    be honest

    NY Mom

    She will want to know all the basic pertinent information about you. Many people actually have this typed up and are able to hand it, fax it, or email it to whomever they wish. They have begun to refer to this as a shidduch resume. This usually includes name, address and phone #, information regarding education, family, employment, shul affiliations, Rabbis to whom you are connected, and some references – names and telephone #s of people who know you and can vouch for you, your family, and your good character. Oh…and the type of guy you are looking looking for.

    I think that covers it. You might want to get this type of info together before the shadchan comes.

    Hope that helps! Hatzlacha rabbah and may you find your zivug hagun b’karov.


    snowy: welcome to the CR! i see your new here! just giving you a heads up here–

    Joseph is being sarcastic, because of a bunch of threads on age gapes that we have here that go in circles!

    Hatzlacha & keep your head up high!


    Someone emailed me this as a basic outline for a shidduch resume- check if it covers everything.

    It’s important when you choose references be careful to choose people you trust and really know you well!! Also try to choose people who are good speakers- the key is that the people calling should be impressed with you!
