The Cupid Cabbie

Ami Angelowicz / April 23, 2011

Let me preface this for you non-NYC people by saying that most of the taxi drivers I’ve come in contact with are not all that friendly. Especially when I tell them I live in an outer borough. Forget it. I’m blacklisted before my ass even hits the seat. What I wouldn’t give to catch a ride with Ahmed Ibrahim, a NYC cab driver who plays matchmaker for his single passengers. The “Cupid Cabbie” is responsible for 19 couples that have been together for over a year. Hey, I think that’s better than Patti Stanger. If you’re reading, Ahmed, I need a ride. [MSNBC]
