ANaturalAffinity: Lovesick and green? Find yourself a match

Do your dates hate the smell of your backyard compost heap? No one seems to understand the importance of separating trash from recyclables?

Doylestown native Cindy Gruenwald has the answer to your love life problem. Her website,, matches eco-conscious Delaware Valley singles with like-minded dates.

“For people who have an interest in a lifestyle oriented towards health and wellness, personal growth, spirituality and sustainable living, these aspects of their lives often aren’t merely casual interests, but cornerstones of their lifestyle choices,” said Gruenwald, who realized the magnitude of demand for such a service during her 19-year tenure at a wellness magazine. “They feel a strong desire to find someone with whom they can share this common ground.”

In addition to the dating service, the site offers activity groups, including organic gardening, natural food potlucks and drum circles. “Many people find that getting together in a group setting based on shared activities provides a more comfortable alternative to a blind date,” Gruenwald said.
