I recently turned to my husband and thanked him – thanked him for inspiring me to create a website for those who have fallen in love and decided to get married.
It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was nursing a broken heart and considering starting a site for those who were scorned. It’s a good thing that my husband and my chance encounter on JDate changed both my life and my career direction!
A funny thing happens when you meet your spouse on JDate – you find out how many other couples met on JDate too. Some stats: Nearly half of my married Jewish friends met their spouses on JDate. I recently attended my high school reunion and learned that four out of five of my married Jewish classmates met on JDate as well. After I launched Jewish Wedding Network, I started receiving submissions from bloggers, and when questioned on how they met their fiancés, nearly half of them answered, you guessed it – JDate. Those are some pretty amazing statistics!
Why am I telling you all this? For those of you who have met your beshert on JDate, I say “Mazel Tov.” For those of you who have not yet met anyone, I say “hang in there.” I know how hard it can be to feel as though you may never meet “The One.” I was in that position too, as well as many of my friends who are now married. Over the next few weeks, I am going to be sharing some incredible stories of couples who met here on JDate. I hope to one day share your story too.
