Post Yeshivish!!!??? SPIN OFF

Here is just a spin off to see what you think because SOOOO many people say different things. I can't take it when I get a call about a friend of mine and the boy's mother asks "IS SHE YESHIVISH?" I once told a boys mother; Yeshivish is a guy who drives cool cars, and smokes, do you want to know if she will be ok with that? The mother screamed and hung up the phone. Now I am more careful to stay away from this dangerous "Yeshivish question!''

WHAT DO YOU CALL YESHIVISH? GIVE AN EXAMPLE.

Well i tell the mother, "the word yeshivish means something else to everyone so you tell me what yeshivish means and i'll tell you if she fits that description :)"
and guess what? it ALWAYS works!!

First of all, "labeling is disabling." A label is just your perception of someone, so it may not be very accurate; whose measuring stick are you using?? Second of all, why do we have a need to "box" people? I understand that it's easier to understand who someone might be (if you're looking into them for a shidduch) if you have a neatly packaged description, but people are not labels, or even eloquently phrased paragraphs. Labels, especially this one, is very subjective. I have discussed this with many many people (from friends to coworkers to guys on dates) and I have probably just as many perceptions of what it means.

Basically what I said above, but the abridged version and less preachy I guess. Meaning, I say that it's highly subjective I can't answer that question because what they think "yeshivish" is, is not necessarily what I think it is. Plus, it'd just be what I think of the girl, and my opinion is not highest ranking here because the boy's mother (or whomever) doesn't know me. (If she does, then that's a different story.) I would ask her to be more specific, like what exactly does she want to know...
