I always hear older black men talk about BlackPlanet in the early 00s and how it was a great way to meet women cause internet dating was never seen before. Have any of u ladies with an online presence during the early 00s-mid 00s ever meet men on BP and was it better than today's sites such as blackpeoplemeet, okcupid, etc?

Yea Blackplanet was this ish back on the early 2000's. From what I’ve heard everyone was on it for "networking" purposes etc. Unfortunately in 2004 while browsing on BP I found out my father was cheating on my mother. I tried to tell her, but she didn't believe me. So I left it alone.

Meme0887 your adverting the question. Lol. But its cool if you did. I did too a few yrs ago. I wasn't specifically looking to meet guys, I was just bored, and didn't expect anything to come of it. I had nothing but bad experiances on that site. In one situation I seriously feared for my life cause dude was short, evil, and bat sh*t crazy.

I was in middle and high school when BP was hot.

It was like the MySpace of that day and age. Random men and boys trying to chat and holla.

I never met anyone in person. The one person I was supposed to meet, I got there early and he was short, unattractive, and dressed bummy and dirty as hell. I bucked before he even saw me, smh.

There was another dude who kept in touch with me for YEARS, but he always avoided meeting in person. Hindsight 20/20, he was either catfishing or married.

I didn't even know about black planet until the sh*t was done. I had heard of myspace but it was already played by the time I even thought of coming up with an account.
