Volte tried Facebook Dating so you don’tau ever have to put yourself through it

Mai. Of course I didn’t have high hopes for Facebook Dating. But what Rso did have was per great deal of morbid curiosity, and an insatiable desire for attention.

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

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

Well, Volte needed preciso 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

To do it, you head puro the menu section on the Facebook app, and you should see a 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 esatto 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 per Dating and they won’t share any activity or swiping you get up esatto on it with your friends list.

And there’s in nessun caso app, you’ve just got puro do it all through the normal one for Facebook. But more of that in a 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 puro Facebook Dating, there are three tabs: Profile, Liked You and Matches. On Liked You, you’ll get verso number of your likes and then you can swipe exclusively through them per per Tinder-esque style.

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

I’m not sure if this next one is verso vantaggio or a mediante. Volte 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 per feature called Secret Crush. With this feature, it lets you add up puro nine of your Facebook friends or Instagram followers as secret crushes. They’ll get per notification saying “someone’s added you as a secret crush mediante Dating”. If they also end up adding you as a secret crush on their Facebook Dating, you’ll match.

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

The bad

First of all, the lack of app means no notifications. At all. Rso matched with a few lads, but the discussion never went anywhere because it would take either of us days onesto reply when we remembered preciso check the Dating tab. It’s just not convenient having Dating shunted per this little tab on the main app, and I 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 to do with the people who use it.

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

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

I’ve spent per 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 per 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 onesto swipe and find my next fella, esatto be greeted with not per solo person I’m interested durante. Day after day. It’s tedious, and makes you sit there thinking why the hell have I even bothered sicuro attrezzi this up?

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