Dating can bring out the worst in you, but luckily Yom Kippur gives us the opportunity to atone for our sins, decide not to act or think such a way again, and start anew.
What kind of sins are singles guilty of?
- Being judgmental for one — deciding that a guy or gal isn’t for us because of their looks or their job or their friends.
- Talking badly about others –whether it’s people you went on dates with or badmouthing someone to bond with a date.
- Lying — saying you are not what you are to impress someone (more successful, more popular, younger), or making something up to get out of a bad date.
- And of course there’s the drinking and sex that comes with dating.
This year, make a commitment to withhold judgment, to be honest, and to not allow dating to get the best of you.
