Recent Success Stories
It is easy to read JDate’s Success Stories and wonder if they are true, or whether anything like this could ever happen to you. Everyone has their own reasons for being a JDate member and we all want different things from it. So, with this in mind, Lauren and Jamie wanted their story to be told in the hopes that it inspires you in one way or another.
Several years ago, two bored sisters with a wicked sense of humor created a JDate profile for Harvey, one of their father’s closest friends. They never imagined it would lead to a three-year, cross-Atlantic relationship, including aliyah (immigration to Israel), a very public marriage proposal and a wedding!
About a month later Drew and I went to see a concert, but just as friends. When we were dancing he asked if he could put his arm around me. I said yes and it was magical. I knew he was a keeper.
I was never into online dating, but my friends eventually convinced me to try JDate. I signed up for a six-month package, expecting to use it for a long time because I never thought it would really work. After just two weeks, I met my future wife.
I received an email reply from Karen two months after I initially contacted her – and I was surprised. We exchanged another email and then spoke on the phone the very next day. The conversation went so well and flowed so naturally, I didn’t want to wait to meet her. So, I arranged to see Karen that very evening, even though I was attending the party of a friend.
We were both about to give up on online dating when, by an amazing chance, David came across my JDate profile. After a few phone calls, we decided to meet a local bar. We both knew on that first date that this was going to be something special!
If not for JDate, two individuals that at one point lived just down the street from each other would never have crossed paths. The best advice they can give to JDate users is to give it a chance more than once because you truly never know.
It was not until my mother told me that she saw all the JDate commercials on TV and thought I should give it a try that I decided to join JDate. She even offered to pay for my subscription!
This is the story of what JDate did for Joey536 and Minky7B93.
Avi is my best friend and we have shared many happy times together, as well as overcome obstacles which have only strengthened our relationship. We are very grateful to JDate for bringing us together. Without JDate, we would have never met, as we were living far away from each other.
