A Bowie, Maryland online dating service owned by The Lombard Company, Inc. issued a statement today inviting African Americans to try their new Black Dating Service. Lovetropolis.com, an online dating service that was launched in February 2009, is rolling out Black Dating along with four other ethnic and religion targeted dating services.
“Our goal here is to provide people with what they are looking for in a partner,” said a company spokesperson. “Members of the African American community who have used our general dating service have been requesting that we add something more specific to race, culture and religious beliefs to make it easier to find a more perfect match. Black Dating is our response to that plea.”
Lovetropolis.com would like to point out that Black Dating is not limited to strictly African Americans, but they are issuing an open invitation to all members of the black community to come and visit their new service. They are even offering free lifetime membership for anyone who signs up now and pays the $17.95 profile approval and activation fee. As a dating service still within its first year, Lovetropolis.com is offering a number of incentives to all in order to build their customer base.
“Right now the price is very low, and memberships are virtually free,” our spokesperson tells us. “We are growing fast though, so I’d suggest that anyone who wants to try our service should sign up now. With the social network platform we’re using, we’ll have to start charging at some point. Anyone who joins at this stage will never have to pay membership fees.”
The other four ethnic and religion targeted dating services offered by Lovetropolis.com are Latin Dating, Asian Dating, Jewish Dating, and Christian Dating. Their social networking tools include webcam dating, instant messages, internal secure emails, Favorites menus, YouTube upload capability, and a variety of apps and custom features to improve the look of a profile page.
