I am very close to one of my Aunts. She has been divorced for about 25 years from a man that was physically and emotionally abusive to her and her child (my cousin). She has dated a little over the years, but she doesn't and won't make the effort to go out and meet people. I know that she would love to meet someone, but I think she's afraid of getting hurt again, or afraid that she is too old (shes 60) for anything to happen for her. She is a really fun, interesting person that deserves and wants to be happy. I don't know how to get her to meet someone, since she doesn't go out and I don't know many men her age.
Anyway, my cousin (her daughter) and I were talking about what would happen if we made her one of those Match.com (or other dating website) profiles. My cousin is willing to pay for it. The problem is, I don't know how to go about "finding" her someone on there, or setting it up so that the man isn't weirded out by what we are doing. How unethical would it be to set up dates for her with people and then tell her that we "know" someone who would like to meet her? What do you think? How can I find my 60-year old Aunt a man?
