BLK - Dating for Black singles for Negative User Reviews

Disabled meI never write reviews but this app was making me happy and it decided to give up on me. I was away from the app a couple days cause I had a lot going on in my life after a while I decided to come back but I was disabled when I contact their customer service it’s says I’ve been terminated because of their members of community. Like I wanted to know why cause I am not a disrespectful person to be rude to others not to talk of people I do not know on dating apps. My bestie introduced me to this app and I’m very disappointed..Version: 3.19.0

App is made for black folx but...Don't get me wrong, I enjoy blk for the most part. What attracted me the most to this dating app was the fact that it was created as a space for black singles to meet and connect with other black singles. unfortunately, that particular aspect of the app has not been enforced hard enough. I seem to find more and more non-black folks on the app because "they like what they like" (mind you, there is a large black presence on other apps such as tinder, bumble, and POF, but many of us are ignored in those spaces. Hence why blk is created for us specifically.) trust me, I am not against interracial dating at all. I simply just want a space that is made for us, and is kept specifically for us. I think the addition of verification could help in the long run, but seeing how they just updated their distance filters, that may be too far-fetched to think about right now. Overall, a good app. But definitely not an all black space..Version: 2.11.0

Sign upHow do u sign up?!!!.Version: 3.15.0

It could use some improvementsI want to start off with my absolutely love the fact that this app exists. I recently moved to a majority white area and dating hasn’t been the easiest for me. This app is nice but compared to the other dating apps, it’s a little lackluster. Other dating apps give you the choice to be specific with what you’re looking for, but this app doesn’t. The people on this app aren’t really engaged in it, majority of the people do not put anything in their bios. Most of them don’t even bother to fill out all of the personal, appearance, and habits tabs. I think this app should have verification because I’ve seen way too many people on the app not use their own photos. If you don’t pay for elite on the app, you will most likely not have a fun experience. I had previously use this app and at the time I paid for elite membership, and I absolutely loved my experience on the app. Then I re-downloaded it and now I have the standard version and I’ve been on here for almost 2 weeks and I’ve only matched with like 6 people but it says I have +99 likes. They don’t really put the people who have liked you in your swipes. I love the fact that this app exists but I’m growing frustrated with it more and more because why do I have to pay to have a nice experience on your app???.Version: 2.22.0

Mediocre is the Word of the DayThis app is mediocre at best. While the layout of the app is okay, there are some things that would really improve it. For example, one small thing is having the text wrap around when someone writes their education and occupation in, so you can see the full text they’ve written. Another small thing is making the “About Me” section you can write in the same as the one that gets presented to potential matches. The layout of the words isn’t consistent when switching between editing the profile and simply viewing the profile. It’d also be nice to add the feature of the “enter button” or ability to skip a line when writing an “about me”. Within the settings, there needs to be a way to turn off all notifications besides messages. Lastly, you should have the option to set your location to one place. Not everyone is staying where they are in the current moment and sometimes want to meet someone close to where they live instead of where they currently are. A person’s city should be shown, not just the miles because you don’t know which direction the person might live in. If it’s a matter of privacy, maybe hide the person’s name until after they match, or have each person’s distance in relation to major cities instead. As a bonus, you could also consider asking prompt questions..Version: 2.0.4

Pretty awful.I will attempt to update if my experience changes; however, to this point, my experience has been pretty awful. It’s the same thing over and over. Hey, you’re so pretty - immediate red flag, meet me on Google hangouts, send your number, send a picture, all digital ways to steal info, I’m so lonely 800 miles from you or maybe 200, they switch it up. Point being, they are never real. They never use articles in their sentences. Most of them know nothing about basic Black culture. Like I mention things like the Isley Brothers or The Proud Family and they say crazy things like, yes, we have to hang in there proud and strong together. Those are icons and they have never heard of them. It’s Catfish Haven. Pretty disgusting, they really think we’re all desperate, just tell us we’re pretty and we’re supposed to fall all over ourselves for a little male attention. Dis-gusting and stupid. At least they must think we are. It’s super offensive. Both to the beautiful chocolate females they try to deceive and the beautiful chocolate men whose profiles they are stealing. It’s a little entertaining, so I won’t completely give it a one. If they could figure out a way to get rid of the catfish free for all, it would have great potential. Right now, nah..Version: 3.6.0

Delete my accountHow do I delete my account? Because it keeps on showing people from 250 miles away..Version: 4.3.0

Terminated accountI’ve been in this app before and deleted it. I just recently download it back and not even 30 minutes into setting up my account.. my account was terminated. I had no idea why, I didn’t even have a chance to converse with it match with anyone, I have absolutely no idea why my account was terminated so I sent an email. And just like other complaints, I can’t know the reason why my account was terminated due to terms and regulations. So here I am, I haven’t broken not one rule and not even 30 minutes u to recreating my account that I once had before I was locked out and banned from making any other accounts. Even now I don’t know why I could have gotten terminated from BLK and it’s very frustrating because I literally did nothing wrong and now I’m being punished for something and I don’t even know the reason why. I feel like the least they can do is tell me whether or not it was because I was reported and if it was then it was because of a bitter ex that saw me on there. Nonetheless, I didn’t break any rules, yet, I cannot access my account on the app. My experience with this app is 0/10.Version: 5.2.0

