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.

BlackGentry Deluxe is an auto-renewable subscription service provided within the app. Activate BlackGentry Deluxe and get access to send unlimited likes, rewind profiles, hide ads, send unlimited Direct Messages, see who likes you, change locations, and see Second Chance.

Current subscription may not be cancelled during the active subscription period; however, you can manage your subscription to a higher plan and/or turn off auto-renewal by visiting your iTunes Account Settings after purchase.

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.

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.

This app is just boring

I took a chance on this app because it was FUBU and I really wanted to stay away from the big box store dating apps. I paid for the service and took time to upload a complete profile with CLEAR pics (face and full length). I was so excited to get started but once I got on the app left me feeling totally deflated! First, the questions are very vague and don’t allow you to leave enough detail or even show your personality. Some (men in my case) are just lazy and only leave one sentence or one word answers so I can’t get intrigued. Then, if you do find someone who catches your attention you can only “like” them and you can’t get back to their profile for a second look once you do this. And how do you know who’s viewing YOUR profile? There’s no way to tell if your profile is getting any traffic at all. I’m in the DC area so I know we’ve got a ton of attractive, professional singles out here who are ready to mingle but they must not be on this app! I only saw ONE person that I was interested in and I guess I have to sit back and hope he responds. Then there’s the buying of tokens even if you pay for a membership. It’s like playing Candy Crush and it’s kinda belittling in my opinion...most of the 40 and over crowd probably won’t appreciate this! Looks like I’ll be signing on to Match after all.
