BlackPeopleMeet.com is dating site for black singles or for people who want to meet someone who is black. They provide live chat, email, match suggestions, and a dating magazine. You'll need full membership to access email.
They say they're the #1 dating site for black singles. They have around 349,000 active at any time.
Once you get in you'll find everything you'd expect from a dating website. However access is very restricted until you upgrade your account. BPM has people from all nations and walks of life.
After the sign up, you can create a photo ad and then browse the profiles of others. Free members can't access their mail box until they upgrade. A membership upgrade gives full access to everything. This includes email, instant chat, videos and viewing interest from others. There's also an app that you can use if you prefer mobile.
The site is fast and easy to navigate. My only nag is that if you have a free account you will get directed to the "signup page" whenever you try to access a premium feature.
The searching option helps you find compatible matches. For premium users it shows who is online and who has viewed or bookmarked your profile in the last 10 days. When you come across a profile that you like, you can send a 'flirt' to let them know you are interested. One of the only way free members can show they are there.
This makes for a fun and lively atmosphere. The live chat allows for quick contact and conversation. But again this requires an upgrade to premium.
To Sum Up
Blackpeoplemeet.com is fun, easy to use and navigate. The regular signup specials make it one of the most affordable dating sites around. Despite its name, blackpeoplemeet.com has many nationalities and races in the profile pool.
They are well-established and are in no way exclusive. All races are welcome to join.
