Highlights from my meeting with the shadchan

So I was finally convinced into meeting a shadchan today. It was the only way my mother would stay a couple more days. So I turn up to the meeting, promising myself I will keep my big mouth shut, and behave. But I couldn't the dialogue below to see some of the great moments of todays meeting.

#1 Jude: I would preferably like a boy not from CH because I find the CH boys to be quite narrow minded
Shadchan: You mean you want the son of a shliach
Jude: No, I mean i want a boy from out of town
Shadchan: But the only boys who live out of CH are shluchims kids. Why else would they live out of CH.
Jude: Well I live out of CH
Shadchan: silence, shock, bewilderment

#2 Shadchan: So tell me what sort of boy you would like
Jude: Preferably one that can read and write for starters

#3 Shadchan: What is the problem with most of the boys you date
Jude: Well they smoke pot and go clubbing...generally not my scene
Shadchan: Silence, trying to figure out why one would smoke a saucepan

...and so the meeting progressed...Well I think I finally got my Mum over the shadchan visits...

I can totally commiserate!! I had my first Shadchan interview with my mother a few months ago. I even blogged about it - see the Reduced to an Index Card entry.

Same here. It was preceded by nausea. The whole interview consisted me of telling myself to shut up. And this whole thing was for what? I havent heard a suggestion yet!

don't worry there are tons of great guys out there not from CH that are well endgemecated, and not sons of shluchim.

I'm going to have to agree with Mendy on that one :). You should probably consider a new Shadchan Jude... ;)
