I mentioned a couple of posts ago that a guy called a friend to ask about me, but insisted on remaining anonymous.
He wasn’t completely anonymous, though. Based on his questions, I pegged him as dead-on yeshivish. And based on his area code, he was apparently from Monsey.
And I have a problem with yeshivish guys from Monsey.
Someone who self-described as “yeshivish” solicited a friend on a (admittedly skeezy) Jewish dating website.
Now, whenever I hear about a possible match with a yeshivish guy from Monsey, I wonder: could that be him?
I know this soliciting sleazebag is about 31 years old. I know he still lives with his parents. While that’s not enough to identify a secret skank beyond a shadow of a doubt, it’s enough to cast a shadow on a very small population subset.
Is that good enough reason to refuse to go out with 31-year-old yeshivish men from Monsey who live with their parents?
