AfroRomance is an interracial dating site for those looking to date people of another race. It has around 80,000 members, many of whom are in the United States, but it accepts members from most countries. The site is free to join; premium upgrades are required for unlimited email and chat priviliges.

Getting Started

To register on AfroRomance, you simply choose a screen name, and answer the questions on the following two forms. It does ask that you supply your real name and your location. Profiles are moderated by the site's admin, so if you do create a half-completed, silly profile (like I did), chances are it will get removed and you'll have to start again.

Photos are recommended but not required - you can add a photo at a later point if you wish. The whole process should take no more than 30 seconds.

Inside

Afroromance is a site for those interested in initiating romantic relationships that transcend racial boundaries. It focuses strongly on interracial dating and has a diverse group of ethnicities including Caucasian, Black - African and American, Asian as well as many other races.

There is a fair amount of activity - but as the community is only around 80,000 it' still quite a bit smaller than AfroIntroductions. My searches revealed there were typically a 10-20 people online at any given time in my area; but this will depend on your location.

Features

The features available are fairly basic. There's a standard search form which lets you find people by selecting an age rang, and their location - there's also a distance option which lets you filter-out people who're too far away.

Searches can be further refined from the tab on the right hand side. This lets you refine your matches by appearance, ethnicity, occupation and religious background.

Upgrading

On clicking a profile, you'll have the choice to "initiate contact" if the person is online, or send them an email. Both of which require you to upgrade to a paid membership. Sending e-flirts is free, but that's about all. Premium membership also grants additional privileges such as:

  • Finding out who's interested in you
  • Private chat rooms and webcam
  • Secure private calling
  • Telephone support

Conclusion...

With an open mind, there are infinite romantic possibilities here. This site offers a significant advantage over trying to find romantic partners of other races in bars or at social events.

If you attempt to flirt with someone of another race at a bar, there's a possibility that your intentions will be misconstrued. This site is an easy way to navigate the complexities of interactions between different races, and to find romance.

    I have been a long time member of Afro Romance, and I can honestly say; although I am still single and haven't met "THE ONE"(maybe I'm too picky)...... I have made a number of lifelong friends. I have recommended this site to a few other friends who also enjoy the site. The only down fall is that at one point a couple of years back there was a onetime membership fee, which I have, thankfully. But now as I understand it, that no longer exists to my knowledge. I could be wrong. Good luck to all who join.
