You know this road needs to lead to posting a picture, right?

He already has, somewhat

Nah, doesn't compare to real life. It's not quite David and Goliath but not too far off.

It's not the size of the man in the fight; it's the size of the wife of the man

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.

But it still wasn't enough, so you decided to put your name on your DDF Avatar and signature because your friends parents are huge DDFers ;D

Inspired by this post:
Quote
... and while I met my wife through friends, I listened to some of my friends crazy shidduch stories and requests - my two favorites:

- Does he wear boxers or briefs?
- She needs to be a size 6, and read the NY Times and WSJ

#1 - a friend of mine was asked this question when he was dating
#2 - a friend of my mom's told her that when she had asked what her son was looking for.

Thankfully both have been happily married for around 20 years, so B"H it worked out for them.

- Does the family stack or scrape the Shabbos dishes?

Now that's an important question to ask. Just imagine not being able to stand going to the in-laws for Shabbos & YT due to said issue.  :P
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Best exchange I've heard of, "does he go to mikvah every day?"

It's the small things that often ruin a marriage.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Not a crazy question. 
It speaks to his level of frumkeit/ chassidishkeit.  And having similar values is the building blocks of a marriage.

Anyone ruining a marriage over things like this needs serious help.
