More video chatting

We’re using the video chatting and voice call tools in dating apps more than we did before the pandemic, too. When I was single, if I wanted to do some voice or video calls before doing an IRL date, most men just pushed for the in-person meetup. They wanted to skip that phone call. It was hard to argue with them since you could say chemistry is best determined IRL. However, that was also a form of rushing things. Now, women can say, “Let’s just video chat for a while,” and men don’t have much ground to stand on if they want to skip that step. It offers the opportunity to build an emotional connection before complicating things with the physical, and it provides an opportunity to assess a man’s communication skills early on.
