Years and years of identity interrogations, “tolerance” being mistaken as being “acceptance” and just plain ol’ bona-fide racism tend to do that to a person.

Valentine’s Day is a thoroughly ridiculous holiday.
This year, Jewish Valentine’s Day, otherwise known as Tu B’Av, begins night and will probably be accompanied by the usual glut of singles events and all-white parties. Honest.) I met my wife because of Tu B’Av, actually. We’d met on an online dating site and were meeting up for professional, non-romantic networking purposes.
(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.
(I’m not exactly sure why my profile was deleted, and I never got an answer from the site’s admins asking.) And that’s how and why JOCFlock was born.
Because no one looking for love should really have to be put through a crucible of completely unrelated pain first.
