For women living in the Big Apple, the dating pool can often feel small.

PEOPLE can exclusively reveal that FYI’s latest series #BlackLove, premiering in December, will follow five women in New York City as they embark on a life-changing journey to discover just what they’re doing wrong when it comes to finding true love.

These powerful women – including newly single Monet Bell from Married at First Sight – seem to paint the picture of a perfect life: They have beauty, intelligence and success … but no one to share them with.

With the guidance of relationship experts Damona Hoffman and Jack A. Daniels, the women will navigate the dating world – including returning to the scene after divorce, pursuing same-sex love and negotiating interracial relationships – all while receiving constructive feedback on what exactly they’re doing right (and wrong) when it comes to finding their soulmates.
