Can He Say No to Blind Dates?
Q: My buddy has a new girlfriend. We get along fine, except for her obsession with setting me up with her single friends. They're nice enough, but I'm just not interested! How can I get her to let up on the matchmaking? -- Joel, 29
Dr. Susan: Just tell her you're not interested, and say no and stick to it the next time she tries to set you up. Of course, mention this to your buddy, too, so he has a chance to back you up.
