Branded Content by Cosmic Press

There are plenty of online dating platforms out there aimed at young adults – but what about if you’re a young single from a minority group: maybe you’re from the Muslim, trans, or disabled communities.

Happily, there are now niche dating sites on the market catering to your unique needs and preferences, all geared to help you find the love or friendship you deserve. We round up the best of them below.

BlackPeople Meet

Designed exclusively for black singles looking to find romance, BlackPeopleMeet is geared towards those aged up to forty-five years old. This platform is one of the largest black dating sites in the US, meaning it boasts a huge database – which equals more chance of finding your perfect match!

Sign-up is easy, and the site will take you step by step through the process of creating your dating photos and adding pictures. As well as suggesting daily matches, users can also manually search and deploy a variety of filters to find their special someone.

Audio, video and live chat options are available once you’ve found someone you’d like to connect with, and you can also send video messages or ‘flirts’ to break the ice. Subscriptions are priced from just $2.99 a month, and users can choose from a one-month, three-month, or six-month plan.


Muzz is a popular dating site for young, single Muslims who want to connect with a potential significant other who shares their values, heritage, and traditions. Boasting six million members (and rising), Muzz has become one of the biggest dating platforms used by the young Muslim community and has been featured in articles that have appeared in The Washington Post, TechCrunch, and more.

Users can set parameters relating to, for example, sect, ethnicity, and religious observance to help them discover the most appropriate matches – plus, Muzz is the only dating platform that allows members to include their chaperone (known as their Wall) in their dating conversations.

The site is also specifically geared to support Halal dating and is totally free to use.

Black Cupid

Exclusively geared to young black singles (up to the age of about forty-five), Black Cupid is an easy-to-use, intuitive dating site that allows you to create a highly detailed profile, so you can really let your personality shine through! There’s a nifty side-by-side feature to compare a potential match’s suitability by looking at, for example, their interests, hobbies, and dating preferences next to your own so you can see, at a glance, how well you could match.

You can create a profile and review your matches for free, but users will need to pay for a subscription to be able to send messages and access the full range of tools and features offered by Black Cupid.

My Special Match

This dating platform is designed to help those with disabilities or special needs (specifically young adults) to find love and has grown to become one of the most popular sites of its kind in the US.

The site features a range of features, including tutorials to help users set up their profiles and unique matching tools for those wanting to find matches who share interests or have a similar disability. The video message and chat options offer a great way to communicate with other like-minded members, whether with a view to developing a romance or finding new friendships.


If you’re a young single who identifies as a woman and is looking to connect with other women, then Her could be the perfect dating site for you! It features tools to help you match with either potential love interests or friends and works similarly to a social media feed.

As well as creating a dating profile, members can post information about their likes, dislikes, and everyday lives to create a dynamic overview of their personalities and interests. Her offers a free basic tier, but users must upgrade to a paid membership to unlock the full range of tools and features.


Scruff has been designed for young gay, bi, trans, and queer men and is consistently rated as one of the best and safest dating apps for members of these communities who want to find love, friendship – or simply some flirtatious fun!

The range of customizable features allows users to find those with shared interests either locally or around the world, and message history, videos, and images can sync across all devices, so nothing can get lost!

The site boasts a global user-based over fifteen million strong and puts a strong emphasis on security; plus, 24/7 support is available to its members should they need it. Scruff has a free basic tier, and a paid subscription will allow access to its full range of features for finding love.

The Takeaway

Whatever your background, as a young single, the perfect dating site exists for you. The beauty of niche dating platforms is that they cut out the frustration of receiving matches that are consistently incompatible but instead allow you to focus on finding your perfect potential significant other.
