770 Bochur Vs. Chilled Guy

Shidduchim SOS: A puzzled bochur who read the previous blog wants to know if the Shidduch system works for everyone, comparing the "average 770 bochur" vs. a guy who's a little more "chilled," who has had contact with girls over the years. Full Story

I think one of the main problems these days is that boys like the author of the letter expect to be “swept off their feet.” Hold on a second, aren’t the boys the ones that are supposed to do the sweeping???!!

I don’t agree with the terms used-770 bochur, chilled, frozen, LSS, and last but not least, Frum but with it bothers me the most

Special Guy:

To the guy who wrote this question, instead of asking “nice girl, but why is she different than anyone else out there? What makes her the special one for me?”

Ask yourself “why am I different than anyone else out there? What makes me the special one for her, or any girl?”

In other words. whats in it for her?

You will be shocked by the answer!

Is Step #5 redundant to Step #4? or is step #5 geared towards the person looking for the shidduch him/herself vs. the parents? Is there an implied suggestion for the guy or girl to do his/her own research after the parents have presented him/her with a name?

When my son was dating his wife he said that he really liked her but asked how he should know if she was the “right” one.
I advised him to date 100 more girls and compare them but he decided to stick with her. Keneinahora their kids are very cute!

thanks this article spoke straight to me
Guest
thanks this article spoke straight to me

though why did she advertise a website

and i liked comment 5 though i am great!

how do we deal in shidduchim if someone doesnt have a clear future and has options

and i am committed to live with the one i am dating i pray to g-d when i start to give it my all and to marry her

Great article & well written!
Guest
Great article & well written!

Why are people bashing this guy???

I think he brought up an issue that others may have been wondering about themselves… I think it’s very mature of you to step up & voice your opinion (& don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!)

p.s I also liked how Mrs. Junik answered the question. She gave constructive tips, without putting anyone down!

Men should sweep you of your feet, Or so sais the ferrytale, When a man sais a woman did not sweep him of his feet ,he means mentaly, then he will continue literaly as in the ferrytale, after the wedding.!!!

SO NOW A BOCHUR WHO WAS LOW ENOUGH TO STOOPED TO HIS MOST BASE TEMPTATIONS “PREVIOUS CONTACT WITH GIRLS” IS CALLED MERELY A “CHILLED GUY”?????

RL HOW DEAR THIS AUTHOR WHITE WASH SUCH CREEPS/PREDATORS WITH A BENINE TITLE “CHILLED”????!!

THEY (THESE CREEPS) HAVE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF ,DEGRADED AND WOMANIZED SOO MANY LOVE-STARVED YIDDISHE DAUGHTERS! (SHMOOZING THEM) USING THEM AND INEVITABLY DUMPING THEM HIGH AND DRY LIKE CHEAP PIECES OF MEAT WORTH LESS THEN A PAID…. RL

No counter-statements except for one very urgently-needed and helpful outlook: People exist out there, who simply are not successful and/or comfortable with the traditional shidduch system. Perhaps “Chanoch LaNaar Al Pi Darko” does not refer exclusively to literal teaching. As a community, we need to be more understanding and flexible.

Very sorry for the chilled guy, but he got the natural consequence of his actions. The Rebbe says very clearly: That when we are close when we are meant to be far, we will end up being far when we are meant to be close. The Torah guidelines which disapprove of casual pre-marital or extra-marital friendships are not to fence us in, but are for our very own benefit. We disregard the frum lifestyle at the peril of our very own happiness. So, chilled bochur, do tshuva and hopefully you will find in marriage the meaning and friendship that eluded… Read more »

i agree with you 101% 🙁

Guest
having the chills?

I think the term chilled has to be clarified a bit in this article. There are definitely different levels of “chilled” in Lubavitch. It is a very relative term. That is why when someone tells you the guy is chilled you have to ask what that means. Does he pick or trim his beard, does he listen to non-jewish music etc…. If someone has “exposure” to girls what does that mean exactly. Has he been flirting with girls a lot, has he become physical with girls etc…?

Wow
Guest
Wow

This Article Just Clearly Showed Me – What kind of Lubavitchers Read this “stuff”. Ones who live in a completely different reality than I do and the Lubavitchers I know. Close minded much?
Glad it works for Y’all though.
But seriously — what makes The author and expert????

Just a check into reality, if you don’t think that EVERY 770 Bochur has e-mail, and uses the internet (albeit mainly for Kodesh only – keeping in contact with Shlichus year, and so on) you MUST check into this reality fast you are gonna be in for a real surprise…!

A 770 Bochur! (and “considered” a very good one at that!)

Rather harsh
Guest
Rather harsh

Isn’t #16 being rather harsh? Not all people who are ‘chilled’ are bad people who purposely and spitefully ruin all love-desperate girls. I think a little reality check would be helpful.

you are both assuming way too much
you are making filth of something that was not that
even though it is NOT the way
it is not like what you think
note: you see who you are – what are your deep dark thoughts – get to know yourself a little – may surprise yourselves.

to the person who said why is a 770 bochur on line?
naive – who cannot be on line in today’s world – wake up

Please don’t scream at us, it’s is very bad manors. It also makes us not want to hear what you have to say. Also, you are making outrageous claims to think that someone who has had social contact with other human beings has “TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF ,DEGRADED AND WOMANIZED” (your sound like a shadchan I know in the Midwest)… You might live in a bubble but many of us live in the real world that is approximately 50% of the opposite gender and therefore unless you choose a lifestyle that completely isolates you from the opposite gender (as in extremely… Read more »

A Message from G-d to #6

Where do you get this idea that what the author is talking about is wrong and that “it’s against what G-d wants” G-d did not say though shalt not talk to girls. Please do not preach that what is a chumrah or a minhag etc (I know y’all might differ with that) is what G-d Said.

Yaakov Avinu and Moshe Rabeinu both met their wives on their own and did not have a Shadchan if what they did was against G-d then we got a problem with your Religion.

girls have just as much of a desire as the guy does
and we are not! thier prey
we choose to get ourselves into it and therefore we get hurt

Guest
#16 unfortunately is right for being outraged!

the damage these girls suffer bec of these sweet-talkers is feeling degraded and tricked, as well as haunting guilt and regret!
especially how such cheep thrills impact the pure love and clossesness with their own husband in the future!

a life long sentance of marital disconnect, all bec of spending her purity and intimacy prematurely,

instead of letting it build and compound when saved for a first love in marriage!!

so considering the selfishness and resulting damage, the “OUTRAGE” is well placed!

i agree with #40
you must have come in to contact with the wrong guys
because not all of them out there are as bad as you make them seem
just remember to recognize your needs as much as theirs
and you will come to see that
the girls are to blame just as much as the men involved.
and im talking from experience
oh, and im a girl

Answer : Go out again until your sure either way (or until you get dumped). Also take the time to think between dates ie try to spread them apart. Think with you mind not only with your hart. Look for someone normal later you will see the greateness as you give to each other. Ask experts and loved ones.
