On June 18, 2009, I instituted my JDate challenge. Yes, folks, I challenged JDate to a duel. Threw down the “find me a mate” gauntlet. I’m emailing one man a day from JDate and recording the results here.
On 6-19 I received an email from the Manager, Public and Community Relations of JDate. She offered me a free upgrade to a spotlight profile, as well as a consult with their customer service reps to help me create the best profile ever. You betcha – thanks (and, boy, don’t you LOVE technology?).
C’mon JDate . . . show your stuff
JDate emails (bold show a connection of some kind):

6-20-09: email #3, opened 6-20, received response 6-20, sent my cell phone number 6-21, he called 6-22, we spoke briefly, he called back
6-21-09: email #4, opened 6-24, responded that he’s not dating due to a sick parent (that had better be true – otherwise it’s REALLY bad karma)

6-23-09: email #6: opened, rejected

I suspended the JDate challenge because I hated doing it. I still think it sucks.
