Why video calls are a great idea for dating
Work meetings may give Zoom a bad rep, but video calls are an excellent dating tool.
- They give you a good idea if you’ll hit it off in person. No sparks? Then save yourself the time and forget the date.
- They help build familiarity, so you’ll have an even better real life date.
- It’s the perfect protection against catfish. If you’re not sure your Tinder match is who she says she is, just get her onto Facetime and see for yourself.

For more details and ideas, keep reading.
#1: Watch a movie together
This is the biggest problem when watching a movie together.
With everyone using different platforms, you may not be able to watch the same films, let alone at the same time.
So what do you do?
If you’re a person who likes to say “Arrrrrrrr!”, you may want to stream for her. But if you’re more into ninjas than pirates, it’s best to pick a platform that you’re both subscribed to.
Some streaming media have built-in synchronizing options to improve your watching experiences. Is that not the case for you?
Then you want to use a browser extension like Teleparty or Netflix Party to sync up.
How do you increase the movie watching experience?
Stay in contact.
- You can call them (in case your camera is broken, or you’re in the dark).
- Facetime/ Zoom.
- Send texts through the Netflix Party chat.
And regardless of your choice, don’t forget to make occasional comments like:
“Omg! This is so exciting!”
“I hate that guy!”
#2: Develop your brains together
One of the best ways to bond over a distance is to do the same activity together, from far away.
If you see your online crush as more than another notch in your belt, I definitely recommend the next date idea.
Reading the same book.
I won’t go into the details on how to set up the idea exactly.
But I’ll cover a few options that make the reading experience fun and get you closer together.
Obviously you don’t just want to recommend any book.
Like music, every book has its own flavor. And you want to make sure the flavor appeals to her.
So how do you pick the right book?
- Does she have an interest in personal growth? Pick a kickass self-development book and make up your own calls to action.
- Is your crush not particularly a bookworm? Read the light and magical book The Little Prince. WARNING: It’s a highly emotional book that will definitely trigger lots of feelings. And if she’s reading this book together with you, she may slowly fall in love with you. So please do not read The Little Prince unless you potentially see a future with your crush.
- Does your online lady-friend set your loins on fire? Why not read an erotic novel? Recommending porn may scare her off, unless you send her, “Ever thought about reading 50 Shades Of Grey?” Almost every girl who hasn’t read it, is interested in giving it a shot. And if you read this novel together, she’ll definitely get turned on by its contents and subconsciously link those feelings of arousal to you.
Feel free to read whatever you like, the above bullet points simply serve as inspiration.
#3: Get your sweat on
As you well know, most dates are stressful!
Sometimes enough to break a sweat.
And it’s not attractive to host a video call with the Niagara Falls streaming down your face or out of your armpits.
If you have a malfunctioning sweat machine and like to exercise, try a workout date!
You can pick from a range of options, depending on your interests and size of your home.
- Pilates class.
There really is no wrong workout as long as it’s fun AND there’s an instructional video to follow. YouTube has countless of these.
(Please watch the entire video before proposing the date, so you can match the workout to her fitness level).
Do you ever find yourself staring at a text from your crush not knowing what to say?
Or do you struggle with making the conversation fun?
Stop stressing and check out my 10 Texts That Always Work.
A series of copy-pasta texts with:
– Fun answers to boring questions
– Playful teases that will raise attraction
– A smooth way to ask her out on a date
– And more
Once you’re set on the workout, you want to arrange your home “gym” so you have enough room to clunk about without accidentally yeeting your laptop through your television.
Because your laptop will be on the floor or coffee table to film you during the call.
What are the benefits of the workout date?
- It’s low stress, because you’ll be focused on exercising instead of talking
- Any stress you do have will soon leave as you literally exercise it out your body
- You can get your perv on and get a good impression of her body (yes, ladies. Men like to see your bodies move. Why else do you think the Guy in the sky gave you parts that jiggle?)
#4: Soak up vitamin D
Just because you have to socially distance yourself, doesn’t mean you can’t go outside.
If the weather’s nice, go outdoors and find a semi-quiet space of nature.
Perhaps a (national) park.
Once at your beautiful and peaceful destination, grab your phone and start Facetiming.
Don’t forget to make epic jokes:
“Hey. Why don’t you say something about my nice perfume? Don’t you like it? I put it on specially for you.” While you press your camera into your neck.
That said, Facetiming may be difficult if you’re hiking.
You don’t want to trip over a rock and fly headfirst into a ravine.
In that case, put the phone away and use your earpods to do a walk and walk. That means actually using your phone as a phone. I know, shocker.
Do you see a gorgeous view or a family of deer?
Snap a photo and send it to her.
In case it wasn’t clear, you want to both be hiking through nature.
Doing the same activity from afar is what builds connection and makes it seem like you’re on a real date.
