Rules for jewish dating challenges of dating divorced man
As one Jewish male friend once told me about his Ok Cupid filters, “I usually set it for only Jewish girls…except when I’m horny.” (Tinder and Ok Cupid are both owned by IAC, the parent company of Daily Beast.)JSwipe definitely gives off less of a hookup vibe than others.Almost everyone I spoke to said they have used JSwipe because they are specifically not just looking for a booty call.A sad-faced orange Star of David flashed across the i Phone screen as we swiped left on “James” (not his real name).The gentleman was listed as Orthodox and kosher, which is way too religious for my friend whose JSwipe account I was test-driving. “Shalom.” and onto to the next nice Jewish boy (or nice Jewish girl if we wanted to go that route).JSwipe is less than a year old, and founder David Yarus says he’s already aware of at least one marriage that occurred thanks to the app--and the Almighty.But, as with many dating apps, you may get matched with people where the pairings don’t even necessarily lead into a conversation.“Even people I spoke to a while back, it didn't get too steamy.It's definitely much dirtier, much faster on Ok Cupid,” said Reuveni.
JSwipe is neither the first nor the most recent Jewish dating app.
Marriages were not so much about romance as making suitable pairs and making sure Jews stayed with Jews and kept the small and heavily persecuted population alive. Marrying another Jew was not just a personal simcha (joy), but one for the community.
