Keepler's Community

The Keepler community is an open digital space where humans can find support, understanding, and belonging on their romantic journeys. The community welcomes individuals interested in personal growth, self-awareness, and intentional love.

We are an inclusive online community. We believe in equity across the spectrum of human experience. We recognize that many groups have been systematically and functionally marginalized through in person and online communities.

In dating, this can be particularly daunting as people with marginalized identities often fear for their physical safety and online security, and have oftentimes had negative past experiences. Keepler is dedicated to building an inclusive online relationship culture. We know that in order to do this, we must enforce standards of civility that recognize and respond to harassment and discrimination. We do not tolerate racism, sexism, ableism, or any other type of hate on our platform.

Levels of Comfort

Definitions

  • Hate Speech: Vitriol directed at someone on the basis of their identity or membership in a particular group.
  • Consent: Permission for something to happen or agreement to do something.

Our enforcement policy was crafted in order to protect members like you. The purpose is to maintain safety and trust within the community and those you come into contact with offline.Imperfections are real and infractions happen. We understand that misspeaking, misunderstanding, and misperception can happen during the journey of love. Here is our breakdown of our enforcement policy:

  • Step One: A written warning detailing the infraction as well as why it’s unacceptable.
  • Step Two: A second infraction will result in removal from the community.

If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to report behavior, please attach a screenshot or direct link to the infraction and share with our team here: community@lovekeepler.com.

Guidelines

To get and give the most of this community, we ask that you adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Be Welcoming: We expect all users to create a welcoming and inclusive environment. Content that is intended to harm, hurt, harass, or otherwise distress others will not be tolerated.
  • Get Consent: Consent is mandatory. If you are unsure if your advances are welcome, ask first. For example, nudity has a time and place. That place is only after consent has been given. Unsolicited nudity won’t be tolerated on our platform. Get consent. Every time. We ask that you designate with a warning when a story is particularly graphic, sexual, or similar on a public channel with a NSFW “not safe for work”, Trigger Warning, Heads-Up.
  • Be Honest: We are a platform for building authentic relationships. We totally understand wanting to put your best foot forward. Pick your best photo, just make sure it’s a photo of you! Talk about your job you love, just be honest about your salary! It will set you up to go further and succeed on our platform.
  • Be Great in Person: This agreement doesn’t stop at your home button. Conduct that breaches our code during in-person meetups, or other contacts can also be grounds for remediation.
  • Be Compassionate: Being kind, respectful, & empathetic is the foundation that will keep this community running smoothly and garner high value. We do not tolerate: bullying, doxxing, trolling, or hate speech. If uncertain, refrain from commenting; instead, please ask a community manager via DM.
  • Be Culturally Aware: Recognize that all people do not come from the same background or set of assumptions. Culture goes beyond ethnicity and may include gender culture, LGBTQ culture, generational culture and more; remain open to clarifying your statements, perspectives, or points of view.
  • Be Forgiving: This is the first app of its kind in the dating realm and mistakes will be made. Remain forgiving, be honest and direct in your feedback or advice, and give everyone the space to unlearn and readjust. We love to see members practicing level 3 growth: being brave, being vulnerable, and being authentic while also honoring each other’s boundaries. We understand that to adjust the status quo, we must be part of that shift toward harmony, honesty, and accountability.

The Don'ts

  • Personal Info: Don’t post your personal information, or anyone else’s. Things like your social security number, financial information, or passwords should never be shared here.
  • Violence: Don’t post violent content. Don't engage in violence on our platform or in person. This includes content that is gory, triggering or terroristic.
