For those who go 2 the Brklyn Marriot:
I went pass the building in the main lane (not service lane) to look for parking. little did i know the next available was the bridge so I had to turn illegally when there was a cop looking 2!
i said phew & my date laughed but little embarrassing. i couldn’t afford 20 min back & forth on the bridge (yea like that will work 4 cops..) lolOctober 27, 2011 3:37 pm at 3:37 pm #1227529yungerman1Participant
Dr. Pepper- Do you only post on this thread??October 27, 2011 4:15 pm at 4:15 pm #1227530
I have ventured into other threads with horrible consequences. When I wished SJSinNYC a mazel tov on the birth of her daughter I must have said something that offended her since she hasn’t been seen since. (At least not on YWN.)
More recently whenever I comment on a thread about Joseph the thread is either deleted or locked. I did comment on on the 4096th General Shmooze though.October 27, 2011 4:19 pm at 4:19 pm #1227531miritchkaMember
Well Dr. Pepper, many of us love to hear from you! please comment more often!October 27, 2011 4:26 pm at 4:26 pm #1227532
’twasn’t the 4096th GS. It was the 6th attempt at a 4th GS, hence 4 to the 6th power which is 4096. Its all there b’feirush in the thread.
but good to have you back anyway, Dr. Pepper. Please tell me you have more funny shidduch stories to share! You either had the wildest things happen to you on dates or you have an amazing imagination – either way, your stories are awesome and very much missed!October 28, 2011 4:06 am at 4:06 am #1227533golden momMember

Someone I know went out on her first date about 15 years ago— they went to the Twin Towers to the observation deck. This guy takes her up, and is evidently enjoying himself enough that when she complains that she has a fear of heights, he REFUSES TO GO DOWN!!! She was wearing a flare skirt which was poofing in the wind and apparently keeping the skirt down luckily occupied enough of her energy that she was distracted at least a little from her phobia. They then went inside and got sodas, and when they finished them the guy ASKED IF THEY COULD GO BACK ON THE DECK. She refused.
They did NOT get married, obviously. That was the first and last date.
She went on another date— they went to the Empire State building observation deck, she told him about the phobia, and he promptly took her back down and they went to Central Park instead.
They did end up getting married.January 19, 2012 4:03 am at 4:03 am #1227545squeakParticipant
That proves something important. Guys who are pushovers will end up with the damaged phobic girls. The guys who are leaders pick from better crop.February 18, 2012 10:50 pm at 10:50 pm #1227546
I was on a date and we were eating out. When the dessert menu came out my date looked at it intensly debating what to order. When the waiter came to take the order the guy motioned to ask me first. I ordered and the waiter asked what he wanted so he said no thanx. He sat there watching me eat the ice cream sundea. It was really uncomfortable.
To pay him back I made him come to that same resterant for our anniversary so that I can eat the dessert comfortably that time.February 19, 2012 2:40 am at 2:40 am #1227547☕️coffee addictParticipant

The reason you went out again was because you were hoping to go to another good restaurant??February 19, 2012 6:09 pm at 6:09 pm #1227551
of course not. Just that he was a guy that didnt realize that women dont like to eat by themselves…. but now he knows betterFebruary 19, 2012 8:01 pm at 8:01 pm #1227552☕️coffee addictParticipant
so your husband made an account for himself, and he’s a “student” (i.e. not in kollel) and now he gave the account to you and you have an “office job” (i.e. not a secretary) in jerusalem

POSTED 52 MINUTES AGO #
What if the girl or guy is ten years older, or he spills tomato sauce on you during the date…. And the shadchan tells you, maybe he was nervous, give it another try…. Who has the dumbest reason here… The dater or the shadchan…. Lol. I dated many years ago.., however some of the issues today still are occuring along with more larger sophisticated ones…. The question is, is the shidduch crisis due to pple rejecting based on age differentiation… What is the problem with having large gaps in marriage?? B”h my husband and I are close in age…. But is it that terrible if the girl is say 25 and the boy is 22 or if the guy is a hefty amount of years older what could be the ramifications that a couple could potentially come to based on these types of factors???February 19, 2012 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #1227555OneOfManyParticipant

yes being in kollel would be considered being a student and there are other office jobs besides secretaries.

