Shidduch Resume: 5ft 4, 110lbs, 34:24:35

I haven’t posted quite so many shidduch resumes on this site, because most people have only started to think beyond the pale of shidduch websites, asking their friends and facebook stalking. Most of the shidduch resumes I have posted are of girls. If you have a shidduch resume, it can be, in fact I prefer that it be funny – please send it over to frumsatire@gmail.com please note that the picture is just for reference, as the girl would like to remain anonymous.

This is short, sweet,sincereand to the point. I’m already fed up of shadchanim telling me that being a ger means I have to date a guy with rabies and a club foot.

Age: 23
FFB/BT?: Giyoret
Location: British by birth, live in New York but will be in London soon. Will settle in and hear from guys either country.
Educated: Graduate
Work: High School teacher, which I genuinely enjoy and some cheder teaching too.
Religious level: I guess most people would say MO Machmir. Orthodox for sure, shomer negiah and all that good stuff but still in touch with the real world.
Shabbos/Kashrut: Obviously (cholov yisrael at home)
Cover Hair: Goes without saying?
Mikveh: See previous question.
Looking for: Male, Jewish, Straight, Normal?? Or more seriously, frum (fairly open with the spectrum), working but at least some effort to learn and most importantly can make me laugh. If you like Heshy’s blog tho I figure that’s a good sign. Also if you’re hot [and over 5′ 7] that helps too.
And, from Heshy’s blog I know that guys like to know about the looks so I’ll give you the (tongue-in-cheek) ‘essentials’: 5ft 4, 110lbs, 34:24:35

Thanks Hesh. If you could not post my email but forward me replies, I’d begrateful. Tried to make it a bit anonymous as I figure quite a few people I know read your blog too.

    Is she a 34b or 34c? makes a huge difference.

    • Someone December 21, 2011, 7:49 AM

      The 34 here refers to her bust size. In bra sizes, it refers to the rib cage size. The letter comes from the difference between bust and rib cage.

      • Michael K December 21, 2011, 11:34 AM

        Thanks for the information I didn’t need 🙂

        • Michaltastik December 21, 2011, 7:08 PM

          small boobs at 34 inches. I’m 40.5 inches and I’m a 36D (my rib cage is bigger than her “rack.”)

          • Me December 22, 2011, 5:46 AM

            sweetie, get over yourself.

            • Michaltastik December 26, 2011, 5:56 PM

              Feeling jealous, are we?

          • Me December 22, 2011, 5:51 AM

            Pretty much everyone on here is just having a joke. Calm down, put your tits away and cut the nasty.

          • Holmes December 22, 2011, 11:18 PM

            If any part of a woman’s body measure 40.5 inches, it’s probably not what most shadchans would call a “meilah.”

            • Michaltastik December 26, 2011, 5:52 PM

              What a meilah?

              • Holmes December 27, 2011, 9:07 AM

                A positive attribute, in Yiddish.

                • Michaltastik December 27, 2011, 5:34 PM

                  Well, shadchans are women and the women they think are so great, men don’t want. This is what men care about: looks. Men call women shallow but really they are the shallow ones.

                  • Holmes December 28, 2011, 3:19 PM

                    Respectfully, you are the one who raised the issue of OP’s looks, turning this into a competition between her and you, why I have no idea. I merely pointed out that from an objective standpoint, 40 1/2 inches is not a great measurement to have for a bust, waist, hips or height.

                    • Michaltastik January 4, 2012, 2:25 PM

                      No, she raised it when decided to post her measurements on here.

                  • Alter Cocker March 8, 2012, 1:44 PM

                    men and women are both generally fairly shallow. She’s posting her stuff because it’s her shidduch resume. What’s your excuse?

                    • Michael Makovi June 21, 2012, 8:51 AM

                      40.5 sounds fine to me. Just saying. Then again, 34 is just dandy too.

                    • Michael Makovi June 21, 2012, 9:03 AM

                      However, Michael K. said something important: “Bra size isnt really that important. Youre measurements isnt really that important either, but you shared those willingly.”

