UPS deliveryman does double-duty as matchmaker

UPS deliveryman Terry Spiers never has a dull moment working his route. That's because he works another job at the same time.

Terry has been on his Crown Heights, New York, route for 23 years, serving the same families. He says after getting to know them so well he realized he better start putting his connections to good use.

He's become quite popular as a matchmaker, also known as a shidduch, in this Orthodox Jewish neighborhood. He schmoozes with his customers every day.

After trying for years to make a match, it finally happened. Earlier this year, Spiers set up two of his young customers who just got married.

"Make a delivery at the house of Zevy Goldin, I said to the mom, 'Would Zevy like to get married? I have a nice girl for him,' and that's where it all went on," Spiers said.

Newlyweds Zev and Chana Goldin don't mind talking about their unbelievable story.

"People ask if it's a joke," Zev Golden says.

"Yeah, people ask if i made it up," his new bride adds.

"After shrugging him off several times it was his persistence that actually got us to actually go out," Zev says.

Spiers attended the couple's June wedding and their engagement party, and posed for photos with them.

"Somebody being nice and just taking initiative and talking to you and suggesting you go out somebody else you know you definitely changed two people's worlds," Zev Golden said.
