Friend friend dating

Users who opt into the friend feature by clicking on a link in their News Feed will be able to narrow down suggestions for friends by selecting certain interests.

For example, you can let the social network know you're not interested in making friends from work by switching that option off.

Facebook plans to roll out its dating service in the US by the end of this year.

Users who opt into the service create a separate profile for dating and are shown suggested people based on their interests, preferences and activities on Facebook.

Additionally, friendships are a relief valve for the pressure of other roles in our lives, like parenthood.

Finding parent friends can be just as fraught and unnerving as dating, so I spoke to two authors who wrote books about parenting and friendship, and to parents from all over the country, about how to find new friends as a parent.

The birth of my second child threw my world into chaos.

I went from being a working parent of one manageable child to a stay-at-home mom with a toddler and an infant.

But by continuing to make my neediness known and asking moms online and offline out for dates, I did find my friends (and I stopped bragging to my toddler about my degrees).

Study after study show that people with strong friendships are happier, healthier and more satisfied with their lives.

Unlike other dating apps, there's no swiping left or right to express your interest.

Instead, you just tap "interested" or "pass" on the dating profiles you receive.

After you fill out that information, Facebook will show you a list of potential friends and what groups and interests you have in common.
