Thanks everyone for your replies! This person is a "her", and she is quite the busy body. The thing is, I just flat out don't trust anyone to set me up! I have in the past, and it's like people have dug up the worst possible people to be my potential "suitors". All your replies have been wonderful and I will apply some of each of them!
It does so often seem like this particular type of busy-body's only qualification for potential dates for others is that, possibly, the guy (or more rarely, the girl) is single! Sometimes they don't even check that part out very well...
I see you've met my mom's BFF, aka my second mom. She's tried that a couple of times, one was a disaster, the other, well, her daughter helped me weasel out! I've told my mom I think she thinks of me as her third daughter she needs to marry off!
One Easter, when my folks and I were at their house, she just happened to mention that the son of a friend was home for Easter, and perhaps after we ate her one daughter and I could "take a walk over" so I could meet him!!!! Don't know if his mom was in on the plot, if he even had a clue, and knew absolutely nothing about him, aside from the fact both he and I were single. I don't know, maybe he prefers men to women, maybe he's dating
someone, or maybe he's simply not interested. for whatever reason.
Thankfully, her daughter felt my pain, and we managed to divert her attention elsewhere.
