  1. Usage and Subscriptions

To fully utilize or access the Services, you must purchase, or choose, from one (1) of three (3) types of User subscriptions to our Services to become a User (“User”) as outlined below.

  1. A Client Member Subscription (“Client Subscription”) grants a User (“Client“) access to the full range of features and products within the Services. This subscription includes the services of a Real Black Love matchmaker. Matchmaking services consist of a Welcome Meeting with a matchmaker, searching the candidate database, photoshoot, screening potential candidates for dates, date planning and date feedback. Searches are conducted via the Real Black Love proprietary platform technology.  Additional information on the Client Subscription can be found in the Service Agreement.
  2. A Candidate Member Subscription (“Candidate Subscription”) grants a User (“Candidate“)  inclusion into the database for Priority Matching with Real Black Love Clients, as defined in our Service Agreement. Matchable Members are screened for planned dates with Clients and receive post-date feedback. Dates are not guaranteed. A Candidate Member Subscription may be upgraded to a Client Subscription at any time.  Additional information on the Candidate Member Subscriptions can be found in the Service Agreement.
  3. In addition, you may also be invited by a Real Black Love matchmaker to establish a subscription that is free of charge and allows you (“Recruit“) to be included in the Real Black Love database for matching with Real Black Love Clients. (“Recruit Subscription”). Recruits are screened for planned dates with Clients and may, but are not guaranteed to, receive post-date feedback. Dates are not guaranteed. A Recruit Subscription may be upgraded to a Client Subscription or Membership Subscription at any time.

Some of Real Black Love’s subscriptions for services may be subject to automatic renewal of the subscription, e.g., a month-to-month subscription with automatic renewal, or an annual subscription with automatic renewal. IF YOU PURCHASE A SUBSCRIPTION SUBJECT TO AUTOMATIC RENEWAL, YOUR SUBSCRIPTION WILL RENEW FOR ANOTHER TERM OF THE SAME DURATION AT REAL BLACK LOVE’S THEN-CURRENT RATES FOR SUCH SUBSCRIPTION, UNLESS YOU ACTIVELY CANCEL THE SUBSCRIPTION. To avoid charges for a new subscription period, you must cancel the subscription before the end of the then-current subscription period by sending an email indicating your intent to cancel your subscription to the Real Black Love Customer Success Team (“Customer Success”) at hello@realblacklove.com.  If you cancel your subscription, you may use your subscription until the end of the period you last paid for, but you will not be eligible for a prorated refund, and your subscription will not be renewed when that period expires.  You will be given notice of changes in the pricing of your subscription and an opportunity to cancel. If Real Black Love changes these prices and you do not cancel your subscription, you agree that you will be charged at Real Black Love’s then-current pricing for the subscription.

Once you’ve registered on the Website, the account you create is for your personal use only. You may not authorize others to use your account, and you may not assign or otherwise transfer your account to any other person or entity. Illegal and/or unauthorized use of the Website, including but not limited to collecting personal information, usernames, or email addresses of users by electronic or other means for the purpose of sending unsolicited email, unauthorized embedding, unauthorized framing of or linking to the Website may be investigated, and appropriate legal action will be taken, including without limitation, civil, criminal, and injunctive relief. Real Black Love has the right to investigate and refer you to applicable law enforcement authorities if you have misused the Services, taken any actions in defiance of these Terms of Use or the Privacy Policy, or if you have conducted actions that are fraudulent, abusive, harmful, unlawful or illegal.

  1. Communication and Privacy

Real Black Love, or any Real Black Love associate or representative, will never ask you to meet in person for any purpose whatsoever.

  1. Interactions with Your Matchmaker

Successful matchmaker collaborations are only possible when Clients trust their matchmakers’ strategies and choices. If: (a) you consistently or repeatedly refuse an introduction to selected matches; (b) you exhibit a problematic or repeated lack of availability to either the matchmaker or to your matches; (c) matches report to us that you behaved poorly; (d) you provided false or misleading information to either us or to selected matches; (e) you consistently engage in poor conduct towards your matchmaker; or (f) you violate any of the terms of any of your agreements with us, we will work with you in good faith to try to promptly resolve such issues.  However, if we are unable to resolve these issues with you, we reserve the right to terminate your account.  You will then lose any unused matches and you will not be entitled to a refund for the Services.

Real Black Love is not liable for the conduct of any individual impersonating a Real Black Love matchmaker or representative and is not responsible for the behavior of any user. 

  1. Interactions with Other Users

Though Real Black Love strives to encourage a respectful user experience, it is not responsible for the conduct of any User. You agree to use caution in all interactions with other Users.

