AfroIntroductions is a dating site owned by Cupid Media focused on african and african american dating. This is an easy to use site with a large selection of African women to meet. The free standard membership is a great way to take a look at the site without having to pay upfront. Another “pro” of this site is that not all singles featured are currently living in Africa. People of African descent (and singles looking to meet them!) can sign up no matter where in the world they currently live. The mobile app for your Smartphone is a great way to use the site and get to know great people while on the go.
