Jewish Dating Blog | The inside scoop – Jewish Dating wisdom from the Matchmaker

CAT | Jewish singles

I am having some difficulty  – you have a mutually approved match, wonderful but then you don’t follow-up on it. What is with this, you make the efforts to review the profile, decide to accept – the other person the same, and what happens…you don’t call or email them.

Or even better, you close up the match without even speaking with them as you decide you don’t really have the time to get together. Come on here, you don’t have time…this is your future we are talking about…make the time. Could this be the reason you are still single? I know everyone has a busy schedule – but come on..decide what you want, the longer you make excuses – the harder it will, as you will just get older.

Or it is time to really think things through and decide if a relationship is what you really want.

I think we sometimes need a reality check in dating. 

Men – lets see, you are in your  50′s and decide it is time to get married – that is great, but you have to realize if you still want to have children – most woman will not date over 10 years older. It will be difficult to find you someone in there 30′s. Make a decision, is it the companionship – or the children that you really want? It may be better to meet someone with children, and you can still be a big part of there life, then to wait around till you MAY find someone who is open to meet you – who can still have children.

Remember – if children are really what you want – then there are alternatives out there today.

Woman – (I don’t want the men to say that I am always picking on them) – you are highly educated, and may have certain expectations, well there are many men who may not have the higher education who are well established, financially secure and very intellectual. Give them a chance.

If you are getting older – and either never been married, divorced or widowed, what we HOPED for may not be, you don’t have to lower your expectations, but just be more open in the criteria. Does it hurt to just meet each other over a cup of coffee?????

Summer time has come – and we all think of ways to get out and enjoy ourselves. How about getting out there with the many single’s groups that are organizing activities this summer. Have a look and you will be surprised, from the great vacations, one day trips, and many Shabbaton’s.

What a better time  – to just go out and have fun, and if you meet someone, then wonderful but if not, at least you can enjoy yourself.

Don’t sit around this summer – go outdoor’s and enjoy and you never know what may happend

Okay lets be honest, some people take incredible photo’s – well I am not one of them

I just received my new Driver’s License. Being Canadian – the new thing is you can not smile for any of your Legal Documents. My Drivers Licence, a  real “mug shot”. Now I say that with most photo’s I take, since am just so unphotogenic, but this one has to be the worst.

Why may you ask am I bringing this up? Well, I have spoken about this before, you can’t just look at a photo and say this person is not for me. Over the years I have seen some really bad photo’s on the site, and then you meet them….or they update the photo…

We hear all the time, “I met the person and they didn’t look at all like the photo” well maybe consider this, a photo that has no appeal to you, the person may be incredible, or have such a amazing personality that you look at them so differently.

Don’t judge the person by a photo on a website, take the chance and you may be surprised

Give someone a chance.

Today is my anniversary – a few months ago I wrote how different my husband and I are. Well we talked about this as we sat over dinner.

What brought us together, I still don’t know. Why are we together? The difference’s we have. Well, it is true – but we are together – and we are making it work – open up think what is necessary for a committed relationship. Right now you may need excitement, travel, the outings, but what will you need later on.

I will let you in on something else, my parents – who never had a great marriage. But today as my mother is ill – I watch how my father has been so incredible helping her, helping out around the house, and being there for her. Other men may have left, is this the ideal situation, NO. But I would prefer to have some difference’s with someone and know that they will be around in the later years as well, then to have all the fun and action – but when things get really difficult – they may not be there -

I am not saying don’t look for this – but also really ask yourself – if you meet someone with great inner strength – and wonderful qualities even if they do not have the personality you may have hoped for, or the physical attributes you wished for, don’t say no so quickly – give them a chance – you may surprise yourself

Summer is just weeks away what a great time to get and and explore. There are so many different activities today for Jewish Singles.

Want to take a vacation – why not go on one of the many Jewish Singles trips. Weekend Get-A-Way, Shabbaton’s are a wonderful way to meet. Or even just sign up with some of the local Jewish Organizations for day trips. Check out your local community activities and I am sure you will find something.

If you don’t meet your future partner, well you may just have an amazing time anyways. Enjoy your summer, have fun and let’s hope that this year will be “the year” for all of you.

We are all looking for the ideal match – (or for some looked) – but will we find it. I think this sums it up – and for the person who gave it me if you are reading the Blog - I thank you

 “It is probably better to get a Good man/(woman) w/ a Good soul, than to try to obtain a perfect match on paper”

As we are days away from Passover = no matter how religious, traditional, non-religious you are, most Jews around the world will gather with there family and celebrate in one way or another the freedom of the Jews.

This is also a time where so many single people will be sitting with there family – and realize that maybe it is time to start – or hope to find there potential partner in the coming year.

Maybe next year you will have that person with you – as you sit around the table. SO enjoy the celebrations and hopefully this year will bring you your life partner.

Jewish Dating – no different then dating in general…just network – you send out resumes for a new job, well today dating is simlar. You have to “sell” yourself. With all the on-line sites out there, if you want to meet you have to come up with a way to make your profile different then all the others. Be creative, but don’t write a one wants to read your life story

I just came back from a wedding ceremony. It was so nice to watch as the young couple stood under the Chuppah. Being a matchmaker, I hope that one day I can experience watching one of “my couples” under the Chuppah. So far I have made the matches but the distance was to great for me to be part of the simcha.

You see so many couples today, and the amounts are growing for people to meet, and how..on-line. It still is incredible to think how modern technology has brought so many people together. SO if you are thinking about joining a site…hey might as well put a plug here for ours..(if you are religious, Sawyouatsinai..if not then Jretromatch), go for it..maybe yours will be the next Chuppah I can be part of.
