The dating feature on Facebook combines the best features of dating apps like Bumble and Tinder with the world's most popular social media platform. Here's how to turn it on so you can start making matches. This article only applies to the Facebook mobile app for iOS and Android.


1. How to Activate Facebook Dating

To get started with Facebook Dating, follow these steps:


• Open the Facebook app and then tap the Menu (three lines) button in the lower-right corner.
• Select Dating.
• Select Get Started. Set up your dating profile by following the prompts.
• Your dating profile will be generated using information from your Facebook account after you share your location and select a photo.


TIP: Add more information, photos, and even Instagram posts to your Facebook Dating profile. When you're finished, tap Done.


2. What Is Facebook Dating?

Through the global social network, Facebook Dating aims to assist people in making romantic connections. You don't need to create a separate dating profile; Facebook will recommend potential matches based on shared interests based on the information on your current profile. Your profile will also be recommended to other Facebook Dating users.


Facebook's dating feature, like Bumble and Tinder, does not allow you to message other users until you both express interest in each other. The app will not recommend any of your current Facebook friends. Similarly, your dating profile will be hidden from your friends who use the feature. Friends, on the other hand, can add each other to their list of secret crushes, so you could match with a friend if they have a crush on you.


Important: To access Facebook Dating, users must be 18 years old or older (according to their profile).


3. How Does Facebook Dating Work?

You must first create a Facebook account before you can begin using Facebook Dating. Because the dating feature uses information from your regular profile, you should fill it out as completely as possible. There is no separate Facebook Dating app or site; the feature is built into the Facebook mobile app.


Pictures and other content shared through Facebook Dating are not visible on your regular Facebook profile. Conversations on Facebook Dating are also kept separate from conversations on Facebook Messenger. You can still see someone's dating profile if you become Facebook friends with them after matching with them on Facebook Dating.

Note: The dating feature is not available on Facebook's website, but there is a page for frequently asked questions about Facebook Dating.


4. How to Use Facebook Dating?

Profiles will be recommended by Facebook Dating one at a time. You can view your recommendations at any time by going to the Dating section of the Facebook app.

• To let a user know you like them, tap the heart on their profile, or the X to pass. You can strike up a conversation if they like you back.
• If someone else likes your profile, you'll be notified. Tap the heart icon on their profile to like them back and send them a direct message.
• By tapping Matches at the top of the app, you can view your matches and conversations.
• Scroll down to the bottom of your profile and tap Answer a Question to respond to random questions that will help Facebook improve your match suggestions.
• At the bottom of your profile page, you can also add photos and share Instagram posts.


5. How to Adjust the Facebook Dating Settings?

A few settings changes will affect how the Facebook Dating app works for you.

• To access the settings, tap the gear icon on the screen where Facebook suggests profiles.
• Set your preferred criteria for potential matches under the Ideal Match tab.
• You can customise what appears on your profile by going to the General tab. Tap More (three dots) next to Instagram to connect your account.


6. Facebook Dating Secret Crushes

The secret crush feature allows you to match with your Facebook friends and Instagram followers. Scroll to the bottom of the screen, where Facebook suggests profiles, and click on Secret Crush.


Then you can choose friends from Facebook and Instagram. If they have Facebook Dating set up, they will receive a notification that someone has a crush on them, but they will not know who. You will be matched if they also add you to their secret crushes.

7. How to Delete a Facebook Dating Profile?

You can delete your Facebook Dating profile without deleting your regular Facebook profile, but doing so will remove you from Facebook Dating.

• To access the settings, tap the gear icon on the screen where Facebook suggests profiles.
• Select the General option.
• Select Delete Profile.
• Select a reason for leaving Facebook Dating, or tap Skip. To complete the deletion of your Facebook Dating profile, tap Next.


Note: You must wait seven days after deleting a Facebook Dating profile before creating a new one.


8. Facebook Dating Safety

Always tell a friend where you're going before meeting someone you met online in person. It's also a good idea to communicate with them via text or Facebook messenger so they know you're okay. If you want to prevent a user from contacting you or viewing your profile, you can do so in the Facebook Dating settings by going to the General tab.
