Dating internet rule jewish personals
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).Within a few swipes, I was already feeling that burst of romantic optimism you need the first day of the (Christian) new year.Perhaps because I have always been Semitic-minded in my romantic preferences – hey there, James Deen, Paul Rudd, Skylar Astin (Lipstein) – but the guys on JSwipe seemed more attractive than the usual dating site bunch.It launched about nine months ago in timing with Passover (because nothing says love like a story of slavery and eight days of eating a cracker that will ruin your digestive system).Since then, the app has gained over 165,000 users in more than 70 countries, according to its founder.
And yet we keep devouring the ever-increasing array of Jewish dating apps and sites and Facebook groups--why?
People have been trying to kill us for thousands of years.
