BlackScene.com – Black Dating Site
BlackScene.com is a fun and innovative dating site designed for black singles throughout the world, or members of other ethnicities who prefer interracial dating and wish to meet a black single. Although originally designed to be geared towards African-American individuals, the site has a huge user base of members with alternative ethnic origins from Caucasian, to Asian to Hispanic. The site also offers romantic opportunities for gay and lesbian singles as well as heterosexual users.
The site has a professionally crafted and well designed interface, allowing you access to wherever you want to be on the site with a simple click of a button. Incredibly easy to navigate, it offers constant help and guidance across the site for those members who need it, and can be easily switched off by users who are more familiar with the format of a dating and personals site.
Before signing up you may take a free site tour, to get a greater understanding of what each membership level offers, and the features available. There is also an extensive section dedicated to testimonials and success stories. As BlackScene.com is constantly evolving, and developing its current services and adding more features, there is a great support system both online and via the telephone which offers help and advice to both its premium and free members 24/7.
There are two types of membership – standard (free) and premium. All users will join the site on the same level, with the opportunity to develop and create a fantastic and extensive profile, perform basic searches, and make use of limited contact options.
Although you are under no obligation to upgrade, it is worth contemplating purchasing a subscription if you are serious about finding someone. Subscription can be bought on a monthly basis, or in increments of 3 months, which works out substantially cheaper on a long term basis. This then entitles you to full and unlimited site access, including use of advanced searching, priority listings and a lot of fun ways to initiate conversation and ‘break the ice’.
Registration is fun and detailed, and offers one of the most extensive and interesting ‘about me’ and ‘about my ideal match’ sections that you will find available on the net.
Details deemed as not important on other sites are celebrated here, and signing up is made enjoyable rather than a tedious process. All the basic essentials are in there, from your body type, to any piercings/tattoos, to the languages you speak, and your education level. These and many more are in your ‘about me’ section, and can be selected when choosing your ideal match preferences. However the little extras are what makes the profiles stand out on BlackScene.com including your favorite film and music, best date you’ve ever had, where you see yourself in 10 years time, and your hopes and ambitions for the future, amongst a huge range of other topics. On BlackScene.com it is all about the details.
Once your account profile is complete, and you have added photos if you wish to do so, you may then begin searching through the thousands of great members on offer.
Free users may perform both basic searches and quick browses. Quick browses are exactly as the name suggests, and allow you to quickly browse through a huge range of members by selecting one specific filter, such as displaying only members who are currently online, or those new to the site etc. Basic searches are slightly more specific, enabling you to select an age range, gender and location for your ideal match.
Premium users have additional facilities, the most useful of which is the advanced search. This displays a huge range of search parameters, allowing you to be as controlling or liberal as you wish when searching for a potential match, displaying members that exactly match your search criteria and priorities.
Once a search query has loaded you may then begin browsing through all potentially compatible members, and choosing those who appear most interesting to you.
Contact options are basically non existent for free members, who can only access their ‘hot list’ in order to add new members to their list of favourites.
Premium members have an extensive range of additional extras including public and private chat rooms, emails, instant messaging, and the ability to send ‘virtual flirts’, which are a fun and cute way of telling another user you are interested in them. A great bonus feature is a VIP premium member’s only discussion forum.
Other site features include personality and character tests, member blogs and forums, dating and safety advice, and relevant links.
BlackScene.com brings the fun element back into online dating, and focuses as much on bringing its community together through enjoyment as it does on high tech features and functions. The site has an incredibly friendly bunch of users, and offers great value for money. Spending hours sifting through profiles has never been so much fun, so if you want a black friend, date or partner then this site could open up brand new doors for you.
