Facebook Is Using Their Creepy Stalking To Find Us Love

I will likely hand over my love life to them, because I give up.

Facebook Is Using Their Creepy Stalking To Find Us Love
Tatiana Gonzales

On May 1, Facebook announced their next big update: Facebook dating. Yes, even Facebook is concerned about our ability to socialize and find decent relationships. I guess they must have seen my recent comment about accepting my fate of dying alone with cats.

Based on the information that was given in the announcement, the dating profile will be separate from the normal profile and unable to be seen by friends, so that you do not have to deal with the shame of the awkward things you write in your bio. It is one thing having to create a normal Facebook page for people who I already know, it's another, much more cringy task to have to write a profile trying to make myself seem interesting to people who have no idea who I am. I have already failed at this on Tinder, I guess I am probably going to try again on Facebook.

What I like about this upcoming update is that it is optional and almost completely separate from my normal day-to-day actions on the social media site. When I open the application, I do not expect that I will be drowning in useless notifications that make me realize how desperate humanity is to match up and mate. I will be able to carry on with my personal life, while also being connected to men who only need to know my first name and what my interests are. It's the best of both worlds.

The update is not supposed to be equivalent to Tinder either. Facebook's goal is to create long-lasting relationships—also known as maybe finding me a hubby—not just hookups that many may regret the morning after. I do not know for sure how well this goal will work out, as Tinder and other dating websites and apps probably had the same goal in the beginning, but I like to believe that maybe this will be accomplished occasionally with the use of this new update. I like to think people will manipulate social media in a way that will benefit their life in the long term by finding people that will support them, instead of just using applications to find someone to satisfy their sexual cravings.

Even though I have faced many dating struggles in the past couple years, I do have some faith that maybe Facebook can help create happy, long-lasting romances. I mean, I am pretty sure they know more about me than I do at this point. I have seen the ads on my feed, I know they are watching.

If anyone can find me love, it will probably be Facebook.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
