Cite chapter How to cite? Another male friend brought his non-Jewish girlfriend to shul. That being said, we all have to stop being so anal about dating. We are forcing our own to look elsewhere. I honestly think the problem is that people are too picky about who they date.
That being said, if I see them twenty years from now, they will probably still be single. Some people need to shorten their list of qualifications that they have for a partner. But the reality is that in this world, dating is two imperfect people finding each other.
Also, I see a lot of people preaching to other people about intermarriage. Yes, intermarriage is bad.
But being alone for 5,10,20 sometimes 30 or 40 years is terrible also. So when I listen to happily married Jews preach to a Jew who has been single a long time after looking for a Jewish partner and is now considered dating a non-Jew I think to myself there has got to be a better way. I think instead of preaching, those offering their advice should try to match the person up with a friend of theirs. Everyone has single friends. So to solve this crisis, the people dating have to be realistic about themselves and who they are looking for.

Regardless, I read it just for shits and giggles, and I really think you have ignored several issues, or simply swept them under the carpet for the convenience of your post. Are you single? If so, have you lowered YOUR expectations? If not, why not? Are you married? If so, how many successful shidduchim have you overseen?
