Recent Success Stories
I first joined JDate in 2008, and while I never expected anything meaningful to materialize, I consistently renewed my membership just in case.
My daughters suggested that I try JDate; it was rocky at first as I attempted to compose an accurate profile and upload flattering photos. After an unsuccessful period of time, I gave it up. I re-joined JDate six months later and soon after was pleasantly surprised to find a cheerful query on a Monday evening after work.
We can’t wait to share in the celebration with all of our family and friends! Thank you, JDate for connecting us. Now, it’s my little brother’s turn… !
One Sunday night I signed on to my JDate account and had a note in my inbox from a guy named Dave. He looked cute and oddly familiar.
It was my last week on JDate before I would have to decide if I would renew.
It all started nearly 10 years ago in early November of 2004. Jeremy, a then 26-year-old political consultant/fundraiser from the D.C. suburbs, was browsing JDate and noticed Michelle, a stunning 22-year-old Texan and recent college grad who had moved to D.C. with some friends to spend a year studying/working at the National Institute of Health before medical school.
We both happened to log on to JDate at the same exact time for different reasons, but both casually, both not expecting our lives to change at that exact moment. Timing was everything though…
Barrie and I met as all single, professional, busy Jews do: On JDate. After a few failed relationships, and upsetting dates, I had all but given up on finding love in this world. But before committing to a life of celibacy, I went on JDate and expanded my search options to Jewish women within 100 miles.
We met in November of 2011; I “hot listed” Barry, and he sent me a message almost right away. I broke every rule I had for myself, he asked me to hang out the following night and I said yes… normally, I would not have done so on such short notice.
Whether you are lighting Shabbos candles and hitting the Shul every week, or just love a bowl of matzoh ball soup while watching Seinfeld, there is something to be said for the bond we Jews share with one another. I will continue to sing JDate’s praises and feel lucky that it allowed me to find such an amazing woman!
