Setting two people up can be a tricky business. A lot of times we think about setting two of our friends up and we don’t know how to go about it. Introducing two people is all good, but that doesn’t always encourage two people to date each other, and everyone’s matchmaking skills aren’t the best. So if you are thinking of setting two friends up with each other, here’s how to go about it to make sure it is a success.
Make sure you know the two people well
This one is an essential point – you shouldn’t rush to bring two people together who won’t be a good match. You should know the two people very well, have a fair idea of what they like and don’t like to be able to gauge if they would like each other and want to date each other. Putting two conflicting personalities together will create an awkward situation for them.
Make sure the two people have common likes
To avoid a situation where the two people who are being set up have nothing to talk about, make sure that both of them have shared interests. This also assures that the two make meaningful connections.
Let them know the situation
Blindly setting the two up doesn’t help anyone. Let both the parties know what your intentions are and talk to each one of them about the other, tell them about the positives of the other person, and then ask if the person would be interested to meet.
Keep it casual
Don’t rush the two parties to date or to get to know each other. Once you have set up the meeting, let things flow at their own pace. You can check in with them later to ask how it went. Also think about introducing the two in a bigger gathering. Keep it casual.
