More and more people in Nairobi, Mombasa and other cities across the country are connecting to the web everyday.

Many of these people are singles in search of love and have signed up for the best online dating sites in Kenya.

How to Communicate with Other Members Afro Introductions’ basic messaging system is simple to use, with many options for filtering.

You can also “show interest” by clicking a heart icon on their profile or add them to your favorites.

As a result of this there is no waiting period like other sites have, you can begin using the site right away.

We also have an active discussion forum, which other South African dating sites don't offer.

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.

Unique Site Features I found the site layout clear, welcoming and well-designed.

As is the case with most African countries, the majority of Kenyans meet their romantic partners via the traditional methods of friends of the family, mutual friends, organizations, work, or school, etc; however, the Kenyan dating landscape is changing, and online dating is becoming increasingly more mainstream.

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.

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.
