    Okay but could be better.................. Mar 30, 2022

    By Lovely one
    I have set specific parameters regarding distance, men beyond my parameter show up. This is a bit annoying. This is my second time using the app and I forgot about this. Then my other issue is showing the same people near and far repeatedly. If I declined him the first time why roll it around a few days later? So now I guess I will just begin blocking them to stop repeating the same faces far and near.

    Terminated and banned with no explanation besides I violated community guidelines. My bio consist of a few words about myself and 1 picture of myself. Customer service is so poor, I pictured all the black characters in hollywoods movies of them depicting the black man/woman who sits at the desk doing absolutely nothing but being on her phone and giving attitude when asked to do work.

    What more can I say, I was able to have interesting conversations with individuals I would likely never have encountered irl. I met the love of my life and ultimately deleted the app. Feedback I got from men though, was that apparently they’ve been having a tough time with discerning if a person was on there to meet people or boost their various online profiles. (You know which kind I’m talking about). My profile was sort of cryptic, to be fair. On occasion this prompted men to aggressively try to attain my socials. I think asking users to answer a few basic compatibility questions in their profile might offset this. The app also regularly reminded me that I had downloaded it which encouraged me to use it and respond to messages and new matches more often. I enjoyed the cute and sometimes cheesy reminders about how I was breaking hearts and to not keep my matches waiting. I don’t have any complaints really, because I met someone that I love deeply so everything feels all rosy now. I am a conventionally attractive, well read, socially conscious, 30 something - so I’ve never had trouble meeting people in real life, I merely wanted to fish from a lake or faster moving river as opposed to a small pond.

    As you the title says I’m only 19 , summer after freshman year in college my best friend and I got into this app for fun . Just to see who was on there locally , see who we could pull and just to talk to strangers out of boredom. Hers didn’t go so well because of a false report but me ? Let me tell you lol ! Hundreds of matches came flying in ! so many handsome people my age , people that weren’t even my age but it was ok because compliments were given from all lol . Out of so many of them , I only texted back 1. He immediately gave me his # and from there I still did him like others and did not text back . He blew me up and I had no choice but to entertain him. He was literally 6 minutes away and one night he just pulled up . Hate to say it but we chilled , smoked and next thing you know ! Boom ! Every day after that, we hung out . Went on dates , met my family and friends. Started dating and months later I’m 5 weeks pregnant . Yup PREGNANT!! we are still in love and together but I can say all thanks to BLK. Sometimes I blame BLK but I honestly love that I downloaded this app lol !
  • Great app but... Feb 28, 2020

    I initially enjoyed the app but over time I began to see issues with it that made me delete the app.. Issues: 1. Fake profiles. There were either fake profiles with the usual scam bios. 2. Too many women on there seemed to be trying to market their modeling career for attention on Instagram than actually date. I even ran into a girl that was trying to sell her book about dating and not actually there to date. These types ruin the dating pool. 3. There needs to be a feature for those strictly interested in heterosexual relationships not to see anything other than the opposite sex. I don’t wanna be offensive so I’ll leave it at that. 4. Not sure if there is a fix for this but sometimes it would make you swipe left or right with a simple touch of the screen. Might be a glitch. 5. There should be a time limit of sorts for when someone can reply before they’re unmatched. The women I’ve dated often complained their inboxes are overwhelming and they miss messages so it’s hard to get to some. It’s also annoying for someone to swipe right on you and you never hear from them. 6. I would love it if you guys added a “Verify your account” feature with a blue check mark or something. I don’t want to waste my time on people who aren’t serious, will waste your time or are fake. Good stuff! 1. Valentine’s Day concept was perfect. 2. I respect and appreciate this being one of the few apps with mostly US on there. 🙂

    They can do better with matching those in your location but all in all not its a bad site. You have options and some actually are on there looking for love. I don't like how once you uninstall the app, your information is still logged in. So make sure when you are done you take all your photos down, deactivate your profile then uninstall the app.
  • Could be better Jul 6, 2020

