As someone that writes about online dating for a living I have visited and seen my fair share of online dating sites.  While many strive for greatness, the truth is that many just do not live up to the hype in terms of user-experience, quality of membership and overall satisfaction.  Yet, there are a few gems in this over-populated field and I must say, JDate falls near the top of the list.  JDate not only delivers on a specific niche, helping Jewish people to find matches in a dwindling Jewish population, but it continues to expand and innovate with new ideas.

Charity Events for Singles Charity Events for Singles

When you first walk into the room, walk in with a sense of confidence even though you may be nervous.  Be friendly, but do not be overly friendly; people may see this as “leeching” and may become uncomfortable.  Try to “work the room” and meet as many people as you can, and always be “light and polite.” Keep the predominant focus of the conversation around the charity, not around your business.

Who hasn’t imagined the perfect first date at a dimly lit wine bar? Flickering tea lights, knees bumping under the table, warmth spreading to the legs, fingers brushing fingers as you clink your glasses…Flash forward to the perfect wedding, and there’s that same bottle of wine, the first one you ever shared. Do you really want your guests to guzzle a cheap Pinot Grigio that smells of, ahem, Linden tree blossoms (Google: “Queen Victoria and the Linden Tree”).

How to Get Over a Breakup How to Get Over a Breakup

My matchmaker mom once told me that it’s better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. I didn’t understand what this meant until a few years ago when someone broke my heart.
