The better question is why do I sometimes see otherwise frum men without peyos?May 23, 2011 3:32 pm at 3:32 pm in reply to: wedding dresses and walking down the aisle #770273
Mayan: Going TO the Chupa with her hair uncovered or FROM the Chupa? In the latter case she is already an eishes ish with a chiyuv to have covered hair.

The OTD issue stems from the lack of proper parental and school discipline and the breakdown of proper boundaries and the resulting laxity where children are allowed inappropriate contact with people they should not be with (i.e. opposite gender, and teens who are not fully Torah observant.)May 20, 2011 2:35 pm at 2:35 pm in reply to: Share Your Worst Date Ever! #777968

If you’re the type of girl whose husband (or, if unmarried, father) goes aroud in jeans, you probably will wear wear jeans. If you’re the type of girl who doesn’t appreciate your husband in jeans, you wont wear jeans.May 19, 2011 3:38 am at 3:38 am in reply to: Jean skirts #768690

There is no right or expectation to privacy when one is involved in a shidduch. And rightfully so. (Between the parties to the potential shidduch.)May 18, 2011 8:27 pm at 8:27 pm in reply to: Desperate Deceptions #769938

So looking for someone with a good sense of humor would not be a consideration for you, since it is more important to find a healthy person?
Why a sense of humor yes, but zchus avos/yichus no?May 18, 2011 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm in reply to: yichus in shidduchim #769682
Wolf: who said at the expense of something else?
Would you want to marry a person with a sense of humor?
Is your response going to be “not at the expense of marrying a healthy person”?May 18, 2011 7:44 pm at 7:44 pm in reply to: shaving this friday #1072903
I thought only Chasidisa women shave.May 18, 2011 7:28 pm at 7:28 pm in reply to: shaving this friday #1072900

Taking a day off (or even part thereof) of Yeshiva, for an extracurricular activity, is the purest form of Bitul Torah. You are actually scheduled — no less your regular schedule — to learn Torah, and throw the opportunity away??May 16, 2011 10:05 pm at 10:05 pm in reply to: Introverts thread #1193397

It’s vital a woman be immediately identifiable as married. It would be nice for men too, but not as critical. Sinning (even “innocently”) with a married woman is a doomsday scenerio; a married man is bad too, but different.May 16, 2011 9:12 pm at 9:12 pm in reply to: Introverts thread #1193393
Can some of the introverts here please describe how you are introverted (and if it bothers you)?May 16, 2011 9:10 pm at 9:10 pm in reply to: ARMED guards by yeshivas and beis yakovs #767461

Actually it is the right that is accepting, whereas the left is anything but accepting. While the left will constantly hammer the right for everything (take a look at any number of blogs in the “jblogsphere”), folks in the right are most welcoming to the most fanatically leftists anti-religious with open invitations to their homes, bikur cholim, and a whole host of love — all without a single string attached.May 12, 2011 2:46 pm at 2:46 pm in reply to: shidduchim- a phase or a life? #766507
popa, I specifically explained already in my comment why it IS a very good idea.
