    Yes. My wife and I lined up our Maid of Honor and Best man.  They were engaged a few weeks later and have been happily married almost as long as we have.  The trick is (or was in our case) to introduce them and get out of the way.  If it's going to work, great, if it's not, you won't loose any friends if you stay out of the way.

    Yes.  Inadvertently in the matchmaking realm.  We were all music students back in the early 90's and I happened to be the common denominator among we 5 (6 was our "posse" but to this question 5 are relevant).  I knew the ladies as we sang in the same choir.  I knew the guys from rooming on the same floor with them, whom I got to know at first through that shared experience, augmented with my occasional blaring of Jethro Tull, Rush, Coltrane and Monk - and my espresso maker which sent "Damn!  Who's makin' that?!" essence all over the floor.  And I think the guys knew me as a pianist as well.

    An "oh my GOD, HOW MANY!!??" years later, they 4 freaks turned happilly married freak-duos - and number 6 who, musically, was more "in" with them than I eventually, as the other men were all SRT masochists who were doing required recording sessions at 2am on some near end-of term weekdays - is likewise happily married and they have 2 beautiful children. smile

    Yes! Two coworkers at my previous employer. I set them up on their first date. They got engaged a couple years later, married (I was in the wedding) and now have two beautiful little girls.
