I've been a member of BlackPeopleMeet.com for 2 months. My experience has been somewhat unpleasant, but I can't necessarily blame the site. Because they have no control over the member’s personality flaws, nor do they screen the members. I've talked to a few guys on the telephone.. But they seem to all have unnecessary baggage etc. And I just have to add, all of these men were college educated with professional jobs. So the caliber of men I talked to were pretty decent as far as credentials, education, and aesthetics. But they were lacking in personality and I didn’t feel a connection. I only linked up with one guy in person. We went out on a few dates, but I kept feeling there was something no quiet right about him. Well by the 3rd date he hysterically cussed me out because I refused to go to his condo. After he yelled at me in a condescending tone, I "politely" told his a$$ where to go then ended the conversation. It was obvious he was only looking for sex, even though he claimed he was looking for a serious relationship. But I have no regrets because I see all of my interactions as a learning experience.
The site is easy to use, but you have to be careful to not select the AUTOMATIC RENEWAL. I accidentally did, and was charged almost $70. I sent an email to customer service, and within about 8 days or so the money was credited back into my account. Another pet peeve of mine are those corny Flirts!!! Lol. They need to get rid of those stupid “Flirts, because their annoying. I just gives lazy people a way to contact you with sending a personalized message. Also there's a lot of fake profiles that the company creates to make it seem as though they have more members than they actually do. So don't get fooled. If a guy constantly “likes” all of your pictures, and continuously sends you flirts, chances are it’s a fake profile. If a man is truly interested in getting to know you he will send you a personalized message. I do believe there are a few quality men on Black People Meet that are sincerely looking for a significant other. However, you have to decipher through a lot of trash in order to find that diamond in the rough.
The men are full of #$@#.....Ladies this site is a waste of your time and your money.....The men on this site are looking for ass..PERIOD. and their BROKE!
Seriously??? You have site called "black people meet"?! If there was a "white people meet" site, other races would have a field day with the amount of racist responses it would receive! Not to mention they would automatically assume it had something to so with the KKK. This is so not right, especially considering from what I have read so far, this site is just taking people's money and doesn't even offer what they are promoting. If there was an option for zero-stars, that is what I would have chosen. If you are going to have a site like this, at least give what you offer and be politically correct about it and call it "African-American people meet". Black is a color, not a race.
i was on this site for 1 month. i met someone who lives in the same town as me. well, i sent them a message to contact me on my cell and a few hours later they called, but i had already gone to bed being that it was 9 FREAKIN 30! anyways, i called them back the next day and they said "im at work let me call you back" and didnt answer w a "hello" just answered and started talking. how RUDE! so im waiting for this person to call me back its been almost 2 days and nothing. i other negative aspect of this site is how soooo many people on there lie about their income ($50,000-$75,000) annually GET SERIOUS!!! AND 98% of them claim they are a (NON-SMOKER) LIE!!!! I know so many people who smoke and Ive only seem maybe 3 or 4 people on there claiming they are either a "social smoker" and only found one who was a "daily smoker" These people are so so so FAKE. iIm done bye
Well first off the site is totally against any bashing of them on their own site. I only stated that I am not renewing my membership on my profile and they delete everything off my page. Also the members are more into looking than responding after sending many notes only had 2 replies within 2 months. The site is a total waste of money, I had better luck on eharmony than this crappy site.
I never get any real messages on the site. All I receive are those darn flirts. Then when I reply to the flirts I never get a response back. The site is full of people who send pointless flirts knowing they can't receive or respond to messages because they haven't paid for the service.
I decided to try blackpeolemeet.com because other sites that I've used have predominately white members, and most of the white men on those sites don't seem particularly interested in dating someone who is non-white, so needless to say I wasn't having much luck. I thought blackpeoplemeet.com would give me more options, and opportunities to me someone who I actually connected with. Well needless to say that did not happen.
They definitely inflate your messages to make it seem like you have more activity than you actually do. They send you two messages if someone "flirts" with you; one is the actual flirt, the other is a notification that you received a flirt.
Also, there were not enough members in my area that met my requirements...age, no kids, etc. And the site would always suggest people who were in an entirely different state than myself, which was annoying.
Lastly, the billing practices at blackpeoplemeet.com are abhorrent! They automatically renew your account for another term without notifying you. They don't even send a message letting you know that a charge is pending to your account. I didn't realize that I had been charged until I viewed my monthly bank statements. And to top it off when you send them a complaint their automatic response is that they do not offer refunds. Really?
I responded to the auto-reply message, explaining that it did not resolve my issue. To their credit, after I replied to the auto-reply message I did receive an email response from an actual person in less than 48 hours. She gave me a customer service number to call, to formally request the refund. That's done, and now I'm just waiting for them to "approve" it. So hopefully that goes through without any further incident.
The customer service number is 1-866-727-8920. They are available Monday - Friday (8:00am - 5:00pm) Central Time. I hope this helps anyone who is having a similar billing issue with them!
Well it's been three days... this site sucks. There is definitely a quantity but not quality issue. Lots of men that want to talk about sex (on the first conversation). I specifically put I didn't want anyone with children and they keep sending matches of men with children. Refund policy is non- existent. You can cancel your profile but cannot get your money back for their sorry service. Uhggg three more months of this crap. Don't waist you time!
