Light-hearted pro-active glimpse of loving family concerned about their single son/father
I WISH I knew why it is so difficult! I wish it was as easy as that online too -- in my experience it is fraught iwth potholes, confusion, disappointments and deceit. Also, I live in a country far away fromt he US and just about everything to do with dating sites is billed in dollars, which might be fine for Americans, but translated into my currency makes this whole little exercise very expensive. I keep thinking it shouldn't be so expensive just to look for a soul mate - one hasn't even got as far as finding the many dead-ends one has to wade through before getting there... On religious Jewish dating sites, in addition, it is very difficult to describe oneself without the managers of the dating site imposing their own vocabulary as a means of description - most of which I don't understand, since those terms can mean very different things in the US as opposed to anywhere else in the world. ALtogether, as a single who has already had family, but one who is still in the full tide of life, it is very difficult ever finding the right way to meet potential possibilities... altogether it becomes a mostly difficult and disappoiinting activiity. I wish it were as simple as the video implies... I wish the men one got to see had even half as well-developed a sense of compassion that the character in the video hasIt is qu9ite a humorous take on this thorny, difficult matter...
