Well, it looks like JDate has struck again! You may not know this, but many single Jews have had tremendous luck finding partners on the Jewish dating website, JDate.com. In my four years of the rabbinate, I have already officiated at a number of weddings for couples who met on JDate.
Personally, I have had some interesting successes. The last relationship (which you have heard about before) was a product of a JDate match. And we were together for four years (and I am more than pleased that we are no longer together... but that is another story for another time...)! Not bad, eh?
Well, my steady readers may remember that I had recently decided to re-enter the dating scene. I felt ready to start meeting guys again, if only to start getting my feet wet in the proverbial sea of dating (there are always other fish in said sea). Of course, right after I decided to start dating again, I also decided to aggressively pursue surgery on my back. Thus, the big dating plans didn't really happen.
Well, fast forward to two weeks ago - I met a great, new guy on JDate!! Here I am, actively healing from spinal surgery, and I had a date! Crazy, right? I can't even explain to you why I agreed to it, but I just felt that it was the right thing.
Granted, my grandmother died in the middle of the first date..... That's great first date conversation material right there...
But that is neither here nor there.
We have had three dates so far, each one even better than the last. I might really be getting attached to this one.
Over the next few posts, I will tell you more about him, and share with you some of my fears and concerns over dating again (oy, I don't want to get hurt again).
Wish me luck!!!
