As some of you know, I’m very passionate about matchmaking and try to set people up. (I’ve got 1 shidduch under my belt!) I’ve written about this in the past, and while people have been sending me their information, I often find key parts missing.
I understand some people despise “resumes/profiles” (I like to call it information by the way, not resumes). I understand people hate labels and labels are all relative anyway. I understand. Think of it this way, and this is what I always say to my singles: I don’t know you. Pretend you are one of many, many stars in the galaxy. You look just the same as the next one. What differentiates you from the next star? Even if I get information stating where you went to camp and 500 references (almost not an exaggeration!) and what you do, I still don’t know a thing about you really. As a matchmaker, shadchan, go between or whatever I’m called, my goal is to reach out and look at you as an individual. I need to know what you’re about. I need to know what you stand for religiously. That, I believe is of number one importance.
I take each individual and really try my best to get to know them and what they’re looking for and match them up with who I think makes sense. I am non-judgmental and understand many realms of the Jewish spectrum. I have single men and women I work with and I’m looking for more :) I am most familiar, and have worked with, modern orthodox to yeshivish types and anything in between. It’s all labels, I know, but if you or someone you know can be placed loosely within those categories, feel free to contact me ;) Age range is until 50.
If you or someone you know would like to contact me, please do so at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re sending me info, you MUST include a pic. If you prefer that it not be sent to another single, please say so. I am a visual person and a picture helps you stay in my mind. While additional details might be interesting, I will not go forward without a brief description of what the person is about and looking for (religiously). I know many people are hesitant or even unaware of the importance of this, but to me it’s crucial. Please note, we will talk over the phone so you can be sure I understand what you are looking for. Please include a contact number as I will try to reach you.
I have been a “matchmaker” on large sites such as Saw You at Sinai, YU Connects, and more, but I prefer knowing the singles more intimately and having more control over of who I set up when.
If you are not single and think this doesn’t pertain to you, then please read this post.
