My Review 

The "idea" behind the site is great. But there is nobody home behind the scenes or on the Facebook site. This site could BLOW UP the internet dating circle and be extremely successful IF the owner took more of a hands on approach to it along with marketing the group.

Per the site: "All accounts are reviewed by human staff individually, so please do not add your personal contact details or your account will be banned without further notice. This includes any reference to email address, telephone numbers, other websites, instant messengers and internet service providers. Profanity and obscene profiles will also be banned."

FALSE! I have seen just today TEN profiles that were NOT reviewed by a human. If they were, they would have been able to see grammatical errors which are common with African scammers. One individual talked about his love for his daughter and in the very next sentenced, referenced this child as a "he", along with sentences that sounded like he copied and pasted bits and pieces from other profiles. IF someone read that and not scanned it with a computer program that has specific words in it that are considered unacceptable, they would have never put that profile on the site as live.

There is so much potential for this site, but sadly as with most interracial ideas, sites, blogs, etc ... they fizzle out and it's nothing more than someone getting rich off of $19.95.

How much did you pay? 

The cost is $19.95 a month.

Would you recommend this to a friend? 

No
