i was just wondering if in one way or another you experience a matchmaking, it could be that you are the one being paired to someone or you are the one who do that thing, i mean you are the matchmaker?have you experience that one of your friends create a scheme to pair you or to find a pair for you? what happened? did he/she succeed in getting a pair for you? lol. you know i have that same experience, in my case i was the one who is matchmaking. its a great thing. and i cant help but smile everytime i reminisce that good old days. there was this guy friend of mine who really likes my cousin, well can't blame him since my cousin is really pretty, she has a bombay feature since her father is indian. i use to create a scheme then just to bring them then just to bring them two together. i played cupid. lol. i even set-up a date for the two of them. if you will ask me if i succeed in bringing them together, well i think yes, my cousin fell in love with my friend too. they became lovers, and until now they are still together. not living as a husband and wife yet but i do hope that they will survive the test of time and in due time see them both in the altar. so do you have any experience like this one i shared with you, common share it, it could be that you are the matchmaker or the other way around.

Yes, I do. My friends consider me a matchmaker since I was in high school because I am fond of matching people. I do consider a lot of factors before I'll find a match for someone. So far of my being a "matchmaker", I have successfully picked some pairs that really ended up in wedlocks. However, as they say that matchmakers do have a hard time in finding their match which is quite true in my part.

yes, i have experienced being paired with guys...and would you believe it is not a matchmake done by friends...but a matchmake done by my family or relatives, or even the family or relatives of the guy...see how amazingly different it is?! but nah! none of it worked...there were so many dates and acquaintances done with the efforts of our families but i just don't find a spark with these guys! and though they do court me, i still don't feel the spark!

Not always forever! - wedding rings
My first marriage was basically 'arranged' by my mother and his mother. They introduced us when we were 16 years old and we dated for 2 years. When I got out of High School our families were having dinner together one night and the mothers starting making wedding plans!! When we asked who's wedding they were referring to they told us ours...of course...lol...so he took me into the living room and very romanitcally said "I guess I should ask you to marry me"...and I said "I guess the answer is yes"....we were so young and stupid back then. Needless to say 3 kids and 12 years later we were divorced. Way too young and not in love.
