Both Oded and I believed it was very important to date someone Jewish. This is what led to us both to joining JDate. Oded and I met in February of 2008. We only talked on JDate and on the phone for less than a week before we met.
However, before he met me, he had decided to move back to Israel. And, so after dating for a few months, we did the “long distance” relationship before I eventually decided to move to Israel to be with him.
We lived in Israel for a year and then came back to the United States. We will be moving back to Israel in a few years.
One month to the day exactly after our second year of dating, Oded proposed. If it were not for JDate, I never would have met Oded.
He came into my life and brought the light and warmth that I had been missing. Thank you JDate for helping me to find my soul mate! We will be getting married this summer and cannot wait to begin our life together!
