Being authentic has been highly valued in any stages of a relationship more so on the onset. However, being real doesn’t mean that you can dress up lousily during your online date. The impression you make online will spell out whether your friendship will deepen or not. Therefore, dress nicely and properly. If you are in doubt, semi-formal is safe enough.
Have Definite Pointers to Talk About
Aside from the visual impression, prepare for some topics that might strike her interests. If it’s your first time Skype-dating with a Filipina woman, practice so you would not sound edgy and too forward. There is no need to tell your whole life story. Stick to the pointers and you will never be sidetracked in your conversation. You can ask about her family and her hobbies to build immediate connection. It would be a good practice to be humble as you do not want to be branded as cocky.
