Why Dating is Bad for Your Character

somethings that's been cooking in the back of my mind

All the Horrible Midot that Dating Leads to:

  1. Judging: Sometimes people have a bad day, sometimes people have a bad date, the two tend to coincide.
  2. Skepticism: three words " The Shadchan says....."
  3. Unspoken Expectations: So, so many, I never realized that I wanted a husband who was honest, funny, learned and educated (in all the nuances that those carry), brilliant, socailly adept, outgoing, kind, and not to mention at least six foot.
  4. Paranoia: There are only three girls in my class not yet married..... [twitch, twitch]
  5. Selfishness: Why is it that a relationship that is supposed to be all about giving is predicated on a discussion, " So, nu, what do YOU want?"
    1. Self-absorbed: when you're single, there is the horrible tendancy of your life and your conversation to revolve around dating..... "but enough about what I think about this guy, what do you think?"
Apologies for not updating this after shabbos and thanks for your paitence, I was being a good best friend.

Addendum: These are not reasons to refuse to date, but like all medicene, dating should definitely coming with a list of possible side effects. ;)


  • One that learns all day, and earns a six figur sum.
    One that is worldly and educated but has never stepped foot outside the Beis Medrash.
    Always has time for the community and doing chessed and always having time for his family and taking them on trips.
    There are many things that we all say we are looking for in a spouse but in practice can never all co-exist.
    There is a lot to say about this, so I may continue with it myself.
    Have a shvua tov.

  • From your blog it would appear that you deserve what you expect, and I am not being sarcastic.Keep on looking and don't compromise (well, maybe you should on the six feet ;-) . Hatzlacha!
