A lot of people have been asking me whether or not you can use Facebook as a good platform for finding potential dates in your area. I believe that although it isn’t your best option there is no reason why you shouldn’t use Facebook as a platform to locate dates. The main benefit of Facebook is that practically everyone has a Facebook profile and there is many more men and women to search through. The only downfall of using Facebook is that it isn’t set-up for singles specifically and most people who use Facebook aren’t looking for a date.
Don’t get me wrong there are plenty of single people who use Facebook, but most of them don’t generally use Facebook to find dates. One reason is because it isn’t set-up for dating and the other reason is your friends and family can view your profile and many people don’t like mixing family with dating. If you have a Facebook profile I would suggest keeping it updated and looking for other singles in your area.
A lot of people are looking to make new friends so you don’t need to make it a dating situation rather you can just go out as friends with people to see how you click together. I’ve met a few people on Facebook in my area that I’ve gone and met and I still hangout with a few of the women to this day. Facebook is so popular and filled with thousands of people from every city that you’d be wasting a valuable resource for meeting people if you didn’t use Facebook.
There are also some great groups on Facebook for many cities for singles where you can join the group and meet singles from your city. These groups are great because there targeted at singles in your area that are looking for other singles. If you spend some time doing a little research you’d be surprised what you’ll find on Facebook and I’m sure you’ll be pleased. If you don’t already use Facebook for finding singles in your area then I suggest trying it out to see how it works for you, it’s all free so you have nothing to lose.