Most real, direct overview of this…..brilliantlyThis is BLK, in a nutshell. After months of experiencing the same trends and themes….this all is WILDLY overwhelmed with FAKE accounts. BLK even sends you routine notifications each day (usually 10am-10:20am for me) to make you think there’s activity or interest. It’s just another phantom “like” to entice you to dole out cash to this nonsense for an “advantage” of cutting through the nonsense. You won’t. 85% of what you’re seeing is FAKE! Ive seen it first hand, someone got mad I called them out so on this so they created a fake profile on BLK with my images !!!!! 🤣🤣🤣 The off chance you find a real profile in that remaining 15%…… it’s most likely a web cam girl or some solicitor promoting their monetized social media platform to gain followers, or they are trying to direct you to some nonsense to scam. In other words, STRICTLY a promotional device and no interest in social or romantic interest , getting to meet someone in real life with common interest locally..Version: 3.15.0

Needs workThe app needs to do a better job at marketing because it’s been out for too long to not have anyone know about it. And they keep responding with that tired ssa “we’re showing you people 500 miles away because you’ve ran out of people closer to you” yeah no sht😒 it’s cool to have the option but we’re not looking for penpals.Version: 4.13.1

A dating app is supposed to be made to be deletedFirst I want to say I never leave reviews on anything, but i don’t know if this is a new dating app and they just don’t know how to be successful yet… or if it’s just another way to scam people out they money… Black ppl need love… both men and women. And ofc the only black dating app is absolute trash… The cons- this app prompts you to upgrade to premium membership approx 3-6 times a day while you are using the app. The only people you can match with are the people that YOU like. For All the people that show interest in you, you can’t see them unless you pay for the premium membership… isn’t the point of a dating app to meet people that have Interest in you?? Why would you prevent us from knowing who they are?? I understand not giving access to see everyone who showed interest in you at one time without a membership but AT LEAST load 1 person every 12 hours or something… to give some type of hope, or motive to get out there. And if they like u and you had liked them. They have to message you first in order for you to be aware they are interested …. What if they don’t messsge first?? Now you’ll never know they liked you because you don’t have access to your likes… I’m sorry but this app is so pointless… the success rate hass to be low 60$ a month 😭 who is paying that for a dating app…Come on…. I personally think whoever made this app did not want black ppl finding love….Version: 4.0.0

BannedAnother app that is not customer service friendly. I created an account yesterday and was banned before I could do anything at all when I reached out to them they said they couldn’t tell me why I was banned and to read the terms and conditions which I DID and still don’t know why I was banned. It’s very frustrating because they refused to help out or provide a reason..Version: 4.4.0

Needs to go into detail on dating preference/sexual orientationI’ve only used the app all of two weeks. Not very many quality selections on here from my opinion. App can be seen as the black tinder. Plenty of people leave the profile section or complain about dating. What’s really annoying is I have a preference I am looking for. The app was sending men my way which is fine, but these men were also looking for men. I went into my settings just to make sure they were correct. There’s an option to change this but it’s only available if you update your gender which is crazy. So there’s women and man. And then another button that takes you to a whole list for selection you may identify with. Man or women is also in this list and once you make your selection you can select to decide what who your profile will be shown to. This selection disappears once you select man or women from the man list. It’s too complicated. Plenty of other dating apps have been able to successfully set these options without the complexity. Also the app is hyper sensitive. Many times I’ve accidentally swiped right when trying to just look at the pictures or profile. Just not a good app at all..Version: 3.7.0

Only one issueThe range is all messed up all it shows is people 150miles or more and when it down show someone near you it’s like for one profile then back to 200 250 350 miles away lol. Fix that and this app would be better then tinder.Version: 3.19.0

FraudI joined this site and after receiving a lot of likes I decided to pay for my subscription. I was able to communicate with several men who seemed to be promising then the next day my account was disabled . I sent an email asking why it was disabled and after several weeks I received a response that they had to refer my account to someone else to review . I then received an email today stating that my account will remain disabled because they have to do what’s good for the community when asked to explain what they meant . They sent me another email saying they could not disclose that information. Fraud ,scam this site is about taking your money only and then disabling your account . Beware of any reviews that speaks favorable of the site . I have since deleted the app off of my phone because I don’t trust this site I don’t want them having any of my personal information..Version: 2.0.9

WackI’ve matched with couples of black ladies on this app but most of them are more likely interested in giving out their IG and once on IG they stop replying to your messages.Version: 5.3.0

Not what it’s cut out to beI was on this app and subscribed to be an Elite member. It has some good perks but when it comes to the distance there is an issue where you cannot select a distance preference. They have one out there. But isn’t working. Which isn’t helpful and it makes it not enjoyable when you know you don’t want to be chatting with someone that is more then 800 miles. They said that feature will be fixed sometime this year. But nothing concrete. So I mention I should get a refund fo that reason. No response on that matter. But responded less then five minutes concerning the distance feature. The app developer responded to my first initial complaint. They responded that it starts off with the members closer to you and goes up to 1200 miles. Which is true! However with that being said. You still can’t set your distance nor can you go back to an area you would like to be. Which makes the app not excited when you run out of choices for that day, which are now set. The app isn’t very useful for personal preference. Which should be available as I have seen and used on other sites..Version: 2.0.12

Only seeing people MILES awayI set up all my preferences, just for the app to show all the opposite. Why I am only seeing people that live 500miles away from me when i set up my preferences to the minimum?? Every other preferences I set is not shown as well. This app need hella improvements.Version: 4.3.0

Terrible locationNeeds to create option to select location range. This is the only dating app I know that doesn’t have this feature..Version: 2.0.7

