It was nice to have a “second opinion” on David – all thought he was terrific.
Motzai Shabbat we went on a date—finally alone together—and we asked and answered the kind of questions one would generally ask on a shidduch interview first date.
They are generous in sharing their story, because they hope it will may inspire marriage-minded singles. I checked out her profile and she sounded interesting but she was far away in New York.
You don’t need to be a practicing Jewish person, or even Jewish, to gain ideas from their example for progressing from single-to-married. Just then I got a note from her – and I realized she might be interested in me.
I had just broken up with someone, and was “available.” So was he.
He said he was ready to date me for tachlis and asked if he could come in to NY to meet.
I liked his answers and thought there was potential. Here I am meeting this nice woman for the first time.
I drove him to the airport on Sunday afternoon and he didn’t indicate whether or not he would call me again. We had a fabulous Shabbos with the best food I ever had and I met her wonderful loving family.
On Motzai Shabbos we were at a romantic outdoor garden on the banks of the Hudson River, sipping drinks, and Judy mentioned that she knew someone I had dated in the past and had some questions. I was surprised at what a small world it is and that everybody seems to know each other.
We had some discussions and decided to think seriously about where the relationship was headed.
Two weeks later, around the first of Adar, David called me and asked me to marry him.
