We get lots of stories from customers who use their Logitech webcams to keep in touch with far-flung loved ones who live far away. I thought it would be fitting to share a few on this day. Happy Valentine’s Day!
“I used my webcam and MSN Instant Messenger to court my wife, who lives in China. We have since been married and we are waiting for her visa to be approved. We use the webcam to talk at least twice a day, which helps relieve the loneliness of our forced separation.”
“I met my sweetheart through a Yahoo group. We have been internet dating for nearly 4 years. He asked me to marry him over the net with the webcam. He held up the ring and asked me what I thought of it. I said I thought it was pretty and he said good will you marry me.”
“I purchased my Logitech webcam to video chat with my girlfriend who lives in the United Kingdom. The first time I saw her, I knew that she was the one that I wanted to marry. When she arrived for a visit a few years ago, I proposed to her and she said yes. We have been video chatting for the past 2 years now, and there will be a marriage in the future.”
“I use a webcam to keep in touch with my boyfriend. We met a year ago and the only way we can see each other is through the webcam. It makes the distance between us a little easier. He lives in England and I’m here in the United States. We are making plans to see each other soon. If it wasn’t for the webcam it would be so hard to get through.”
“I bought a webcam so that I could see my boyfriend who’s 1500 miles away from me. He also bought one, and our webcams help us keep our relationship going. My boyfriend loves it when I sing, so I used my webcam to record myself singing a special song. I e-mailed the recording to him, and he tells me that listening to it makes him feel better if he’s down or even happier when he’s fine. If it weren’t for my webcam, I don’t know where we would be.”
If you have a similar story, we’d love to hear it!
