BLK is a dating and lifestyle app that aims to create a safe, warm, inclusive and supportive space for Black love in all its forms. It is an online community for Black culture makers, where Blackness is celebrated, Black people are seen, and Black voices are amplified. BLK is more than just an online dating app; it is a platform to make meaningful connections on all levels, from finding love to making friends and building a squad.
BLK has received several awards and recognition, such as being rated as one of the 15 Best Online Dating Apps to Find Relationships by Oprah Daily, one of the 10 Best Black Dating Sites to Meet Black Singles in 2022 by SF Gate, and The Best Dating App for Black Women by 21Ninety.
To use BLK, users can set up a free profile with connection preferences and scroll through personalized profiles. If they like a profile, they can slide it to the right to show interest. If the feeling is mutual, they can start chatting right away. Users can also customize their profile with self-expression stickers to give potential matches more insight into who they are.
BLK is open to everyone, regardless of gender identity or sexual preference. The app is LGBTQ+ friendly and provides a home for the queer community to meet and connect.
Users can also opt for a Premium or Elite subscription for additional features such as rewinding profiles, sending over 100 Super Likes per month, boosting profiles, and seeing who has liked their profile.
