The Deception of a Crisis

01 Jan

I’m curious if this “law” is a phenomena exclusive to the Jewish Shidduch Dating system.


If a girl needs to lose 2 pounds quickly, just get her a date.


And if she needs to lose more weight, give her 3.


This works for up to 15 pounds.


Truth be told, I think this is the real source and reason why people keep crying “SHIDDUCH CRISIS!!!” in the streets.


There is no shidduch crisis.


The same amount of girls are getting married to the same amount of boys. They are actually getting married to each other! (at least that’s what my complex sociological calculations told me, although in today’s day, I may have reconsider). So there isn’t a shidduch crisis, but a dating crisis, that I will concede.


The problem with there being a dating crisis is that girls are missing out on a great quick fix for weight loss and that is just a shanda!

    what is there to be nervous about, i never lost weight because of dating……the only crisis is that people have crazy ideas of what they” deserve” and wont “settle” for something that is really right for them……..people just have to look at themselves in the mirror and realize that there really not as great as they think or want to be.

    How DOES that happen…..? That people from their engagement to their wedding lose so much weight?!?!?! Whenever i ask I get the same answer “I’m busy…don’t have time to eat….” Well I’m busy too, and I find plenty of time!!!
