation starters in case you get tongue-tied or want to switch gears. Step 2: Cut the other person some slack.
Having a webcam date can be stressful, so give them the a little more benefit of the doubt than you would on an in-person date. You can always pull the plug on the evening if it turns out your instincts were right.
FACT: 75 percent of men polled liked the idea of webcam dating, compared to 44 percent of women. TIP: Elevate your webcam slightly if you're worried about a double chin.
Going on a virtual date? here's how to make it not suck.
Step 3: Position yourself so that you are seen from the armpits up. Position the camera so it's at eye level.
Remove anything from the background that's distracting or embarrassing. TIP: If you're a woman, go easy on foundation and powder: the camera date up every layer. Step 4: Wear something red; people often find the opposite sex more attractive when they're wearing webcam. And make it a solid color; patterns don't translate well on a webcam.
Step 5: Turn on a desk lamp, or move near a window to light your face. Just make sure the light is not directly beside you or behind you; the most flattering light is the one that illuminates your face at an angle.
