Your question is not weird but one that many young folks ask. Your desire to talk with a * * * * * * * * * is a natural part of growing up. Although your desire is healthy.., or natural, shouldn't imply that one should follow through with their heart. If you are Orthodox, you know what is expected of you. If your parents do not enforce Jewish Law is does not mean the Law is wrong.., but only that your parents do not realize it's importance. It is never ok to do wrong. never.

<<but why is it worng????>>

because halacha says so (do you understand why stealing is wrong? how about lying?)

<<why is there that desire??>>

so you get married!

Dear Friend,
I have a son [22] and daughter [19] who grew up in a household where they had much freedom. My wife and I thought we were pretty cool parents. My son, six months ago became a father and is not planning on getting married to the young lady who born his child. Although they live together.., they are both very unhappy. My daughter recently got a job at a bar/restaurant where the women's outward appearance is needless to say risky. I consider both of my children good kids with not so good parents. There was no direction, no law, only freedom to act out their every desire. Laws sometimes may seem difficult to understand as they seem to keep us from enjoying life to it's fullest. But really, law looks out for our best interest and your obedience secures you a future minus the many heart breaks that life may sit before you. Your world can be one of two realities.., I wish you a world where Law will bring you to the place we all desire.

I think your question is a good one. Why not talk to boys? After all, its only talking! Nothing else!

Yeah right!! The rabbis created something called "muksah". The purpose of creating this is so we dont come to do what is really wrong.

There is no way that it is just talking. One thing leads to the next. Its a fact of life. The human condition. Its expected. Hence, to refrain from this happening........

I don't believe it! I have heard this one for years. I don't mean to be harsh, but I work with lots of Jewish teens. They say the same thing.

I'd like to know how long they have known these people. Is it serious? Do they only know them as internet buddies? Tell me details.

I see. So you say that you want to have a friend who happens to be a boy and you want to talk to him. Tell me what are your motives?

Sorry, I didn't finish my previous one.

Why would anyone want to talk to a "guy" (as you call it). Talk to another girl. There are so many out there. The reason why talk to a "guy" is b/c of chemistry.

Something is happening during the converstaion. Whether its concious or subconcious.

There is no way for a teeenage girl to talk to a teenage boy and not have feelings. This is the way G-d created us.

......One thing leads to the next!

two things:
first of all, about your shock over Walter's story, Walter has said elsewhere that he is not Jewish
secondly, I heard a talk given by a Rabbi to modern sem girls (not Lub.) about "platonic relationships." His message, said in a good-humored way which wasn't offensive, was that when it comes to these things, girls are "stupid." This is because girls (and you prove the point), are happy to "just be friends" with boys. What's stupid is that the girls remain oblivious to the fact that for the boys it's not about "just being friends"! Girls deny this and say things like, "oh, but not him" but boy are they wrong!
