I was in a store last night getting cholent and the guy in front of me was on his phone and I saw him log on to Yeshiva world, and then on to the CR, and then he put his username in and I was so shocked!! I totally did not expect him to be like that!January 8, 2016 4:23 pm at 4:23 pm #1134877

Hashemisreading- I have my ways 😉 Actually a poster emailed me last week since she saw an article I wrote in a magazine and emailed me that I remind her of a poster in the CR. Guess I have the same writing style everywhere I write! lolJanuary 24, 2016 2:31 pm at 2:31 pm #1134891
So you don’t know if your emailpal is merely a reader-only or a participant here.January 24, 2016 4:00 pm at 4:00 pm #1134892flatbusherParticipant
YW makes it impossible to know the identity of anyone here, unless somehow people have found a way short of of clearly identifying themselves
I will occasionally email various posters identities to each other in the hopes of resolving the shidduch crisisJanuary 24, 2016 4:45 pm at 4:45 pm #1134893writersoulParticipant
Lol! My friend just emailed me about something I wrote in the CR… though she’s known my screenname for a good four years or so so it wasn’t a tremendous shock to either of us…
I know the identities of two or three other posters as well, with the unfortunate tradeoff being that they know who I am also 🙂
(Just saying- I make it very easy for people with the right context to know who I am- just pretend you don’t notice, awright? Makes lives so much simpler 🙂 )January 24, 2016 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #1134894
writersoul, I’m bringing over some cookies we baked.January 24, 2016 5:06 pm at 5:06 pm #1134895
No I see that she says she posts something or will email me something here and usually does.January 24, 2016 5:07 pm at 5:07 pm #1134896

Please check your email
just kiddingJanuary 25, 2016 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #1134899
Mods I actually think ther emust be so many shidduchim right here in our cozy little coffee room. There are so many of us who share the same views on life.
We do not know who is male and who is female.January 25, 2016 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #1134900
Posters here have suggested shidduchim saying that if these two posters are single and of opposite genders, then they are suggesting the shidduch.January 26, 2016 4:42 pm at 4:42 pm #1134901
But there has yet to be a CR wedding. If it did happen, would we all be invited?January 26, 2016 6:33 pm at 6:33 pm #1134902
We do not know who is male and who is female.
Come on, cant we usually figure it out?January 26, 2016 10:47 pm at 10:47 pm #1134903
Not all the time. It’s online, anyone can pretend to be another gender.January 27, 2016 3:00 pm at 3:00 pm #1134904
I know but their way of talking can usually give it away.January 27, 2016 5:33 pm at 5:33 pm #1134905
You can easily pretend. Someone who is trying really hard and is knows of everything they write..January 27, 2016 7:43 pm at 7:43 pm #1134906

Resolving the shiduch crisis doesn’t necessarily mean people will get married. It just means more people will go out with each other.January 27, 2016 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm #1134907
Shopping, trust me, no one thinks your a guy.January 27, 2016 7:45 pm at 7:45 pm #1134908
But there has yet to be a CR wedding. chaplainzvi and gefen got married via the CR.January 27, 2016 7:54 pm at 7:54 pm #1134909
Resolving the shiduch crisis doesn’t necessarily mean people will get married. It just means more people will go out with each other.
Sure, if you define “the shidduch crisis” as not having many dates. According to that definition, chassidim have the worst shidduch crisis, since they have beshows.January 27, 2016 8:00 pm at 8:00 pm #1134910
chaplainzvi and gefen got married via the CR.
That was a remarriage/confirmation ceremony.
But what about yummycupcake?January 27, 2016 8:02 pm at 8:02 pm #1134911
yummycupcake didn’t get married to another poster (or did she?)January 27, 2016 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm #1134912

How you define the shiduch crisis doesn’t effect how it’s resolved.January 27, 2016 8:24 pm at 8:24 pm #1134913
SDD:How you define the shiduch crisis doesn’t effect how it’s resolved.
yes it does, because the next step after defining the shidduch crisis is resolving the shidduch crisis.
We wouldn’t be able to resolve it before we define it!January 28, 2016 2:59 pm at 2:59 pm #1134914
I think they were married BEFORE the crJanuary 28, 2016 7:53 pm at 7:53 pm #1134915
You can define it as something that’s already been resolved.January 28, 2016 8:00 pm at 8:00 pm #1134916
Rebyidd: You can define it as something that’s already been resolved.
Huh? I don’t see how that’s a definition.January 28, 2016 8:03 pm at 8:03 pm #1134917
Say, for example, we defined the shidduch crisis as the inability to discuss shidduchim in a public forum. With the CR, that’s been resolved.January 28, 2016 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #1134918
Daasyochid: But that’s the wrong definition!
Among the possible definitions of the shidduch crisis are the following:
a) The age gap
b) the freezer
c) the boys mother
d) the girls are picky
e) the boys are shallow
f) the girls are too deep for the shallow boys
g) there are more girls than boys
And unfortunately many more. That’s what I call a definition, or an explanation of the shidduch crisis. Not cryptic wording that Rebyidd makes up to make himself sound smart.
Feel free to add on plausible definitions, going all the way to Z and then aa, bb and so on.January 28, 2016 8:11 pm at 8:11 pm #1134919
I’d rather define it as the inability to discuss anything other than shiduchim in a public forum. With the CR, we see it firsthand.January 28, 2016 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm #1134920
There is no wrong definition of the shidduch crisis. If there were, your list would be (almost?) all wrong.January 28, 2016 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm #1134921
SDD, so if we shut down all public forums, we’d solve it.January 28, 2016 8:16 pm at 8:16 pm #1134922
But the point really is, how many posters do you know in real life?January 28, 2016 8:16 pm at 8:16 pm #1134923
HIR (to save DY the task):
h) the inability to discuss shidduchim in a public forum
Presto!January 28, 2016 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm #1134924
DY, That’s one way of solving it. Or you can get more people to go out with each other.
