For some, the pace of modern life and its pressures does not leave them with the option of socializing much.
Finding a suitable date through a dating site, which has thousands of profiles of varied age groups and ethnicity, is much easier for them.
Sometimes people put up their air-brushed pictures on dating sites to make them more presentable and attractive.
It tends to create disappointment when a person meets the so-called flawless chat friend for the first time and realizes that the truth is far from different.
The previous practice of getting acquainted with like-minded people through friends, clubs or parties is getting taken over by the Internet.
Most young men and women do not believe any more that they will stumble upon their soul mate on the street.
It is possible to authenticate a person’s identity via video chatting, which will ensure that the person you have been chatting to is the same person whom you are looking forward to meeting.
Safety issues with web camera – While web camera gives you closer access to a person’s private life do not forget that even the other person is closely scrutinizing you and your surroundings.
Easy to operate – If you are a native English speaker, then talking to a Filipino or Thai girl can be really frustrating as she may not be able to reply to your texts quickly.
This problem can be solved through a video chat as you can communicate better, looking at each other's expressions, gestures or pictures which add laughter and fun to your conversation.
Protection from scammers – Dating sites are only a medium for you to connect with a potential partner, but not every person behind an innocent-looking picture has the same intentions.
You can never really be sure that the photograph of friends and family posted by a particular individual actually belongs to him/her.
So, if you want to continue the relationship within a few days or weeks of online chat, then insist on a video chat with the girl.
