How to like someone on Facebook dating?

If you have used Tinder in the past then Facebook dating is pretty similar.

Here is how to like someone on Facebook dating:

To send a like or start a conversation with someone in Dating:
  • Go to your Facebook app and tap Menu, then Dating.
  • Tap like to send a like, or tap any photo of the person you’re interested in.
  • If you tapped a photo, write a message and tap send.

What happens when you like someone on Facebook dating?

Nothing will happen unless this person likes you back. When that person likes you back, then you will have the opportunity to talk to each other. Also, you have the option to send that person a message and if she replies then you can continue the conversation.

If you get ignored on Facebook dating then you should never take it personally since it is only a dating app. You should proceed to the next option right away as chances are you would forget the past people whom you liked and sent a message to.

What matters is the people you matched with because you can take it to the next level with them by talking to them and seeing if you have a connection.

Can’t like someone on Facebook dating

One reason you can’t like someone on Facebook dating is when there is a connection problem. Better check your Internet connection settings because the WiFi in the place you are currently at maybe having a problem. Most of the time, it fixes itself so you should be able to swipe again in no time.

If you are already in the momentum when it comes to liking Facebook dating profiles and suddenly something goes wrong with the connection then you can switch to the 4G of your phone then resume swiping.

After all, nobody would want to get prevented from doing something they are currently enjoying. Despite previous countless reports, it is impossible for you to select a user then prevent that person from liking you when there is an opportunity to do so.

Another reason you can’t like Facebook dating is when you have reached the maximum allowable likes daily. Believe it or not, you can only like 100 profiles per day. If you reached the maximum then Facebook dating will inform you and all you need to do is to wait for the next day to arrive then you can start liking or messaging people again.

Other information related to liking and matching on Facebook dating

When you are matched with someone on Facebook dating, it would be wise to not keep that match waiting. After all, the match would expire in a few days so better hit that button and send a message. A ‘Hi’ or ‘Hello’ greeting would be old but it is one way to break the ice.

If you want to be different from other people who start conversations on Facebook Dating then you can start talking about the profile of the person you matched with. This will certainly make the conversation interesting and you can even complement the way the person looks as we all know everyone appreciates a compliment no matter how small or big it is.

You will eventually get Facebook match suggestions and these are based on the preferences that you selected while you were creating a dating profile. It is possible you will get a suggestion from someone you share the same Facebook group with or someone you attended the same Facebook event in the past. Of course, it is possible you did click ‘Attend’ to that Facebook event even if you were not planning on showing up to it.