Experience is what I expect from these types of appsApp is cool. Could use some overall performance improvements. It randomly logs me out at times but killing the app and reopening it usually works fine. Fake profiles are definitely an issue - seems like there’s should be a better verification process. Also, no matter what you set your preferred distance to, it still shows people outside of the set parameter. Randomly received a “BLK fact” notification , specifically one disrespecting Nicki Minaj - there was really no reason to notify us that President Obama had more Grammy awards than her (were we supposed to laugh?), especially since she still can out rap a number of artists with Grammies. More useful facts could have been found, especially during black history month - example: Eric Holder (ironically President Obama’s Attorney General) was the first African American told hold the position of US Attorney General. App has a lot bugs to fix before we discuss Nicki Minaj or Grammies..Version: 2.5.0

Can’t even download?Even with payment method set in place, app still refuses to download..Version: 4.3.0

TrashGot banned for no reason’s. Tried signing up, but after I did I got bad immediately..Version: 4.13.0

Has potentialIt’s okay for what it is, but it needs a lot of improvement. The basic functions need to be fixed first and foremost. Why am I being shown to people outside of my preferences? If I don’t want to see people a 100 miles away that in turn means I don’t want them to see me either. I’d get a notification that someone liked me only for them to be 50+ miles out of my distance range. This literally happened so many times. I also decided to buy a week of the paid subscription and I don’t think it’s worth it. The app practically breaks every time I try to see my likes. I’ll try to view a profile and it won’t load properly. It’ll show up as a stretched out white screen. Then I have to click it like 5 times to get it to display. Or I’ll be scrolling through my likes and it just stops showing profiles (when I have hundreds more). If you’re going to charge 16+ a week then please make sure it works lol..Version: 4.14.0

Terrible app and trash customer serviceMy account constantly gets deleted for zero reason they never give me any form of explanation other than we reviewed your account and it was terminated. I do nothing to violate any terms no provocative pictures and I don’t give a ported because I don’t see any off-the-wall things to any of my matches yet they allow obviously fake accounts with literal nudes as their profile pictures and every time I was able to make a new account those same accounts will still remain up there yet. Mine is deleted and I no longer can sign up again. The app is a joke. Also, they always tell you the same as that thing someone will be in contact with you in 24 to 48 hours. You might as well get comfortable because they definitely mean 2-6 days and by then you’ve done probably forgot that you even emailed them because I always get a response to my email weird times like six in the morning after days of waiting the app has no integrity and it’s clear they literally do not care about their own creation if that’s the case, you need to delete the entire thing or make it right with the people who were suspended for no valid reason other than violating your terms and not giving a reason as to how.Version: 3.19.0

Still needs work. Specifically for user profiles.I’m glad they updated the app recently. Profiles are a little better. I just wish it wouldn’t default to showing someone 250 miles away. I’d rather the app just say “you’re out of matches in your range”. There are also a lot of repeating profiles. If i say no then I shouldn’t keep seeing the same profile cycle back every few days. I have to outright block people to keep them from showing up again. Not only that but there are a lot of no picture profiles. People using memes or something that’s not them. Verification process needs to be overhauled. I wouldn’t mind paying for a month or so to see all my matches but I can’t justify seeing anything else if the other person has no real picture of themselves. That’s a waste to me and not worth the risk. Also the notification setting need to be worked over. I only want to be pinged when I have a match. Not everything else. It’s better but still a ways to go..Version: 2.20.0

Can't delete accountI can't this delete my account on this app. It won't let me and it's like it's trying to force me to buy another subscription and the customer support is not helpful at all..Version: 4.13.1

BewareBlk is a ok app. There are a ton of fake profiles with just a single picture and nothing else (mostly white women... go figure, idk and when I click to try and get a response to see if they’re a real person, I get no reply. But they like your profile just to try to come off as an actual person), much like their affiliates/sister apps Tinder OkCupid Match (all the same company) etc. I don’t know what happened but in the middle of my subscription out of the blue with no mention of why my account gets terminated. No email, no message in the app nothing as to why. I do the grownup business thing and email them instead to see why. The person emails me back saying they will send for a review and get back to me in 48hrs. Fast forward to today and they just send me an email with a link to their Terms of Service. No answer, no reason just their ToS. They will find a reason to just take your money and ban you, I’ve spoken with a couple of coworkers that’ve said the same thing, they paid for their subscription and then they were banned a few weeks later. I would not recommend this app or anything affiliated to it’s owner MatchGroup apps or services. These people are not black and will just take your money..Version: 3.9.1

What the devs doing?What the devs doing? cause this app is super buggy, get 1-3 ppl in proximity then everyone else 250 miles+ up to 400miles away, ridiculous, don’t keep showing me ppl out of my range AND not in my preference as well. Also i cannot listen to music while on the app, it just randomly stops. I’m tired of seeing people who aren’t BLK! especially since it is not in my preference choices of what is offered, do better, this not tinder. I like the idea/concept overall of course because of melanin but put more effort & time into it developers, it’s been multiple years and same recurring issues or new ones, have some decency and respect for what you created so it’s not just another dating app that people sing up on & forget. Stand up & Stand out. Flex up & Fix up..Version: 4.15.0

Terrible UXGave this app a try to get more black folks. Your UX is so bad. There’s literally no point of filters if you’re showing me people 800 miles away. I’d rather you say there are no people in my location. And I think you deliberately don’t let people swipe on matches naturally. It doesn’t make sense that after swiping over 400 people I don’t even get a match lol. Hinge is definitely better..Version: 5.2.0

