I am a girl in my late 20s living in Israel and I’m really trying to get married. I grew up frum, but I feel I click with ba’alei teshuva and gerim. This could work to my advantage since they tend to be more open to dating older girls. Anyways, I am kind of at a loss as to how to go about finding these boys. Does anybody have any ideas or know who I can contact to get set up with them? I’m open to FFB too but I know not everyone is willing to date ba’alei teshuvas and gerim, and they are my preference so I thought I would give them a special mention.
I know a single girl in her late 20s is a dime a dozen at this point, but true to the name of this post, I am trying to do my hishtadlut so if anyone has any ideas or advice, I’d really appreciate it.

Don’t consider yourself “a dime a dozen”. Women are not interchangeable.October 4, 2018 4:36 pm at 4:36 pm #1599259

Right and anyways the Gemara in kiddushin says women won’t get married with less than a prutah (25 cents) so it would be 3 dollars a dozenOctober 4, 2018 11:36 pm at 11:36 pm #1599387
Do you have any contacts- Rabbanim or their wives – in BT yeshivas, or those yeshivas that BTs tend to continue in after their first stop Yeshivas? Like Aish, Ohr Sameach, Schepel’s, Machon Shlomo. It’s been a long time, but in my day I knew some Rabbanim in some of these places who I would call for information about perspective shidduchim.
