    How long do you think fifty grand will last you? Not long at all…..

    Isn’t he the guy that met Sally?

    intelligent: Bikini is not a four letter word. Neither is birthday suit. Now your comment has me thinking not tzniut thoughts too… 😉

    in reply to: Snoods VS. Sheitels #621626

    There are some wigs that look even better than the wearer’s real hair.

    Some women leave their manners and sensitivities to others’ feelings buried under their three grand wigs.

    ModernLakewoodGuy just keep complimenting your wife and making her feel good about herself. Women whose men make them feel beautiful have healthier self esteems and can handle silly criticisms from other women better than those who don’t.

    in reply to: #620919

    It doesn’t end there either. I get some really obnoxious comments and suggestive remarks from men in the street too. Men who look so religious!!! (I’d insert a shocked emoticon here) Oh, and boy was I surprised to learn that some black and whites dare touch a woman’s body whom they don’t even know. Maybe they think clothes are a barrier…Watch yourselves girls. There are some creeps out there. I’ve learnt to make believe I don’t feel stares and comments. I think it best not to let the jerk know I noticed him so he doesn’t take my eye contact as encouragement for more.

    If Webster wrote the first dictionary, where did he find the words?

    If you wrote a letter, perhaps you bote your tongue?

    Why is “crazy man” an insult, while to insert a comma and say “Crazy, man!” is a compliment?

    Why are a wise man and wise guy opposites?

    Why is abbreviation such a long word?

    Why is dyslexic so hard to spell?

    Why is it so hard to remember how to spell MNEMONIC?

    Why is it that no word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, or purple?

    Why is it that the word “gullible” isn’t in the dictionary?

    Why is it that we recite at a play and play at a recital?

    Why is it that writers write but fingers don’t fing, grocers don’t groce and hammers don’t ham?

    Why is the alphabet in that order? Is it because of that song?

    Why is the plural of goose-geese, and not the plural of moose-meese?

    Crocs are dead ugly. (Sorry Crocs lovers…)

    I doubt they’re not tzniut.

    in reply to: Let’s talk about the Yankees! #620970

    I have no clue but what I do know is… I ? U YANKEES!!! ???


    Summer is almost over for us in the Northern Hemisphere and autumn’s approaching. Even though I’m out of school for a while I still get that butterflies in my stomache feeling every fall, same as I used to get at back-to-school time.

    in reply to: Eating Disorders in the Jewish community #620868

    Not every girl who is a size two or zero is starving herself or anorexic or bulemic…Some girls are blessed with a quick metabolism and/or work out to maintain their figure. I’m sure there are a few tragic cases but please don’t think that all or most thin people starve themselves or vomit to stay thin.

    A size two today is much bigger than it was ten years ago. I have a size four skirt that I got about ten years ago that is smaller than the size twos that I buy today (same brand). The companies are making clothing bigger to make overweight people feel better about themselves and buy their clothing.

    I do hope that any guy or girl suffering from eating disorders get help.

    in reply to: Dating Dilemmas #621222

    I’m not sure what BY type is but I’ll add my 2 cents…

    1) going places like bowling or shooting pool on dates

    I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that as long as you both enjoy bowling and shooting pool.

    2) complimenting guy/girl on clothing (i.e. nice tie , or nice necklace) if Ok what date is it acceptable?

    Depends on the compliment. If a guy uses the adjective “nice” I think that’s pretty kosher. Any date is okay. I’m confused now.

    3) guy walking girl out of car when returning from date

    That’s sweet.

    4) sharing a portion of food when eating out

    As a germaphobe I’d never do that on a date until I got to know and like the guy (and know that he doesn’t have cooties).

    5) Is it ever allowed to be asked to be taken home ?

    If you’re wasting his and your time, please do. Do it in a polite way.

    in reply to: Divorce Crisis #697181

    Wan’t there a divorce post here last week?

    in reply to: Lycra long sleeve shirts #645771

    I know nobody wants to hear this, but: If you’re a guy, don’t look–concentrate on your own woman or whatever. If you’re a girl, don’t wear anything of the sort if you feel that it is not tzanua–don’t worry so much about others, you’ll get worry lines.

    I’ve never heard of “half sleeves”. Do you mean short sleeves?

    in reply to: Women Davening on Train #620499

    I heard a story about a Rabbi, I believe his name was Rabbi Levi Yitzchak from Berdichav (PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I’M WRONG) who was being driven in a horse drawn wagon. Apparently, a wheel broke off from the wagon and the driver proceeded to fix it while saying his prayers. The Rabbi’s fellow passenger didn’t like that and said, “How can this man fix the wheel while praying?” The Rabbi answered him by saying “G-d, look at Your holy people. Even while working on fixing his wheel, this Jew prays to You.”

