Social Networks for Singles

Looking for love online?

Social networks for singles cater to people seeking romance. There are also numerous ways that men and women can use non-dating based social networks to meet that special someone.

Using Social Networks to Date

If you're interested in using your favorite social network such as Twitter or Facebook to find a potential date, here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Be sure to highlight in your profile that you are looking to date.
  • Ask your friends on that network if they know of anyone they can set you up with. You might be surprised by the response!
  • Be sure to contact users you might be interested in by letting them know that you're interested in dating but that you won't take it personally if that's not their interest.
  • Don't be offended if someone you contact isn't interested in dating.
  • Be sure to ask the right questions if you're interested in dating. SInce the site won't provide additional features for that purpose, you'll have to ask specific questions to get to know someone better.
  • If you do end up finding love, don't let your profile become all about that relationship. Doing so is a great way to make your social network feel like you were only using them for personal gain.
