Dating a friend
If they pick you as one of their secret crushes, you both get notified.
You can add any of your Facebook friends even if they haven’t created a Dating profile, the company said.
But it’s not okay to necessarily on some of those feelings.
When people are overwhelmed with feelings like anger, hurt, or jealousy, it can be tempting to lash out.
In Hasha’s opinion, it’s completely acceptable for you to communicate that hurt, but she advises to “stay away from accusatory statements like ‘You totally stabbed me in the back!
If that friend has opted into Facebook Dating and likes you back, they get a notification saying someone likes them.
Her advice is to be as open and honest as possible, but make sure you’re also prioritizing yourself and your mental health.
“Do what you can to heal and preserve the friendship,” she says, “and if that doesn't feel possible, reserve your right to keep your distance, at least for a while.”While one fight or betrayal isn't necessarily grounds for a friend breakup, it is important to make sure you're surrounding yourself with healthy relationships.
Hasha says that the two keys to maintaining your friendship are communication and boundaries.
“Remember that if you truly care for your friend, their friendship is valuable, even as romantic relationships come and go,” she says.
