If boys really cared about looks they would go out with every girl instead of judging her by a motionless picture.
The problem is that once a boy sees a picture of an average girl he will most likely say she is not my type and wont give her a chance. Even though everyone can agree that pictures are not very accurate representation of looks. And yes sometimes a picture might even look better than the person looks on daily basis but sometimes worse either way its not a fair way to judge looks.December 15, 2010 9:25 pm at 9:25 pm #718851
cshapiro and popa (if hes single)!!!December 15, 2010 9:28 pm at 9:28 pm #718852Trying my bestMember
“And of course it in not tznius. It is dating, the whole thing is not tznius.”
popa: Are you kidding?? There is no way she can dress “not tznius” on a date.December 15, 2010 9:34 pm at 9:34 pm #718853
Tznius is a standard which changes based on the circumstances.
Of course she should not break halacha, or wear anything she usually would not wear in public.
But she should dress how she would if she were going on a date with her husband, at least.
I think, more like how she would for a friend’s wedding.December 15, 2010 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #718854
wow sac im insulted….that u dont think i could do better….lolDecember 15, 2010 9:55 pm at 9:55 pm #718855whatrutalkingabtMember
“I still disagree. I think she should dress as nicely as she would dress if going out with her husband.”
I agree with that. I meant she maybe should not dress like she would if she was staying inside with her husband…
dont worry- once your married your wife will make you feel plenty attracted…December 15, 2010 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #718856
im gonna get fired because my boss knows there is nothing funny about accounting!!!
There often is something very funny about accounting. And you usually get paid more for it.December 15, 2010 10:10 pm at 10:10 pm #718857

My ignoring these comments is my way of continuing to not give away my marital status or any other personal information.

Girls should always dress nicely.
Boys should always dress nicely.
Both genders should always present themselves in a neat, hygienic, and attractive way. To do otherwise is to say, “Hashem, I do not give two cents for the face or body You gave me. People can take me or leave me.”
There is nothing wrong with wanting to look nice or wanting to be with someone who appeals to you. I would repeat that line, but I am too lazy to type it again.You knwo what – I will, anyway.

as my dear grandmother once wisely said to me, “It is better to be attractive, healthy and rich than ugly, poor and sick.”
Though it is almost 35 years since she told me this, it still rings true today.December 16, 2010 1:15 pm at 1:15 pm #718873

The problem I have with the initial premise is NOT that girls shouldn’t put their best feet forward – I think most if not all women feel good when they maximize their assets – but that girls (and women) are being held to some arbitrary artificial standard of beauty.
There are women who are (some of you may need to sit down for this) ten pounds overweight who are beautiful.
Some women may favor one look over an another.
Some women can’t wear heels. Get over it.
I could keep going.
Last week’s Hamodia magazine had a great story: a young woman goes to the shadchan after having sent her a photo for the file. She was pretty pumped about the photo, having made some effort for it. So she finds the shadchan in tears – tears! – because she didn’t have anyone pretty enough for the best catch (sic) she had. And poor, poor guy. What was the shadchan doing wrong? Did she need to get a better quality meat in her stable? Yes, that was the story (though that last sentence was mine, but it was clearly said in not so many words).
So this is where we’re coming from.
FWIW, I’ve been married for a while. No sour grapes. One case of a child who wasn’t anorexic enough for someone.December 16, 2010 2:35 pm at 2:35 pm #718875
actually pb rich, gorgeous football player….so yes u got it!!!December 16, 2010 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm #718876
popa, you’re single. Don’t kid us, you gave that away long ago. Here are some of the lesser proofs from your threads:
The first thread, I merely complained about girls attitudes. I didn’t tie it to myself. One of my friends was starting law school after 7 years post high school full time learning.
Besides, I may have gotten married in the past 8 months.
The second thread says that I didn’t have kids old enough to run around in shul. I see no reason to bring them at all before they are 8 or 9.December 16, 2010 2:51 pm at 2:51 pm #718877
So who are you gonna date then?December 16, 2010 5:57 pm at 5:57 pm #718878

“and popa….to be quite honest idk if anyones good enuf for him…”
“wow sac im insulted….that u dont think i could do better”
Now, stop beating around the bush… I’ll even pick up the restaurant tab 😉December 16, 2010 9:56 pm at 9:56 pm #718882
I thought popa is a guy….
Ok I got it. Well make a yeshiva world shidduch. Sac will pay for the restaurant bill, just go out with him. If you do, I will go out with Sac.December 16, 2010 10:02 pm at 10:02 pm #718883SJSinNYCMember
Popa, there is nothing wrong with a man wanting an attractive wife. Nor is there something wrong with a woman wanting an attractive husband.
There is something wrong when its the primary importance to the person. I know a man who is now in his 40s. A decent looking guy with a decent job. Interesting, fairly funny…a good catch. BUT. When you asked him what he was looking for, his list was preposterous. He wanted someone tall, thin, but athletic thin but not too muscular, preferably a natural blond woman with light eyes….his list went on and on. He never even got to the part about what she should be like.
That’s wrong.December 16, 2010 11:48 pm at 11:48 pm #718884
Just to warn you…They probably will pick the most expensive place, so you may have to hold off on buying those shoes!December 16, 2010 11:48 pm at 11:48 pm #718885

That guy is a lunatic, and it explains why he is single at 40. Most guys I know are not like that at all.
So, while some guys are a bit loony, the majority I think have a pretty good balance.December 17, 2010 3:21 am at 3:21 am #718888
Darn! You caught on;) But i dont know if Sac is “good enough” for me;)She never said yes….December 17, 2010 3:51 am at 3:51 am #718889