    By Candiee83
    Hey so far liking the app but could be better. Allow people’s likes’ count to go down when they found a match hitting “yeah” or “nah”. Also I’ve found a few minor things that could add to the layout and navigation of the site. For instance being able to undo an accident swipe (left or right). Changing the area of the buttons. Had a few mistakenly “Kinged” lol. Another thing being able to weigh in more than a 150 bio. Also having the ability to like photos and statements, not only profiles. It’s wise allowing people to be able to update their name or DOB etc. Many members have stated the age is wrong in the Bio because they’re unable to change it. Liking the app so far. Oh also having an option to choose the distance is very necessary. Not all members want to connect wit someone over 100+ miles. I personally don’t care but having the option OF RANGE improves continued use. Majority of the results are 200 miles! Another thing that would be great, when you find a match the count should go down. Ready to give 5 stars with a few changes.

    Best app so far than others. I love that it doesn't box you in on location, or limit you to guys within only 150 miles. It's nice to see fresh faces. When you're on apps, you see many of the same ppl over and over trying to match, some you may have met or chatted with. This app has more of a selection because it doesn't limit your location.

    I was on this app and subscribed to be an Elite member. It has some good perks but when it comes to the distance there is an issue where you cannot select a distance preference. They have one out there. But isn’t working. Which isn’t helpful and it makes it not enjoyable when you know you don’t want to be chatting with someone that is more then 800 miles. They said that feature will be fixed sometime this year. But nothing concrete. So I mention I should get a refund fo that reason. No response on that matter. But responded less then five minutes concerning the distance feature. The app developer responded to my first initial complaint. They responded that it starts off with the members closer to you and goes up to 1200 miles. Which is true! However with that being said. You still can’t set your distance nor can you go back to an area you would like to be. Which makes the app not excited when you run out of choices for that day, which are now set. The app isn’t very useful for personal preference. Which should be available as I have seen and used on other sites.

  • Where’s the support team? Dec 1, 2020

    By lordbris
    Recently I made an account cuz I thought the app seemed pretty cool and off rip it started lagging very badly and loading really slow I had to make the account like 4 times then when I finally got to make it they messed up my age so it was up a yea and I see that’s a common mistake because there was a lot of people saying their actual age in their bios so I see they had this little super like package and I bought that it was only like 2 dollars and some change. But literally moment later my account gets disabled. I received no email back from the support team or any explanation to why my account has been disabled and that was two days ago and I’ve still haven’t heard any type of response or reason to why my account was disabled. And I’ve asked to have my account in multiple emails and still haven’t gotten a response so it’s like just give me my money back at this point.

    Please don't get me wrong, I think this is a really good app good app and you can meet a nice amount of people on here but it does suffer from some issues issues. One it has a lagging problem whenever you whenever you swipe and see people's pictures when you get to the 3rd or 4th person it starts to slow down to where you have to wait to swipe to see pictures. It's also full of ad's, fake profiles, And the lack of the ability to search to search for what you are looking for.

    By Simone
    Good app but the interface could use some improvement. I hate having to scroll all the way through someone's pictures just to get to their profile and see that it's not filled out/they're looking for something casual when I'm not. I wish there was an option to filter by things like that, even if it's part of a paid level. Also, this is the only app where i have a problem getting the "cards" to swipe. In know the touch feedback on my phone is fine so idk what's up with that.

    Update: I received support for refund of the membership since I couldn't use the app effectively with the logout problem. However, the actual logout problem has not been solved. --- I've tried out this app a couple of times. I like that the algorithm shows you to more people than some other apps I've used. This most recent time has been disappointing, in the past month, the app started logging me out randomly and won't stay logged in for longer than 10 seconds.
  • TERRIBLE APP. Jan 23, 2021

