I am a girl in shidduchim…what else is new? I am not a size 2, but if i may say so myself, I carry my weight well, I’m tall, and I always look put together and very up to date. Why is every other boy not even looking into me because I am not “very skinny”?
I work full time, I am in college, and yes, I do make time to go work out at the gym. How much more can I do? And why is this such a big focus in our world? Is this the whole focus in life? Is that the goal and purpose in marriage?
Granted, one must look for a suitable spouse whom one likes. But if a boy is not even willing to go out with me, how could he be certain that just because I’m not a size 2, he won’t like me and my appearance?
This system is driving me insane. Is this fair? Why is this considered normal?
