Is e dating good for jewish women
It is for her that girls fuss when preparing for a wedding -- plastic surgery, hair blown out, manicures, expensive dresses, high heels (within some boundaries of modesty, surely) -- not so much for the men, no, the young single men will barely get a glimpse of the young single women at these weddings with separate seating.
No, this whole ritual is done for the married women -- for the mere hope that one wigged lady sees her, at the sushi station perhaps, walks over and with a swish of her wand, says, “My God, you’re gorgeous, I know someone perfect for you. She ought to dress a bit more expensive, she can’t afford not to.
As a married woman, I get to see the other side of the dating world these days – that of the ‘matchmaker’ – and wonder what message is being sent to my generation of bright, religiously passionate women.
The yeshiva boy’s date cuts him off and leans forward to the driver, deciding to turn her frustrations into a joke: “Sir, he doesn’t really care about the heels.
You don’t take it to the streets to show the entire world?

It’s my actual choice of attire that he finds inappropriate.
My skirts are too short, it makes him nervous, he won’t even call me by my name, you know how religious boys are...” The driver turns the corner.
