The Short Version: Built in 2014 as a way for West Indian singles living across the globe to connect, quickly grew into a popular online dating site that now attracts people of all races and nationalities worldwide. Today, WiLime remains committed to its large West Indian demographic while catering to an increasingly multicultural crowd. The site’s widespread use is due, in large part, to its sensitivity to the cultural challenges of dating, intuitive profile setup and management, and a sincere user base looking to form meaningful friendships and long-lasting romantic relationships.Share15

There is no shortage of generic dating apps in today’s crowded online dating space. And, while millions of users have met their mates on these platforms, many singles have found it difficult to pick out a match from the seemingly endless stream of profiles general dating apps present. These platforms randomly introduce people to each other and often don’t take personal values, nationality, and cultural background into consideration.

Luckily, a trend has sprung up to remedy this problem. Niche dating apps have become popular among singles who long to find a partner who shares their same cultural heritage. And, for those of West Indian descent, has been the answer.

The WiLime founders realized there was a demand in the market for a place West Indian singles could find each other, chat, and form meaningful relationships. So they rolled up their sleeves and created the site.

“Initially, when WiLime came out, we were gearing toward people in the Caribbean,” the WiLime team said. “Everyone was complaining that there were no online dating platforms for West Indians. So we did some research and put something out there. ”

Entering its fourth year, WiLime is going strong. The WiLime team told us that, though the site still caters to its West Indian demographic, people of different nationalities and cultures throughout the world are turning to WiLime because of how effective it is in helping members form friendships and lasting romantic relationships.
