Before you join, make sure you're aware of the more difficult parts of being a Chabad, for example eating in the Succah even when it's pouring rain.

Lol...
We're anti sleeping in the sukkah, but even if it's shmini atzreres and it's pouring rain we'll still be eating in it...

And the groupon deal is fine, as long as you walk around with a laser all day long.  (See also: The story about the beard removal powder)

I also must warn you, if you become Chabad you stand the risk of losing certain friends. Steve2 comes to mind...

Also much less restrictive in the "community standards" for tznius. not the halochos, just the b.s "chumros" ones that a lot of other segments of society perceive as normal

Now that's a whole other discussion. Some would argue that the 'standards' (lack thereof?) are too relaxed...

Chabad tznius standards are very peer-pressure oriented.  They're very different in every place.

I know here in CLE standards are more strict than Chabad standards in say LA or CH.  As some 15-20 new chabad couples have joined the CLE Chabad community in the past couple years in I think it surprised many local folks with how lax standards of some can be...

Regardless, Chabad girls do know how to dress well, even the ones that do follow tznius halachos :)

Agreed. But it's the wrong kind of peer-pressure...

Without a doubt.

I was a little shocked on some of my shidduch dates with the lack of standards even from girls who professed to be "chasidish"

@cholent: it says 'started by SF', that should have been enough of a hint. :)
