“That’s pretty much the only way to describe it,” she explained. Wruble, who is Modern Orthodox, has found it hard being single in her community, with its emphasis on marriage and family.

“It was so sudden and traumatic.” However much she misses him, Wruble craves that amazing feeling again. But the Modern Orthodox community has recently started paying particular attention to second-time singles, helping them find a new match through specially tailored events and dedicated matchmakers.

And although the matchmakers won’t offer specific numbers, they do say that they’ve made matches that blossom into marriage.

“They just see how amazing their relationship is because they cherish it that much more,” said Bistritv.

She was reassured, she said, when “a number of participants came up to me and said when they go to regular singles events they always feel that they have to get out in the initial conversation that they have a 4-year-old at home, or they’ve been divorced, and they never know how the other person is going to react.” While Glatt acknowledged that she can’t know what happened after the YUConnects event, she said: “There were definitely dates that came out of it.

I don’t know of any longer-term relationships, but there definitely were dates.” In February, Bergen Connections held a wine-and-cheese tasting in Teaneck, N.

I have an idea of someone you may like.” I was taken aback. My tummy was all butterflies just imagining sitting at dinner with a date.
