While there are numerous dating apps out there that claim to be able to provide you with a perfect match, the cost of utilizing them is so high that you may end up using only the free version of their service. Of course, this reduces your odds of discovering the alleged opportunity you were looking for on those online dating apps and dating websites in question.
But what if you could get the exact features that will attract the best match date while still paying absolutely nothing? Wouldn’t that be fantastic?

The First Steps in Using Facebook Dating
In comparison to other dating sites and apps, the Facebook dating app provides you with a more advanced advantage.
Do you know how to do it?
Many dating apps, including Bumble and the rest, allow you to sign up for an account by connecting it to your social media account. This enables them to retrieve members from Facebook and present them to you as potential matches. Facebook Dating, on the other hand, is already a part of Facebook.
It is not available for download as a stand-alone application. The dating feature is a part of Facebook, and it is already available in the Facebook Android and iOS mobile apps, which you must opt into in order to use. It is similar to the Facebook Avatar in that you must choose to use it.
Facebook Dating gives you with features that are comparable to those you are already familiar with from other dating apps, such as Tinder. For example, when you see someone’s profile photo, you can choose whether or not to accept it by tapping the large X or the big heart. With Second Look, you can go back and look at profiles that you previously passed over.
Aside from this, there are a number of other advantages to using the Facebook Dating tool. It is completely free; you will not be required to pay any fees in order to contact or initiate one-on-one talks with your date.
While you are in the Facebook Dating section, you have the option to use other Facebook services as well. Consider the following scenario: you have a significant date with whom you want to hookup live; you and your date can extend your conversation to Facebook messaging or WhatsApp for live video calls – all of this is provided for free. It should be noted that it is a premium package on other online dating sites and dating applications.
How does the Facebook Dating App function?
Creating a Facebook Dating Profile
Some people are concerned about disclosing to their Facebook friends that they are using a dating app. Please take note of this;
(a) YES – Facebook dating is available as an add-on option directly within the Facebook app.
(a) However, your dating area is so well controlled and guarded that no one is aware of your activities. Facebook even had dating privacy settings, which allowed you to control who could see you and who couldn’t. This effectively killed the whole thing. Because of this, you can choose to completely block your Facebook friends from seeing you in the dating section, just in case someone else decides to do the same thing as you do.
Although not all, Facebook dating has its own unique setup, which means you can have a separate profile image and name as well as contact information that is completely separate from your primary Facebook information.
The following are the steps to creating a Facebook dating profile:
First and foremost, make sure you’ve updated the Facebook iOS or Android app so that you’re running the most up-to-date version of the application.
Facebook Dating will appear in a new tab in the main menu of the Facebook mobile app, which will be accessible from the home screen.
- Go to this page to sign up for Facebook Dating and establish a dating profile (separate from your main Facebook profile).
- In this section, you will be able to provide personal information about yourself, such as your height, religion, job title, educational background, and whether or not you have children. Additionally, Facebook may propose photos and information from your Facebook profile, which you can modify or remove while creating your dating profile on the site.
- Then, before you begin drawing prospective dates to your dating page, go to settings and adjust your privacy settings.
- Finding and matching dates on Facebook Dating is a simple process.
- As you proceed through the setup process, Facebook dating will always ask you to specify your gender as well as the gender(s) of the people you are interested in matching with on the service.
You’ll see inclusive gender options such as cis woman, trans woman, cis man, trans man, and non-binary person, and you can choose whether you’re interested in everyone, women, men, trans women, or trans men. You can also select whether you’re interested in trans women or trans men.
Now begins the WONDERFUL world of Facebook Dating. First and foremost, you will only be suggested to others who have also opted into Facebook Dating, and people will be suggested to you based on your preferences, interests, and “other things you do on Facebook.” You will come across friends of friends as well as folks who are not in your buddy group. Facebook Dating will not match you with your Facebook friends until you both add each other to your “Secret Crush” lists, which you may do by visiting the Facebook Dating website.
Getting in touch with your matches
Simply remark directly on their Facebook Dating profile or touch the Like button to let them know you’re interested in talking with them. If you’re not interested, don’t bother.
However, if you have linked your Instagram account to Facebook Dating, you will be able to connect with people you already know on Facebook and Instagram match for a date; this option is referred to as the “Secret Crush List” on Facebook. You can create a Secret Crush list by selecting up to nine of your Facebook friends or Instagram followers from your contacts list.
Please keep in mind that those individuals will receive a notification stating that someone has a crush on them. In the event that your crush adds you to their Secret Crush list as well, you are a match. In contrast, if your crush isn’t on Facebook Dating, doesn’t establish a Secret Crush list, or doesn’t include you on their list, they won’t be aware of your existence.
