    Matchmaking

    What do you think of matchmaking? This came up recently when a group of my friends and I were talking. Someone we know is within a culture where a matchmaker has already set her up with a man and they have only met once. However, she hasn't a problem with the fact that when she turns 21 (I think that's the age she said) she'll be married to him.

    So what do you think of the concept of a matchmaker? What would you do if you were in that situation? If it wasn't a traditional matchmaker and you could choose, who would you pick to choose your future partner in life?

    Me...I would trust my mother, but only so far .^_^.

    I shudder as well. Maybe its because I dont trust it, I dont know, but I'd rather not get involved in that kind of thing, I'd rather meet someone the old fashion way, by going up to them asking them if they wanna do something sometime and then doing somethign sometime.

    Re: Matchmaking

    I'm a firm believer that marriage should be for love, and love alone. I won't go as far as to call matchmaking stupid, since there is logic behind it (and not to mention centuries of history).

    Besides, I'm sure there are plenty of lonely people out there who would love a matchmaker.

    Hmmm... He's not technically human, so it wouldn't really be like cannibalism...

    Re: Matchmaking

    I have no problem with matchmaking as long as a) they get a chance to meet first and b) they get to say no if they can't stand them.

    Fact is, arranged marriages (as opposed to forced marriages ie. those without the above stipulations) have a higher sucess rate then non-arranged marrieges. The difference? The level of commitment involved.

    I think it's stupid....because dating is one of the best parts of life to me so why should someone force you to marry and you will miss all the fun and experiences you gain. ..
