Features

  • Cupid Tags: A cupid tag is a label that reveals your strengths. Whenever someone searches for cupid tags pointing to your abilities, your profile shows up in their search results.
  • Block List: If there are profiles that do not interest you or members who have used offensive language towards you, you can add them to the Block List, so they never contact you again.
  • Account Verification: If you need to appear authentic, AfroIntroductions allows you to verify your account by sending then an identification document.
  • Instant Messenger: AfroIntroductions offers a live chat feature with video and text. However, this feature is limited to standard members.
  • Favourites: If a profile interests you, you can add it to your favourites list to check it out later. Better yet, you will get a notification when someone views your profile or when they add you to their Favourites List.
  • App: AfroIntroductions has an Android app for busy people or those who are always on-the-go. The app has more than 100k installations in Google Play Store.

Ease of Use

Whether you access AfroIntroductions on your computer or mobile device, the site is easy to navigate thanks to its simple layout. The site features a simple menu from where you can access everything you need. Every day, there are about 2000 logins. Every week, the platform receives more than 80,000 active users.

The considerable number of members and visits makes it easy for you to find a match. Any time you login in, there are active users that you can communicate with to initiate relation. Majority of the users are from the U.S., numbering more than 350,000. With the genders almost balanced (with slightly more males than females), it goes to show that there is someone for everyone on AfroIntroductions.

Signing up is a cinch

It takes less than five minutes to sign up and start meeting singles from all over the world. Better yet, you can sign up with your Facebook account, which syncs your details from the social site for an even faster sign up process. Like in any other dating platform, you will need to provide your name, age, gender and email address. Besides, the site requires you to add your preferences to help you find a perfect match.

You do not need to verify your email, so this shortens the process significantly. As long as you are 18 and above, AfroIntroductions approves your profile. Within 48 hours, site administrators accept your profile photo allowing you to meet African singles.

Start meeting other singles 

Once site administrators approve your account, you are ready to mingle. AfroIntroductions uses cupid tags which are small labels that show your strengths. You can search for specific cupid tags to find a match. Anyone who matches you will arrive at your profile based on the cupid tags you are using.

After a search, you can view profile photos for free. You can communicate to your matches through instant messenger, or live video and audio. The system shows you who is active in real-time. There is also a chat room from where you can search for potential dates.

To attract matches, you need to complete your profile. That means adding a profile picture and as many details as possible. When someone views your profile or adds you to their favourites list, you will get a notification. That allows you to follow back those who follow you. Members who publicly display their photos appear genuine and get more profile visits.

You can access most of the features on AfroIntroductions on a free account like viewing profile photos and sending messages to users on Platinum and Gold memberships. However, most communication features are not accessible by free users. So get an upgrade if you can to enjoy the most of this dating platform.

Find love through the mobile app

The AfroIntroductions mobile app has over 100,000 downloads on Google Play Store. Although the app is not on iTunes, Android users have made it so popular. Every month, more than 1,200 people download the app. If you prefer finding love through your phone, an app will make that easy for you.

The app is structured similarly to the web version of AfroIntroductions so you can browse through easily. The user-friendly interface allows you to locate special features such as video and audio chat, make use of chat rooms, add cupid tags, and search freely.
