When Victorya Michaels Rogers was single, a friend set her up with three men.
The first was great, and they dated on and off for a year. The second was wonderful, but, at 23, a tad young for Rogers, then 30. The third worked.
“She’s going to marry him — just watch,” Rogers’ friend predicted, correctly, that very night.
In the season of mistletoe and champagne flutes, when visions of chemistry and compatibility dance through aspiring matchmakers’ heads, it’s only natural to want to bring great people together, and dating experts say that singles in search of a serious relationship generally appreciate a thoughtful and tactful setup.
