Jewish dating site, JWed, has produced a virtual dating initiative as more people remain home in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
JWed, which has offices in New York and Tel Aviv, developed the idea to ensure that the coronavirus did not dissuade couples from dating.
Chief executive of JWed, Ben Rabizadeh, said: “JWed is doing everything we can to mitigate the toll the virus may have on the dating lives of Jewish singles. By providing the option to date from home, JWed can continue to help singles find their soulmates during these challenging times.”
The initiative, which will include video chat and date scheduler features, is not yet available to the public but JWed assures customers it is working full-time to get it launched as soon as possible.
Rabizadeh added: “We envision a virtual dating experience that mirrors the authenticity of a night out in Central Park—daters will still dress up, have stimulating conversations, and engage in the same witty banter that they’d expect on an in-person date. The only difference will be the screen between them.”
JWed is a family-run, Jewish-only dating site aimed at marriage-minded singles. The site boasts a wide range of people from different cultural and religious backgrounds and of diverse ages and interests.
The site uses a “location graph” that allows daters to specify where they grew up, want to live, and their ideal holiday destinations meaning profiles appear in more location searches.
There is the possibility that the coronavirus will impact other dating companies including Match Group. American financial services company, Jefferies, has already predicted that the company’s share price will drop due to the continuing threat from the virus.
