Dating in this day and age is not the same as what our parents experienced. The days of marrying the neighborhood boy or girl are becoming almost non-existent. Now we have more options of people to choose from, whether it’s at work, school, or being the new person in town. Today it is common to meet someone across the city, the country, and even the world thanks to the Internet and social media.
Online dating websites have grown, with more competing sites available to very specific wants and likes of others. Yet there are singles, which avoid the online dating scene or feel burnt out altogether. Some fear the negative feelings toward online dating; along with the embarrassment of others finding out they have online Dating Profiles. Singles who are skeptical of joining an online dating site, don’t realize there is a very popular website that is accessible to everyone, and is free to browse Single Men and Single Women.
Hmmm…has anyone guessed it yet?
This particular website has been around for years, AND along with 128 million active daily users in the U.S. according to a recent 2013 statistic. We are talking about Facebook. A site which not only many of us check on a daily basis and quite frankly have become addicted to, but a site that can easily connect us to thousands of singles within a few seconds.
How can you easily find thousands of singles in your area?
Facebook recently introduced their new “Graph Search” which now allows you to search for singles with a tool similar to what you would find on a dating site. The graph search allows you to type a phrase into a search bar, such as “Single men who live in Phoenix, Arizona”, and suddenly thousands of profiles of single men in Phoenix will appear in a few seconds.
Sound like magic? The results display singles’ photo along with other basic information such as occupation and a list of mutual friends.
And why are mutual friends important when you are looking for Mr. or Miss Right?
The mutual friends indicator is a huge benefit because you can find out more info through your mutual friend. Is he really single? Does she have 10 cats? Find out more information about your desired target. If you’re feeling daring – ask your mutual friend for an easier introduction to her!
With the information Facebook provides, the first email is easy as you can talk about your common interests. For example, if you find a single man’s profile, which states he is currently friends with your mutual friend Sam. You can also see Sam and the single man went to high school together. This is the PERFECT opportunity to send a message to the single guy, and introduce yourself by saying “Hi my name is Jane. I saw you are friends with Sam and went to Saguaro high school. I have some friends you might know. Anyway, I wanted to say hi.”
It’s as simple as that. As a Phoenix Dating Coach, I have many stories of those who met their spouses on Facebook.
So what are you waiting for? Go check out the Facebook graph search and find single men or single women and snag that date just in time for those Halloween parties. You’ll thank me later.
