BlackGentry is a members-only dating app designed for ambitious and intentional Black singles.
We are a classy community of singles who have themselves together and have high standards. Every profile is reviewed by the membership committee before being accepted. This way you get to be part of a group of quality singles who want something real.
Prospective members can download the app and submit an application. Once submitted, applications are placed on a waitlist and are reviewed by the membership committee. The membership committee looks for quality and detailed profiles with clear images. An applicant’s status can change from waitlist to accepted at any time.
Our community values are kindness, respect, integrity and growth. Our mission is to provide an online community that makes it easier for Black singles to establish healthier connections and relationships. Any profile that does not represent these values are rejected and removed.
All users can chat with their matches for free and also send a limited number of Direct Messages per day (messages to people you haven’t matched with yet). Users can choose to subscribe to Deluxe or VIP to enable more features.

Ratings and Reviews
The app is absolutely great and needed
First of all, I will start by saying that I am a Black women who has used a lot of dating apps such as tinder, hinge, bumble etc and my experience has been terrible on those apps. I received disrespectful messages from men who were only looking for a hook up.
Finding BlackGentry changed my feelings on dating apps and it is currently the only dating app I use. I saw an ad on IG and I follow their page and I have been in touch with customer service as I initially needed help and they were helpful and truly are passionate about creating an app for us and by us. Since joining I have seen a lot of improvements in the quality of men on the app as well as the stability of the app. I have also met decent men on the app over the past year. One of which I dated for a while. It ended so I came back and I am supriswd at all the new features. I absolutely love the restaurants feature and I see there is now a lot of members. I literally got 50 likes my first day on the app from DECENT black men.
Great Job BlackGentry. We truly need to support apps and company’s that make products for us by us and this company is an example of one doing things right and for the right reason.

Thank you. We are happy you are enjoy the app.
App is GREAT overall!!
I found the app after seeing an ad on IG and thought to give it a try and so far it has been really cool. One thing that sets it apart is the selfie verification. It really made me feel secure to know that the people on the app are real. I have ran into many fake profiles on other dating apps and got tired of wasting swipes on fake people. The other thing I like about it is that it is very detailed and professional. The deluxe membership really gives you a lot of options because I don’t want to swipe all day so it’s great to just search for people and I like changing my location when i travel so I can meet people. The app crashes sometimes but I see that they update it often and fix stuff. So far, it’s a great app and I am meeting decent men and having good conversations. Definitely check it out.
The absolutely worst dating app. They advertise “ambitious black singles” but there is no special screening different from other apps so u are literally getting the same ppl I would get from any other app. Also you can’t see who likes you unless you upgrade and and not a lot of men I’ve seen on here are willing to upgrade to match and communicate with you. This is a fairly new service and after 4 days of a paid subscription I was given a message there were no other profiles for me to view. Again, the advertisement makes you believe you will meet a higher caliber mate but there is no screening or requirements that make this app any different from others and if u don’t upgrade to a paid subscription so many features are blocked making this a full waste of time.
Edit: I’ve read the developers comment and of course it’s their job to try to make the app seem good but essentially it’s no different than any others that all functions are free. You can send a very limited amount of messages and u can’t see who likes YOU.I’ve seen the exact same ppl I’ve seen on FB dating, BLK etc.
That’s FINE but the advertisement is very misleading. I agree with the person who commented the app is boring. So much so I deleted the app with time still left on the monthly subscription I purchased.
A waste of time and money.

The core functionalities of the app are free to use. All users can swipe and chat with their matches. We even let us send DMs for free without matching. There is no way for you to tell who is a subscriber and who is not. Many of our success stories have been from free users.
The membership committee reviews and approve profiles and we reject hundreds of profiles every day. We have a list of over 20 reasons why we might reject a profile listed on our website. This also helps to keep the app safer. There is no way we can cater to every ones criteria. We understand that every one has different preferences so we provide filters and a search functionality so each individual can search based on their preference. We also recently introduced a Professional module where users have to provide their LinkedIn and be approved to get access. Users in this module can see other professionals. So we have an approval process to get on the app and yet another approval process to get into Professionals module. No other dating app has this.
Lastly, the number of profiles you see depends on your location, filters you set and how many profiles you have already seen. No dating app has an infinite number of people. We are one of the largest dating apps designed for the community and are consistently ranked in the top apps. Similar to other apps, you can run out users but we add thousands of new users every day.
