While we could have created a really exhaustive list, the Black dating sites below are the one that we felt best hit the mark for relationship minded Black singles. Topping our list of best Black dating sites is Soul Singles.
Overview of Soul Singles
Right off the bat, we should make it clear that Soul Singles is geared towards professional, mature Black men and women seeking something more than a hook-up. The site excels for a number of reasons: solid search filters, informative profiles and a very diverse community of Black singles geographically.
Registration is easy (not nearly as long as eHarmony) and once you’re in, the search filters will make it easy for you to browse and connect. Soul Singles offers many of its features for free, but to get the most out of this site you will need a Platinum Membership. Once Platinum you can unlock conversations and greatly increase your chances of meeting someone special. Oh, and we should also mention that as a Platinum member anyone can message you — even those members who are not Platinum.
We definitely think it’s worthwhile giving Soul Singles a try. Once registered you will see that there’s no shortage of Black singles on the site looking to meet someone special.
Notable Black Dating Sites
While not as popular as it used to be, Black Singles is nonetheless a good site to consider if looking to meet single Black men and women for a date and possibly marriage. The site is free to join, but like most Black dating sites of quality, you will need to upgrade with a membership to unlock all the features. The site features such as their chat and search filters are good and the profiles are meaty (informative) which is always a plus.
You’ve probably seen their TV commercial and as a result of these national media campaigns, Black People Meet is one of the best Black dating sites out there. While the profiles are not as informative as Soul Singles or Black Singles, it is nonetheless a very popular Black dating site.
Afro Introductions is another popular Black dating site. The site is especially good for Black men (or White men for that matter), looking to meet a Black woman overseas. That said, there are also plenty of opportunities to meet Black singles (and white men) in the US or Canada. The site is quite active and popular. Click here to sign up to AfroIntroductions.
BlackPlanet used to be a social network for the African-American community, but these days it more or less operates as a Black dating site. While not nearly as popular as it used to be, it still boasts an impressive number of singles for you to meet.
Another to make our list of ‘Best Black Dating Sites’ is BlackCupid. Catchy name, right? The site is part of the Cupid Media network of niche sites and like many of their other sites, BlackCupid has its fair share of White men seeking Black women. That being said, there are also plenty of single Black men seeking Black women.
Black Fling is a very different type of dating experience than the other Black sites we have listed above. As the name suggests, it is a casual Black dating site where hooking up is very much in the offing. The site is premium (paid membership required), and please be advised that nudity is allowed on Black Fling. In other words, it’s a not safe for work site. For those looking for something very casual Black Fling might be a good site for you to check out.
