Friday Favorites | Finding Love Online

One of our favorite things is hearing proposal stories! Hearing about how one of the most important questions that one could ever ask another makes us so giddy and happy! Whether it’s super romantic, adventurously public, or as big of a production as a Broadway show, we love learning about how couples agree to take the plunge!

But before a couple gets engaged, they have to meet, right? And how-we-met stories gets us even more excited! Sometimes people have known each other their whole lives through friends or families. Other times, college romance blossoms between English 101 and a fraternity party. And then there’s always the meeting in the workplace or at the bar. But with the easy access of the Internet and the mobility of technology, so many couples are meeting on dating websites.

There used to be this weird stigma that meeting online was a huge no-no or super embarrassing. Now, it seems to be common practice and has provided many great success stories. We love the idea of online dating because it gives individuals control of creating their perfect spouse. Want a guy who has at least a bachelor’s degree? Check the box! Want a girl who likes pets? Check the box! Want a guy who is taller than 5’4” and enjoys spending time at the gym? Check the box! It’s like a build-your-own-burger bar… but for partners! Technology has gotten us so far in life and civilization. Why not let it take you as far as the chuppah?

Today, Jewish singles want to find other Jewish singles and that’s why our Friday Favorites is JDate ®. The easy-to-use site allows Jewish singles to connect and take dating to the next level. Specifically looking for a Jewish partner enables discussion about loud, theatrical families, or kugel recipes, or even summer camp connections. There’s just a familiarity and a comfort in knowing that your potential husband or wife understands how to say funny Yiddish words or that deli sandwiches never shouldn’t contain mayonnaise. Dating with the aid of JDate ® helps bring Jewish people together in an effort to continue the faith and the heritage.

It’s amazing to think how many people you know have chosen the chosen ones through the convenience and help of JDate ®. Share with us! Tell us if you are a success story! Tell us if you know others who have married through JDate ®.

If you are a success story, we invite you to submit your information so that JDate ® can acknowledge you as you help inspire others who are looking for love. Who knows, you could end up on a billboard in Times Square just like Yenta Alison!

We’d love to hear your stories and how this website has brought two people who go together like rye on bread.

As we close out this monumental week in Yenta Land, we want to thank our readers and vendors for their support, and acknowledge our new partner, JDate ®. We are excited to begin this journey as we contribute stories to their online magazine, JMag ®.

Our Friday Favorites is dedicated to YOU! Happy Friday to our favorite people: our readers, our vendors, and our friends over at JDate ®!
