Want to meet that perfect fellow Jew? Of course you do. But how do you go about that on a dating site? Jewish dating online is hard enough as it is, but having to weed through everyone’s generic profiles to find someone you have something culturally compatible with is even more difficult. So how do you spot one who’s really going to be compatible with you online? Our friends at www.jewlicious.com came up with this festive spoof on the website, “Stuff White People Like”. We’ve narrowed it down to make it applicable for those of you looking for Jewish dating online. May it help you spot the right Jew for you.
According to Jewlicious, Jews love doctors. And really what mother doesn’t, Jew or not? If you’re not a doctor, you should definitely consider dating one. Not only are doctors respectable and make a handsome income, if you ever find yourself choking on a potato chip or developing a rash, your doctor partner can help you out free of charge. It’s a win-win situation.
2. Old-school Jewish food
Bagels, shmears, lox, knishes, kugels, (not to be confused with kegels), and latkes are just some of the retro nibbles that modern Jews love to chow on. No matter where you are in the world, (except maybe Israel), eating what your grandparents ate forges a kind of connection unlike any other.
3. Answering a question with another question
Is this a method used to throw people off? Confuse them when you yourself don’t have an answer? If you need any clarification, watch an episode of Seinfeld or Curb Your Enthusiasm. Enough said.
Got a headache? Chances are your fellow Jew will miraculously have a brain tumor. Does your aunt have sore muscles? Well, you may have muscular dystrophy. Exaggerated perhaps, but according to Jewlicious it’s a way of empathizing with your friends and making them feel better. So it’s not really one-upmanship, it’s more like the work of saints.
So you see it is possible to find the right match by using a Jewish dating website. You just have to look for the right clues in their profile and you’ll be good to go!