                      Damn straight. I sure as hell wouldn’t be saying anything about a woman’s measurements – not in a million years – unless she started it.

                    • Michael Makovi June 21, 2012, 9:05 AM

                      But actually, forget breasts; waist-to-hip ratio is what’s important. 24:35 means 0.69, which is just about the ideal of 0.7.

                      But again, I stress: “Youre measurements isnt really that important either, but you shared those willingly.”

            • Dan December 26, 2011, 5:59 PM

              My wife is gonna be 40-26-40. Same as Barbie.

              • Michaltastik December 27, 2011, 5:36 PM

                Listen buddy, there was only one Jayne Manson.

    • CM in CH December 21, 2011, 11:38 AM

      Michael, why are you limiting yourself to a C?

      • Michael K December 21, 2011, 11:41 AM

        Not limiting. Just assuming the averages. It’s like asking “are you between 5’4 and 5’7?” Could be higher or lower.

        Some might cry “ba’al tashchis”, but I don’t hold (pardon the pun) by that.

  • anon December 21, 2011, 7:06 AM

    I think that converts do better off in Israel. I know plenty who married, nice, regular guys.

    You didn’t write anything personal about yourself. And as a woman, I don’t get why ALL women write “makes me laugh”, what is he a clown?

    • Michael K December 21, 2011, 7:18 AM

      To paraphrase from Ocean’s Eleven, I think “make me laugh” is code for “don’t make me cry”.

      • Crowin' Cock December 21, 2011, 7:57 AM

        And I though it was code for “make me moan like a wh*re” 🙂

  • Dan December 21, 2011, 7:59 AM

    Definitely good enough for a Stern tefillin date.

    (And just for example Heshy, there is no way in YU’s womens kollel, that I would post that on facebook.)

  • Dave December 21, 2011, 8:14 AM

    Cup size??

    • Anon December 21, 2011, 8:16 AM

      Practice level?

    • Crowin' Cock December 21, 2011, 8:27 AM

      Cup sizes are adjustable for a few $$$, practice level should be irrelevant as she’s shomer.

      • Anon December 21, 2011, 8:34 AM

        Not sure what you mean by that. I hope she doesn’t think shomer applies after the wedding.

        • Crowin' Cock December 21, 2011, 8:40 AM

          Anon,

          Don’t worry, she should have plenty of time to practice once she’s married, practicing can be lot’s of fun 😉

  • dorot December 21, 2011, 8:40 AM

    well, i am out of the running since i am not a dude. but i hope she finds someone normal who just mentally records the cup size and then shuts the eff up about it.

    • balansen December 21, 2011, 9:12 AM

      Why? What’s your cup size?

    • Michaltastik December 21, 2011, 7:18 PM

      She has about an A cup with those measurements but I’m sure she’ll find one of these “I want TIIIINE-EEE” guys. There sure are enough of them.

  • Me December 21, 2011, 9:02 AM

    LOL thanks dorot. Is my bra size really that important? If so, can we get guys to put their ‘length’ on shidduch resumes please?

    FYI, I converted 6 months ago under an NYC based Beth Din.

    As for those who said I didn’t say anything personal about myself – what would you like to know?

    Yes yes, a man who makes me laugh. I’ve been on dates for a coffee that have been excruciating but walking for hours in the cold round Manhattan has been more fun when the guy Im with has a sense of humour!

    • Crowin' Cock December 21, 2011, 9:14 AM

      Me,

      Guys can always exagerate, you wouldn’t find out until it’s too late if you’re shomer.

      • bratschegirl December 21, 2011, 4:58 PM

        CC,

        Girls can exaggerate too, which you also wouldn’t know if you’re shomer. A little strategic help from Vicky can do miraculous things…

        • Crowin' Cock December 21, 2011, 5:16 PM

          Bratschegirl,

          Possibly, but women would definitely be less likely to do so, and if they wewre dating, it would be a probably be a royal pain to keep trying to stuff a bra. On the other hand, find me one guy besides Howard Stern that would underestimate the size of his …

          • Michaltastik December 21, 2011, 7:21 PM

            Actually, flat girls don’t stuff anymore, it’s 2011. They wear water bras. They have been for over 10 years. They look more real.

