Neal and I met on JDate back in June 2012. One of the funny parts of ‘our story,’ which needs to be included here, is that although we never met until the summer of 2012, Neal and I had actually spoken on JDate two years earlier.
We had both been on JDate for a few years and had dated enough to know what we wanted so there weren’t any games. We were honest and open, and the relationship progressed naturally. We had disagreements and fights along the way, but the relationship always felt right.
Thank you JDate for making Rachael only a click away, and for allowing me to live out my own love story, where each chapter gets better and better.
A little over three years ago, I met my husband Mike through JDate. We were both living in Boston where he was about to start medical school and I was working as a writer at an advertising agency. After a few messages back and forth, we agreed to meet for coffee. The date was so easy and fun, we couldn’t wait to get together again and learn more about each other.
I was a little hesitant to sign up for JDate initially. But I took the plunge when I heard about the Purim special: “Two months for the price of one!” At first I didn’t have much luck getting any dates. But then…
When it was my turn to have a reading, the psychic looked at me, smiled and said, “You are going to meet your soul mate in a week. His name will begin with a J, he will wear a blue uniform to work every day, and you will have many of the same interests including a love for the warm weather.”
I first joined JDate in 2008, and while I never expected anything meaningful to materialize, I consistently renewed my membership just in case.
My daughters suggested that I try JDate; it was rocky at first as I attempted to compose an accurate profile and upload flattering photos. After an unsuccessful period of time, I gave it up. I re-joined JDate six months later and soon after was pleasantly surprised to find a cheerful query on a Monday evening after work.
We can’t wait to share in the celebration with all of our family and friends! Thank you, JDate for connecting us. Now, it’s my little brother’s turn… !
