Ramonda and Amir: “I want to thank JDate for making it possible to meet my Beshert.”

Submitted by

In the fall of 2011, I was called by a member of our Jewish Community. She knew this great single guy named Amir and was convinced we could be a great couple. She didn’t want to set us up though, so she advised me to invite him to be a friend on Facebook instead. She also told me not to tell Amir about her phone call. I was curious, of course, so I looked Amir up on Facebook, but didn’t invite him to be a friend because that’s just not my style.

In the meantime, I was still on JDate. One day I got an email, notifying me that someone liked my profile… and it turned out to be Amir! Now I had a good reason to contact him. After some emails, we decided to go for a drink. I didn’t tell him about the phone call earlier that fall.

We had a nice first date. Amir and I had drinks and talked in a bar in Rotterdam. I was very nervous. Again, I didn’t tell him about the earlier phone call. A couple of days later, Amir came to my place to cook dinner, and he made risotto. That evening we shared a romantic kiss. I finally decided to tell him about the phone call. It turned out that when Amir contacted me, I was totally unknown to him. The lady never contacted him about me. However, just a few days before we actually met, they met at a birthday party and I happened to come up in their conversation. The lady who called me is the mother-in-law of Amir’s nephew, so they’re actually family.

More fun dates followed and soon Amir asked me to be his girlfriend. Of course I said yes! Because of the way things went, I knew Amir was (and still is) my Beshert. And JDate played an important role in our meeting.

Amir proposed to me at sunset on June 2, 2012 in a vineyard in Kadita, Israel. And again, I said yes. We got married on July 28th, 2013 in Esbeek, The Netherlands. We had the most beautiful and fun chuppah we could ever imagine. It was like a dream, but then real. While we were united in marriage, our biggest wonder was there with us too: at that time, I was 17 weeks and 1 day pregnant. We are expecting our first child in January of 2014.

Amir was an amazing boyfriend and is now a great husband. I love him so much! I want to thank JDate for making it possible to meet my Beshert. I hope many other happy couples will follow!

Thank you!

Ramonda and Amir
Rotterdam, The Netherlands
