Gumball: Why, that’s cute! Were you there when she was nearly crying that she doesn’t want to go on the swings? (you were singing to her “Liba, Liba Liba” from NYBC libi – I thought that was really cute!) My friend and I were laughing our heads off! And mazel tov. Glad to hear she’s engaged!October 10, 2011 12:29 am at 12:29 am in reply to: hair covering and married women #816447
happiest: No problem.
Sam2: I’m not a posek. But I assume it’s assur for a woman to look attractive either way. Whether it’s tight clothing, short sleeves or long hair. Why do most girls wear their hair shorter? I guess because it’s more tznius. So why is it okay to wear a long attractive sheitel?October 10, 2011 12:03 am at 12:03 am in reply to: Girl's camps #816242
hey, gumball, was Liba your head counselor? Don’t worry, I’m not a bnoser, but was also at Dorney Park this year…were you?October 9, 2011 11:55 pm at 11:55 pm in reply to: hair covering and married women #816443
Happiest: If you don’t cover the ears, theare’s about an inch of hair sticking out from the sides.
btw, what IS the point in wearing long sheitals that look just like hair? Ironically, I find that girls wear shoulder length hair until after marriage when it’s suddenly ok to wear long (and I mean LONG) sheitals. Just wondering…What’s the hetter (I thought it’s worse for a married woman to wear her hair in an attractive way)?October 2, 2011 11:18 pm at 11:18 pm in reply to: Fasting!!!!! #883118
giggle girl: I’m chassish, and I didn’t either fast. ???? ???? ??? ????, huh?:)September 27, 2011 8:13 pm at 8:13 pm in reply to: Is the chassidish way better? #1035231
Thank you, gavra_at_work and a mamin. I really appreciate your kind words.September 26, 2011 11:58 pm at 11:58 pm in reply to: Is the chassidish way better? #1035204
smartcookie: You’re right. Thank you.
squeak: He doesn’t attend a “tisch” (we belong to a chassidus, but we don’t really have a “rebbe” but rather a rav)
stamagoy: You’re right about that. But I do discuss it with my mother not only in here.
luv2hack: There’s nothing about HIM that’s really bothering me. It’s just that sometimes I feel a bit unsafe, y’know. Either way, there’s no way I can do that. My and his parents will think I’m either nuts or OTD, lol.
Feif: How do you know? Just curious.September 26, 2011 9:32 pm at 9:32 pm in reply to: Is the chassidish way better? #1035199
BTW, I forgot to add that I don’t have contact with any men besides for my immediate family. (I don’t even have friendly discussions with my brothers in law)September 26, 2011 7:46 pm at 7:46 pm in reply to: Is the chassidish way better? #1035194
Thanks to all who replied. I’m sorry I don’t have the time to address everyone personally.
I did tell my mother that I feel a bit uneasy. She said what some of you said, that you knew your soul mates when dating as well as I know my chosson now. (Which was what I wanted to know…Is that true?)
My parents did a LOT of research, and I also told them to ask for specific things (I didn’t want to meet him before I was certain about some things).
smartcookie: My siblings got married with this method too. But one of them divorced (she’s happily married now, b”H). Just because they did extensive research does not mean (I sure hope it does!) I’ll have a great marriage.
MDG: The mechutanim will think I’m VERY odd and strange if I ask to spend some time with him now (never mind my parents…).
Feif Un: As the sibling of a divorcee, I beg to differ. A)It’s not taboo. B)Who told you that happy marriage rate is lower? Did you ever make a poll?
ill_ be_ strong, and a mamin: Thank you so much for your kind words.
mytake: Everything just happened so fast. After 20 min. my father knocked on the door and asked if we’d like to end it here, or continue talking. He shrugged, and it looked like he wanted to end it there, so I felt uncomfortable saying otherwise. Also, I tried looking for a reason to say no or at least think about it, or meet again, but I couldn’t.
Look, I’m happy and truly excited. But sometimes, I just feel so little and confused…whatever. Sorry for going on like this.
