Recent Success Stories
Neither of us could have expected that an ambitious, career-focused woman would ask out a onesie-wearing “class clown” on a date, and that our date would end in the worst first and second kiss in JDate history, and that horrible mess would be the first date memory for a couple who goes on to get married! We’re just hoping we don’t screw up the kiss under the Chuppah.
After this, I definitely recommend JDate and have spoken to people about the importance of having an open mind, widening their search preferences and looking for more than a “hot” guy in their matches. Sometimes people look better in person than in their picture!
What do an Adam Sandler movie and a pushy friend have to do with JDate? Well, if not for these, my wife and I would never have found each other!
It started while I was on JDate at work, my blinking online light aglow. Dennis started to chat with me immediately; the computer had just barely opened my page. Little did I know it was the last day of his JDate subscription and I was no longer a member. It was an intervention from above!
Almost three years ago, Nikki saw Haran’s profile on JDate. She sent him a JDate message only to receive a response saying he had just started a relationship. A year ago, shortly after that relationship ended, Haran rejoined JDate. When Nikki caught him checking out her profile, she immediately IM’d him.
We thank JDate for creating a world where strangers can become best friends and share a life together.
Judy, along with her best friend, created a profile on JDate. Since they lived in different cities, they felt they were not competing and, if anything, could be helpful in finding each other the man of their dreams. Judy felt she had dated all the eligible Jewish men in Northern Virginia (until Alan came along).
Josh and I first found each other on JDate in December of 2009. At the time, we were both working the night shift at our jobs and found it difficult to meet new people. Josh, in fact, was encouraged to join JDate by his mother.
There was only one day left on my JDate subscription when I saw a cute photo for a JDater® named NurseAmy82 (a cute blonde girl), so I shot her an email explaining how my subscription was ending and if she wanted to reach out, how she could get in touch with me.
A few weeks after using JDate and not having any luck, I received a funny message from Jonathan (he even mentioned he was a year older than my requested age range, which immediately made me smile). We went on our first date a week later and have been inseparable ever since.
