    Ever played the Matchmaker

    My wife and I returned from LOS on Saturday to Oz.

    We have my wife's younger sister in tow for a 3 month vacation.

    She has launched herself onto a dating site on the 'net looking for a result.

    I am now being asked to vet the replies.

    The prospects so far would make DJPat and SP look like St Francis of Assisi.

    In fairness she is a looker, 35yo, no kids but the personality of a fruit fly and being generous 2% English.

    I can't help myself but I feel like an older brother protecting my sister from rampant males at the school disco.

    Any advice from our learned members?

    Tell her to meet folk in real life not on the net.

    Thx CJ, but the language barrier and her lack of nouse may be an issue.

    We are in Adelaide FFS where would she meet a crowd here?

    Maybe use her time enrolling in an English course while she is there if her English is shit, plus a way for her to meet people.

    Ask DJPat and SP to send her friend requests.

    Geography Balders Tsk tsk.
    Ballera is in QLD.

    She is a good looking girl - no kids - her arse would make a Sunday face for the mingers that DJ and SP chase.

    I'd agree with doing the English course. It'd be daft to waste 3 months and not get a reasonable grasp on the language.

    Sounds reasonable, however call me old fashioned but I may have reservations about welcoming potless Afghanis and Somalians into my gang.

    You never know she could end up rooting the teacher and you'd get to welcome a TEFLer into your gang.

    Hang out at local Thai restaurant. Bound to find a lonely bogan at the bar

    Regent Thai is one of the best thai restaurants in North Adelaide, Adelaide.

    Many decent Thai restaurants in Adelaide and Regent Thai is pretty good - no bogans there.

    However in 2017 that would not be the venue to meet a decent prospect.

    When were you last out on the pull?

    So you are writing her replies on the net then.
    I'd thought that the barrier would be the same on the and irl.

    2% english - tell her to join a Thai match site..

    Big sister writing replies, I am only enjoying the amusement. Neither have worked out that when a meeting takes place it will all go to shit.

    Tell the potential suitors to meet her at your ice making factory!

    Then tell her to give them the cold shoulder.

    Sorry I missed you last time you were here mate.

    Working in Bangkok at the moment with a new project.

    Best regards to you and your family.

    Let her get on with life. Enjoy it! Do what she please! Succeed in her endeavors. A gal doesn't really need a bloke to complete her life. If the right guy comes along... good. Being self-sufficient, independent and happy is important.

    And good on you for that. Look after her. You wouldn't want some smooth talking Italian jerk taking advantage of your wife's sister, would you?

    Wifey and I have done a bit of assisting. I wouldn't call it match-making, but vetting. Weeding out the dross.

    Sounds odd coming from me the atheist, but have you tried your local church? Good moral Christian guy, as long as he's not a fanatical nutter.
    Then there's the supermarket...single guy shopping for his TV dinners. Get her to trip in front of him...all the Hollywood ploys might actually work in Adelaide!
