Today at work I received a text message from my best friend, it read:
Omg, ________is really desperate to get married. she just told me she has like two dates everday this week.
I was in total shock. The girl is 21 (possibly still 20) and she's already going nuts. I texted my best friend back and asked her why the girl is so desperate, and she replied "because her sisters were married by that age."
I think that is absolutely insane! She's not her sisters. To go out with 8 guys (i'm not counting friday or motzei shabbos) in one week is a really bad idea. That can totally confuse and complicate everything. I hate that the frum world has turned girls into this. I really hate it.
A few hours later (my best friend works) I received another text that read something like "her sisters also went out on 18 dates with their husbands before they got engaged, so thats how many dates she wants to have before getting engaged."
The frum world needs serious change. I obviously don't see anything wrong with encouraging people to start families and such, but to make 21 year old girls feel desperate is insane. And to ALLOW your daughter to go out with 8 guys at once is insane. This entire situation is insane.
