then, within a minute, he's asking if I have a web cam. Do you seriously think that someone you just randomly IM is going to want to cam chat with you?


Apparently some guys do that for their entertainment and maybe think that asking 25 gals a day may result in a few mutual camming sessions..

I am not able to camchat, but I do know folks who do. I don't understand why you take umbrage at it, since it's the equivalent of meeting someone face to face in public. They want to know who they are talking to. Especially if the point of the communication is to possibly advance to dating, I know plenty of folks for whom it is a requirement.

There are also people (mostly guys, from what I hear) who are primarily hoping to persuade you to do something visually titillating, and that is WHY they want to get any chat going at all. Those who only have keyboards might have to do only with verbal sex talk, but those with cams can go for more.

Is your problem simply that these fellows ask for visual too quickly? That's up to your sensibilities, but in this modern age, I can't myself see that the ones who DO ask early are ignoring any existing social limits, since none have been established for online conversations.

It's cheaper than porn and so many women are into it, that I'm sure the guys that do this get a yes often enough to keep asking.

Remember kiddies be sure to turn those damn cams OFF>>> hA HAHHHha haHA.


Maybe there should be a remote way to turn them all ON, like NSA and that infamous high school had..

Could save so much long-distance heartache with a reality check.. to see each other first thing in the morning in those holey pink polka-dot panties you have on right now..

I like cam chatting with girls because I like seeing them laugh and smile. It's a helluva lot better than reading text and looking at frozen pictures and it's a lot easier seeing if they like you or not.