            • Crowin' Cock December 21, 2011, 7:29 PM

              Michal,

              That’s intersesting. I’m married for a lot longer than that, guess I’m not in the know anymore.

              Water bras wouldn’t do to well up here, they’d freeze up within minutes on a cold day.

              • Michaltastik December 26, 2011, 5:54 PM

                True, my ex-fiance’s sister had one (or more) and that’s how I know about it. That was in Texas so freezing wasn’t an issue.

    • batsheva December 21, 2011, 9:33 AM

      Me,
      I just wrote a fairly long response to several of the commenters, but it didn’t show up (Heshy’s site seems to have an issue with quotation marks that I forgot about). Keep an eye out for it. I addressed all of the points you just addressed in more detail. I think you sound great, BTW. I wish I knew someone for you. I pray that HaShem sends you your b’shert speedily and in a good hour.

      • Michaltastik December 21, 2011, 7:22 PM

        She sounds great based on her measurements? Shit, that’s how guys think.

    • Anon December 21, 2011, 10:37 AM

      “Is my bra size really that important?”

      It’s definitely important for this thread.
      Just spit it out, we won’t make fun of you. (Also say whether they are real, and if not, how much they cost.)

    • OfftheDwannaB December 21, 2011, 10:58 AM

      Youre a bit too frum for me, but you sound like a nice girl. I hope you find a nice boy.

    • Michael K December 21, 2011, 11:18 AM

      Bra size isn’t really that important. You’re measurements isn’t really that important either, but you shared those willingly.

    • anon December 21, 2011, 2:25 PM

      I’m a woman so I’m not really that interested, but I just commented that the “resume” seemed a little bland. As for making you laugh, you will only know that when you meet. Verbal chemistry if you like. A sense of humour is very personal, many people have a sense of humour, but I don’t share it with them. Putting it on your resume will not get you any closer to that. Those excruciating dates of yours may very well think that they are great conversationalists. I know that I’ve been on dates where I was told that they had a great time and I was just being polite. Well, good luck.

      And if you’re looking to meet someone even just a little more refined than many of Heshy’s talkbackers you may want to take off your vital statistics, it brought out the smut brigade in force. Just say 5’4 and slim. That should do it.

      And by the way, Heshy, whatever happened to Mahler? She was a star attraction.

      Just my two cents.

      • Anonymous December 21, 2011, 3:24 PM

        I’d like a hot, frum, cynical, conflicted, brilliant woman. With stats like the OP’s. But even better so that Michaltastik won’t make fun of her.

        FFB only, because I don’t understand why you’d become BT or geyores, if you are cynical like me.