On day before my subscription was due for renewl, I turned off my auto renewl, then an renewl ad pops up, that u can not remove and would not let me read my email. I email customer service, and for two days no one replied. After finding a good custmer service number, which is hard to find , I called and they would not refund my money. If u do encounter this promblem to read or send any emails either
Worse site ever.Men of low socioeconomic status.They read your profile and want to lecture and abuse you.WORSE GHETTO SITE.I had almost everyboby blocked.WHAT THEY SAY YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR AND AT 10 BUCKS THATS EXACTLY IT.NEVER AGAIN.I am on a different site and the experience is way different.GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBISH.
it this site had the option of a 1/2 star that's the rating i would give black people meet; the men are trash, they are out for their own gain; never met men that were so thirsty to meet at my residence after exchanging one or two texts messages and men that wanted me to take them out or "dry beg" for money; women should take the money used for this site and invest in some stock or something that will have a better pay off
I have been on and off of this site for a couple of years. I have dated several different men and some were really nice guys but no love connection. I have also experienced men who were just on the site for there own gain, but that didn't discouraged me. Within the last year I have been dating a gentleman that I met on the site and hint the word gentleman. My point is sometimes you go through men that are full of the bull but there are some men who are for the right things...You just have to stay positive...
The billing/refund practice is unethical
Let me start off as I'm a white male. I joined this site because I find most sites are 99.9% white chicks. I actually prefer someone dark. Not necessarily African American I also date Eastern Indian women too. So far its not that bad. I have obtained a couple phone numbers, met a few women. My problem with this site is not enough members in my area and age range who are actually paying customers and can talk to you. Other than that I've not had any spam, scammers or anything. I think the numbers are inflated meaning when you get a flirt it also sends you a message. You get 2 messages. The actual flirt then the message saying you got a flirt . I think that part is lame. It's to make it look like there is tons more activity on your account than there actually is because before you pay you don't know all the messages you got were really flirt notifications. I wouldn't recommend it unless your area has lots of paying customers but you can't know that for sure.
I met my husband on blackpeoplemeet.com. I had to surf through a few frogs to find my prince but he was literally the only person I'd met in person. It was definitely worth it. We had a connection from our initial contact.
I am currently a member of Black People Meet. I was very satisfied with this site. I connected with quality men in my Detroit, Michigan area. There were credible men who I met and dated. There are some questionable people but a red flag should go off. Some men use this site to meet women for illicit affairs ( a man told me this; I do not how true it is. However we are all adults!). But on any site, use good judgement and discretion. If you experience any concerns, you can contact a customer service representative on the toll free number of 1-866-727-8920 to speak to a live person.
You can't find any male that is serious or true to the reason for the site which looking for a true mate.
My issue with BlackPeoplemeet is that they suddenly removed my profile. My profile did not include any objectionable language notions or anything else that is negative.
My , 2 days old, profile was in perfect conformance to all their rules.
I spoke to their so called tech support person and he advised that they had no record that they removed my profile. He questioned the email that I got from them thinking it might be not from them!
BlackPeoplemeet tech support ask me to give him REMOTE ACCESS TO MY COMPUTER so that he would check the email I received! Of course, I refused and asked him to tell me the steps he want to perform and I'll perform them. He only asked me to verify the source of the email that notified me that my profile wasn't approved.
I asked him to restore my profile again he said he can't and asked me to call l1 800 827 6364...he said 'they can restore your profile'. It turned out that this number is AOL number!
I'll be filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau of Dallas if they don't either restore my profile or refund my Visa card.

I am glad to report that BlackPeopleMeet customer service are not bad after all.
The important thing is that they continued responding to my emails and finally emailed me the profile that was removed back.
Mistakes do occur and technical gliches can cause lots of difficulties but BlackPeopleMeet customer service proved to be genuinly serious in their resolve to assist customers.
okay site,met only one or two or three wackos.be careful because there are guys who will rush things and are sociopathic.some are con artists from nigeria stating that they will close out and do not write back.post a fake photo.send you a flattering message thats fake.beware.
Same as 'Black Planet'. It is the worst site to look for dates and or meet people. The individuals are fraudulent, ask for money, and wanted to have a perverted conversation. Don't understand how these sites are still operating. I've reported the individuals and they are still on the site. I am nolonger on any of the dating sites. Becareful and alert with the site.
This website is infested with spyware and phishing it is very unsafe worst off all I felt the website could not possibly care less for you after they recieve your monies I was a victim of phishing I imidiately attempted to contact BPM costumer service as I was unable to take control of profile page and was unable to do so they NEVER RESPODED to my please for help futher more the website states that you have the option to click off line that you apear not to be on line but this is not true you have no control over that and dont bother trying to contact costumer service they do not respond and they fail to inform you of the total amount to be charge to your account you will find its more then what they promote to be the monthly fee
I am currently a member and find nice men in my area of Detroit, Michigan. If you have any concerns contact a working customer service number and get assistance. the number is 1-866-727-8920.
I have always met people on this site.
