Post getting to know you
on: April 11, 2013, 8:29 PM

hey everyone! i'm pretty new to this site, although, i have posted quite a few times already. one thing that keeps popping into my mind is that i'd really like to know a little about the girls on here. i know there is a benefit to being anonymous, but we can share things that won't necessarily take away our "masks". i mean, don't say where you live, but like how many siblings you have, things you like to do...whatever you could think of just so we get a better idea of what ur about? I'm not gonna start, just in case there is already another topic like this- if there is, can someone plz direct me to it? if there isn't and we all agree to this, then we'll begin!

You can update your profile info so that if someone is interested in knowing more about you, they can click on your name next to any post you've submitted and learn more about you.

Wow, iThink. I really like your outline, if i could call it that. i think i'll follow suit:

Location: i'll just say somewhere in the midwest

Family:I'm the oldest of 3. i have a sister under me, and then a brother

Occupation: teacher's assistant (and loving it!!!)

Hobbies/interests: i love singing and listening to music. i love writing, i wish i had time to do it more often. oh, and my main hobby is...shopping!

Pet peeves: first of all, i can't stand when ppl act out in class. my class had many girls, who although they were each individually very sweet nice girls, they felt teachers were target material for their antics- thru 12th grade. that got me very annoyed. secondly, when shadchanim tell ppl that 10% of girls will never get married, and that girls shouldn't talk to them until they lose weight. also the stupid questions ppl ask regarding shidduchim. that drives me up the wall...

Favorite quote:I also don't know how I could choose one. maybe we should start a separate quotes thread with all of our favorites... but if i had to choose..."Life is like a piano. There are black days and there are white days, but if you know how to play, it makes a beautiful melody"

Favorite Author:that would be Meir Uri Gottesman (the harp, deep blue, morning star)

Favorite store:I'm with iThink on that one! all my makeup is from sephora, and my clothes are from lord and taylor, but i must add new york and company!!!!!!

What I do for fun:shop with mom and sis, or with friends. listen to music, or just chill with family by playing a good game

Favorite Song: Well, all my family and friends could tell you that I have about a million. seriously, when i say a song is my favorite, they say "we know, just tell us which ones you don't like- u'll save your words..."

Favorite Singer(s):Shwekey, shloimy daskal, Michoel Pruzansky, Boruch Levine

Favorite Yom Tov:Simchas Torah!!!

Ok; fine... If you insist... Lol
So here's my "profile" (is this just me or is this much more fun; and a better way to get to know a person thena. Shidduch resume?)

Location: good ole' New York...
Family: I am #6 of 8 (ki"H)
Occupation: "administrative assistant" or "office manager" (whichever sounds cooler... Lol) in a real estate office
School: college! Not gonna say which- cuz that would give me a way a little- but let's just say NOT TOURO!
Hobbies/Interests: doing different types of puzzles (mostly on my computer), reading, and doodling (yes- doodling is a hobby not just a mindless activity); and last but not least... Voicing my opinion on Jewish anonymous public forums
Pet peeves: married siblings that don't take car of their own kids when they come visit; girls being treated like a piece of meat in the so called "market"; the fact that the shidduch crisis is NOT a real crisis if everyone would stop tarting it and behaving as such- (which in my opinion less stress over this crisis would prevent the divorce and broken engagement crisis from spreading) and of course another pet peeve is people who go into random rants while in middle of what would have been a perfectly normal profile (sorry- yes I annoy myself- can't be helped... Lol)
Worst subject: MATH (it was a mutual dislike)
Favorite book: (wow this is a hard one... I read a lot) if I had to pick a Jewish book it would be: the double life of Chani Greenberg! It legit had me bawling while I was supposed to be studying for finals back in hs at like 3 in the morning...
Favorite author: again- if I had to pick a Jewish one- it would be yair weinstock... Just cuz I haven't read that many others; not Jewish- hands down agatha christy! And a lot of other really great authors...
Favorite song: cry no more, and you raise me up: shewkey. And anything by Baruch Levine... (Especially touched by a niggin)
Favorite singer: Baruch Levine, Abe Rotenberg, Gershin Veroba, akapella, maccabeats...
Favorite store: forever21!! And Charlotte Russe, XSRE, Nine West and dsw
Favorite website: games.com, yeshiva world, and only simchas
Favorite Apps: Candy Crush!! (Anyone else obsessed with the new update?!?), what's app, flow free (and all 5 other versions) Instagram, and LogoQuiz...
Favorite quote: "G-d only grows things until they are perfect" (for all is wonderful "fun-sized" shorties out there)
Favorite item of clothing: shoes/bag

Hi,
So I'm new here (on this site, and literally new in shidduchim)
First I'll explain my username: shidduchim so far has been more "waiting" than "dating"
I waited for my sis for two years... she, my parents, and our rav have finally agreed that it's time for me to stop waiting and start dating... so i'm "on the market" as they say... but still waiting!!
It's frustrating cuz for the last two years, people have been asking me for my resume cuz they thought they might have someone... and now that I sent it to them and told them I was ready to listen to suggestions, the phone lines are silent! Everything in the right time....
anyway...
I live in NY, I teach cute little girls, and I love to write!
Looking forward to getting to know you all, but hope that we only fit the membership criteria for a short time (AKA single!)
may we share in only simchos!

pray today

I was just laughing really hard and got back up and tried to forget it happened. It was during miniature golf-I was standing on an uneven ledge with heeled boots. I was laughing so hard at something funny he said that I lost my balance! Fell flat on the floor backwards and was laughing even harder lol but luckily he was very nice about it.

Hi, I really love this website. I am not new to dating and I have been through a very difficult and sort of traumatizing dating experience and even though a long time has passed since this happened to me, I still think about it all the time and it has affected many areas of my life a lot. I feel that if I am able to help other people who are going through difficult dating experiences then everything that I went through will be worth it for me and I will feel that my suffering has more meaning. So please if anyone here is ever going through a hard time in life whether it's with dating or anything else that's not even related to dating then please message me and we can communicate through anonymous e-mail accounts. I will try to log on once in a while to this account to see if anyone here messages me.

Getmeadate thanks! A shadchan redt it. Its not my first year in shidduchim so im really excited to finally be actually going out 😀 (I only went out with about 4 boys in the past few years... so I'm a little nervous too or should I say a lot. : ) I'm so happy about this website because Id like to but i don't want to have a pow wow with my friends about my dating life because something that's hidden is blessed and I'll take all the blessings I can get! So here I can talk (without giving too much details) and get feedback without saying who I am. So its great 🙂

basmelech- I TOTALLY know how you feel. I get the same way, regardless if I wasn't so interested or not. I still cry. I ALWAYS get my hopes up, and as much as I know I shouldn't.. I do. And I feel you about hardly any dates. I hardly get any as well. AND AMEN to your bracha! 🙂
