    The CR is so serious lately!

    With threads like:

    Engaged on 3rd date

    Changing a rabbi through a text on the third date

    school yard bullying

    The World To Come and Gilgulim

    Separate seating at Weddings

    Girl I want to get engaged to wants me to change my Rabbi

    Yavam inheriting father who was a ger

    Ending it after 10 dates over text

    it’s just so boring around here.

    At first I thought it was the three weeks, so I understood. But now it’s already Tu B’Av and there are a maximum of 3 funny threads on the main page, and they are not even “hot”!

    Soon it’s gonna be Elul and any funny threads will be held at, so we got to do it now!

    I miss ZeesKite! 🙁

    I’ll get right to work, SiDi. Thank you for alerting me to this dilemma.

    @sidi – I’ll probably have to temporarily disappear or hope the Mods will have mercy on me during the month of Elul if that’s the case.

    I’ll cover for ya – 29

    Bookworm, if I remember correctly, there were some members who disliked the funny threads during Elul but those who were into didn’t pay much attention.

    Yes, there are times to be serious but that doesn’t mean talking Shidduchim 24/7! And we are allowed a laugh one in a while!

    This is so funny… Just today I was thinking of the need to make one (last, oh really) bash party here. SiDi – you beat me (ouch).

    What happened to the funny side?

    The CR has been invaded by very very serious creatures.

    You would not believe how seriously & literally other posters take my comments.

    I guess I shouldn’t complain.

    Nice to know a comment is actually read by someone other than a mod from time to time.

    But some of the responses I see to my posts and others leave me wondering if maybe a serious epidemic of humor impairment might be the real cause of the shidduch crisis and global warming.

    Hey, what was wrong with my post?

    #1051057

    There is no shidduch crisis. A guy in Meshpacha said so. (problem is only for those that don’t have yet a meshpacha)

    I agree! It’s no fun coming here anymore! But I have hope that we can change that…

    This is a mysterious post. If you can guess my meaning, shout “Color War!” at the top of your lungs and maybe I’ll hear you.

    Just thought I’d point out that there’s a shidduch thread crisis today in the CR.

    1. Frum Yeshiva working boy

    2. If you could change the Shidduch System

    3. Parents and Shidduchim

    4. 3 most important qualities to look for in a shidduch

    5. Is this normal for yeshiva bochurim (OK, more shalom bayis than ‘shidduchim’, maybe)

    6. Beshow vs. Dating

    7. Googling your Date

    8. On the subject of shidduchim…

    Are the threads started by the boys three years older than the threads started by the girls?

    I think you’re right, DY.

    Let’s offer incentives for the boys to start more threads, so we can reduce the average age differential.

    Who wants to call R’ Rechnitz?

    I think it’s safe to say that nothing has changed since I started this thread four months ago… Maybe even got worse!

    We are now in the dead of winter. Short days, long dark nights. Cold, wet and yucky weather… And Purim is not for another two months! We need some excitement, some fun!

    Peoplach, I am begging you, forget all the Shidduch threads! Let’s make the CR the geshmakie place it used to be!

    The CR changed dramatically every few months cuz people are constantly joining and leaving… We just have to wait this cycle out. Things have to change sometime soon!

    “Interesting” runs extremely short in describing me. (I know my English is poor, thunk is beginning to function again.. was shut for maintenance)

    no nonsense, it should read exciting.

    and btw someone (ok, not really a someone) DID enter. And then exit.

    #1051075

    Yes, the Italian wasn’t there to scare him away.

    WOW!!!

    Where do you store all that information. By me, it’s gone more or less when I type or say it.

    And peoplach is a term used for laughing humans.
