Thought y'all would appreciate the following:
I got an email last week with a Shidduch resume of a boy who literally lives in Yehupitsville.
Lucky for me, I actually have one friend who lives in the same small town across the world (no, it ain't Waikiki).
I call up the Shadchan and explain that before I contact this friend and start making calls, I just want to understand if the fact that she emailed me his resume means that he is interested and already gave a 'yes' or if she is sending it as a preliminary to see if this is something I would consider, before even approaching the guy. This was her response:
"SOS-of course he is interested-he just asked for a resume and photo first"
Keep in mind folks-this is guy lives in Far Far Away land and different timezone and has to book a (really expensive) flight to even get anywhere near a date, so when I received the response, I was a bit weary. He is interested but needs information?!?!?!?! How does that even work? He knows absolutely nothing about me-just my name, and that I'm a frum single and he sounds interested? There must be no gals in Yehupitsville....
