Marshall and Matt: “I had been online for over a year when I spotted Matt’s headshot on JDate.”

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.

Alyssa and Avi: “We may never have met if it weren’t for my mother encouraging me to join 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.”

Amanda and Michael: “Thank you JDate for helping me find the love of my life!”

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.

Caroline and Jason: “Remembering the open text message from ‘JDate Jason,’ I decided to re-initiate communication.”

That’s when, remembering the open text message from JDate Jason, I decided to re-initiate communication. He instantly asked me on our “second first date” – and from that moment on, May 18th 2013, we were inseparable.

Katherine and Matt: “JDate gave us something better than magic…”

Then, I took a black velvet box out from the bottom and my heart started pounding. “This better not be a pair of earrings,” I thought to myself as I opened it up. Fortunately, it was the diamond engagement ring that I had been dreaming about. Matt got down on his knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him.

Tali and Cameron: “Thank you, JDate, for introducing me to the man of my dreams!”

Once Cameron sent me the first message, we emailed each other fairly frequently for a few weeks. He eventually asked to take me out, but I was skeptical about the whole online dating thing to begin with, so it took me a little while to find the courage to accept.

Arielle and Eliot: “My fiancé and I met on JDate three years ago.”

When we returned there was a circle of rose petals; I was confused. Eliot then told me to stand there and he walked away. Someone started to hand me flowers and a circle formed around me. Eliot disappeared and came back with a blazer, his guitar, and our families. He walked toward me, got down on one knee, played Bruno Mars’ Marry You, and then proposed. It was the best day of my life!

Meryl and Greg: “They Instant Messaged each other on JDate for a few hours…”

Meryl and Greg met on JDate. Greg (whose username was “BiologicalLove”) sent Meryl (whose username was “Sophistichique”) a “Flirt” that said, “Sunlight, Candlelight, or Moonlight?” That was on July 25th, 2010 at 12:20am. The next day Meryl and Greg then Instant Messaged each other on JDate for a few hours, and then decided it was time for a date.
