I think its a little strange, but it depends on the relationship you and your sister have. If my sister did that for me, I would  be insulted. I would assume that she thinks I can’t find guys on my own, so she needs to help. You know what I mean?

I wouldn’t do it without your sister’s permission… That would be a bit rude in my opinion. I know that I would be at least a little upset if my sister went online to hook me up with some guys without me knowing lol.

@iheartnerdyboys:

YES.

1) I think it’s deceptive to talk to someone who is I assume seriously trying to find someone when YOU are not.

2) Your sister may or may not be open to online dating.

I do understand where you are coming from though. I felt the same way about my BIL and prodded him for months before I got him to agree to let me set up a account for him. With his approval.

i say try and get your sis to sign up herself – i have a couple friends who have met online and have married or are engaged – i can think of 4 people that i know of that this has worked for them.

I dont think YOU should be the one to initiate it – what does that say to the other person about your sister ya know?  i say give her a push to sign up herself 🙂

I think you should let your sister do this for herself if she so chooses.

If I was your sister and I found out you were doing something like this, I’d probably punch you. 

Sorry, unless she asked for your help I think you should leave this one to her.
