After shabbos my family went to Boston to visit our relatives. Our relatives are not frum at all, and so when they asked me "are you seeing anyone" I didn't expect them to judge me when I said "no, I'm not". While they didn't exactly judge me, they did surprise me with their answer.
They were like "why aren't you seeing anyone?" (normal question, I guess), and I replied that the guys I'm meeting are just not for me. So I expected them to be just like all the other non-frum "secular" people I know, to tell me "well, you're young still, go to grad school, you're smart, worry about marraige later." But what I got was "You shouldn't be so picky, you're already 20, you aren't getting any younger." I was so shocked by this, that I found myself speechless with nothing to answer. And now thinking back, I don't think I'd have anything to answer anyway. I mean, they're older than me, and are related, there really is nothing I could've said that wouldn't have sounded somewhat rude!
OY... I don't like the relatives from Boston on my back , especially since they're not frum, its like there's no escape!
