JustKibbitz Lets Daters Outsource Their Romantic Choices to Their Mothers
In a world increasingly ruled by algorithms, one new dating site is taking a definitely old-school approach to matchmaking. JustKibbitz caters to Jewish daters who want to entrust their most important romantic choices to the one person who always has our backs: our mothers.
It’s worth keeping in mind that this approach isn’t nearly as crazy as it sounds. In fact, for most of human history, “dating” wasn’t a thing. Instead, parents – and especially mothers – bargained with other families to determine who could offer the best match to their beloved son or daughter.
In Hebrew, “kibbitz” means something like “chit-chat” in modern English, though occasionally it’s chatter with the intent to offer advice, and that’s a pretty fair summary of the approach JustKibbitz takes. You, the user, consent to let your mother swipe through your potential matches and choose who they think would be the right fit for you. If a match occurs, you get final approval, and if a date happens, your mother has the option of pre-paying for the date (usually via Starbucks gift cards), all of which takes a lot of stress out of your hands.
