WELL SAID!!! A person finding their shidduch (as I’ve heard from many places) requires the minimum amount of hishtadlus than anything else in life. You have to do your part and then all that’s left is Tefilla. Sometimes it feels hard, but you have to realize that when the right time comes, nothing will/can stop Hashem from bringing you to your Bashert. Just looking at the frum world- you see so many shidduchim coming about from ‘the craziest of places’…
Shame, I think it’s only decent to publicly announce the winners- that’s usually what happens…
That’s definitely true, but there should be some announcement of the winner at least? No?
David Y: That was articulated very well!
CG1994: Says who? You know what’s going on in every single person’s life? I wasn’t talking about the facts, I was referring to the sensitivity behind the comment.
HIE: I agree 100%.
Bottom line to everyone out there (and I’m talking to myself in different situations too), to try and think before blurting, too often we are hurting people without even realizing. The situations are endless…
I’m actually a single girl and I do relate quite a bit- I agree that the worst feeling is ‘feeling forgotten about,’ but I do find it comforting when people tell me that they’re davening for me…
What I really dislike is the fact that single girls (I’m not sure if it applies to boys as well) can be at work (I’m talking about a frum environment) and will always be 2nd class- no matter the age (think: opinion, wages, hours). As soon as one has a sheital on their head (and probably a Tallis too :-)), the Parsha seems to change completely!
My favorite line is always “Those hours are fine for you because you don’t have a family…”
