Swirl Date and Marry has noticed that more black women are taking the chance at online dating. Some give up, some hang in there and actually find their future husbands. You can meet a mate almost anywhere like at the supermarket, library or bookstore, coffee shop, at a bar, or online. Although online dating is just one of many ways to meet other singles, it is one of the easiest ways to get yourself out there. There is still a stigma associated with online dating but that is fading fast due to the success of many couples who met online. Most eventually marry and many even have families and are happy.
We are so pleased to hear that IMF friend Millie H.met her husband online. They had actually met before, lost contact and reconnected. Once they realized they had met before, they were dating and started a relationship. Over about a year and a half, Millie and her hubby became a couple, engaged and the rest is history as they say. Millie is a Jamaican native and where else could she marry the love of her life but on the tropical island paradise?
Freda shares her story: Jeremy and I were together for 4 years before marrying in July 2015. We lot friends and some family members due to our decision to be together. Our older son’s name is Jaden, as you can see we were expecting but now have another little baby boy. Jeremy and I met through mutual friends. From the first day Jeremy and I met, we felt the connection.
Walking down the aisle, between my two mothers – Rose, the woman who’d given birth to me, and Renee Loux who’d adopted me, I couldn’t have been happier. My identical twin sister Teyolla, Tee for short, and I had talked about this day from as early as I could remember. My only sadness was that Tee, 20, couldn’t watch me get married, because she was waiting outside the door, preparing to get hitched herself.
Meet Thomas and Nirmala Springer. They have such a cute little story and a cute little family! Thomas shares: My wife Nirmala and I found each other on Facebook. I am American and she is Indian. We followed her family’s customs and waited one year (courtship) then were engaged for one year then were married. Nirmala had a traditional Hindu wedding. We have been married almost 3 years and have a beautiful daughter.
Brennan Shares: I’m a happily married man and a recent father. My wife’s name is Ivy, a half-Panamanian and half-Mexican young woman. Her Panamanian mother has been remarried to a Caucasian man for nearly 20 years. So her parents were not remotely concerned about their daughter dating a white man.
We originally met over 4 years ago briefly. We reconnected a year and a half ago and since then my life has never been the same. I’m biracial mixed (Italian and Black Foot Native and African American. Jimmy is a pure southern gentlemen we are getting married in March 2015 and I cannot wait to become his wife!
I first met Paula when I came across her post on Weddingbee.com talking about she and Mr. B., her hubby moving to his country, Macedonia. I introduced myself and the next thing you know we were friends on Facebook. That was 2013. I have gotten to know Paula over the past year through our posts and pictures. As a black American woman married, living and working in Eastern Europe, Paula’s story is especially fascinating. She is holding it down for the sisters over there and doing a fantastic job of it I might add.
This is another online dating success story. Chris and Masa met in February 2013 on Match.com. Chris was looking for and found a guy who met all her criteria. She was looking for a quality, marriage minded Asian man who wanted a family. Masa on the other hand was not having so much luck and was about ready to close down his account when he got Chris’ email. From Chris’ profile, she was too good to be true and Masa was intrigued. He responded to Chris and they hit it off. Masa was smitten and after a few phone calls they met. Masa was everything Chris wanted and Chris was the answer to Masa’s prayers.
Where to begin… My engagement announcement yesterday has highlighted a very sensitive issue… the topic of interracial dating. Though please know that it was never an issue for me, my fiancé, our friends and family. It’s unfortunate that a few ignorant people have taken an event that every girl dreams of and turned it into a negative with their vile and ignorant comments. I won’t give this urban gossip website the benefit of being mentioned (I used to be a huge fan, by the way) but among some of the comments came the term “Sellout Negro” and other disgusting and derogatory references.
I found Krystal and Justin’s wedding on WedLuxe Magazine. I could not take my eyes off this classy couple and their Parisian and Versailles-themed wedding and reception.
We won’t go so far as to say it will happen to everyone, but we WILL say that you’re bound to find more than you bargain for – and we mean that in a good way – when you venture out past your own front door.
Chynna shares: This is my fiancé Michael. We met online in 2011 and became a couple. We will be married on 6/26/15. Below we get a wonderful look into the beginning of their life’s journey. The elegant images among fall foliage are just lovely.

In light of a recent post, I wanted to share a refreshing story of Monica L. This beautiful, scholarly sister would not let negative messages from anyone or church affect her love, happiness and future. However Monica fully credits God for allowing her and her husband’s paths to cross. I too feel meting my husband was a result of Divine Intervention. Similarly, there were no negative messages from “the black church” that affected me or any decisions I made regarding who I could, should or would marry. Right before meeting my husband, I liked a white so called Christian who was a DBR. He really was damaged beyond repair.
