For singles, Facebook has always been the go-to dating site. This is made possible through a variety of channels. Simply send a friend request to someone else you find attractive, and if the request is accepted, things will progress from there.
One thing that should be considered is a slight negative, this channel could be tough to read because it could send mixed signals when a request is accepted. A person may accept a request, believing they are simply making new friends, whereas the sender may believe they have hit the jackpot.
To address this, Facebook users took matters into their own hands and created dating groups in which ambiguities and mixed signals were eliminated, given that membership in such a group implies a willingness to date.
Finally, Facebook stepped in and decided to launch an official dating service on the Facebook platform. Facebook Dating is currently available to registered Facebook users who live in the areas where the service is being launched.
That’s unfortunate, as it may not yet be available in your country. One nice feature is that the service is completely free.
Facebook Dating Countries
As previously stated, Facebook Dating is currently only available in a limited number of countries. The following is a list of these countries;
- The Philippines
- The United States
How Facebook Dating Works
As with every other dating site, users must build a dating profile on Facebook Dating. This enables you to maximize the value of the service.
During the profile creation process, you will be asked for personal information such as your age, gender, interests, and location. It’s worth noting that Facebook does not allow users to select their preferred race.
Users are matched with people with whom they are most likely to form a connection based on this information.
The Dating service can be terminated at any time by simply switching it off.
