  1. Avraham says:

    Part of the blame for the “shidduch crisis” belongs to the rebbeim. When I was dating (early 70’s), there were mixers, house parties and other low-pressure ways for couples to meet. A couple met at our wedding. Now, mixed seating at weddings is considered pritsus (sp), so my friends never would have had a chance to meet.

    Shadchanim can do a good job but the average ethics level is right up there with lawyers and used car salesmen.

    Until the rebbeim loosen up, start caring about singles and allow people to meet naturally, the shidduch cris with with us forever.