            references to girl’s seminaries in Israel

  • batsheva December 21, 2011, 9:23 AM

    No comments on the resume; she sounds terrific. But I have plenty of comments on the comments.
    1) To all the people obsessing about cup size, guess what? More often than not, it changes after you have a baby. And it can go either way. I have seen women who got huge while nursing, and then after weaning they shrunk down to smaller than they were pre-pregnancy. I’ve also seen them get bigger and stay bigger. I also know women who had to have them removed altogether due to breast cancer. This is not a jdate profile looking for a hookup. It’s a shidduch resume of a very frum young woman looking to get married. Marriage means for life. Have you ever seen the breasts of an 80-year-old woman? If cup size is what you care about, buy yourself a blow-up doll with the cup size of your choice and go to town. As for the person who specifically mentioned cup sizes being adjustable for $$$, I hope this young lady and any other eligible women reading this are smart enough to know that any man who would even hint that you should mutilate yourself for him is not a man worth even considering. Yes, I know this is a humor site, but this is a legit shidduch resume, and your comments are not treating it as such.
    2) To the person who said she didn’t write anything “personal” about herself, here is what I got: I know her height and vital statistics, what she does for a living and that she enjoys her work. I know where she lives and where she’s from, and that she’s open to relocation. I know she is very frum, including shomer negiah, and that she wants a frum, employed man, who makes some effort to learn, preferably attractive, over 5’7″ (She doesn’t need someone who towers over her–I’ve seen women who were 5’4″ and wouldn’t date anyone under 6′), and it’s particularly important that he be able to make her laugh. This tells me that she wants someone who shares her sense of humor. Granted, it’s not a lot of personal information, but for a short resume on someone else’s blog, I think it’s a pretty good amount, and it’s certainly a lot more than not writing “anything.”
    3) To the person who asked why all women write “Makes me laugh”: Don’t you like to laugh? People have a wide variety of senses of humor. What makes some people laugh does not make everyone laugh. Would you really want to spend the rest of your life with someone you couldn’t laugh with, someone who never made you laugh? You can teach a man how to kiss you and touch you, but you can’t teach him how to make you laugh. To me, this is a no-brainer. Once you’re over 70 or 80 sex will be pretty insignificant, but you will still want to hang around with someone who makes you laugh. To the person who said that it’s simply code for “don’t make me cry,” no. It’s not. While not making your spouse cry should be a given, this doesn’t mean that. It means exactly what it says.
    4) I don’t know if converts “do better in Israel,” but I do know plenty of converts who found wonderful frum spouses here in the US. Not all born Jews are close-minded, right Heshy? 😉

    • Heshy Fried December 21, 2011, 10:52 AM

      The problem with having big boobs is that it gets in the way when you go to lift the Torah for hagba – it also sucks for that wedding song when everyone jumps up and down and don’t get me started on when you have to put your boobs on the table when you’re having a bite to eat. I’m not talking about my own less than a cup size of course.

      • Michael K December 21, 2011, 11:20 AM

        It’s also a problem when you’re not in a mixed-swimming pool, or at the mikvah.

    • Michael K December 21, 2011, 11:23 AM

      1) More often than not, her 34-25-25 will *also* change after she has a baby. What’s your point?
      2) She wrote mostly facts, and nothing truly *personal*.
      3) I think everyone likes to laugh, and that’s the point: She wrote what everyone else writes. It’s on the trite side.
      4) I agree 100%. Well said.

      • CM in CH December 21, 2011, 11:43 AM

        Michael, I’m not sure why you think it only changes after she has a baby. Where’s your guarantee that you’re not going to get fat and go bald?

        Shidduch resumes are to open the possibility of a date. She doesn’t have to put person things in the resume, you’re supposed to find that out face-to-face.

        ‘Someone that makes me laugh’ isn’t the same for everybody. Personally I lurve someone that makes me laugh because, sadly, life is going to suck at certain points, and I’d like someone that helps me not take it all too seriously.

        • Michael K December 21, 2011, 11:53 AM

          CM, I know full well there are no guarantees. I was just modeling my question after batsheva’s.

          I hear your point about the resume. I guess that’s valid.

          I know it isn’t the same for everyone, that wasn’t my point.

          • CM in CH December 21, 2011, 12:04 PM

            I’m coming down on you hard today. I should put that in my resume, ‘sensitive at times’.

            • Michael K December 21, 2011, 12:13 PM

              ‘s okay, I can take it. 😉 Just watch your phraseology: Coming down on me hard can be interpreted in more than one way, especially in this conversation.

    • Crowin' Cock December 21, 2011, 11:30 AM

      Batsheva,

      I would hardly consider implants as “self mutilation”. Millions of women happily dish out thousands of $$$ for bigger knockers, and are quite happy with their results. And the vast majority do it for themselves, not their husbands (they just foot the bill).

      • CM in CH December 21, 2011, 11:43 AM

        Cock, are you talking about frum women or shiksas?

