Recent Success Stories
Alli and Aaron had both recently moved to Cleveland, Ohio (far from their respective homes in Florida and Wisconsin) to start new jobs. A few months after the move, on the eve of her birthday, Alli joined JDate hoping this New Year would bring something special.
Phil’s New Year’s resolution was to find a nice, Jewish girl. So, in late December of 2006, he logged on to JDate.
People keep asking us for advice about JDate. If we have any advice to share, it would be to be truly open and realistic in the process. You will likely have more bad dates than good, and it is easy to get discouraged. It only takes one though, so don’t let the bad experiences turn you off to the process.
So, I want to tell everyone who reads this that JDate really works! If it weren’t for JDate, I would never have met Helena. It’s funny to think we lived less than five miles apart from each other and we never crossed paths. We knew a lot of the same people, and we even went to the same places, but still our eyes never met.
On paper, we were not a match. Alan was only looking for a friend/activity partner, while I was looking for more. He was a “red,” and that hadn’t worked for me previously. So I stayed …
I met Nicole on JDate back in April of 2012. I saw that someone had viewed my profile, and it was Nicole. However, I was only looking to meet people from Florida and Nicole was from Long Island, New York. There was something about her profile though that just drew me in. She was beautiful from the picture I saw and I had to contact her.
Whenever anyone asks how we met, we always say JDate, followed by me telling everyone that Glen, my husband, is “The best thing I ever bought on the internet!” To which he always responds, “Yes, and she is the most expensive!”
Mari and I met on an unseasonably warm October day. We had emailed a few times on JDate; thankfully Mari wasn’t too freaked out when I messaged her only moments after she joined.
Neither could have imagined this could happen, and are so grateful to JDate for bringing them together.
I joined JDate. As I was looking through my matches, I happened to click on my now fiance’s picture. In a sense, I found him. The next day, I received a message from him with the great pick-up line of, “Do you know my cousin Lauren? She went to your high school.” Debating whether or not I should respond, I went for it!
