We’re celebrating more than just the beginning of the Jewish New Year. A new study confirms that JDate is responsible for more Jewish marriages than all other dating sites combined. Of course we already knew this was true, but now we have the facts to back it up.

We recently commissioned an independent research company, ResearchNow, to survey nearly 1,000 married Jewish internet users. One of the most compelling findings: JDate is responsible for 52% of the marriages that started online, while only 17% of those surveyed met on Match.com® and 10% on eHarmony®.

Those who were surveyed were more likely to find a date on JDate than on any other online dating site. In fact, 63% of all online dates came from JDate. That’s three times more than Match and nine times more than eHarmony.

We couldn’t be happier about JDate’s success and contribution to the Jewish community, and are thrilled to share the good news!

Additional Highlights

·         5 out of 9 Jews married since 2008 used online dating during their search

·         63% of online dates amongst Jews originated at JDate

·         76% of Jewish online daters use JDate

·         Match.com’s President even used JDate


  1. Truly helpful cheers, I do think your subscribers could very well want a great deal more blog posts similar to this keep up the excellent work.

  2. I just wanted to say thank you jdate. I met my husband in August 2004 and in June of 2007 we were married. We have had a very happy 4 years.

  3. I just got engaged to my fiance I met on J-date. We are getting married next September! We have a great story if j-date wants to hear about it! If we can be successful you can too =)

  4. I met my fiance, Dan, on JDate; we are planning an August wedding. We are in our 50s and this is a 2nd marriage for both of us. We are absolutely ecstatic. Thank you JDate!

  5. what are the demographics of the population that you surveyed? (more…..)
    Statistics are not useful unless we have this information.

  6. I met my husband on jdate, my sister met her husband on jdate and my sister in law met her husband on jdate. I just wanted to thank you for the success stories of our entire family. And for my little girl and my nephew:)

  7. I met the man I have been with for the last almost 4 years on Jdate. I was a widow for 14 years at the time – I’m now 62. We would probably not have met had it not been for Jdate. As you get older, there are fewer places to meet age appropriate people, and especially fewer Jewish men and women who are unattached. I did look for several years, but never seemed to find the right combination of what I was looking for. (I was happily married for almost 25 years when my husband passed away) I was looking for another happy not bitter mate. It’s hard to believe that so many years passed by. I have been an event coordinator for more that 25 years – mostly doing Bar and Bat Mitzvot parties, so I was always busy and happy with my life, I didn’t need someone in my life, but I wanted someone. Thanks Jdate for being there.

  8. I met my husband on Jdate! We’ve been together for 5 years!

  9. Big deal! For every JDate success, there’s thousands who can’t find their soulmate on Jdate! To me, JDate is a complete rip off! It should be called Reject Date!

  10. I met my fiance, Benny, on JDate a little over a year ago. It was love at first week. There was no doubt on either end that we were meant for each other. Our wedding is on August 16, 2012 and we could not be more thankful for JDate!!!

    Thank you.

  11. How many REMAIN married? Let’s report on that, too, just to be genuine.

  12. Divorced at 36 i never thought i would find love again. My husband and I met on Jdate 6 years ago. We have been married for 5 years now. We have a beautiful 3 yr old daughter to add to our other 3 children from our previous marriages. Thank you for making my family so full again.

  13. Emailed my wife on JDate 10/28/05. Married her 8/06. Just had our third beautiful child together. 4-1/2, 3 and 3 months. She is the greatest woman ever. Thanks.

  14. I met Irwin on Jdate the day after Valentine’s Day 2009. At our fourth Passover, during our third year, at the second Seder, Irwin asked me to be his one for life and we are now engaged! We are very happy and excited to be one of many couples who met on Jdate.

  15. Great stories- Keep up the good work.

    I am a newbie at JDate. I joined at the recommendation of my friend ,Molly, who had a smile from ear to ear. When I asked her the reason of her happiness, she answered, “My wonderful boyfriend- that I bought/ I mean met through JDate.”

  16. I met my husband on JDate exactly two years ago, and we recently married in March. Had it not been for the site, we would have never met – so I definitely hold jDate responsible for the connection. Thank you! Would love to share more of our story if the opportunity presents itself!

  18. I met my fiancee Amy on Jdate, it is an amazing story! We both grew up in Michigan, literally miles away from each other in different school districts. We actually went to pre-school together and have pictures of us in the same jewish pre-school class. After pre-school Amy went to hebrew day school and I went to public school. Little did we know we’d meet years later and fall madly in love. Amy moved down to South Florida for her second year of college and has since been down in Florida for the last 8-9 years. Meanwhile, I went to law school and decided to move down to Florida to get out of the Michigan weather. After taking the bar exam we went on our first date. After several dates, we realized we had a lot in common and found out we were in the same pre-school class, that her Mom went to high school with my Aunt, that her Uncle went to high school with my dad, and the similarities just continued to mount. After dating for 9 months, in May, I recently proposed to Amy and she and I are ecstatic to continue our lives into wedded bliss!

  19. I met the love of my life on JDate! After our first date we spent every day together. We were married on Jan 22nd 2012. We have a great story if JDate would like to add it to their success stories.

    Thanks so much,

  20. I met my husband on JDate. It will be 4 years since we met this upcoming September (2012). We recently got married June 24, 2012. When we first met, I lived in Los Angeles and he lived in Las Vegas, so we would have never met if it had not been for JDate. Our story, I suppose, is not the norm since I was 18 when my husband and I first met, he was 21, and we were both working toward a Bachelor degree. So, Thank you!

  21. Hi

    I wanted to contact JDate to share my husband and my story, all thanks to JDate!

    I met my husband, Daniel, through JDate about 3 years ago. We went on 1 date and 3 months later we were officially just seeing one another. 1 year later he proposed to me and 1 year 6 months after his proposal we were married.. :0) We have now been married for 11 months and are sitting on our sofa watching the Olympics with our 4-week-old daughter. :0)

    Thank you JDate for allowing him to find me and for me to find him. We are each others soul mates.

    I also wanted to mention if you would like to use us as one of your success stories we would LOVE to share it!! We have pictures we can send you if you would like!

    Thank YOU!

    Michelle – Daniel & Adriana <3
