My friend has been single for a damn long time, How long? actually he is still a virgin. And there came a good chance for me to set a date for him with my current colleague. As it's not my first time to fit someone to others, I'm so anxious to get it done this time being so afraid to fail again.I am just so expecting to see them becoming a couple coz both of them are quite nice and I do think it's workable for them to be together. Right after they finished their dating, I waited no second to asked how they felt towards each other. However my colleague's mouth was very tight saying'Not to tell!', when I gave her two options to choose, good or bad, still she kept her mouth shut, so I told her I would took her silence as good, then there comes her response:' you can just extend your imagination to whatever you think it is'. Gosh, what does that mean exactly, can any one help me to interprete her attitude, is she into my friend or no? come on, mylotters, help me! I m very worried to get them coupled.

I think that girl is not very into your friend, maybe a little, but not very much. I never set up a date for my friend, but my friend set up a date for me, I'm single, so they try to set a date for me, and after that I will tell my friend my feelings, tell them what I think about that guy, it's a little hard to talk with a stranger, we don't know each other, it's a little wired, and the whole dating seems a little embarrass.

Hey, I posted 386 discussions, and you only have 95, so that's the reason, and about this question maybe you should ask the mylot administrator, and don't say the F word on my comment, that's so rude.

This is funny. why do you have to put yourself in this. Having a relationship must come from the heart, not from people that will insist you to other people. If you fail then that is not your fault. It was really never meant to be. If they will be a good couple then that is good, but if not you dont have to feel that you fail. What she meant was, not because you see them to be good couples that means that they will be enjoying each others company. You failed maybe because the one you choose for your friend is not her type. So let her find her own relationship you dont have to find someone for her.

That is very sweet of you on being eager to find someone that will make your friend happy, but that is not your responsibility. You can only do this if that friend of yours asked help but if not then you dont have to do it. If it is bugging you that your friend stayed single for a long time but he does not look bothered then there is no point for you to be interferring in his affairs. I am just lost is this friend of yours a girl or a boy. I am mixed up already of you using she and he.

That means a 'no'. If it is a good match, she would have told you of her experience. Perhaps she was just trying to be nice to you and not to mention that it was not something she was excited about. She might had the fear that you would tell your friend what she would say to you. So, in order not to make the whole situation a mess, she preferred to keep quiet. I think it is best to leave the situation alone. You had done your part to get the two of them to meet up. The rest is up to them. Cheers.

You think so? They probably not getting anywhere? I couldn't interpret this message. I just suck on reading woman's heart, and their little bitty hint. Why can't they level up with people and tell what they think? It is hard to guess what they actually thinking.

Well, he is your friend too. Imagine her position of saying not nice things about your friend to you. She might not want to upset you. So, it is best not to assume that she was trying to make it difficult for you. Just as said, let the situation flows naturally. If she likes him, she can tell him on her own.

Thankfully I have no friends in China, so I know you are not talking about me. However much you might be thinking it is good for you to hook them up, maybe they don't want it? I'm happy being single. I don't need someone else in my life. If some girl comes along, and things move that way, I'll find out when I get there. But there is nothing wrong with being single. Is it possible you are pushing to hard?

Not maybe, and I m 100% sure they want it, just so far not sure whether they are the right cup of tea for each other. I have taken my hands off it.

Hi Bill, You are a nice person. And girls feeling is a little strange. I think she is waiting for your friend's next invitation to go out again and know each other a little better. Becuase you can't tell much about feelings after the first date, you got to have 2nd, 3rd date so that they really know if they suit each other, don't push them too much, let them go nature and be themselves.

Too bad. That's a NO. It is just easy to say Yes if he is interested with your friend. I don't know what it is why you're so anxious to get your friend a partner. I understand that you have the intention to help but sometimes with your act or with what you do, you might hurt your friend's feelings and of other's concerned. Like what happened now, they didn't work out, your friend my get frustrated and might think that there is something wrong with him... I think Love will come naturally to your friend, if it's time.

Well, although I don't have such experience and I don't think I would do that like you, I still think that you're just kind-hearted and want to help your friend. The act you introduced them to each other was right. But after that, that's their own business and I think you'd better just let it be because this is not up to your will. But you can just still ask them how's it going. Just remember: in a playful tone.

Ain't you a little bit of overzealous about their relationship? You could just let them be natural, whether they like each other or not. It is their choice. You would know sooner or later. You already done a good deed for them. They should appreciate your good heart, and goodwill.

If you think you can help him, then it's alright. But you should be sure that this will be good for him. We all need somebody to help us a little sometimes! But also we can make the things worse. So be careful in what you're doing with your friend. Try to find what he really wants!
