Have you ever encountered a brick wall while on a shidduch date?

My roommate is a serial shidduch dater, I don’t think I have ever seen anything like this guy – hopping around from girl to girl, in love one day out of love the next. I have many stories to tell and because he is an attention whore like myself he doesn’t mind that I tell them – unfortunately a lot of the girls he dates know who I am so I can’t be all that up front. Lets just say he has seen and experienced everything including the brick wall.

I never thought about this before, but the other night he was chatting on facebook with some girl and immediately after declaring her hotness I hear him scream “not another brick wall”, at which point he reenacts the conversation.

Where are you from?

“New Jersey”

What do you do for a living?

“I’m an accountant”

I hear ooh she has money from the other room.

What do you do for fun?

“You know whatever anyone else does”

At this point I hear some expletives and my roommate starts screaming at me about doing a post on these one word answer type of girls. I have encountered them as well, but I never even bothered with the brick wall analogy, I would just terminate the conversation call whomever it is who set us up and tell them that the girl needs some therapy on how to appear more exciting even if she is about as exciting as a brick wall.

Luckily there are men who are equally as boring as these brick wall women or else we would have a really new kind of shidduch crisis on our hands. And I know a bunch of you are going to say, “but he was in chat” and my response is that he says they do it on the phone on the date wherever. Oh and he is not dating timid 22 year old girls fresh from brainwashing at their local seminary. He doesn’t even like dating girls who aren’t divorced – says something I don’t agree with entirely about single girls, he says that if they have never been married at 34 there must be something wrong with them. If only he could convey that to other people in the frum community – because from my experience the frum community doesn’t take a keen interest in single mothers.
