I don’t know why, but I love to play matchmaker.

Ever since I was old enough to understand the birds and the bees, I was trying to set people up. Sadly, none of these attempts were successful, but I put genuine effort into each one! Call me a romantic.

I suppose it goes without saying that Valentine’s Day is one of my favorite greeting card holidays. Even when I was single I loved everything about it — the hearts everywhere, the chocolate-covered strawberries, the potential to fall in love at any moment (or be stood up for a V-Day date — yeah, it happens to the best of us).

You could say the whole month of February, I walk around with cartoon hearts in my eyes on a mission to spread love.

Despite my inability to seal the deal on any of my matchmaking attempts, I think I have been a good sounding board for friends who are looking for love.

One of the most common problems I see is people judging potential suitors on the wrong characteristics. I’m talking about looks, job, social status, etc. Don’t get me wrong — those things matter — I just think they should be secondary criteria for assessing a mate.

I like to think that one of the reasons my husband and I mesh so well because we have common interests. We both like to exercise, spend time outdoors, and participate in many of the same activities (minus our disagreement on the topics of video games and furniture shopping).

Where am I going with all this? Well, if you’re single this Valentine’s Day, I want to help a sister (or brother) out!
