Being in a LDR requires us to be creative in finding ways to “keep the flame alive”. Hahaha. R hates it when I say that, but I feel like every once in a while we need to do something out of the ordinary, don’t you agree?
Recently I found a video chat service called Rabbit (how cute is the name!), which allows you to watch Netflix, Youtube, and browse the web together with your friends regardless of their location. In my own words it’s a video chat + screen sharing service.. which I think is really cool, especially for us long distance couples.
At first we found it quite hard to have an agreed schedule to do this.. because we are so used to mobile communication (facetime + imessage) and rarely use video chat with our laptop/desktop. So finally two weeks ago we managed find a time to sit down and tried Rabbit. It was Saturday afternoon in my place and Friday night at his.. and we both have cleared our schedule so it was perfect.
It has been a while since I saw R in person also a while since I saw him online with a big screen, so to be honest I felt nervous … hahaha like going-on-a-first-date-nervous. It was exciting! *blush*
We quickly browsed Netflix and agreed on a choice of movie.. like you can see in the picture below. We thought it was good to do something romantic every once in a while, so we chose a sappy romantic comedy based on Nicholas Sparks’ novel 🙂 …. okay okay I have to admit I gave a lot of influence to the decision 😉
Anyway.. Rabbit was awesome! Since we both were new users, we had to register first. The process was easy and did not take long. Even though I was aware that they are still in development process, I did not find any glitch and issues.. all worked just fine. We are yet to try their mobile app though.. but since we are using it for our movie date, I think the desktop version will be enough for us. If you are in LDR, Rabbit should be perfect for you too! Try it and let me know what you think 😉
It’s been two weeks since that date and we are now back to our communication routine… I can’t wait til our next movie date! (ah, what am I saying? just skip the online date.. fast forward to our offline date please!).
When was the last time you had a date with your significant other? 🙂
