If you’re reading this, you're probably black, single and wondering if you should try signing up for a black dating app. Here are 5 really good reasons why you should.
1. YOU'RE PROUD OF YOUR ROOTS
Have you ever tried to tell Tinder or Hinge that you would like to match with someone who shares your cultural identity? Africlick App respects that black dating is far more complex than just “black”. We know you’re interested in where your potential bae is originally from.
“I want to preserve a sense of culture; my ideal choice of man would be a British-born-and-raised Ghanaian like me, because I think we would have much more in common.” Wendi Bekoe, a Londoner of Ghanaian heritage
Whether it’s it’s Naija 🇳🇬, Congo 🇨🇩, Jamaica 🇯🇲 or Ghana 🇬🇭, we got you! Africlick App lets you match by your country of origin so you can find someone that both you and your parents will love!
2. YOU’RE OVER GOING CLUBBING
Picture the scene, you’re in the club, the cutie you’ve been eyeing up has bought you a drink, the lights are low, Riri’s Work Work Work is playing and you’re dancing s l o w l y. The conversation is great and you exchange numbers. Now you just sit back, relax and wait for them to text 🥰.
Ok, REALITY CHECK: after planning all week in the group chat, Shanice drops out cus it’s her time of month 🩸 and Funke cancels because funds are low. Although you act disappointed you’re secretly relieved because it’s cold outside, you’ve overspent on Ubers and honestly, your bed is really comfortable.
Socialising is a great way to meet black singles but the cost of ubers 🚖, drinks 🍸, new outfits 👗 and bundles 👩🏿 add up! We need other options and that’s where black dating apps come in because you can date from home at your convenience. Oh and did we mention it’s free? In comparison to the cost of nights out, dating apps are a cost effective way to meet new people.
3. YOUR'E KINDA PICKY ABOUT WHO YOU DATE
We get it, you’re educated, well-travelled and hustling hard to live your best life. Of course, you’re picky about who you want to let into your life! But maybe your auntie has cautioned you to be less picky or you’ll end up alone. Or worse still, they tried to set you up with that random person from church and they keep bugging you updates 👀.
At Africlick we believe you should have high standards. You deserve a happy, passionate and fulfilling relationship. Dating apps let you be selective about who you date. We all have dealbreakers like having a degree, not smoking and even which African country you’re originally from. Well, Africlick dating app lets you filter out your dealbreakers, to zoom in on your perfect person.
4. YOU HAVE #WEDDINGGOALS
Close your eyes and imagine your wedding day, your outfit, the decorations & all of your friends in attendance. 🎈🥂. What about the speeches? That's when the wedding guests get to hear your “how we met” story. You probably thought you would meet your partner through friends.
But seriously, when’s the last time your BFF hit you up and said “I really want to hook you up with [insert name] , ya’ll would be perfect together?” Like it or not, technology is changing how we date.

Basically, if you want to maximise your chances of finding your happily ever after, then alongside socialising in real life, you should also be on dating apps.
5. RELIGION IS IMPORTANT TO YOU
Whether you answer to God, Allah or Sango, it’s important that you date someone with shared values. Susan Vogt, a Christian marriage counsellor stressed that “if one spouse values faith and the other resents religion, conflict is inevitable”.
So, if religion is important to you, dating apps are a great way to cut out the noise and focus on meeting someone who shares your values🕌✝️
