(I’d never seen a blue-collar person on JDate.) When he called his voice was sexy and raspy and I didn’t realize it was because he’d pulled an all-night welding shift, and by the time I realized he actually was a welder it was too late because I’d already accepted a date. I was Postscript: The Author did, in fact, go back on JDate, but sadly, did not meet her husband on the site. My Facebook profile says I’m “Married to Haley Moss Dillon,” and has for the last four years. These Facebook “marriages” between best friends have become the digital iteration of friendship necklaces, two halves of a heart, bought at Claire’s and displayed as a proclamation.
We went out on-and-off for a year, and this is not to JDate’s credit, because we were ill-suited and incompatible, and even though it’s taboo, I’ll say this: It was because of our class differences, and by this I mean education, money, values and social circles, and if it were not for JDate we never would have met at all. But they have practical applications beyond letting the world know that you love and are loved.

But here’s the thing about Internet dating in general and JDate in particular: People hate it. I tend to go for guys that say things like, “I want a woman who is independent and has her own interests,” which I’ve only recently understood to mean, “I only have time for women who are like that blow-up doll in .” I also tend to go out with guys who write “Communication is key,” to answer the question, “What I Learned From My Last Relationship”–an asinine category which should be re-titled, “What I Definitely Did rather than have a conversation about The Relationship and Where We Are Headed, the answer being, Nowhere and Fast.
To be fair: Men also have profound and reflective complaints about the females online: Namely, that women lie about their weight and age. That’s what people do on JDates: We talk about other JDates like we are at a family reunion and we are trying to catch up with cousins we haven’t seen in years.
I’d rather be single while I was young than end up a middle-aged divorcee, my figure destroyed by the three kids I didn’t even want. I cut my hair flapper-short, dug out the red lipstick, and bought a new Victoria’s Secret push-up bra.Why do some relationships last decades while others fizzle out after a few months?At Compatible Partners, we’ve spent many years studying people in relationships and identifying the factors that make two people truly....compatible.I recently started envying my parents, who got married at twenty-two; and that’s a scary thing because my parents had a terrible marriage and divorced after twenty-nine years, but still, bad. That first one I could have met on my own because we had so many friends in common. JDate introduced us, but I didn’t reply to his email until four months later (I was inundated with suitors before I turned thirty-five), and by then he was about to move across the country. I’ve paid them more than a thousand dollars, not to mention at least two hundred hours of dating time–this doesn’t include prep time of pedicures, waxing and therapy.I fell in love with him anyway in the six weeks we were together, and after he left, I had such great hopes for JDate that it took years and hundreds of dates before I realized I wouldn’t meet someone like him again. Now, when I read this on JDate I thought it was a joke, the way men write under profession, “clown school” or for birthplace, “another planet.” I LOLed, it was so funny. If dating were tax deductible I could write off half my life. And if I do meet someone offline, in real life, I will go look him up on JDate and contact him there and I’ll tell everyone at our wedding loudly and clearly that we met on JDate, that everyone must go on JDate (although everyone will be married by then) and see, I wasn’t wasting all my time and money and in the end. By the time she got married she had forgotten about JDate and all the hours she wasted on the site, and, like most coupled people, had also forgotten about all her single friends. Second of all, we’ve claimed to be married since long before New York State legalized same-sex marriage.I dreaded from the pit of my ice-cream-and-booze-filled stomach the torrent of “OMG what happened?” and “:(“ from people I barely knew, and even worse, the congratulations from people who never liked my ex.The simple solution: Change my status to “Married” to my best friend, Haley.It provided us both with an excuse to keep our romantic relationships off of Facebook and let me change my status without actually announcing the breakup.We truly understand that location is an important factor in finding the perfect match.We also know that finding people who share your beliefs is key to our singles, so whether you’re looking for Jewish New York City Gay Singles or Gay Jewish Singles in Los Angeles, our relationship questionnaire can match you with other like-minded individuals who share your outlook on life.
