Mars & Venus Go to Shul: Third Date (BlogCarnival of Jewish Dating)

Sorry about the delay in this Carnival...looks like once a month is the best I can hope for with this kind of crazy schedule... and now, with Passover, I probably won't get back to writing here for a week. So enjoy the links, explore on your own and write in with your recommendations for the May edition of Mars & Venus Go to Shul... Mars & Venus First Date Chick, who became blogfamous for chronicling each of her first dates with a new man, has started seeing someone, and is wondering what that might mean for her blog audience. She might want to check in with Honorary Jew (although I'm not sure that's a compliment) Ken Wheaton at the Non-Dating Life with his post about "what to do with your dating blog when you're in a relationship." First-timers club....Ladies and gentlemen, the battle of trying to understand another "planet" doesn't end once you're married...I give you the Muqata on the subject of Passover cleaning. First-time Carnivaler Channahboo, at Little Miss Graham, is a triple submission threat as she presents her views on PDA, adventures with Purim costuming, "Got Milk?"and anthropologically ponders the differences between the Jerusalem single woman who is "Desperately Seeking in Katamon" and the "Katamonster":
The Katamonster deserves no pity as she gives none. She has no pity for the women she tramples over in the scramble to claim her prize; she has no remorse for those she leaves heartbroken in her trail; she bares no thought to the hurtful words she uses to badmouth a competitor.
Whatever happened to sisterhood? Oh yeah, all's fair in love and the search for love. You Don't Look LIke Your Profile (Online Dating Adventures) Our carnival regulars, Hilary and Annabel Lee, are still struggling with the games of dating and relating with guys they meet online. So check them out in general, now and forever. I mean it. P-Life, passionate and high-energy as ever, has thrown himself into a new relationship with a woman from California--they're totally making it work so far, and P-Life took it on himself to sort of semi-retire from his single blogger life, naming me among others as one of the pioneers in the writing about Jewish singles arena. Also calling it quits is JeruGuru. ILikedYourProfile has launched a "funny dating email contest" that could win you a $20 Starbucks card. Hilary gives words to the thoughts of many singles who find themselves homeward bound for Passover. Don't forget to make your submissions for the next edition of this BlogCarnival, coming in May to a blogspot near you... Happy Passover and/or Easter...

Hey Esther - Thanks for the link!

I can say that after 15 years, Mars & Venus still clash daily.

(And Thank G-d my wife has a sense of humor, or I'd be needing JDate myself after that pre-pesach cleaning posting!)

Moadim l'Simcha!

Make yourselves feel better about your JDates. I don't peddle my own posts, but yesterday's meeting was best worst date story I've ever had.

Thanks for the reference to the Non-Dating Life post. It was a great read! For now, NavyMan doesn't know about the First Dates blog so I avoid some of the problems mentioned in the post, but there is chance he might find out about it. Ack!

However, I do also have a non-anonymous blog, and NavyMan was getting a bit testy that I wouldn't refer to him by name on it for the first month, completely avoiding any mention of him. =) I do now, but that took a big leap of faith on my part.

Speaking of faith, Happy Pesach! And thanks for the link to my page as well =)

Esther,
If you don't put a new post up here soon I shall be forced to take your readers captive and revel them with the gory details of the new JDate man in my life....

Hey!! Thanks for the advert! I am keeping my fingers busy blogging away... And just to say that there is always space for sisterhood in my heart!! All I say is out of love! :) And the hope that others will join the quest of self-improvement! ;)
