Why Did My Facebook Dating Disappear?
June 19th, 2024 by Terri Pinyerd

Lost the Facebook dating feature? Here are a few reasons why you may have lost access to the dating option on the Facebook app.


You Violated Community Standards


In order to maintain Facebook dating profiles, users must uphold Facebook's community standards - which are applicable on both the desktop site and Facebook app.


If your Facebook profile has violated the terms of service, you may lose access to certain features on your current Facebook account, including the ability to use Facebook dating.


You're Not Eligible


Like all other dating platforms, Facebook dating is only available for users who are aged 18 or older. Underage users will not be able to access this feature until they come of age.


Your Dating Profile Was Disabled



If you removed your profile from the Facebook dating app, you may not be able to re-access Facebook dating until your profile is re-enabled.


How To Re-Enable Your Facebook Dating Profile


If you outright deleted your Facebook dating profile, all you need to do is start fresh with a new one. If you opted to "Take A Break", here's how you can re-enable your profile:


  • Open the Facebook app on your mobile phone.

  • Tap the three line menu icon.

  • Scroll down and tap Dating.

  • Tap the gear settings icon on the top right.

  • Tap General.

  • Under Account, toggle off Take A Break.

There Are Technical Issues



Sometimes a lack of access to certain features is due to technical issues with the Facebook server. Here are a few steps you can take before contacting Facebook support with any concerns you're having.


Troubleshooting Steps


Update your app.

Sometimes all you need to do is uninstall and reinstall the Facebook app, or head to the app store to ensure that your app is up to date.


Clear cache.

Clear Facebook cache via your device's settings - this will remove any stored data and might fix any bugs you're experiencing.


Enable location services.

Facebook needs access to your location in order to use Facebook dating, so be sure to allow location access via your device's settings.


Contact Facebook support.

If all else fails, contact Facebook support for direct assistance via the Help Center here.
