  1. its a great concept but in reality it wont work for most and ill explain why.
    when ur dating there are a few things that need to happen in order to see if this can be ur potential spouse 1)great conversation that flows nicely
    2) u want to be on the same level of understanding to some degree on hashkafos and personality traits (need to think hes funny when he makes a joke, u like his way of viewing life etc)

    3) (this is where u wont be able to “feel it out” on a video screen), the way someone carries himself when he is just doing normal things walking talking driving interacting with others (when buying drinks) etc this is when u need to see it in person on a first date, u might like someone just by talking to him just stam on a video but when u meet him he can be a totally different person. anyone who’s married or has a friend or is dating can understand this concept.

    Finally the most important reason this wont work is because if u date normally u can be attracted to person itself and not just the conversation and a pretty face in a video, u will get a feel and chemistry involved when ur dating in real life.

    let me be clear i don’t think this cant work to some extent maybe 2nd date 3rd date but if u use this as a first date then alot of guys girls will be “missing” there bashert because they just wont feel that this guys for them even if the convo went well, on the other hand if ur live on a date and the convos good ull get that vib that can change a “ok date but hes not for me” in to a 2nd date and possibly marriage i know myself that chemistry together with good conversation leads to a happy marriage i don’t believe i would of got that vib over a video chat no way!!

    in conclusion i want to thank u guys for trying ur best to solve the shidduch crisis enjoy!!!

  2. When I first heard of this I had of the same thoughts , but then I realized that many of us are out of touch in many ways
    1. The new generation is very tech savvy and tech based, many people (even goyim) are meeting online , and it doesn’t take away from the first date.
    2. Many people especially boys are turning down shiduchim because it doesn’t sound perfect.I can even say so about myself back when I was going out. It wast that they are looking for the perfect person.it is just that before the kill the day and over 100 bucks or a few days and a few hundred dollars (if the girl is out of town) they want to make sure it is a worthwhile investment.it leads to asking many stupid questions and giving many senseless NOs.but really to a degree its not so senseless because each person might only has limited time , money and stregnth, so they might as well put it where they fell it has the largest chance of sucess , hence turning down may good but not perfect sounding shidduchim.

    You have to look at this more as part of the info gathering aspect than the dating aspect.A. it doesn’t take much time effort or money B.it will help that less stupid and insulting questions will be asked. C. By the time they have the real first date they will feel on their own that it has a shot and will be more enthusiastic about it because its their own decision to meet this person, not just giving in to some pressure putting shadchan.D.it will prevent many DOAs which wastes time and effort

    In my opinion people should be warned that it is not a real date just the next level of info before a date. I am pretty sure many boys will meet a few girls on video in one week then next week go out with the one they feel best about. I would consider it double dating at all, just an upgraded extension of the info process so that more read shidduchim will result in real dates.

  3. This is such a dumb Idea shidduch dating itself is a dumb idea, but this is just over the top. Judge someone by how they look on a video??? What is so wrong with a boy meeting a girl on his owen accord??

  4. Chemistry? No one ever told me that chemistry was going to be involved in this boy/girl thing, guess I should have paid more attention in chemistry class instead of health class.

  5. Did the Rabbonim approve the release this promotional video. For those who are targeted by this project, they should not have a way of watching the video.
