All I can say to those still looking for “The One” is don’t give up! Do not judge somebody before you actually start to talk to them, because you will not get anywhere! Give everyone a chance and you may just end up meeting your best friend on JDate, as well as some pretty terrific friends on your journey to love!
The couple has now been happily married for over a year and they continue to fall more in love each day. They are so thankful that JDate (combined with Zac’s persistence) brought them together!
After many failed attempts, Robin (TerpsFan01) was going to take the plunge and join JDate now that she had moved back to D.C. She had just started editing her profile again. Unlike Robin, Brian (NotJustAnotherJew) had much success on JDate with three one-year (or longer) relationships from it under his belt.
Matt and I had very different experiences with online dating. I had been online for over a year when I spotted Matt’s headshot on JDate. He’d been there for all of one week, but already knew a JDate Success Story as his older sister, Amanda, had met her boyfriend (now husband) on JDate.
Three years after our first date, while surrounded by our family and friends at our wedding rehearsal dinner, my mother proudly proclaimed in her speech: “We couldn’t be happier with our new son-in-law. I tell everyone he’s a Jewish mother’s dream come true. It was indeed the best 20 dollars I ever spent.”
If that weren’t enough, after we started dating, Kerin’s two best friends were inspired to join JDate as well. They are both engaged now with weddings on the way.
As it turns out, I had been following in Mike’s footsteps for many years before catching up to him. Even though it was years apart, we both went to the same high school, were in the same drama department, went to UCF, worked in the same ice cream shop in Orlando, and moved back home to Boca Raton. It was meant to be.
The funny thing is that when Alex and Barry started talking on JDate they realized they were actually friends with several of the same people (their second date was a birthday party for one of those friends).
That’s when, remembering the open text message from JDate Jason, I decided to re-initiate communication. He instantly asked me on our “second first date” – and from that moment on, May 18th 2013, we were inseparable.
