Afrointroductions is a niche dating site that will allow you to meet African singles. This website is a part of the Cupid Media company, one of the leaders of online dating. Consequently, they have a large user base (they claim to have more than 2.5 million users currently). Fortunately, you do not necessarily have to be African or have African origins in order to register. Indeed, the idea of the website is to put like-minded singles in contact and to create great couples, whether they are interracial couples or not. Therefore, if you are white and if you live in Europe, you can also join the website. You will see that you can meet people who live in Africa, but you also have the possibility to meet people who live near you and who have African origins. So there are a lot of opportunities for new encounters, but according to our experience, if you want to make the website work for you, you will have to subscribe to a paid membership.

Easy to Use

The design of the website is quite simple, and the interface is very easy to use. You can browse among the different profiles and see their profiles pictures, but if you want to send a message to them, you have to have a paid membership to do so unless you are messaging with someone that has a paid membership. Also, there is an “Instant Messenger,” which is a live chat on which you can do video calls, send voice messages. Other than that, there are several special features. For instance, you can decide to use “Cupid Tags”: it is a keyword that describes your personality. Once you choose one of these tags, your profile will appear when someone searches for singles using this particular keyword.

Search Functions

In order to help you find someone with great compatibility, you can use different filters when you search for singles. You can choose the age range, the frequency of activity on the dating site (active within a week, within a month, etc.), if he/she has a photo or not if he/she is a new member, the location. If you use the paid service, you can use even more filters such as their appearance, their lifestyle, their background/cultural values, their hips measurement.

Safety & Security

Regarding the security, you don’t have to worry about your payments for membership since they use SSL encryption. However, you should be careful not talking with fake profiles since there is no email verification process. Consequently, we advise you to only talk with verified profiles.


To sum up, we can say that Afrointroductions is a great website if you want to meet singles from different countries and with different cultures. It could be an interesting experience, and it could be quite easy to find someone with all the great tools available (cupid tags, search filters, live chat, etc.) However, if you want to be able to communicate with all the members, you will have to subscribe to their paid service.
