Recent Success Stories
I headed to the sushi restaurant nervous and excited. A week of heavy texting had created much anticipation for my first meeting with Ian. Would it be as easy in person? Would conversation flow? Would there be a spark? We hadn’t spoken on the phone… what would his voice be like? Ian was the first guy I spoke with after recently re-activating my JDate account.
My fiancé and I met on JDate in February 2011. A message from Lee flashed across my screen, but I was going to ignore it because he was a year younger than me and I was looking to date someone a little older. Then I read his profile and saw he had a great sense of humor and that we seemed to have a lot in common. So, I accepted his message and we chatted away.
“I went on and off those dating sites because I hadn’t found someone who really met my expectations,” says Dennis, 64. “But I got tired of being alone on weekends, so I went back on JDate.”
At the wine bar, Morgan and I hit it off. We talked about everything! After a night of great conversation, we decided to walk around the beach and share an ice cream cookie. I couldn’t have asked for a better first date. Without JDate, Morgan and I would have never met and I couldn’t imagine the two of us not being together. Thank you JDate for truly matching us together.
I sent Tova a nice message on JDate that said, “Your profile sounds amazing and I’d love to learn more.” I really enjoyed the fact that Tova was outdoorsy, yet her profile showed how cultured she was by regularly attending operas and classical music concerts. It was as if her profile was a listing of my exact interests.
October 3, 1999: It was a gloomy and rainy Sunday. I had finally put away my pager and said yes to meeting a stranger for the first time face-to-face. It had to be for lunch of course, as you never know how dangerous a person may be! Well, my date was dangerous… as he never let go of me! Fourteen years and two amazing kids later, I married my soul mate and it’s all thanks to JDate!
Quite simply, I joined JDate to prove my mother wrong. She told me I should explore dating more Jewish guys to see if it felt like being with someone Jewish was important to me since I had not dated many Jewish guys previously. My plan was to try it for a month, report back to her about how miserable the selection of guys was, and then go back to finding my own “not-good-for-me and typically not-Jewish-either” guys.
After many JDates, we had both experienced the good, the bad and the ugly. We met for Chinese on a Sunday night for our first date and stayed for a few hours, talking over fortune cookies.
JDate takes the guess-work out of dating. If you have certain attributes you would prefer a potential mate to have, JDate can find them for you. JDate takes the disappointing, lonely, lost world of dating and turns it into a precise, collected, fun, and inspiring way to find the Jewish mate of your dreams.
Let’s rewind a few weeks: At that time, both Rikki and Ellory had skeptically joined JDate. “Your profile looks interesting… haha” were his first words to her. Not the best pick up line, but he was cute and that was enough to lure her in.
