Open call for set-up

I've blogged about being single and how hard it is to find a decent man to date.  I've even mentioned match-makers that I can not afford.  But then I realized...the best way to meet people is through people you know so why not offer those people something?  I realized I wasn't tapping in on the social networking sites to help find me a date.  So, I posted an open call to my friends that if someone set me up on a date I would offer them a reward.  If the dates turned into dating, another reward, if dating turned into marriage a HUGE reward.   I was optimistic that people would read it and think, you know- I DO know someone.  But I only received one response from someone who would keep me in mind...doesn't sound to optimistic.  I started to wonder, perhaps some of my FB friends hide my status (I do this to a LOT of my 'friends') so it is possible that many aren't seeing it.  I thought it was  a good idea, but I guess not.

Back to the drawing board.


  1. I looked at your bucket list and I think that by blogging you're telling lots of people your life story. And I don't think facebook is where I'm going to find mister right... so don't lose hope over one post. Finding someone to love you starts with loving yourself.

  2. Don't worry, I wasn't looking for a stranger on FB, just a quick note to friends that I haven't spoken to in a while that I was 'on the market' and to keep me in mind if they also have single friends. There is a bit of reassurance to date someone that knows someone you do.

  3. I totally didn't see it.

    But then again... I live in Oregon, so that doesn't help you too much! :)
