I always thought of myself as a loner. I have a very busy practice, which doesn’t leave me much time for myself, and I am an avid reader on top of that, so I never really felt the need for companionship until a few years ago. When I finally woke up and realized life would be a lot more fun if I had someone to share it with, I found myself completely inept. I had not dated in a long time and I had to come to grips with the fact that things had changed tremendously since my young adult years. Following the advice of a friend, I joined an online Jewish dating site and got a few dates out of it. They were all rather disappointing and I ended up hating the whole process. The idea of selecting people in a “catalog” is very unappealing to me and I soon came to realize that I was not very good at making choices for myself. That’s when my cousin suggested I used Simantov. It didn’t take much convincing. I think by that time I was ready to take this seriously. I was immediately impressed by the way Simantov operates. They have a lot of experience and it shows. After the first conversation with Mr. Weber, I had already found out things I didn’t know about myself. I liked his kind but rather firm attitude and the fact that he seemed to know what he was doing. I found the whole experience very comforting: I felt that I could relax and that he would take care of things. And he did. A couple of weeks after my initial interview, I got a phone call giving me some basic information about my first date. The date was not a “success” but the lady was a lot closer to the type of companion I was looking for than the women I had found myself online. So I knew we were on the right path. Over the next year and a half I was introduced to a few more ladies, and although I didn’t feel a real connection with them -or they with me- they were all lovely women. So when I finally met Lisa, it felt like everything was coming into place. She is great, and we are perfectly compatible. As a matter of fact we keep getting surprised at how many things we have in common. I would say it is miraculous but in reality none of this would have happened without the skill and intuition of Mr. Weber!