After I got charged they blocked my accountIf I could rate this app a 0 I would. Like I said, once they charge me my account got block for no reason at all. I wouldn’t recommend this app to anyone, their support team doesn’t respond; I guess it’s just a money scam. STAY AWAY.Version: 4.4.0

Not different than any other dating appUnless you’re good looking then you stand a chance. The better looking the man the more arrogant they seem to be they literally use this app to stroke their ego. How do have a profile filled with thirst trap pictures but no bio just so you can get like??It seem to be the same on the women sides to so I was told. Then they have the chance to go live which basically become only fans kinda situation. Lots of married men who are looking for a side piece. Overall it really is not that different then most dating apps..Version: 4.3.0

Just badPreferences are ignored, tons of fake accounts, you can set your location to be within 30 miles but they’re showing you people that 300 miles away, it’s a very expensive app (most common apps nowadays are very cheaper) you can pay a Netflix bill, PSN account bill, prime video bill and Disney+ bill in ONE of Black’s monthly subscription packages. THAT IS RIDICULOUS FOR SUCH A BAD APP -1 / 5 rating.Version: 4.13.1

Bamboozlement at its best! lol.O.k. Listen, So, I downloaded this app out of curiosity... my home girl told me she was having “immense” success on the app. So, me trusting my girl.. #DOWNLOADED. The excitement was real 80likes in 20min. So I’m all pumped up #Yasss until i realized i can’t see who they are. The elite membership package pops up i ignored. Next day 100likes, at this point i can’t take it anymore besides, it’s just 20$ right? #WRONG. When my eyes finally saw the matches smh... lol. #FixitJesus, Brah... how sway?! Lol. Either these dudes aren’t real, or it’s #Bamboozlement at it’s best! The dudes were 100+ miles away, they weren’t in my age specifications, and the few i did manage to swipe right on never engaged in conversation or they couldn’t formulate a sentence to save their life. A waste. As a young black professional i was hoping for a better experience, other professionals, completed bio sections, people who i can actually meet. Honey, this app needs some help! Lastly i can’t cancel my subscription... apparently in my excitement i paid for 3months! Sis/brah don’t waste your time. Lol. They out here pulling stunts and shows, selling pipe dreams with no pipe... smh! God ain’t pleased 🤣.Version: 2.0.14

Search Function Needs to Be ImprovedWhat’s the point in asking for my dating preferences if the app is just going to ignore them anyways? And mind you, I’m not asking for anything too obscure, so I’m not sure why my search results so often have people listed who fall outside my preferences. Also, what other dating app limits paid members to using only 3 preferences/filters at a time in their searches? 🤷🏾‍♀️ C’mon Match Group! Bring the same search functionality that you have on your Match app to this app!.Version: 4.12.1

DistanceSo are you guys really not planning on fixing the distance thing? All I get are people 150 miles.Version: 4.15.0

Decent app- not worth paying for thoughI love the idea of getting to see a great pool of black man and supporting this business but it needs some serious upgrades. As a user who paid for elite access I feel there show be more “elite” or even “premium” features. I paid for 3 months and only get 1 boost a month? Plus, the app must not recognize the men I’ve swiped left on because they keep returning to my feed or in my liked profile section. Also, if you put limitations such as distance and age on your settings others outside of those settings should not be able to see your page! It’s literally a waste of time trying to filter through. You think there would be an algorithm or potential update but no. In addition, it seems like no effort is being made to fix the glitches or bugs or make the app more user friendly. With that being said, premium/elite is starting to sound more scammish to me, convenient to know who likes you already but that’s it. Decent app but not worth your money..Version: 2.0.9

The Good & The BadI will start with the negative. If you have had your account for a while and pay for additional features BLK will delete your account claiming that your profile contained “inappropriate profile content,” and will use a clause claiming that “Due to our privacy practices, we cannot disclose specifics about your own profile.” For those who use the app appropriately be advised is done to eliminate profiles that pay a lower fee for extra features so when you return you will pay a higher fee ($10 more) for the same additional features. Moreover, from a man’s perspective there are a lot of quality attractive women to possibly meet locally and further away. Just beware of the fake scammer profiles. If there is no bio, a Snapchat mentioned in the bio, or the pictures are screen shots from other social media profiles, or the pictures are blurry and look outdated I strongly advise skipping them..Version: 4.14.0

No range featureApp is nice but let us allow our miles range, cus we are definitely not gonna meet the person that’s 300 miles away and add a range feature.Version: 3.19.0

Disabled account after 1 day of being on the appI gave this app 2 stars based on customer service alone. After having tons of matches I logged in that night and my account was disabled. It didn’t give a reason why. I didn’t have any thing inappropriate on my profile ,any social media information or saying anything inappropriate. I’ve connected with some really nice people but I’d never know them due to my account being disabled. I’ve reached out to customer service 4 times with no response. And the one that did respond stated “ Good morning! Thanks for contacting BLK. I understand that your account has been disabled. I'd be happy to check what happened. I would love to help you with your account and give you an answer to your question, but unfortunately, I'm unable to assist you, so I have sent this matter to the appropriate department and someone should respond to you via email within 48 hours. I appreciate your patience and understanding as this matter is being further investigated, and I apologize for the inconvenience. Warm regards,Customer Care Support” When my account was disabled it said click here to contact customer service . If this is the wrong department why have it on the website to contact. Either why I have not been contacted with the 48 hour time frame if at all ..Version: 3.8.0

