Can I deny a "First Date"?
Yes!  You simply tell the other person that you are not intested in going on a virtual date.

Is "Video Date" available on mobile?
It’s available on mobile, ipad and desktop.

How long is the link good for?
The link is good until both users are readily available for the date. If your date does not show up, no worries it won't count towards your credit usage. You can view your chat history here.

What are the technical requirements?
The first time you begin or accept a Video Date, your device may ask for your permission to grant access to your microphone and camera. This is necessary in order to carry out a Video Date. To proceed, just click the “Allow” button.

Is he or she who they say they are?  

If you are suspicious of someone, you can use the video call to see if the person in the photo is really the person in the photo. Unlike Facetime, we will not reveal your phone number. If they are unwilling to accept your request, you may want to move on!

Virtual Dating Tips

Follow these tips for a successful date.

Set up Virtual Dates

By a click of a button, you will be able to start a fun virtual date and stay on Western Match at the same time. 

Dress Up and Clean Up

Just because you're not meeting
someone in person doesn't mean you shouldn't look presentable. Look as though you are meeting in person. 

Set the stage

Choose a space that’s clean, well-decorated and most importantly, well-lit. Loosen up! Make your favorite drink so it feels like a real date. 

Prepare Yourself

Have some questions ready and don't feel like you have to be on the virtual date all night. 15 minutes is a good start. If it goes well schedule a real traditional date.
