Dating in the modern age can be an incredibly frustrating experience. There are so many apps that promise a place for you to meet potential partners, but many people trying these apps find only people looking for casual hook ups and a culture of dismissing people based on a handful of photos and a 100-word description. In our dating section of the Jwall, we want to take dating back to the good old days while still being able to take advantage of the modern day methods of communicating via the internet! You can use your JewSurf profile like an online dating profile. Simply click on your username, go to "edit profile" and put your marital status as "single" and say "yes" to being interested in dating, so that other people in the community know that you might be interested in talking to them. In your about section, you may list if you're interested in men, women, or any gender! You can also use the about section to list some interesting information about yourself such as your hobbies, profession, if you have any children or pets, or anything else that is an important part of who you are. You can get people interested by posting about yourself on the Dating Jwall. Only registered JewSurf users are able to see the posts on the dating wall, and you can share as much or as little about yourself as you like. We suggest post titles such as "Women in New York seeking a man who loves the great outdoors and Japanese food" A picture is worth a thousand words, so it is also good to attach a photo of yourself to your post or to upload a profile picture. When looking for a potential date to talk to, you can filter the Jwall Dating section via location. If you want to meet someone in your town you can narrow down your search to one city, or you can search a region, the entire country or even the whole world. The love of your life may be a couple of time zones away! It is possible for find potential partners anywhere on the JewSurf website. You can join in discussions on forum posts about topics you are passionate about, whether that be cooking, music, film or anything else! If you enjoy the comment conversation you have with someone, you can click on their profile to see if they are single and interested in dating. The more you interact with people on different parts of the JewSurf website, the more people will discover you and grow to like you, as friends or as potential dates. If you find someone you are interested in on JewSurf, you can send them a private message. Use this private message as an opportunity to introduce yourself: let them know basic things like your first name, age, interests, location and then ask them if they would be interested in chatting to you further! You can use the JewSurf private message service to establish a connection with someone before getting to know them better through an online video call. A video call is a great low risk way of virtually meeting up with someone for the first time from the comfort of your own home. Organize a few video calls with someone first to get to know each other and build trust before meeting this person out in the real world. You don't need to treat this initial video call like a business meeting, so have fun with it! You can suggest you both bring a drink and some snacks to the Zoom call to feel more relaxed or you can organize an activity to do together in your separate homes. Some options include watching a movie at the same time and then discussing it afterward, playing a game together such as Pictionary or charades, or evening cooking the same meal together. The possibilities for online dates are endless if you are willing to get creative! Get posting on the Jwall, your next perfect partner could be waiting for you in the JewSurf community!
