Our Review

IWantBlacks is another offering by Together Networks Holding Limited, the company behind dating sites Flirt and QuickFlirt. This time, black singles are placed front and center so people can date and give love a shot.

With over a million members worldwide, IWantBlacks utilizes safety precautions such as blurring the photos of its members and introducing the Safe Mode features for all of its users, paying or standard.  

Even with protocols that aim to produce secure romantic connections among its members, plentiful reports still claim that most of the profiles at IWantBlacks are bogus. So, we decided to take our sweet time and check every single feature and cost of this black dating site.

  • Over 300,000 monthly visits worldwide
  • Records over 120,000 monthly new visitors worldwide
  • Top visitors are mostly from the US, the United Kingdom, and Australia
  • Male users outnumber the females
  • Most users are age 25 and up

Top users of this black dating site are males, and their age gaps are not far from each other. Most of the IWantBlacks members are aged north of 25; quite surprisingly, those in their late 50s are much more active than those from the 18-24 age brackets.

Although IWantBlacks is also a flirting site like its sisters, it seems like members are also open to long-term relationships or hookups through the platform.

In terms of ethnicity, IWantBlacks does not prohibit other races from signing up. Caucasians, Asians, and Latinos can all sign up as long as they’re respectful and looking forward to date black singles.

Unlike other dating sites, IWantBlacks doesn’t put importance on marital or parental status.  Given the age range, however, we can safely deduce that some of the ladies and gents you’re going to meet here are unattached single parents.

IWantBlacks also opened its doors to the LGBT community, so plus points for inclusivity.

Signing Up

Iwantblacks Sign Up

  • 2-3 minutes sign up process
  • One-step registration process
  • Sexual preference, age, email address, and location are asked upon registration

Signing up at IWantBlacks is a piece of cake. Even if it doesn’t offer an option to register via Facebook, the process starts and ends with one form.

For starters, you need to be at least 18 years old to become a member of IWantBlacks. Then you’ll select your orientation and preference (a man looking for a woman, a woman looking for a man, a man looking for a man, or a woman looking for a woman) and key in your age.

You will also need to input your email and password. IWantBlacks will automatically tag your location (city and zip code), but if it’s incorrect, you may edit it manually.

After making sure you put all the right details, select “Join Now!”

Before taking a look around IWantBlacks, you’ll need to activate your account first. The dating site will email you an activation link and code. Press the link to activate, or key in the 4-digit code to complete your registration.

Making Contact

Iwantblacks Contact
  • Sending messages is a premium feature
  • Browse members one-by-one through the Like Gallery
  • Send out “winks” for free
  • Add members to Favorites for free

In terms of communication, IWantBlacks offer several features for its members.

Given the claims on fake accounts, the dating site limited the accessibility of standard members to this functionalities. That way, a person with malicious intent may be dissuaded to continue, because they have to shell out some money first.

  • Winks

Even in real life, you share a wink with someone to show you got them or you’re interested in them. At IWantBlacks, this wordless interaction can be the start of a flirtation. What’s probably the best part is that this feature is for free.

  • Like Gallery

If you’d instead check on a member one-by-one, then head to IWantBlack’s Like Gallery. A pretty simple game of cute or not, this free feature shows you a member’s photo with their name and age. Hit “x” or “heart” whichever you prefer.

At the bottom, you’ll see the members you liked and the members who liked you. A third tab, Matches, will show you if both you and a member liked each other. If that’s the case, go and shoot your shot.

  • Favorites

Keep a record of all the members you find attractive by adding them to your Favorites list. That way, you can always head back and consult your Favorites and never worry that you missed out on someone. This feature is also free, so go ahead and add some more.

  • Chat

The primary communication function of IWantBlacks is understandably for paying users only. Aside from sending texts to your matches, you may also share photos and videos for more vivid interactions on chat.

Standard accounts are given a total of five (5) free chats so they can try out the function for themselves.

One minor beef we had with the website is that we receive numerous messages and interactions right after verifying our test account.

