Yes I firmly believe that if we cure the sweatshirt problem then we will have cured the “shidduch crisis”
If you have more than one sibling… make sure they all find out on the same day.
Between Monsey and Lakewood twice a day there is the Rockshire for $20. I don’t know if the CR will let me post the number. When you call the number it gives you the times for the day. In Lakewood it stops at the Capital Hotel. If the CR lets I will post the number for you.
Where’s the pipe that turns New Jersey? (There’s Zaidy)
Thank you thank you. Those songs are seared into my brain. no way to get them out. lol.
yes44 – I don’t remember any of those years that you mentioned…sorry
Baal – I don’t have kids yet but I have told those stories over to nieces and nephews. The story about the girl who fed her food to the garbage can and she got all skinny and ugly while the garbage can got pretty and big. That’s one of my favorites.
yent you could come back to Chicago…. it’s supposed to be 60 over the weekend.
Don’t remember sorry. Better luck next time!
yenta its like can you get my father from the beis medrish hes wearing the white shirt and glasses
ummmmmmmmmmmmm when? I like looking at people funny…lol just kidding. But I am glad you didn’t say anything.
Have fun at the wedding!! I know the girl she is really sweet. I actually babysat her once or twice.
They are staying here for Shabbos as well. btw I still didn’t figure out who you are while you figured out who I am. Not fair.
Shalom Mister gimmel and how are you today
I feel baruch Hashem fine is what the gimmel did say
then alef, bais, veis, gimmel went down the street
and who do you think they happened to meet?
it was the daled and the hey and the vav and the zayin
they went to the fountain to drink some mayim
then ches tes yud also came there to them
then ALEF, BAIS, VEIS, GIMMEL, DALE, HEY, VAV, ZAYIN, CHES, TES, YUD……..RAN TO DAVEN TO HASHEM!
We are having people stay at our house for that wedding. It’s not cold cold yet here. lol
Yeah it was the Mitzvah Tree. I remember watching the record spin around as it played. I used to jump up and down next to the player to make the needle jump. My mother didn’t like that too much.
Can you please change the name of the thread. My friend is dying of cancer, believe me you are not dying to know.
42 – Thanks for the laugh!
Hockey – Again, thank you but I’m gonna have to say no.
It’s part of being in galus
hockey fan – Thank you, I appreciate it. But I don’t really want to discuss that on a public forum.
Oh boy I have so much to say so much to say.
I think I will keep my mouth shut on this one…..
Apology accepted. Don’t be so quick to judge.
I wasn’t trying to be condescending. I am not talking about THOSE girls who can’t get dates. Personally I have been in shidduchim for 5 years and only dated 2 guys. I wasn’t going to talk about myself but I want you to see that I am not taking these girl’s nisyonos lightly because I am one of them.
Elmos world – I read your post 4 times and I am still saying WHAT?!?
Girls who have many dates and girls who don’t have many dates. That doesn’t seem to say much about a girl. (unless you call being rich something) It simply says they have different nisyonos. One has the nisayon of emunah to know that even though she isn’t going out often, her bashert is waiting for her. The other girl has the nisayon of being disappointed every times she goes out.
Personally I would rather have the nisayon of emunah over the nisayon of being disappointed. We dont, however, get to chose.
What does that mean that you had enough of going out with girls who can’t seem to get dates. Every girl is an individual. Each with her own set of middos, talents, and difficulties. Who cares how many times she has gone out.
If you can explain this to me, I would appreciate it.
Someone I know had a broken engagement and a certain Dayan told her that she is NOT to tell shadchanim or the family of the boy that she had a broken engagement. This is something that the girl will tell the boy as the relationship progresses. There are many people who break engagements through no fault of their own. Should people be afraid to break an engagement that is not a healthy one because of the stigma, only to get divorced or live with a horrible marriage? There is no reason to tell the other side right away.
The fact that people refer to young men and ladies as “top girl” and “top boy” is sickening. All of Hashem’s children are top girls and top boys.
My family eats dates so that I will get some dates… I guess they want me married off.
I was in 7th grade and our teachers were all crying. It was scary. We had a big assembly in one of the classrooms and our teachers told us. Most of us didn’t even know what the World Trade Centers were.
yeps really special.
Attn Mods: I think you can close this thread now.

Sorry if you felt attacked dora. I don’t appreciate generalizations. There are too many people who say the shidduch crisis is because of this or the shidduch crisis is because of that. Every single person who is in this “crisis” is an individual and there is no one way to fix it.