    By naynae1994
    I’ve had this app for a few years now with no issues, and all of a sudden the app decides to disable my account. So I email customer service and there are supposed to get back to you with in 48 hours ( which is a lie I waited almost a week for a response!) they first responded that they would take this to the higher ups and then a few days later one responded that it was a technical error and app should be fixed now, the next rep responded that I violated their terms and was removed because of this. I then proceeded to ask what terms I violated and they responded that they couldn’t tell me due to privacy reasons ( so you cant tell me about my own account great). Horrible customer service I called in and a rep with a really heavy accent said something about having my Snapchat info on the bio and deleting my account to make a new one. ( doing that didn’t help I’m blocked so every account I make keeps being disabled ) their reps are incompetent that rep obviously didn’t know what a hold button was kept me on hold with no music. And kept giving me the run around. Their follow up is horrible and their communication between reps is as well how does one rep tell me technical issues and the other says violation get if together people. If I could give them 0 stars I would! My sc info was in my bio for years now why didn’t you flag a warning and remove the info it’s not that serious. The way this app handles people is ridiculous. STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP PEOPLE!

    Some updates should be done to this app to make it better for the person using it in the city their in. Eventually we're shown the same profiles we've said no to. What's the point of showing people 100+ miles away chances are neither party will drive to meet? Users should have the ability to look in each city. I've been both a free and paid user. Hard to find who likes you if you can't find them. Not everyone wants to pay for the app. Should be able to search within your city or location.

    No love for android users. Until the fix all the bugs and add the same features iphones have for their streaming feature, then this is going to remain 1 star. Can't send message, change profile photos, see people's pictures and pages correctly. Don't be lazy make it the same for both phone types. Also can't expand on pictures when you click profile, no way to send messages or connect with the people you meet or even change your profile bio and/or add pictures. Stop deleting my review.
  • Mar 9, 2022

    By Elisabeth P.
    I actually like the app when it worked!! I just logged in after a couple of months and I literally have been kicked out every minute. Each time I respond to a new message or click more than 5 times. I updated / unistalled / reinstalled. There's nothing about my profile that would warrant it being deactivated. It says my profile "isn't showing". Sometimes competing isn't needed when you have quality because now the whole app is crashing and I'm unable to use it for its intent. Bad decision.
  • Mediocre is the Word of the Day May 9, 2020

    By Taria95
    This app is mediocre at best. While the layout of the app is okay, there are some things that would really improve it. For example, one small thing is having the text wrap around when someone writes their education and occupation in, so you can see the full text they’ve written. Another small thing is making the “About Me” section you can write in the same as the one that gets presented to potential matches. The layout of the words isn’t consistent when switching between editing the profile and simply viewing the profile. It’d also be nice to add the feature of the “enter button” or ability to skip a line when writing an “about me”. Within the settings, there needs to be a way to turn off all notifications besides messages. Lastly, you should have the option to set your location to one place. Not everyone is staying where they are in the current moment and sometimes want to meet someone close to where they live instead of where they currently are. A person’s city should be shown, not just the miles because you don’t know which direction the person might live in. If it’s a matter of privacy, maybe hide the person’s name until after they match, or have each person’s distance in relation to major cities instead. As a bonus, you could also consider asking prompt questions.

    Doesn't work. Can't get past the photo upload (uploading pictures doesn't let you progress). Can't find anything online about this issue either. EDIT: I was finally able to make an account, but now I'm having the same issues others have stated where I'm constantly getting logged off and I can't edit my profile at all. So much headache just to use the app.

    What more can I say, I was able to have interesting conversations with individuals I would likely never have encountered irl. I met the love of my life and ultimately deleted the app. Feedback I got from men though, was that apparently they’ve been having a tough time with discerning if a person was on there to meet people or boost their various online profiles. (You know which kind I’m talking about). My profile was sort of cryptic, to be fair. On occasion this prompted men to aggressively try to attain my socials. I think asking users to answer a few basic compatibility questions in their profile might offset this. The app also regularly reminded me that I had downloaded it which encouraged me to use it and respond to messages and new matches more often. I enjoyed the cute and sometimes cheesy reminders about how I was breaking hearts and to not keep my matches waiting. I don’t have any complaints really, because I met someone that I love deeply so everything feels all rosy now. I am a conventionally attractive, well read, socially conscious, 30 something - so I’ve never had trouble meeting people in real life, I merely wanted to fish from a lake or faster moving river as opposed to a small pond.

