Black People Meet is a place where African-American people
find each other and change their lives.
BlackPeopleMeet is site focusing on African-American friendships, relationships and anything else. Despite it technically concentration on said niche, it is available for anyone who wants to join. The website was started in 2002 and has grown to host over 4 million users every month. Men and women visit the site in nearly equal proportions, with a few more percent of male users. As expected, most users are African-Americans, but the site invites people of all races to join and make use of the site.
The site needs users to fill in some details, like their zipcodes, which should increase the number of real users. You can use your Facebook account and, for example, import some pictures from it. You can write a few sentences or a lengthy description of who you are, what you like and what people you are looking for. The signup is quite fast, so you don’t need to spend too much time filling out information on many, many pages. You can upload even 30 of your pictures, so no need to stress over having to choose just a few of your best ones.
You can browse different profiles and view each day’s featured matches. You can pick the people that you might be interested in and the ones that are not your type. Apart from that you can view users that are currently online and available to chat. A big downside is not being able to message other users if you have a free account. This does limit your options a lot. In this case, you can use the Flirt feature, in which you can indicate your interest in other users. Another interesting feature, available to premium users, is the ConnectMe feature, in which users can call each other. However, all free users can view other people’s complete profiles, including all their pictures. There is plenty of info you can include in your profile details, especially in the biography section, in which you can write about yourself freely.
The expression features of the site are rather extensive like this, so your profile can represent you in the best and most accurate way. BlackPeopleMeet works very smoothly and effectively, the layout is clean and organized, so everything can be accessed easily.
Even though plenty of interpersonal contact options are only available to premium users, the paid version of the site is affordable and worth its price, since it contains a lot. You can buy credits to use but also a membership for a certain period of time. Other features that require a membership are called MatchMe and PromoteMe, and they can help improve the functionality of the website for you. You can also view the users who Flirted with you or put you in their Favorites. PromoteMe will make your profile more visible to others, you will appear here on the site. If you enable MatchMe, you will appear higher in other people’s matches. Additionally, there is a feature in which you can get other people to correct and upgrade your personal profile, if you don’t know what else to say or are unsure about the presentation of it.
It is definitely a good idea to create a site made specifically for African-Americans, who are often ignored on mainstream dating sites. BlackPeopleMeet is a safe site that wants to connect people with each other and intends to focus on African-American people who represent the majority of the site, but it doesn’t want to exclude other races from joining. You have a chance to make friends, find dates, just as much as the majority of the site’s users. BlackPeopleMeet also offers a mobile app that is a very high quality app as well. Generally, although it is not a mainstream dating site, it’s effective, makes it easy to contact people and offers entertaining features.
