Just listen to your date, share your thoughts, and enjoy the moment.
So spend some time thinking about how important your Jewish identity is to you.
Do you envision a life in which you are conscious of your Judaism, maintain some Jewish tradition, and/or raise your children as Jews?
Additionally, Jdate claims it owns the patent on software that “confidentially determines matches and notifies users of mutual matches in feelings and interests.” Jswipe, like Tinder, notifies users when their romantic interest ‘swipes right’ on their picture, violating Jdate’s patent.
In other words, Jdate’s snap legal team managed to secure an intellectual property portfolio broader than the Grand Canyon, with potential copyright infringement claims over countless dating sites, many of which “confidentially” match singles.
As we enter the month of Adar, we are told to increase our sense of joy and happiness! In the Western culture that we are all so subtly influenced by, happiness is achieved by acquiring possessions, “positions” (careers), fame, things that are external to us.

(From the Ferenstein Wire) — Jdate, the popular dating service responsible for more Jewish hookups than a bottle of Manischewitz, is playing hardball in the dog-eat-dog world of nice Jewish match-making.
Jdate’s parent company, Spark Networks, discreetly filed a lawsuit late last year against Jswipe, the ‘Tinder for Jews’ dating app, claiming intellectual property over the letter “J” within the Jewish dating scene (the company refers to the branding as the “J-family”).
In Judaism we find the opposite phenomenon: happiness is linked to something very deep and very internal, completely independent of outer circumstances.