  • Has Potential Apr 18, 2020

    By DFame
    I subscribed to the Premium account for three months thinking that was the top tier service that will give me the ability to see Likes. I then realized that it was not...because I couldn't see my Likes. I saw an ad for an Elite membership and tried to subscribe (willing to pay the up-charge) and couldn’t. I contacted support about the issue and was advised that I couldn’t upgrade my subscription until my current one expires. So now I have to wait for months before I can see who Likes me or send messages (before matching). I feel cheated a bit and it’s already tough since it’s a newer app and there aren’t a lot of people using it near me. Also, I hate that I have to click their info section just to see how close they are. Other than that, I like the swiping layout.

    They can do better with matching those in your location but all in all not its a bad site. You have options and some actually are on there looking for love. I don't like how once you uninstall the app, your information is still logged in. So make sure when you are done you take all your photos down, deactivate your profile then uninstall the app.
  • Could be better Jul 6, 2020

    By Candiee83
    Hey so far liking the app but could be better. Allow people’s likes’ count to go down when they found a match hitting “yeah” or “nah”. Also I’ve found a few minor things that could add to the layout and navigation of the site. For instance being able to undo an accident swipe (left or right). Changing the area of the buttons. Had a few mistakenly “Kinged” lol. Another thing being able to weigh in more than a 150 bio. Also having the ability to like photos and statements, not only profiles. It’s wise allowing people to be able to update their name or DOB etc. Many members have stated the age is wrong in the Bio because they’re unable to change it. Liking the app so far. Oh also having an option to choose the distance is very necessary. Not all members want to connect wit someone over 100+ miles. I personally don’t care but having the option OF RANGE improves continued use. Majority of the results are 200 miles! Another thing that would be great, when you find a match the count should go down. Ready to give 5 stars with a few changes.
  • Not what it’s cut out to be Sep 22, 2020

    By Prefence Individual
    I was on this app and subscribed to be an Elite member. It has some good perks but when it comes to the distance there is an issue where you cannot select a distance preference. They have one out there. But isn’t working. Which isn’t helpful and it makes it not enjoyable when you know you don’t want to be chatting with someone that is more then 800 miles. They said that feature will be fixed sometime this year. But nothing concrete. So I mention I should get a refund fo that reason. No response on that matter. But responded less then five minutes concerning the distance feature. The app developer responded to my first initial complaint. They responded that it starts off with the members closer to you and goes up to 1200 miles. Which is true! However with that being said. You still can’t set your distance nor can you go back to an area you would like to be. Which makes the app not excited when you run out of choices for that day, which are now set. The app isn’t very useful for personal preference. Which should be available as I have seen and used on other sites.

    Please don't get me wrong, I think this is a really good app good app and you can meet a nice amount of people on here but it does suffer from some issues issues. One it has a lagging problem whenever you whenever you swipe and see people's pictures when you get to the 3rd or 4th person it starts to slow down to where you have to wait to swipe to see pictures. It's also full of ad's, fake profiles, And the lack of the ability to search to search for what you are looking for.

    By Simone
    Good app but the interface could use some improvement. I hate having to scroll all the way through someone's pictures just to get to their profile and see that it's not filled out/they're looking for something casual when I'm not. I wish there was an option to filter by things like that, even if it's part of a paid level. Also, this is the only app where i have a problem getting the "cards" to swipe. In know the touch feedback on my phone is fine so idk what's up with that.
  • It’s Ok but Could Def Be Better Dec 10, 2020

    By Dark Romance
    I like the app dynamic I do there are some Kinks tho, I wonder could u guys come up with like a check mark to verify authenticity of it being the person in the pictures like on Badoo. Second bro or sis whoever is behind this brilliant apps creation I’ve been waiting for this as a dating black man searching for his own people having said that there is a lot of white people and Hispanic ppl on there. I mean it doesn’t even ask u ur race cuz it assumes everyone on there is black but listen THEY ARENT. Profiles is like “I’m not black but I love black men” I’m like “yea, WE KNOW”, I suppose u can’t do anything about that but is there a way like or can we be premium members and have a search for “strictly black” option that would help a lot? It kinda kills the vibe for the whole dynamic of the app for it to be geared to Blacks looking for blacks and it a lot more than blacks on there. Finally the distance it says u can filter ur distance and when u do in my case 20 miles it’ll still show me ppl 40miles away, can we work on this please? Love the app tho

