In recent years, niche dating websites have become all the rage. These sites cater to the relationship needs of specific segments of the population on the basis of religion, sexuality, ethnicity or race. JustBlackSingles.com is one such niche dating site which is fast becoming popular in the African origin community.
JustBlackSingles.com is for single black men and women from UK, Ireland and South Africa
As implied in the name, JustBlackSingles.com is tailored to meet the relationship needs of single men and women of African origin. The site caters primarily to users from United Kingdom, South Africa and Ireland as evident from the fact that the home page contains links to online dating in each of these countries. However Black singles from anywhere in the world are welcome to sign up on the site which claims to have around two million registered users in its database.
JustBlackSingles.com appears to encourage members looking for heterosexual relationships only since there are no provision for ‘men seeking men’ or ‘women seeking women’ in the sign up page. However members can look for various kinds of relationships at the site including partners for casual dating, companionship, long term relationship and even marriage.
Signing up at JustBlackSingles.com
Like most popular dating sites, it is completely free to join JustBlackSingles.com and quite easy too.

After answering these, you will be required to give details about your educational background, occupation, lifestyle habits like smoking and drinking, marital status, your thoughts on having children as well as your religious beliefs and cultural values. This section is quite important since the African race is highly diverse in terms of religious and cultural practices, which is why you need to be quite clear about your own personality as well as your requirements in a partner. Finally you need to upload your photo to complete the process of profile creation after which you are all set to browse for suitable matches.
