About EbonyFlirt

It may not be one of the dating sites with high female to male ratio, but EbonyFlirt has managed to accumulate a decent following in its 18 years of operation. By providing niche dating services, it has successfully created an easy way for Black and non-Black singles to come together on a single dating platform.

Membership Base

EbonyFlirt.com doesn’t have a very large user base compared to more mainstream dating services, but this is to be expected since not every person is interested in having a Black partner. Although the majority of members on this website are Black, non-Black members are allowed to join as long as they’re interested in finding a Black partner.
People of all ages join this site, but the majority of users are looking for a long-term relationship, making EbonyFlirt a poor choice for singles who only want to hook up.

EbonyFlirt App

There is no mobile app for EbonyFlirt.com, but it’s only available over a mobile browser. Interestingly enough, there is an app with the same name that isn’t located in the Google Play Store, so you will have to download and install the APK yourself – do not do this, as we can’t confirm it is the same platform; most likely it’s a scam.
If you don’t trust downloading/installing a non-Play Store application onto your mobile device (as you should), the site can be accessed on both Android and iOS devices via a web browser. Doing so will bring up the mobile-optimized version of the service, which offers all of the same features as the desktop version.

Costs and Prices

Unlimited use of messaging on this site will require a premium membership, so it’s a good thing that the service offers multiple membership plans! They vary in length from a single day to three months, but (as is common with most dating websites) the shorter plans offer a poor value-for-money.
Plans Cost per month Total Cost
One Day N/A $0.99
One Week N/A $5.00
One Month $19.29 $19.29
Three-Month $11.70 $32.45

EbonyFlirt Special Features

Whereas some websites only allow members to send text-based messages, EbonyFlirt.com is a bit more flexible, allowing users to send pictures in addition to text. However, you can’t send videos via messaging, nor can you cam-chat with other members.

Safety

EbonyFlirt has a very low barrier to entry (requiring only an email account to create an account), which may lead you to the conclusion that this service is full of fake accounts. Fortunately, the site is actually very safe to use, thanks to one feature: Safe Mode! This unique mode allows you to control who can message you, limiting messages to only verified members, non-suspicious members, or allowing anyone to message you.

The Experience of EbonyFlirt

Sign Up Process

Sign Up
If you’ve ever joined a dating site before, the EbonyFlirt.com signup page will look very familiar. To join, you’ll only need to provide some basic information (gender, sexual orientation, age, location) and choose a password.
Once that’s done, click the “Join Now” button to create your account. Email verification isn’t required, but we highly recommend doing it if you don’t want to be prevented from messaging other members by “Safe Mode.” Uploading a photo isn’t required.

Profile Creation

Although uploading photos isn’t required, you’ll definitely want to do so if you plan on making any matches, as no one will message someone without any photos. Beyond uploading pictures, you can also update your status (which gives you the chance to showcase your personality!) and fill out the “Additional Info” section.
There are twelve different forms to fill out: eye color, tattoos, piercings, drink, smoke, income, education, weight, height, children, living, and religion. Of course, these aren’t mandatory, so you can pick and choose which ones you’d like to complete and which ones you’d like to leave blank. However, the more information you provide, the more likely it is you’ll find a match quickly here.

Searching and Matchmaking

Searching
There are a few different ways to connect with other members on EbonyFlirt. The most basic option is simply navigating to the home page, which will show you other users based on how far away from you they are.
You can also use the search feature, which has a small variety of filters you can use to niche down on the members shown. If you prefer a more traditional “Hot or Not” experience, the “Like Gallery” will show you other singles. Simply choose “X,” “♥,” or message them right away!

Contacting Other Members

Contacting Members
It’s not hard to talk to other people on EbonyFlirt.com. Each and every profile has a “Chat” button, so you simply need to click that button to send them a message. As mentioned above, the chat feature supports both text and picture messages, but sending videos is not a feature that’s available at this time at this platform.
For a less direct approach, you can also send other EbonyFlirt members a “Like.” If you don’t want to interact at all but might want to later, This site also allows you to create a “Favorites” list of attractive members to interact with later on.

Experts Conclusion

EbonyFlirt isn’t a site that will appeal to everyone, but for the singles who are interested in finding a Black partner, it works quite well! There aren’t any advanced features on this site, but we were happy to see they at least include picture messaging as an option.
The community seems quite active overall, the interface is self-explanatory, and free members even get five free chats per day, which is much better than many other sites. Overall, EbonyFlirt is a site worth trying if you’d like to find a Black partner.
