Price too low

Should be minimum of $50.00.

Breaking up is hard to do

I was going out with a fellow for almost 4 years and he just stopped calling me on the phone. No closure no explanation, nothing. We were not children both of us in our 60's I'm a widow and he was separated from his wife. He is the biggest coward I have ever known and not a mensch. You don't do that to someone.

I Couldn't Agree with you More, but -

You're absolutely right. The problem is, people do start dating, without any sense of who they are, what they need, and deserve. What is better, that someone uses this agency, and takes the "coward's way out" or that they spend months, even years of their life, entangled in something they simply hadn't the courage to end?

The Shadchan...

who is the go-between for the dating couple, acts as an agent to deliver this news. But the difference is that this "agent" is mutually chosen to act on their behalf and follows up after each date until such time the relationship is called off by either one of them or both of them (or until a Mazal Tov is announced). Much nicer that way, don't you think?

Not a Guarantee

OK, so they send the inital letter. Do they also ensure that the person never comes back to you, especially with the complaint that you were too cowardly to say it yourself? If I were the recipient of such a letter the first thing I would do is contact my estwhile dating partner directly to make sure it wasn't someone's practical joke!

Coward's way out

This is the coward's way out. If you can date the person, you can break up with the person

You are so right...

...a coward's way out. I don't know whether this is an offshoot of our politically correct movement or if we've simply raised a generation of self-centered, conflict averse individuals. It is just plain selfish to string someone along simply to avoid the normal feeling of guilt and possibly remorse that will undoubtably, and temporarily, follow. Unfortunately in life there is no way to 100% avoid hurting someone's feelings. As the Rabbi said, if you're not old enough to break up you're not old enough to date. So grow up.

Very Sad

It's pitiful to me that people try to create their parnassah by starting businesses like these that feed off of others' misery. Everything today is a potential business opportunity. One man's misfortune is another's potential fortune. It's horrible and sickening. The business world has lost its sense of ethics, and people have lost their sense of common decency. What a shame!
