WIY- I hear you , I have the same problem- yes its a problem!
I never noticed I did it until one friend put me in my place. In essence what we are saying to the speaker is that we couldn’t care less about what they are saying. (its probably a bit of ADD)September 2, 2013 4:53 pm at 4:53 pm in reply to: How to break up (the shidduch way) #972931
If you are doing it the shidduch way than you would go through the shadchan which is a big part of making our life less complicated when things don’t work out. However if you dated a while and are/was emotionally invested I believe the right thing to do is speak to him directly (over the phone will probably be easier then face to face)
I was on the other side of your story. The guy called me to break it off and gave his reasons. I was terribly hurt but took it with grace and thanked Hashem for a while after (and still today) that it didn’t work out.
Comparing is a natural normal thing which can be good in helping you build a healthy relationship but can also be destructive. Because you dated this guy for a while you will definitely be doing a lot of comparing. If you give yourself time before you meet someone else the less likely the comparing will be destructive.

Robertz I wish I had a full understanding, as you seem to have, of what went on for the Jewish people during this time period.The sad truth is that I don’t. Right now I think I’m doing, along with most of the Jewish population, my very best. I am keeping to the halacha and being more sensitive by not listening to non-jewish music and music at all. I admire you for having such passionate feelings and a sensitivity that I do not posses.June 24, 2013 5:15 pm at 5:15 pm in reply to: Pre-paid Cell Phone Plans #960967
Page plus all the way! 40 buck for unlimited talk and text 200mb data.
They use verizon network which is the best. You can pay monthly or have them automatically charge your card.
You can get on Amazon the droid incredible for 50 bucks- its a pretty solid phone , I drop it almost everyday and there is no signs of this abuse.
Don’t use any off brand pay-as-you-go! it is not worth the aggravation of bad networks and the crappy phones.
T-Mobile also has good deal if you need the internet $55 unlimited everything.June 24, 2013 5:07 pm at 5:07 pm in reply to: Bike Route Brooklyn-Catskills #961305

This person asked a Rav – whom I happened to trust and respect but is not my Rabbi (I do not have one čÖü ) and he said that her intention is “to beautify” and therefore it is muttar. I was very surprised but figured if he paskined that she can for those reasons then maybe I should look into it in regards to a regular tattoo.
Secondly thanks for the article. Maybe this statement “as tattooing is connected to idolatry” gives that wiggle room, for eye makeup has no connection to idolatry.June 6, 2013 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm in reply to: Tattoo eyeliner #959272
Anyone who has eyeliner tattoo and looked into it before they did it?
Yserbius123- Like I said, and I quote myself “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
I think a skull across my dorsal region would be beautiful.June 5, 2013 7:23 pm at 7:23 pm in reply to: Tattoo eyeliner #959268
Brony, did you look into it or is this merely a statement made on basic knowledge?
By no means am I saying it is muttar; I want to hear from people who have looked into it.
I know a few frum, orthodox woman who have gotten eyeliner tattoo’s. One woman told me her Rabbi said its muttar because “it enhances natural features.”June 5, 2013 6:08 pm at 6:08 pm in reply to: Jewish Students Off Plane #957662
How is this antisemitism? About 100 kids were acting rowdy,and unruly in public on an aircraft were there is strict protocol. Do I think the action taken against this behavior is antisemitism? No!

sw33t: Exactly! it is none of our business how people spend their money. One has no right to make cheshbonos for other people- and who really cares?
Honestly, if someone can afford it why not? We have one life to live and who said they are not giving Tzedaka in the same proportions that you are? or even more?
Just because you see them with a Gucci bag it doesn’t mean they aren’t donating a lot of money . Even so , it is NONE OF OUR BUSINESS, us simple people.April 23, 2013 7:13 pm at 7:13 pm in reply to: Fun with store names #948126
Too soon for jokes my friend, too soon.April 18, 2013 8:35 pm at 8:35 pm in reply to: Washing Disposable Cups #946863
I once went to an Israeli family for shabbos, so you can imagine all the chumus, tehina and other Israeli foods we were fed. I was repulsed when I saw the hostess washing out all of our plastic ware. Forks, knives, plates, cups – you name it!
Rest assured, our plates felt quite slimy the next day. Ugh, washing plastic utensils are a big nono.
Most people buy plastic for convenience, the convenience is to throw them out. If your already washing them out why not use regular dishes?April 18, 2013 7:27 pm at 7:27 pm in reply to: Ritalin, Focalin, Concerta, Adderal #1154726
Yes, as a child I was abnormally restless and scatter brained. As an adult obviously certain behavior can be controlled. I am by no means saying there is no such thing as ADHD. Like I said previously, right now I am exploring the idea that my past may have been the cause of many ADHD symptoms. I personally would prefer working on myself then taking meds, if this is an option. In my case, at first I thought it was nature, now Im thinking nurture čÖé
scatter brained much?
Only time can tell…April 18, 2013 2:24 pm at 2:24 pm in reply to: All Children Who Leave Our Community Should Pain Us Equally #947398
I never thought the CR can make me so mad. I don’t deny that torah and religion is the truth and nothing but the truth. However, when someone goes off the derech , at that point in their life religion is NOTHING to them. To me whats important when seeing such people, is knowing at least they are in a HEALTHY place, “happy” with themselves and what their doing, feeling fulfilled. At this point in their life its not about religioun anymore!! Its sad but this is the harsh truth. It sickens me to think that people would rather see these yordim suffer with themselves and destroy there existence for the slight possibility that there will be a return. Obviously people go through fazes but when you hit 21 if your not heading back yet chances are its not happening anytime soon.April 17, 2013 8:43 pm at 8:43 pm in reply to: Going off the Derech #1183192
sw33t – is this a joke? once a kid is off the derech would you not prefer that they are successful people as opposed to miserable,suffering addicts?
I guess some self hating religious people would rather see someone whos off the derech suffering then being successful. ( and I am not referring to you sw33t)April 17, 2013 6:41 pm at 6:41 pm in reply to: Ritalin, Focalin, Concerta, Adderal #1154720
Thank you all, reading many of your posts that your upbringing can cause you to have symptoms of ADHD, encouraged me to work on myself. Beforehand , I felt that if it is a part of my being then working on myself wont help. Now that I realize (and confirmed) that aspects of my childhood created certain behavior, I am ready to take this leap.April 16, 2013 4:33 pm at 4:33 pm in reply to: If all of Halacha was Given at Mt.

DaasYochid – I said turned off. The issur of creating a chillul Hashem is not only amongst non-Jews , its amongst your fellow brethren as well. The reason why I am saying this is because many times we have to do things that non-jews think are completely absurd and look down at us for(i.e.bris mila, davening in public) but in this case , it goes both ways and is obviously not halacha.If one wants to be machmir – let them do it in their own dalid amos.April 11, 2013 8:51 pm at 8:51 pm in reply to: PHOTO: Orthodox Jewish Man Covers Himself In Plastic Bag On Plane #945777
No matter what reason he had, in my humble opinion this is a CHILUL HASHEM and no I am not worried what the goyim think. If I was on an airplane only with religious Jews I would still very much be turned off by this mans actions.April 11, 2013 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm in reply to: Why do people do this? #948745
Can I ask you guys a question , um.. like why do people aggressively snap gum as if their chewing is inherently controlling a bomb from exploding?
