It's fine to "hook people up" if they ask you to, but i have to say i hate it when people are constantly pushing you. For me sometimes it's "leave me alone!! i didn't ask for your help! I'm perfectly contented single here whiling away the hours contemplating my loneliness and crying in the hot shower!" ......hahaha but seriously i get annoyed when my friend bugs me about some guy who i didn't realize existed until she says something about him.

If someone found someone that was a perfect match fine. Just don't hook me up with your cousin because they got dumped.

Personally, unless I'm married I don't think I would ever play cupid.

I don't think I'd ever play matchmaker for anyone. No one's ever tried to help me, so why should I bother? Even if I did see a good match in a couple right in front of me I probably wouldn't say or do anything, most likely out of bitterness.

Haha, yeah I know what that's like. A lot of people have good intentions, but it's a bit insulting for a friend with a sister/cousin/girlfriend/etc. who just has been dumped and is a total wreck, and they want to hook them up with you as a "rebound boyfriend." Like you're some Home Depot guy that needs to fix her up or whatever.

It's been awhile..lol

I've been in this position plenty of times in the past. Now much less often because I tend to keep relaxed and under the radar amongst my friends. Apparently it has something to do with how well I understand others and approach a situation, especially if the people I know are the ones interested in each other. I don't mind easing into that role every now and then if its needed..but there is a person that needs that "love doctor" role much more than anyone I know lately -- myself

I have a friend who keeps on playing cupid for me. ==''
I cant say I hate what she's doing but.....

Mmm, I like to voice my opinions on relationships, but I'm not going to go all out & play match maker, set up dates and push things forward. Plus I'd feel like I was meddling.

If the relationship goes bad, I'd feel responsible/guilty. If its really meant to be, they'll get together on their own and they'll be much happier imo.

I don't do it because I hate it when other people try and play match maker for me. Which hasn't stopped a few of my friends from trying.

One of my friends tries to set me up with every female he knows (and by knows I mean met once) and another who has gone through great lengths to "find my perfect soul mate" despite the fact that she has no idea what i'm really looking for. Then there's the constant complaining about my relationships they do because "oh you can do better" or "you know that this relationship is going to fail right?". Yes I know I haven't had a relationship that didn't end in a train wreck in years, did you ever stop and think that maybe I like things that way? I don't need you idiots playing Hitch for me when i'm perfectly capable of finding my own crappy relationships.

Well that therapeutic, I feel better now.

most my freinds are out there and very social. They are either the type that drinks and party 4 times a week for the guys
and the girls are just..guy magnets. I dont think I have ever hung out with them somewhere public and not have at least 3 guys turn back to take another look. I do have a few friends who are not as popular and well .. even if I introduce them to my other friends they are quickly ignored. it's not that their ugly or anything..it's just too much of a social gap difference.

set u up with females?
Posted 9/23/12
Being set up is pretty annoying, especially if they are trying to do it on the sly. I won't even give a girl a chance if someone is trying to set me up with her. (much to the annoyance of my 'friends' who keep trying to set me up)
