The government can't keep them apart

Posted by Leticia, 13 Apr 11

Jeff never had trouble meeting people, given his gregarious nature and his line of work—he’s a snowboard instructor, drummer, and D.J. whose handle is “DJake.”  But he’d found he was most compatible with black women and he wasn’t meeting many of them in his area.  What’s more, Jeff was very eager to meet his match and knew that hoping for the occasional chance meeting might keep him waiting for a long time.

“I wanted someone to fill my lonely heart, and yesterday,” Jeff says.  So he decided to try our site.  “Within the first month, I was talking to so many ladies that I quit searching to meet new ones,” he marvels.  “Several of them are now some of my best friends.  I’ve been teaching one of the girls’ daughters how to do magic tricks!”

Kalama was getting plenty of attention of her own, but she had specific ideas about the kind of man she was looking for.  When she found Jeff’s profile, it struck her as a bit long, but fun and genuine.  She liked that Jeff knew what he wanted.  His profile declared he was “Ready for Love.”  Their personalities seemed compatible, and so did their relationship goals—both wanted to start a family, sooner rather than later.

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

There was just one wrinkle to iron out—Jeff was in Ohio and Kalama was in Africa!  Undeterred, they started talking on Skype.  This was enough for Jeff to learn to love Kalama’s laugh, her beautiful smile, and her witty sense of humor.

Jeff decided to go to Africa for a visit to see if their connection would work in real life.  The pair met in person for the first time when Jeff got off the plane in Zambia.  “When I finally met her, she was the same person as on Skype, but so beautiful,” Jeff recalls.  “Her embrace felt so much warmer than a keyboard!”

The young couple felt a little anxious at first but their nerves settled down as their conversation took off.  Jeff and his sweetheart would dance for hours at a local club, until they were the last people on the dance-floor.  Later that night, their first kiss came in the back of the cab on their way home.

Jeff would spend seven weeks with Kalama’s family.  The couple toured the area to see Africa’s wildlife in its natural habitat and visit the world-famous Victoria Falls.  Along the way, they fell madly in love.  By the time Jeff headed home, he was a married man.  Yes, it’s true—Jeff and Kalama got hitched!

Sadly, difficulties with Kalama’s immigration are keeping the couple apart for now.  But Jeff and Kalama are making plans to reunite in Africa.  In fact, they hope to visit impoverished villages in Zambia, offering children entertainment, inspiration and gifts.

“Kalama’s smile, heart and love are greater than I ever could have imagined,” Jeff says.  Something tells us that no government can keep this couple apart for long.

    Aww another favorite success story for me, i can really relate to this. I live in the United Kingdom and before i started vacating in the United States i never much thought of getting together with an American really. Though upon my first visit there i was blown away, people were so lovely, warm, welcoming and just adorable, that i was shocked, us here in the UK are not so open nor do we often take time take interest and care about strangers, it was really refreshing and many are so ambitious but yet you would never tell as they seem to be able to humble themselves and be down to earth and make you feel their equal, it was all just so refreshing. I know it sounds so cliche and probably it is not 'so rosy' everywhere in the states, hell the worst cases of racism i have heard of usually comes from the States if i am honest, we are more integrated here in the UK despite our often lack of acknowledgement of one another. But my point being every time i have been to the States i have had a wonderful time and everyone i met was warm and inviting and it piqued my interest and attraction toward Americans i suppose. Now with that found interest, naturally i wanted to explore it, but every State person who takes an interest on here so far rules me off based on distance which i find pretty closed minded, i believe it can work if you want it to and put your heart and commitment to it, why would it not. This is a typical example of finding love afar and committing to it and i think there is a lesson to be learnt here guys, don't you? I know they are still working on being able to live together but it is actually much easier in some scenarios than others. The UK is much easier tackle i should think, i do not even need a visa when i vacate to the States but rather simply a visa waver which is like 9 and it gets approved in less than a day. My suggestion guys is to think more outside the box and be open minded to ALL possibilities otherwise you could be missing out on great opportunities waiting to be explored.

    @Hani i disagree with you.For this world a genuine wife always comes from africa.But all depends on whom you met.See this there are also men and women from Europe who wants dual citizenship and also who wants to get advantage of sexiest women from Africa.You sound as if your jelousy of that gal from Zanzibar who met her soul mate.We are all looking for love else where because its hard to find people we are attracted to in our countries.

      Why did you say that you can't find people you are attracted to in your own country ? That sounds rather strange to say.

    What a lovely story! Hope it works out for the couple. A word of caution to men/women in the US on dating men/women from Africa. As I originally was from there, some people are genuine in their quest for love for people residing in the States, however there are also many men and women looking to take advantage of naive/gullible Americans in order to move here and get citizenship. I have seen many people, who once they get their papers initiate divorce proceedings from their American spouse as they have already accomplished what they wanted. Please be very careful because if it seems too good to be true, it usually is! Good luck to all..

      I really believe this. I don't want to be used as a ticket to get to the U.S. I believe its easier from that side because of them just trying ro get here. It's much easier requirements heeded from the African side. It's to the Afrikaan advantage to make the rules easier. The U.S. doesn't allow that.
