Why have I never heard of anyone trying this? with videos chat and smart phones and stuff it seems possible. meet someone online on the other side of the world and then go on a date but you don't meet up. If the seem to be a creepy terrible person you can hang up. they can kind of go to a restaurant in town with you and vice versa at the same time. Am I missing something? has anyone done a first date on vid chat of some sort before? am I missing something in this idea?
