Robin & Roger
How did you meet? What was your first date like? Give us all the details!
WWKAYAKER (Roger) and ShalomInFolsom (Robin) met online with JDate in June 2014. Unknown to either of us, we were living just two miles apart in the small town of Davis, CA.
Robin introduced herself online. The pictures that Roger posted of his outdoor adventures and love of family combined with his profile moved her to be the first one to reach out.
We met for coffee one summer evening in June 2014. We talked for hours and quickly began seeing only each other. We removed our profiles and were engaged on September 1, 2015 and were married by Roger’s Rabbi brother on November 25, 2015.
Describe the moment you knew it was true love!
Sitting under the stars six weeks into our relationship, Roger bent down outside my car door and said, “I just want you to know I am interested.” It was meaningful and moving.
What advice would you give other JDaters?
To members new on JDate, don’t be afraid to put on your profile exactly who you are and who and what you want. See past the photos. Post only real, up-to-date photos. Be kind. Respond kindly if you are not interested so that someone will not be discouraged and keep looking. JDate has some of the best people on it.
Mazel Tov to everyone. JDate has your person. Look outside the physical and into someone’s soul.
