Brooklyn Heights Man is Totally OK with Casual Dating Site

The New York Daily News reports on “Web entrepreneur Elissa Shevinsky” (pictured) who has created two dating sites dedicated to casual encounters. “I am here to help Brooklyn get together,” she tells the tabloid, adding, “And I don’t judge what they are going to do.”

Her sites are for Jewish singles (swingles if you dare) and for the gentiles. They are currently in a “private beta” which means you’ll need to apply for an invite to join in on the fun. Oy to the vey indeed.

As for Shevinsky, her LinkedIn profile reflects the life of a serial entrepreneur. The 33 year old lists her specialties as “Growth Hacker. Hustler. Biz Dev. Partnerships. Project Management. Software Development. Coffee Roasting.”

But what’s all of this got to do with Brooklyn Heights you ask? THIS GUY:

NYDN: “Normally you think of Jewish culture in Brooklyn as people in Borough Park with fur hats,” said Brooklyn Heights tech writer Josh Ross, 38, who is trying to join Jspot. “There’s a lot of people who are culturally Jewish…(and) fine with something more casual.”

    You’re both right! The Clinton administration worked mightily hard to put us on an even financial keel, which W blew, and Social Security *is* ridiculous as a pension system, seeing as the bucks aren’t invested. Medicare is actually pretty efficient, if you don’t demand that your medical accounts be investment accounts, but medical costs, on the other hand…

    Who’d have thought that a post about Jews getting laid would turn into a trite political/economic debate?

    @ David on Middagh – the Clinton adminstration had not been that great our portfolio began to tank halfway through the first term.

    Clinton inherited an economic boomlet from Geroge W. H. Walker Bush he had a mild boom for the wealthy handed to him Clinton economics did nothing for the little people.

    Under Clinton healthcare took a hit to still not recover healthcare has never been worse the attempt at healthcare reform by Hillary Clinton gave every insurance company the green light to STOP paying — and they did!

    It all blew up to become “managed care”

    Managed care was ushered in by the Clinton adminstration.

    Before Clinton with health insurance we had those who had benefits and those who had no benefits now those who have benefits have so much less benefit.

    Clinton was NOT the great president the media paints him to be in fact look between the lines to see he was not that great.

    Nah, Clinton didn’t do anything for the little guy. Except create an incredible number of jobs of course.

    And Clinton was terrible for the stock market as well.

    “On January 20, 1993, the first day of Bill Clinton’s 1st term as president, the Dow Jones closed at 3,241

    On January 19, 2001, the last day of Bill Clinton’s 2nd term as president, the Dow Jones closed at 10,587

    That is a 226% gain in the stock market during Clinton’s 8 years.”

    @mr.crusty they will never get it. It is a hopeless argument.

  • Mr. Crusty

    I know but every now and then I have to give it a try.

  • pankymom

    Gerry was in grad school or the seminary or rehab during the Clinton years and so didn’t field the headhunter calls during that period of 4% unemployment in NYC. OMG, my cat had a job coding web pages then.
