Men can dog women out all day. I never dog them out on feeds but my account got removed. The feeds full of misogyny and clingy people always in your inbox.

Yeah, nice community and always worth checking out. You can socialze and discuss many topics. It ain't a real dating site though so if you really want to go into serious dating you rather use large black dating sites sites like or maybe But this is a great black community forum. Been an active member since 2011 so I know there ain't no better community for us. Keep it up guys, you have build up hell of a forum

You have people stealing your posts and pictures. Then they get very disrespectful when you call them on their $#*!, starts with the name calling etc. It's wrong as two left shoes to steal someone's posts and pictures and posts as if it's them

It was a pretty good site but like most of the old social site (myspace) it's gotten worse with age. However the scammers like so many of you mention are easy to spot once you go into their page or once they start to talk to you so I'm not worry about them. As for this site being racist like I saw in two comments that just sounds like right wing propaganda lol.

This was a great website during its Inception. But over the years it has deteriorated due to all the gays, stalkers, and hackers. Some members flood and spam the chat rooms, Some creating fake profiles with the same exact spelling of an already existing profile. I saw one member get harassed and they posted her real name and address. So you are definitely not anonymous at that site. I have been harassed and stalked myself to the point of closing my account, and i will not be returning anytime soon.

I came across at least 3 men who sound like scammers. They come on very strong with the romance but soon start asking for money. They are always from Africa. One is even impersonating member of United States Army! Women need to be very careful. If they are promising you the sun and stars and you have only known them a few weeks, be wary.

Barf is what comes to mind. How can anyone go to a website with a name like this. It is so racist. This website would bring out the worst of people just so they can meet people because of the color of their skin. Absolutely gross idea of anyone interested for this reason. What shade of skin would be dark enough to be on a website like this??? How can anyone looking for a decent human being think that another person who selected this site for skin color could be worthy of their time??

To make this very quick, this site has so many technical issues. Many parts just dont work. Sometimes you cant even log on. If anyone one is tech. savvy. Its a thing call Denial of Service attack and this site to seem to be under one. They always state they are going under maintenance this happens just about every day. I hate to say this but this site seems to be run by ghetto black people. Matter of fact this how much crap I think it is. My page name is damittohell on theirsee ya!

I have met actually 3 people on this site and it was great. Beware of scammers. Some users may want to lure you to other sites.
The site overall is OK. a little slow to load but it is not a nuisance.
Best of all, try to meet locals. Most long distance users are fake.

The worst site to sign onto is "Black Planet". Please if you sign on be very careful. I was on that site for less than a month before encountering a scammer from nigeria, but claimed he lived in the US but working in Nigeria. He is on 'scamvictimsunited'. Be careful. I reported him to black planet and his username is no longer there, but he is on the site under several different users using the same photos. How can "Black Planet" not know. So much for a trusted site.
