Charlotte, NC (BlackNews.com) — According to a recent study, even though a large number of black singles meet through college, about 64 percent of married couples meet through friends, relatives, and online dating services. Thanks to a new, exclusive online dating site, African Americans will now be able to meet potential dates who have been filtered and classified as “good-looking.”
“To be considered for membership, a prospect must submit a profile along with an attached photograph,” says J.C Dixon, founder for the new site called AttractiveBlackSingles.com. “Existing members of the site vote on the approval of new prospects. Once a prospect is voted in, they are entitled to enjoy all the luxuries of the community as an accepted member.”
The launching of the new dating site could prove to have perfect timing.
According to NDP Group, an industry leader in research, tracking, and global trends, about 40 million Americans use online dating services, and more than half of that number includes black singles.
Dixon explains that the main goal of the website is to assist the black dating community by matching attractive black people with other attractive people.
“Anyone can apply for a membership, but gaining acceptance is tough,” Dixon states, before adding that, “For every 10 applicants that apply for a membership, only two make the cut.”
Tamera Johnson, 32, of Houston, says she’s thrilled to hear about a dating site that’s not only targeted toward black singles, but also has a rigorous screening process.
“I’ve tried dating sites, but the one thing that I hate is the lack of good-looking people actually on those sites,” stresses Johnson. “If this site is what it claims, then I will definitely give it a try.”
Dixon notes that common complaints like Johnson’s within the black singles community, is one of the main reasons why AttractiveBlackSingles.com was created.
“No longer do I have to hear complaints about how 30 minutes or more may waste away going through an inbox filled with messages from people hoping to get lucky,” Dixon notes. “I have countless conversations where some of my more attractive associates, friends and family say they stopped using online dating sites for this very reason. It is annoying and a waste of time, they claim that some people online are just out of touch with reality.”
