One of the largest and most affordable dating websites for single Jews is JPeopleMeet.com. This site offers paid and free membership options with its sophisticated site design that is easy to navigate for users of all ages. It has steady membership of around 36,000 users per month and is part of a group of over 20 niche dating websites like BBPeopleMeet, BlackPeopleMeet, SeniorPeopleMeet ect. It seems to be a popular choice among the Jewish singles community, but does not offer nearly the same diversity in features as other sites in this market.
The simplified approach to profile setup is a welcomed feature of JPeopleMeet.com. When you click to search matches, you will be prompted to sign up for your free account by answering the standard basic questions such as age, location, and what you are seeking. Users are prompted to fill out more of their profile and upload a picture, but this can be skipped.
The site focuses on created a well-rounded profile for potential matches to view. In general, most users fill their profile out in its entirety to help represent themselves in the best manner possible. There are a few sections that make up your profile.
·About. This section is where you will enter what you are looking for, educational background, job title, income, Synagogue affiliation, political views, heights and weight. All the basic information you would want a match to know about you, and you about them.
·Additional Information. Three short sections are designed to increase your profile views and interaction from other users. This additional information comes in the form of “A little about me…”, “About the one I’m looking for…” and “I’d just like to add…”. As the headings suggest, these are where you describe the love you want in your life and a little about yourself.
·Personality Questions. Users are also invited to answer a few common questions about their personality which include: Do you enjoy cooking?, Are you romantic?, How much do you like reading?, and How patient to you consider yourself?.
As a paid subscriber, you have access to send and receive emails, utilize the in-site instant messaging service, and see who has viewed or shown interest in your profile. The free plan doesn’t offer these features, but is still functional enough to let you search matches and find your next great love.
