JDate® Members Celebrate Jewish Mothers


BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., May 11, 2006 – In celebration of Jewish mothers – whether they’re meddlers or mensches – JDate, the leading provider of online personals services for Jewish singles, asked JDaters to share their most meddlesome mom memories, and Linda Verbit’s mother took the top prize, lox, stock and bagel.

“I came home one night and my mother declared, ‘Guess what I did today? I put you on JDate!’,” said Verbit, a Philadelphia resident. Later, after going on a date with a JDater named Jeremy, she told her mother she was going to cancel. “My pushy mother finally convinced me to give Jeremy a second chance. Here we are a year and a half later, and I’m totally in love with this JDate boy, all thanks to my meddlesome mother.”

After winning a free one year Premium Membership to JDate, Verbit declined. “I don’t need the one year free… I already found someone special on JDate!”

Moms will always look out for those they love, even if it means managing their dating lives. If your mother or someone else you know needs help on the dating scene, call (877) 453-3861 to give the Gift of JDate. It’s the perfect present for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or other upcoming holidays or graduations.  You could be the push that helps your mom, dad, family member or friend find true love!
