Have you ever tried to matchmake people?
Well I haven't intentionally.
Anyway, just to share a story, or rather my experience about matchmaking.
One fine day (hahhahah..like a start of a fairytale), a friend(guy- lets name him Mr Q), came to us asking for a help to introduce him to some of my friends. He told us that how he envied us(me and my hubby), seing us being happy together, etc, etc, and how he wished to be the same.
So, I said, I'll try. I asked for my friend (Ms.O) permission whether she agrees for me to give Mr Q her number.
To make long story short, Ms O agreed, so they met, and started dating, etc, etc. And started planning of the future.
Yes...seems like a beautiful love story, right...wait til u read the rest.
When Ms.O started to have feeling towards him, he dropped the bombshell. He felt that's it's time to tell the truth. He was married and have a kid. He and his wife was in the process of finalising their divorce.
Ms.O was heartbroken. It was a shock, to her and to me (as I have no idea about it either).
Yup, Ms.O just couldn't accept him...and that's it, there goes the relationship.
I was full of guilt. I felt like it was my fault to cause Ms.O such misery...i introduce them right.
If I knew he was a divorcee, i would have not.
Eventhough this happen more than a year ago, the guilt is still in me. It still lingers in my mind from time to time.
As for Mr.Q, he remain single, he promised than he won't find anybody else to replace Ms.O in these few years time.
And for me...that's it about me being a matchmaker.
Anyway, if you want me to introduce as friends, still can....hahahahha :D
