What happens when you take a blob of something different and you force it into the cookie cutter world of shiduchim?

Once while typing A report for school, I suddenly felt Like a real big fool.
I highlighted it all, Pressed backspace, And suddenly it was gone Without a trace! Now one would think Disaster had struck, But no, good news, I am in luck! Because at this Important junction, I recalled that the computer Has a nifty function,
Getting my work back Couldn't be more easy, I thought as I deftly Pressed on the ctrl-z.
And there my report Sat on the screen, While I smiled, Remained serene. Now google is getting Into the act, If a person is quick Enough to react. When sending an email And changing your mind, That little "undo" Is what you will find. You press it quick, And then you see, Your email's delivery Won't ever be! But we get a bit spoiled, Using these tricks, We start to expect there, To be that quick fix. And sometimes in life, We make a mistake, We do some things wrong, Or there's rules that we break. And we look around, Eyes down in shame, For we know deep down, This isn't a game. We know that we need That "undo" setting, But it's not there, And we start sweating. How can we attempt To abolish the decree? Where is our friend, Good 'ol Ctrl-z? But now it is Elul And G-d is calling. Yet here we are, We just keep stalling. So He says "My child, Come to me! Here's your chance, For life's ctrl-z!" It might look hard, But let me say, It really is, The easy way.
There are so many
Actions that we regret, And we haven't really, Repented yet. But at long last, What we've waited for, It's here now, Knocking at our door. Fellow yidden, It's time to grow, With the installation of Elul 1.0!
