I had been on JDate for two months and was having no luck finding someone. I remember when Pami first messaged me that there was something different.
We messaged each other back and forth before finally meeting for our first date for ice cream on a warm late-September evening in 2011. I remember leaving after the date – and could not stop thinking about her. We continued to message/phone each other almost every day after that first date and the rest, as they say, is history.
On September 26th, 2014 (three years since that first ice cream date), while visiting Pami’s parents in Montreal for the High Holidays, we went to a favourite spot of ours in Montreal called Mount Royal, which is a mountain that has a breathtaking view of the city. It was the most perfect day, with not a cloud in the sky, and everything falling into place. I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me.
She obviously said yes!!! My parents drove into Montreal to help celebrate the great news!
We are now planning to get married in June 2015 and could not be happier. I have found the most amazing person who makes me laugh and makes me smile every day. It is amazing to fall asleep with her face being the last thing I see, and then waking up in the morning to that same beautiful face!
Thank you so much JDate for existing because without your website I would have never met the love of my life!

Mazel tov to the couple!
I have been on Jdate for years and wish I had similar luck – now am a woman in my early thirties- why is it so difficult for some, and some are on here for only two months and meet their beshert?
Jdate- can you perhaps share advice for us who have been on here for awhile and are frustrated on the dating scene, advice that will lead to more matches such as this happy couple?
