I believe the ad is real, and there a few people I can think of off-hand, whom I can imagine being the author.
This ad disturbed me all Shabbat long.
So there’s no real great way to write this so I’ll just start plainly and the following.
I’ve just turned 40 and I’m a Jewish Orthodox woman. I’m warm, fun and loving and very committed to Judaism and to Zionism. I’m told that I’m pretty and I choose to believe that;-) I don’t want to give out too much information but I’ve got some really great and cool family members.
Bottom line is I’m not married and I really would like to have children and BH still can – I was recently tested. So here’s the story, I’m looking for a partner to become a joint-parent with me. If you are frum (I assume you know what this means..) and doven and are a Zionist. If you’ve got a stable job and are normal (by my standards.. which are pretty lenient..) then please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .

I believe she's mostly right.
I do have a problem believing that she will actually find someone normal who wants a child, but is afraid to commit to getting married.
Perhaps she is hoping to break the commitment phobia, by easing the guy into a comfortable relationship over time, and when he reaches the point that he realizes he is actually in a relationship, by then he will be comfortable with it and be willing to take the step to marriage.
I don't know. I see heartbreak ahead if that's the case. But that might not even be what's on her mind. She may really believe that this is the only option left on the table.
As it is, even as popular as divorce is today, I can see the child having a tough time in this situation.
One theory I have is that guys don't want to, and often can't commit because in their mind, there's always someone newer or better around the corner (or because the
I think both sides need some lessons in what a relationship really is and what marriage really is.
Getting back to this
I'm sending her an email to comment here, if she is willing. Perhaps it will help her find not just a partner, but a husband too.