“Oh my god! You won’t believe what I’m seeing. A fox just popped out of the bushes!”
#5: Set up a sampling
No matter what, you can always make your date a success with your elegant pal…
You obviously don’t want to Facetime while chugging Jägerbombs. It’s a date, not a frat house.
You simply want to enjoy a confidence-boosting beverage. And add a little joy with a colorful drink.
And perhaps a charcuterie board. Pronounced, shar-koo-tuh–ree. (I’m not trying to insult your intelligence, that’s a reminder for myself.)
Anyway, this is a fancy grown-upword for a tray piled with cured meats, cheeses, crackers, fruits, nuts, and other yummy goodness.
When do you start your cocktail date?
I think it’s the most fun to turn on the camera while you make the cocktails.
Yes, both your attention is mostly focused on cocktail making.
But that’s exactly why it’s good.
The first few minutes of the date is almost always a little awkward.
Your social muscles are stiff, and you don’t know each other yet.
But if you can slowly warm up to each other while making cocktails, you don’t have to force awkward small talk.
You can instead focus on your cocktail and casually describe what you’re doing.
No pressure for deep conversation makes for a light-hearted start.
After a few minutes of cocktail prep, you have the most challenging part of the date behind you.
All that’s left to do is take your yummy beverage and sip it down while you talk to a pretty lady.
And don’t forget to clink your glass against your camera.
#6: Fall in love
Over two decades ago, a psychologist successfully invented a love potion.
Although it’s less a potion and more of an experience.
But more importantly…
The love potion works!
What am I talking about?
Dr. Aron’s 36 questions.
The questions start off light with questions like, “Would you like to be famous?” and “If you could invite anyone in the world to dinner, who would it be?”
But the questions increasingly become more personal. Each question asks you and your date to open up a little bit more.
I won’t spoil any more, but Aron’s love tonic creates a level of intimacy that normally takes weeks if not months to reach.
So what do you do on the date?
You set up a video date with your crush or girlfriend with the idea of going through these questions. Don’t make it a surprise, because it definitely doesn’t feel like a natural conversation.
So be sure she’s up for it.
Also, make sure you have a good camera.
The ending asks you to hold eye contact for four minutes.
So you want to be sure she can your eyes just like in person. Including that sexy moist shine of your eyeballs.
WARNING: Once you go through the Q&A, one (if not both of you) may fall in love. So please be sure to tell her what she’s getting herself into.
#7: Tour museums around the world
Now this distance date is pretty dope but also TIME SENSITIVE.
What am I talking about exactly?
A virtual tour of world-class museums.
Many museums offer virtual tours, but they also change the exhibitions and sometimes remove the tour altogether.
Here comes a list of museum tours that you can do as of the moment that I’m writing this article. But they may be removed by the time you read this.
So be sure to Google ‘virtual museum tours’ for the most current digital trips.
- The Louvre in Paris.
- The J. Paul Getty in Los Angeles.
- The Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
- Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
- The Vatican Museum in Rome.
What else can I say but…
GET YOUR NERD ON, YA NERDY NERD!
#8: Find out your love language(s) together
This is a wonderful date to figure out more about yourself AND your crush or girlfriend.
In case you didn’t know, your love language is how you most like to receive love.
Which could be:
- Words of affirmation
- Acts of service
- Receiving gifts
- Quality time
- Physical touch
What do you do?
You fire up your video call of choice, have a little chit-chat, and introduce the 5 Love Languages Quiz.
Whether you choose to do the couple’s quiz or singles quiz is up to you.
But if you’re still dating, be sure to do the couple’s quiz as a joke:
“We’ve already Zoom called twice. We’re practically married.”
Then you can read out the questions and go over them together.
It’ll be fun and useful to hear for you both to hear what type of love you like to receive most.
Enjoy your new level of trust and intimacy with your lady friend.
#9: Play video games together
Just because you can’t be together doesn’t mean your Zoom call has to be boring.
Want to add some excitement to your dates?
Try out Houseparty
A video chat app for iOS and Android that also lets you play games.
The app works as follows.
You host or join a houseparty (aka video chat) with up to eight people.
Private lobbies exist too. Just double-tap the padlock icon on your screen. Or hit the smiley face on your home screen and click on the cog button to open settings.
Once she has the app too, you can invite her to a video call and play one of four games.
- Heads Up. Where one player has to act out a word or activity and the other has to guess the activity
- Quick Draw. A virtual version of Pictionary
- Chips and Guac. Which is essentially Cards Against Humanity
And especially useful when you quickly run out of things to say.
Are you a video game nerd who plays REAL multiplayer games like Hearthstone, League of Legends and Call of Duty?
Find out if your lady friend is a gamer girl.
If so, fire up your favorite multiplayer game and REK some noobs.
This almost marks the end of today’s video call date ideas, but I have one last gift to give.
