New online dating site 2016
I had a great time online dating in Africa during my years as an expatriate living in Mauritius and South Africa.
Thanks to significant investment across the continent in information technology and fiber optic bandwidth, the slow and expensive internet connections of the past are slowly but surely becoming history.
Afro Introductions has been extremely successful since it was launched in 2002, with 2,000,000 members and growing. You can either provide your email address, gender, location and age or just link up your Facebook account to start.
As is the case with any dating site, there are a few suspect profiles, but if you are of African descent or Black, or simply interested in meeting Black singles, this is a great place to go. Write a little about yourself, the type of partner you’re seeking, and you’re pretty much in.
The site also supports audio and video chat, enabling you to find out if you and another member might be a good match before meeting them in person.
All-in-all I was surprised by how much they let you do without a complete profile.
Remarkably, almost 70 percent of gay and lesbian couples met online, according to the Stanford sociologist Michael J. And Internet dating isn’t just about casual hookups.
