  • 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.

Overall: is JDate.com a Scam or Trusted Site?

This site is specifically for people who are Jewish and looking for long-term relationships. It says it is an international 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 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.

    In a time when most of the dating sites are decreasing their prices, and are trying to provide the best customer support, Jdate comes and increases the prices, and makes it just double. Is the site really worth it? NO WAY! Their customer support sucks really big time. I did not get any matches from them. They have profiles which are 5 years old, and are just active now, but they just don’t care. And, after I requested them to stop charging me, and cancel my registration, they simply ignored my request, and kept me on auto renewal. Hey don’t even have good filters, the people that I got were some 3,000 miles from me. Stay away from this site!

    The secret admirer feature is just another fancy way to allow stalkers and scammers to keep an eye on you. Please this feature is not necessary and should be removed. Dear Customer Service please make a stronger effort to respond to our complaints or plea for assistance. The site is not as easy to understand and use so a little help when needed would be good.

    Even if the site does offer a questionnaire before completing profile. I do still feel that many individuals lie about their faith and yes, commitment to their faith. With this said, after chatting with someone for a while only to realize that they are not actually Jewish is very disturbing emotionally. We are looking for strictly Jewish partners. Is there any possibility of removing non- Jewish members?