It was great until…I randomly tried to log in and found out my account was randomly disabled. I don’t do anything that would get me kicked off. Very disappointed.Version: 3.20.0

Terrible customer service and account terminated with no explanation.My account was terminated 3weeks after me joining. I did not do anything inappropriate nor did I violate any terms or conditions. I reached out to customer service for an explanation of the alleged accusations and their response was they can’t tell me anything about my account due to privacy reasons which is absurd and makes no sense, not feasible at all. Also took about a month to get a response or email back. I requested a supervisor I did not get one and my dilemma is still unresolved. I know for a fact I didn’t do anything out of line but if u are terminating a account you owe the user an explanation and reason of action. Terrible customer service. Can’t even recommend this site. I can recommend POF Update Developer responded and told me to email them at appreviewsblk and acted like they wanted to help so I emailed the A MONTH AGO with screenshots from blk terrible customer service and responses AND THE DEVELOPER DIDNT EVEN REPLY OR HELP. Not one email from them. Their reply to my review to help was a front. My account was deleted for absolutely no reason possibly a glitch idk and blk won’t tell me why my account was deleted or not accessible. (tinder bumble pof and hinge is better than this crap. ).Version: 2.1.3

Worst app ever!Don’t try this app if you know what’s good for you. I deleted this app months ago and now that I want it back, it’s a problem. I tried to make a new account and it kept on saying, “Oops, that didn’t go as planned. Please try again later.” I did that countless of times to only just receive that same message. I had to email and call the company (mind you, it takes a whole day or two just for them to get back to you) only just for them to say they terminated my account. I have no idea as to why they did that. One said I went against their privacy policy guidelines but I did nothing wrong. My pictures were appropriate and I stated in my bio that all I’m looking for is a vibe, friend, or even a relationship and don’t try to talk to me if you’re a catfish. That is it. You know how some dating apps would warn you that you can’t say certain things? This app won’t warn you in any kind of something like that. You wouldn’t know if you did anything wrong unless you actually read their guidelines beforehand. This app should be deleted. It’s a waste of time, a big joke..Version: 2.12.0

Ridiculous Customer ServiceImmediately after PROPERLY setting this up, I started getting hundreds of men way outside the age ranges I set (20+ years outside of the range I requested). I immediately requested a refund VIA CUSTOMER SERVICE EMAIL and never received a robotic response as if the email wasn’t read by a human. I sent another email, again requesting a full refund. I should have followed up on it but months later I noticed the charges were still happening and immediately tried to resolve the issue with Apple but they told me it was “too late” for them to help me (despite me having the email proof that I requested a refund with BLK customer service)many months prior. They told me to contact the “developer” and that has proven to be of no help as well. I am now left to try to dispute the charges with my bank. What a hassle! Someone from the developer needs to issue my refund for all charges. On a side note, I should have also educated myself because I could have initially just requested the refund through Apple. This should not have prevented me from getting my refund through customer service though..Version: 3.13.0

DistanceYou have an option of selecting the distance but the distance is still ignored, i’m in canada and i’d be getting people in america. you should have an option where you only want people near your range and if they ran out of options and you should be given an option to look outside the range u want. otherwise it’s a good app.Version: 4.0.0

It’s Ok but Could Def Be BetterI like the app dynamic I do there are some Kinks tho, I wonder could u guys come up with like a check mark to verify authenticity of it being the person in the pictures like on Badoo. Second bro or sis whoever is behind this brilliant apps creation I’ve been waiting for this as a dating black man searching for his own people having said that there is a lot of white people and Hispanic ppl on there. I mean it doesn’t even ask u ur race cuz it assumes everyone on there is black but listen THEY ARENT. Profiles is like “I’m not black but I love black men” I’m like “yea, WE KNOW”, I suppose u can’t do anything about that but is there a way like or can we be premium members and have a search for “strictly black” option that would help a lot? It kinda kills the vibe for the whole dynamic of the app for it to be geared to Blacks looking for blacks and it a lot more than blacks on there. Finally the distance it says u can filter ur distance and when u do in my case 20 miles it’ll still show me ppl 40miles away, can we work on this please? Love the app tho.Version: 2.1.2

Shutdown my account for unknown reasonsSigned up and seen the app looked nice even signed up for the 14 day trial which I paid for and After 4 days my account was closed and couldn’t use the app. I didn’t message anyone. ,Didn’t report anyone page or anything for that matter. Now I did take my photo down within those 4 days. Just wanted to browse through the app for minute. Reached out to customer service and they got back to me after 2-3 days. But the representative through the email couldn’t tell me why it was closed or why I couldn’t log in. And The money which I paid for the 14 day trial wasn’t refunded. So I can’t use the app and my hard earned money was never refunded. Now the app has a lot of potential but just the fact that they can shut your account down without any warning or give any reason why a quick pass. What would have happened if I signed up for 6 months ....and my account was shut down. I would have been out of $100 dollars or whatever it is for 6 months. If u got money to burn or like Russian roulette or wanna roll the dice ...go right ahead. Make it quick ...I only lasted about 4 days👌🏾.Version: 1.9.9

150 miles away???I like the idea, but I guess you can’t use it in Vancouver Canada. Everybody was 100 miles away?? The app also reads like it was created by white people trying to sound like black people. I bet they have a maximum of two black people in the whole company. Cringe!!!.Version: 4.16.0

