Dating suggestion

Most of the women the site matched me with wouldn’t risk even a simple online chat with me.

Meanwhile, more and more of my friends were getting engaged, more and more of them started families, and I had never dated anyone for more than a few weeks. If Jewish women weren’t attracted to me, I’d go find women who were.

By the end of the weekend, we were officially dating.

We would chat with each other online virtually every day while I was in college, and even after I graduated. Before long the site gave me a listing of potential Jewish candidates.

Though I was excited by these possibilities at first, the resulting dates could best be compared to episodes.

By the time I graduated, I’d still never been in anything approaching a serious relationship. She lived in New Hampshire, shared all of my nerdy hobbies, had a great sense of humor, and looked like a younger blonde version of geek icon Gillian Anderson from .

She had a great sense of humor, a wonderful smile, and an honesty that I found refreshing.

My parents liked Alicia, but not the fact that she wasn’t Jewish.

My paternal grandparents were more concerned; I promised them that I would only marry a Jewish girl.

One of my dates somehow managed to steer every discussion, no matter how unrelated, to the topic of cheesecake.

Another had no discernible personality or strong feelings about anything, leading to a date in which I she responded to everything I had to say with an affectless “yeah” or “uh huh.” But it wasn’t all their fault: I can’t say that I created the most enticing profile.

Unlike me, she hadn’t dreamed of meeting someone Jewish and having a Jewish wedding.
