Facebook friends can be a whole lot of things, whether they're lifelong pals, party partners, co-workers, mere acquaintances, or somebody you literally met on a bus one time. Facebook Dating might bring you and your network a lot closer.

Today, users in the United States can take part in the romantic roll-out, potentially turning their hottest Facebook friends into Facebook friends with benefits. In a recent press release detailing how Facebook Dating works, the social media giant laid out a number of options you’ll get from the new feature.

For starters, if you’re over the age of 18, you can create a new Facebook Dating profile, which will be entirely separate from your main profile. Yes, that means you may not have to go deep and scrub all those party pictures featuring you shirtless, patio lanterns strapped across your chest, from 10 years ago—though you probably should consider it anyway.
