Founded in 2002, with around 1 million members, BlackPeopleMeet is the largest and most successful online platform for black singles in North America. Top features include “Message Ideas” for novices and “Promote Me” tokens for bold daters wanting to boost their visibility. With excellent value for multi-month packages, BlackPeopleMeet is definitely worth trying.
The BlackPeopleMeet login is very simple to navigate, and the signup process could not be easier. New users will be asked some very basic questions, starting with the gender they are looking for, location, and a username and password followed by their date of birth. They will then be asked to upload a photo, which can be postponed to a later date, and to describe themselves in a few sentences. Further details that can be included in the profile are lifestyle choices, religion, ethnicity and hobbies.
BlackPeopleMeet offers monthly membership, priced in the common way for online dating - it gets cheaper the longer you commit to. While the free membership includes building a profile and browsing the profiles of other members, the paid membership will unlock the site’s full functionality.

There are no in-depth questionnaires or personality quizzes at BlackPeopleMeet and the site does not learn from their users’ behavior on the site. It is therefore recommended to include as much information as possible in the user profile, as the site offers a keyword-based search. In addition, users can use the “Today’s Matches” feature, which suggests five potential matches on a daily basis.
BlackPeopleMeet has both a basic and advanced manual search function. The basic option allows you to find someone via general criteria such as distance, activity on the site and who is online now. The advanced search provides an impressive range of search terms, including physical features, lifestyle and even Zodiac sign. These options are especially useful considering there is no algorithm used to suggest matches.
BlackPeopleMeet offers tools which are genuinely useful, enhancing the dating experience. Communication options range from email, instant chat, audio and video greetings, to sending ‘Flirts’. However, there is no audio or video chat to talk to other users, and there are no chat rooms. The “Message Ideas” are a great feature for tongue-tied singles to help with the first move and summarize exactly what a potential match might be interested in.
Thanks to BlackPeopleMeet’s lists, users can easily see who is currently online now and who viewed their profile. In addition, members can highlight their own profile by purchasing “Promote Me” tokens which will boost their profile’s visibility in other members’ searches.
BlackPeopleMeet shows that excellence does not need to be compromised for the sake of safety. Security is paramount, and users will find some useful safety tips for online and offline dating. Singles who wish to keep their identity private, can turn off their online status to browse ‘anonymously.’ In addition, threatening users can simply be blocked.

The site’s tag line, “Creating Relationships. Connecting Lives” just about sums up what you can achieve as a user. Thanks to a user-friendly interface, great value for money, a wealth of features and an unrivalled range of users, BlackPeopleMeet is a winner for bi-racial and black singles.
