Recent Success Stories
Let’s rewind a few weeks: At that time, both Rikki and Ellory had skeptically joined JDate. “Your profile looks interesting… haha” were his first words to her. Not the best pick up line, but he was cute and that was enough to lure her in.
I sent Brett a corny Flirt on JDate, stating “Here’s looking at you kid.” The kid wrote back stating, “We may have a problem here, you probably love chicken parm.” Nice story of a nice Modern Orthodox boy meeting a nice Reform girl = no chicken parm at home!
Julie and Matthew both grew up in Long Island; Julie in Oceanside and Matthew in Baldwin. They spent their childhoods living about 15 minutes from each other. They celebrated their Bar and Bat Mitzvahs at sister-synagogues – and probably attended some of the same Bar Mitzvahs of their classmates as well. Although they lived in such close proximity, and even shared some mutual friends from school and camp, somehow they never met! Until…
The usual game of Jewish geography took place over wine and tapas for their first date. As it turned out, Corey and Emily had crossed paths before. Almost 15 years before, actually, at Jeff Lakes Day Camp; at the time Emily was still a camper and Corey was on the waterfront staff. A quick check-in with a friend confirmed that it was “Corey from boating, the one with the orange shorts and blue sunglasses.”
Evan’s mom bought him a six-month JDate subscription as his birthday present in 2011. I went to buy a one-month subscription, but wound up buying a three-month subscription. At the time, I was living in Tampa, Florida and Evan was living in Orlando, Florida. We were about 45 minutes away from each other.
Lori and Alex informally “met” on May 17, 2010 through JDate.com’s chat feature. As Lori searched on JDate for her perfect match, she came across Alex’s headshot and limited profile. She decided to Instant Message him. Little did she know, she was chatting with her future husband!
Thank you JDate for all you have provided. You have an amazing site and I have bragged about how great it is for the last two and a half years.
I went on approximately 65 dates via JDate – all of the guys I dated were gentlemanly, handsome and truly stand-up guys. There was just never that spark for me…until I went on a date (against my own rules) on a Friday night. It was October 15, 2011, and I was getting all dolled up for what I thought would be just another date. Boy, was I wrong!
The Jewish online Gods must have come together and decided our fate would be held in the hands of the magical Jewish online dating site, JDate. Neither of us can remember our first correspondence with each other back in the early summer of 2008… but Carrie remembers seeing that Mikey viewed her JDate profile, so she decided to be somewhat aggressive and contact him directly.
Upon seeing my profile, Jordan was taken by my pictures and noticed that he had many interests in common with me. After reading about my unusual undergraduate double major of Government and Italian, Jordan sent me a clever email, asking for my opinion of Italy’s scandal-ridden Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.
