my grandmother met one of my frum friends and absolutely fell in love with her. Three weeks later, my grandma decides that my friend would be absolutely perfect for my non-frum cousin.
I tell my grandma "Um, he's not frum"
grandma- "so? he'll learn to eat kosher"
me- "Um, its not just kosher."
grandma- "for love he'll become frum"
me- "SHE wouldn't go out with him either"
grandma - "what, she's crazy like that?"
me - "its not crazy like that, they'd have nothing in common!"
grandma- "these days people are so picky"
Ok, my grandma, as well meaning as she is, really doesn't get it. You can't set people up like that. It's not like my cousin has any desire to even become frum. He's not even THINKING about it! What would the two of them talk about? How would they raise their kids? Its just insane, I don't get these older people.
