Writersoul: Wouldn’t it be better that these social encounters occur in a public place if they are going to happen, which they will. At least it won’t leave the place, we hope. I’d rather not have my kids “hang out” in a park or somewhere else that inappropriate things can happen.April 26, 2013 1:10 am at 1:10 am in reply to: Letter circulated in Brooklyn about Motzei Shabbos hangouts #950754
I didn’t read most of the comments above, but I just have to ask one question. Why would pizza store owners have any responsibility for the socialization that takes place in their place of business? Shouldn’t parents be responsible for where their teenagers are “hanging out”? Responsible parents, for example, could have their teen invite his/her friends to their home for a pizza party, which they can pick up or have delivered. The blame is going on the wrong people here.
How about graphic design…you seem to like art. You don’t need more than a bachelors for that.
I was honestly disturbed to even see this question. As a daughter of people who are deaf I am offended. You obviously don’t realize what a bracha it is that this man has the ability and the knowledge to daven. Leave the man alone and thank G-d during every Tefilla for the gift of hearing.September 6, 2011 6:40 pm at 6:40 pm in reply to: Does Anyone Else Find This Short Story Disturbing? #840710
On a positive note: I’m an “out of towner” living in Flatbush. We recently had our 4th child. The 1st 2 kids were born in NY. We got no meals or offers for help after they were born. We lived in another state when we had the 3rd. We were spoiled with all the help. We moved back to NY a year ago, and when we had this baby, I didn’t expect any help. People from shul that my husband knows made us meals. Mind you, I’ve never met any of the wives. We even got a meal from someone in the shul that my husband met once. We didn’t even know their names! I was pleasantly surprised by this treatment, since we didn’t gave the same experience in the past. Also, in regards to people say “good Shabbos”, I find that more people say it, or at least answer me when I say it first. Less people stare at me trying to figure out if they know me.
Collegegrad: I love it!!
And this my friend is why you are still single! I am 5 feet tall and my husband is 6 feet tall. I usually do not wear heels. They are uncomfortable for me. Maybe she didn’t wear heels because she also thinks they’re uncomfortable. Maybe she’s happy with her height and doesn’t feel the need to look taller. Maybe you didn’t tell her where you were going on your date, and just to be on the safe side, she wore flats. Maybe you were going to be walking a lot. Dressing up for a date does not require heels. A person can still look nice without them. I think you need some maturing if heels is on your list of what you’re looking for in a wife.
I never said I don’t get him to try and quit. He has tried and still tries. It’s not easy for him. I support him in his efforts to try. Of course I care about him. The main topic was should a person say “no” to a shidduch involving a smoker. I was merely pointing out that I refused to judge a person based on that.
I have to say that I’m happily married to a smoker…I don’t condone his smoking. He doesn’t smoke near me or our children (They don’t even know he smokes.)Did I purposely look for a smoker when I was dating? Of course not…would I turn down a potential shidduch? Of course not…If I would have been so quick to judge, I wouldn’t have the life I have now…There are plenty of worse things to look out for in shidduchim.
