Soul Singles Love Stories
“We met on your site 2 years ago, and although we felt such an INSTANT connection, it wasn’t the right time for either of us. But we couldn’t lose such a wonderful friendship, and stayed in touch. Now, the time is right, and we are together and very much in love. He’s the love of my life! THANK YOU!”
- Michelle Snell
“I met a very special gentleman. We’ve been communicating often and though we currently live in two separate states, we have decided to see how this works out. I’m relocating south and he plans to follow in the near future. God has used this site and exceeded my expectations. Thank you SoulSingles!”
— Jen M.
“Just want to let you know your site was awesome and thanks to you I have found the love of a lifetime. I hope others on this site may find this as well. Thanks again.”
— Jennifer C.
“I have connected with my soulmate through this site. Thank you so much for your help. I never would have met this person had it not been for you.”
— Sam Baron
Though the process takes a few minutes, Soul Singles makes signing up as enjoyable as possible. First you enter the critical details: your gender, the gender of the people you’re looking for, your birthday, email, and password. And then come the slides.
Soul Singles has a unique way of getting you to answer questions about yourself. A series of colorful slides pop up asking you about your height, body weight, job, lifestyle habits, and some personal details about religion, family, and roots. In total the process takes 5-7 minutes, but once you’re done you realize that the most mundane part of your profile is already set up for you. From there you’re good to go.
Matchmaking & Search Functions
Soul Singles lets you apply filters to your search in order to narrow down your matches. Basic users can apply filters such as family roots, psychique, race, and religion, while platinum users have many more options. A few examples of ways platinum users can narrow down their searches:
- Favorite music
Features & Communication Tools
Soul Singles has an easy-to-use platform to let you chat with other members. Every profile also has a heart icon you can click to notify them that you like them, similar to ‘flirts’ in other dating sites. While there are fewer communication options than other sites, the process is relatively simple and cuts down on unnecessary clutter.
When you receive a message or a like, you’ll be notified at the top of your dashboard. One click is all it takes to view your likes and incoming messages.
Safety & Security
Soul Singles takes safety very seriously and dedicates plenty of space to educating users on what to look out for and informing them on best practices for keeping themselves safe. The FAQ page features in-depth tips, red flags, and other pieces of advice on everything from what to look out for during the initial correspondence to how to avoid potential dangers when making plans for meeting up in person.
Additionally, users can block members by clicking the “block user” icon at the top of their profile. In the event of inappropriate behavior users can submit their concerns to the “report a concern” link at the bottom of every profile.
Soul Singles only offers a free and platinum plan. While anyone can sign up, create a profile, and search for free, there are benefits to the platinum that not only create higher visibility but allow users to communicate more easily with less ads and set more detailed search parameters. Another benefit to being a platinum member is that you can use all of World Singles Networks’ dating sites, which encompass more than a dozen international dating sites, including AfricanLove, EligibleGreeks, Ethiopian Personals, and Italiano Singles.
Help & Support
For any questions not answered on the FAQ page, Soul Singles lists an email and telephone number. There are no live chat options and the site says nothing about the length of response time is, so your best bet is to telephone them for urgent matters or otherwise check the FAQs or send an email through the portal on the contact page.
Find Love on Soul Singles
If you’re a black single or looking to meet a black single, Soul Singers has plenty to offer. The format is user-friendly, with the designers clearly preferring real connections over fancy gadgets and other tools that can clutter the website. While some of the matching tools are basic, they offer more than enough options for you to express your individuality and learn about other potential matches. Soul Singles seems especially suited to those who are tired of games and want to cut through the clutter in order to find their special someone.
