AfricanLove is an ethnic match site and offers a good range of chat and messaging features to help you integrate into the community. If you want full access you need to join as premium member; the cost for 1 month is $39.99.
As part of the World Singles dating group, AfricanLove has a good range of matchmaking features and an easy format. The site's small community of about 6,400 come from numerous different countries. But there is an emphasis on the African continent itself and on romantic connections between races.
The aim of AfricanLove is to allow people to mix and mingle on their own terms. Needless to say, you don't have to be African to join.
The features offered by AfricanLove are fairly typical including chat, email, video connections, flirts, and compatibility tool. It can be accessed in three different languages - English, French, Swedish and German.
What You'll Get for Free
A basic account on AfricanLove is free. But if you want access to a more comprehensive array of options then the Platinum Membership is necessary. Under this plan you can read and reply to an unlimited number of email messages an unlimited number of times.
I think a free membership is the best place to start because it allows you to search for potential matches and get a sense of the quality of other users on the site before committing to a paid subscription.
