Other sites act more as matchmaker services and agencies, where people fill out a comprehensive form about themselves which is then looked at by people who work for the service, who then in turn try to match with another member based on the two members' interests and other information.After making a match these services and the people involved hope to have a Jewish wedding, with a Jewish wedding ring.JDate's blog, JLife, focuses on dating advice, Jewish traditions and pop culture.
Online dating (or Internet dating) is a system that enables strangers to find and introduce themselves to new personal connections over the Internet, usually with the goal of developing personal, romantic, or sexual relationships.
An online dating service is a company that provides specific mechanisms (generally websites or applications) for online dating through the use of Internet-connected personal computers or mobile devices.
The Jewish calendar, however, coordinates all three of these astronomical phenomena.
Months are either 29 or 30 days, corresponding to the 29½-day lunar cycle.
JDate members have the option to seek heterosexual and/or homosexual relationships on the site.
Profiles include options like "men seeking men" and "women seeking women" to help users connect with their desired matches.The reasons cited often have to do with perceived cultural traits, whether stereotypical or true: "nice" or wealthy Jewish men who treat women well; take-charge, and independent Jewish women who hold on to tradition.While many JDate members respond in kind, others view the phenomenon as an intrusion that defeats the purpose of the site.Individuals do not have to be Jewish in order to join JDate.Members can mark their Jewish affiliation on their profile or select options like “Willing to Convert,” “Not Sure if Willing to Convert,” and “Not Willing to Convert.” While JDate is oriented towards the Jewish population, it has also attracted those seeking Jewish mates.Another recent phenomenon are the Jewish speed dating services and agencies (also known as Hurry Date or Hurry Date), which arrange speed dating sessions for Jewish singles - allowing single men and women to meet many potential mates in one evening, face to face, not online.
