My Black People Meet Review

black people meet

BlackPeopleMeet.com holds the title for biggest black dating site.

BUT is it the best? I think not...

I actually like Match.com better, and I'll explain why...

First, Match has thousands of black singles even though it's not technically a "black dating site."

Because it is so well known (who hasn't heard of Match.com?), it might even have more black singles than BlackPeopleMeet.

Second, Match includes a questionnaire that members have to complete. The questionnaire can give you good insight about a person so you can decide quickly if you should even bother with him or her.

This can help you avoid wasting time going on lousy dates with people that you will never want to see again.

I recommend you give Match a try.


Another option that you can consider is BlackSingles.com.

BlackSingles seems to urge its applicants to provide a more complete profile. Again, this can be a time saver for you in helping you avoid dates with incompatible people.

Here's a BlackSingles.com link.


Ok, back to Black People Meet...

BlackPeopleMeet.com has been around since 2002. The large African American membership base makes it worth considering to join.

On the home page, the site claims to sign up over 1,000 new members a day.

Here are a couple of testimonials from the website:

“I just want to say, I have found true love and the most: beautiful, amazing and wonderful woman, thanks to this site. I want to wish everyone the best of luck in finding theirs. I am terminating my membership on here, since I found the woman I am to share the rest of my life with.”

“I found someone very special on this site, and we are pursuing a relationship. Thanks BPM He is awesome and I'm crazy about him. We would never have met, if it was not for BPM, and to think he was right here in Arlington Texas all along. My Goodness.”

It’s free to set up a profile and search for singles.


Black People Meet Pros & Cons

The Positives

  • The site receives A LOT of traffic. More traffic equals more potential singles for you to connect with.

  • You can spice up your profile with an audio and video greeting.

  • There are loads of search options. This is good because you can eliminate many of the people that you know you wouldn’t match up with.

  • Each member is asked: What are you looking for in a partner? I like this because the answer may help you whether you should make contact or not.

  • Tips for creating a profile. If you want or need tips for creating a killer profile, see the Dating Tips section. A lot of profiles suck. Yours doesn’t have to!

  • The price is right. Currently the membership costs just $14.95 or less per month.
The Negatives
  • The “My Match” feature seems like it could use an upgrade. It's supposed to show your best matches with the click of a button.

  • The site could use a makeover. It’s very plain.

  • Lack of a strong matchmaking component (such as a questionnaire).

My Final Verdict

Despite some flaws, Black People Meet is definitely a good website to meet black singles online.
