Jdate: Helping with New York Dating Since ‘97
There’s no denying New York has that special spark, inspiring books, films and songs all singing her praises. And once you’ve spent any time here, it’s obvious why this busy, diverse and exciting place has such a pull. There’s a place for everyone in New York, whether you’re a party animal or a culture vulture – or fall somewhere in between. But, while millions flock to the Big Apple every year, ready to fall in love with the city, what about New Yorkers ready to fall in love with the one?
It’s true, despite living among so many people, finding a meaningful connection in a big city like NYC can be an uphill battle. While it’s possible to meet someone, you then have to embark on the quest to figure out if you’re actually compatible – and then whether or not you share the same values and goals for the future! It’s enough to leave you totally resigned to singledom, but there is an easier way.
Having helped Jewish singles find love since 1997, Jdate has been there as online dating has become a mainstream and commonplace way to find a partner. Meeting someone online has removed much of the pressure that comes with dating, thanks to the chance to get to know each other ahead of a first date. As well as reducing the jitters that come before a first date, online dating also allows you to make your goals and intentions clear from the start. This upfront approach lays bare your intentions for a relationship, putting the brakes on incompatible matches and speeding up genuine ones.
Dating in NYC & Meeting Jewish Singles
An independent study found that Jdate is responsible for more Jewish marriages than all other dating site combined – around 52% of all marriages that occurred because of an online meeting! And with a massive 23% of our American members based in New York alone, that’s huge potential for you to find some fellow NYC singles you’ll click with.
Before you can start discovering sparks you’ll need to register and begin your New York dating adventure. Registering is super simple – here are three easy steps to getting started:
1. Set up Your Profile, Add Information and Photos
You can register for Jdate on whichever device you have access to. Desktop users can go directly to our registration page, or if you’d prefer to sign up on the go, iOS and Android users can download our Jdate Jewish dating app.
Add your best pictures to your profile and take some time to fill in your details. We know it can be difficult to think of the right way to describe yourself, but don’t worry too much as you can always edit this later when inspiration strikes. Once you’ve filled in some information, our Jdate Customer Care team will work on approving your photos, an extra step we take to ensure you have the most secure dating experience possible.
2. Decide Your Match Preferences
After thinking about how best to describe yourself, now’s the time to let us know what kind of partner you’re interested in. Jdate believes in introducing singles who are truly well-matched, so you can specify details about everything from how you identify (spanning Culturally Jewish to Orthodox, and all that’s in between), to whether you want children and what level of education your partner should have.
Being able to filter by so many options means that you’ll be able to find matches tailored specifically to you and your preferences – after all, dating is about finding someone perfect for you.
3. Start Discovering, Chatting and Dating!
After all of this, the magic truly begins and you’ll start to receive your Jdate matches. Up to seven compatible matches will be sent to you daily, with a match percentage indicating how much you both have in common. However, if you prefer a more hands-on approach to dating, you can also browse profiles and find matches for yourself.
After you start matching, you can start messaging and from there – who knows! Get to know each other a little online and build rapport, then, when it feels right to make plans for your first date, go ahead!
