The CR is so serious lately!
With threads like:
Engaged on 3rd date
Changing a rabbi through a text on the third date
school yard bullying
The World To Come and Gilgulim
Separate seating at Weddings
Girl I want to get engaged to wants me to change my Rabbi
Yavam inheriting father who was a ger
Ending it after 10 dates over text
it’s just so boring around here.
At first I thought it was the three weeks, so I understood. But now it’s already Tu B’Av and there are a maximum of 3 funny threads on the main page, and they are not even “hot”!
Soon it’s gonna be Elul and any funny threads will be held at, so we got to do it now!
I miss ZeesKite! 🙁

I’ll get right to work, SiDi. Thank you for alerting me to this dilemma.August 12, 2014 2:09 am at 2:09 am #1051050Bookworm120Participant
@SIDI – I’ll probably have to temporarily disappear or hope the Mods will have mercy on me during the month of Elul if that’s the case.
I’ll cover for ya – 29August 12, 2014 2:45 am at 2:45 am #1051051
Bookworm, if I remember correctly, there were some members who disliked the funny threads during Elul but those who were into didn’t pay much attention.
Yes, there are times to be serious but that doesn’t mean talking Shidduchim 24/7! And we are allowed a laugh one in a while!

Thank you, 29!August 12, 2014 4:14 am at 4:14 am #1051053Little FroggieMember
This is so funny… Just today I was thinking of the need to make one (last, oh really) bash party here. SiDi – you beat me (ouch).August 12, 2014 4:35 am at 4:35 am #1051055golferParticipant
What happened to the funny side?
The CR has been invaded by very very serious creatures.
You would not believe how seriously & literally other posters take my comments.
I guess I shouldn’t complain.
Nice to know a comment is actually read by someone other than a mod from time to time.
But some of the responses I see to my posts and others leave me wondering if maybe a serious epidemic of humor impairment might be the real cause of the shidduch crisis and global warming.August 12, 2014 5:05 am at 5:05 am #1051056
Hey, what was wrong with my post?August 12, 2014 5:08 am at 5:08 am #1051057Little FroggieMember
There is no shidduch crisis. A guy in Meshpacha said so. (problem is only for those that don’t have yet a meshpacha)August 12, 2014 5:26 am at 5:26 am #1051058

I agree! It’s no fun coming here anymore! But I have hope that we can change that…

This is a mysterious post. If you can guess my meaning, shout “Color War!” at the top of your lungs and maybe I’ll hear you.January 2, 2015 4:11 pm at 4:11 pm #1051061screwdriverdelightParticipant
Just thought I’d point out that there’s a shidduch thread crisis today in the CR.
1. Frum Yeshiva working boy
2. If you could change the Shidduch System
3. Parents and Shidduchim
4. 3 most important qualities to look for in a shidduch
5. Is this normal for yeshiva bochurim (OK, more shalom bayis than ‘shidduchim’, maybe)
6. Beshow vs. Dating
7. Googling your Date
8. On the subject of shidduchim…January 2, 2015 4:38 pm at 4:38 pm #1051062☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
Are the threads started by the boys three years older than the threads started by the girls?January 2, 2015 5:10 pm at 5:10 pm #1051063catch yourselfParticipant
I think you’re right, DY.
Let’s offer incentives for the boys to start more threads, so we can reduce the average age differential.
Who wants to call R’ Rechnitz?January 3, 2015 7:02 pm at 7:02 pm #1051064thethinkingjewParticipant
agreed SIDI nothing funny everything too serious….come on CRoomers post some funny threads so people have something funny to read…January 4, 2015 6:32 pm at 6:32 pm #1051065
I think it’s safe to say that nothing has changed since I started this thread four months ago… Maybe even got worse!
We are now in the dead of winter. Short days, long dark nights. Cold, wet and yucky weather… And Purim is not for another two months! We need some excitement, some fun!
Peoplach, I am begging you, forget all the Shidduch threads! Let’s make the CR the geshmakie place it used to be!January 4, 2015 7:40 pm at 7:40 pm #1051066thethinkingjewParticipant
SIDI you start an interesting thread..and we will follow your example..January 4, 2015 8:32 pm at 8:32 pm #1051067Letakein GirlParticipant
The CR changed dramatically every few months cuz people are constantly joining and leaving… We just have to wait this cycle out. Things have to change sometime soon!January 4, 2015 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #1051068Shopping613 🌠Participant
Then there are all the interesting people who never left in the first place?January 4, 2015 11:09 pm at 11:09 pm #1051069
“Interesting” runs extremely short in describing me. (I know my English is poor, thunk is beginning to function again.. was shut for maintenance)January 5, 2015 7:07 am at 7:07 am #1051070ZeesKiteParticipant
Nope.. Most definitely not. Nothing exiting at all.January 5, 2015 6:36 pm at 6:36 pm #1051071ZeesKiteParticipant
Does EVERYBODY have a job?!? Nobody here for “real” life? How I pity youse all.January 6, 2015 3:56 am at 3:56 am #1051072no nonsenseParticipant

Yes, the Italian wasn’t there to scare him away.January 6, 2015 10:08 pm at 10:08 pm #1051076

Where do you store all that information. By me, it’s gone more or less when I type or say it.
And peoplach is a term used for laughing humans.
