Judy, along with her best friend, created a profile on JDate. Since they lived in different cities, they felt they were not competing and, if anything, could be helpful in finding each other the man of their dreams. Judy felt she had dated all the eligible Jewish men in Northern Virginia (until Alan came along).
Alan was taking his kids to Hebrew school one Sunday morning when a friend stopped him and asked, “Mr. Z., are you dating?” When Alan replied in the negative, his friend responded with one word: “JDate.”
Before they went on their first date, Judy knew she had found the man for her. In one of their phone conversations, Alan excused himself while he spoke to his son (who was then only nine years old). Judy noticed the tone in which Alan addressed his son with love and respect and she immediately knew this was the man for her.
Nearly nine years later, Alan approached Judy’s two children to ask for her hand in marriage. Alan took their assent and proposed to Judy while on vacation in Cabo several weeks later.
Alan and Judy married six months later, on Mother’s Day, in a small ceremony surrounded by their four children and immediate family.
