A popular means of finding a dating partner has become the Internet but there are disadvantages to this. The most common underlying problem with dating sites is pictures. Individuals that submit pictures to their profiles get more attention than those that do not. Unfortunately, people question the legitimacy of pictures. People can post photos when they were 3-10 years younger, 10-30 pounds slimmer. They also only provide shots of themselves that make themselves look good or have been professionally altered.
In comes the term streamate, also known as streammate, which stands for “streaming mate”. This gives you a means to meet others via webcams.
There are currently no websites out there where men and women from the United States can join but the technology for doing so is fast approaching.
Webcams have currently been very successful at bringing together Eastern European and Asian women together with men from the United States, Canada, and Western Europe. Mail order bride services started using webcams to show their male customers that they were getting quality females that could speak English in real time. The days of getting a woman that was either not pretty nor spoke any English is over.
By 2008, it is expected that this technology will become very mainstream and part of the arsenal of all or most online dating websites. So get your webcams ready.
