Even though Steve’s profile listed Reform and Rebecca’s listed Orthodox, they decided to take a chance and go out for a few drinks. They were amazed to learn how many connections they had, but how it took JDate to get them together. At the time, they lived only a few miles away from each other.
In January of 2013 I was starting to think that maybe JDate wasn’t the place for me. As much as I wanted to find my Jewish soul mate, I thought maybe that just wasn’t possible and I’d have to give up. It was around that same time that I received a message on JDate from Adam that immediately sparked my interest.
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.
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.
