Solely In Black and White: No, What do you Want to do?

No, What do you Want to do?



I just realized how ungracious it was of me not offer you a choice of topics to discuss; after all this a back and forth, and thus a form of conversation. Although I have a slew of post ideas, of which I hope many interesting ones will be posted in the near future, is there any particular topic or post style that you, the collective readership, would like me to write about?

  1. Weight and shidduchim.
    Skinny/curvy/average/fat people :D

  3. @Sefardi Gal:
    Okay, I think that’s been blogged about before, but I can give it a post.

    @tembow:
    Hmm… that’s quite broad; I’m interested in way too many things, and of those many are not post worthy, at least not on this blog ;-) … Are you looking for anything in particular?

  4. SiBW - of course it's been blogged about before! But it's aways interesting to know what preferences certain men do and don't have.
    My friend's uncle once told my friend that one of the best looking, smartest guys at his yeshiva was extremely attracted to (I don't know how severe, if at all) overweight girls. He married one in the end.

  6. well i was actually thinking about this topic, is it easier to be a "good boy" or a "good girl"ive heard arguments for both sides..

  7. Funny- I've never heard the argument that it's easier to be a better boy. How do you prove that one?

  8. Dont know how you prove it, but i think it would be an interesting debate to have no? I think it would be facsinating too see people's opinions.

  9. @tembow:
    Probably not, but I’ll consider it.

    @aminspiration and SJQ:
    Okay, sounds like a good idea. I don’t know if I can prove it per se, but I can try to make a logical argument to prove my case.

  10. I personally think it's harder to be a good guy.

    A good girl:
    1. Is a mentsch.
    2. Has some kind of paying job.

    A good guy:
    1. Is a mentsch.
    2. Has some kind of paying job.
    3. Learns Torah.

    If my math is correct, this is the cause of the "shidduch crisis."
    Because of the qualifications, there are only 2/3 as many good guys as there are good girls. Hence, 1/3 of good girls don't have good guys to match.

    Of course it's all up to Hashem and none of this is actually true, so if I were a good girl (or even a good guy) I wouldn't worry.

  11. well i guess the discussion could include what are the makings of said good girl and boy and then whoever has the longer list wins..:p

  12. SJQ, well said. It totally is harder to be a good guy...that's why they are so rare.

  13. SJQ, you forgot to add shomer(et) negia to both sides and a minyan attender.

  14. can mess around till they go away to yeshiva and once they come back " flipped out" all that past stuff doesn't matter but if a girl messes up even once before sem doesn't matter how good she is now- her past will always haunt her!
    Plus guys get away with doing stuff that if girls did wud be considered bad for shidduchim...

  15. Oops- first word of that whole spiel was "guys"...