    Okay but could be better.................. Mar 30, 2022

    By Lovely one
    I have set specific parameters regarding distance, men beyond my parameter show up. This is a bit annoying. This is my second time using the app and I forgot about this. Then my other issue is showing the same people near and far repeatedly. If I declined him the first time why roll it around a few days later? So now I guess I will just begin blocking them to stop repeating the same faces far and near.

    Update: I received support for refund of the membership since I couldn't use the app effectively with the logout problem. However, the actual logout problem has not been solved. --- I've tried out this app a couple of times. I like that the algorithm shows you to more people than some other apps I've used. This most recent time has been disappointing, in the past month, the app started logging me out randomly and won't stay logged in for longer than 10 seconds.
  • Mar 9, 2022

    By Elisabeth P.
    I actually like the app when it worked!! I just logged in after a couple of months and I literally have been kicked out every minute. Each time I respond to a new message or click more than 5 times. I updated / unistalled / reinstalled. There's nothing about my profile that would warrant it being deactivated. It says my profile "isn't showing". Sometimes competing isn't needed when you have quality because now the whole app is crashing and I'm unable to use it for its intent. Bad decision.
  • Mediocre is the Word of the Day May 9, 2020

    By Taria95
    This app is mediocre at best. While the layout of the app is okay, there are some things that would really improve it. For example, one small thing is having the text wrap around when someone writes their education and occupation in, so you can see the full text they’ve written. Another small thing is making the “About Me” section you can write in the same as the one that gets presented to potential matches. The layout of the words isn’t consistent when switching between editing the profile and simply viewing the profile. It’d also be nice to add the feature of the “enter button” or ability to skip a line when writing an “about me”. Within the settings, there needs to be a way to turn off all notifications besides messages. Lastly, you should have the option to set your location to one place. Not everyone is staying where they are in the current moment and sometimes want to meet someone close to where they live instead of where they currently are. A person’s city should be shown, not just the miles because you don’t know which direction the person might live in. If it’s a matter of privacy, maybe hide the person’s name until after they match, or have each person’s distance in relation to major cities instead. As a bonus, you could also consider asking prompt questions.

    Doesn't work. Can't get past the photo upload (uploading pictures doesn't let you progress). Can't find anything online about this issue either. EDIT: I was finally able to make an account, but now I'm having the same issues others have stated where I'm constantly getting logged off and I can't edit my profile at all. So much headache just to use the app.
  • It could use some improvements Nov 29, 2021

    By JessaBx
    I want to start off with my absolutely love the fact that this app exists. I recently moved to a majority white area and dating hasn’t been the easiest for me. This app is nice but compared to the other dating apps, it’s a little lackluster. Other dating apps give you the choice to be specific with what you’re looking for, but this app doesn’t. The people on this app aren’t really engaged in it, majority of the people do not put anything in their bios. Most of them don’t even bother to fill out all of the personal, appearance, and habits tabs. I think this app should have verification because I’ve seen way too many people on the app not use their own photos. If you don’t pay for elite on the app, you will most likely not have a fun experience. I had previously use this app and at the time I paid for elite membership, and I absolutely loved my experience on the app. Then I re-downloaded it and now I have the standard version and I’ve been on here for almost 2 weeks and I’ve only matched with like 6 people but it says I have +99 likes. They don’t really put the people who have liked you in your swipes. I love the fact that this app exists but I’m growing frustrated with it more and more because why do I have to pay to have a nice experience on your app???