Hear me out..First I have NEVER turned on my notifications but I keep getting notifications without sound. Every time I go into the app the first this I see is something asking me to turn on my notifications and I don’t want to. Second I paid the $17 just to see the difference and there wasn’t any. $17 allowed me to see all the people I skipped smh. Also y’all need to add preferences if this app is going to be used for dating. It should be mandatory to add race (because there’s non-black people on a pro black dating app) weight height and hair so we can filter out what we are not interested in. I’m athletic so I don’t want someone who is not athletic. I’m not into short men and I hate having to ask how tall someone is. I think it’s rude but we all have preferences and yes I will end the conversation if I don’t agree with your measurements. Same thing when it comes to hair. I have long natural hair and I’m not into bald men. This is literally one of the main reasons why I won’t turn on the notifications..Version: 4.17.0

Terrible AppAfter months of no matches I responded to a pop-up survey asking me if I was happy with the app. I said no and went on to explain why. Within an hour or so after responding, my account was disabled. Customer service claimed I violated their terms of service without providing any proof. They also said due to privacy reasons they couldn’t give me any information on my account. This app gets to a point where you’ll swipe 5 times and you’ll be out of swiped for the day. It’s also full of overweight women, transgender, bots, and scammers. Avoid this app at all costs! ***Update due to developer response*** You shouldn’t be able to disable anyone’s account without a reason. If someone violated your terms of service and you determine it’s necessary to disable the account… you have every right to do so. But it’s a terrible business practice to simply tell the member that they did something bad and you won’t tell them what it was. How do you expect the “bad” behavior to change? It’s the equivalent of a cop pulling you over and handing you a ticket and then walking away without an explanation. Nobody in their right mind would be okay with this..Version: 3.20.0

Not worth the moneyCan't access my messages. You pay for nothing. Getting refunded!.Version: 3.19.0

DisabledI wasn’t even on the app for a day and you guys disabled my account. I emailed you guys multiple times. You don’t have proof I violated anything. You took my info and disabled me. You guys are all for black singles finding love but do this? This app is a scam and you guys should be ashamed.Version: 4.10.0

Would Not RecommendLet me first start by saying , I’ve never paid for a dating app subscription. I joined BLK because I thought it would be different, so I chose to bite the billet and pay $20 for a ONE MONTH subscription. Within 24 hours I was regretful. The only benefits you get with a paid subscription is the ability to see who “liked” your profile. That’s it. 99% of the likes I got were all people with free accounts so now I feel really dumb. It’s really the same people you can find on tinder , POF, or hinge. There’s nothing special about this app. Nothing sets it apart from the rest besides the name. There are a handful of non black members on the app. There’s a lot of couples on the app looking for threesomes. A lot of men with no substance. I can say within 14hrs I did have over 400 likes on my profile but the selection of men is minimal. Most don’t complete their profiles, or have old pictures. I set my age limit to 29-35 and I still get 21 years olds in my mix. There’s no customization for the profiles to make them interesting either. The whole app is a flop, and I’m honestly just mad I can’t get a refund. Would not recommend, and if you do join , stick with the free version..Version: 2.0.14 best. Your preferences don't matter.I was attracted to this app because of its focus on Black singles - great! I set up my account which was easy. I set my preferences, which as also easy, although I do wish there were more options. I quickly gained several match requests (easily 100+ daily), but they were all SCRUBS. I prefer a man who is educated, has gainful employment and can hold a conversation (all attributes I have). Easily 98 of the 100 matches I had on any day I denied. I set my preferences to a certain age range and still received match requests from people far older and younger than my range - including a former student, which is what led me to cancel my subscription. Had my metrics been honored, this would not have happened. The app doesn't require you to share much about yourself, so it's hard to set preferences to see/be seen by who you want. I'm swiping through the end of the month to get what I paid for, but will be deactivating after. This app is NOT for educated folk looking for other educated folk nor is it one that will let you look for and find what you probably downloaded or for..Version: 2.3.0

Don’t download this unless u wanna deal with thisI used this app to meet people near me. Considering I live in a huge state I put my location to view people only 40 miles away but they have this weird feature that just adds people from a even farther distances (I’m talking 125 miles away ???)and you don't have a choice to stay in the location you want to stay in so that scale they have from20miles to max is not even real cause they can just randomly switch the scale you. And no there’s no way to reverse this but to delete the app and re download it. And if you keep swiping in a lower mile range they will just start showing u people that are 125 miles again. “ These next profiles are just outside your set distance, but they may be a great match!” This is the message they show you. This is so weird to me and I feel like we should have the option to choose how far out we would like to date. This app isn’t it try another one until this is fixed cause how can u date someone whose even 50 miles away ?. I tried to work with this app and put 40 miles to be fair but they still show me people that are far away. So I would avoid it personally it’s annoying but I’m a write an article about it look it up..Version: 3.22.0

WhyWhy do you have to pay just to see who likes you. I am deleting the app.Version: 4.0.0

The Good the BadI really like this app because I don’t have to scroll through a bunch of men I’m not attracted to to find African American men. But the fact I can’t filter or somehow block 20 something men from liking me annoys me. I’m 44, and not one of those women who want to date men their sons age nor do I feel it’s some badge of honor. Also, a HUGE glitch and waste of my time is scrolling thru and “x” someone or swiping left and they show back up in my feed or even in my likes!!! I couldn’t believe it. Why spend time going thru pictures and profiles if it’s not going to do as you direct. Not enough members?! That was enough to make me delete the app. Overall it was a nice try, but most the men on here present themselves like they are looking for hook ups and not legit relationships. If that’s what you want, then could work great, but I want quality connections, so didn’t work for me. Happy dating!!.Version: 3.22.0