        • Crowin' Cock December 21, 2011, 11:56 AM

          I’m talking about women in general, but I know modern Orthodox women that had them done after they decided to stop having kids.
          One of them was fed up having her tiny ones shrink even more after each baby. I know call her “dolly” whenever I see her 🙂 🙂 🙂

      • batsheva December 21, 2011, 12:59 PM

        I’m pretty sure that having someone cut into your body for no medical benefit, and possible damage (you should see the horror stories of boob jobs gone bad) and place an unnecessary and potentially dangerous foreign object permanently in your body constitutes self-mutilation. The fact that millions of women pay big $ to do it is wholly irrelevant. It is only a testament to the horrible things our breast-obsessed culture does to women’s self-esteem.

        • Dan December 21, 2011, 1:08 PM

          On the contrary, it gives them the ability to gain self esteem by just paying for it, and getting a little outpatient procedure.

          Back in the old days, you would need to milk like 10,000 cows to get that self esteem.

    • anon December 21, 2011, 2:35 PM

      1. The comment about converts doing better is a result of reading heshy’s posts and converts themselves complaining how they can’t get set up with normal people. I don’t see it being an issue here at all.
      2. I’m not sure someone very frum and tsnius would put her vital statistics on a shidduch resume. Look what it opened up here. Also look at her response to dorot. Is that tsnius? Not in my book.
      3. I still maintain that there was nothing personal, it was all standard stuff, no interests etc.
      4. As for laughing, the point is why does the guy have to make me laugh, like a stand up. When you meet someone you click with you will naturally laugh together. It’s the “make me” bit that is weird. Sound like “entertain me”. When I go out with a guy he doesn’t have to make me laugh. If we like eachother it will happen naturally.

      • Me December 21, 2011, 2:45 PM

        And by it happening naturally he is, in fact… making you laugh. No? I never said I wanted to date a stand up comedian.

        Reminds me of a line by Joe C z”l (Kid’s Rock’s midget) “I’m a freak hoe call me sick, three foot nine with a ten foot dick”.

    • Michaltastik December 21, 2011, 7:33 PM

      C? What 24C?

      • Dan December 21, 2011, 8:21 PM

        Hmmm, the women are a lot meaner on this thread than the men are.

      • Me December 21, 2011, 10:47 PM

        Er, no. Obviously.

        I’m sure I read on another thread that ur also giyoret who also struggles with dating (excuse if I’ve mixed u up with someone), little bit of support would be nice.

        So this turned into a thread about boobs, numbers and comments rather than the original point. No loss and it’s actually kinda amusing.

  • FFB-OTD-BBO December 21, 2011, 2:01 PM

    The equivalent of her saying “Also if youre hot [and over 5′ 7] that helps too” is us saying “what’s your cup size?” You didn’t mention, though, if you can marry a kohen.

  • Me December 21, 2011, 2:18 PM

    FFB-OTD-BBO … no I didn’t mention if I could marry a kohen, but I did say I’m a giyoret, dumbass.

    • FFB-OTD-BBO December 21, 2011, 7:40 PM

      I didn’t know that halacha. Please forgive me.

  • Me December 21, 2011, 2:33 PM

    I have to say, I sent this to Heshy in seriousness to see if I’d get any replies worth following up but the comments have been entertaining on their own.

    Do you think this is the information I give to all shachanim? No. We’re on frumsatire.net, so I figured I might as well play along with the type of stuff that get’s talked about on here quite often. So what, I gave my measurements, big deal, if a guy meets me he’s gonna see that I’m far from overweight and that I work out three or four times a week. As for cup size, I did consider putting that with the (as I’ve said, tongue-in-cheek) height/weight/measurements but figured it was probably going to be taken as ‘thinks she’s something special, full of herself etc’ rather than ‘kinda funny’ as I had meant it. Let’s be honest, if I hadn’t put anything physical you’d only have asked if I was a whale.

