FaceTime dates: fun romantic twist or just odd?

Dating is inherently tricky. What really constitutes a date? Who pays? How many dates do you go on before you’re an “item”? What was in that date that killed that monkey? In light of recent social distancing events, dating is getting one more complicated twist: FaceTime. In order to maintain separation but still look for love, people have been having FaceTime dates in which both parties chat over the app. Some find this an adorable workaround, others just plain annoying. How about you?

Is there a downside to FaceTime dates? Really? Because we’re only aware of an onslaught of upsides. For one thing, you don’t have to rush to get ready and spend hours mulling over what to wear; you don’t even really have to wear pants if you don’t want to! For another, you’re in the safety of your own home, so if anything goes amiss, it’s all a matter of hanging up on the offending party. You could even have multiple dates per hour, no problem! Did we also mention no pants?

FaceTime dates are a great way not only to get to know someone in their natural habitat, but to minimize time wasted by physically hanging with someone that ends up not being worth it. Honestly, even when all this is over, we may stick to this type of dating.

The actual definition of what a date is may be up in the air, but there’s one thing we do know about dates—they can’t happen over FaceTime. Sure, maybe when you’re in a relationship you can have a cute little video chat, but as a first date? No way, man, no way. Wining and dining and treating someone to something nice is the way to go. FaceTime dates sound more like a lazy approach to us.

Call us old-fashioned, but the best way to gauge a person is actually meeting them in person. Getting actual human-to-human interaction is hard enough these days, even prior to this pandemic. Let’s keep FaceTime to your weekly check-ins with your parents, please.
