5 Easy Ways to Break the Ice on Your Next Video Chat Date

Are you getting ready for your next video chat date? If you’re feeling a little bit nervous, don’t worry – you’re not alone! A lot of people feel anxious about video chat dates, especially if they don’t know the other person very well. But don’t worry – there are plenty of ways to break the ice and make sure that your date goes smoothly. In this blog post, we will discuss 5 easy ways to start conversations on video chat dates.

Be prepared - have your date's name and some fun facts ready to go.

This will help you remember their name and give you something to talk about if you get tongue-tied.

Lead with a compliment 

Everyone loves to hear a compliment, so start your date off on the right foot by giving your date one. It could be something as simple as “I love your outfit!” or “You have such a great smile!”.

Ask questions 

Video chat dates are the perfect opportunity to get to know someone better. Prepare some questions in advance, but make sure they’re open-ended so that your date can really elaborate on their answers.

Be an active listener 

This is important for all types of conversations, but it’s especially important on video chat dates. Make sure to maintain eye contact, nod your head, and ask follow-up questions when appropriate.

End with a plan

Video chat dates can be unpredictable, so it’s always a good idea to have an ending plan in mind. Whether you want to schedule another video chat date or just exchange phone numbers, make sure you have a plan so that you can end the date on a positive note.
