Are you thinking of playing #matchmaker for two friends that you know? Before you start planning their future, read my advice on +Women's Health magazine.
We’ve all been there: You really want to set up two people you know, but you’re not sure how the whole matchmaking thing works (and it's not exactly like you can invite them over to play spin the bottle...).
