Like any dating site these days, you may run across a few sketchy profiles, but if you are black or of African descent like me, or if you’re looking to meet singles in this part of the world, then this is the site for you. To start, link up your Facebook account, or enter your email, gender, age and location.Share a few words about yourself, and what you’re looking for in a partner, and that’s it! Occasionally the site will prompt you to fill out more of your profile to continue, which can be bothersome if you’re not looking to complete your profile right away.Unique Site Features I found the site layout clear, welcoming and well-designed.
Beyond basic details like age, location, and education, you can specify body type, ethnicity, lifestyle choices (smoking, drinking, etc.), marital status, whether they have kids, religious views, even their star sign.
How to Communicate with Other Members Afro Introductions’ basic messaging system is simple to use, with many options for filtering.
The food is terrible and traffic can be horrific, but the upsides of warm, friendly people far outweigh the downsides.
As I advised in my article on online dating in South Africa, should you decide to sign up for the online dating sites I recommend below, be sure to read member profiles carefully as you might come across a lot of fake profiles. A woman who has only one picture posted, is wearing a tight bikini and making an overly suggestive pose are usually clear signals to steer clear. Afro Introductions is an African dating site under the Cupid Media Network umbrella.
The ability to limit your browsing to Reverse Matches (members looking for someone like you) and Mutual Matches (where the both of you match each other’s criteria) is also quite helpful for finding someone you are truly compatible with.
What is Included for Each Membership Level Kenyan is a much newer site than its sister site Having lived and worked in Kenya, I can tell you that your best success with online dating in the country will be in the big cities such as Nairobi and Mombasa where there is a larger pool of people from which to choose. Having traveled in and out of the country on numerous occasions during my days living in Mauritius (a small island country east of Madagascar, in the middle of the Indian Ocean), I grew an appreciation for the silky smooth brown skin tones of the people that live in this country.Nairobi and Mombasa have an electric nightlife and an infectious energy.You can also “show interest” by clicking a heart icon on their profile or add them to your favorites.The site lets you know when members are online and available for Instant Messaging, and audio and video chat is also supported.Online dating in Kenya grew significantly during the first decade of this century thanks to an influx of high speed fiber optic bandwidth that led to a reduction in internet prices.
