Skype: The Death of Long Distance Dating/Relationship


Almost 20 years ago, in a far far away land, called the UK, the webcam was born. Thank God/Man! Where would we be today without the webcam? Think of all the events we would miss, all the birthdays of family members in distant parts of the world, friends who move out of state, the list is endless. Webcams have allowed us to save money on traveling, especially in this economy. Let us not forget webcams allowed us to meet new people, video-chat, and for some, the ability to get naked, sex-chat (the new sexting), and even date!

Now I know what some of you are thinking, webcams are for getting naked and having cyber-sex! Cyber-sex, now there is a term that has met it's death. I am not going to deny it, I am guilty of it. I have on more than one occasion undressed for someone to see, and fuck even came for them. That was a mess...literally! But aside from the getting naked, webcams have definitely allowed us a new method to meeting someone and getting to know them, especially with the advent of new cam-dating sites, such as GaySharkTank.com.

A couple of a weeks ago I met someone who was down visiting some friends. He is originally from Nor-Cal (for all you non-California people, that's Northern California), plays the piano, does funny little vids, and laughs like a monster. He too is a love monster! From the get go I told myself I can not like this guy, I will not like this guy, he lives far away, and...I don't believe in long distance dating/getting-to-know-each-other/relationships. Fuck, I am needy, I want them to be there as much as possible, I need to feel the touch of a real human being, other than myself.

There we were, he was down for three more days and we spent them together. It was fun, exciting, new, and I still was telling myself to not like him. The last night we chatted about hanging out when ever he comes out again...actually there was more in depth conversation, but that's for later. He seemed bummed, his face became long, he became quiet. Shit, I fucked it up! He left thinking I was giving him the re-warmed already served platter of the blow-off line.

I decided I would make an effort...so I downloaded Skype. Well he made me. So I did. Here we are a week later Skype-ing it up! It's our mini dates until we see each other in person again. It's fun, it's crazy, he gets to see me at the oddest times. Such as after working out and getting my gay boy fitness on. Or after a long day of putzing around. It's as if we never skipped a beat from the day we met.

Sounding like the Skype convert now, I can see why long distance dating/relationships can be easy. As long as some effort is put into it from both parties. Definitely it is a commitment. Yet I still hold to the fact that I need the personal touch of that person...frankly I would appreciate it every day. For now Skype will do. Plus it allows us to get to know each other, be silly on cam. He feeds me Reeses Peanut Butter Cups (my favorite...feel free to send me some if you like), and we growl at each other, because we are love monsters. When we feel the need to restart the conversation or change ideas we tchk! each other. Sure we can call each other, but seeing the face of the person makes all the difference! Plus it is hilarious when Skype freezes and the face is left distorted...screen shots for bribing later!

Skype makes it feel not so long distance, it takes those boundaries away. No county lines, there isn't a Nor-Cal/So-Cal, just two people making an effort to get to know each other. So lets take it from there!

Brrrrrt! Brrrrt! That's my Skype going...so I must get!

  1. Your so called long distance relationship wont last. they never do. ask yourself why would this guy need to find someone so far away to connect with! who contacts people so far away? its weird! he must have something to hide. especially when you make childish videos like that. god move on, im sure there are plenty of losers near you that you can meet face to face. jesus how dumb

  6. You must have missed the part about how we met in person.

    Also, commenting on how white I am, makes you look like an ignorant racist fool. And omg, I have less hair than you?? OMG, what. a. fucking. surprise. LMAO

    You sound single, Frankie? Is that why you're so angry? =( awwww

  7. So you met in person big fucking deal. Yeah you do have alot less hair on that dome than me. And im white you dumb fuck so yeah go ahead and call me names I dont give a shit. keep making those retarded videos and skype your heart out. How long did it take for you to pull your dick out on cam? Your a fag and thats what fags do, right? When your pathetic far away romance falls apart be sure to post it on here so I can rub it in your face that your wrong. Well maybe I will be wrong, im sure your next video about your love of the smurfs will seal the deal

  8. Why are you lashing out at these two people frankie? Why the fuck do you care if they become boyfriends over the internet or show each other their dicks on their webcams? Its not your fucking place to judge. And jesus christ don't rip a person just because they happen to make playful videos and post them on youtube! Just don't watch them. Go watch c-span bitch. I happen to think long distance relationships don't generally work skype or not, but that doesn't mean that has to be the case here. And to attack someone based on their appearance like you have is just fucking mean and shows what a small person you are. Get a fucking life and leave Danni alone. He is one of the most special people I've ever met and if you fuck with him, you get to deal with me and I'm going to bet I'm a lot fucking crazier than you dickface. The same goes for his friend. Back the fuck off!

  9. Frankie -

    You're obviously very bitter about something. Not sure what, but I know one of these men referenced in this blog, and think your comments make you sound single as well. Perhaps if you changed the attitude you wouldn't need to worry about whether or not a long-distance relationship worked out for someone else or not. Because you'd be too happy in your own relationship. Although, like I said, you'd better drop the attitude first. I'm single, and based on your comments, I'd never want to date you. So you already turned off this stranger.

  11. FUCK YOU ALL!

    haha, just kidding. Listen you angry fag loving (why else would you be reading this blog?? HELLO!) dumb shit that actually took the time to post such a hateful post (FRANKIE who else?) why don't you just take what you can out of the entire post and move on with your life. AND WHO cares how much hair ANYONE has! seriously, for the love of ASSHOLES, you think your luscious mane with forever remain in tact? doubt it.

    The point it, cause I do have one, who cares how people meet, who cares what they have to do to make it work, and who cares if they whip out a little action on cam - spice it up! why not?

    Maybe you and your significant other (and no I don't mean the blow up doll next to you) should whip out some cam action and spice shit up.

    That'll keep ya busy.
