I'm glad it had a promising ending!
I had bad luck with a couple of blind dates with friends of friends, and I once suggested a guy I'd just gone for coffee with might be a good match for my friend and man, was I wrong about that! (They met once when I invited him to join my friends out for dinner and she's had a poor view of my judgment since
). However, this same friend picked a guy's profile off a dating
site and sent it to me, I e-mailed him, and voila! He is my now-DH.
