Dating jewish women
Before online dating was huge, your options were limited to those who lived close to you, or who you knew through family, friends or work.
But due to the popularity of online dating apps, there is a lot less friction in the online dating market.
There are a number of possible explanations for this -- maybe women are just more likely to be religious, or Jewish women are more likely to join our service.
But regardless of the reason, this imbalance, added to the already uneven gender imbalance, does not create a pretty picture for single Jewish women in New York.
We did this because we realized there were twice as many single women in New York, and almost the opposite problem in San Francisco. But after just one weekend, two out of the 16 women ended up moving across the country for love! But while this is starting to become more known, we haven't even begun to examine how this affects women with limiting filters -- like religion.
I wish I had better numbers to back up just how insane this is, but even without them, just trust me -- it is. Out of our New York women, 19% identify as Jewish, and out of our New York men, 13% identify as Jewish -- that means there are nearly 50% more Jewish women than men in our database.
If we go back a decade or two, this huge imbalance may not have played such a large role.
This means that a nice but not special Jewish boy knows he has tons of options because of all of the matches he sees every day on Tinder or JSwipe.This mashup of the scarcity of Jewish men + the availability of Jewish women via dating apps = a fantasy dream world for guys, and a nightmare for women. Finding a 'nice Jewish boy' is now about as easy as finding 'a nice studio apartment for under ,500 in NYC.' So if you're wondering why your super smart, successful, beautiful perfect goddess of a daughter is still on the market, I have your answer.Last year, my matchmaking service, Dating Ring, stirred up some controversy when we flew a group of women cross country.
A common thing I hear as a matchmaker is that people would prefer to just 'wait' until the right guy comes along.But here's the thing -- with this big of a gender imbalance, it is very likely that this 'right' guy will never come along. The more options guys have, the pickier they become.
