AfroIntroductions aims to connect people of African descent with other Africans or others who want to meet them. They have members seeking friendship, foreign marriage or dating. It's free to join but upgrading to Gold membership is required to fully communicate with others on the site.

It has a large pool of active members making it a popular hangout for anyone looking for romance or friendship. There's a good layout and decent range of features which are common across the Cupid Media sites. The service is accessible as well on mobile through their app.



If you complete your “match info” section you'll receive more accurate match suggestions.


Registration

The simple registration takes you through a set of basic questions. Although many of these you can skip till later, I recommend creating a good profile right off the bat. If you don't you run the risk of being deactivated before you even get going.

Once the registration step is done you can immediately begin browsing and bookmarking your favorite profiles.

Another point to keep in mind is that they restrict your ability to view photos if you don't have one of your own. You get to see other peoples' main profile picture but any additional ones are hidden from view.



The alert tab at the top will give you a quick view of your progress. It tells you who's viewed your profile & who's hotlisted you. It also shows you who you've hotlisted, flirted with and viewed.

Fee Access

Everyone starts with the basic (free) account. It allows viewing of profiles, searching, and flirting with others. It even allows you to send (but not read emails). However, in order to unlock messaging, at least sender or receiver need to be a paying member.



Searching

The detailed (advanced) search includes a whole set of additional criteria for filtering men or women matching your preferences. If you complete your “match info” section on your profile, you'll find you receive more accurate suggestions via the automated matchmaking tools.

This is a win-win because it also gives you the best possible chance of appearing when others search for someone just like you.

Upgrading

Gold membership lifts all restrictions on email and chat privileges. If you choose the Platinum membership your profile gets highlighted and appears at the top of the page, and it unlocks some more advanced searching options.

In addition, Platinum members can choose to browse anonymously so that other won't know when they've visited their profile.

Afrointroductions openly welcomes men and women of all races, nationalities and backgrounds. This favorably adds to the variety of the user community. That makes it a worthy choice if you're looking for a romance that crosses racial lines.

To help with language barriers, they offer basic translation software for translating messages between other languages. While there are online tools available, this one is integrated with the messenger. A Platinum membership is required for the translation service.

The good

  • User friendly format
  • Huge range of features
  • Free account holders can communicate
  • Very large, active user community
  • Members can fully customize their profiles including privacy and notification settings.

The bad

  • Standard layout means it is not customized to its audience as are some other ethnic sites.
  • Site has been known to attract scammers.

    Not better or worse than most others. Well..... main priority about joining a dating site should be not to leave your common sense outside the door. I see a lot of people complaining about scammers, some even experienced getting ripped off.... honestly, why would you even consider sending money or things to someone you never met eye to eye? Why do you even fall for sweet words?

    Oh yes, I also experienced lots of people (mostly stating being from west africans countries, sorry, but just stating facts here....) trying their best to scam me - never happened. If you read their messages and actions, they are so easy to see through - so open your eyes, and for goodness sake, think! when you decide to be on a site like this. Getting ripped off is also partly one's own fault by not thinking and not having common sense.

    Anyway, my experiences about this site (apart from the would-be-scammers) are only good. I met my fiancée here and we are expecting our first child in january - and I we could not be more happy.
    So, you see - the site can actially work well....

    What a waste of time. I am from Nigerian and I live and work in Dubai.. I try to create a profile with Afro. For about less than a week now, I have created 4 account. After creating a profile my profile will be laminated for no reason. If Afro doesn't want Nigerians to create account with them . please they should list it out on internet. Than to be wasting people effort and time for nothing. Afro should try and fixed this issue it's just don't worth it?????

    Please let no one install afrointroductions or upgrade their membership, I was asked to upgrade my membership and after I did, my account was immediately suspended. They now sent me a mail saying that for my account to be reactivated, I have to send my site name, a scanned photo of my debit card and my email address in order for my profile to be reactivated. Well I have sent all they requested for and now they are asking for my international passport which I won't give them. I've disclosed all my informations but still my profile isn't reactivated. Please beware of fraudsters
