Are Black Singles?
Black singles are African American men and women who are not dating, and are unmarried. These individuals are typically interested in finding someone like themselves for a casual or serious relationship. Many people choose to remain single, and casually date. However, others who are single are anxious to get married.
Are There So Many Black Singles Services Online?
While the dating business in general is very profitable, the online dating business is dangerously lucrative. Most single people will pay up to $25 a month to have their profile and photo listed on a web site, so that others can find them. Multiply this by thousands of African American singles, and you have a million dollar business. Most of the black singles web sites are owned by big companies that have several different web sites targeting other ethnic groups. Very few are black-owned.
Most Black web sites, such as BlackNews.com, BlackPlanet.com, and BlackVoices.com have dating portals built into their platforms. This is called co-branding so that the user feels that the singles platform is affiliated with the web site that he or she is visiting. Many times though, the users are just joining a database of singles represented by through a network of other web sites.
This market in particular has grown extremely fast within the past 5 years for several reasons. One reason is that African Americans have been the fastest growing group online. Secondly, studies reveal that when online they spend most of their time on entertainment-related web sites. Thirdly, African-Americans have always been a more socially active group of people - and have long been big and innovative influencers for music, romance, fashion, and fun. Therefore, they have fueled and inspired the launch of black dating web sites.
It True That There Are More Black Singles Than In
Any Other Race?
This is very possible. According to the U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services, Black males and females are more likely to be unmarried than Whites, Hispanics, or American Indian/Alaskan Natives. That same report concludes that Black individuals are far more likely than Whites and Hispanics to be divorced. If this is true, this does justify why so many Black singles web sites are popular.
