Are you Jewish and looking for love? As you can probably tell us, it’s hard to find! Just because there are many nice people in the world certainly doesn’t mean you’re going to find the perfect match.
There are plenty of nice guys and nice girls that just don’t match you in terms of personality. That might not match you in body type, values and goals, or even dare we say, faith and culture. That’s something many Jewish singles today take seriously.
Some orthodox Jews for example, will not marry anyone who isn’t Jewish and orthodox at that. Others may be more liberal minded when it comes to particular faith, but they still want to marry someone they feel comfortable with; another Jewish person.
Why Does It Matter?
If you’re wondering yourself if it really matters, you aren’t the first. Sure, there are many compatible singles out there and some of them you may really like. But do they share your values as a Jewish person?
Jewish families are very close. We share the holidays and the culture. Not all of us are religious, necessarily but there are many traditions that unite us as a people, not to mention the history.
Stick with Who You Know
In the end, you really do want to stick with somebody who knows you. They know where you come from, they know where you are going. They don’t just respect your values and goals—they are heading in the same direction. It’s so much easier to go through life when you have someone that’s evenly matched with you.
Someone who doesn’t share your faith or your culture, someone that doesn’t appreciate what it means to be Jewish, might not be able to nurture you the way you need. They speak your language but don’t really speak to you, not the way you want.
What’s really nice is that Jewish dating sites can help you connect to most of the Jewish community. Using an app or a website can help you find eligible singles in the area or even across the state, or country.
You don’t have to “take chances” in love. You don’t have to accidentally stumble into love. That’s dangerous thinking, and yet how many people do exactly that? They don’t even think about what kind of partner they want. They just wait until they happen to meet someone special.
The problem here is that you leave your heart open for anyone, even the wrong type of person, to come along and grab your attention. Some just want one night stands. Some may want commitment, but they might be the worst kind of partner for you.
What if your partner is prone to rage? What if he or she is unfaithful? Even if you do care for somebody, these are serious flaws that can undermine a good marriage.
The smart thing to do is to plan for your future. Don’t fall in love by accident. Find someone who deserves you, and someone you deserve.
