Latin women are pretty popular these days, but what of African women?
Is dating African women a good idea? And what are the things to look out for when dating them?
Major African Nations and Nationalities
African men and women are enthusiastic users of the Internet. My own dating site (Asian Love Connections) has seen African men and women sign up from a whole range of countries within the continent.
Obviously the wealthier countries in West Africa have a greater penetration of Internet usage. In terms of members registering for my site the three dominant countries are Senegal, Nigeria and Ghana.
More surprisingly, my site’s also attracted members from war torn countries such as Angola and Sierrra Leone.
Where to Find African Women Online
There are a vast number of dating sites available these days. These sites cover a whole range of niches.
Two African themed sites are:
If you’re interested in African dating then it’s worthwhile signing up to both sites and checking them out. Both offer free membership, so you can then buy a subscription to the site that you like the look of most.
I’ve not personally used Afro Romance. I’ve used a couple of sister-sites of Afro Introductions. In particular, I’ve been a Platinum member of both Chinese Love Links and Japan Cupid. These sites are essentially identical to Afro Introductions in terms of features.
Afro Introductions also has two sister sites you might like to check out – Black Cupid and Interracial Cupid. Both have a World-wide membership base, and they’re particularly popular with African-American singles.
What I like about the Cupid run sites like Afro Introductions is that:
- They have a big membership base with tens of thousands of women on them. You’ll not find it hard to find members you’re interested in.
- Membership quality is high, with an abundance of intelligent and educated young women.
- The sites have basic matchmaking features, so they’ll suggest women who you might be interested in.
- The search facility is very comprehensive, and it’s easy to search for women who speak a particular language, or who live near a particular locality.
On the downside, I don’t think enough is done to keep the scammers off the sites.
Which of course leads me to the whole issues of African romance scammers…
African Women Scammers – A Real Nightmare!
Many Africans are enthusiastic users of dating sites because these sites offer easy ways to scam people out of their life savings.
In fact, I’ve seen some poor quality free dating sites that are mostly scammer – legit members are very much in a minority.
So I’ll stress how important it is to use a legitimate dating site.
Often these dating site scammers pretend to be American or European (particularly British) men and women. So they’ll post photos of white men, even though they’re actually black.
You might be somewhat safer if you’re actually interested in dating an African woman. After all, even a woman with a “career” as a romance scammer will still want a man in her life.
It’s worth bearing in mind that many African women are also quite busy scamming men on dating sites. It’s been my experience of running my own dating site that the African scam women are more likely to be from Senegal, whereas the men are more likely to be from Nigeria or Ghana.
I’ve blocked Senegalese men and women from using my site altogether. If you’re interested in dating Senegalese women then please be extraordinarily careful. I only banned this country because every single Senegalese woman signing up to my site was a scammer. Every single one!
In all honesty, if you want to find an African woman for marriage then you’re probably better off staying away from online dating sites and meet a woman in person. If you’ve got a connection with a particular African country, then it’s invariably better just to work your contacts there and try to get them to come up with some legit women you can visit.
If you’re a guy who’s just interested in interracial dating, then you might also be better off dating black and ethnic women in your local area. This is going to be vastly safer than using online dating sites.
So while there are a few African dating sites where you can meet women online, it’s quite a risky proposition to seek out an African bride online.
