Maybe now with CRISPR gene-editing on the horizon, genetic diseases will become a thing of the past.
Speed dating just allows you to meet more people and weed out potential first dates. In my experience, if you go to a speed dating event and meet 30 girls, you probably heard of/went out with 10-15 of the girls, you’ll say no to 10 girls, and then consider the remaining 5. The problem with these large speed dating events is that they are only helpful for the pretty girls who do really well in social settings. Basically, most of the guys will say yes to the same 5 pretty girls, and it’s a waste of time for everyone else. Part of this is that you can’t get to really know someone from speaking with them for 5-10 minutes, and it gets extremely rudimentary.
For speed dating type events to work, there has to be fewer options available (8-10 boys/girls at an event), and do it with an activity, or maybe do it over a Shabbos meal so you can actually get to know someone outside of the first external impressions that the girls give off.
Sorry about that, I had thought it wouldn’t take long to put on my makeup. I’ll make sure not to do that again.
No. Find something else to complain about.
What if you were exactly halfway around the world from Yerushalayim. Do you daven facing east or west? Question always bothered me.

This story makes no sense. I think the OP is a troll.
“We have been dating for 6 weeks. We met several times, not sure how many times exactly and also texted/phoned each other often.”
So first you called and texted each other often.
“When he told me he wants to stop seeing me I asked if I can talk to his rabbi. He asked his rabbi if he can give me his number but the rabbi said no. Probably I could find him online, but I was advised against it.”
And now all of a sudden he doesn’t have your number!!!

I think speed dating makes a lot of sense in today’s generation. However, this may not be giving a fair shot to guy and girls who don’t do well in those types of settings.

They are appreciated.
Do you also appreciate the soldiers who keep Israel safe so that people can learn there in peace?

If you are talking about the litvishe crowd, especially the “in-town” litvishe crowd, then you are somewhat correct. Of course, I also know countless frum men who are therapists, nurses, plumbers, electricians, diamond dealers (might be considered a business owner), etc… It definitely exists.
Amongst the chassidishe crowd, you are more likely to find those who do other things (driving trucks, etc…).
The election began in earnest with the Iowa Caucuses. GOP front-runner Donald Trump seemed to have been negatively affected by the avian population, as he took second place. Meanwhile, others felt the Bern of the upstart Bernie Sanders, as he was neck-and-neck with Hillary Clinton and went to a virtual draw with Mrs. Clinton.
DY: What’s your guess? They ran out of money? People were abusing the system?
I’ve heard about 8 years ago for girls, and about 5 years ago for boys. With such a population boom and the relatively few number of shadchanim, it’s mostly a matter of practicality.
Where am I on these lists?
I’ve heard that BJJ is the yeshivish Machon Raaya.
Who said all the good girls go to seminary?
Lakewood Yeshiva is actually called BMG – Beth Medrash Govoha. I can think of other yeshivas that only go by a name, and not yeshiva, such as Brisk, Ponovezh, Mikdash, etc… to name just a few.
As for Ukraine, the country actually stands for the Ukrainian Declaration of Independence and Constitution, so it’s “The Ukraine” for short. Although many people just call it Ukraine. Other countries referred to as ‘the’ include Congo, Gambia, Yemen, Lebanon, Sudan, Netherlands, Philippines and Bahamas.
I’ve seen in several places that Russia is Gog/Magog. It looks like the Russians and Putin leading the attack on ISIS is in line with this.
I think if you go through a list of existing threads in the CR, you will find plenty of valuable information.

Perhaps it should be spent learning. Now let’s assume people are playing games on Shabbos…
They have their tuition subsidized by the gvir who sponsors children for free tuition.

You still haven’t explained to me how an unmarried male child fits the description. He’s not a man, because he’s not married. Yet, he still needed to be specifically excluded from the Mishnah. So you basically used circular reasoning to tell me that my issue with women doesn’t apply, because we aren’t talking about that.
What about the male children being explicitly mentioned in the Mishnah about sukkah? Clearly, according to your reasoning, they too are not ????.
Try (718) 338-6464 for the Bostoner Shul location.
Just because they are not ‘adom’ for not being married and for not being landowners, it does not make them women. Maybe they are not men and are instead ghosts, vampires, spirits, or ghouls.
I understand that women are better than men, but the fact that children are also specifically excluded from the sukkah ruins your argument. Are there not male children? And if there are but they have a different ?????? until when they become adults, what transformation happens?
Going to college today is much different than it used to be many years ago. You can go to a commuter school to earn a degrees to become a doctor, nurse, lawyer, financial analyst, accountant, PT, ST, etc…
How would the information learned in these courses differ than reading an article in the newspaper, or learning stuff on the job somewhere? Some of these arguments are ridiculous.
Should we all (except for these very few who thrive creating their own businesses) work at minimum-wage jobs and hope we can withstand as a community? We need more money to be kept in the community for tzedakah and our mosdos. I cannot understand the big deal with going to college to get a nice job. Nobody said to major in philosophy, theology, humanities, etc…
PBA: I think that was just a qualifier.
Perhaps it is a segulah for marriage. The letters in ???? can be rearranged to spell out ? ???!

DY: A girl in her mind should understand (or at least, think it) that the guy she is marrying is the most amazing guy in the world FOR HER. It’s very subjective.
Take a survey and run the numbers.
Has anything happened with the Shabbos App in the last 3 months?
You can’t put a guy who went to college at 20 or 21, or law school at 21, and then started working at age 24, in the same category as a guy who started working basically full-time in a relatively menial job when he was 18-19 years old.February 5, 2015 5:03 pm at 5:03 pm in reply to: "Distance Your Path from It" — The Dangers of Academic Study #1141162
Such a double-standard, especially how I see it in America. On the one hand, it is forbidden to go to college because you could learn things and be exposed to a lifestyle that is far from the realm of growing in ruchniyus. On the other hand, people are exposed to American culture in other ways, such as reading non-kosher books, watching things they shouldn’t (TV shows, movies, etc…). To be completely honest with you, I would much rather my kid take a law or biology class at Columbia University than spend those same hours speaking loshon hara or watching a movie. JMHO.
