It’s A Boy’s World, You Know

Teens-101912

So what if he has no masculinity, and you quiver as much as you’d dread
The mere thought of someone thinking of you together, let alone the shidduch actually redt.
So what if he tells you a 19 year old is inherently better than someone older
And makes you feel worthless on dates, while constantly looking over his shoulder.

You still should feel privileged that he wants you, because you’re living in a crisis
And every girl in this wicked world has got to make some sacrifices,
Or else she’ll wind up an old maid like the many that exist
Without a ring ever placed on her finger, or an engagement bracelet on her wrist.

I’ll have to accept things the way they are, or I’ll never become a wife
So I better get used the fact, and grow up, because that’s a girl’s lot in life.

    So true!

  2. L'via Weisinger says:

    wow. the pain is raw and hard to fathom. but this is reality these days. who created these monsters who call themselves eligible boys? who are their fathers? have they no shame?

  3. Rachel Furman Stern says:

    And it is worse for older women like myself who find themselves single. The men who are available tend to so full of themselves. They think they are G-d's gift to women – they may be fat, stupid, poor, ugly, poorly dressed, exhibit poor hygiene — but they expect to marry a thin, beautiful, YOUNG woman!! (with money!)

  4. Rachel Furman Stern says:

    And they are in their 50's and 60's and SAY they believe that the mitzvah of "p'ru u'r'vu" applies to them (their excuse for wanting to marry a YOUNG woman)!

  5. Thats such a sad life. What can these girls look forward too. It was much different when we went out&better when our parents did. Girls did not think so lowly of themselves&made to feel that they should marry anyone who will take them. Please Men/boys Change Your Attitudes, Grow Up. Be A Man. Parents of these boys……shame on you! Teach them to be mentsches, respect, respect!

There is a point that many parenting books miss: children do more for us than we do for them.

Brigitte was a nine-year-old girl when Islamic militants launched an assault on a Lebanese military base and destroyed her home.

Purim is a fantastic time for fantasies, so I hope you won’t mind my fantasizing about how easy life would be if kids would prefer healthy cuisine over sweets. Imagine waking up to the call of “Mommy, when will my oatmeal be ready?”… As you rush to ladle out the hot unsweetened cereal, you rub […]

One should not give the money before Purim morning or after sunset.

The mishloach manos of times gone by were sometimes simple and sometimes elaborate, but the main focus was on the preparation of the delicious food they contained.

One of the earliest special Purims we have on record was celebrated by the Jews of Granada and Shmuel HaNagid, the eleventh-century rav, poet, soldier and statesman, and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain.

Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.

I want to have a wife and children in the natural way. I believe that is Hashem’s plan.

I hear a beat,
I know the sound
I feel a skip,
One that I’m used to
I see a picture,
But this one is new
I cry of pain,
Because I know this is real.

Taking the words from my mouth,
Twisting them, stretching them, turning them round and round,
Negating their true meaning, as it was meant to be heard,
You hear what you want without really listening.

A poem about living with Asperger’s Syndrome.

Greetings to all, my name is Nachalah, I am a 24-year-old student. I am studying communications and graphic designing at Sapir College… Sapir College in Southern Israel is under fire, situated near Sderot and the surrounding Kibbutzim, where the bravest children in the world live.

It was the mid ‘60s and I was living with my mother and brother in public housing on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. We moved there from Brooklyn a decade earlier to be near my mother’s family when my father died suddenly of a stroke.

You’ve gotta settle, stop being so choosy, it’s a boy’s world after all
And you’re just one of the millions who think their worth something, have the gall.
You’ve got to start looking better, so that you’ll be noticed when you walk through town
And perhaps you can lose a few pounds too, so we can pull your resume dress size down.

Turbulence.
There is
Turbulence
Up here.
In the air.
