Finding your soulmate isn’t always easy, but a new Jewish dating app would have us believe that true love could be just a swipe away.
JSwipe, which made its debut last Passover, already has 200,000 users in 70 countries connecting with one another with the hopes of finding their …or at least maybe someone to hang out with or hook up with.
The team’s engineers have been working out technical bugs on both the IOS and Android versions of the app that some users have encountered so that “swiping someone off their feet,” as Yarus put it, will become technologically smoother.
JSwipe has really taken off, but it’s too soon to tell whether all Jewish singles will want to let their finger do the swiping when it comes to searching for their soul mate and life partner.
People who sign up to use the app on their smartphone create a short bio and upload five photos of themselves from Facebook.
Users search for potential partners by filtering for geographical location, sexual orientation and other criteria.
Yarus, 28, sees JSwipe as a natural extension of the work he has done since his years studying entrepreneurship at Babson College near Boston. Judaism cuts across my whole life, so I want to share that with whomever I end up with,” he said.
