  •  What a great idea! (8+ / 0-)

    I would sign up to be a matchmaker, but I have a 100% matchmaking record and don't want to screw up my perfect record...

    I set my two best friends up on a blind date nearly 20 years ago (one was a childhood best friend, the other was an adult best friend, different towns, they didn't know each other), they ended up marrying, and just had their first child last year.

    That was my one and only time taking a crack at matchmaking, but I just knew they'd be perfect together, and I was right.

    I love to show everyone pictures of their daughter and brag that I always knew I could produce an adorable baby, and my way is so much cheaper, easier, and less painful than the more traditional means of reproduction. :-)

    I love the idea of matchmakers, because quite often it seems like someone a step back from the situation can have a better perspective than you do yourself.

    For instance in my friend's case, neither was what the other would have described as their "type", if left to their own devices they would have never even met, much less dated, but I knew them both very well and knew they'd hit it off if given the chance. Although if I am being truthful I never in a million years thought they'd end up spending their lives together, I was just hoping they'd have a fun date, and knew they would  become great friends.

    Anyway fantastic idea and I wish you all the best with your site!
