InterracialSingles.net attempts something different and inspired: to match users who want to meet people from different cultures and ethnicities in a secure, friendly and honest environment. The site is devoted to creating a happy community of users, demonstrated by its devotion to social interaction in organising various events and by providing so many advanced features to users with free, standard subscriptions. There is truly a sense that the site is interested in bringing people closer together, allowing users from all over the world to communicate safely and freely.
The advantages of InterracialSingles.net don't stop there, however. Its search facilities are also top notch, allowing you to search for members according to a wide variety of criteria. Its rainbow of search criteria means that even highly selective people will be able to find someone who takes their interest. Profile building is similarly in-depth, even allowing you to stress how important certain traits are in a potential partner. For example, a user might feel that religion is very important, so they can set this preference using a sliding toolbar (which ranges from unimportant to extremely important). The advanced search functions take this in to account when delving through the mass of profiles to select someone with a similar belief.
The site has an excellent help service which ranges from a customer call line for one-to-one help, to a community board where general questions can be asked and answered. This, again, really builds a sense of togetherness between members, who can reply honestly and without fear of recrimination. The FAQ, though somewhat short, does provide useful information and contact details if more help is needed.
The price of joining InterracialSingles.net is definitely worth a mention. The free subscription offers its users many options including the advanced search facility and profile editing capability. Unlike some other interracial dating sites however, your free membership to InterracialSingles.net is by no means expensive to upgrade. Even the most expensive subscription is reasonably priced, where the equivalent cost per month of your subscription decreases with increasing subscription length. At less than $100 for the year, the price is not worth quibbling over. The added extras you gain from upgrading your subscription to a paid, premium membership are impressive. These added features (particularly the instant chat) really do enhance your experience of the site, allowing you to engage with users much more efficiently. Another great feature of premium membership is the ability to spotlight your profile and draw users' attention by having your face adorn the home page. Even once this is taken down (it can't be there forever!) your profile will be in the stand-out profiles section of the site, assuring that your efforts don't go unrewarded. In short, the basic features of free membership are better than most other interracial dating sites, but the upgrade to premium-level, paid membership really allows you to get noticed and get dating!
It's not all roses, though. This site is primarily marketed for an American audience so if you find yourself in a small French village you are unlikely to find many matches. That said, if you are in America or live elsewhere and don't mind talking to interesting people from a distance for a while, this isn't really an issue.
The homepage has an option to keep you logged in, which we found particularly useful because if you like to check for updates regularly you don't have to keep logging-in every time. This also has an added plus because the homepage clearly displays all your activity, including messages received and sent, how many times your profile has been viewed and any gifts or cards you might have received. This attention to detail and simplicity of use is typical of Interracial Singles, who have obviously consulted excellent web designers and asked for useful feedback from their users. Indeed their dedication to customer service is again apparent through this eye for detail.
Members can interact and chat to each other in a surprising variety of ways, ranging from personal emails or chats, to more public forums. There is a 'question of the week' which gets some lively debate and can really open up some useful ideas on dating and 'the dating scene'. It might range from "What do women like in a guy" to, "What's the best kind of event for a first, second or third date?" This could really be a very useful and low-anxiety way of sharing information and opinions with other singles. There's also no chance of missing the action because if you receive any messages or interest from another user then you can receive automatic emails telling you so. Interracial Singles also provides a simple way of checking up on friends and favourite users or deleting people you might not want further contact with.
The success stories on InterracialSingles.net can be inspiring to read and can open your eyes to the possibilities that spring from joining the site. This section is proof of the effectiveness of the site and the dedication of its staff and users. The ease of use and genuine feel of InterracialSingles.net is really what sets it aside from the other interracial dating sites on the internet. Success in dating is out there and waiting, and in our opinion InterracialSingles.net is one of the best ways to get your foot in the dating door and start a new, exciting dating life. Good luck!
