First, tap on the Hamburger icon in the top-right corner of the Facebook Feed. The icon looks like three horizontal lines.

  1. Tap on “Dating
Tap on “Dating”
Tap on “Dating”

In the “Menu,” look for the “Dating” option and select it. You’ll see multiple shortcuts here, such as “Saved,” “Reels,” “Events,” and more.

Open “Dating” and follow the next step to remove your account.

  1. Go to “Settings” – ”General” – “Delete Profile
Go to “Settings” – ”General” – “Delete Profile”
Go to “Settings” – ”General” – “Delete Profile”

When you open the Facebook Dating page, look in the top-right for a gear icon. I can’t take a screenshot because Facebook doesn’t allow it.

Tap on the Gear icon, and you’ll get to the “Settings” page (see picture above).

Then, select “General” from the top, and then scroll down until you see the “Delete Profile” option.

Tap on that and go through the confirmation process to delete your Dating profile. Facebook will ask why you want to delete the profile at one point.

You can say whatever you want because it doesn’t matter.

How Can You Hide the Dating Shortcut?

Do you also want to hide the Dating shortcut, so it doesn’t show in your Facebook shortcuts anymore?

Follow the steps below to do that:

  1. Go to Facebook Settings and select “Shortcuts
Go to Facebook Settings and select “Shortcuts”
Go to Facebook Settings and select “Shortcuts”

On the “Settings & Privacy” page, scroll down until you see the “Shortcuts” option under the “Preferences” menu.

Tap on that and move to the next step.

  1. Tap on “Shortcut Bar
Tap on “Shortcut Bar”
Tap on “Shortcut Bar”

On the “Shortcuts” page, tap on the first option – “Shortcut Bar.” That’s where you can customize the various shortcuts shown on Facebook.

  1. Tap on “Dating
Tap on “Dating”
Tap on “Dating”

Select “Dating” from the list and then choose “Hide” to hide the shortcut from the Shortcut Bar.

Select “Dating” from the list and then choose “Hide”
Select “Dating” from the list and then choose “Hide”

This means you won’t be seeing the Dating shortcut anymore. This option is great for you if you want to stay clean from dating for a time.

You won’t be bothered by the temptation of seeing the Dating shortcut over and over again.

Conclusion

It’s very simple to delete your Facebook Dating account. After you open the Dating feature, go to Settings – General – Delete Profile.

You’ll be asked to confirm the account deletion and your reason for deleting it. After you get through these steps, the account will be deleted.

You can also hide the Dating shortcut from your Facebook shortcuts by going to Settings – Shortcuts – Dating – Hide.

That’s it!
