I met one shadchan in Boro Park who charged 10,000$. We didn’t pay, so he never redt me anything, but he’s made some very wealthy shidduchim.
Considering the thousands of dollars I paid in travel, clothing, grooming, etc. over the years (I was younger when I met him, older when I got married), I wonder if I had forked over the cash, perhaps I would’ve saved myself $ and found a wealthier spouse – win-win. Oh, well.
I believe guys are generally asked first because they have more suggestions, so if they say no, the girl never finds out and doesn’t feel bad, and the guy moves on to the next.
If a girl says yes and the guy says no, her feelings can be hurt. She’ll sulk and pine till the next suggestion comes along, which may not be for months.
If the guy says yes and the girl says no, he can feel bad for a minute and then say, “Next!”November 4, 2016 3:30 am at 3:30 am in reply to: They should sell just the cookie part of the ice cream sandwich #1217677
the cookie part only tastes good ‘cuz the ice cream softens the cookie. A plain cookie isn’t gonna taste as good… I second WinnieThePooh’s really good idea.
I mean, of course, Dates for dating. Dates is i siman for having enemies destroyed, so that’s great.
I’ve heard of cutting a pear in half to “find the other half of your pair”.
Dates seem like a bad siman b/c dating sucks; getting married is the ikkar.
When I taught 11th grade, I did the play 12 Angry Men. It’s totally clean (mayyyybe 1 bad word, just white it out when you make copies) and very fun for the girls to read. There’s also a black and white movie that goes with it, and it’s very clean, too.
I also did The Enemy of The People. There is maybe 1, 1.5 pages of “romance” that you can white out/skip, but I feel that calls too much attention to it. It is so innocent that I doubt most ppl would notice. However, there are so mild bad words that would need to be whited out.
Huck Finn was a lot of fun. That’s a classic that everyone does in 11th grade. Definitely do that.
