Being with an Israeli man means facing religious differences so I sincerely recommend that you state your needs and feelings regarding this subject before getting into a serious relationship. I challenge any matchmakers to go beyond their prejudices against single women in their thirties, their unfounded criticism of appearance, and reliance on fees and dowries to help me: Highly educated, intellectual, artistic, petite, relative good-looking and moderately religious female in her mid-thirties looking for a nice, normal, equally career-minded relative good-looking moderately religious Jewish male. What is certain the men are not what they seem, they routinely lie about their background, credentials and past relationships, with past marriages in the closet and a whole lot of baggage. According to a Pew Research Center survey, the intermarriage rate in the US is 48 percent among all American Jews, 60 percent among non-Orthodox Jews between the ages of , the number inflates to an overwhelming 71 percent not factoring Orthodox Jews, where 98 percent marry within the religion.
There are the men who have fetishes, enough said. A man who stands on his feet and is not looking for a woman to support him just because of his gender. If we can start off the dating process with a commitment and an emotional connection , then love has a safe place to grow. I feel cultural similitude with Catholics because they make up half of my family too.
