Free Dating - Facebook groups?
« on: April 18, 2019, 07:06:22 AM »
Just curious: have you ever tried Facebook groups?

I'm currently a member of German-speaking group (approx. 20 thousands members), and two Russian-speaking groups (one with approx. 4.800 members, another with approx. 3.000 members).

The RU group admins praise this method for providing presumably easier and more direct communication, than traditional dating sites.

Shall anyone be interested (and shall Stuart allow  :saint: ) I can post the links to the RU FB groups here.
Leaving Russia is not an emigration, rather an evacuation.

Perhaps send to me in a PM, the link for German speakers.

I’d suggest a fresh topic.

It’ll be nice if you also post a link to here in those groups for the purposes of reciprocity.  ;D

Feel free to cut the fresh shoot off from an old trunk with your administrating pruner at your earliest convenience  :)  :thumbsup:

 :nod: Now or in a new topic?

I meant if you are posting a link from here to Facebook groups then please do the same in reverse.

Topic split per your request, carry on.....

Free Dating - Facebook groups?

1) The most emotionally balanced group - side-project by "Пора валить" (a large community about emigration):
Welcome Mr.Right - soulmate - уж замуж невтерпёж (approx. 4.000 members)
https://www.facebook.com/groups/be2.dating.incontri.global/

2) & 3) Two small "dating" groups on FB, with predominantly Russian \ UA women:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/598304690600226/
https://www.facebook.com/groups/2258078737799482/
* link to RUA duly posted  :saint:

4) A Russian "girls only" group, re-chewing for the hundredth time the same topics that have been already discussed at Antidate some 10-15 years ago, and some topics similar to RUA (where is it better to fish, shall I meet him if I found out that he's writing to other women, etc.)
Approx. 3.000 members
https://www.facebook.com/groups/721810244684127/
* link to RUA duly posted  :saint:

5) An agency-like group, with paid membership for women (!!) and a serious lack of men.
Men are (presumably!) "hand made" - means added by admins after personal chat and personality check (don't ask me how they do it; you know I'm staying away from paid resources  :chuckle: )
https://www.facebook.com/groups/383343472121479/

6) German-only group, approx. 20.000 members:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/268667016560833/
