‘SeeYouInIsrael’ members run the gamut from those who prefer someone headed towards Israel to those who will only date future Olim. Ian is middle of the road on this issue. “I’m open to the idea of living in Israel and I prefer to meet someone who is also open to that, but it’s not a make-or-break thing for me.
For Sarah, on the other hand, living in Israel is a deal breaker. Sarah, who works in the non-profit sector, moved to Israel just over a year ago and has told the matchmakers of ‘SeeYouInIsrael’ that she is only interested in men who are certain they are going to make Aliyah. “I’m not going to date someone who is not on that path,” she explains.
Moshe, a born and bred Israeli who lives in Tel Aviv, is also a member of ‘SeeYouInIsrael’. Why would a native sabra look for his other half on an Aliyah dating site? “I see myself as a patriot,” he explains. “When people see Israel as their home and plan to make Aliyah, it shows character.” Moshe doesn’t take Israel for granted and knows that Olim don’t either. “Finding the right person is more than a list of attributes to check off,” he admits. Yet it’s clear that meeting women through ‘SeeYouInIsrael’ gets things off to a strong start. “The bottom line for me is that through the matchmakers I’ve met women I was interested in, but if I had only seen their profile, together with another 100 profiles, I wouldn’t have bothered. Sometimes, and perhaps in many cases, someone else might understand what you need better than you understand it yourself.”
