How did this start?
25 May 2013
Hello and thank you for visiting AfroRomance.com, my name is Robert. Not only am I one of the founders of AfroRomance.com... I'm also the happiest member. I found Kisha, the love of my life on this site. She joined the first week it launched... and around two years later we found each other here...and now we're married with a young child.
It was just over 12 years ago when I first looked into internet dating as a possible solution to finding my special someone. I'd always been attracted to women outside of my own race and thought the internet would allow me greater access to a variety of ladies from different cultures and ethnicities.
What I found were sites that bragged and boasted about the large number of members that they had. However, when I made an attempt to reach out and make contact with some of these women of different races, I would immediately be slammed or ignored by them all together...getting comments like "step off white boy"!
I quickly learned that even though those other sites had the volume, they also had members whose preferences and attitude were almost completely different to mine.
As founder of AfroRomance.com, I am dedicated to making your online dating experience as pleasant and successful as possible. We have taken the shock value out of why we are all here. The AfroRomance.com team is here because we specialize in bringing together like minded singles for interracial dating. That's why we say "We make interracial dating easy". There are enough "unknowns" in dating. It helps to begin your search knowing that you are among people who have very similar interests and goals as you.
As this site continues to grow tremendously, there is still NOTHING as heart warming and encouraging to me as receiving a passionate email from a member telling us that they've found what they were looking for due to our site's help...because I know how it feels myself! I measure our progress by the success stories we help create by providing an environment for like minded singles to meet.
As you begin your search for the "right one for you"...no matter what race... no matter where they may be in this world, let me offer my advice.
All the doctors, experts and dating sites, can keep you alive and in the game... but it's ultimately up to you to determine your "quality of life".
- The past does not equal the future.
- Focus on what you WANT...not what you don't want.
- Take the steps to make it happen.
I look forward to serving you now and in the future as you create your own success story to share and inspire others. Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to assist you in your search.
Never give up on your dreams.
