Recent Success Stories
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.
On May 13, 2010, my mom said the only thing she wanted for her birthday was for me to join JDate. I was hesitant, but how could I turn down her birthday wish?
I had been on JDate for over six months with no success in meeting my soul mate and had planned to end my membership at the end of the month. Then one day I came across a brand new member’s profile and saw this beautiful, blue-eyed red head smiling at me. I was especially touched by what she wrote in her profile.
Our story really is a fairytale. We met on JDate from 1,000 miles apart.
We were joined on the bimah by our boys. And we walked down the aisle together to the song, “Detours” by Sheryl Crow. The lyrics opened my JDate profile…
Without JDate, Jason and I would have continued to live 10 minutes apart and only know each other through mutual acquaintances.
As Peter would say, he found his Beshert and wanted me off the market. This year marks our 10-year anniversary. We are renewing our vows with our friends and family to share in our simcha! We thank JDate for making our world a better place!
We were skeptics when we first joined JDate and neither of us had tried online dating previously. We are so grateful though that we followed the advice of friends and family and signed up! The results were even better than we could we could have hoped for.
“Don’t take yourself too seriously; have a sense of humor about the process. It will take time; we each had to go through a number of bad dates to find good ones.”
Emma and I joke that we would have met at some point because of all the mutual friends we discovered on our first date, but it’s JDate that brought us together.
