Jewish dating advice is important and detailed enough to have it’s own site dedicated to it. Our founder Arnie Singer has certainly given lots of it over the years.
Much of Jewish dating advice isn’t that much different than regular dating tips. It really boils down to a few basic points that you need to be aware of a follow in order to have a shot at success.
1. Know who you are.
In order to find the right one you need to know who you are and what you need to be happy. Only then can you move on to the next step.
2. Know who you are looking for.
Once you’ve identified who you are it’s time to identify the kind of person you are looking for. This might be the most important part of dating. You don’t want to waste your time (or someone else’s time) looking for the wrong person.
3. Identify where that person is.
You don’t want to be, “looking for love in all the wrong places.” Too many people have wasted much too much time searching where they shouldn’t have been. It usually just ends with frustration.
4. Be the best person you can be.
That goes for appearance and manners. Be the wonderful kind of person you’d like to spend time with!
5. Ask for a date.
Duh, right? Well, so many people never actually do.
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until you’re in a real relationship.
Our Jewish Dating Philosophy
At Jzoog we believe that at the initial meeting stage, dating advice really shouldn’t be necessary. We’ve given you the ability to search for matches based on a few general criteria we believe are important to get started, such as age range, location and desire to have children (or not).
If someone matches those criteria and you like how he or she looks, then we think you should just make contact and meet them. Do you really need to know that much about a person before going out on a first date? You already know their basic information that came directly from their Facebook profile, so there’s social proof backing up that data. You’ve seen their profile photos. You can even see if you share any mutual Facebook friends.
That’s enough for a first date, or at least a first contact.
So don’t get hung up on needing to know everything about someone before even going out with them on a first date. Too much information isn’t good for anyone. You’ll find out everything you need to know as you get to know the person better. For now, if they fit your search criteria and you like how they look, stop thinking and start contacting!
You’ll never really know until you try, so give your self the chance to succeed.