    Maybe these girls and women are using their commute wisely and instead of looking at others and at all the filth on the subway, they are praying…think about it.

    in reply to: Treatment of teens off the derech #1160027

    I too knew so many troubled teens, guys and girls that lived through a very difficult time period in their life. Some turned to drugs and alcohol and many completely left the religion. Most of these guys and girls are now in their upper twenties and one thing that I have noticed was that in general, the ones that were shown love by their families and knew that they had a home to come home to are the ones that are now normal, functioning adults. I sense from what you wrote that you love your child deeply and understand that she is going through a most difficult time period in her life. Keep doing that. Get her help but make sure she always knows that you love her no matter what and you want her to keep living at home with you. You can’t control how others treat her but at least she’ll know that you only want the best for her. Good luck to you and your daughter and may God bless you both and protect her.

    in reply to: Cultural differences – sepharadim vs ashkenazim #793707

    Sepharadim are very strong in their Yahadut. The people with the most bitachon and emunat chachamim that I have ever come across are Sephardic. The strong ones are just as strong in their observing of Halacha as any strong Ashkenazi Jew.

    Sepharadim had the expulsion of Jews from Spain during the Spanish Inquisition and life was not always perfect for our ancestors in the Arab countries, far from perfect at times, torturous at others. My mother left her country at a very young age as did many other people I know due to dire circumstances. One woman I know was imprisoned in Syria at a very young age and tortured by the guards there. She miraculously survived to tell her story. She’s not the only one. During World War II Sephardic Jews in Europe suffered the same fate as Ashkenazi Jewry. Sephardic Jews in Africa suffered too. Jews in Iran and Yemen had their fair share of suffering too as did Sephardic and Mizrahi Jews in other countries. In Israel, Sephardic Jews were mistreated by their very own brothers. Babies were stolen from Yemenite women and given up for adoption. Don’t forget Sephardic Jewry is in the Diaspora too. {Maybe we just complain less? KIDDING.}

    I don’t think that the flaming back and forth that goes on here over non-halachik or semi-halachik minutae would be anathema to sepharadic culture [sic] as I am sure that there are some Sephardic Jews here who flame the fire too. I do think that there are many here that like to argue Halacha and I don’t mean that in a negative way. I’m sure most mean well…at least I hope they do.

    in reply to: Username #649414

    It’s fixed. 🙂 Thank you. I hated being “somebody”.

    in reply to: parents and cell phones #619860

    OUCH! NOW are you happy. That hurts.

    ” I’ll bet most of his average day is spent dealing with getting the proper funds to put food on YOUR plate and pay for YOUR prust clothing.” This is no way to talk to a 13 year old girl or to any person.

    teeenof13: I didn’t get a chance to see much of my Dad – may he rest in peace – either. He was working all day and when he was home he was busy making business phone calls. When I was your age (gosh that sounds old!) cell phones were a new novelty, more of a luxury so he’d tie up the house phone which upset my family too. Be happy we have cell phones today. 🙂 I did get to bond with my Dad in my own way. I would try to bring up conversations that I thought would interest him any time we did get to have a moment together. Try talking to him about things that would interest the both of you. He’ll see you as an adult and he’ll actually enjoy conversing with you. Some fathers aren’t as nurturing as mothers can be and sometimes they just need a little help in forming or perfecting a relationship with their child. Maybe set a date with him. Tell him you would love it if you could go out, just you and him and you can tell him how you feel. I just want you to know that this does not mean that you are not loved by your Dad.

    in reply to: Daveing with Crocs #620654

    Some people never cease to amaze and amuse me…

    I hate Crocs because I find them unchic (sorry all you Crocs lovers) but do you really think God cares whether a guy or girl is wearing Crocs, Manolos or whatever it is you wear to pray?

    By the way…not every Orthodox guy dresses in white shirt black hat and jacket. I think God loves every sincere person’s prayers no matter how he or she is clothed.

    in reply to: Should pro-freikeit commentors be given a voice? #625884


    Go ahead add my name. I go by Jewess on the main forum but I barely post my thoughts there.

    Just becasuse you don’t agree with another’s point of view does not make him or her “pro-freikeit” which I believe to mean non religious.

    My point was that writing people’s names to ridicule them because you can’t see eye to eye with them lowers your (or the author’s) own level of religiousness. In addition to that I don’t think God looks nicely upon that especially in the “Three Weeks” when we are supposed to try to better OURSELVES and to guard our toungue even more.

    in reply to: Tznius: a woman’s issue #623784


    My insecurities are not your issue. From that other post that got deleted you seem to be one who cannot control his thoughts. There was a major lack of tzniut there.

    in reply to: Tznius: a woman’s issue #623781

    Any man who thinks that a woman is dressing a certain way to tease men is so ridiculously wrong. Honestly, we dress for other women. There is a competition to look good among women and I promise you that nobody is trying to tease You or You or You.

    in reply to: Should pro-freikeit commentors be given a voice? #625864

    How “frum” of you to post a comment so rich in ahavat yisrael.

    in reply to: Why Yidden are the BEST! #1166240

    Dr. Pepper, if you want to give me a title of importance I’ll take Rabbanit. Thank you.

    Seriously now, I’m sorry for calling out your mistake. It just struck me as a funny comment. Again, I do apologize. I’m sure you meant God and I could have easily made the same mistake.

    in reply to: Why Yidden are the BEST! #1166231

    Dr. Pepper, we pray to a God, not a person!

    I think nameless’s answer says it all.

    in reply to: Latte Please #619523

    josephf, I was looking for a permanent link. Thank you.

    Thank you yweditor. That’s what I was looking for.