LocationI like the idea of having an app curated towards black dating especially as online dating is hard for a black woman. However it only shows matches for people 100 of miles away, which is of no help. So I’m giving this 1 star and I’ve deleted the app..Version: 2.0.0

Def needs some work !!I saw this app on a Facebook ad and decided to take a chance on it. I’ve never really been into online dating (the attention I get from guys in person is annoying enough), but this app did help me meet the man I fell in love with. By the time we met, I was about to just delete the app and forget it, but I was definitely glad I waited. We’ve been inseparable since our first date and are expecting our first child. Thank you BLK for helping us connect. Now it’s time for y’all to take notes. 1. Fix the distance measurements. 2. Create a survey of necessary questions for a dating profile (i.e children, lifestyle, wants/expectations, habits/vices, interests/hobbies, etc). Most people leave the bio section blank. These types of questions will help people get a better idea of someone. More than a picture, name, and age 3. Get a search bar. It was highly annoying to have to scroll through matches to find a person..Version: 2.8.0

Needs several improvementsVery poor account recovery. Unable to update, change or access personal information. App logged me out and I was unable login with my Apple ID- which is supposed to be one of the ways to log in. Unable to create “new” profile due to my email being associated with the account that I’m am locked out of. No refund process..Version: 4.4.0

Legendguru80 percent of the profiles on this app are fake and bots. I am observing other fake activities and might file for refund..Version: 4.5.0

Pay for likes?Can’t believe we need to pay to see how many likes we got. Which don’t make no sense. Y’all got a lot to work on for this app honestly.Version: 3.23.0

Strategy Proves It’s a Waste Of TimeSo I’ve had this app on many different occasions over the years and I have very limited experiences actually connecting with someone. I’ve tried to reduce the app down to a formula just to see if it was my poor decision making on swiping or if it was the app just being over populated with profiles. I deleted my profile and made a new one, I restarted and created a bio, uploaded the max amount of photos and I waited. Because I didn’t feel like it was worth my money to buy the premium version it was my goal to see if I could swipe right on the women that found interest in me by liking me, just by looking at the blurry profile pic that was shown. In my findings, I saw my number of likes increase and the number of possible matches decreased. In fact, 3 days in a row, I swiped right on every single person that came my way(regardless of lack of bio, or profile substance) and I never got a single match & I was relieved. I thought my dating life had hit rock bottom but in reality the app hit rock bottom for me & that’s when I deleted it. It was highly discouraging having 30+ people that like you but you can’t even encounter them..Version: 2.5.0

Terrible AppAfter having used this app for 2 years, I’ve amassed a pretty substantial amount of criticism. The app is very underdeveloped compared to the other apps. I understand that the funding might not be there compared to the likes of apps from The Match Group but I feel someone on the team should know how to advance the app forward. While this isn’t the app owner’s fault, the selection on the app is horrible. There is no proper moderation of the quality of the picture or how many required to be posted. The “likes” received are from members far outside my parameters. Some 10 years older than what the limit in my preference states. Some of my likes are from over a hundred miles away. This is to entice you to purchase the paid subscription so you can see these likes, BLK gets its money and you remain looking dumb after you swipe left on LITERALLY 90+ profiles on your likes because they’re completely not what you have filtered. Lastly, the most annoying apps when it comes to promotion and app sent notifications trying to get you to open the app. “Bored 🥱? Come SWIPE with us!” Shows up like every other day along with some sometimes TWICE-A-DAY cringey push notifications to get you to open the app. I would not recommend, this is a money grab from them.Version: 4.9.0

CheatersMy baby father and boyfriend of 6 years who is 23 years old went on this app and started talking to a 17 year old girl. He told her nothing about his family or anything really. He would pick her up in my car that was late on registration in the middle of the night when he was supposed to be on “grave shift”. They proceeded to have sexual inter coarse on a regular basis in my car while I was at home with our baby. He let her drive my car with no license and they were pulled over and he was taken to jail. He gave her his money and his phone and had her wait in my car for his mom to pick it up. His mom picked her up and dropped her off at home and didn’t say a word to me about it until I found out on my own. Now he is facing up to 3 years in county for charges I won’t say. Not to mention she gave him and then he gave me an STD that is incurable. He also gave her a $100 Nike gift card that I got him for his birthday. He would ask me for money for gas to drive 40 minutes out every night to go have inter coarse with a child. There is more to the story but I’ll end it there. Horrible.Version: 3.4.0

TERRIBLE APP.I’ve had this app for a few years now with no issues, and all of a sudden the app decides to disable my account. So I email customer service and there are supposed to get back to you with in 48 hours ( which is a lie I waited almost a week for a response!) they first responded that they would take this to the higher ups and then a few days later one responded that it was a technical error and app should be fixed now, the next rep responded that I violated their terms and was removed because of this. I then proceeded to ask what terms I violated and they responded that they couldn’t tell me due to privacy reasons ( so you cant tell me about my own account great). Horrible customer service I called in and a rep with a really heavy accent said something about having my Snapchat info on the bio and deleting my account to make a new one. ( doing that didn’t help I’m blocked so every account I make keeps being disabled ) their reps are incompetent that rep obviously didn’t know what a hold button was kept me on hold with no music. And kept giving me the run around. Their follow up is horrible and their communication between reps is as well how does one rep tell me technical issues and the other says violation get if together people. If I could give them 0 stars I would! My sc info was in my bio for years now why didn’t you flag a warning and remove the info it’s not that serious. The way this app handles people is ridiculous. STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP PEOPLE!.Version: 2.2.0

