In terms of communication, IWantBlacks offer several features for its members.
Given the claims on fake accounts, the dating site limited the accessibility of standard members to this functionalities. That way, a person with malicious intent may be dissuaded to continue, because they have to shell out some money first.
Even in real life, you share a wink with someone to show you got them or you’re interested in them. At IWantBlacks, this wordless interaction can be the start of a flirtation. What’s probably the best part is that this feature is for free.
If you’d instead check on a member one-by-one, then head to IWantBlack’s Like Gallery. A pretty simple game of cute or not, this free feature shows you a member’s photo with their name and age. Hit “x” or “heart” whichever you prefer.
At the bottom, you’ll see the members you liked and the members who liked you. A third tab, Matches, will show you if both you and a member liked each other. If that’s the case, go and shoot your shot.
Keep a record of all the members you find attractive by adding them to your Favorites list. That way, you can always head back and consult your Favorites and never worry that you missed out on someone. This feature is also free, so go ahead and add some more.
The primary communication function of IWantBlacks is understandably for paying users only. Aside from sending texts to your matches, you may also share photos and videos for more vivid interactions on chat.
Standard accounts are given a total of five (5) free chats so they can try out the function for themselves.
One minor beef we had with the website is that we receive numerous messages and interactions right after verifying our test account.
Since the account was new, it didn’t have a photo nor details. The account was stark naked, and this made us wonder what the members found interesting that they winked, favourited, or messaged us.
