Top 5 Black Dating Sites
For reasons unknown to me, most of the really big dating sites seem to attract mostly white folk. That’s fine if you’re white, or looking for a white partner, but, if you’re not, it could pose an obvious problem. Being Persian, I’ve already written an article on Persian dating sites (as well as Hispanic dating sites, if you're interested) and I’d like to now do the same for black dating sites on the internet where Africans or people of African descent can seek out others of a similar background.
The Alexa rating for this site suggests that they do indeed get “1,000 new members every day.” You can join for free, but, unlike some sites, you’ve got to create an account before you can browse the singles. If you want to buy a membership, you’ll be able to instant message other members, receive and send messages, use the message boards and more. An interesting disclaimer which can be found at the bottom of their site states that members are not subjected to background checks prior to joining.
Another highly-ranked Alexa rating suggests that this site has a lot of offer in terms of how many members there are. Soulsingles.com was featured in a 2006 issue of Jet magazine which interviewed black singles who’d fallen in love online. It’s free to create a profile, free to browse and free to send a flirt. You can also easily control who has access to you and who does not, simply by blocking their profile.
This black singles site is very easy to navigate and, like the others, free to join. You’ll find people from all over the world and several categories you can search by. The site also offers both a black singles chat room and an interracial dating chatroom, for those who might be interested.
AfroIntroductions allows free members to create a profile, express interest, contact paid members and receive mail from paid members. If you become a gold member you can use their instant messaging service as well, and if you become a platinum member you can contact free members and allow them to contact you back. It’s a simple enough system and easy to use.
This black dating website is structurally similar to the site above, but the membership services are a bit different. Free members can send a flirt, and communicate with paid members; gold members can instant message and read messages from free members, and Platinum members can use the video messaging service for communication, as well as have their messages translated into another language.
