For anyone thinking of starting an innocent boyfriend girlfriend relationship it would be advisable to watch or listen to Rabbi Orlofsky's masterful presentation titled "The Platonic Relationship". Besides bluntly confronting the challenges, he happens to be very funny.....,

Absolutely genius and hilarious, well worth the time(available on apple podcasts and anywhere

Ya, I'm a big fan of his. He gives a Shmooze once a week via podcast call the Rabbi Orlofsky Show, I get a lot of laughs out of it... And something to say on the parsha sometimes also. 

Theres something about his charisma, everyone just likes him.

Many guys here have come to realize that for their personal hatzlocha, they had to inconvenience themselves and make things less accessible. Whether it's youtube as in your case, or other sites for other guys, people realize that Hashem is asking from us to sacrifice convenience (much less a nisayon than sacrificing parnassa for shmiras Shabbos that our great grandparents had to do). If that is your decision, be proud, knowing that you are giving Hashem tremendous nachas. And also realize that by posting, you are being an inspiration for others to move out of their comfort zones too. Hatzlocha.

Day 45: Clean

Trying to drop YouTube, did watch a little out of habit, nothing serious came up though b’h... I do have hobbys that I use YouTube to learn more about or solve problems, I’m either going to have to get a better adblock (techloq perhaps) or look for another way to not use YouTube and still get the information I need.

Try to think of the sacrifice as building and investing in a relationship with your Father. Its our goal in life to get closer to Him and he's waiting and craves for us to develop that bond. And whats a relationship without sacrifice.

100% true and I'm looking for an alternate way to get the information I need on a daily basis, I'm sure I'll find something

Keep posting great news
I say for myself, I don't post on every thread, but even when I don't, I read it and get chizuk from it. So I'm sure a lot of people (myself included) are getting chizuk from your thread even if they're not replying to it on a constant basis.

Thank You!

Day 49: Clean. Going to be heading up to sleep-away today, so this is going to be the last post for 6-8 weeks. I have already marked day 90 on my calendar and I'm looking forward to it. Going to miss the chats and wishing y'all a easy time. Peace out.
