I suppose my desire to rejoin JDate was reinforced yesterday in an InterfaithFamily.com staff meeting while discussing our new 401K plan. The sign up form was simple â€“ but all I could see were two boxes looming at me:
â€śCheck here for Married.â€ť
â€śCheck Here for NOT MARRIED.â€ť
It was like a flashing beacon in the room. I was the only unmarried one (well, unless you count Benjamin, but heâ€™s got one foot down the aisle with his lovely fiancĂ©e). So, I thought to myself, â€śItâ€™s time to get back on the horse.â€ť
Itâ€™s been a while since Iâ€™ve been on JDate. I had taken a breather to move apartments, start a new job at IFF, and you know, smell the roses.
JDate has changed since I first joined (letâ€™s just sayâ€¦.) many years ago. I think one of the best changes is that it now offers the option for non-Jews to join the site and can choose one of the following as the â€śreligionâ€ť option:
It appears that this was an important shift with JDate. According to its mission, JDate is â€śdeeply committed to Israel and Jewish cultural programsâ€ť but also provides â€śsupport for numerous non-profit organizations of all faiths.â€ť With about 50% of the population intermarrying, this is an important option for those of us still looking for Mr. or Ms. Right. For support and more information on interdating, visit here.Iâ€™m off to find my Mr. Right.
