Jewishonline dating com
I suppose I brought this on myself – after all, I met the Public Praying Man (as he shall henceforth be known) on a Christian dating site. Firstly, because my Christian faith is important to me, and I would ideally like to share that with the guy I end up with. Before I've had a chance to utter the words: “Don't, please, just…don't,” he has already placed a firm hand on my arm, bowed his head and proceeded to launch into saying grace, audibly enough that several other tables in the joint have turned to stare in bemusement.Since we cannot catch everything, Sephardic Connection does not personally vouch for the members of this website.Ultimately, each individual is responsible to do their own screening, background checks, or reference checks if they desire.“It's pressure from my family but also pressure from myself – I think life would just be easier, and better, if my partner was Jewish,” she tells me.“I don’t really meet Jewish people in everyday life; I don’t go to Jewish events and my social circle isn’t particularly Jewish.It's a bit off-putting.” And for Leah, herself an interesting, intelligent young woman, the men on the site seem a little, well, uncool.
There's also the sense that some men are using their profile to advertise themselves as the perfect Jewish husband-in-waiting: “Lots of them are just looking for a wife, ASAP – they post pictures of them with their nieces and nephews, basically saying, 'look what a great dad I'll be'.
Of course, it's not just Christian women who try and find a partner who will share their culture and beliefs.
Leah*, an accountant from London, tells me how she joined JDate, the leading dating website for the Jewish community, because it's important to her that the potential father of her children would be able to teach them about their heritage.
It was all so banal, so pleasant, so utterly devoid of irony or character or anything interesting. Because while my religion is foundational, from then on in, I am still an individual with my own tastes, likes, dislikes and sense of humour.
Having a religion in common with someone doesn't actually guarantee you have anything else in common.
