    How do you deal with well-intentioned people in your life who try to fix you up with anyone with a pulse who happens to be single as well? As in, that is the only thing you have in common.

    Well, in this case I'm pretty sure the person my friend has in mind is in need of some ESOL courses

    Maybe I should clarify the question; this is not a person you have anything whatsoever in common with.

    Yes. I even said "Well, what do you think we have in common?" and she said , "Oh, he's single and you're single!" and couldn't give one answer beyond that. I asked "Does he know English?" (She is from Brazil and so is he) and she answered vaguely, "Yes...some..."

    You thank them for thinking about you.

    Then you hit them in the head with a shovel.

    Works everytime.

    Knowing english is a big factor.

    Having all their teeth is another.

    ask if the person enjoys long walks on the beach. Also see if they are into stuff. Thats usually a good place to start

    I'm pretrty sure that's how SKP found her husband. It was one of those sites.

    I've been single again for the better part of 5 years. I've always found that the people you meet my happenstance, are the ones that you have a better chance at clicking with. Maybe that's just me, but so far, it's worked for me.
