Sign-up Process

Signing up for BlackPeopleMeet is straightforward, simple and very fast; to give an idea of just how fast it is, there are only 5 screens total when you sign up, and one of those is asking about signing up for a paid premium membership.

When you sign up for BlackPeopleMeet, you need to provide your personal information, including: your birth date, zip code, a profile description, at least one photo, and a username and password. You do not have to provide your real name on your public profile if you don’t want to do so.

Free membership does not require anything to sign-up beyond the basic sign-up information.

Paid memberships do require you to provide billing information. You can sign up for a paid—called “premium” on the site—membership at the end of the sign-up process, when you will be prompted to upgrade to premium membership status.

BlackPeopleMeet has features similar to other black dating sites in addition to some unique fun features that help it stand out from the crowd. The most notable features include:

Pros and Cons

Pros

The primary pros of BlackPeopleMeet are:

  • All users, free or paid, can view user photo uploads
  • Detailed profiles make it easier to find potential matches you are interested in
  • Flirty “games” make it more fun to find possible matches
  • Sign-up is fast and easy
  • Chatroom and messaging options make it possible to communicate with interested matches easily
  • Private call service lets you talk to possible matches without having to share personal information
  • You can stay relatively private by excluding your real name and details from your public profile

Cons

The primary cons of BlackPeopleMeet are:

  • Free membership is limited to communication through “flirt” nudges
  • Only one privacy option for photos—public—so your photos can’t be made private to certain users or paid members
  • No identify verification means a higher uptick of fake profiles
  • Most of the website’s features are for paid members only, which makes free memberships very limited
  • Some features require the purchase of credit tokens

Privacy

BlackPeopleMeet is very privacy-friendly. Users only need to submit a username and password, they do not need to submit their real name or display their real name on their public profile. The website does not require any identity verification, so you do not need to provide any personal information when signing up outside of your zip code and a birth date.

However, it should be noted that all photos are defaulted to being public to all members of the site, meaning both paid and free members. This may be a hindrance if you only want certain photos displayed for certain members, or even for paid members as a whole. On the other hand, this is a benefit for free members, who do not need to go behind a paywall to view other member’s photographs.

Ease of Use

BlackPeopleMeet is very easy to use, even for people who are not well-versed on dating websites. The website has a clean design and organized layout that makes it easy to find whatever section of the website you are looking for without any trouble. Although there is currently no official app, the website is mobile friendly and is easy to use from your smart phone or other mobile device. The website works very well, with photos and pages that load quickly and without slow loading times or other errors common to poorly coded websites.

Subscription Prices

The cost of a paid membership will vary depending on how many months of subscription you are buying in advance. A 1-month subscription currently costs $16.75/month, while a 3-month subscription costs $41.85, or $13.95/month; and a 6-month subscription costs $71.70, or $11.95 a month.

Editor’s Verdict

BlackPeopleMeet, which was founded in 2002, is one of the older black dating sites still active today. It has features typical of most dating sites, along with a few unique games and features that give it a little something special. The website is easy to use and easy to sign up for, although only paid members will be able to get the most out of the sites exclusive features, which are for paid members only. Despite the website’s name and target market, it is open to all ethnicities, so some users may feel frustrated when searching for matches if they have the expectation that it is black singles only.

Users who sign up for paid memberships will have access to most of the website’s features without requiring token purchases, including chat rooms, the ability to message, and an on-site call service that lets you all other members without revealing your personal phone number.

In all, BlackPeopleMeet is a solid black dating site that is most beneficial for paid members who are willing to buy access to the service’s paid-only features in order to make the most of the site’s matchmaking potential.
