JDA Presents: The Year in Blog Posts

At today's meeting of the JDaters Anonymous executive staff, one of the regional managers suggested that we do a Year-in-Review post. Everyone thought that a year-end wrap up was a good idea; then there was some discussion of whether this post should contain strictly twelve posts, one from and representing each month, or whether it should represent the favorite moments--the gutbusting and the heartwrenching--from posts over the last year. The latter plan won the majority vote. But we still gave it to the interns to research, so if you don't like the posts they selected, feel free to suggest your own favorites in the comments section. In any case, here's to another year of community support for all singles everywhere, and the married friends who love them... Best Post That Didn't Garner a Single Comment You Say Neato, Check Your Libido (January) Best Post Advocating Alcohol as Social Lubricant Why Don't We Get Drunk and... (February) Best Post Title Overtly Stolen From Hilary How You Got Here (March) Best Discussion of How Intended Compliments Can Land in Others' Ears as Insults You're Great, But I Don't Want to Date You (March) Best Post Based on a Visit to a Frumteens Website NEVER NEVER NEVER Trust a Boy (May) Best Recovery Plan for Disappointment Due to Unrequited Affection Single Girl's Survival Guide (May) Best Post Wondering About the Meaning of Bloglife Blogdentity Crisis (June) Best Non-Linear Post That Is Most Likely to Go Over People's Heads Refraction (August) Most Direct Inquiry into the Issue of "What Does He Mean By That?" Given Up on Dating (September) Best Exploration of the Possibilities for Why He's Not Calling The Vanishing (October) Best JDA-Originated Blog Idea and Accompanying FAQ Sheet Announcement of the New Mars & Venus Go To Shul Blogcarnival (December) New Year's Resolution Least Likely to Stick in 2006 Epistolary Esther (December) Cheers, everyone!

"...sheer number of suspected, undiagnosed cases of Asperger's Syndrome in the Upper West Side singles scene would shock you,..."

I don't know, Bill Gates has Asperger's. You could do worse.

Aspergers is where you have a kind of one track mind, that your interests are very narrow but that you spend alot of time on one particular area.

I salute all ye have so much time to read all of Esterke's blogs. She is quite the latent talent, and we wish her the best. Looking forward to that New Years day toast, I'll keep u informed of the bar.

I just found your blog and love all your straight-forward comments about this, that and everything related to jewishness. I myself just started a jdate blog, but I still have lots more reading to do here :) Happy New Year!

What a feast! I don't really read this site, just your main blog, so I missed out on these nuggets of wisdom. It's certainly evolved from its early days, when as I recall it was mostly just a collection of bad JDate stories.

First link doesn't work, by the way.
