Online dating in Kenya grew significantly during the first decade of this century thanks to an influx of high speed fiber optic bandwidth that led to a reduction in internet prices.
Having lived and worked in Kenya, I can tell you that your best success with online dating in the country will be in the big cities such as Nairobi and Mombasa where there is a larger pool of people from which to choose. Having traveled in and out of the country on numerous occasions during my days living in Mauritius (a small island country east of Madagascar, in the middle of the Indian Ocean), I grew an appreciation for the silky smooth brown skin tones of the people that live in this country.
Nairobi and Mombasa have an electric nightlife and an infectious energy.
The food is terrible and traffic can be horrific, but the upsides of warm, friendly people far outweigh the downsides.
As I advised in my article on online dating in South Africa, should you decide to sign up for the online dating sites I recommend below, be sure to read member profiles carefully as you might come across a lot of fake profiles. A woman who has only one picture posted, is wearing a tight bikini and making an overly suggestive pose are usually clear signals to steer clear. Afro Introductions is an African dating site under the Cupid Media Network umbrella.
You can also “show interest” by clicking a heart icon on their profile or add them to your favorites.
The site lets you know when members are online and available for Instant Messaging, and audio and video chat is also supported.These can be extremely helpful in making sure you are a good match with someone before taking the time to meet them in person.As a free member, you can read messages from premium members, but to reply to messages or send any of your own, you’ll have to upgrade.Without further ado, here is the quick list of the top three dating sites in Kenya. Started in 2002, Afro Introductions is now 2 million members strong, and growing.Its main member base is located in the USA, the UK, and many African countries, including Kenya, South Africa, and Ghana.Like any dating site these days, you may run across a few sketchy profiles, but if you are black or of African descent like me, or if you’re looking to meet singles in this part of the world, then this is the site for you. To start, link up your Facebook account, or enter your email, gender, age and location.