    I mean, the app is pretty good, better than Tinder when it comes to finding black people. But I've been experiencing problems with my account to where I can't even log in anymore. I checked, and double checked the Terms Of Service for the app to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong. Came to the conclusion that I had done nothing wrong, so I reached out to the customer service 3 different times about my situation to no avail. If this app needs anything, it needs a customer service team.
  • Mar 28, 2022

    By Ms. H
    The elite feature has flaws. If I click on a profile from the "who liked me section" and click on a users picture, I can only see 1 picture at a time. It does not allow the function to view the other photos. There's also no back button built in from this screen so I can see the other pics on the user's profile. If I press the back button on my phone, it takes me back to the main "who liked me" screen rather than the profile I was in, which in essence, makes me start completely over.
  • Pretty awful. Mar 22, 2022

    By Lexiplaysdisgame22
    I will attempt to update if my experience changes; however, to this point, my experience has been pretty awful. It’s the same thing over and over. Hey, you’re so pretty - immediate red flag, meet me on Google hangouts, send your number, send a picture, all digital ways to steal info, I’m so lonely 800 miles from you or maybe 200, they switch it up. Point being, they are never real. They never use articles in their sentences. Most of them know nothing about basic Black culture. Like I mention things like the Isley Brothers or The Proud Family and they say crazy things like, yes, we have to hang in there proud and strong together. Those are icons and they have never heard of them. It’s Catfish Haven. Pretty disgusting, they really think we’re all desperate, just tell us we’re pretty and we’re supposed to fall all over ourselves for a little male attention. Dis-gusting and stupid. At least they must think we are. It’s super offensive. Both to the beautiful chocolate females they try to deceive and the beautiful chocolate men whose profiles they are stealing. It’s a little entertaining, so I won’t completely give it a one. If they could figure out a way to get rid of the catfish free for all, it would have great potential. Right now, nah.
  • Would Not Recommend Oct 10, 2020

    By 3421pnES
    Let me first start by saying , I’ve never paid for a dating app subscription. I joined BLK because I thought it would be different, so I chose to bite the billet and pay $20 for a ONE MONTH subscription. Within 24 hours I was regretful. The only benefits you get with a paid subscription is the ability to see who “liked” your profile. That’s it. 99% of the likes I got were all people with free accounts so now I feel really dumb. It’s really the same people you can find on tinder , POF, or hinge. There’s nothing special about this app. Nothing sets it apart from the rest besides the name. There are a handful of non black members on the app. There’s a lot of couples on the app looking for threesomes. A lot of men with no substance. I can say within 14hrs I did have over 400 likes on my profile but the selection of men is minimal. Most don’t complete their profiles, or have old pictures. I set my age limit to 29-35 and I still get 21 years olds in my mix. There’s no customization for the profiles to make them interesting either. The whole app is a flop, and I’m honestly just mad I can’t get a refund. Would not recommend, and if you do join , stick with the free version.

    This is a poorly executed app that does nothing to separate itself from the pack. Oct 28, 2021

    By Daquan Semple
    Terminated and banned with no explanation besides I violated community guidelines. My bio consist of a few words about myself and 1 picture of myself. Customer service is so poor, I pictured all the black characters in hollywoods movies of them depicting the black man/woman who sits at the desk doing absolutely nothing but being on her phone and giving attitude when asked to do work.

    I joined which is free and to see profiles you had to pay 13.00 and then to communicate they try to charge your card another 27.00 . It’s not worth stealing money from your card .
  • TERRIBLE APP. Jan 23, 2021

    By naynae1994
    I’ve had this app for a few years now with no issues, and all of a sudden the app decides to disable my account. So I email customer service and there are supposed to get back to you with in 48 hours ( which is a lie I waited almost a week for a response!) they first responded that they would take this to the higher ups and then a few days later one responded that it was a technical error and app should be fixed now, the next rep responded that I violated their terms and was removed because of this. I then proceeded to ask what terms I violated and they responded that they couldn’t tell me due to privacy reasons ( so you cant tell me about my own account great). Horrible customer service I called in and a rep with a really heavy accent said something about having my Snapchat info on the bio and deleting my account to make a new one. ( doing that didn’t help I’m blocked so every account I make keeps being disabled ) their reps are incompetent that rep obviously didn’t know what a hold button was kept me on hold with no music. And kept giving me the run around. Their follow up is horrible and their communication between reps is as well how does one rep tell me technical issues and the other says violation get if together people. If I could give them 0 stars I would! My sc info was in my bio for years now why didn’t you flag a warning and remove the info it’s not that serious. The way this app handles people is ridiculous. STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP PEOPLE!

