To use the service, you have to have Skype installed on your computer and then download the free Skyecandy software. The program is easy to use, and even tells you (in your own time zone) what time is the most active for you to log on! (For everyone on PST: 8 p.m.) It's a cute idea, and a potentially fun way to make a new friend. Call me skeptical, but I'm not positive it's the best way to meet a long-term boyfriend. Would you try it?
I've never embarked on any online dating adventures, but I have many friends who have — some have found love, while others have had miserable experiences. The whole idea of having to weed through potential suitors not only to determine which ones have legit profiles, but also to decipher which ones could be a potential match seems so daunting. Now if I were searching for love online, a new service for Skype called Skyecandy seems like a quick and painless way to meet people. Skyecandy is a speed-dating service that matches you up with real people via Skype and your webcam. From there you chat with people in five-minute intervals, and when the five minutes is over, you click yes or no to indicate if you're interested. If both parties click yes then you can continue chatting with that person for free over Skype. Sound good to you?
