Dating is hard enough as it is, but it can be a lot tougher if you’re part of the LGBT community. Many popular dating apps and sites cater mostly to heterosexual users with only a small percentage of LGBT users with an even smaller portion being of a specific ethnicity.
Thankfully, there are a handful of dating apps that cater to both lesbians and black women. Here are a few of the best ones:
As the name of the site suggests, this site is exclusively for black lesbians and lesbians who are looking to date or hook up with black women. The site has been around for about 3 years, and it’s quite easy to use. When you want to narrow down your search, you can select your preferred gender, age range, whether or not a user has a photo, and whether or not a user is online now.
Sadly, BlackLesbianDate is not free. You can try it out for 3 days for $6.25. If you loved your experience, you can subscribe to the service for a month for $23.40.
Her is the world’s biggest dating app for lesbians and bisexual women. It has the same usage mechanism as Tinder, where you swipe right for people you like and left for people you’re not into. The great thing about Her is that you do more than just swipe based on looks alone. Profiles on Her can contain multiple text boxes, your gender preference, your relationship status, and your orientation. On top of that, your Her username is the one you use for either Facebook or Instagram. This helps to verify all the users on the site.
Like BlackLesbianDate, Her is not free. A one-month subscription costs $14.99, while a one-year subscription costs $89.99.
Pink Cupid is like Grindr for lesbians. For apps that have incredibly detailed profiles, Pink Cupid takes the cake. You can add very specific details about yourself and the potential matches you’re looking for – from pets to height to any type of body art. You can even put in your ethnicity while also specifying if you’re looking for someone of the same ethnicity. If you’re looking to date black lesbians or you’re a black lesbian looking for a date, Pink Cupid might be the app that will finally hook you up!
The great thing about OkCupid is that users can choose from 12 sexual orientations and more than 20 gender markers. It helps users get really specific with who they are and who they’re looking for. On top of that OkCupid also has a “percent match” algorithm that’s based on users’ answers about certain topics. These topics include a user’s preferences, beliefs (religious or otherwise), likes, and dislikes.
Most importantly, there’s a button on OkCupid that states “I don’t want to be seen by straight people.” This is a huge help to lesbians who don’t want to run into any guys they won’t be into.
Thanks to dating apps, finding a potential match for lesbians has become so much easier. Check out these apps and sites, and try your luck!