    Some updates should be done to this app to make it better for the person using it in the city their in. Eventually we're shown the same profiles we've said no to. What's the point of showing people 100+ miles away chances are neither party will drive to meet? Users should have the ability to look in each city. I've been both a free and paid user. Hard to find who likes you if you can't find them. Not everyone wants to pay for the app. Should be able to search within your city or location.

    No love for android users. Until the fix all the bugs and add the same features iphones have for their streaming feature, then this is going to remain 1 star. Can't send message, change profile photos, see people's pictures and pages correctly. Don't be lazy make it the same for both phone types. Also can't expand on pictures when you click profile, no way to send messages or connect with the people you meet or even change your profile bio and/or add pictures. Stop deleting my review.

    By Olga Williams
    Distance is inaccurate on lots of profiles, slim pickings, most have little to no information at all or pictures of themselves, it was extremely difficult to upload pictures, spent hours trying to get one picture to properly upload and gave up when I got ad close as I could. I match with people that never talk then as soon as I unmatch with them they send another like almost immediately which leads me to believe they are not real. Now app won't let me delete my account.
  • Disabled account after 1 day of being on the app Apr 26, 2022

    By takemetobtheriverbanks
    I gave this app 2 stars based on customer service alone. After having tons of matches I logged in that night and my account was disabled. It didn’t give a reason why. I didn’t have any thing inappropriate on my profile ,any social media information or saying anything inappropriate. I’ve connected with some really nice people but I’d never know them due to my account being disabled. I’ve reached out to customer service 4 times with no response. And the one that did respond stated “ Good morning! Thanks for contacting BLK. I understand that your account has been disabled. I'd be happy to check what happened. I would love to help you with your account and give you an answer to your question, but unfortunately, I'm unable to assist you, so I have sent this matter to the appropriate department and someone should respond to you via email within 48 hours. I appreciate your patience and understanding as this matter is being further investigated, and I apologize for the inconvenience. Warm regards,Customer Care Support” When my account was disabled it said click here to contact customer service . If this is the wrong department why have it on the website to contact. Either why I have not been contacted with the 48 hour time frame if at all .
  • Terrible customer service and account terminated with no explanation. Jan 9, 2021

    By C0nfused?????????
    My account was terminated 3weeks after me joining. I did not do anything inappropriate nor did I violate any terms or conditions. I reached out to customer service for an explanation of the alleged accusations and their response was they can’t tell me anything about my account due to privacy reasons which is absurd and makes no sense, not feasible at all. Also took about a month to get a response or email back. I requested a supervisor I did not get one and my dilemma is still unresolved. I know for a fact I didn’t do anything out of line but if u are terminating a account you owe the user an explanation and reason of action. Terrible customer service. Can’t even recommend this site. I can recommend POF Update Developer responded and told me to email them at appreviewsblk and acted like they wanted to help so I emailed the A MONTH AGO with screenshots from blk terrible customer service and responses AND THE DEVELOPER DIDNT EVEN REPLY OR HELP. Not one email from them. Their reply to my review to help was a front. My account was deleted for absolutely no reason possibly a glitch idk and blk won’t tell me why my account was deleted or not accessible. (tinder bumble pof and hinge is better than this crap. )

    This is the worst of the worst of dating app I have come across it has so many bugs and issues. It won't stay logged in. It randomly logs out after 1 minute. It won't even stay logged in long enough for me to delete the account. I would not recommend this app unless you want to be frustrated. They should not offer a premium feature until they get the basics down. I even had issues just registering for an account. Do not waste your time with this app.

    It's really irritating that it keeps moving the age range you set and sometimes by a lot of years. I just end up unmatching and it's a waste for both parties. It was like this the 1st time I tried the app when it was still new, I don't get why that hasn't been changed.
