Are you a Matchmaker?

In the struggles to find a mutual companionship, have you ever found yourself attempting to help a friend find someone who you think would be a good match? Perhaps despite your good intentions to make two people happy in a new relationship, it sometime turns out just fine or maybe it backfires. But whatever the outcome, I was wondering if you have ever found yourself being a matchmaker? Could you share your story; is it wise to get involved or is it an impediment?

Yeah, I've tried to do this with some of my single friends but I just don't know enough people to be any good at it.

No, no, no, no, no! Bad idea all around. Plus, there is nothing wrong with being single. I was a very happy single person for a good many years, and I would regularly have to deal with people asking if they could set me up with someone they knew, or wishing they had a brother I could date... or something like that. I was happy, I didn't want to be set up or be dating someone. I always said if I wanted to be dating someone or married right now - I would be! I never appreciated feeling pressured, or like I was some how lacking or weird or missing out because I was single.

I respect any and all single friends I have the way I want to be respected. Not by treating them like they have some disease I can cure them of.

I did a little bit in high school, but people came to me about it. I didn't do it for myself to be a Yenta. I just ... knew so many interesting people that serendipity sometimes happened. None of them lasted beyond high school, but that's the way it goes.

Pity none of them did it for me in return, despite my asking.

Never, though people always try to be one for me.

Not really a matchmaker. I have introduced people, but nothing beyond that.

Never... I'd feel bad if it didn't work out.

Yep, sometimes it helps a lot with the initial awkwardness

No, I think it's more like meddling than being helpful.

Only once, and it was not a match. They are great friends, but no romance between them.

I have a great friend who is single, with a good career, and a good girl! I find myself trying to find her a man all the time. She's just a little too shy!
