There aren’t many black senior dating sites, so we’re hoping that this one has potential. As you’d expect from the name, the vast majority of users on SeniorBlackPeopleMeet are in their later years. There are users as young as 30 on the service, but most people are 45 or above. Surprisingly, women outnumber men on this site, making up 63% of the total user base. The site caters mainly to those looking for a serious relationship, not casual encounters.

SeniorBlackPeopleMeet Sign In
When you navigate to the SeniorBlackPeopleMeet homepage for the first time, you’ll see a large “Search Now” button. Clicking on this will begin the signup process, which only takes a couple of minutes. New users will be required to provide some basic information such as their age, location, sexuality, and email address. During signup, SeniorBlackPeopleMeet will prompt users to upload a photo multiple times, as including a profile picture will increase your profile’s visibility on the dating service.
Members & Profiles
Unlike many other dating services, the user profiles on SeniorBlackPeopleMeet actually provide a lot of information about its users. Not only that, but it appears that the majority of members actually take the time to complete their profiles (something often lacking on comparable services). SeniorBlackPeopleMeet profiles include a wide variety of information such as relationship expectations, astrological signs, religion, and level of education. These factors can be very helpful in determining if someone could be a viable match.
SeniorBlackPeopleMeet largely remains a site free of fake accounts and spammers. This is surprising, considering that no background checks are required, email verification isn’t required, there isn’t a “Safe Mode,” and photos aren’t monitored. However, the fact that you need premium membership to send messages definitely helps prevent fake accounts on the service. Like most other dating services, SeniorBlackPeopleMeet uses HTTPS encryption to keep your on-site interactions private.
Real Life Review on SeniorBlackPeopleMeet
I’ve never been actively using one for online dating services before that. I always thought that I can find something better, but this time I figured it was worth a shot, so I signed up for SeniorBlackPeopleMeet. I didn’t get the instant results, so many people claim, but I did meet Denise after using SeniorBlackPeopleMeet for a few months. That was two months ago; we’re happily dating now!
Costs and Prices
Thankfully, SeniorBlackPeopleMeet appears to realize that its target audience does not have a large budget for online dating services, so they’ve adjusted its pricing accordingly. SeniorBlackPeopleMeet offers one-month, three-month, and six-month plans for their site. The longer the plan you purchase, the less you pay per month! Plan prices begin at $16.99 (for one month) and go up to $39.83 (for six months).
Sadly, free services are not an area where SeniorBlackPeopleMeet shines. Joining SeniorBlackPeopleMeet is free, and you can browse through local members on the site with a free account. Free members can also add others users to their “Favorites” list and send them “Flirts,” but they will be unable to see if other members have “Favorited” or send them a “Flirt.” There aren’t any other contact options available for free accounts, so they’ll need to upgrade if they want to be able to send a message.
It’s a good thing that SeniorBlackPeopleMeet membership is so cheap because you’ll need to upgrade to a premium account if you want to take advantage of all that the site has to offer. For the price of membership, users here get unlimited messaging privileges, the ability to see who has sent them a “Flirt,” and the ability to see who has added them to their “Favorites” list.
Overall, SeniorBlackPeopleMeet is definitely a site we would recommend to Black senior singles. The layout of the site is simple, allowing even the least tech-savvy individuals to navigate the dating website with ease. Profiles are detailed, and (more importantly) members actually take the time to complete them. This not only provides a lot of information about a potential match but also shows that the singles on SeniorBlackPeopleMeet are active and truly invested in their online dating experience. The additional features (“Flirt” and “Favorite”) aren’t groundbreaking functions, but they’re an important part of any dating site, so we’re glad to see they’ve been included. While it is unfortunate that free functionality is so limited, the site more than makes up for this by offering prices that should be affordable to the vast majority of Black senior singles. We would definitely recommend that any Black senior single who’s had trouble finding love on alternative dating services give SeniorBlackPeopleMeet a try. Who knows—you might just find your soulmate!
Can I contact other members on SeniorBlackPeopleMeet for free?
Yes and no. You can reach out to other members by “Favoriting” them or sending them a “Flirt”, but you’ll be unable to see if they’ve “Favorited” you or sent you a “Flirt” back. Personal messaging is a premium feature that free users don’t have access to.
How do I report a suspicious account on SeniorBlackPeopleMeet?
Reporting a member is possible, but the feature is likely to be overlooked by most users. To report someone, you must navigate to the bottom of their profile, where you will see a small triangle with a “!” in the middle. Click on this to report them.
Can I block members on SeniorBlackPeopleMeet?
Like reporting, the blocking feature is available but easy to overlook. After navigating to the same spot you did to report someone, look right. There, you will see a small symbol that allows you to block a member from contacting you.
