As long as you tell them right off the bat that you are not Jewish but that you have some forebearers (spelling?) who were Jewish, you should have no worries. As it is today, not many of us marry Jewish people anyway. I think that being happy is a universal desire and that takes precedence over anything.

Yeah. I don't know if it would be an idea I should be serious about or not, but I would have to tread lightly and clearly if I did. I do dig the culture, though more the secular-ish and academic side.

I think that most Jews today are into the secular culture, the literature, and the community. 20th century American Judaism has been less spiritual. This is written about in many books by Jewish writers. They are content with the cultural connections, but recently some want more. Check out the book and the movie, "The Jew in the Lotus".
But, back to the idea of you going to JDate. I think it is OK. It is great to explore connections with one's ancestors. You are very open-minded and willing to learn, so depending upon whom you meet, you could get a taste of either or both the secular and the religious. I think that if you met a girlfriend through JDate, she'd be fortunate to have you as a partner. You can offer her many insights and experiences and teach her how to show you what it means to be Jewish, from her perspective.

my 30-something cousin met his wife on JDate in 2001 and they were maierrd in 2003. he was fortunate to meet someone who didn't personify the bad stereotype that often accompanies JDate in conversation. JUST TO CLARIFY: this does NOT mean that every woman or man on JDate is weird, desperate, too religious, too old, etc. but i've heard some wacky stories. not to mention the fact that one of my close friend's 25-year-old brother and 50-something aunt are on there and it creeps her out a little. i tried JDate in 2004, but refused to pay the fees so i was limited to a 30-day free trial membership. out of that free round came two dates with the same guy, who actually seemed cool but then relocated to Baltimore for a new job. it wasn't a huge loss, but it was nice to meet someone that had things in common with me besides religion. the fees were one reason why i never joined. the other was due to the fact that i found JDate to be a little closed-minded. i think it's only fair for gay/lesbians to be able to utilize the site as well (i'm straight). the same applies to those who are in the process of converting. there was some article about how non-Jews are using the site because they want to date and marry Jews, and some actually want to convert. this just goes to show that Jews are quite a catch, not just to other Jews but to everyone.
