As we at Gather the Jews are always saying, it seems like our staff and featured community members just can’t stop doing amazing things! Whether it’s winning prestigious awards and fellowships, running charitable events, or throwing the best outdoor dance party in DC, we’re constantly blown away by how awesome DC Jewish young professionals are.
The latest example? GTJ’s resident dating columnist (and online dating expert extraordinaire), Erika Ettin, is the subject of a full-length feature article in the Washington Post! The article, which refers to Erika as a “modern day Cyrano,” details her growing business and ongoing efforts to help people find love.
An excerpt from the article (which can be found in full here):
Erika Ettin, the 30-year-old founder of A Little Nudge, makes no guarantee that she will find customers true love, or even a date. But she assures her tailored approach can improve the odds.
“People have a hard time writing about themselves, but for online dating to work, it’s important to tell a story about yourself to give someone a accurate picture of who you are,” said Ettin, who has written 150 profiles since starting the service in April 2011.
What the article doesn’t mention is that Erika shares many tidbits of her highly acclaimed dating advice with GTJ readers, via her regular column for us. Check her out every other Tuesday on our site or on her business website.
