    I usually dont post, but read the cr all the time. I have been following the parsha of AYC pretty much the entire time. Now if I would be AYC I would never come back with that name again. If I would want to come back I would just open a new username and post on that one. My personal thought; I think AYC is among us and posting under a different name, but I may be wrong.

    I do sometimes see these girls that have become cooler than their original code of law, find it cool to chew gum very loud. IF you ask me I think it looks bad and is absolutely disgusting… ha, So much for looking cool..

    I don’t think that post traumatic stress disorder or any mental health problems is an excuse for leaving the fold. No matter if they are shunned or not given the help they need.

    Az: I dont think there is anyone that doesnt realize the full extent of the crisis. Recognizing it as a crisis and actually solving it do NOT go hand and hand. People understand and they still have to be willing to look the other way for themselves. If you are a girl, my question was answered, i would also take it very personally if it was me in the center.

    Besides didn’t you ever hear of the saying ‘ Where there is hope there is life’?

    Bodek: Sorry to disappoint you but chassidish people just have more normal expectations.

    Regarding the support; 2-3 years is considered wonderful because it is NOT the womens job to support the family.

    Bodek – does your father learn full time? And if he does, how are your sisters being supported? We cant live on ten generations of being supported coz that great-great-great-great granfather is buried already.

    Does Having a degree guarantee you a job forever?

    boredjewish: How many resumes did you get like that ? Some girls are just a little…and so are some boys…

    My mil had a mother that drove her nuts to get her son engaged. She arranged a date for him, he did not stop chattering on his cell the entire time, and the parents wonder why he is still not engaged. My mil told this mother when your son will have a little more interest in the girls he is dating she will red him more shidduchim. This boy is 26 years old and has been dating for 4 yrs . Such a waste

    Boredjewishguy do you think saying no to a date that talks on the cellphone all the time is wrong? I dont think so…

    And I dont think girls say no to the height of the boy.

    sorry volvie; I wanted to edit it but deleted it by mistake. I dont think its a big deal to marry someone 4-5 years younger.

    I think it was rabbi shamshon raphael Hirsch that said in order for him to do his lifes work he needed to marry a girl that was older than him.

    My mil does shidduchim for Litvish, chassidish, heimish, sefardish Etc. She sayd chassidish shidduchim are by far the easiest. she never has to mediate between the two sides. shidduchim flow very smoothly, usually its either a yes or a no.

    Bodek; Sorry you misunderstood, but the fact is that if a shidduch doesn’t go through the parties are very rude to the shadchanim. As if its their fault. Not even a thank you, usually.

    My mil is a Professional in a different career besides being a shadchan. She is an extremely busy women, and still listen to all the crank calls.

    The recent most upsetting shidduch that she made was; girls parents promised 10,000.00 if she got her engaged. This girl had massive problems. She worked days to get this girl engaged, when she finally did the Girls parents paid her 2000.00. And its not like they dont have money, these people are loaded. My Mil was very upset about it. Dont promise if you dont feel like paying. End story is they ended up getting divorced boy and girl had to many problems to live together. Dear mil still feels guilty about it.

    I like the new system. I never used to post, by the time it got through ten others have posted and it did not make sense.. The internet is not a place where you should take anything to heart. If You feel that you are too sensitive, the internet is not for you.

    Twenty Dollars is laughable. She would have given it up long ago..

    Personally, I feel that my mil expends way too much effort on every shidduch. People are sooo desperate they drive her bananas. Every day she comes home to a minimum of ten messages from people calling to beg her to find them a shidduch. And aside from that she has to act as a counsler, physcologist, advisor and what not… But when it comes to paying, I dont think people realize the effort.

    You’re right about that one AZ. My mother-in-law is a very popular shadchan. She never demands and is almost always happy with the amount people pay her. The only time that she feels that she is underpaid is when the party promises her an amount and does not pay.

    The answer is that Hashem Likes us soo much that he gives us a wake up call every so often. a call that doesn’t directly affect us, but he wants we should realize that yes its we that need to do Tshuva. If this would happen in Germany or Russia a lot more yidden would be affected directly.

    That is the defined problem with the land of Israel, We forget we are in galus, we feel comfortable with the fact that the UN proclaimed it a land for jews… ha, how riduclous could our thoughts be? And yes as long as we are in Galus we need to endure so we could feel Hashems pain.

    There is no place to go that we will feel safe until moshiach comes.

    Of course you should bring it. If you see the girl your dating is dull, uninteresting or mind-numbing, its a real lifesaver. start blabbering on your phone and she’ll be the one saying no.
