Daniel, a native of Livingston, New Jersey was pursuing his graduate degree in counseling. Meanwhile, nearby in Wayne, New Jersey, Goldie had just graduated from Penn State and was working as a manager at Wegmans.
Daniel and Goldie both knew they wanted to meet someone Jewish, but didn’t really have many opportunities to do so. Busy with life’s responsibilities, they turned to JDate for the solution. A few days after Daniel messaged Goldie, they met for dessert at the Cheesecake Factory. Once Daniel found Goldie, there was no separating them. In an effort to play coy, Daniel texted Goldie that night and asked her if she would want to get together again the next day if his “other plans” fell through. Goldie gladly obliged. Six months later, they were engaged.
In August 2012, they got married in West Orange, New Jersey. In June 2013, the couple celebrated the birth of their first son, Micah Shem-Tov. The happy family has JDate to thank for their success.
