JDate.com Main Features Reviewed
After signing up, you complete a profile that asks a series of questions including your commitment to the Jewish faith. The site then presents you with potentially suitable matches. You can choose to contact these or find your own; the site shows you compatibility ratings for the people you identify. You can also look up people based on location to see people you can meet easily.
You can communicate with others through emails, chat, instant messaging and message boards. If you aren’t sure what to say, you can ‘flirt’ with someone, letting them know you’re interested. You can also become a ‘secret admirer’ until you know if the person you’re interested in is interested in you.
Other features include a Jewish holiday calendar, blog, online magazine that offers advice and information and a synagogue directory.

JDate.com is free to try and offers some basic features without you having to become a member. These features are limited. If you decide to sign-up for JDate.com, you pay a monthly membership fee. There are two levels – upgrade and premium.
This site is specifically for people who are Jewish and looking for long-term relationships. It says it is an international dating site. However, most members are in the US, making international matches unlikely. JDate.com reviews suggest that a lot of these members are also non-Jewish, making matches based on faith harder to make. Getting onto the ru brides site is easy as JDate.com doesn’t run verification checks, but this can lead to potential scams as there is no guarantee people are on the site for genuine reasons. Where this has happened, reviews show that JDate.com’s customer service response has been inadequate and promised refunds hadn’t been made, suggesting that JDate.com is not as legitimate as it might initially seem.
