I tried Facebook Dating so you don’t ever have preciso put yourself through it

In nessun caso. Of course Volte didn’t have high hopes for Facebook Dating. But what Rso did have was a great deal of morbid curiosity, and an insatiable desire for attention.

Volte find it hard to not give verso new dating app vibe per try. You really do just never know how they’re going puro be. I’ve had them all, puro varying success. Grindr is cursed but Volte enjoy the attention and, well, the nudes. Tinder is verso glitchy mess but the majority of people looking for love are on it, so the talent pool is wide and there’s always someone preciso scontro with. Volte met my ex on Hinge, and think it’s actually got incontri donnone nere the perfected motto for a good dating app.

But what about Facebook Dating? Is it any good? It’s been out in Europe since , so why’ve Volte never heard anything from it?

Well, I needed puro find out for my own peace of mind. I’ve been playing about on it Facebook Dating for just over a week now, and this is my final verdict on if it’s worth bothering.

Setting up my profile

Esatto do it, you head onesto the menu section on the Facebook app, and you should see verso tab for Dating just under Memories on the right hand side. Once you click on that, you’ll be walked through the steps on how preciso get going. It’s the usual stuff that you’d find on Tinder or Hinge; education, smoker/non smoker, bios. It lets you do verso mix of pictures and conversation starters, like Hinge. The gang’s all here.

The feature stresses from the start that it won’t suggest current Facebook friends mediante Dating and they won’t share any activity or swiping you get up onesto on it with your friends list.

And there’s in nessun caso app, you’ve just got to do it all through the normal one for Facebook. But more of that sopra verso bit.

Is there any good stuff about Facebook Dating?

The major one is that unlike Tinder, you can see who’s liked you. When you go on sicuro Facebook Dating, there are three tabs: Profile, Liked You and Matches. On Liked You, you’ll get a number of your likes and then you can swipe exclusively through them mediante verso Tinder-esque style.

It’s definitely per great thing seeing all the people that want puro gara with you just readily available, considering on Tinder preciso get that you’re looking a paying ?15 per month for the privilege.

I’m not sure if this next one is a guadagno or per mediante. Rso guess it would depend on where you fall on the matter. But it’s one of Facebook Dating’s most unique features, so I’ve gotta mention it.

FB Dating has verso feature called Secret Crush. With this feature, it lets you add up preciso nine of your Facebook friends or Instagram followers as secret crushes. They’ll get a notification saying “someone’s added you as verso secret crush per Dating”. If they also end up adding you as verso secret crush on their Facebook Dating, you’ll scontro.

So if you can face up esatto your crush knowing you use Facebook Dating, this is the feature for you!

The bad

First of all, the lack of app means in nessun caso notifications. At all. Volte matched with verso few lads, but the dialogue never went anywhere because it would take either of us days to reply when we remembered sicuro check the Dating tab. It’s just not convenient having Dating shunted durante this little tab on the main app, and Rso think it’d be per big improvement if it had its own app like Facebook Messenger does.

But the biggest bad with Facebook Dating actually has very little puro do with the service itself. It’s sicuro do with the people who use it.

Facebook isn’t the young person hotspot it once was when we were teenagers. Rso can’t remember the last time I put a Facebook ceto up for any other purpose than preciso broadly inform family members and older acquaintances Volte know that perhaps don’t use Instagram or Twitter of anything important durante my life. New jobs, moving cities. That kind of thing. Facebook isn’t really the scrolling haven of aimable media it was sopra its hey day. Not for people our age, anyway.

There’s verso reason none of your mates talk about that fit lad they’re obsessed with that they’ve spent all night talking to on Facebook Dating. It just doesn’t happen.

I’ve spent a good while over the last week swiping on Facebook Dating, and it’s boring. The people who use it blend into one. Everyone looks like they’ve never left the town they were born mediante. Every bio looks like it was written by a bot. It’s the kind of thing you sit and scroll on and end up sending your mental health into an existential crisis.

On several occasions, I’d go on Dating and see Volte had around 30 likes. I’d clear through them, excited esatto swipe and find my next fella, onesto be greeted with not a single person I’m interested in. Day after day. It’s tedious, and makes you sit there thinking why the hell have Rso even bothered onesto set this up?

Bastoncino puro Tinder. Bastoncino puro Hinge. They’ve already got everything that’s being offered here. Make niente affatto mistake, all dating apps are quite cursed. But at least on the tried and tested classics you might find someone actually worth going for a party with.
