Jax, make sure I dont walk anywhere near your house in the next few weeks. Or at least remind me to bring along a towel. 😉June 8, 2009 5:50 pm at 5:50 pm #1226921
Jax, you’re so nasty! It’s not funny AT ALL!June 8, 2009 6:08 pm at 6:08 pm #1226922
Mepal I agree that it’s NOT funny at all. My friend once told me that she was on a date in a park and it was a really nice day, but then dark gray clouds came out and BOOM it started pouring. Luckily, they were able to run under an awning at the entrance of the park but my friend and her date still got wet. He then told her to wait, while he brings the car closer. So he brings the car closer, and then starts looking in the car for an umbrella, but he couldn’t find one. So my friend decides to RUN to the car. Of course her hair gets all wet and all the hard work before the date of blowing and ironing her hair went down the drain!! (fyi, she was meeting his mother later on…with frizz and all!) For all those curious, no they did not get married.June 8, 2009 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #1226923
Oh man alive! That is SO upsetting! Anyone got any good tips on what to do if heaven forbid you find yourself in a similiar situation? Always better to be forearmed….June 8, 2009 6:37 pm at 6:37 pm #1226924
Mepal, advice: Just grin and bear it, keep calm cool and collected! It’s not really the end of the world. Your Bashert will like you no matter if your hair is frizzy and wet!June 8, 2009 6:42 pm at 6:42 pm #1226925
Mepal, I think you meant to write “Always better to be foreWARNED….” Instead of “Always better to be foreARMED….”June 8, 2009 7:03 pm at 7:03 pm #1226926
Chatty, I AM forewarned! now I gotta be forearmed! And btw, it would be quite hard to just grin and bear it if you’re stuck in such a situation. I’d be mortified. I just read a horror dating story of a guy that took the girl boating. When it was time to bring the boat back to the doc, they had to row against the current since the wind was blowing in the opposite direction. The boy decides to just doc on the side of the lake and let the company deal with the missing boat. He docs, tells the girl to go out and she steps straight into knee deep mud. Long story how they got OUT of their predicament, but it was pretty pathetic!June 8, 2009 7:12 pm at 7:12 pm #1226927
Mepal, actually now that I’m thinking about it foreARMED makes sense – to always make sure to have in your ARMS an Umbrella…JUST IN CASE! 🙂June 8, 2009 8:33 pm at 8:33 pm #1226928
Mepal, mchemtob said that story about the lake way back so we read what happens at the endJune 8, 2009 8:46 pm at 8:46 pm #1226929
chatty, right. Take along an umbrella on every date. At least you’ll have what to talk about!
shaatra, thanks for pointing that out. I had no time to finish up the story so whoever doesnt know the end could go back and check.June 8, 2009 8:56 pm at 8:56 pm #1226930
LOL! Mepal, you made me crack up! Well they always say, that if you have nothing to talk about, you can always talk about the weather! 😉June 8, 2009 9:52 pm at 9:52 pm #1226931
…or that umbrella you’re holding on the sunniest day of the year for that matter!June 9, 2009 2:13 am at 2:13 am #1226932
kapusta: i think i still have that cool water gun in my basement! it only comes out on the 9days though! so your in the clear for some time still! 😉

Disclaimer – I found this on a blog, and wanted to share it 😉
His reaction finally caught up with hers, and instead of ringing the bell or camping on her doorstep, he went home, tracked her down, and got himself redt to her.
Utterly embarrassed, the Girl fled the scene.
Then there were the unfortunate yeshiva Guy and seminary Girl stuck next to each other on a flight from Israel. They sat carefully gazing forward the entire flight, never making eye contact, and always behaving in the most decorous of manners. Both were no doubt relieved when the flight ended and their row dispersed to the luggage pickup, never to see each other again.
Goes to show you – when it’s meant to happen, it happens!June 9, 2009 8:16 pm at 8:16 pm #1226934areivimzehlazehParticipant

on her first date the girl being very nervous forgets the name of her shiduch. while they chatting and things have calmed down she decides she need to find out his name but it would look rude if she asked his name directly.So she asks him “so just tell me again how do you spell your name?'”. She was so embarrased when he spelt out very slowly Y O N I.

