    Has anyone on here used face time after meeting someone online?

    Met this lady on Craigslist and when I suggested we exchange numbers so we can set up a meeting she preferred face time. I have no interest in face time because I only have one computer. So that means I have to push everything to the side to focus on her. With the phone I can still do 3 things at once. Has anyone on here used face time before meeting?

    If she won't meet for a quick cup of coffee or glass of wine, then move along.

    The meeting date is set I just wanted to chit chat so not I'm not too sure. She says she don't have a dainty phone voice? Lol

    If she doesn't have a dainty phone voice then won't she not have a dainty phone voice on face time? I would be careful she could be cat fishing you. See if she follows through with the meeting. Not talking on the phone is odd.

    I would find it awkward to FaceTime with someone before meeting them in person.

    You would multitask during a first phone call?

    Would you multitask on a phone interview? I think not. I highly doubt she's cat fishing you if SHE wants a video chat. She may want a video chat because she's worried YOU are a catfish.

    She claims it would verify it's really me

    When I talk on the phone I still can look at my computer and tv while talking. I would never video chat since I would be able to do only that.

    Why not?

    Why wouldn't you want to focus solely on the conversation?

    Seems like kind of a strange reason to not want to video chat.
