Does DosiDate cost money?

Joining DosiDate is free. With the free basic membership, your profile will appear on the site, and you can respond to DosiDate members who send you messages. To initiate contact with other members yourself, you need to purchase a paid subscription. The price of a subscription is 36 NIS for one month, 99 NIS for 3 months, or 180 NIS for 6 months.

For more than 2 years - from DosiDate's opening in July 2001 until October 2003 - all services were completely free. Due to the growth of the site and the great expenses and work involved in developing and maintaining it, DosiDate is now charging for some services.

Who is DosiDate meant for?

DosiDate is for Jews in Israel who are shomrei mitzvot, a.k.a. "Orthodox".

How do you define "shomrei mitzvot" and "Orthodox"?

Good question. The short answer is: broadly, yet within normative Jewish tradition. In a more practical sense, the baseline is: believing in Hashem and normative Halacha, and being Shomer Shabbat and Kashrut. The site is meant for all people who meet those minimum requirements. If you are not Shomer Shabbat, this site is certainly not for you.

Can separated people join the site?

Only unmarried people may join DosiDate. If you are separated but not yet halachikally divorced, do not try to join.

Can I have more than one account on DosiDate?

No. Only one membership is allowed per person.

I am a shadchan/friend/relative of a single person and I want to register him/her on the site. Can I?

No. Every member should be signing up by him/herself and represent him/herself only. If you know people who want to get married, do not sign up in their name or for them - just suggest to them that they sign up themselves. Do not act as an agent for anyone else.

Can anyone see my email address?

No other member can see your email address, and this is the only sensitive information you disclose when signing up (you do not need to give your real name). Your email address is not seen at any time by anyone except for the webmaster. Any messages that are sent to you by another member are sent through the system. The system then sends a notification to your email address, informing you that you have a message waiting in your DosiDate message box (on the site). The member sending you the message at no time sees your email address. It is up to you if you wish to exchange email addresses or other contact information with another member.

What is the difference between Username and Display Name?

The username you choose is unique, meaning each member's username is different. Furthermore, the only people who ever see your username are you, and the webmaster. You use it solely to 1) log into the system and 2) identify yourself to the webmaster. You can not change your username.

Your display name is what other members see and how they identify you. Many people can have the same display name. You can change your display name whenever you want, by updating your profile.

Can I lie about my age, height or other personal information?

Members are expected to be truthful in their profiles; lying will not be tolerated. Nobody should be ashamed about their age or anything else. Anyone caught lying in their profile may be removed and banned from the site. Note that you do not need to use real name in your profile - this is not considered lying.

I signed up as a new member, but I am having trouble logging in. Why?

As soon as you complete a registration form, the system sends you a confirmation email to the email address you used for signing up. This email contains a unique confirmation link. You must click that link in order to activate your membership. Until you do this, you won't be able to log into the site.

I forgot my username and/or password. How can I be reminded?

If you've forgotten your password, but know your username, go to http://www.dosidate.org/forgot.php. If you've forgotten both your username and your password, go to http://www.dosidate.org/email.php.

How do I contact another member?

When you have run a search and found a member who you'd like to contact, use the message fields at the bottom of his/her profile page. When you click on the Send Message button, your message will appear in the member's DosiDate message box. The system will then send an email message to the member, informing him/her that there is a message waiting for him/her on the site.

How do I suspend or remove myself from the site?

There are two ways to remove yourself from the DosiDate site; to suspend your membership temporarily, or to delete it permanently. Both options are accessible from the Manage Account page after you log in to the system.

Suspend:: When you do not want to appear on the site or use it, but plan on becoming active again later, suspend your membership. Your data is saved in the system, but nobody can find or view your profile. Messages that you have sent to other members remain in their message boxes so log as they don't delete them. However they can't respond to your messages as long as your membership is suspended.

Delete:: When you are sure that you never want to use the system again, you can delete your membership permanently. This removes all your data from the DosiDate database, and deletes any messages you sent to other members. If you later decide that you want to rejoin, you must sign up as a new member, with no connection to an old membership.
