Singles felt they were viewed as inferior by the larger community and were often troubled by loneliness and isolation.
Shadchanim were valued by some, but generally criticized for insensitivity.
These are individuals who are Shabbat and Kosher observant and tend to embrace a more spiritual, and relaxed observant lifestyle.

The search for a spouse can be a difficult process for many men and women.
Our intention is solely to facilitate searches for a potential spouse; as an individual's religious outlook and practice are essential criteria in determining compatability.
Because these terms may be understood differently across the Jewish world, we encourage singles to search across Hashkafas (Jewish outlooks/observance categories), and focus on objective measurements of observance - such as frequency of prayer, and type of dress.
This category was created out of a demand for a no-name brand "Orthodox" category.
Individuals who choose this category generally do not believe in labels or categorization.
However, they are modern in the sense that they are not "Yeshivish" (see the next category) and readily engage in the secular world while leading an Orthodox observant life.
These tend to be individuals who identify more strongly with the Yeshivish-black-hat community, but feel that working in society is an essential part of their Judaism.
In recent years, it has been observed that a growing number of individuals in the Modern Orthodox Jewish community attempt to find spouses but are unsuccessful.
Singles utilize a range of support systems, including social events, online dating resources, traditional matchmakers (shadchanim) and choosing to reside in singles communities.
