“How do I get my female friends to introduce me to their hot single friends?”

How do I get my female friends to introduce me to their hot single friends?

You flat-out ask them. Assuming you want this to be productive and not scattershot, you just talk to them. You say, “Friend, I just wanted to let you know that I’m looking for a great girl to spend time with. If you know anyone that I might like, I’m open to meeting her.”

The first step is letting your friends know you are receptive to meeting new people. Many times, people would like to introduce others, but feel that would be presumptuous or unwelcome.

In the conversation, describe some traits you are looking for, give an honest rundown of your strengths and weaknesses as a potential date, and say that you are willing to send a photo for her to show. Also insist on seeing photos before you agree to any meetings.

One thing to bear in mind, when agreeing to be set up: Your success rate usually depends on how well you know the broker, and how well the broker knows you. Otherwise you might get set up with someone completely wrong for you.

Finally, only do this if you want to start seeing one girl, and expect to spend some time with that one and be extra nice to her. Because all the friends will talk to each other. Do not screw around and do not treat her friend badly — or you will never get a second chance, nor will she ever forget it or let you forget it!
