I signed up on JDate after an ugly divorce and my only hope was to just meet some nice men.
To be honest, I really had no expectations. I was a member for about a year when I signed in to check my inbox and I got an Instant Message from Motti. He had the cutest face and was holding a flute in his profile photo. I live in New York and at the time he was living in Israel. We spoke for three months over the phone and on MSN Messenger and became very close. In December I just couldn’t take it anymore, so I called in sick to work and booked a flight to Israel to see Motti.
From that day we have been inseparable. He moved to New York in January of 2006 and we dated and got engaged a year later. Our wedding took place September 23, 2008 in Israel. It was a dream come true. I am forever in debt to JDate for helping me meet my true soul mate. Who would have thought that Internet dating worked?
Tips for other JDaters:
My profile contained my true interests, likes and dislikes. I went into it with an open mind and I didn’t fall in love with pictures. I took the time to meet a lot of people. I always thought you have nothing to lose by meeting someone for a cup of coffee.
Thanks a million!
