And I can’t remember the last time I’ve donned a neon wristband.
Still, Match wants to know about your favorite places to hang out and whether you’re a dog or cat person, and asks what Mr. It even lets you decide if your man’s body type is a deal breaker!
However, out of our first dozen matches, not one was Jewish (even though we chose that as our deal breaker).
However, I come with questions: What is everyone doing here?
Is this how young people in the Bay Area are meeting each other? And what about “marrying Jewish” — does that still feel relevant? In short, the answer to all that is: Yes, no and maybe.
If you’re willing to sift through the haystack or aren’t too concerned about dating Jewish, this is stacked with options. Like our other picks, Super Tova asks questions about your interests, political views and astrological sign (okay, that one was new) but the service itself is free.
Super Tova (Free) You’re probably starting to realize online dating can get a little pricey. While that’s a plus, it comes with some downfalls, like a site that crashes with every click.Unlike our other picks, this dating site didn’t ask us to fill out personal, in-depth questions to help find a match.Besides asking for a location and username, JPeople Meet didn’t want to know much else about myself or my perfect date. and were disappointed to find only one person in Minneapolis on the site.It’s a Saturday night and I find myself underground in a dimly lit room at the Hawthorn, a cocktail lounge in San Francisco’s Financial District, holding a whiskey in one hand and a pink neon glow stick in the other.The event I’ve just walked into is Jewbilee, proclaimed the “hottest monthly party for Jews in their 20s and 30s.” Jeremy Doochin, one of the organizers, has set his beer on the table between us so he can snap the glow stick around my wrist, turning it into a bracelet.We also got a little nervous when we learned the site was free; we’re looking for the loves of our lives here, not just some Joe Schmo.
