Matchmaker, matchmaker, swipe me a match
Considering that there are dating apps for farmers looking for other famers, it should hardly be a surprise that there’s a new Tinder specifically geared towards Jewish singles.
JSwipe is a Tinder derivative that launched on the first day of Passover, perhaps aiming to distract a bread-starved consumer base with pictures of nearby Jewish matches. After clarifying your Jewish affiliation (Orthodox? Willing to convert?) and eating tendencies (What’s your stance on cheeseburgers?), users are free to swipe right (which prompts a happy face Star of David) and left (sad face Star of David) to their Semitic-seeking hearts’ content.
And why stop at just one Jewish Tinder alternative?
There’s also JCrush, an app that launched in early April for the less decisive lover. Not only do users have a “Maybe” option, but even if they swipe left for no (in this case shown by a red “x” mark with “Oy Vey” written across the symbol) they can go back to change their minds.
Note: Religious affiliation doesn’t assure quality control. Some mensch matches apparently believe “Mazel Tov, sweet cheeks!” is an appropriate conversation starter.
