Pun intended?!?

Most definitely intended and missed by most.

I just reread the post and I am relieved to see that I may have misunderstood it.

I thought the friend was asked while dating, as in ON A DATE. Hence my post.

But now I think the OP meant while dating, as in while in the parsha, meaning before the date. BH.
That's how I understood it as well. I hope that it's the second option. :-\

Does that mean most of my comments aren't even understood here?

R' Reuvein Feinstein was once speaking to a group of talmidim who were all dating for at least a little while. He asked them what they talk about when dating, most of them answered that they talk about the "important" things like hashkafa etc. He asked if any of them discuss if they squeeze the toothpaste tube from the bottom or the middle, and most of them laughed like it's a funny joke. He then told them that these are the important things to discuss because these are the things that can ruin a marriage.

A few years later one of those boys went over to R' Reuvein to tell him that he saved his marriage. He had gotten married and he is the neater one in the house. One day he comes in and things are pretty messy and he was upset about it, then he walked into the bathroom and stuff were left out all over the vanity, then he sees the toothpaste squeezed from the middle. He was about to throw a fit and he remembered "the shmuz" and burst out laughing...

Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things
BIG PEOPLE TALK ABOUT IDEAS.

Just ask Megan Markle...  ;D

There was a build up and this was about to put him over the top, but remembering how he considered it to be so insignificant back then made him realize it wasn't such a big deal.
Either way, the issue was not the toothpaste but the build-up. Such build-ups can happen over any type of issue, significant or not, but it is almost never the issue itself but rather how it is dealt with that creates the problems.

This has go to be the craziest question ever
I know someone that was asked about a boy, they wanted to know what would he do, if he was walking in the desert and came across a dead body.
 I was talking to the person that was asked this question and we were debating what the questioner was trying to figure out. We couldnt figure it out.
Some options were
a)would he walk by and pretend he never saw anything and leave it for the next guy to worry about
B)would he do the right thing when no ones looking
C) would he freak out and faint?

Your thoughts

This

Intense girl is grilling the boy the entire date. On the way home, she continues her farher.
"Tell me," she asks. "What's the difference between din and yashrus?"
He thinks for a second and then answers.
"Mi'tzad hadin, I should drop you off right here. Yashrus is that I drive you home."

This definitely beats the time I got asked, "If he got a flat tire, what would he do?"

In answer to that question, I might say, "Oh, that actually happened. When I found him, he was standing over the body with blood dripping off his hands and he was muttering, 'that should teach her not to ask weird  shidduch questions.'"

A word of instruction: I have given information countless times, and I consider myself a professional at highlighting people's positive attributes without lying. I can give precise information about what type of person the boy is, in the most positive light. For example, "Yes, he's a really serious learner, but he's the type who will be a good husband and make sure to be home for his wife during bain hasdarim," (read: not a major masmid), or "I was his chavrusah and he was always there before me" (please don't ask me what time I came...).

Now to the story:
I once got a call from someone seeking information about a friend of mine. During the course of the conversation, I mentioned that my friend, while he was a serious learner who learned the whole day, had a talent for computers, and he even gave a small computer course at night once a week.

The person who called me for the information started to lecture me that I should be careful what I say about people, because I could turn people off by providing such information!

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

I feel like this is one of those dumb brain teasers.

Q. What would he do, if he was walking in the desert and came across a dead body. And the murderer was now coming towards him.

A. He would use the mace to fend of the attacker...
