Our wedding day was the best day of my life!

Match #: 1133&1134

"Evi's side: I had become frustrated with my not so great experiences on JWed, and was planning on taking a few months off at the end of my current subscription.  I was frustrated with poorly written messages from members who didn't even seem like they cared how they came across.  I was tired of looked at profiles that didn't say anything about themselves other than their vital stats.  I was frustrated, and decided to write a post about it in one of the forums before I suspended my profile. 

The week before my subscription was to expire, I got a message from a member.  I read the message and it said something like, "I really liked the post about profiles you posted in the forums."  I thought for sure this guy was joking, because I was pretty harsh in my critiques. 

I looked at his profile and he seemed like a really nice guy.  I messaged him back, we exchanged pictures, and emailed back and forth several times before we spoke on the phone a week later.  


We met for our first date at Ben and Jerry's the day before Shavuos, and went on our second, third and fourth dates the next week!  He even came to my Improv comedy show to support me, and it was his smile that got me through my nerves on stage.  A few months after we realized that we had found our soul mate, and never looked back.



Michael proposed to me in JFK airport the morning I came back from a three-week trip in Israel.    Everyone, including the security guard was clapping for us, as he put the ring on my finger!  Seeing him at the gate made me realize how much I had missed him and how much I needed him in my life every day.  He was the first one to love me completely for who I am, and I love him for the amazing and wonderful man he is. 




We've never been so happy in our lives, and we owe it all to JWed! Thank you so much!  It's funny, because we actually do share a few mutual friends... None of them thought to introduce us to each other, and now we're married!


 


"Michael's Side: I opted to try JWed as a few friends of mine had met their spouses on Jewish Dating websites, so I thought I would give it a try. I would email with a few women on the site, but there was one that caught my eye. Her profile had a different appearance than others. Most profiles I saw were the same, all about how much they were looking for a specific criteria. However, this one was different. There was more depth in what she wrote in her profile.



She also provided some interesting feedback on the message boards, which caught my eye as I appreciated her open, honest opinion on a sensitive issue.  She is an excellent writer and that attracted me to her even more.




I sent her a message, and talking online quickly changed to the phone. I had been busy preparing for a bar-mitzvah taking place right after Shavout, so we made plans for our first date to be that Motzei Shabbas.  But we connected so much on the phone that we decided to just "meet" for an hour or so the Monday before. Nothing fancy, Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream at the park.



It would be the best, and last first date I ever went on. Our first date was awesome. I did not feel like I was at a job interview, or that I needed to show my resume of my Orthodox observance. We just sat in the park for almost three hours. A lot longer than what we planned. It was the best date...EVER.



We went out again that Saturday night to Dave & Busters, and had an absolute blast.




A little over a month later, I realized we have so much in common, we enjoy doing almost everything together and the best part, is that not once did I ever feel I needed to change anything about myself.  In past relationships, at times I felt like I had to change something about myself to date someone, this time, was different; and this time, became the best time. I could be who I am, and that is what Evi loves about me, and that is what I love about her. Her genuine persona truly won me over.



Evi went to Israel for three weeks, and it was the toughest three weeks of my life. Being apart was really tough, so I knew what I had to do. I needed to make sure we would be together. When she came back from Israel, I met her at JFK in the morning. I had my close friends with me to capture this moment, so when Evi walked out through the gate, the security guard let me through and I got on one knee and proposed to the woman that I have so much respect and love for.



Our wedding day was the best day of my life.
