According to the announcement anyone with a relationship status of “in a relationship” or “married” can’t use the app because it isn’t for them. I appreciate knowing this feature will weed out the Tristan Thompsons of the world.
But wait, does this mean my mom in Cali and aunts in Texas will see who I’m into? “We have designed this with privacy and safety in mind from the beginning.
Your friends aren’t going to see your profile, and you’re only going to be suggested to people who are not your friends.”The app itself was presented by Chris Cox, Facebook product chief, and looks a lot like the Tinder and Bumble apps you’re already swiping on.
The dating app will integrate events and groups you are a part of to help create a more community-based dating experience.
Cox also shared an “unlocking” feature that will let people within groups or events see your page, basically an I’m-single-and-ready-to-mingle option to up your odds of finding love.

If you’re single like me, your first thought is probably "yay, Tinder sucks" followed immediately by WTF does that actually mean.
Like so many other 20-somethings, I was in a series of noncommittal, nonexclusive casual romantic relationships with people I was both sexually and deeply emotionally intimate with, not to mention going out on dates with. And a dating partner was exactly the kind of relationship so many 20-somethings, including me, want.
They went on for weeks, months, even years at a time. This type of "dating partner" relationship is far from a personal invention; in the last two years, so-called dating partners have slowly infiltrated into pop culture.
Consider Lincoln, Ilana's romantic interest on Ilana describes their relationship as "purely physical," and "a fuck buddy situation" at different times throughout the series, but in fact Lincoln offers Ilana something a little deeper and more nuanced than that.
He is loyal to Ilana's friends, answers late-night panicked calls and even provides her with free dental work.
Millennials may not be ready to settle down, Vrangalova said, "[But] that doesn't mean they don't have sexual and intimate needs to fulfill in the meantime. Noncommittal dating answers this set of needs perfectly at a time when you are not ready to fully commit to a single person."The sexual aspect is what's newly unique to dating partners.
