A little OT, but inspired by the post above:

I once redt a girl to a friend of mine who I thought was a perfect match. My father made the suggestion to the boy’s mother, and I waited to see what they thought. Imagine my surprise when the boy’s mother called back, deeply hurt that we thought so poorly of her son because of the “skeletons” in the girl’s family’s past. (I later learned from their son that because both of his parents are Baalei Teshuva, they are very sensitive to perceived insinuations that they are somehow less qualified than others.)

I called them the following day to inform them that I vehemently disagreed with them and only mentioned the name because I thought it was a great shidduch. Being somewhat impulsive, I wanted to find a way to show them that I redt the shidduch precisely because I thought so highly of their son.








Long story short, her name was Shevy.

Nu? Did they reconsider?

Long story short, I married my sister.

LOL, let's just say that my wife is just a tiny bit shorter than me.

Long story short, my future FIL, a shadchan, and I used to daven mincha in the same shul. Apparently one day this shadchan was discussing how terrible my shidduch prospects apparently were (not that he had redt anything to us before, but whatever) because even tall girls were saying I'm way too tall for them (that part was true). So my FIL told him that it's a stupid reason to say no to a boy, at which point the shadchan said "Really now? I'd like to see you let your daughter marry him".

And the rest is history.
