I personally find Android products to be more practical. And cheaper of course.
I didn’t read that article but I’ve seen the numbers. The 1-2 years only starts after the person going otd is already an adult. The numbers for otd teenagers vary. In fact, most of my friends who were otd as teenagers are now frum and happily married. Good luck!
Will my sons turn out like my brothers? I’m not looking forward to that.
I really hope not.
Try learning something new. Like Chinese…
Some rabbonim do believe in evolution. You should do your research before you assume that evolution automatically means the world is trillions of years old.
Ever heard of Restricted? I’ve had to do my share of networking and when I get a request from someone I’m not so comfortable being friends with, I had him/her to the restricted list.
You need help. Professional help. And most importantly, join a support group for people with controlling/ocd spouses. It’s really important for you to hear from other people in the same situation as you. This is a chat room, not a place to get help.
I don’t know where u live, but I believe some communities have organizations that help out mothers of newborn babies especially mothers of multiples. That can be time fulfilling as well as gratifying.
Curiosity, in theory, your idea sounds great, but it’s not for everyone. Since both genders don’t normally mix in the Jewish world, many guys wouldn’t know how to chat up a girl even if they had the opportunity. And I say this even though I did not meet my husband through a shadchan and I’m really grateful that I was open to the idea since no shadchan would’ve ever introduced us. So I’d probably still be single if I was waiting for some shadchan to introduce me to my bashert.
Thehock, great post. I agree with everything besides for your last comment. Going to sleep before straightening out a disagreement can be a very bad idea. Because if there’s no time in the morning to talk about it, it’ll keep being pushed off and then what was initially a little disagreement may very well turn into a full blown fight.
From experience, I can tell u height usually stops mattering once u get to know the person. Unless you’re extremely turned off by it…
I disagree. While we were dating, my (now) husband used to let me decide where we’d go, what we’d do. Even now that we’re married, it isn’t ever just one of us making all the decisions. That’s a ridiculous and baseless assumption.
The key is not to say: I will only marry a _______ (fill in the blank with blond, skinny, etc.) But, one IS entitled to say: I am not attracted to skinny/blond/tall/green-eyed/ girls. There is a difference between the two.
Farrocks, Hashem created different people with different looks. He also created people with various looks they find attractive. No man should be forced to marry a woman he isn’t attracted to. Are the men who don’t like skinny girls also shallow? Or is it only the ones who don’t like the heavier girls?
Sorry about the typo. I meant “wolfish” and not wogashlfish.
Frumguy, just because you have a high tolerance for cold, doesn’t mean everyone else does too. I wear boots throughout the winter just to keep the cold out.
Wogashlfish, you’re right, that wasn’t much to go on. He loves a mental challenge, and is a sports fan. Otoh, he’s a big fan of quiet quality time too.
WIY, when I wrote he isn’t material, I didn’t mean that he wouldn’t appreciate something gashmyus. What I meant was that he wouldn’t appreciate expensive or extravagant gifts.
Farrocks, I disagree. There’s no reason why two people can’t celebrate a major milestone in their life.
Wolfish, all I can say is that he’s not material. He wouldn’t enjoy a tie like farrocks suggested or a watch, wallet, etc.
qsman, we don’t live in NY.
