LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 28, 2012) - JDate (www.JDate.com), the premier online Jewish community, today unveiled a Proposal Program committed to helping couples who have met on JDate achieve their dream marriage proposals. According to a 2011 survey by independent research company ResearchNow, JDate is responsible for more Jewish marriages than all other online dating sites combined, and with the launch of this new initiative the site will continue its commitment to strengthening the Jewish community and ensuring that Jewish traditions are sustained for generations to come.
"Finding the right match can be a challenging process and finding the perfect way to propose can be even more nerve-racking," said Greg Liberman, president and CEO of Spark Networks®. "We want to make our Success Stories' dreams come true by giving them the opportunity to conceive and execute extraordinary proposals that reflect their personalities, and combine creativity with the element of surprise for a unique experience that results in lifelong memories."
JDate encourages its JDate Alumni, who have found love through the Jewish singles community and are ready to propose marriage, to email mazeltov@JDate.com and share their stories. JDate staff will review the entries as they're received and work to help execute one proposal per quarter beginning in April 2012.
This initiative is not the first time JDate has helped couples find creative ways to take their relationships to the next level. JDate Success Story Howard and Jessica met on JDate and last summer JDate helped Howard propose to Jessica by asking the couple to participate in a video testimonial shoot. They shared their story on a live set with actors masquerading as a production crew (while the real production crew orchestrated the shoot from behind the scenes). Howard dropped to one knee in the middle of the testimonial and shocked Jessica by asking her to marry him. JDate also planned the ultimate New York City proposal for JDate alums Dan and Debbie. JDate worked with Dan to put his proposal on the JDate billboard in Times Square, completely surprising Debbie with hundreds of spectators looking on. Both Howard and Jessica and Dan and Debbie's inspiring videos can be found in JDate TV, the video section on JDate.com.
