Hi Jax 🙂
Perhaps we should compile a listing of the various hair colours, along with a statistical analysis of the chances 😉 (could lead to some very interesting ‘new trends’)May 21, 2009 6:47 am at 6:47 am #1226891

This is getting boring- any new stories…?
In reference to the guy with the learners permit..
I once went out with a guy, and the shadchan told me,
He doesn’t have a license but hes a very good driver (he had been in eretz yisroel since before he could get a license) So she hasked me if i minded if he drove… (MY CAR)
Since I am over 18 and had my license for over 5 years, in my state it is legal for someone without a license to drive with someone who has their license (With those conditions met)…
He was a half decent driver,
but the whole time my was hand was grabbing the arm rest by the window for dear life! And I was gasping every time he stopped short…May 22, 2009 5:10 am at 5:10 am #1226902
anonymisss is here;P
~a~May 22, 2009 5:48 am at 5:48 am #1226903
anonymisss: welcome back! you survived! head to General Shmooze! 🙂May 22, 2009 9:28 am at 9:28 am #1226904jewishfeminist02Member
outoftowner, why didn’t you drive instead?May 22, 2009 1:43 pm at 1:43 pm #1226905
Because I am not a feminist, and I personally would rather feeling like the girl on a date and have a guy take me out… I have driven my car on the first date when I had to, I like to drive, and I have also driven on dates later on.. I have no problem with it, I just prefer that the guy drive.. They seem better at talking and driving then I do 🙂May 26, 2009 7:00 pm at 7:00 pm #1226907mistertoadMember
Heard this from the poor guy who it happened to in BMG.
So , he took out this girl to Manhattan – a day date – , went here and there and they had a great time. I think it was their second date. Anyway – at the last minute when he’s about to end the date – she asked if she could see ground zero. She was an out-of-towner.
So he tried to hail a cab but it was rush hour – half hour later he realizes that he’s getting close to skiah. What to do? So he tells her – no more ground zero , gotta pray. But where? Starbucks? He calls his Uncle who’s a Sr. Partner at some high powered firm and asks him. He says, you’re two blocks away from my firm – on times square! – and we’re davening Mincha soon. Call along, I’ll tell security to let you in.
They walk two blocks and there is the fifty story building. Security asks for ID. Yes, they have clearance to come in. But they must be photographed first! Um…nu, she’s a good bais Yakov maidel – she tells him to get photographed first, and run to mincha. They photograph him – but here’s the punchline. You get a barcoded id pin that you have to wear and the elevator has no buttons – you insert your barcode and it brings to were you have authorization to go. He gets his pass – it says he has a meeting w/his uncle on floor 9. Gevaltdik. Must be mincha. He slips it into the elevator. After a minute, a frum looking guy walks in, and sees the yeshiva guy dressed in a suit with a hat. He tells him he’s going to mincha. “No! Everyday we have it in a different conference room. Today – it’s in floor 10. Don’t worry though. Now you’re my client. Come on – Skiah!” SO he runs with this lawyer to floor 10, finds a minyan of lawyers, and happily davens mincha. He notices his uncle is not there yet….
Meanwhile , downstairs, the poor maidel got photographed and issued a pass. To floor 9 with her dates uncle. No, she says, she rather wait down here. Security says no way. Either to your meeting , or get lost. She’s not sure what to do, when the phone. It’s the uncle. “Did you send up my nephew” “yes sir, to floor 9” “YOU IDIOT! FLOOR 10!” Security had messed up. “We’ve got to find him!” they say. “Here – you know what he looks like – come with us” Two huge security guards escorted this poor to floor 9, where they did a cubicle by cubicle search for her poor date. After ten minutes, one them wonders if he made it to floor ten. Maybe he met another person going to afternoon services? They go floor ten, just as the guy is running out of mincha, not waiting for chazaras hashatz, the security guard grabs the girl by the arm and says “Honey! It’s your boyfriend!”…
They did not get married.
The security guard was fired.May 26, 2009 7:11 pm at 7:11 pm #1226908chaverimMember

Not really a shidduch story like the rest – but did anyone else know that the Ku Klutz Karta’s first trip to Iran was the result of the work of a deaf, aging shadchan?
You see, Ahmadinejad wanted to marry a Jewish girl from a good wannabe kanoi family, so he called a shadchan in NK Monsey and asked him to send over a few of his best prospects.
The shadchan (some say it was Moishe Ber Beck himself) misunderstood and thought Mad Mahmoud wanted to marry off his daughter.
So, he sent over six of the least appealing bochurim on his list, and the rest was history. M.A.F. was Mad Mahmoud’s first choice and they were together for a while but M.A.F. did tshive and no longer goes to Iran. Now Mad Mahmoud is in a relationship with Aharon Cohen who is presently over there where he belongs.
A chuppa is planned but it has to be constructed 50 amois high….June 5, 2009 3:45 am at 3:45 am #1226912
Any more? C’mon, I have a hard time believing that noone has had a funny dating experience this week. Besides, I could use a good laugh.June 5, 2009 5:26 am at 5:26 am #1226913Belev EchadParticipant
my friend just told me a small horror.
so basicaly they were taking a lovely stroll in a nice park, second date, and there are some young kids playing around…with water guns…not just any water guns…super soakers.
and as they made their third round around the park…she accidentaly walked in direct line of fire, and got her head splashed with a force of water. her beautifuly blown hair became drenched, and reverted back to the terrifying frizzy curls it normaly is.
she told him she probably looked like a wet poodle.
he didn’t know what a poodle looked like, so she had to explain it to him.June 5, 2009 4:37 pm at 4:37 pm #1226914
