Tips dating jewish women
Some people blame ‘being picky’ for the fact they’re perpetually single.
Tell them that your efforts to improve the situation involve locating nearby Jews online and you’re met with the judgmental collective headshake that you’ve had to resort to the Internet to find a life partner - even God cannot help you now.
I’m just a nice Jewish girl looking for a nice Jewish guy. My mother wouldn’t murder me were I to ‘marry out’ but her heart would be so decimated by the nuclear bombdrop of a wedding planned without kosher catering that I’d probably wind up shooting myself in the face anyway.
It would be ideal were I to bump into world renowned hot Jewish funny man Jason Segel outside a bagel shop at midnight (How in the Jewish dating laws of probability is Jason Segel single btw? We’d end up at a better bagel shop the next morning, for breakfast. I have, however, accepted that I’m never going to haphazardly stumble upon my perfect single Samson in the city, ask him in our opening five-minute meet-cute if he’s Jewish, receive an affirmative response, immediately recover from that line of curveball questioning by not appearing remotely desperate, while also pocket-texting my mum ‘CAN YOU PLEASE KEEP THE KOSHER CATERER ON STAND-BY?

The Sages are empowered to make "protective fences." This is part and parcel of the Torah, and is not considered extra.
(Though of course, the Sages will specify that their fence is rabbinic in nature, to avoid confusion with the Torah law.) As one example, the Torah says: "Do not boil a kid in it's mother's milk." On a Torah level, this only refers to meat from the three domesticated animals - cow, goat and sheep.
When The Internet Jewish dating game upped its ante, I was relieved that there was no longer the need to go to these thankless gatherings.
Now, I could recreate that very same experience virtually, by dating other Jews online.
However, since people "intuitively" associate chicken as "meat," we also do not mix chicken and milk.
This "rabbinic fence" was accepted by the entire Jewish people as binding law.
However, this much is certain: for whatever reason that suffering does occur, God does not burden people with more than they can bear.
No one can explain why adversity visited this young couple, but for whatever reason that it happened, they had already achieved enough strength to bear it.
Third, while there is always the option of converting a non-Jew, YOU try bringing that icebreaker up on a first date.