Wow – I know a lot of stories that would fit right into this thread. Here’s one now. A friend of mine’s car broke down in the middle of a date. A date that had not gone well; they both knew that it was over. He called AAA, and they sent a tow truck. The driver was a VERY large – as in well over 300 pounds large – and jolly man. Well, he chuckled, there was nothing that he could do for the car. As it was at night, and in a pretty bad area, he did offer them a ride back. Feeling that they had no choice, they accepted. The tow truck had three seats – all in the cab. The driver took up most of them. And so they squeezed in, while maintaining distance as much as they could. The driver was a in grand mood. “So, you Jewish?” My friend grimly and monosyllabicly answered, “Yes”. “Well, I’m not Jewish. But I am circumcised!” The driver then went on to tell the hilariously funny story of just how and with what his father had threatened the surgeon if the circumcision would go badly. By the time they pulled up in front of her house, it was very late (this was before cell phones), and her entire family was worriedly outside waiting for them. They were therefore on hand to witness them spill out of the cab like so many circus clowns.February 26, 2012 6:28 am at 6:28 am #1227564bortezomibParticipant
first off- this thread ROCKS.
I’d love to contribute- just from the other side- aka things that have come out of my mouth on dates that should not have.
I was on a date with a verrry aidel and sweet boy. We had zero to say to each other, but we tried to maintain conversation valiantly, I assure you. In a feeble attempt to revive conversation, the boy said to me “Oh, so you’re taking chemistry, how is lab, do you do any cool experiments?”
Of course I answered that we did, and what made it even cooler was the fact that often, we’d be working with toxic chemicals.
“Yah,” I continued, “One time, a boy in my class spilled sulfuric acid on himself, and since it’s corrosive, my professor made him take off his pants!”
<me mentally hitting myself>
And then he says, “Ohh…uhh.. they don’t have a spare set of clothing for these people?”February 27, 2012 2:06 am at 2:06 am #1227565
What about the guy who took a girl out to walk down the Riverside Drive path for two hours, subsequently spent another hour trying to find the car, and then got himself a drink and NOT the girl?
Or the girl who brought her mother with her on a date? (She was locked out of her hotel room and had nowhere else to go. She made the boy take her shoe shopping.)February 28, 2012 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #1227566
A friend of mine recently went out on a date, where the guy was emotionally unstable. He went from one second talking about how much he loves learning to telling her that when he was in yeshiva he was so depressed he couldn’t get out of bed in the morning with the knowledge that he had to learn the majority of the day. Then he proceeded to tell her how much he loves his mother more than anything in the world. Hello?
He talked about his mother for half an hour my friend felt like she was going to pass out! Luckily he ordered drinks, but when they started drinking the guy started slurping repulsively to the extent that she was repulsed to finish her drink that the guy payed 7$ for, she felt bad but what could she do, she couldnt bring herself to drink since she was so repulsed the poor thing. Somehow The guy got the hint that she wasn’t going to finish her drink, he got up to daven mincha, when he reached for his iPhone to check mizrach, she could see the guy was shaking, she still not sure why he was, but anyhow as he was shaking his iPhone fell to the floor and cracked, poor guy! He was not only mortified, he was beyond anything you could describe!!! My friend being the lady that she is offered him her phone which he readily agreed! They ended the date by the guy saying to her that was real aussum! See you next time, he cheerfully calls out. No there was definitely no next time and
No they did not go out again after that one!February 28, 2012 10:43 pm at 10:43 pm #1227567popa_bar_abbaParticipant

Laughing and having fun is what the first few dates should be. Though it shouldn’t be done with another couple, that’s a lack of tznius. I think that’s called a double date.May 6, 2012 10:02 pm at 10:02 pm #1227571ChortkovParticipant
not so funny – my uncle was mugged outside a fancy hotel by Heathrow on his date, were a group of arabs took his wallet, watch and phone. Not such an awe-inspiring moment! He married her, lolMay 6, 2012 11:34 pm at 11:34 pm #1227572
When my mom and dad were dating, my mom wasn’t living at home (she was already in her late twenties) and she had the shadchan calling her most of the time instead of her mom. So one neighborhood lady didn’t know that, so she called my grandmother to set my dad up with my mom. However, at the same time, my mom had agreed to go out with someone else ON THE SAME NIGHT! My mom and grandmother each only knew about one (my grandmother was going to tell my mom the day before, like they usually did, and my mom was going to tell my grandmother afterward).
Then the other guy, the one my mom agreed to go out with, had someone bump into his car in Brooklyn or someplace, and by the time he got a chance to call my mom to apologize for missing the date, she had already gone out with my dad (after a bit of confusion and a looong explanation from my grandmother) and had agreed to go out again. Sooooo… as they say, it was bashert!
Speaking of which, my dad got redt to my mom in the first place after my aunt (who had just moved to the area where my mom lived) was at a kiddush and was chatting with some neighbor. The neighbor mentioned “Do you know of anyone for my friend’s daughter, blah blah blah…” and my aunt mentioned “Oh, I have a single brother, blah blah blah….” and the rest, as they say, was history.
Never underestimate the power of shidduch networking!May 7, 2012 1:58 am at 1:58 am #1227573dunnoMember
My friend went out with a guy who tried to convince her throughout the date that his grandfather’s stories from the Holocaust were better then her grandfather’s.
Same guy said he’ll eventually go work but until then he’d like to be supported – he also added that he’s used to a very comfortable lifestyle now and doesn’t want to give that up.
Both first and last dates…May 7, 2012 2:04 am at 2:04 am #1227574dunnoMember
Another friend of mine had a guy tell her he reads books on Christianity because he sees how many of their teachings apply to Judaism. She was thinking uhhhhh. And before anyone asks, he went to regular, run of the mill yeshivos.October 24, 2012 6:37 pm at 6:37 pm #1227575popa_bar_abbaParticipant
So I called Dor Yeshorim to give in the numbers for my daughter. And the way it works is, that you input all the numbers into the automated telephone system, and then, they call you back some time later and you have to read off numbers again and they tell you the results.
So I call, and give machine the numbers.
They call back, and I miss call, because I’m busy or something.
So I call back, but it just sends you straight to that automated system to reinput the numbers. So I hang up.
The next day, they call me and say: you didn’t get the results, do you have the numbers now? But I was driving, so I don’t.
DY Lady: Ok, so call us back when you have the numbers.
Popa: But then it will just send me to the automated machine.
DY Lady: And then we’ll call you back.
Popa: …so just call me back…October 24, 2012 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #1227576

Just to start off, I read this entire thread from start to finish (very entertaining during class) and I think this is the greatest thread ever. Dr. Pepper has made many a boring class seem not so bad.
Anyways, a story my friend told me: After much research and pushing by the shadchan he decided to go out with a certain girl. When he pulled up by the girls house there were 2 girls outside waiting for him. When they noticed the confused look on his face they said in unison “now you have to choose one of us and whichever one you choose that’s the one you have to go out with”. Not sure how long they were rehearsing this but he didn’t think it was very funny, but being the good sport he is he decided to play along. I guess he managed to somehow convey his lack of amusement at the situation and the girl he was supposed to go out with spoke up and they went out. Didn’t work out though.
Idk, I think that’s pretty funny but he sure didn’t.
