Signup Process

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.

Prices

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.

Matchmaking & Search Functions

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.

Features & Communication Tools

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.

Safety & Security

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.
