” Have fun sloshing around in the gray-black slush that lines our fine streets in wintertime (not to mention the resultant salt ring). Which is why one of the Jewish accomplishments I’m most proud of—right up there with Rabbi Nechunya ben Ha Kana figuring out the universe was 15.3 billion years old in the 1st century—was that we realized two-and-a-half millenia ago that Valentine’s Day works a lot better in the summer.
Our patented Compatibility Matching System® is the key differentiation between our service and that of traditional black dating services, and it is the main driver of our matching success.
The e Harmony Matching System narrows the field from thousands of black singles to match you with a select group of compatible single black men or women with whom you can build relationships that last. We realize it can be a challenge to meet other singles with whom you share common goals, interests, and backgrounds within your geographical area, and e Harmony can help.
So I dated a non-Jewish girl for eight years, with full disclosure on the table that marriage wasn’t happening before a dip.
If I couldn’t find a Jew to marry, then I guess I’d just have to make one.
(Parents, now would probably be a good time to stop by your kids summer camps. After all, I’d seen her profile and saw that she had checked “Reform,” just as she saw that I had checked “Orthodox.” So, clearly, a relationship between us was not something that was going to work out.
However, we both had resources that would aid the other in their specific branch of diversity work, and we were more than willing to share the wealth.
We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
We, at e Harmony, are committed to helping black men and women find love that lasts, we are confident in our ability to do so.
That relationship didn’t work out, and the time I had spent in it resigned me to the fact that I didn’t have another decade to hang around waiting for someone to decide to convert or not.
Next time around, I needed to find someone who was Jewish from the get-go. It doesn’t get any better when Jews of Color look online for love either.
But seriously, whose genius idea was it to place a holiday celebrating passion and romance and love in the dead of winter’s cold, cold heart?
