There’s always a chance your date will ask for a bit of a virtual tour of your space, so don’t just shove your dirty laundry barely out of view, either. Make sure you’re lit well so she can see your face — and so you look your best. If you’re hoping to avoid double chins and other awkward angles, keep the computer’s camera level with, or slightly above, your eye line. When you’re chatting, don’t stare at yourself on the screen. You’d dress up for an in-person date, so why not put a little effort into a Skype date? The best lighting setup is to have two light sources, one coming from behind your monitor, another coming from the side. You’ll look distracted and noncommittal to the conversation.

She manipulates the victim to include video of his face during their video exchange. Read this post by a Reddit user who was scammed this way and then blackmailed not to post the video of him captured by the scammer… They had one friend in common, and were saying they were in my same industry.
Skype dates have their own unique set of challenges and it’s important to address them early on.I don't want them to do the same thing to other people.Thanks to the magic of technology, couples in long-distance relationships can still have some quality face time. Let Skype provide visuals that phone calls and text messages can’t. You may trust him/her now, but if the relationship doesn’t last, those images might — and come back to haunt you. The victim is coaxed into exposing himself during a skype conversation with a newly-friended woman who appears to be interested in video sex.Immediately after accepting their friendship, they messaged me. It then progressed to something with sexual undertones, eventually leading to an invitation to skype. One thing led to another with me eventually pulling my [privates] out.
