Skyecandy is Online Dating With Skype

Skyecandy: The Next Generation of Online Dating

Meet Skyecandy, a brand-new way to online date using Skype. Skyecandy matches you to potential dates based on your answers to a few basic questions. Then, it connects you via Skype to real people for five-minute speed "dates." After each date, you grade your experience as a yes or no, and can add a "friendly rating," describing your date, add notes to each profile describing things you liked about the conversation, or alternatively, things that didn't go so well. Your "yes" dates are saved for future reference and possible reconnection if he said yes, too. Like Love Connection for 2010!

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?