    • Dan December 21, 2011, 5:29 PM

      I think the only way for this thread to progress now is with pictures.
      It can be a neck down shot, so you still are anonymous.
      And it can be a picture of you doing a mitzva, so that we can pretend its not just a beauty show.

      Like, a picture of you shaking a lulav. Umm, no bad idea. Maybe blowing a shofar. Umm, no.
      Well, there has to be some jewish ritual that Heshy hasn’t sxualized.
      How about a picture of you sitting in the back of a bus?

      • Crowin' Cock December 21, 2011, 5:40 PM

        Dan,

        Why not go all out and ask for the mikvah conversion shot, or possibly the video? I believe all mikvah conversions done after 2009 are filmed as proof for the rabbis to ensure the conversion’s validity.

        • Dan December 21, 2011, 5:47 PM

          No, only if you converted through a certain Rabbi T.

          • Crowin' Cock December 21, 2011, 5:53 PM

            Dan,

            I thought that was the dude with the underwater and changing room cams (just as added levels of stringency of course).

    • Michael K December 22, 2011, 7:40 AM

      >> Lets be honest, if I hadnt put anything physical youd only have asked if I was a whale.<<

      Smart girl. I'm impressed!

    • Michaltastik January 4, 2012, 2:33 PM

      Your height and weight would have sufficed. You added measurements. Not smart.

      As for me cutting you some slack, if you are really only 110 lbs and 5-4 you should be able to go to some singles events and find someone. Guys like women who don’t eat.

      • U Avi January 4, 2012, 8:22 PM

        Please stop being so mean, just please. I could really start going off but I am not going to, just please chill out on this girl who seems just alright and is not really deserving of such harsh treatment.

      • Michael Makovi June 21, 2012, 9:00 AM

        “Guys like women who dont eat.”

        Since when? Most guys get uncomfortable when they’re scarfing down Brontosaurus Ribs that stretch across the room, and she’s eating one or maybe two leaves of lettuce. Most guys like it when a woman has an appetite.

  • FFB-OTD-BBO December 21, 2011, 4:06 PM

    Giyores automatically means you can’t marry a kohen?

    • Crowin' Cock December 21, 2011, 4:37 PM

      FFB-OTD,

      Giyores has the technical status of zonah, even though she may not actually be one.

      • Anon December 21, 2011, 5:17 PM

        Why wouldn’t she be one? It can’t be that hard- especially with numbers like that.

        • Crowin' Cock December 21, 2011, 5:27 PM

          Now now, let’s be nice, no need to insult people. Besides, she’d need at least double D’s.

  • FFB-OTD-BBO December 21, 2011, 4:46 PM

    I didn’t know that. It was an honest mistake.

    • Michaltastik December 21, 2011, 7:39 PM

      How the fah kuck does an FFB not know that? And FFBs always act like converts must not know anything and yet over and over again, even the guys there is always so much they don’t know that they should know.

      • Dan December 21, 2011, 8:34 PM

        To be fair, there is a natural bias towards knowing halachos that are relevant to yourself. So a geyores and a kohen would have a reason to know this halacha. But our friend here wouldn’t.

        FFB-OTD-BBO:
        A. There is a reply button on the right side to reply to a post.
        B. What is BBO?

        • FFB-OTD-BBO December 21, 2011, 8:37 PM

          bbo- but back on

          • FFB-OTD-BBO December 21, 2011, 8:41 PM

            I got mixed up because I always think of a ger as starting anew. That and the fact I don’t know why a kohen is allowed to marry an almana but not a gerusha.

  • FFB-OTD-BBO December 21, 2011, 8:26 PM

    It’s called going OTD, mostly because of mean people like you and this bimbo who call people names because they fail to live up to live up your bogus “religious” expectations. She’s a ger so I’m not shocked by her mean response, but you should know better. It’s mean holier than thou frummies like the two of you with your rude remarks that cause people like me to go to off the derech.

  • FFB-OTD-BBO December 21, 2011, 8:27 PM

    G-d forbid somebody doesn’t halacha!!! We’re all going to hell!!

