Great questions. I especially like "What do I wear?"
The Debrief: On Dating in a New City
Evan, I think you are spot on with your analysis. I have been asked all of the questions above, not just on dates but in many other situations as well. I do think in the Jewish world (particularly in Boston) there is a difference in treatment of Jews from the American Military vs. the IDF. Jews seem to have more understanding as to why another Jew would join the IDF. I know this because as an American veteran, my number one question I have been asked more than anything else is, "What is a nice Jewish girl doing in the Army?" Todah Rabah for your service and a B'Hatzlacha in your dating.

(My comments yesterday did not post.) Wonderfully written, piece, Mimi. It reads like literary criticism (good literary criticism), effectively torpedoing the book with the writer's own words. Well done.
