MATCHMAKER?

Hypothetical question:

If you have a dear friend, mature and single and wonderful, who is searching for someone (as yet un-met) who is also searching for a committed relationship with a mature and single wonderful person of the opposite sex, would you feel it was okay for you to play the role of...Matchmaker? Is such a go-between role legitimate, acceptable in the 21st century?

Fixing up single friends is an old tradition and still very appropriate. My mother always did this by having both friends to dinner--the same dinner, that is, and at the same time. This is a pressure-free way to introduce people to each other. If they click, they can take it from there.

Hi Marjorie, yes I'm all in favour of that old tradition. In this (hypothetical) case however, I'd first have to find the second half of that potential duo.
