Lane, who has been dating online for more than four years, said she is searching for companionship online because of the combination of (her) busy schedule and (her) passionate desire to find love.

Two popular black dating sites — Black and Black People — each report a rise in the number of black women using their services, though representatives could not give profile counts.
Lane is among the growing numbers of single black women involved in online dating.
According to a recent News study, about 42 percent of black women have never been married twice the percentage of white women.
If nothing else, online dating allows singles to meet people they otherwise wouldnt have met, said Armstrong, even if they dont form an intimate relationship.
