Unbeknownst to many Terrence J’s got a gorgeous girlfriend.The host/influencer who previously dated Nicole Isaacs has been coupled up with model Jasmine Sanders for a while…They are out there, and you will find the man who loves and appreciates you for exactly who you are, no apologies necessary.And then, when you are ready to have children, hopefully you will be able to help raise the next generation of feminist MEN as well!!I'm not trying to kill the dream, but perhaps remind everyone that JDate is not a magical matchmaker. It's the "man-hating" and "unable-to-talk-about-anything-else" that is problematic, and generally not true.It's an online dating site like any other, populated by regular people and all their flaws. I feel that chatting, IMing or texting before meeting in person should be kept to a minimum. If you live in the same city as the potential match, meet up with him ASAP. My Fantasy Date MFD: Hello, I'm your Fantasy Date tonight. While I am pragmatically cautious about saying the "f" word, I also feel it is my duty as a feminist try to bunk those assumptions. There certainly are great, feminist, Jewish dudes out there. There ARE feminist men out there, even if they might not be in great abundance (hopefully in greater abundance than the 'creeps', we hope...). Even if they don't know that they are feminist yet.You may very well meet your future wife or husband there, but you will probably have to wade through quite a few schmucks to get there. After all, there ARE feminist Jewish men out there. I don't think JDate is the magic solution for Jewish singles. Anyone who thinks JDate versus Match or e Harmony are better - not so sure about that. Only by using the word will we eventually break the stereotype. I just wanted to remind folks that JDate has its flaws, as we all do. When my husband and I met and married, neither one of us was a feminist, but we developed it together, and now we raise our daughters -- and SON -- to be great feminists.
But just like any other dating site, JDate has its fair share of weirdos and perverts, which speaks to a point I made earlier about the misconception that all Jews are good or trustworthy. it is part of one's identity), then no sense in finding out later.
Just because Jewish grandmas love JDate doesn't mean its users are on their best bubbe behavior. I'll think more on the matching theory and signaling. The problem is not that you are a feminist, it is that you were text messaging instead of talking on the phone.
I've come across stalkers, flashers and fetishizers. It's very hard to communicate nuance, levity, and emotion in email or text messaging.
And now that JDate is going mobile, we can carry the fable around in our pockets. After numerous girl friends - Jewish and not - have assured me that online dating is fine and dandy and not the end of the world, I succumbed to their convincing and joined Jdate.
They have a beautiful Jewish wedding, a couple beautiful Jewish babies and live happily ever after. What I really want to comment on are feminist Jewish men. Oh, and you gotta know that Jewish men are far more likely to want (not just be comfortable with, but actually want) an intellectual woman!
