    There are plenty of girls who are looking for working boys. Do you think they’re second-class too? Do you think they’re not frum enough? Girl who are looking for learning boys will date learning boys, and it is not their job to validate your life choices.

    @ Rava would change “outgoing” to “confident” but otherwise totally agree.

    @GadolHadorah They say feral cats kill billions of birds each year. Not to mention numerous species of Pacific islands flightless bird made extinct by them. I myself have found the remains of several of their victims around my house. If it was up to me any cat not wearing a bell collar would be shot on site.

    Anyone who has been dating for several years will have experienced a fair share of rejections. Trust me you’re not the only one in this situation. Without knowing you, I can’t give any personalized advice, but I can share something I have learned as a (somewhat) older single, and that is just be yourself. Try-hard and pandering doesn’t work with girls. Always be polite always be a gentleman, but be yourself.

    My grandfather a”h was a great guy who got married at 38. I never asked him what took so long. All’s well that ends well. Chazak Ve’ematz.

    @ GadolHadorah It is still Pidyon Shvuyim and a very great mitzvah. Or should we abandon them to years in prison (or mandatory death sentences in many Asian countries)? Do you know of any Rav that has said we should just abandon them? That would require very great pleitzes indeed. What if it was your close relative?

    He’s the best President Israel has ever had. Nothing else matters for a large segment of “Orthodox” voters.

    Hmm, looks like Reichlin-Melnick did win after all.

    @common saychel That’s a grand total of 2813 (mostly) frum votes cast for Weber out of the 51,571 votes he received in total, or 5.5%. Weber currently leads by 3149 votes, with 27,593 absentee ballots still uncounted, 60% mailed by registered Democrats, so do the math, Weber will not win.
    To summarize, the Frum vote is just about powerful enough in Rockland County to elect Town Supervisor/ Local Dogcatcher, and that’s about it.

    @ common saychel Reichlin-Melnick will win after mail-in ballots are counted. Also New Square voted for Reichlin-Melnick 666-95, so much for the frum vote.

    cuomo in any national position would indeed be a nightmare.

    All along we voted for pro-late term abortion, pro militant homo-transsexuals and threw Torah principles under the bus because of our special “relationship” and “connections” with Democrat politicians. To quote Churchill, “you chose peace over honor, you shall have neither.”

    You would think International Jewry would take more of a stand on this issue, considering their historical experience. Remarkable how they shift between “interests” and “values”, depending on which is more convenient. Seems like this is more of an “interests” situation, antagonizing China is definitely not good for Israel.

    You can try KYS. Not a large member pool, but who knows maybe you will find someone.

    Redleg, we are American citizens, yes, we can show a piece of paper that says we are American “citizens”, but we are not Americans, just like we weren’t Poles, Russians, Germans, Hungarians, Spaniards, Englishmen etc. “HEY Goyim, we are Americans just like you” doesn’t fool anyone, and leads to anti-semitism.

    @Milhouse If someone wants to use the house when CTLawyer is not in Florida, they are expected to pay market rate rent. By your logic every tenant is exempt from paying rent because the landlord isn’t using the apartment anyways.

    @ yehudayona If someone wants to use CTLawyer’s house when he is not in Florida, they are required to pay market rate rent. Same applies to the driveway. By your logic every tenant is exempt from rent because the landlord isn’t using the apartment anyway.

    Best idea is simply to find another shul instead of working yourself up over something it’s very unlikely you can change.

    The quality of the writing in Hamodia is far superior to Yated, and frankly more sane and intelligent.
