The internet is quickly becoming one of the most popular ways to meet potential partners and fall in love. With practically everyone owning a webcam, it’s easy to speak to new people face to face and form a real bond with them. However, using a webcam to find love makes it more difficult to hide any socially frowned upon habits you may have such as smoking. When chatting with our webcam online, the conversations we have can last a few hours and many smokers will feel the need to light up during this period and have a cigarette on cam. Doing this can potentially ruin your chances of finding online love for the following reasons:
Non-Smokers Generally Won’t Date Smokers
There have been many online polls and studies which ask non-smokers if they would consider dating a smoker and the overwhelming majority has said that they wouldn’t. This essentially means that you could be having a great conversation with someone new, things could be going really well, but when you spark up they become turned off. The best thing to do is mention you’re a smoker straight away or refrain from smoking on webcam and wait until the conversation has finished before lighting up.
It’s Lazy and Inconsiderate
When you’re chatting on webcam, remember the webcam is displaying a fixed picture and you can easily move off-screen or go outside to have a cigarette. Even if the person you’re chatting to is anti-smoking, they will be much more likely to stay and chat if they aren’t watching you smoke away. Telling them you’ll be back in a couple of minutes and then popping off-camera for a quick smoke is much better than simply lighting up on cam and continuing the conversation. If they can’t see you in the act, it removes the image from their mind and increases your chances of finding love.
It Can Obscure the Webcam’s Picture
When you’re having a conversation with someone on webcam, the majority of the time you will be indoors. So, if you decide to smoke on camera the smoke you’re exhaling will have nowhere to go and it’s likely it will linger around the room that you’re in. This lingering smoke will make the broadcast of your webcam fuzzy and unclear which is bound to frustrate the person you’re chatting to. Poor quality webcam displays are one of the main reasons people struggle to find love online and creating a cloud of smoke around your webcam will lessen your chance of finding love online.
Smoking Isn’t Cool Anymore
There was time when smoking was super cool and lighting up a cigarette was considered sexy. However, these days advances in medical science has shown us the damage that smoking can do and smoking has gone from being cool to being frowned upon. Thinking that lighting a cigarette and smoking on webcam is really sexy and attractive is incorrect and is actually more than likely going to have the opposite effect.
