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

No. Of course Rso 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.

I find it hard to not give verso new dating app vibe a try. You really do just never know how they’re going onesto be. I’ve had them all, preciso varying success. Grindr is cursed but Volte enjoy the attention and, well, the nudes. Tinder is per glitchy mess but the majority of people looking for love are on it, so the talent pool is wide and there’s always someone to scontro with. I met my una volta 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 Volte never heard anything from it?

Well, I needed esatto 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

Preciso do it, you head esatto 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 puro 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 dialogue starters, like Hinge. The gang’s all here.

The feature stresses from the via 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 no app cosa sapere per incontri travestiti, you’ve just got sicuro do it all through the normal one for Facebook. But more of that durante 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 sicuro Facebook Dating, there are three tabs: Profile, Liked You and Matches. On Liked You, you’ll get per number of your likes and then you can swipe exclusively through them sopra per Tinder-esque style.

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

I’m not sure if this next one is per vantaggio or per per. 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 to nine of your Facebook friends or Instagram followers as secret crushes. They’ll get per notification saying “someone’s added you as verso secret crush con Dating”. If they also end up adding you as verso secret crush on their Facebook Dating, you’ll gara.

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 giammai notifications. At all. I matched with verso few lads, but the conciliabule never went anywhere because it would take either of us days sicuro reply when we remembered esatto check the Dating tab. It’s just not convenient having Dating shunted con this little tab on the main app, and I think it’d be a big improvement if it had its own app like Facebook Messenger does.

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

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

There’s per reason none of your mates talk about that fit lad they’re obsessed with that they’ve spent all night talking sicuro 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 sopra. 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 I had around 30 likes. I’d clear through them, excited esatto swipe and find my next fella, puro be greeted with not a solo person I’m interested per. Day after day. It’s tedious, and makes you sit there thinking why the hell have I even bothered puro set this up?

Bastoncino preciso Tinder. Bastoncino sicuro Hinge. They’ve already got everything that’s being offered here. Make no 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 party with.
