By popular demand, YG has agreed to be the official frumteens shadchan. We're all familiar with her success as a shadchanteh for several happy couples (including, I may add with a note of eternal gratitude, my daughter and her husband), and iy"h through this project she will be responsible for many more.
To access her services, please fill out the form below and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
She will take it form there.

why do some shadchan ask stupid questions such as "what color tablecloth do u use on shabbos" or"do u cover the table w/ a plastic table cloth?" or even"what type of shoes do u wear? (tie/buckle/slip-on)"
|who me?!||Posted - 22 June 2003 23:09

I don't know maybe there's just something wrong me but I simply cannot even begin to understand how anyone can be *that* shallow and foolish to factor such trivilaties into such a profound decision.
|yg||Posted - 23 June 2003 16:32
Please add 2 things- hometown and if it is possible to email a picture to me, that would be great.

yg- do looks make that much of a diff?!i heard this story where there was this woman calling around for her son and when she heard a girl was a size 8, she said "o im sry, my son is looking for a size 0" and she just hung up. now THATS what u call shallow

Well...even for someone who isn't shallow, looks do make a difference. "A man may not marry a woman until he has seen her, lest he be dissatisfied with her appearance and come to hate her" (it's a Gemora). I'm not saying that it's normal to look for a size 0 or anything like that, but (for example) if one person is very slim and s/he finds large people to be unattractive, it's best not to even try to set such a person up with someone large -- it'll just be a waste of both people's time. Many Rabbonim, in advising people in Shidduchim, have told their Talmidim not to be too "machmir" in "Sheker Ha'Chein V'Hevel HaYofi" -- if you can't deal with the person's appearance, out s/he goes.

burning- i am not only reading shidduchim to size 0s. and i would not read a shdduch to someone who was only looking for a size 0. but i need to know what you look like. i mean, i just read a shidduch last week and i never met the girl and after raving about her and how beautiful she was for a half hour the mother of the boy asked me- so how tall is she? she i hemmed and hawed and said, oh you know, average. then she asked what color hair she had. so i hemmed and hawed and said light brown because that was the most neutral thing i could think of at that moment. a dark brown, light brown and dark blonde could all be seen as light brown, right? but i was really unhappy to be put on the spot like that. so please dont tell me i am shallow. i will read a shidduch to someone that is thin or heavy, blonde, brunette or redhead, tall or short. but i HAVE TO KNOW!!!

Two additions to the YG Shadchan form:
1) Please indicate your home town,
2) If at all possible, please email me a picture so that I can honestly rave

Hey, guys, you should all be singing yg's praises. I'm more or less in the same matzav as her (not true, I have a minimum of 5 hours more per week available than her) and I am usually falling asleep by the time (or before the time) my kids are in bed.
So kol hakavod, yg, tizki l'mitzvos :)
