Date on Lavalife with Skype
We’ve always thought that Skype and dating would go together well, and we know many [stories](http://www.skype.com/) of people that have met by using “Skype Me”. Our friends at [Lavalife](http://blogs.skype.com/directory/lavalife_world_chat/view/), with our blessing, have been cooking up a neat way for Skype users to meet each other. It’s called Lavalife World Chat, and it’s available now as a beta.
The idea is this — you call in and record a short profile about yourself. You then listen to other people’s profiles and send them voice messages. Three times per day, they open the Lavalife World Chat room which is a virtual voice lounge where you can go and send instant voice messages to other people that are online. You can even speak to someone directly. And you can do all of this anonymously, without revealing your Skype Name to anyone, so that your safety and security are protected.
As all you Skype users know, voice is a rich way to communicate with each other, much richer than, say, e-mail or Instant Messaging/chat. Someone’s voice says a huge amount about who they are. You can get great clues about someone just by listening to them. This is especially useful if you are looking to meet other single Skypers. And on Skype and Lavalife, the voice is even clearer than on regular phone calls (even though it looks a bit like a phone number, you actually can’t call it from the regular phone network, as the Voice Services — and Lavalife is one of our many Voice Services — are only available on Skype).
So, dial up [+9907LAVALIFE](skype:+9907LAVALIFE?call) on Skype and give it a try. The service is free while it’s in beta. And it’s available to callers 18 years of age or older.
