Chatting in Skype, viber and dating sites

Postby mentor » Fri Jun 17, 2016 8:18 am

I have seen the 'story' for many times, so it's time to ask here:
does it make any difference, to chat in skype, than inside a dating site?

Ok, for viber, I can understand it, as you told me that there is free use in ph, for the majority of mobile users. So, for free use, you can't go wrong.

But, they even press me to talk in skype, they prefer it over dating site, for talking.

Why this preference?
Is this a matter of data and expensive prices?
Text messages in skype, use less data traffic and so the charge is less, than login and chat inside a dating site?
This is the only explanation I can think, but I am not sure.

What do you think?

Webcam option available on Skype? Maybe they want to see who they're talking too and that should be your prerogative too.

There will be other reasons though.

No, no, no girl asked me for videocall yet.
They say they prefer it for data load issues.

Depending on the phone plan, Skype may be free.

It would be useful to know if there is skype use for free in some data plans in mobile providers in Phil.

This strikes me as unusual. Most girls want to video with guys, whether via Skype, old standbys like Yahoo Messenger, etc. And I had no interest in a relationship with someone I could not see - at least sometimes.
