  • I had someone hook me up before, the relationship only lasted eight months until I basically started to avoided her. The girl I was talking to was hot, she had quite the ass. But that's about the only thing I liked about her, we never really shared the same interests, she was childish and shallow she didn't have aim in her life. It didn't help that she was Extroverted, I liked spending time going out with her but I never liked to chill with her around me, constantly trying to get my attention. She seemed maybe needy to me, of course it might be because I was introverted but it if you knew her you'd agree.

    The point is it hardly ever works

  • Only my trans friends. They tend to be self conscious wallflowers whenever we go out, so I'll get them into a "starter relationship" to boost their confidence. I always tell them not to expect these setups to lead to anything long term, just enjoy it for what it is while they build up their confidence, but to my surprise I ended up introducing two of my friends to their wives and one of them to her husband. I wouldn't be surprised if a fourth one came over this evening with her girlfriend showing off their engagement rings.

    I have set guys up, but they weren't single at the time. If I'm with a bi guy I'd call up one of my bi friends with benefits before I cut those ties and they'd usually hit it off.

    The last guy I dated I set up with a former friends with benefits, they were together for nearly our entire relationship (minus the months he hid that he was bi), and I haven't talked to either of them since we broke up but I hear they've moved in together.

  • Of course! If I see two kindred spirits longing for a connection, I feel almost obligated to lend a hand.
    Honestly, I wish people made that sort of an effort more often. It doesn't always work out - but you can often introduce an amazing couple, who would have otherwise either never met, or never introduced themselves.
    People need to do what they want. But we're a social species. It's nice to help, and to be helped.

  • "Setting someone up" implies you don't think they're competent to run their own sex lives. Just make introductions.

  • No. But when i was younger, one if my friends and her boyfriend set me up with one of his friends. All four of us had a day together. . It was a disaster. I didn't like the guy at all ! I didn't see him again after the first date, and my friends boyfriend wasn't happy. It caused tensions between us both for a short while , but i told him he had to accept it was my choice not to see him again , and that i wasn't gonna date a guy i didn't like just to make him happy

  • Done it and they ended up in 11 month relationship still going. I only do it if I think they have similar values and/or backgrounds. If one of them is "picky" I let them know upfront they may not be what they want looks at first. If both parties are willing to overlook this or other superficial things and try and get to know each other, it usually works out because they take it a little more seriously than if it's just some rando you meet on tinder.

  • No, but they're always trying set me up with the brokest, laziest, creepiest, least attractive person they can find, what's funny is they would never sate these people and i am better looking than they are, so if she thinks he's beneath her I wonder why they're always doing that, lmao.

  • Yeah, Mae do once in a while. It's normally someone we know who is kind of looking for either a relationship. We don't just set up or suggest someone to a random friend,. (if we do suggest someone we never suggest someone we know nothing about.)

  • For starters u don't know any single guys and secondly I don't want to be held responsible for anything he may or may not do.
    I've been "set-up" and it's uncomfortable.
    Especially when people invite you under false pretenses of just being friends.
    You don't know what you're friends will like and who they are with you isn't how they are with their partners trust me.

  • I don't set them up on a date and play "match maker", but I'd arrange an event or group outing where I'd invite a guy who's a coworker or friend from else where that I have in mind who may be a good match for a single girlfriend of mine.

  • No.
    People have tried to set me up and I hate it. It's awkward and uncomfortable. If I think they would get along, I would introduce them as friends. Then they can see where things go naturally, without the pressure of a "date."

  • I've been the go between when a couple of my friends were interested in each other but too shy to introduce themselves. I've never actively tried to play cupid, though. I'm not interested in playing couple's councilor anymore than my friends already ask me to.. I really wish they'd leave me out of it lol.

  • I don't know enough people to do so. And in some cases I don't want the responsibility so I wouldn't set them up even if I had options to do so.
    That said my best friend set me up with 2 guys and they always seemed forced in my opinion... Like they wouldn't have gone for me if she didn't intervene.
