What are the Five Best Black Dating Apps?

If you’ve decided that 2023 is the year you’d like to find love, then you’re likely weighing up which dating app to choose. There are so many that settling for one is a challenge! If you would like to use an app designed specifically for members of the black community, then there are plenty of options out there for you to try.

Below you’ll find our pick of the best black dating apps around. All of those listed offer a free tier, so you can try them out to see if they suit you before committing to a paid plan to unlock all their features for finding love.


Designed for single black people to meet and hopefully connect for long-term love, BlackPeopleMeet is the US’s largest black dating site. It offers easy sign-up and profile creation, as well as daily matches and easy-to-use search features to help you find your potential perfect match!

Members can take advantage of audio, live chat, and video options and can choose to receive recommended matches or search through the site solo, browsing the profiles. Many users like the fact that they can send ‘flirts’ or video greetings as well as standard messages.

You can browse the site for free, but you’ll need a paid subscription to be able to message and unlock the site’s full menu of features. Fortunately, the platform’s membership cost is extremely competitive, starting at just $2.99 monthly.


This dating site boasts a membership of 3,000+ members and is aimed at those aged 30-50 looking for love. What makes this platform one of the best black dating sites around is its detailed match features, designed for you to find high-quality matches and hopefully spark romance! You can do this with the help of the site’s numerous messaging options.

The intuitive sign-up process and the fact that members can set up a very in-depth profile are also great advantages. The 35-point questionnaire allows the platform – and other members – to get a really good idea of your personality and for you to create a profile that really lets you shine! A further perk of this site is its CupidTag which works similarly to a hashtag: the idea is you use this feature to add keywords to your bio (such as ‘vegan’ or ‘sports loving’) to allow those with the same interests or lifestyle to find your profile more easily!

As with many other dating sites, it’s free to browse the BlackCupid site, but you’ll need to sign up for a paid plan to access all the messaging features. 


A dating website designed to help black and African singles find long-lasting relationships by making it easy for its members to connect and chat. The free tier allows you to create a profile and for other members to reach out to you to chat or sign up for the premium plan to initiate a chat with as many other members as you like!

The platform is proud of the high level of security it offers and the great quality of its customer service provision. It prides itself on being people-centered and focused on the needs of its members. SoulSingles has recently been featured in JET magazine and several other African-American publications.


Exclusively for use by the black community, the BLK dating app is a very popular platform that offers both a free tier and a paid subscription. The latter unlocks advanced features, such as the ability to undo a like. Upgrading to a premium membership costs $10 monthly.

Once you’ve downloaded the app, you’ll be able to create a profile that includes your interests and dating preferences. The interface is intuitive and easy to use, with a familiar swipe left or right to either dismiss or express an interest in a profile.

BLK deploys an effective algorithm to help members find suitable potential dates by matching them with others who have similar interests and dating preferences. You also have the option to apply filters to narrow your search further manually.

Afro Introductions

Dedicating to helping those of African heritage from around the world find love and romance is what this platform is all about, and it currently has over four million members living in countries across the globe.

This dating site was founded in 2002 and has acted as a matchmaker for thousands of singles over this time. If you’re interested in trying the platform for free, you can do so by accessing limited features such as creating your profile and browsing your matches.

The Takeaway
