I was visiting with a single friend of mine today and she said something interesting.
“Desdemona wanted to fix me up with her friend Jacko. The guy has no job, no ambition, lives with Desdemona and her husband, and has nothing in common with me.”
I had to smile in amusement. Desdemona equates a man with a pulse, and single status, and maybe a penis, as the someone who would be a great match for any of her friends. Those are the only three requirements. When I was single, way back when, she did the same with me. It drove me nuts. No I never met any of the guys.
She’d also leave out whether the guy was a Vampire, a Werewolf, a Zombie, a regular guy, or a serial killer. Things like job status, education, interests, personality, health. looks, and having a sense of humor, or even being remotely interesting would be pushed aside. All she would see was two people who she thought needed to be married. It didn’t matter who they married. That wasn’t important.
Friends don’t let friends hook each other up. Sure you can have a party and invite single people who might like each other but PLEASE don’t be a matchmaker for your friends.
This is nothing more than a short public relations message from me.
If you absolutely NEED to fix up friends ask yourself the following questions:
- Does that person have a pulse?
- Do they have a descrenable personality?
- Do they live with their parents?
- Do they have income?
- Is it legal?
- Do they like dogs and cats?
- Do they read? Can they read?
- Do they have any common interests?
- Are they matched physically? Yes, you don’t want to match a couple who is on the opposite ends of the looks chart. It might sound shallow but I’m just being real.
- Are they a Vampire (assuming your friend is)
- Would they make a good Vampire or want to ever be one?
- What about religion. That can get ugly.
- Are they prone to joining cults?
- What are their political views?
- Do they go out in the sunlight?
- Does one of your friends have a weird habit or trait that your other friend might find too weird or offensive.
- If they get together and break up will you lose two friend? Will you lose even one friend?
This isn’t rocket science. Think before you match up your adult friends. It is offensive when to try to match up friends or family members with a dud.
Again… this has been a pubic service announcement from Vampiremaman.com
