Check out this interesting article in Salon about Jewish Orthodox dating online. It was about time they started getting rid of the matchmakers and got with the program. I guess there are prohibitions for everything, but as long as the subject is marriage, everything is permitted. Marriage is the ultimate goal. Nothing else matters. Apparently, 55% of all internet contacts are initiated by the woman, which is a good thing because in Orthodox Jewish circles nothing ever is, unless it is homemaking. What I thought amusing about the item is that the ad next to it is one for Basic Instinct II with Sharon Stone in a pose reminiscent of her infamous beaver shot way back when there was no online dating for frums.
