Jaclyn & Greg

Jaclyn and Greg canoodling in their football gear.How did you meet? What was your first date like? Give us all the details!
We met right after I cancelled my membership with JDate. I was still able to view messages because I paid through the month, and Greg messaged me. I had cancelled because I had been on a lot of dates and nothing was working out, so I was over the online dating scene. Luckily, I decided to go on one final JDate.

It couldn’t have worked out more perfectly. We went to Rotten Ralph’s in Philly’s “Old City” because we both wanted low-key – and to keep track of our fantasy football scores. Besides being physically attracted to one another, our love for sports, food and our families made our first date a breeze. It was so easy. We had so much to talk about and not enough time. Neither of us wanted the date to end.

What advice would you give other JDaters?
Our advice would be to remain open when going on dates. It’s very awkward the first time you meet, but when you’re with the right person, that awkwardness will go away within seconds. Also, always go on that one final date, even when you’ve had enough. You never know… it may be the one!
