If you ask a group of couples how they each met, “through a friend” is probably going to appear somewhere near the top of that list. And it makes sense since getting to know someone as a friend of a friend is far less nerve-wracking than just trying to make conversation at a bar or the gym.
But just because it’s more natural to interact with a friend's friend, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you want to let your friends test their matchmaking skills on you. There’s an unquestionable difference between a natural attraction growing into something more and a planned set-up, which even under the best of circumstances can be both awkward and forced. So ladies, has experience been good to you in this capacity? Or have set-ups by your friends made you learn the hard way that it's just not your style?
