I would like to thank you for helping me meet my true love, Alex (Aleksey). We met on JDate with the help of my very good friend, who also found her husband on JDate (thanks to me). My friend had met Alex first, but thank G-d they decided that they were not for each other. My friend introduced us even though we had already seen each other on the site, but had never actually met.
Before our first date, he didn’t know anything about me (he hadn’t even asked for my picture) but I knew a few things about him. When Alex came to pick me up that weekend, I was very excited to meet him and I just knew that we’d like each other. The whole time that we were together, I had butterflies in my stomach and I couldn’t believe that I was on a date with a man that I had always wanted to be with. Ever since I was little this is the type of a man that I wanted to meet, he was kind, smart and generous.
We went to a lounge in Brooklyn and it was karaoke night, I was the brave one and sang Alex a few songs while he sipped on his drink. Later he told me that it was the deal maker for him because he enjoyed the way I sang. After that, we went to the famous El Greco diner on Sheepshead Bay to have a bite to eat and we stayed there until 3 am. We just didn’t want the evening to end! When he finally took me home he said that he’ll be back the next day (even though he lives in upstate New York) because he had such a good time. Our first kiss was something out of a fairy tale and that’s when knew that I wanted to be with this man for the rest of my life.
We were married on August 12, 2007 and we had the most beautiful wedding any girl could ever dream of! I truly believe that if it wasn’t for JDate we would have never met. I would like to say thanks to everyone who works for JDate because this site makes people’s dreams come true.
Tips for other JDaters:
Even though people go on JDate with serious intentions, they should be sure to have fun too. If a date doesn’t work out, don’t get disappointed and give up. Love will find you sooner or later and it happens when you least expect it. When I met Alex I felt a “click,” that’s why I had a feeling our first date will not be our last.
Most of all, have patience and it’ll happen, I promise.
