Have you seen the mobile Dating app on Facebook? The reason I preface it by saying “mobile” is because on 26 September in the evening I got an offer to “Find Love Through What You Like” on my Facebook app. You cannot however access the app from you laptop or computer. Curious and bored I said – Yes – and can now share what it is all about.
- None of your Facebook friends are going to know you are on the Dating app unless you decide to write a post about it and share it on Facebook like I will be doing, lol. But there’s no awkwardness of having your friends show up in your feed or seeing that you’re wiling your evenings away scrolling through a dating site. (Waves to my friends who are silently or not so silently clucking their tongue. I wouldn’t have to be on here if you guys set me up with your awesome single straight guy friends! 🙂)
- They offer you matches from different events you have attended. Mutual interests might come in handy when finding a partner or date or friend. Given my love for theatre and Disney there’s a good chance one of my matches will also have that interest (or so they say).
- Very easy to set up! Took me 10 minutes from the moment I started signing up to when I sent my first like.
- Despite clarifying that I was searching for Christians I would say 50-70% of the matches I was offered to Like/Dislike happened to be Atheist or didn’t mention a religious preference. Hmmm.
- There is no way to keep browsing the matches on the app without deciding to like or dislike the first guy. There is however a place you can go to look at your second chances allowing you to like someone you might have previously disliked.
- You can only say you are dating in the actual area your phone is located. So for example you live in Santa Barbara and are working out of Hermosa Beach that afternoon, your matches will likely be in that general vicinity.
So have you tried the dating app yet? What are your thoughts? What do you look for when checking out a dating app?
