Really really expensive singles weekends

I’m not one to really do these singles weekends out in the country. This came to mind this week, as it being Shabbos Nachamu and I know many people go away this weekend, married and single alike. I know FrumSatire wrote about his experiences at many of these places, some good, many bad. One of the reasons I never went away of these weekend ordeals, which there more than just the finance reason but for this post I am going to stick to this reason, is that they are so frigin expensive. I heard this place advertised last week on the Jewish radio show saying they have a “cheap” package where it’s only 700 dollars a person. Are they out of the mind? Like hell I would pay out that kind of cash for 2 nights listening to speeches galore. I know there are many of them for 300 dollars during the year, but even that is a crazy amount to pay. I think the max I would pay is 100 bucks.

The people making these events are out there to make a huge profit and don’t really care about getting people married. They must have a great marketing staff to get people out there I tell you. If these organization really cared about the so called ‘single crisis’, they would get sponsors and/or charge us what it costs, and quit viewing it as a business venture. Tell these people to stop being typical jews and stop thinking with their wallet and Acuras.

Dude the shabbatons I went to were dirt cheap. one was $36 and the other was $25. End the madness rocks you should go on one of their shabbatons.

I have heard that the Gateways shabbatons are free for men because there are always too many women there.

Yeah, you are probably talking about the Flakey Jake ones that are at touristy destinations like Cancun or over cruises. He does have to recover his costs.

I'd pay $700 if they guaranteed the place would be filled with Jewish supermodels :)

frumsatire - I guess i was referring to the ones where they put you up at the fancy hotels. Your prob referring to the ones where they put you up at homes in the community. You prob get alot more for your money at those, rather than wasting money on the hotel and less on meeting prospect shidduchs.
Shmuli - i heard this ad for a hotel upstate somewhere, what cost 700 dollar to sleep 2 nights in a hotel and a few meals.
Lance - i think thats an oxymoron.
