“Dating can be hard for anyone,” explained Michelle Lewis, the head matchmaker and general manager of the j-junction site.
“Here in Australia, Jewish singles, if they can’t travel to the US or Europe to date, have an especially hard time, because the dating pool simply isn’t that big.” j-junction was created to help these singles meet each other in a more discreet and confidential manner than online dating.
You don’t have to go through that experience of meeting someone fascinating at a party, only to find out they’re leaving to London the next day.
The revamped and updated j-junction Aussie Jewish Dating site launched on March 25, 2010 and now has all of the key matchmaking features and functionality of the JRetro Match and Saw You At Sinai platform.
Profiles are available to the matchmakers first, before they are matched and shown to other members.
Having a matchmaker review the profiles, and making calls to members enables fraudulent profiles to be caught before they are visible to those dating online.
In other words, if you live in Australia and have lots of single friends, you better start keeping your weekends free—you’re going to have a lot of weddings to attend.
In response, Jewish Dating Site JRetro has produced a list of ways to identify scammers so that online daters will be aware of it, to prevent devastating consequences.
Unlike other online Jewish dating services, JRetro Match combines the human element of hands-on matchmaking with the convenience, ease and real-time of the Internet.
The site was designed so technology hones in on corresponding dating specifications and experienced matchmakers, review the more subtle personality and compatibility aspects of the match before members’ profiles are shown to each other.
JRetro is one of those popular and successful services, and serves the Jewish singles community worldwide.
JRetro Match, and partner site Saw You At (which focuses on the Orthodox Jewish community), has the differential advantage over other sites by having 350 dedicated matchmakers setting up its members, leading to over 1,300 members married.
