Are you looking to improve your social life by using Facebook? Do you want to increase your chances of meeting and dating someone special by using this social media platform? If you don’t want to blow your chances away by making all the wrong moves, here are some Facebook dating tips that you should consider.

8 Facebook Dating Tips to Consider

Strive to maintain a good profile. If you want to improve your chances of meeting or dating someone special through Facebook, you should make it a point to maintain a positive profile. Avoid posting negative updates and/or uploading compromising photos that will put you in a negative light.

Ask for introductions. While it may be okay for you to look through your friends’ friends when you are looking for someone interesting to meet, sending a friend invite directly without asking your friend for a proper introduction may work against your favor. Do it and you’ll risk looking like a creep. Is that what you want? 

Avoid being Facebook friends with someone you have just started dating. Sending or accepting a friend invite after the first or second date can be such a bad idea, especially if either one of you are not yet ready to be in an exclusive relationship. Just imagine what would happen if your date is still dating other people. Would you welcome seeing his or her status updates, especially if he or she happens to with another guy or girl? Well, probably not. Needless to say, being Facebook friends with someone under such situations can bring on a misunderstanding which may, in turn, start a digital fight. Is it really worth it? Think about it.

Ignore your exes’ friend requests. To keep things from being complicated, you should never accept your exes’ friend invites. That part of your life is over so there is no reason for you to maintain an open line of communication with any of them. Move on with your life and leave the past behind.

Resist the urge to tag photos. Should you tag photos of someone you have just started dating? Well, you shouldn’t, especially not without his or her permission. There may be a lot of reasons why your date wouldn’t appreciate having their photos tagged so don’t do it. Believe me, it’s not worth the trouble it stands to create.

Maintain a level of professionalism when posting on your date’s wall. You should realize that you are not the only person your date interacts with on Facebook so it is best to maintain a certain degree of professionalism when posting on his or her wall. This will do you both a lot of good.

Always remember that status change is a mutual decision. While changing your status can be as easy as clicking on a button, doing so without the agreement of the other person can possibly bring disastrous results. What if you and your date have different ideas on where your relationship stands? Wouldn’t it be quite embarrassing to have your status set on ‘in a relationship’ while the person you are dating maintains that he or she is still ‘single’?

Keep your relationship status hidden. What do you think would changing your relationship status over and over again do to your credibility? Would you appreciate being seen as a man or a woman who cannot maintain a relationship or one who merely jumps from one bed to another? I guess not. So, the best thing for you to do is to hide your relationship status especially when you have just started dating or when your relationship has not yet reached a certain level of stability that you can count on.

Used properly, Facebook can improve your chances of meeting and dating someone special so you better follow these Facebook dating tips to make sure you get what you’ve always hoped for.

I hope you find these Facebook dating tips useful,
