Anniversary Celebration via Skype

In light of Valentine’s Day this past February, you may remember us suggesting the various ways long distance couples could use Skype to spend the special holiday together, no matter how many miles kept them apart. While many couples around the globe may have had virtual Valentine’s Day dates via video call, using Skype with loved ones isn’t only limited to holidays. That’s why when we saw the uplifting story of a couple celebrating their first anniversary together over Skype, we wanted to share it with you.

The 1,000 miles between Karly Sias and her boyfriend Andrew Roeser have caused them to turn to technology to keep up-to-date on each other’s lives. With Sias interning at Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota and Roeser in his senior year at Central Michigan University, scheduling time to connect could’ve been difficult. To help combat their busy schedules and the states between them, the couple decided to schedule weekly Skype dates each Sunday to catch up with each other face-to-face. Just weeks ago, they celebrated their 1-year anniversary with help from their ‘technology lifeline.’

We love hearing how Skype has enabled people connect to their significant others no matter where they are. Have you used Skype to keep in touch with your significant other? Do you have any special tips for virtual dates via Skype? Leave a comment and share with us.

    I can beat that! My other half is about 10,000 miles away in Australia and we had an online relationship for about 3yrs. We are now married though and will be spending our first wedding anniversary through Skype as I am over in the States helping out my parents during their time of need. Thank you Skype for keeping me connected with my loved one!

    My Boyfriend (Canada) and me (Australia) Skype everyday, we get our parents to talk through Skype as well. Numerous times we’ve fallen asleep on each other, or when we send each other things we open them on Skype. It’s ALMOST like he’s here, or I’m there. We’ve been together for a year, and been through tears and laughter on Skype. Thank you for keeping us connected! (:
