Come one, come all black singles in South Africa. SAReunitedBlackSingles is the online dating site for the lonely black single looking for a good time, a long term relationship or just a shoulder to cry or lean on. The login process is easy at first, until you get to the annoying bit where you have to verify your email address before you can proceed any further. Surely, this is something that can wait until after we’re all logged in and raring to go?

After you’ve logged in, you’ll be required to fill in all your profile details. You’ll be asked everything from height to weight to hair colour to education, and you get to indicate who you’re perfect match would be… or at least what they’d be like. You can delete your profile quite easily, and the site is monitored and generally scam and spam free – always a good thing. There are thousands of personal ads and they even have a two-way matching system – so you’ll know if you’re match likes you too. Basically, you find matches via very advanced searches: popular profiles, new profiles, logged in members, modified profiles, gallery, keywords, name, birthdays etc. and then either ‘favourite’ the person you like, or continue browsing. Once you’re ‘favourited’, you’ll be able to see the hotties (or notties) who like you under your fan tab. It’s all quite exciting, really.

As a free member, you can respond to messages with one-liners, but need to upgrade in order to make use of the IM functions and chat rooms. You can also set up your own personal photo gallery and invite people to view it.

Overall, the online dating site is privacy conscious, it caters to black singles looking for love, and it offers a few great services with the basic membership. It’s a solid choice for a dating site. Check out our heart rating and break down below, for a little more cheeky info. 😉

Let’s break it down:

Exclusivity: For black singles only.
Number of Members: Between 20,000 and 25,000 singles signed up.
Instant Messaging: Yup. You get conversations as well as an inbox, and even a few chat rooms.
Video Uploads: Nope.
Match Questions: Nope.
Privacy: Safe and anonymous, and pretty privacy conscious since you can report or delete those who might bother you.
Picture Uploads: Yup. You can upload up to 10 photos as a free member.
Cost: Upgrading will unlock a whole bunch of new features and will cost you anywhere between R60 and R1200. Yikes.
Email Notifications: Yup. Choose what you’d like to be notified for under your account tab.

Drawbacks:

– A wee bit pricey, what what?
– Filling out all the profile questions is made laborious by the fact that you have to do it straight away.
– You have to verify your email address before you login.