Since the account was new, it didn’t have a photo nor details. The account was stark naked, and this made us wonder what the members found interesting that they winked, favorited, or messaged us.

Profile Quality

Iwantblacks Profile
  • Reports claim that there are numerous bogus accounts
  • Photos are regulated
  • Easy to supply and edit information
  • Viewing full-sized photos and full-length videos are premium features

    Profiles at IWantBlacks may not be as packed. If completed and viewed as a paying member, however, you get more than enough information to form a general idea of what the user is like in person.

    A member’s profile contains five (5) essential sections:

    • Thumbnail

    Like a YouTube thumbnail that acts as an informative teaser, the upper portion of the profile will include a member’s primary photo, age, and location.

    This section will also feature three interaction buttons (Chat, Like, Add to Favorites). The option to block or report said user would also be included here.

    • Personal Info

    Located at the left side of the profile, details on orientation, hair color, ethnic origin, and body type will be placed here. If the member didn’t fill it out, you might ask them to add the information. 

    • Member Photos

    A member can upload as many photos as they want at IWantBlacks. For standard members, this section will be blurry and inaccessible.

    • Looking For

    They say it's easier to bond with someone who shares the same interest and “Looking For” seems to be the section to know just that. This premium feature will let you know if the member is up for relationships, dates, or hookups. 

    • Additional Info

    This part right here will list down a member’s answers to questions like their eye and hair color, physique, marital and parental status, and vices if any.

    A standard member can view most parts (except photos and the Looking for section), so they can still see if the member matches them well. However, since you can skip the profile building for later, most of the pages we’ve seen are empty save for the necessary details and some photos.

    App

    Iwantblacks Mobile
    • No mobile app available
    • Website can be accessed through mobile browsers
    • Mobile version uses the same colors and functions as the desktop
    • Easy to navigate

    IWantBlacks may not offer a free-to-download app, but it can be accessed via your mobile browsers.

    Aside from the website being mobile-responsive, it seems like the layout is more modern and neat when viewed through your mobile screens.

    The mobile version features the same color schemes and functionalities as its desktop counterpart. 

    It also has a simple arrangement that members of all ages won’t find hard to navigate. The main header is divided into five (5) icons for Search, Messages, Updates or Notifications, Like Gallery, and the user’s account page.

    If for some reason you prefer the web design, IWantBlacks lets you access it through your account page.

    Overall, the website may not have an app, but its mobile version is a pretty solid alternative for on-the-go members.

    Real Life Review

    “To be honest, I haven’t found a date from IWantBlacks yet. Although it’s easy to find a person to chat with, life happens and we sort of stop chatting after Day 2. Still waiting for a date, so fingers are tightly crossed.” - Jesse, 26

    Design and Usability

    IWantBlacks on desktop view sports a minimalist and clean layout. 

    White is the dominant color of the site with splashes of red and green for accents. Red is for alerts, notifications, call to action buttons while green signifies if payments and a member’s online status.

    The dating site’s main header features Search and Like Gallery tabs on its left side. On the right side are the upgrade button (for standard members), Messages, Updates, and your account avatar for easy tracking and customization.

    There may be some ads in some sections, but overall, the site is user-friendly. Even the members who are not as tech-savvy won’t have a hard time navigating and flirting at IWantBlacks.

    For female users, subscriptions come in three packages each with a strength of its own:

    • Chataholic turns you into a popular member by making sure your account tops messenger and search rankings. 
    • Extra Security entitles you to full HTTPS encryption, incognito browsing, and auto history cleaning.
    • Premium Dater is the subscription for you if you want the best of both worlds. Be popular and stay safe with this package.

    The males of IWantBlacks will get to enjoy monthly subscriptions that cover 1, 3, and 6 months. Unlike the female users who pay functions by day, males need a little commitment with the monthly deals. As such, IWantBlacks offers 3-Day Trial which will cost them $1.50 a day or $4.50 in total.

    In the event that you want to cancel your subscription to IWantBlacks, you may do so. Visit the “My Settings” to go to your “Billing History” where the option to “Deactivate Subscription” will be.
