I am a female looking to convert. (and no, I don’t have a boyfriend or fiance who’s Jewish).
I am looking to convert Modern Orthodox after starting off in a different denomination, but the only thing I am afraid of as I move forward with my conversion are cultural differences.
For one, I work an hourly job and didn’t have the same upbringing as many of the Jews that I know in my area($). I also don’t have a degree. I do worry about how I may be perceived by the community because of these things (and the fact that I’m a convert).
I also worry about the dating aspect. I am now approaching my 30’s, and I would not want to be seen as less desirable because of those things, no matter how observant I may be.
I was just wondering if this is something that any of you experienced, any advice, etc.
