Winnie, what we do is that he sits in the back and my friend and I talk as if his not in the car. By now I am sure he understands that he is nowhere close to having the chance to date me or my friend. But my question is, is this allowed or what can we do to make the situation more tznius?
Avram, I need to slow down and it is very hard when others are going much faster than you and are speeding around you. If I did get a ticket it was from a camera not the cop his or her self.
Joseph, it is a chesed to help boys who are having a hard time with yidishkeit and are finally returning to their lost roots.
YungermanS, would it be tznius for me to give him the car keys and let him drive instead of me? Would that make it more tznius? And I sit in the back with my friend that sometimes comes with us?
I had a very hard day today, so I missed my shiur today. Gam zu letova!
This is a whole new issue compared to the other persons.
yehudayona, I am not from New York so why would I know more than lightbrite what bungalow colonies are?
I would hope you know what a bungalow colony is unless your from a 3rd world country. People go there in the somewhere as a gateway.
Very nice takahmamash! iyh soon by me.
Do shadchanim have any concern for the people they set up or I am just on their check off list that they talked to me and have a nice day? The shadchan I called answers people right away. Is that a good sign?
Lilmod, I am not sure if your post is referring to me since I am not a baal teshuva and I do have a rav. Who is your post referring to?
High school are the best years of a persons live, live it and love it.
Lilmod, other posts I read that you wrote you said you were an older single, so how do you have kids? You said “my daughters teen”?
Jhonny, even I did not show up to school. I missed so much that they did not even realize that I left. They thought it was me gone for another few days and going to come back a few days later, so good for you.February 6, 2017 4:08 am at 4:08 am in reply to: problems with not jewish college and this is why you should go to touro #1215008
Everything works out in the end, Hashem makes sure that those who really deserve A get those A and those that deserve those B get those B. I had a similar issue in my college where I could not finish everything, so I did whatever I could and I had a very good teacher who gave me the A and understood me.
Buy stuff on sale.
Jhonny, a lot does not mean everyone. The GEDers, including myself, say they regret leaving high school early even if they spent a nice good few years during high school in college. Those years are years you spend all to your self and have friends with you. There the best years of your life, do not ruin them.
Teens do not appreciate high school until its too late.
Johnny, what will you do when your older and in the real world? You wont always get what you want.
How did this go from talking about high school drop outs to lawyers? Can we stick to the topic?
Does anyone know anything about eshas lapidus? I know their located in Lakewood. What about the shadchanim there, are they any good? How many shadchanim should I meet if I am going to go to Lakewood for the day just for shadchanim and come back the same day?
Meno, I am not looking to joke around or for trolls on here, I am looking for honest opinions.
In law I am pretty sure no matter what you need to be on the side of your client, right CTlawyer?
No, obviously someone learning now full time and wants to learn in kollel.
Any recommendations of shadchanim in lakewood that deal with kollel boys?
Jhonny, even tho the jobs may not require a high school diploma, the diploma is for your own good. Everyone needs an education, you want to be on the same playing field as others and not below their level.
I think, Daas Yochid, johnny meant that she does not want someone who does not want her for who she is as a person and that is okay because I am the same way. I want a kollel boy who is looking for a girl like me, not like he wants me to fit a certain mold and if I do not fit it, he does not want me.
Also, baisyaakovliberal, jhonny will have the ability to go onto college with a GED. Without a high school education, there is not much she can do like how you said. There are many people who leave high school and go to college with a GED because of similar reasons to jhonny and they do very well there.
I agree with you, jhonny. But, education is for your own good not for others. It does not matter if your a doctor and your husband is a nurse. What matters is you, not others, when it comes to education.
Do not drop out of school I just read your post about your life story and you would most likely regret the decision. You will not be able to do anything with your life. Ask your teachers what you can do to make up for your bad grades. Set off on a positive foot not negative foot. Work harder in school make new friends look at everything that you will miss looking back in another 3 years. Look at all those chumash, navi, parsha, ivrit, etc wonderful classes that you will never be able to get again.
What should you do if the shadchan is very big and very busy and doesnt answer?
Any good shadchanim in lakewood that works with boys learning full time?
Thank you for all the advice. In the end as of right now i will be postponing the dating until mid June.
What is a good time to call the shadchan?
Is an email message enough for the shadchan? Would they set you up or just ignore the email because they have so many others?
What should you do if the shadchan doesnt answer? Should you leave a message? What should the message say?
Its not tznius to look at a girl. People should not be makpid on looks because then it will make you have a harder time getting married.
Is it okay for a 20 year old girl to call a shadchan whos a rabbi about setting her up? Are there any suggestions for good shadchanim that i can call? What should i say when i talk to the shadchan?January 17, 2017 9:41 pm at 9:41 pm in reply to: Making fun of college degrees that won't get you a job #1209468
There are plenty of art degrees that will make money.
Yes it is an issue. Its equivalent to having a boyfriend. Would you go out and hang out with guys? If not then stop your relationship.
Maybe try calling the shadchan to remind her?
Did anyone read the balancing act? I need to wait to read emunah with love and chicken soup since they dont have it at the library right now.
Thank you for the advice. I will email my resume what should i say?
Can i send my resume to the shadchan without calling first? Do i need to call or can i just send my resume?
Is it really that bad if im 20 and still not dating? Whats your opinion on that? Im getting scared that im still not married?
But i really want to work with someone who works with finding kollel guys i am not interested in marrying someone who learns and works. Do they work with this kind of thing?
Do you have to pay for it because i dont have money for that?
I get nervous to be on the phone and get scared i wont know what to say.
Thats why i was asking for a mentor because i need someone to help me get prepared.
A posek is not Hashem. I will allow Hashem to send me a sign of who my basheret is.
