i have s/t similar – without the yawns, but like i can’t always take good deep breaths and then i feel short of breath which is really frustrating. and no one has been able to tell me what to do. s/o did tell me s/t the other day; she said it helped her, i didn’t really see it, but maybe it’ll help you – to take as deep breath as you can thru ur nose and breath out also thru ur nose slowly and then try to take that regular deep breath. she said it helps. hatzlacahMay 24, 2010 9:14 pm at 9:14 pm in reply to: Volcano, Sharei Gehenom? #685830
why not?May 23, 2010 9:38 pm at 9:38 pm in reply to: Cholov Stam #685382
this is a shtickle crazy. why don’t we all eat what we eat, drink what we drink, since no one is convincing anyone else, and all be a lot happier and calmer that we’re not arguing anymore!!
i personally eat cholov yisrael, many of my friends and also my family eat cholov stam, and we all love each other just fine. so stop it already! we’re all just tearing each other apart and there’s no tachlis to it!May 10, 2010 6:38 am at 6:38 am in reply to: Funny Shidduch Stories #1227365
you’re right of course, bein hasdorim. i don’t mean that the people are worthless, and of course i treat them fine. i meant that they’re not for me, and going out with someone for no reason really makes me crazy.
popa, about the goral – listen, if you’re as great as the steipler, i fell priveleged to know you (sort of anyway) and can i have a bracha? otherwise — well i can’t tell you what to do, so i wish you a lot of hatzlacha in everything you do and hope nothing bad comes out of it. and can i have a bracha? al tehi bircas hedyot kalla be’eynecha… 😉May 6, 2010 9:29 pm at 9:29 pm in reply to: Funny Shidduch Stories #1227357

dovv that’s what you get when you buy pb for sandwiches and then forget that halfway thru the month you’ll get bored of sandwiches, but that’s too bad cuz bread is about the only thing we have in abudance!
lakewood wife: budgeting. that’s what it’s called. veggies: too expensive, flour: couldn’t think of enough uses when i was shopping, and besides, couldn’t think much of anything w/ the makolet staff trying to get me out of there so they could go home early for yom hashoah.

happened to me:
on our second date, we were still both pretty awkward, so we sit down in the hotel lounge (also our first time out, the first was a sit it), and after a few minutes of VERY awkward converstion, he takes out a siddur with mefoshim and says, “wanna learn?” i’m like to myself, “okaaaaaaay, this is strange,” but being the unexperienced dater of then, i said yes, which ended up in like a half hour shiur on shema. it was quite interesting though.
we did not get married.April 21, 2010 9:26 pm at 9:26 pm in reply to: Funny Shidduch Stories #1227332
funny shidduch story, happened to my camp director:
she and her husband both speak yiddish, but he’s chassidish and she’s not so they speak different dialects. somewhere along the line, he asks her a question, and she, not really understanding what he said and not wanting to sound stupid, nods and says, “yuh, yuh.” about four days later, he proposes in english. she says yes. he tells her that they were actually engaged four days ago. she looks at him in disbelief, until he tells her that that was the question that he’d ask that she hadn’t understood and just said “Yuh, yuh!” 😉April 13, 2010 6:12 pm at 6:12 pm in reply to: Bitochan/Shiduchim #690605
i think there are certain situations where a twenty year old is entitled to feel aggravated that she’s not married yet. for example, i know an eighteen year old girl who is a very good girl, even considered chashuveh, but because of some family situation or other, is being redt shidduchum that are TOTALLY not for her and she’s is understandably very frustrated and lonely. another example – a girl i know, also eighteen, is not living at home, she’s living by herself, sometimes renting with a friend – but she’s very lonely, and understandably, frustrated that she’s not yet married.
