Soon By You Episode 4: The Dates | Soon By You

  I am now posting the fourth episode of Soon By You. I think that this is the best episode yet. David and Sarah F. finally go on a date. The date is at Little Shop of Crafts which I have actually been to. I loved how the date went and how it ended. It may be cliched, but its definitely something to think about.So often things go well until that one thing comes up that we think is a deal breaker. That something that  maybe years from now we realize should not have been a thing at all.
       Another favorite part of this episode is Sarah J's skype date. There are always the girls who will try just anything to find a man. even have a skype date with an Israeli when their Hebrew isn't up to par.
      The event that Noa runs at MJE is hilarious. These characters are never more real I know so many single women like Noa. She probably will be single at 40, but when she does find the one he will be exactly what she was waiting for.  The older single man is also very funny. He is like an Elyahu giving sage advice to the younger ones.
       Now that I have given away the whole story go watch episode 4.

Soon By You Episode 2: The Follow Up

I decided to post the next episode of this web series so no one has to wonder what happens next. Enjoy.

Soon By You - Episode 1: The Setup

   Srugim this isn't but its entertaining nonetheless. Its a chronicle of  orthodox Jewish dating on the Upper West Side in Manhattan.
      This series is about twenty some  things and it makes me realize that not much has changed in dating for Orthodox Jewish dying for twenty something's since I was in my twenties. Not sure if its good or BSD but it just goes to show there is nothing new under the sun.

     I often hold on to momentos too long thinking they will hold the memory of someone in my life. The longer I hold on to that thing the less it contains the memory of it's former owner and the more it becomes just a thing. My aunt had lived in my grandmother's house for years after my grandmother had passed away . For a long time I felt her presence there and would think that my grandmother would join us in the family room at any minute. After a long while it just became a house and though the house still had the same musty smell that it had when my grandmother lived there I no longer expected to see her pop into her home. When I see pictures of her cheerful smiling face I still miss her but now her memory lives in my heart not in her house   or her things.
