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.
Then, I took a black velvet box out from the bottom and my heart started pounding. “This better not be a pair of earrings,” I thought to myself as I opened it up. Fortunately, it was the diamond engagement ring that I had been dreaming about. Matt got down on his knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him.
Once Cameron sent me the first message, we emailed each other fairly frequently for a few weeks. He eventually asked to take me out, but I was skeptical about the whole online dating thing to begin with, so it took me a little while to find the courage to accept.
When we returned there was a circle of rose petals; I was confused. Eliot then told me to stand there and he walked away. Someone started to hand me flowers and a circle formed around me. Eliot disappeared and came back with a blazer, his guitar, and our families. He walked toward me, got down on one knee, played Bruno Mars’ Marry You, and then proposed. It was the best day of my life!
Meryl and Greg met on JDate. Greg (whose username was “BiologicalLove”) sent Meryl (whose username was “Sophistichique”) a “Flirt” that said, “Sunlight, Candlelight, or Moonlight?” That was on July 25th, 2010 at 12:20am. The next day Meryl and Greg then Instant Messaged each other on JDate for a few hours, and then decided it was time for a date.
On May 13, 2010, my mom said the only thing she wanted for her birthday was for me to join JDate. I was hesitant, but how could I turn down her birthday wish?
I had been on JDate for over six months with no success in meeting my soul mate and had planned to end my membership at the end of the month. Then one day I came across a brand new member’s profile and saw this beautiful, blue-eyed red head smiling at me. I was especially touched by what she wrote in her profile.
Our story really is a fairytale. We met on JDate from 1,000 miles apart.
We were joined on the bimah by our boys. And we walked down the aisle together to the song, “Detours” by Sheryl Crow. The lyrics opened my JDate profile…
