Shidduch Dating: a system of matchmaking in which Jewish singles are introduced to one another in Orthodox Jewish communities for the purpose of marriage.

Such a simple concept yet, for most of us, it seems like an endless road of bad dates, awkward encounters, sob stories, and broken hearts until we finally find our bashert.

It is a place where we can vent, share stories, and gain insights on this inevitable stage of life while also understanding that we are not alone in our journey!

In doing so I hope to give each meidel an idea of which bachur may be shayich for them. Let’s get started:
