Let's say you know a Peter/Sarah and your mom or dad says "I think Peter/Sarah is great for you! The/she is so smart and good looking, you should totally go out with him/her!"
Even though Peter/Sarah is cute and pretty successful, would your parents pushing you be a turn off? Would you start to dislike Peter/Sarah for the fact that they are being pushed on you?

My mom wants me to date my best friends Lawrence and Avery. She's been calling them "her sons" for the past 6 years. But sons is all they will be because I brozoned them for a reason. Lawrence is fine but Im just not into him like that. Avery is funny but nahh. They both bros... like blood bros0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

It would only be a turn off if they were too pushy. Your parents can give you better advice than most people for almost anything. *** However, on those sorts of things they tend to be right on the big picture , but sometimes wrong on the smaller things like chemistry. You should seriously consider whether the person they are suggesting COULD be right for you and try things out with them if applicable.
I would have 2 questions:
1. Why do your parents think this person is special? (Does their reason matter to you)
2. If they don't provide some high level reason like: He / She seems like someone that would spend a lot of time making their partner happy.
- Why don't your parents trust you to notice "Jane looks cute"
(Which means they like Jane's parents and don't care whether Jane makes you happy.)
*** Some parents want to control your life. This is not called parenting. It's called losing touch with reality.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
