Are you dating in a vacuum?!To describe the exceedingly small number of replies as “dismal” would be an understatement…especially this one, which--perhaps inspired by this week’s celebration of Tu B’Av?--appears to be a particularly bad fit:
Youthful 40-something DJF with a wide, varied and growing circle of family, friends and interests seeks S/DJM for a “meet and greet” that doesn't suck as much as a Bissell. If we’re lucky, intellectual, emotional and physical sparks (but no dust, dirt or dander) will fly and we’ll get swept up in a meaningful long-term relationship that's built slowly on trust, shared values, honesty and a gut reaction that "this is a good thing."
Desire quiet, upright, bagless (relatively little baggage) and age-appropriate Jewish guy (45-55) with attachments to family, friends and other things money can't buy. Bonus points if you know a bisel from a Hoover and retain ties to your religious upbringing that you'd be willing to share if, in fact, we find we're bashert.
I saw your CL post. I am on my way to work. So I will be brief.
Here is my info:
220divorced dad of 5 kids (2 are married and living far away) - at home - 19b 16b 15g - 24x7orthodox - shabbos - minyan 3x/day (usually)mostly right wing with some deviations into the leftlive in BrooklynAm I eligible?
What, pray tell, on God's green earth makes this guy think he's "eligible?!?" I responded with this:
Thanks, but no...you're not eligible. I'm a liberal Reform Jew and although I attend a Shabbat minyan, the chasm is just too wide.
Thanks for being in touch...good luck to you.
To which he responded:
Good Luck to You.If you chance across an orthodox woman, mention me. Thanks.
Sure. Will do, buddy…
