Michelle and Jeremy: “…was browsing JDate and noticed Michelle, a stunning 22-year-old Texan…”

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 Michael: “…met as all single, professional, busy Jews do: On JDate.”

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.

Diana and Barry: “…we have JDate to thank for bringing us together.”

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.

Elisa and Oz: “…that beautiful Canadian girl I loved chatting with on JDate became my wife!”

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!

Jodi and Stuart: “My future wife gave good email right out of the gates.”

It used to pain me to admit that I met my wife online. As if I was too pathetic to find someone in the real world. I needed algorithms. How romantic! That was 10 years ago, before online dating was as ubiquitous as belly button rings on 13-year-olds.
