When God Closes A Door

Filed under: Dating,Personal — by teofilo @ 11:18 pm

My mom and I have been going to Friday night services for a few months now to say Kaddish for my dad.  For a variety of reasons, including my trip to DC, we hadn’t gone in about a month before tonight, so we figured we should probably go.

We got there a few minutes early, when people were still milling about in the lobby before going into the chapel.  When the rabbi saw us he greeted my mom then turned to me with an excited expression on his face and asked me, “are you interested in a girl?”  “I am generally interested in girls, yes,” I replied, and he proceeded to tell me about this girl that he wants to fix me up with.  Apparently he had been waiting for me to show up to services for weeks so he could tell me about her.  Since he doesn’t write on Shabbat, he said to e-mail him my number and he would send me hers.  I figure it’s worth a shot; his description didn’t give me a real sense of what she’s like, but it’s not like I have anything to lose.

There are actually several other things about this girl and her situation that are even more hilarious than the rabbi setting me up with her, but I think I should wait and see how things go before I say anything more.



  1. Awww. Go rabbi! It’s lovely to have people in your life who are thinking about you when you are not there, and plotting good things for you.
