Frequently Asked Questions
What is the purpose of asking for donations?
juLuv's unique hybrid model of matchmaking takes into account the fact that matchmaking is typically a costly service. juLuv prides itself on giving the gift of a one-on-one match to those who may not be in a position to pay. Through donations from those who believe in our direct approach to continuity, we will be able to provide the continued opportunity for complimentary matches to be made.
If I sign up to be a Guest, when can I expect to be contacted?
As a juLuv Guest, there is no guarantee when you will be contacted -- this all depends on when we find the right potential match for you. Please check in with us if you have any questions or additional information about yourself that you'd like to share (other than what you listed on our form). We will be in touch with you when we find you a match.
Why do you need to choose my restaurant for me if I get matched? Why can't I schedule my own date?
After careful consideration, we have found that setting up an introduction is actually much smoother, quicker and less stressful when we schedule it for you. We work hard to ensure that both parties are happy with our choice of venue. Our form asks for your preferred cuisines as well as what part of town you live in, so we definitely take these things into account. In addition, we also factor in restaurant noise level, price and ability to park. If you have additional requests that you would like to make, please be sure to indicate this in the notes section of our form.
How many Guest matches are actively being made?
The number of Guest matches being made is approximately 10 per month (i.e. 10 matches made in total, so 20 individuals served). However, this number may fluctuate based on time, number of individuals in the database, as well as the amount of support that juLuv receives to continue offering a complimentary matching option.

How much does it cost to be a Client?
Client fees vary depending on the services that you are interested in receiving. We have several package options in a range of prices. If you are interested in the possibility of becoming a Client, please contact us for the full list of services and fees.
If I become a Client and I meet individuals through juLuv, but do not wind up meeting someone for a long-term relationship, do I still have to pay for the service?
Yes. If our service is successful in introducing you to the like-minded potential matches that we have agreed to, your fee is non-refundable. If, however, we are unable to meet our end of the agreement and cannot find suitable potential matches for you, we will either partially, or fully, refund your fee.
General Dating Questions
What makes this different than other Jewish online dating sites?
juLuv has no database for you to search through. juLuv is private and does not publicize who is in the database. We are not an online dating site, but rather, a matchmaking service that aims to find great matches for like-minded singles -- without any work for you!
What if I am just not interested in someone that you try to set me up with?
We work hard to match up like-minded individuals who are looking for similar things in a relationship. While we certainly encourage you to trust our recommendations and be open-minded, there is no obligation should we attempt to set you up with someone who you are simply not interested in meeting.
If I meet someone through juLuv and I am not interested in seeing them again, whose job is it to "break it off"?
If you don't want to see your match again, it is up to you as to whether you would like to be the one to call it off or whether you'd like us to do that for you. As matchmakers, we are comfortable with handling this aspect -- we ask that you please just let us know so that we know how to best proceed.
Who is expected to pay for the first date?
There are no rules in terms of who is expected to pay for the date. While traditionally there is an expectation that the man picks up the check, this is not necessarily a practice that juLuv either promotes or opposes. We feel that the most polite way of handling the check is for both parties to at least offer, regardless of who actually winds up paying.
