I SHOULD MARKET THIS IDEA, AND I WILL MAKE MILLIONS!
TAKE A MINUTE AND READ THIS ARTICLE!
have to find out who knows them and is willing to read it.
SHIDDUCH DATING NEEDS A NEW TWIST!
NOBODY KNOWS THEMSELVES BETTER THAN THEY DO!
COFFE ROOM + DATING+ SHIDDUCHIM= A NEW SHIDDUCH SUCCESS TWIST!
THIS CREATES AN OPPORTUNITY FOR PEOPLE ON THE MARKET TO TAKE THE FRONT SEAT, WHILE BEING IN THE BACK SEAT, UNDER RADOR, AND LETS THEM ACT AND TAKE A DOGMATIC APPROACH BY THEMSELVES, W/O ANYONE IN MIDDLE!
If they like what the other person said based on their conversation, than they let YWN know, and they send each of them the full profile!July 11, 2012 12:01 am at 12:01 am #884577interjectionParticipant
brilliant!! watch the snl on myspace. i think they agree with you.July 11, 2012 12:46 am at 12:46 am #884578Song of BlessingParticipant
Interesting concept but you need to be more clear… how if someone decides they want to meet someone after they conversed with them bla bla bla… do they contact that person without letting everyone know who they are? Is that something they’d contact YW for?
But its also still DIY. and getting to know someone online isn’t the same as face to face. What you’re proposing is online dating – if you go on frumster thats also annon you don’t have to give your real name – you don’t have to post your face – you can get to know each other without any details except for gender and brief description etc… then if you want to you can exchange other info.
The POINT of a Kosher Shidduch is to eliminate the emotions and time spent on getting to know someone who its really quite straight forward that they’re not for you. (You want cholov yisroel only – and they don’t care…). It can be basic things like that, that you wont find out till you already like the person. That is what Shadchanim are trying to avoid….July 11, 2012 1:06 am at 1:06 am #884579BronyParticipant

Let’s call that thread it’s own special name.
How about: “Saw You at Sinai”?July 11, 2012 5:26 am at 5:26 am #884582JustHavingFunParticipant

I think it’s a great idea but with no practical application at this site. The whole point of the YWN site is that it is anonymous (not a good thing when one is trying to meet one’s bashert). Try to work on the idea a bit more; it has potential.July 11, 2012 12:58 pm at 12:58 pm #884584ChortkovParticipant
I don’t really get it. Why is that better than Facebook?
And how exactly are you going to arrange a date without checking out the person –> His name, his family, WHO he is? What is stopping him from making a fake identity and still trapping innocent targets???
And, how will you get the ID of the person you want to date [unless it is a virtual marriage you are planning] – I remember once a guy was complaining that he didn’t have enough money to fly to a wedding [his brother’s?] in Israel, and two posters offered to donate $100 each towards his airfare – and as far as i could tell from the posters, the YWN CR Mods didn’t pass on the details. Why should they here? I post knowing that nobody can find out my true identity…July 12, 2012 2:26 am at 2:26 am #884585
Sounds like a great idea. You can virtually date, and then virtually get married. Both sides will spend all day in the CR so there is no need to ever physically meet each other. Hold on, isn’t that what we do here already? The only thing missing is the actual proposals and weddings. So how about we dedicate this thread to posters proposing to each other. Those who are machmir can wait until Tu B’Av. For now, you can just post who it is that you are dating and the other side has to post back that they agree to the date. I’ll start. I am officially dating a rich, beautiful, intelligent, pleasantly plump, Jewish woman named popa_bar_abba. If she is ok with it, tonight we will virtually have coffee and hamburgers together at the Jaws of Shamu Eco Park Hall.July 12, 2012 2:29 am at 2:29 am #884586choppyParticipant
42: Can I please be mesader kedushin between you and popa?July 12, 2012 2:44 am at 2:44 am #884587popa_bar_abbaParticipant
Yes, let’s have hamburgers in my cast iron pan.July 12, 2012 3:01 am at 3:01 am #884588
Ok pops, but let’s go to carvel first before we get fleishigs.July 12, 2012 3:03 am at 3:03 am #884589
Choppy, we used to have a poster named Rosh Yeshiva, he will be mesader if we get to that. We’re still on the first date and we’re MO so it might take awhile.July 12, 2012 3:32 am at 3:32 am #884591thefinalhorcruxMember
I propose a shidduch booth at the siyum hashas.July 12, 2012 1:35 pm at 1:35 pm #884592ChortkovParticipant
thefinalhorcrux –> How about a shidduch with Luna Lovegood? or maybe with Tonks ???
July 12, 2012 7:29 pm at 7:29 pm #884593charlie brownMember
why carvel and not popa’s favorite joint – Starbucks?
also can’t you eat virtual milchigs even if you already had virtual hamburgers? I’m sure popa can come up with a troll thread permitting it.
