I have two friends - "Carrie" and "Jim". Both are single, and have told me that they are actively looking for a relationship. Both have stated they would be happy to be introduced to someone new.
I think Carrie and Jim would be great for each other. They live in the same area, follow the same religion, have similar life values, and tastes (in terms of music, hobbies, etc). I would like to set up a casual meeting and introduce them.
The only issue is, Carrie has a hearing impairment. She gets by with a combination of hearing aids and lip reading. Her speech is understandable, but a little slurred. Her impairment also causes some mild problems with her coordination and balance, etc. Overall however, her impairment doesn't really restrict her lifestyle that much, and she gets by just fine.
My question is, do I need to inform Jim in advance about Carrie's impairment? Is it rude if I don't? If a friend was setting you up with a potential date, would you like to know about this sort of thing in advance?
