Recent Success Stories
My JDate success story is unlike any you’ve ever read before. Somewhere around 2000-2001, I had surgery and was stuck in bed for a few weeks. During that time, I discovered the JDate chat room. Up until then, I had met a couple of nice men through JDate, but not “The One.”
Kenny and Alissa have become best friends and are true soul mates. They complement each other and balance each other out. They have experienced so much together and all that matters to them is that they are beside each other during all of the good times — and the bad times. Together they have even creating a small vegan ice cream company called Alissa’s Treats!
Both of them feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to have met and fallen in love. It never would have happened if they hadn’t logged on to JDate all of those years ago. It’s worth taking the chance and seeing who is out there. You never know when you’re going to meet the love of your life.
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).
