Playing Cupid

Is it bad to play cupid and try and hook people up?


I have a friend who is a good guy, very nice. He plays semi pro football and is a big guy, 6'4" 300lbs. He has a good job, his own place, a license, a car etc. Honestly, he has pretty much always been a bachelor and needs some serious work. I am just wondering if I should try and set him up? Advice?

I would ask first. Some people just don't want to be hooked up. Others are desperate.

^^ agree... or just put something together so it is a casual meeting. Not really a 'blind date'.

How about throw a party and invite them both...then at some point introduce them to each other in a conversation type of a situation...not the "oh i have someone you should meet" but the "be talking to your friend as your girlfriend walks by and pull her into the conversation"...then act embarrassed and say "omfg! I'm so rude..so-n-so, this is so-n-so" then at some point (like you have to go to the bathroom) leave them alone and see if takes care of itself...

Mmmm.. Beefy football players!

I agree with the above.. I know for myself, I don't like being hooked up. But if you invite both to a semi-private gathering or outting.. then like Rec said.. it'll take care of itself.

I actaully worked with a really good friend who had the WORSE taste in women. Without asking I cruised CL and found the perfect girl for him. That was 6 years ago, they are still together. And I'd NEVER do it again. I'm with Sittin, just have a 'caual' meet and greet. Although if I DID find the perfect guy for Sarah...

tell what. If I found a stable, self sufficient man who had minimal bagagge and had the confidence to let YOU be YOU and accept your children as the most important thing if your life without feeling insecure about it, I'd do a meet and greet. I may die before this man is found
