Online dating is the natural evolution of courtship in an era where social interaction is more likely to take place over a keyboard, than a cup of coffee.
Gone are the days of chance encounters and love letters mailed in earnest.
What does Love Crosses Borders have to do with dating?
Unlike other websites about dating, Love Crosses Borders originated from a very thriving multicultural Facebook page, with dating and married interracial couples, mixed race and biracial families from all over the world.
It highlights and supports international, intercultural and interracial relationships.
Love is not based on race, culture, class or where you were born.
In spite of the egalitarianism that permeates millennial culture, and wide-spread acceptance of interracial couples, on-line dating is anything but color-blind.“We interviewed some women, for example, who were on these mass market sites,” says Brian, “And they were getting harassed on the sites to some degree, overly-sexualized by guys on there.
Like Tinder, BAE has a double opt-in feature, meaning potential suitors can only engage via chat if there is a match.
Why does Love Crosses Borders offer a website about the best interracial dating sites?
For many years the subject of black and white mixed and other bi-racial or interracial marriages and unions was taboo and highly discouraged on both sides.
BAE utilizes campus ambassadors, college students who help the team promote the app among Black college students and alumni, while receiving intern experience, sometimes even credits, and contacts in exchange.“One of the things for us,” says Justin, “especially as a team of all people of color, is to provide meaningful opportunities when we visit campuses to talk about how to start a business, how to build an app, or other aspirations that [students] may have.”The BAE app is available for download on the i Phone and Android devices.
