Yes, folks, that is indeed the title of the mockumentary style new TV show in which I play Sara Rappaport, a Jewish girl looking for love in New York via the internet (I’m an actress, in case I didn’t mention that). Although the show is scripted, a lot of it is improv based, so I get to stick my two cents on dating into some of the dialogue.
A lot of interesting ideas are discussed in the show- one of them that I became particularly intrigued with is the concept of settling when you marry someone. The idea is that because it is so unlikely that we will find our ideal mate (and because, for many of us, our ideal mate is completely unrealistic), we end up settling for whoever it is that we do marry.
After thinking about this for a while (and my character going on and on about how unromantic the concept is), I think that this idea has merit. In order to be happy with someone, and to commit ourselves to them monogamously and otherwise, we must accept the fact that they have flaws- and for many of us this may be “settling,” or merely being realistic, because our “ideal mate,” who has lived in our head for years, is flawless.
And let’s face it- even Prince Charming probably has issues. I mean, please, he’s probably off fighting dragons all the time and never sees his wife.

and here is the link to the first episode. This is the first of eight episodes in the season.
If you would rather, you can also watch the show on demand for free. Go to Entertainment on Demand, and click on Shalom TV, and then From Date to Mate.
Also, although on the show my character may belong to a different dating website, my full endorsement goes with Meezoog, as it is the most technologically advanced and savvy way to meet someone compatible via the web.
Find your date, or your mate, or both, now on Meezoog.
