I was wanting to do something fun last night instead of sitting around the house bored. But I couldn’t find anyone who didn’t already have plans to go catch a movie with me. Even my friend Benjamin had plans – a date with someone new. He was very mysterious about the date and I thought he might even be lying!
But when pressed, he admitted that she is someone he met on a chat for Jewish singles and this was their first date. His family is very religious and meeting Jewish Women is important to him but it can be a challenge locally. Turns out he has been talking to her online for a couple of weeks and finally made plans to meet up in person. I think that’s really cool and hope she deserves a great guy like Ben.
I have mixed feelings about online dating sites. I’ve heard some pretty great stories along with some pretty horrible ones, but actually they are not all that different from the regular dating stories from people that have met other people in other places other than online. I think you take a chance no matter what avenue you decide to take. I’m so glad that I don’t have to worry about all that type of stuff.