And Gefen I wasn’t insulted. Don’t you worry
Thanks. People have different opinions. I don’t like when some people make generalizations though. oh well.July 24, 2012 11:25 pm at 11:25 pm in reply to: H-a-s-h-e-m H-e-l-p M-e F-i-n-d A S-h-i-d-d-u-c-h-!-! #888494
I Wasn’t trying to be cute. I am seriously confused. I am not one of those girls who just got back from seminary and is high in the clouds. I’ve been through a lot. Anyone who knows me can back me up on that. I am not one of those people who has a checklist of what the boy needs to be. I’ve been hurt by the system and right now I am very open minded. I still don’t think it is fair to say that if I am not married it means I don’t want to be.July 24, 2012 7:47 pm at 7:47 pm in reply to: H-a-s-h-e-m H-e-l-p M-e F-i-n-d A S-h-i-d-d-u-c-h-!-! #888487
I am not married because:
A: I don’t really want to be married
B: I really want to marry my father and I can’t find anyone like him so I chose to be alone.
Got it thanks dorafelderJuly 24, 2012 12:16 am at 12:16 am in reply to: H-a-s-h-e-m H-e-l-p M-e F-i-n-d A S-h-i-d-d-u-c-h-!-! #888482
I think I will be seeing both of you (gefen and yummy) on tisha b’av but I don’t think that’s a good time to have a cr reunion.
But it does make me smile when I see you!July 23, 2012 4:40 pm at 4:40 pm in reply to: H-a-s-h-e-m H-e-l-p M-e F-i-n-d A S-h-i-d-d-u-c-h-!-! #888476
Thanks Gefen. I hope your daughter finds her bashert quickly!
I dare you to say good morning to people that you pass on the street
My brother in law told me that girls have an inferiority complex because we call each other guys. oh wellJuly 23, 2012 4:53 am at 4:53 am in reply to: H-a-s-h-e-m H-e-l-p M-e F-i-n-d A S-h-i-d-d-u-c-h-!-! #888473
thanks Yummy for sticking up for me. I was beginning to think I was the only sane one around here. oh btw nice to see you on Shabbos.July 20, 2012 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm in reply to: H-a-s-h-e-m H-e-l-p M-e F-i-n-d A S-h-i-d-d-u-c-h-!-! #888455
dorafelder – What is that supposed to mean “The ones who get married are the ones who REALLY want to be married.” You’re telling me that your daughter who got married at 27 didn’t want to get married before that? I know plenty of people who “REALLY want to be married” who are not. Can you please explain that?July 18, 2012 2:48 pm at 2:48 pm in reply to: What to do for dinner when your wife is upstate in the Catskills #970326
Call up your wife and tell her that you realize how much she actually does for you.
As they say…. you don’t realize what you have until you don’t have it anymore.
Yummy, I was out of town…sorry.
Happy Birthday to me!
Nice one Goq
I walked into the Dunkin Donuts on Devon and asked for a coffee and they couldn’t believe that I wanted a hot one.
Make sure your air conditioning works!!
Have a good Shabbos.
I tried posting it but it didn’t go through. Google Agudas Israel of Illinois
There is a Perchei day camp in Chicago. Call Agudas Israel of Chicago.
gefen – I’m not either there every Shabbos because my bed doesn’t let me. It just hit me who you are. Your daughter comes pretty often?
syag – I already tried guessing who you were some time ago and I came up with a blank.
I feel like I should know all of you but I don’t. Give me hints please!
I was able to hear the music from the bon fire at my house so I didn’t bother showing up till it was almost all over. Sorry gefen for not responding till now.
Wow a thread just for me! I’m truly honored! I don’t lurk around this room all day. I just check it out every so often.
I couldn’t really respond to the cholov yisroel question cuz I don’t drink milk so I wouldn’t know.
You think you know who I am? That’s nice cuz I don’t really know who I am. So if you figure it out and let me know, that would be nice. lol.
So Gefen…… who are you? Was that you in Kol Tuv this morning?
as I said…don’t get me started…
wow don’t even get me started on this….. Someone told me that his son has a right to see a picture before the date so he should know if he is wasting his time or not because he wants a good looking wife so that his children will be good looking.
I said what about the chinuch of the kids. good looking or not, it’s the mother who is the kids first teacher. Shouldnt hashkafos and middos be more important?
He didn’t have an answer.
syag – I was on a date and the guy asked me if I know what yoshon and cholov yisroel are since we probably don’t get it in Chicago. I said yeah and guess what we keep Shabbos as well. Srsly why did he agree to go out with me?
gefen – I was thinking of bringing Mrs. O’Leary’s cow but it was a big mess last time….
