Dating: Black People Meet
Wednesday, February 18, 2015
Ok, so it's really no big secret that I am single and have been for quite some time now....and while the single life is great at times sometimes it can also be not so great. We all at some point want companionship of a man or woman.
In January my boy Eric and I was having a discussion with some friends of ours about the "single life" and in that discussion online dating came up. I was telling them how one of my best friends met her husband online and that I have another good friend (my lil sister) who met her now fiancee online (with my help). I then suggested that he and I should create an account on Black People Meet for 30 days and rate our experience since I knew a few people close to me who had some luck with online dating. He agreed but never set his account. The nerve of him, lol. But I went ahead with what we discussed.
I wished I would have saved my money!!
I was not proactive enough on the site for $23.95-yes, I said $23.95! I did download the app for the dating site, but I hardly went on there and the times I did there was always someone who messaged me that did nothing for me. Either there was no pic or no description so those two thing along eliminated quite a few people and after a couple of times of that In lost all interest.
This paid site works best for someone who are actively looking for a relationship and would put in the time that it takes. Actually, it will take more than 30 days, but 30 days was all I was willing to give on the site.
So needless to say...I didn't get to go on one date and I couldn't wait until February 17 arrived so that I would be done with Black People Meet.
Have you ever tried online dating? If not, would you give it a try?
