Just because your friend or family member is single, doesn’t it mean that you push other single or semi-single people on them, in hopes that they’d date. A for effort. F for execution. Ask first.
Sure, it’s nice to date someone, but it’s better on your own terms, rather than a friend or family member pushing another person on you, when your permission wasn’t given.
And definitely don’t push strangers from the bar on your single friends and family, because in most cases, it’s not going to be dating, and it’ll be a brief meaningless connection. Some of us single people don’t do hookups anymore, because we’re looking for something a little more substantial.
And for me, I get that the general intentions are good, but if I’m interested, I usually don’t need a wingman (or lady.) Others may be more shy, but still… get consent before throwing your single friends and family at others.
I realize people care, and want to see me happy, but I am actually happy by myself. Eventually I’ll be able to share that with someone else, at the right time. My happiness isn’t based on being with someone.
