What made our story successful was being 100% completely open with each other. Neither of us want to play games or wait around; we knew how we felt about one another and were very upfront about our feelings and our expectations.
It began with me searching through different JDate profiles when I came across Jennifer’s. I sent her a brief message in which I wrote that I liked her profile and wanted to see if she would to meet for coffee and get to know each other.
Shahrouz and Lauren first connected when Lauren came across an adorable JDate profile of a NY medical student from California and sent him a message. They chatted on JDate for a short while and he quickly asked for her number, skipping his dinner plans to call her.
All I can say to those still looking for “The One” is don’t give up! Do not judge somebody before you actually start to talk to them, because you will not get anywhere!

After many failed attempts, Robin (TerpsFan01) was going to take the plunge and join JDate now that she had moved back to D.C. She had just started editing her profile again. Unlike Robin, Brian (NotJustAnotherJew) had much success on JDate with three one-year (or longer) relationships from it under his belt.
Matt and I had very different experiences with online dating. I had been online for over a year when I spotted Matt’s headshot on JDate. He’d been there for all of one week, but already knew a JDate Success Story as his older sister, Amanda, had met her boyfriend (now husband) on JDate.
Three years after our first date, while surrounded by our family and friends at our wedding rehearsal dinner, my mother proudly proclaimed in her speech: “We couldn’t be happier with our new son-in-law. I tell everyone he’s a Jewish mother’s dream come true. It was indeed the best 20 dollars I ever spent.”
If that weren’t enough, after we started dating, Kerin’s two best friends were inspired to join JDate as well. They are both engaged now with weddings on the way.
As it turns out, I had been following in Mike’s footsteps for many years before catching up to him. Even though it was years apart, we both went to the same high school, were in the same drama department, went to UCF, worked in the same ice cream shop in Orlando, and moved back home to Boca Raton. It was meant to be.
