Finding Love Online: New Dating Site For Black Women Announced
If you’re looking for love there is a new online dating site that will help you find it. The soon-to-launch website iloveblackwomen.net is exclusively for black women and those wanting to date them.
According to a press release (via Digital Journal), the site focuses on matching black women with men of all ethnicities who are specifically interested in dating them. The site will allow only black women to join but black, white, Latino, Asian men and even other women can join the site if they want to date black women.
Anthony Robinson created iloveblackwomen.net, he says, because black women are the most ignored group on dating sites. Even when they join other dating sites, men seldom engage with black women, citing data from a study titled “How Your Race Affects the Messages You Get” done by the dating site OKCupid.
“This frustrated me a lot; black women pay upwards of $60 per month on dating sites but get ignored the most according to the OKCupid study. These sites will take black women’s money but are terrible at finding them love,” said Robinson.
If you are looking for love, there are also other sites that cater to African Americans. Black Singles, run by the Spark Networks (one of the largest networks of dating sites) claims to have more than 1,000 new members joining daily. Afro Introductions is part of the Cupid Media network of sites, and focuses on African-American hookups. Soul Singles, meanwhile, attracts African-American, Haitian, Jamaican and interracial singles. It is more expensive to join than some other sites, but it seems to be fairly popular.
