What I Did and Didn’t Do To Help My Friend Find The Woman He’s Going To Marry

August 14th, 2012 14 comments

Well, it worked.

Over a year ago, I had this crazy idea to use my blog as a way to help my friend Jhirmack find a woman he could marry.

(For those who are new to this website or don’t remember exactly what I’m talking about, you can read these posts: “WifeFinder”)

And then this happened over the weekend.

Nothing about this was a joke and there were no guarantees it would work. I just thought, why the hell not? My friend was moving to a small town to establish his career and I knew the pickings would be slim. In the years I knew him, I witnessed his own tough luck when it came to relationships. I didn’t want to see him settle and I knew he was at the point where he was ready to find that one woman with whom he could spend the rest of his life. Considering a lot of women from around the country visit my site, I thought maybe through this site, I can introduce him to some women who were willing to meet a good guy.

We drew over 40 applicants, which was shocking to both me and him. All of the women brought something to the table, and within a couple of days of the first post, my boy had what my Pop’s used to call “good problems.”

But much to my displeasure, my boy had his eyes on one girl in particular. Over 40 applicants, and my boy had just one girl in mind, just one. I told him he was crazy, that for the first time in a long time, he didn’t have to settle on one, but rather, get to know many.

He didn’t listen.

“I’m telling you man, this the one right here.” Those were his words to me, and after failing to convince him to give the other women a fair shake, I told him he could do what he wanted. So he did.

I’m Trying To Find My Friend His Future Wife Phase III

October 20th, 2011 10 comments

For those who don’t remember, back in June, I put out a search for the future wife of one of my best friends. I wrote:

I really am trying to find a woman my best friend can potentially marry and I am all about using this platform to aid in that search. What I’m not trying to do is establish myself as some sort of matchmaker. That’s not my game here. All I’m trying to do is be a good friend to a man who I consider a brother.

Since then, everywhere I go and every new reader I meet asks me how things went and I’m pleased to annouce everything has worked out beautifully…thus far.

I’m Trying To Find My Friend His Future Wife: Phase II

June 22nd, 2011 9 comments

Well, this has been interesting.

As we all know, a little over a week ago, I announced my efforts to help my friend find his future wife via this blog. The response was more than I ever expected it to be. The night before I went live with the first post, I told my friend not to expect more than 10 women to respond. As it turns out, I suck at estimating these types of things. We received way  more than 10 submissions, and I must say to the ladies who submitted their photos and expressed interest, a standing ovation to you all.

Both in the comments and offline, there were still a lot of questions people had about this process. Especially after we went live with the podcast. Most people intiially thought this was fun and games, some people still think it is, but the honest truth is, I’m not doing this for laughs and I’m not doing this for kicks.

Poppin’ Questions Podcast 31: An Interview With My Friend For Whom I’m Trying To Find A Wife

June 17th, 2011 7 comments

In a special Poppin’ Questions Podcast, Jozen talks to his best friend about their search for his best friend’s wife. The two discuss his stance on dating as a pastor, a little bit of his family background, and try to answer all the questions people have asked since they started the search. The interview was done over the phone, so please excuse any feedback or sound issues.

I’m Trying To Find My Friend His Future Wife

NOTE FROM JOZEN: PLEASE DISREGARD THE DIRECTIONS IN THE POST AS THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS HAS PASSED AND WE HAVE MOVED ONTO PHASE II. IF YOU CHOOSE TO SUBMIT A PHOTO ANYWAY, WE WON’T RESPOND…OR MAYBE ONE OF MY OTHER FRIENDS WILL! HAHA!

This isn’t as deep as one might think, but a little deeper than others might assume.

I really am trying to find a woman my best friend can potentially marry and I am all about using this platform to aid in that search. What I’m not trying to do is establish myself as some sort of matchmaker. That’s not my game here. All I’m trying to do is be a good friend to a man who I consider a brother.

Far too often, people assume men don’t want to see their good friends walk down the aisle, and there are certain friends of mine who if they took that step I’d look at them as if they were crazy.

But not this friend of mine. He’s different not in terms of a personality but in terms of what he wants. Trust me, he’s ready to find a woman with whom he can spend the rest of his life, and if he wasn’t serious about it, then he wouldn’t allow me to take to my blog and help him out.

He and I have no idea if this is going to work or not. We’re just taking a chance here. As I always like to say if one way hasn’t been working, try another way. Well, for him, he’s been doing things the old-fashioned way and unfortunately it hasn’t been successful, so we came up with the bright idea of utilizing this blog to see what it gets us. I have a lot of female readers, and I’m guessing a great deal of these female readers are single and at a point where they too are into the idea of finding that one.

Well, ladies to whom this applies, my friend could very well be that one. If we met in real life, and he was around, I’d introduce you to him, but since that isn’t an option right now, allow me to tell you a few things about him in the form of some Frequently Asked Questions because I’m assuming if you’ve made it this far, you want to know more.

These are all based on questions I’ve already received from those who know about my mission and some I’m anticipating. All the questions are answered by yours truly on his behalf, so if you want to know more about him than what is provided in the answers to the questions below, I encourage you to email me at INFO@UNTILIGETMARRIED.COM. SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY!
