Burning Love

This “Unions” story was first published as “Was it Burning Man that helped ignite a burning desire?” in JWeekly.

Nicole Oloff isn’t sure what exactly brought her and her husband together. Was it that they were both University of Arizona alumni and Wildcats fans? Was it JDate? Or was it Burning Man?

It’s hard for her to know exactly, because they all played a part in the couple’s falling in love and eventually marrying on Sept. 6, 2009.

Nicole, now 29, met Michael, now 33, on JDate in the summer of 2006, when they were both living in San Francisco.

Although their first date was “easy, carefree and natural,” as noted by Nicole, they took things slowly. “Our love blossomed as we got to know each other,” she explained.

That first summer, they went out on Saturday nights, until Michael left to go to Burning Man. When he got back, the two of them started dating exclusively. It’s not clear what spiritual or mystical effect “the man” had on their relationship, but something caused them to decide to take it to the next level.