Dr. Pepper here filling in for my husband, Dr. Pepper.
This happened to my friend many years ago.
Her date took her for a long walk on a hot day. He told her that when they reach the end of the trail he’s going to buy her an ice cream. When they reached a street vendor and he asked for two ice creams he realized that it would be cheaper to walk to the super market and buy a box of 6. So they went to the supermarket and bought a box instead.
After they each ate one he didn’t know what to do with the other 4, so on the hike back he asked her to hold the box while he ate the remainders.
They did not get married (she’s a nutritionist).June 10, 2009 9:43 pm at 9:43 pm #1226943squeakParticipant

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome.
A friend and I had the wedding of another friend one night and I had wanted to get a ride there with her. I like totally forgot that she was on a date and was going to have her date drop her off there after the date. I kept on calling her cell phone over and over again because she wouldn’t answer. I finally realized and was like OMG why didn’t she turn it off before hand?
She didn’t marry the guy, but I did!
(It’s a funny story how we figured it out 🙂 I’ll try to post it sometime.)June 11, 2009 2:28 pm at 2:28 pm #1226951June 11, 2009 4:29 pm at 4:29 pm #1226952

Over the phone we made up to go out the next Sunday also at 3:30, but this time it would be different since my whole family was going to be home. 10 minutes before the date I shooed all my younger siblings down to the basement and warned them about coming out before one of my parents gave the all clear signal. I also promised them the cake which was set up on the table but no guy ever touches. My parents planned to escort the two of us out the door as soon as possible since one of the bathrooms was clogged and they were expecting the plumber.
Soon my battery started to die (and I left my Black and Decker car starter at home LOL) so I asked him if he wants to call back on my friends private line and I asked my friend if I can talk in her room privately. I told him to call me at 555-1234.
I was really looking forward to the next date now that I thought I knew him better. Over dinner he tells me that he wants to show me something as he put his hand in his jacket pocket. I was secretly hoping it would be something innocent like a family picture as opposed to his favorite graphing calculator, but it was neither.
When the waiter came with the bill he took it this time but he had a perplexed look on his face. The receipt said not to include the tip on the credit card.
So he left it under one of the plates and went to thank the waiter for the wonderful service. After we left he had this horrible thought that someone might have seen him hide the tip under a plate and will snatch it before the waiter gets it, so we stood by the window watching until the waiter took it. (Sometimes I just wonder?)
To spare everyone from the rest of the details- we eventually got engaged.June 12, 2009 9:40 pm at 9:40 pm #1226957
I typed up a whole long post but t got lost somewhere. Could it have been too long?
Well anyway, hee’s the par referring to that story:

Thanks Mr. Mod for the trouble you went through to edit the post. I apologize if some of the language was below par (maybe my clients/ patients are getting to me?).
For those who didn’t see it the long post is the second to last one on the previous page, right before the short one.
I just have some questions for you Mr. Mod;
1. Can you put the changes in bold so other readers can know where to use their imagination?
2. Did you find those edited parts funny?
3. Can the Mod Board use the original version when choosing the Post Of The Year?
Thanks againJune 15, 2009 2:40 pm at 2:40 pm #1226965onlysimchosMember
the story about bro suggested for sister is true it is my sis-in-law bro and sis, but she didnt marry someone with same name, that is her sister who married my brotherJune 18, 2009 7:57 pm at 7:57 pm #1226967
I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU!
What did you write about me?
“Chewing his cud”?
I thought we had a truce about the plunger story. That story at the end about Dovid- at least you ended it at “and let’s leave it at”.
I’ll still open the car door for you but you just lost window privileges.
J/K- Can’t wait to see you.June 18, 2009 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #1226968yossi z.Member

A little background to the story first.
I’m driving with my mother in an old jalopy when the radiator starts leaking. Mom is all nervous that we’re going to get a ticket for illegal disposal of a toxic chemical (the anti freeze), so I pulled into a parking lot and parked in a spot where the front of the car was over the grassy part of a cement island.
I repeated the story on a date and the girl asked “but didn’t it ruin the grass?”
“Actually not”, I responded sarcastically, “it made the grass even greener than it was before!”.
“Oh, that’s very interesting, I would have thought that the chemicals would kill the grass.”
We ended up getting married but only after I told her I was going to take care of the yard (and oil changes).
