Tired, but not Retired

What it means if I think about this problem constantly... Am I obsessed?.. I don't think so. Do I agree with evetrything what it's going on around me?.. I don't think so. Do I have a right to have an opinion? Yes, I do. Do I have a right to express my opinion? Yes, I do. So, I'm going to start to blog my thoughts and feelings about such normal thing: Jewish marriage or not only Jewish and everything which is attached to it in modern times. I don't pretend to be an expert, but I want my opinion to be out. You can agree, disagree and even strongly condemn, but my opinion matters to me.

Where to start?... I think, I should begin with my choice of language. My English is my third language, after Russian and Ukrainian, which I studied and used for many years back in Soviet Union. For last 20 years living in America, I added English, which was not easy, at least to me.  My English became a major communication channel in my professional life. Believe me or not, I feel more comfortable to run my professional duties on English, than on Russian. I'm not a writer, and I don't want to be a writer, but I love to express my thoughs and feelings in writing. Moreover I love to be heard by people and value their opinion a lot. Don't shy to leave a comment. Trust me, it matters to me.

Since I lived in Soviet Union and have been raised in enough conservative Jewish family, I know a lot of Yiddish words, and recently I found out, that they are no in use anymore. Nowadays, instead of "shiksa", we use "non-Jewish woman"; and instead of "schmuck" - looser. To tell you the truth, I still feel comfortable with old words, which define exactly, what I want. Since, I don't want to offend anyone, I will try to use new terminology.

I'm tired of non-Jewish women around Jewish men... I'm tired of loosers, who want to be only with non-Jewish women..., and I'm tired of people, who cover such big problem. So, I decided to investigate why exactly Jewish men choose non-Jewish women. Let's start.