Scam’sTerrible don’t use this app.Version: 3.18.0

Doesn’t save changesI have to keep typing my bio every time I reopen the app.Version: 4.3.0

Lacks specificity and seems cheapI’ve been both a premium and basic account holder with this app. It seriously lacks filters. If you’re looking for something serious or someone who meets a certain criteria, you won’t be able to filter your matches by any means to make it easier on you and the people you attract. I’ve had 100s of likes in one day and 90% are people not interested in the type of relationship I’m interested in, they have children (I personally want my first child and my partner’s first child to be with one another), they live entirely too far, and I’ve also had a real issue with finding educated men. And by that, I don’t mean a formal education is necessary, but I’ve run into some real ignorance (as to be expected with any dating app I guess). It’s just frustrating to swipe left over and over again when it could’ve been mitigated by simply adding an algorithm that allowed filters or suggested matches based off of your previous swipes. I just wish there was a better way to filter men who I’d ACTUALLY potentially be interested in..Version: 2.0.0

Money hungryI made a new account recently and got about 35 likes in less than a day. However, I’ve only made 2 matches. Instead of showing you the people who have swiped on you so you can make some matches they purposely hide your likes from you in hopes that you pay to actually see them. It’s a really money hungry and cheap thing to do. Even if you were to pay it seems like you’re likes go stagnant after a while. As I said, I got around 35 likes the first day I made my new account. After that, your likes suddenly stop increasing which just doesn’t make any sense unless it’s being interfered with. This app has great potential for the black community but they follow in the footsteps of every other dating app. And even the best dating apps aren’t that good and have the same issues so I don’t understand why they would want to hop on the money hungry train. People would be far more willing to spend money on this app if it wasn’t designed and modeled after every other app, in that you have to pay for the best result. And even if you were to pay it genuinely seems like the amount of people you’re exposed to gets reduced after a while. So it’s a slap in the face to spend money on this app..Version: 4.5.0

This app is a jokeI got my account taken away for no reason at all. I even reported it and asked about it and they would not and could not tell me why they took my account away. These dating apps are failing and becoming a scam. How do yall comment and ask me to email about my concern but I’ve been doing that for past 6 months and all i get is ignored or y’all would flat out and accuse and assume that i violated yall rules? For one, just look at the reviews we all are saying and reporting the same exact problem and yall still continue to assume and accuse of violating rules. There was no violation. Yall cant and wouldnt tell me what I violated and still cant and wont. Yall dont do no investigating. I reported so many racism on the app and i never got my problems solved. Yall randomly took my account down without any reasoning. Yall only response to me and everyone else who reported this app is oir account got banned cause of violating the rules. All the other apps if you violate they have the reason and proof of the violation and they will have options to appeal and investigate more before they make a final decision. This app does not care to investigate nor give reasoning why they taking people apps without notice..Version: 4.13.1

It Has Potential, But Certainly Needs WorkI know there’s a maximum of characters but there should be a minimum as well. At least 75% of the bios here are nothing more than some social media telling you to contact them outside of the app or a random quote. It’s nice to see how far away people are but there should be sliders in the options to limit my search to a certain area. I continue to see profiles of women at least 80 miles from me and it’s very disheartening. Also the premium adds nothing to the experience of the app. It looks the same, I can’t see any matches I have (and I was told I have several before I got the premium), and there are no extra options that would otherwise be unavailable. Lastly, I’d really like there to be a reminder to swipe. This would get more traffic and remind people who forget they have the app to come and check it out. If these issues are fixed, I believe the app will greatly improve..Version: 1.9.6

Fix the DistanceI keep seeing people from 300 miles away..Version: 1.10.0

Accounts Get Deleted With No WarningI heard great things about this app, and so I decided to join in and see what it was about. I made my account and updated my profile with no issues. After about an hour, I decided to go back on and start the process of trying to match with people, just to learn my account was disabled. I thought it may have been a technical issue, so I waited a few minutes, but got the same result when I tried again. I decided to email customer service, and the rep said they would have their higher up look into it, who then told me I violated the terms of use and said my account had been terminated. I’m not sure what terms I could have violated within an hour of being on there, but okay. I am frustrated because I know I didn’t do anything to have my account terminated. I tried to follow up with customer service on Monday, but I have not received any response. What’s surprising to me is some reviews have shared that people on the app will report you if you don’t respond to them (which is petty to me) but it doesn’t seem like anything is being done about that, yet people who are joining the app with positive, genuine intentions are the ones having their accounts terminated. The customer service I experienced was horrible, and it makes me just want to find black love somewhere else..Version: 4.0.1

Dont waste ur time or moneyIt isn’t different then any other toxic dating app it’s just centred around black folks. The creators Might as well get on they knees and start begging for money cuz u ain’t meeting no other brotha or sista on here that easy by not paying..Version: 3.19.0

Good but inconsistentOverall the app is good. Main problem is that it’s inconsistent when it comes to the features. I’m seeing white people on a black dating app… Keeps showing me women from 100+ miles away when I didn’t set it to that. I keep seeing dude’s showing up on my feed when I set it to women only!.Version: 4.12.0