    • Me December 21, 2011, 11:06 PM

      Sorry if you got offended I was being sarcastic. But saying that my ‘mean’ response doesn’t surprise you because I grew up as a non-Jew is ridiculous.

      • FFB-OTD-BBO December 22, 2011, 8:54 AM

        No, I meant your reaction was defensive because you are probably insecure because of it.

        • Me December 22, 2011, 9:01 AM

          Insecure about what exactly?

          I’m very proud to be a giyoret and think my experiences and life as a non-Jew will and do make me a much better person and Jewess. I know considerably more Halacha and Jewish knowledge than the average FFB girl my age and I’ve worked very hard to turn my life around and reach a spiritual and practical goal that many other could not. I have nothing to be insecure about, only proud.

          • Tirtza December 22, 2011, 9:41 AM

            Well said! I am constantly learning from non-FFB’s around me. It is always good to be around Jews enthusiastic in their learning, whatever their background.
            Frum Jews need to look at our prejudices and not perpetuate negativity towards our fellow Jews.
            All the best in Shudduchim!

          • FFB-OTD-BBO December 22, 2011, 10:25 AM

            Insecure about my kohen question. You might have misconstrued it as an insult or being spoken down to by a “frummy”.

            • Me December 22, 2011, 10:33 AM

              Nope. I am a frummy.

            • FFB-OTD-BBO December 22, 2011, 10:33 AM

              Ok. We are going in circles. It was a clear misunderstanding from the start. I hope G-d doesn’t smite me for pissing off a convert. Please MOYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYCHEL me. Also, i just want to make it clear to everyone that just because somebody asks a halachic question that might be obvious to you, it doesn’t mean you have a right to expect that the person asking should know it. I hope people are more considerate in the future. This web-site prides itself on defending the “little guy” against stereotypes and holier than thou frummies. Let’s try to be nice to one another and not cause more sinas chaim (even though a lot of Heshy’s posts deal with the humor in baseless hatred and bull crap inside this religion LOL).

  • Michael K December 22, 2011, 7:12 AM

    Nevermind all that. How’s the afternoon date go?

  • Me December 22, 2011, 8:55 AM

    Not too bad at all, he’s already said he wants to see me again so will c how it goes…

    • Michael K December 22, 2011, 11:09 AM

  • rumple4skin December 22, 2011, 9:47 PM

    does she swallow and is she a screamer?!

  • Seriously?? December 23, 2011, 8:10 AM

    I am an FFB BT (which means I was raised frum, but I always need to grow). And I have to say that between Gerim and BTs, you have 90%+ of the vibrancy and energy in the Jewish velt.

    I used to bemoan the fact that FFBs won’t marry “down”. But it is increasingly clear to me that it is the other way around – those who change themselves to be frum Jews are the better people. And they are certainly more interesting and dynamic!

    So don’t be afraid to marry someone else who has recreated themselves.

  • Shuli December 25, 2011, 3:52 PM

    Why is Michal so unpleasant?

    • Michaltastik December 26, 2011, 6:03 PM

      Too many FFBs pissed me off and I’m a bitter jaded bahwitch?

      • Dan December 26, 2011, 6:11 PM

        I’m also jaded. Too many blonde bombshells were converts, and then I wouldn’t date them.

      • Mike December 28, 2011, 7:45 PM

        So take it out on other converts–WTF?

  • JewAnon December 27, 2011, 10:31 AM

    Honestly, stop being incredibly rude to her, especially Michal. She sounds like a sweet girl, with good middos. Are the measurements the only thing you paid attention to? Where are your morals, people? And Michal, I bet she is in significantly better shape than you are. It’s pathetic that you really care that much.

    • Michaltastik December 27, 2011, 5:30 PM

      She asked Heshy to put up her info and measurements. She gets whatever is the fallout from it. Too bad! As for whether or not she is in better shape than me. Who knows? However, there certainly are skinny girls who are out of shape. Although, if this is the girl that’s an avid swimmer that has guest posted before then you are right, I’m not in good enough shape to swim several miles. Also, note that she has an extremely small bone structure as her bust measurement is smaller than most women’s rib cage. (36 inches is about average size for a rib cage).

