Most people get to the point in their lives where having someone alongside them to share all of life’s joys and woes, their triumphs and low points, becomes important. Whether you’re just looking to make a few new friends online, to meet up with people in real life for a date, or you want to get involved in a serious (potentially life-long) relationship, AfroIntroductions aims to help you do so.
The site is designed mainly for people of African heritage or descent. Its members are international so you’ll find people from Africa, the US, Canada, the UK and many other countries. You can locate members who live near you, or grab life by the reins and take it for a ride across to another country or continent.
We’ll run through AfroIntroductions in the way you’ll likely experience it. That is, we’ll begin with the registration process, move on to building a profile, uploading pictures, then on to searching, chatting and any additional features which we think will be useful to know about. So, first things first, registration. Well we’re pleased to report that this is a very simple process which gave us no problems.

Whilst you are encouraged to include more information than you’ll be asked for elsewhere, none of it is intrusive or overly personal. The information requested is required to help build your profile and subsequently to match you with other members. We’ll come to this matching system shortly. Registration can take just a few minutes from start to end, and you don’t even need to verify your email account or enter any card details.
Once you’ve signed up, your profile will be pretty much complete, although you can add extra details. If you decide to upgrade your membership, then you can add more personal information and details to help express yourself. Your profile will include information on your personal preferences, such as the kind of relationship you want, as well as letting people know where you’re from, your age and more.
Dedicated profile builders can include information on their religious or political beliefs, their current home situation, whether they want children and other such details. This helps to provide people with a realistic idea of what to expect if they approach you for a chat, date or more. You can, if you want to, include details such as your bust cup size, hip measurements and so on, for anyone who is very particular about what they’re looking for.
Your profile is complete, well done! Now you can upload up to 5 pictures from your computer, FaceBook or using your webcam. This allows you to show off what you’ve got from all angles, as well as being able to show people your holiday snaps. Providing several photos gives a good idea of what you’re like, and lets you see other people in a variety of scenarios.
Your webcam can be used further still if you’re a Platinum member, as you can upload a video message to say hello.
Your webcam can be used further still if you’re a Platinum member, as you can upload a video message to say hello to anyone visiting your profile page. This is a more personal welcome and encourages people to respond to you. Most members have uploaded a couple of good photos, and some have gone the extra mile to show you their best features. Uploading a photo is not a necessity, however, so you don’t need to worry about strangers looking at your pictures if you don’t want them to.
Once you’ve finished all of this you’ll want to perform a search to find potential dates. This is where all that effort in profile building comes in handy. The system can predict and recommend members who will suit your tastes, or you can perform your own search based on particular parameters.
You can choose the exact location, age range and features you’re interested in; the system then shows you a variety of profile which match your preferences. Having searched through the results, you can view a person’s profile and get in touch by sending a message, engaging in an instant chat or talking over webcam.
Afro Introductions tells you who is online so you can schedule meetings, or you can simply start a conversation with someone who happens to be online when you are. The webcam option, in particular, isn’t something you’ll find on every dating website, so that offers an extra level of personalization and value.
In terms of price, Afro Introductions does cost slightly more than some of its peers. However, given the superior features and the improved chances of finding a date, it offers excellent value for money. There are three packages to choose from: basic (which is free but limited), Gold (which costs some money but allows you to make contact) and Platinum (which costs slightly more again but opens up webcam features, as well as other features). The longer your contract, the more money you save per month.
There’s a lot to like about Afro Introductions, and in our opinion it’s the best site around for anyone looking to date people of African heritage, whether it’s on the continent or in another country in this big old world. Good luck, and here’s to a happy future!
