    My 27 year old daughter just came back from a date tonight with a very top bochur. I was told by the rosh yeshiva that he was by far the biggest masmid. Which explains my shock when after the fifth date he felt comfortable to show up the way he did. I feel bad that I had to, but I sent him home. He walked in wearing very nice clothes, but that I could handle, his mother probably bought it for him, it’s not his fault. I can excuse the fancy cashmere scarf and wool coat for the same reason. But not the laces. No one who calls himself a masmid and pretends to be in front of his rebbe should be walking around in tie shoes! The bitul torah that it takes every time You put them on is inexcusable! Even if it was his mother, I don’t care! Walk barefoot! But don’t you dare come to my house on a date in laces. And worst of all, now my daughter thinks that I ruined her life when I was doing it for her good. She was ready to get married to this guy. Shame on him!

    Does this mean the story never happened? Is the daughter 27 and looking for a shidduch or not?

    It probably means that PurimMashgiach was the bochur.

    THIS WAS A PURIM SHPIEL, folks. Even I could see that. But the not so funny joke, is that there was a letter to a shadchan about a very nice boy who walked in wearing (GASP!) colorful socks, and the mother nixed the shidduch (if memory serves). When such external NAARISHKEIT (YES, I SAID NAARISHKEIT!) determines a person’s worthiness as a shidduch, or without even knowing him defines that person’s character, I say the boy dodged the shivigger bullet. And I feel sorry for the daughter. Hope she is not still sitting home, waiting for the perfect shidduch for her mother.

    There are a couple billion people in the world. Even if this guy is fake it probably happened.

    Its like the yaateds shidduch forum and chinuch roundtable, none of those questions are “real”, but they all probably happened

    Any time I hear of a mother of a 27 year old boy turning down a shidduch, what comes to mind is what a lucky girl! Any 27 year old that allows his mommy to run his life truly is a boy and the mother would be a source of aggravation for any future wife

    It’s spelled qtwnalkidersfsfjsaoifjnfsdfsalas, but nobody knows how to spell it so everyone spells it incorrectly.

    Oomis: I remember this one here (I may recall you commented the same). But let us suppose the girl showed up with a ring in her nose. Just pull it off??? Such a minor thing???

    If someone dresses like an oddball, outcast, out of the norm, there’s a pretty good reason for it. And ever watchful, protective mother was doing her natural instinct.

    Q:

    Obviously, the rule is that what would normally be considered trolling is allowed on Purim as well as Adar – but is it mutar even from Tu B’Shevat? Or does it still have the din trolling.

    It is 30 days before Purim, so perhaps it is within the parameters of Purim. What time was the original post – did Purim mashgiach wait until shkiyah or tzeis? What time zone?

    I also want to know what’s the end time? Can we allow it into Nissan? M’stama during sefira one can’t troll.

    It is different for a person whose name is Purim.

    And her RESPONSIBILITY.
