A Tale of Two States
Rifky (21) from Florida & Sammy (23) from New Jersey
Match #: 1957&1958
At the end of the summer I was frustrated with the dating scene and decided to try out JWed because a friend of mine had used it before. I really like the fact that I could see the girls profiles and pictures before I went on a date with them. I didn't like the typical shidduch method, it was not working for me. I wanted to be able to pursue and meet a girl in a more normal manner. Before I started using JWed, I had always dated and been set up with girls from the general locale where I live, but my dad had always said to me that I need a girl from out of town. So when I began on JWed I took his advice. I never cared about where the girl was living, I just contacted people based on compatibility and attraction level. I figured that for the right girl I would drive or fly anywhere just to meet her. And so I came upon this girl, the girl of my dreams, who was using JWed for the first time. And, in fact, she was so dissatisfied that she had decided to cancel her subscription. With only two weeks until she was locked out of JWed I contacted her. She had put very little info on her profile, but there was something about her that made me pursue her. We chatted online for about a week and then decided to start talking in the phone. We actually ended up talking consistently for about 5 weeks before I decided to buy a plane ticket, rent a car, and come to take her out to dinner...which ended up being the most expensive date of my life! Thank G-d it was so worth it. The moment I saw her, I knew there was some major potential here and every second we were together things just got better. We flew out to spend time with each other multiple times, but it was pretty clear to us after the first few dates that this was a match made in heaven. With boundless appreciation to G-d for choreographing this Two State Tale, we got engaged several weeks later. And we are deeply grateful for the service that JWed has provided us with. Without this valuable site and meeting place our souls would be wandering at opposite ends of the country. May all those who are looking for their other half be blessed with the fortitude, courage, and clarity of mind to use every tool available to find their soul mate.
