  • Want to Enjoy Jewish Dating? Do Brain Exercises

    Posted By Mike Rosenthal on July 01, 2010 | 1 Comments

    I thank God every day in my Shacharit prayers that I didn’t have to go on too many dates in my life. I estimate I went on less than 15 first dates, and I can’t say I actually enjoyed any of them. For some reason, God saw it fit to allow me to cross paths with my wife when I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown near Manhattan’s infamous Upper West Side meat market, one of the scariest neighborhoods for someone like myself for whom being social sucks up a lot of energy.

  • Interesting Answers to Boring Questions: A Must have Dating Tactic

    Posted By Mike Rosenthal on June 23, 2010 | Leave a Comment

    If there’s anything that boring dates have in common, it is boring questions, and boring answers to them. If you’re going on a blind date, be it Jdate, Saw you at Sinai, Didn’t See you at Sinai, Frumster, or what have you, you’re bound to get asked the same questions every single time. This is why people generally hate dating. You see, when you meet someone randomly and you have a good opener, you generally discuss interesting things before you even touch the topic of where are you from and what do you do and how many siblings you have. But if you’re going on a blind date, you’ll have to be equipped to answer these questions in ways that will steer the conversation to something interesting and, more importantly, emotional – for her.

  • Dating Foru

    Posted By Mike Rosenthal on April 14, 2010 | Leave a Comment

    I just found this cute little thing that may give you some original ideas for taking a girl out and making her remember you as something more than some guy who gave her a free dinner one night. It’s a jewelry and wedding blog called Zoara. The ideas are based on giving the girl an emotional experience based on something other than yourself. Meaning, if you’re just going to dinner, the only thing she can be impressed with is what you say, instead of what you do. If you have more of an active date, she can actually have an impression of you in action, which takes some of the pressure off you to be the most interesting human being on the planet or she’ll leave.

  • Divorce under Jewish Wedding Chuppah

    Posted By Mike Rosenthal on March 19, 2010 | Leave a Comment

    They didn’t even have time to return their wedding gifts for store credit. Maybe they should have figured out that they weren’t meant for each other while they were still dating. Yesterday, a couple, during their actual Jewish wedding ceremony, erupted in a fight to the point that the Rabbi had to beg to continue the wedding. The fight started when the families of the bride and groom started arguing about the seating arrangements at the chuppah ceremony.

  • The Best Worst Date of my Life

    Posted By Mike Rosenthal on March 18, 2010 | Leave a Comment

    When I was stuck in the Jewish dating world, and thank God I wasn’t stuck there for too long, I very quickly lost most of my sanity. It was a rapid process of grey matter deterioration where I felt like I was being pithed like a frog. One day I decided I wasn’t going to take it seriously anymore, so I radically changed my approach. Instead of trying to keep a conversation going or looking at the girl with images flashing in my head of what kind of Shabbat Candlesticks we’d have in our home when we were married or what kind of Bar Mitzvah gifts we’d give to our future son thirteen years from now (granted, I never intentionally thought about these things, they just infiltrated my mind) I was going to take control and do whatever I wanted. This meant I wasn’t going to plan anything, and I was going to be fully myself.

  • Power Problem

    There are more causes for the current loathsome state of the dating world than can be counted on the hands and feet of everyone involved in the endeavor combined. But regardless of the causes, the trick is to find a method that has a prayer of addressing most of the issues.
