Okay so Dh and I have been split since August, in the process of divorce. Anyways I'm on a couple dating websites and every once in a while I meet someone interesting and they ask to Skype. ( I'm not willing to meet someone in person without verifying who they are/look like).
The issue is....I spend the majority of my time staring at my own face in the little box making sure I'm looking decent lol. Am I alone in this?? Skype drives me crazy, how can I focus on the other person when I can clearly see myself !

For me it's a love/ Hate relationship. I love that it's available and easy. It has benefits but I feel awkward and like I said I pretty much just stare at myself.

So glad I'm not alone! I'm constantly scrutinizing my facial expressions and seeing if my hair looks messy lol

I've noticed Skype makes me look pretty damn fabulous though. It must be my laptop's 2mp camera.

I've noticed the same lol, I still feel like Skype isn't a fair scope of how I actually look in real life! I try to occasionally throw that into the conversation, but heeey I look good on cam so I'll take the compliment regardless