      • Mike December 28, 2011, 8:02 PM

        Michal finds it unforgivable that men prefer to be attracted to the women they marry. Apparently make-up is a violation of her human rights as well. She’s her own worst enemy, as her bitterness will increase the odds of her failing to notice a good man when he comes along. This may be a blessing for him.

        • Michaltastik January 4, 2012, 2:38 PM

          I should ruin my skin to have a man who will leave me for a younger woman anyway?

        • Michaltastik January 4, 2012, 2:41 PM

          Oh, by the way, we don’t want men we aren’t attracted to, either so all of you men running after girls 15, 20 or however many years younger, if you don’t go away and we treat you badly (use you) too F-ing bad. You should know we don’t want you.

          • Mike February 29, 2012, 1:40 PM

            You really sound like someone who has been abused in the past. Rather than projecting your psychological problems on random people, who have nothing to do with your personal issues, get help.

  • Holmes December 27, 2011, 2:16 PM

    OP,

    Sorry for all the grief you’ve had here.

    I make the following comment which has nothing to do with religious observance, birth or even Judaism. I would say the same thing if a friend asked me to review a possible ad for a dating website.

    Please don’t say “most importantly can make me laugh.” Frankly, it’s offensive, almost as if you had said “most importantly can support me in the style to which I have become accustomed.”

    Some of the great comedians of today, e.g. Robin Williams, Chris Rock, Billy Crystal, Conan O’Brien, Jay Leno, etc., etc. have all told jokes that have fallen flat. And they have staffs of professional comedy writers to write their material.

    In your case, you’re from another country with sometimes a different idea of humor. You will recall almost a year ago the British comedian Ricky Gervais ticked off a lot of people with his jokes at the Golden Globe awards in Hollywood. I’m sure he wanted to “make them laugh.”

    What you want to say (and what I think others who use the same phrase also want to say) is “most importantly has a good sense of humor.” That conveys an entirely different meaning. Hopefully, you too have a good sense of humor.

    Shidduch dating, as I occasionally observe in my local Starbucks, must be pretty stressful to begin with. Why not make it a wee bit easier? After all, you’re not running an audition for Letterman.

    • Seriously?? December 27, 2011, 2:23 PM

      Hey, Holmes!

      Your point is hidden in poorly-constructed sanctimoniousness. I recommend a remedial writing class, stat.

      • Holmes December 28, 2011, 3:15 PM

        “Seriously??”,

        You don’t know me and I rarely post here so it’s difficult to comprehend why you would attempt to start a pissing contest over a blog post. Unless it’s because you actually either have poor reading comprehension or don’t understand the word “sanctimonious.” Regarding your second post, clearly the point about British v. American sense of humor went right over your head.

        • Seriously?? December 28, 2011, 3:34 PM

          Just for fun, actually. I am frequently amused by how many Jews combine incompetence with a superiority complex. Occasionally I enjoy poking the anthill. People like you bring out my inner butthead.

          BTW, it is “vs” or “vs.” or even just plain old “v”. But “v.” is not proper usage.

          • Holmes December 28, 2011, 6:13 PM

            “Seriously??”,

            It may be your “inner Butthead” (note capitalization) but it’s more likely your outer douchebag. You employ a medical term, “stat”, “textese” like “BTW” and then purport to lecture me on the use of the well-know abbreviation for “versus.” Google “Miranda v. Arizona” for example.

            Incompetence? Stop with the self-centered B.S. and let this be about OP, not you.

            • OTD chick December 30, 2011, 1:44 PM

              Holmes is right about “v.”

    • Seriously?? December 27, 2011, 2:25 PM

      And Rickey Gervais was *perfect* at the Globes. Those who were not the butt of the jokes laughed – and let’s face it, the comedic world needs an audience outside Hollywood.
