Dating dating dating jewish jewish jewish site sites info

I went on one date that is memorable for many reasons, but one of the funniest is that I seemed to know more about Judaism than he did.Our date happened in late fall, and we were discussing Yom Kippur and the Jewish holidays, and he seemed to be unclear on which holidays celebrate which events in the Jewish tradition.

According to Jezebel, a bunch of dudes are trying to get in on the new dating app for lesbians called Dattch.

(The lengths guys will go to for girl-on-girl action...) The funny thing is, this phenomenon reminded us something not so strange at all that's happened among a number of friends: Non-Jews joining JDate. Three non-Jews live to tell the tale: JDate Gentile: Mark, 29, Chicago Actual Religion: Raised Seventh-day Adventist Church Why JDate: "I had enough confidence to sign up for JDate mostly because I had previously been in a long-term relationship with a Jewish girl while I was in college.

“It’s really difficult,” says Halpern, “You go on JSwipe, you swipe twice and you’re done.” Halpern is a gay woman who, fed up with limited dating app options, did what she and queer Jewish friends had been talking about for years: She made a site of her own.

As a coder, she was able to almost singlehandedly create Saw You At Stonewall.

Niche dating sites exist for a reason: So that birds of a feather can flock together.

(See: Beautiful People.com, Farmers Only.com) But rules are meant to be broken.

I wrote her an email the following day and secured a second date asap. I found out that you could sign up for JDate as a non-Jewish person." Full disclosure: "I said that I wasn't Jewish, but that I was Italian and a lot of the cultural values that I'd observed in my Jewish friends (an emphasis on family and food, for instance) were part of my upbringing as well.

So I tried to bridge the gap."The response: "I never got any backlash that I recall from other women on the site, but I did keep it relatively quiet with friends because I didn't want female Jewish friends to feel like I was stealing their men.

I got a few dates out of JDate but decided it wasn't for me ultimately.

I'm still dating, mostly guys I meet through friends."Moral of the story?

While no longer Orthodox, she is still active in Jewish life, including an LGBT Jewish group in Montreal called JQueer.
