Facebook has always been the default dating grounds for singles. This is enabled through different channels. One could simply send out a friends request to some other person they find attractive, and if the request is accepted, things develop from there.
Agreed, this channel could be tough and might send mixed signals when a request gets accepted. A person might accept a request, thinking they’re just going to make new friends, whereas, the sender would go thinking they just hit a jack pot.
To tackle this, Facebook users took things into their own hands and created dating groups where ambiguities and mixed signals were eliminated, given that to be a member of such group, you would be down for dating, obviously.
Facebook stepped in eventually and introduced a proper, official dating service on the Facebook platform. Facebook Dating is available to registered Facebook users living in locations the service is currently launched.
That’s a bummer, seeing as it might not be available in your country yet. One sweet thing though, the service is totally free.
