Jdate® Sparks Romance in the UK

Premier Jewish Online Personals Site Gets a British Makeover at www.jdate.co.uk

LONDON--(Marketwire - April 29, 2008) - JDate, the leading online community for Jewish singles, launched a sister-site in the UK today, www.JDate.co.uk, to expand its network to Jewish daters worldwide. Already available in Hebrew, English, and French, JDate.co.uk is designed specifically for the UK market. In addition to JDate's already-popular online features including chat, instant message, and message boards, JDate will offer a variety of UK-based parties and events to bring Jewish UK singles together offline as well.

With nearly 300,000 Jewish residents, the UK is home to the fifth largest Jewish population in the world and represents a growing demand and opportunity for Jewish singles to meet online, date and find their soul mates.

"We are thrilled to bridge the Atlantic divide and re-introduce the UK Jewish community to JDate," stated Greg Liberman, President and Chief Operating Officer of Spark Networks, Inc. "It is a natural evolution that this emerging Jewish group will have the chance to utilize all of the site's great features to meet their special someone."
