I guess there comes a point in every single person’s life when they ask themselves, “has it really come to this?” When that finally happens, I guess TheJMom.com is where they will end up going.

At least the press release for their recent launch reads like a preview for a bad romantic comedy starring Jonah Hill, Natalie Portman and Jane Fonda as the meddling Jewish mother.

“While dating sites have been around and grown increasingly popular throughout the past decade, there has never been a Jewish site that gave exclusive access to parents and made dating an official family affair. Until now.

Www.TheJMom.com breaks the mold of standard Internet matchmaking.

Geared specifically toward Jewish parents and their single sons and daughters, the site offers a unique, but old-fashioned, concept: let mom decide. “ More parents are recognizing that making connections online can lead to love off- line,” said Danielle Weisberg, co-founder of TheJMom.com. “ TheJMom.com puts parents behind the keyboard and lets them do the clicking and the matching.”

For some reason, I highly doubt they actually got a crack team of Jewish mothers to sit behind MacBooks and match Josh Finkebaumstein with Becky Rosensilverman.  But then again, I wouldn’t totally doubt it either….
