    “One of the maalos of meeting someone outside of regular dating is that you can see what someone is like in real life. This is particularly true of Shabbos meals.”
    LU: If you are at a shabbos meal to “meet” people you are not meeting them in “real life” as long as they know and you know it’s all just a show on a different playing field…

    Everybody has a few (2-5) REAL *musts* that make it or break it but you have to get rid of all the nonsensical *musts* that people have when they start out. I know a guy that started out with a paper full of *musts* and now he’s just looking for a normal girl…

    Do you know there are certain “reliable kosher certifications for example OU” that people do not eat all year round?

    Good things about the CR:

    1: It takes away from the internet.
    2: You see other points of view.
    3: You can talk to the opposite gender in a “kosher” way.
    4: You can practice not accepting lashon hara.

    The girls need to be constantly reminded of their roles in life (because nowadays there are girls that don’t believe that their MAIN role in life is to be a “wife and mother”)…that’s why they would “refer” to them like that.

    “I was very relieved when I heard this because there can be very good people who did not keep all the 7 Mitzvos perfectly or for the right reasons.”

    LU: Why??!?
    Also the Rambam (I think it’s the same one as before) says that even if a goy does keep the 7 mitzvos if they don’t do it because hashem told them to they don’t get a chailek.

    For example if a goy doesn’t kill or steal because it’s not moral (or against the law) or he’s loyal to his wife because he’s scared or he loves her…he WILL NOT get a chailek.

    Even if they have the same assur content would one be better or worse hashkafically?
    I.E. Could it be easier to stop one over the other?
    Is one less or more accepted in your community and would that be good or bad?
    For an american is Israeli stuff “jewish” so that’s worse? Or maybe their less prone to get affected because their farther removed from that culture (and might not even understand it)?

    It’s the job of the husbands to make sure their wives dress tzniusly.
    So to answer the question the men should have more yiras shomayim and tell their wives to dress tzniusly or their getting a divorce…

    Melted cream cheese in a bagel is a taste of gan eden so if you’re a goy (and goyim don’t get a chailek) you should probably not toast it…

    syag: LU got EXACTLY what I meant. Boys will be boys. The fact that they act a certain way does not mean their rabbeim / yeshivos told them to do so (this may come as a shock to you…). Maybe yeshivos should REITERATE to be more respectful but we’re talking about children they’re not mechuyav in mitzvos for a reason. This may also come as a shock to you but children sometimes act chutzpadik in yeshiva also! should we shut down yeshivos? NO we are mechanech them so that they’ll become the nachas to klal yisroel that we know they could be.

    ps.

    There are A LOT of adults that do not have proper decorum in shul maybe we should start with them and it might (probably will) have an impact on the children…

    ” And since we’re looking at the mitzvah of chinuch, would it not be prudent to teach talmidim to be respectful of someone’s tefiloh by not disturbing him in the middle of it? “

    NO it would not be prudent they teach in yeshiva to disturb as much davening as possible…

    Also they teach especially when collecting to be as annoying as possible so the people that don’t want to give have a good excuse…

    “And they make that clear when they put out warnings and guidelines that don’t say that you are not allowed to drink, but instead tell you how to drink.”

    That doesn’t mean they allow it. It means that they understand that no one will listen anyway so you might as well do it safely.

    Lilmod, i’m no posek but I assume that if most the people in the country don’t follow the law then it’s not considered a law…

    But, if all the goyim follow a law and the jews want to plead religious then ddm’d would probably come into play…

    My question was are there any laws that we jews don’t follow because they’re “strange” and the goyim do?

    “If it were, we would all be in trouble, because there are a lot of strange laws on the books that no one follows.”

    Just curious as to which laws you’re talking about..? (no one meaning goyim or only jews..?)