YOU ARE FULLY AND SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR COMMUNICATIONS AND INTERACTIONS WITH OTHER USERS. BACKGROUND RESEARCH AND OTHER TOOLS DO NOT GUARANTEE YOUR SAFETY. IF YOU ARE IN IMMEDIATE DANGER, PLEASE CALL 911 OR YOUR LOCAL EMERGENCY SERVICES NUMBER. IF YOU’VE HAD A BAD EXPERIENCE WITH A MATCH OR USER FROM REAL BLACK LOVE, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO REPORT THOSE LLCIDENTS OR INDIVIDUALS TO OUR TRUST & SAFETY TEAM, SO WE CAN FURTHER INVESTIGATE AND TAKE ACTION: HELLO@REALBLACKLOVE.COM.  WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO PRACTICE THE FOLLOWING SAFETY GUIDELINES, AMONG OTHER PRECAUTIONS:

  • Your matchmaker will never orchestrate a date in a non-public or remote location. If someone pressures you to change locations to an isolated place or prematurely moves the date to their house, end the date and leave. Let your matchmaker know.
  • Always protect your personal information (e.g., address, Social Security number) and avoid sharing it with people you do not know. Don’t reveal family members’ names, places you frequently visit, or your birth date. It’s okay to take it slow.
  • E-mail or text with caution and only after confident in your knowledge of someone. Until you get to know someone, insist on communicating via the Services and do not exchange your personal contact information.
  • Never send money or financial information online. If another Real Black Love Client asks you for money, please report it to us immediately.
  • Also, please immediately report anyone who violates our Terms of Use. Here are some examples of violations:
  • Requesting money
  • Underage users
  • Sending harassing, threatening, or offensive messages
  • Behaving inappropriately during or after a date
  • Creating fraudulent profiles
  • Spamming or soliciting, including providing links to commercial websites, or attempting to sell products or services
  • Tell a friend or family member about your date plans, including when and where you’re going, with whom, and when you expect to return.
  • Carry your fully charged cell phone with you at all times.
  • Drive yourself or use a ride-share app to get to and from your date location, so you can leave if and when you want to.
  • You know your limits with drug and alcohol consumption better than anyone.  If your date tries to pressure you to use drugs or drink more than you’re comfortable with, end the date.
  • Never leave drinks or personal items unattended. 
  • Don’t ignore your own instincts. If a situation is making you uneasy, don’t hesitate to call a friend or alert your server.  It’s okay to leave the date immediately if you feel uncomfortable.
  • It is reasonable and within your rights to have an honest conversation with a partner about sexual contact before having it, including asking the last time someone was tested for STIs.
  • When used properly and consistently, condoms and other protection can reduce the risk of contracting or passing on an STI, such as HIV. However, it is possible to get certain STIs, like herpes or HPV, from contact with your partner’s skin even when using a condom.
  • All sexual activity must start with consent. Verbal communication can help you and your partner ensure that you respect each other’s boundaries. Remember that consent can be withdrawn at any time. Never proceed if your partner is unsure, or if they are unable to consent due to alcohol or drugs.

Any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms of Use or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof, including the determination of the scope or applicability of this Agreement to arbitrate, shall be determined by arbitration in San Francisco, California before one arbitrator. The arbitration shall be administered pursuant to JAMS’s Streamlined Arbitration Rules and Procedures. The arbitrator shall have exclusive authority to resolve any arbitrability issues including any dispute over these Terms of Use or this arbitration provision’s scope, application, meaning, and enforceability. The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court. Any award of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court having jurisdiction. This clause shall not preclude parties from seeking provisional remedies in aid of arbitration from a court of appropriate jurisdiction.  The one exception to the exclusivity of arbitration is that either party has the right to bring an individual claim against the other in a small claims court of competent jurisdiction, or, if filed in arbitration, the responding party may request that the dispute proceed in small claims court instead if the claim is within the jurisdiction of the small claims court.  If the request to proceed in small claims court is made before an arbitrator has been appointed, any open arbitration between the parties shall be administratively closed.  If an arbitrator has been appointed, the arbitrator shall determine whether the dispute should remain in arbitration or instead be decided in small claims court.  Arbitration shall be conducted by written submissions only, unless either you or Real Black Love invoke the right to an oral hearing before the arbitrator.

Any dispute regarding these Terms of Use, your use of the Services, your relationship with Real Black Love, or any action contemplated by these Terms of Use shall be governed by the laws of the State of North Carolina without regard to its conflict of law rules.  You acknowledge that these Terms of Use evidence a transaction involving interstate commerce.  Notwithstanding the governing law provision contained in this paragraph with respect to applicable substantive law, the arbitration provisions in these Terms of Use shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act.

Additionally, except where prohibited by law, as a condition of using the Services, you agree that any and all disputes and causes of action arising out of or connected to the Services shall be resolved individually, without resort to any form of class action, and that you shall not commence, maintain, or participate in any class action, class arbitration, or any other representative action or proceeding against Real Black Love.


You also agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising from or related to the use of the Services must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or be forever barred. The failure of either party to exercise in any respect any right provided for herein shall not be deemed a waiver of any further rights hereunder.

  1. Severability
