I know an awesome single guy, Bob (He and I are casual friends but have never been interested in each other "that" way). The other day I was out with an equally awesome single female friend, Sheila, and since I was later going to a large social gathering (that Bob would also be attending) I asked her to join us since I thought the event would be something she'd enjoy. The matchmaking potential didn't even occur to me, which IMO is the way it should be.
Everyone had a great time at this event. Now Bob has emailed me to clearly express interest in Sheila, and he asked me if she is single, to which I replied that she is, and I added what a great person she is, etc etc.
I'm kind of excited for Sheila at this new development, that is, if it turns out that she shares Bob's interest. (At this point I have no idea whether or not she does).
Question: Should I tell Sheila that Bob had expressed interest, or might that wreck it for Bob? On the one hand, I kind of think that it has the potential to stimulate someone's interest if they know the other person is interested, and it might help things along. On the other hand, maybe I should keep my mouth shut and not meddle, and let nature take its course if it's going to. I don't want to make her skittish.
I think I've answered my own question. What do you all think?
