i know sompone who went out with a girl and was unofficialy engnaged and the girl got cold feet and spoke to a teacher of hers who told her that she should just break off the shidduch. the girls concernn was that she wasnt sure if it felt right. he asked his rebbe who told him that they shouldve continued bec it either gets better or worse and within a few dates they wouldve known which way it was going and that the teacher was 100% wrong with her advice. why are there unqualified ppl out there ruining shidduchim? we should have ppl set up that girls nad boys can go to who can really help them and give proper advice.September 11, 2012 3:37 am at 3:37 am #1188459sheinMember

elmos world, “i know someone …..”
Are you sure you have all the details. Before we start knocking teachers, did you hear this story the person it happened to, otherwise details are sure to be missing or distorted.September 11, 2012 4:52 pm at 4:52 pm #1188463
I wonder what the Rebbe would have said had she spoken to him, and what the teacher would have said, had he spoken to her.September 11, 2012 4:56 pm at 4:56 pm #1188464☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant

The boy.September 11, 2012 4:57 pm at 4:57 pm #1188465☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
I wonder if the girl got cold feet when she realized that the boy couldn’t even spell “and” correctly.September 11, 2012 6:06 pm at 6:06 pm #1188466
She probably got cold feet because the boy still lives in elmos world.September 11, 2012 6:27 pm at 6:27 pm #1188467zen3344Participant

Did he give her a letter that said, “Wud u amry me?” Is that what unofficially engaged means?September 11, 2012 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #1188469MorahRachMember

I think it’s actually a valid spelling, just less commonly used.September 11, 2012 8:51 pm at 8:51 pm #1188471

Maybe the op means unofficially engaged meaning he was engaged to her without breaking a plate.
What makes you think your rebbe gave you correct advice?September 11, 2012 10:00 pm at 10:00 pm #1188474
And if the girls teacher had told her to continue, that would have been the correct advice? All cheshbones are made in shomayim. Maybe the guy just didn’t internally deserve the girl he was engaged to.
Sometimes pple with status are hollow inside… That’s why superficiallity means so much to them.
Noone should discontinue a Shidduch just because it doesn’t feel right, I’m sure there was more to it that was going on upstairs… And that she didnt want to disclose.September 12, 2012 12:01 am at 12:01 am #1188475REALISTMember
RUINT AINT A WOID!!
THOUGH THERE IS AN ENTRY FOR IT IN THE URBAN DICTIONARY.
BUT THAT DOESN’T COUNT. SEE BELOW…
A level of drunkenness only known the morning after a good bender. A cross between the worse hangover ever and still being drunk. The worse headache, gut rot, just about to blow chunks but you can’t be cause you lost your cookies the night before and there is no givener left but you still so drunk and you don’t feel a thing
EG. After i finished that case of beer and bottle of something someone handed me I passed out and when I woke up I was ruinTSeptember 12, 2012 1:08 am at 1:08 am #1188476
I know someone that did not desserve the great girl he was engaged to. She broke it off after realizing what he was really like… Now the guy is having a hard time with the idea that he would never be set up with someone as great as she…
Lesson to be learned from this: parents stop over estimating your kids. And stop being superficial. Be real/ you will only be fooling yourselves in the long run.September 12, 2012 1:57 am at 1:57 am #1188477rebdonielMember
Mods: The same thing that happened to elmos world’s friend happened to me. Please forward me his information. I would like to be in touch and provide chizuk.
The girl I was also unofficially engaged to broke it off after 6 months. She claimed it didn’t feel right, either, which is a completely subjective answer. There were no objective answers provided (i.e./ not in a career yet, different religious levels, family, etc.)
And her answer came less than an hour after she met with a high school teacher of hers (whom is incidentally a JOFA board member). There are just so many similarities here.
My advice would be to do what I am doing. In the face of this heartbreaking experience, I am using it as an opportunity to make concrete achievements in my life- get settled into a career that pays well (CPA), learn for a year, at least, and make connections with rabbonim, community leaders, etc., while engaging in chesed opportunities, in addition to losing weight. The idea is to make myself as marketable as possible to a girl who identifies as Modern Orthodox and is preferably either a bt or giyoret.September 12, 2012 2:11 am at 2:11 am #1188478ready nowParticipant

Just making sure nobody misses this 4 year old gem!
There was a girl on the CR flying to Los Vegas.
Unfortunately, looks like the Mods sent her away. She is gone.
Pity. Could’ve found a perfect match right here on this thread.
