AIBU if I play cupid?

(8 Posts)

We have an extension being built at the moment, so lots of builders/labourers/brickies coming in and out.

We also have a lovely lady who comes every Thursday to clean the house. She's a single mum, a bit shy, but absolutely lovely. I'm always at work while she's here, so I don't know her on a properly personal level.

One of the builders is absolutely smitten with her.
She was here on Thursday and he ended up phoning his boss for something else, but saying how gorgeous she was and how he couldn't even think when he saw her.
This was relayed to DH as the boss was a bit concerned he might have fallen for me, but it was absolutely not.

Both he and she are single.

Would I be unreasonable to let her know? I don't want to put her in an awkward position, especially as the builders will be here for a couple of months, but he's a good looking chap and she might like him too.

She's very dedicated so wouldn't take time out if cleaning to talk to him unless I nudged her a bit on it.

I think they would make a lovely couple, but I don't know either of them all that well and it seems quite personal to meddle.

How about leaving her a note to 'please remember to make the builders a cuppa today!'?

Oh that is so sweet. Is there any possibility that you could be around and invite them both for a cup of coffee?

I would meddle and say something to her. He's at work and cant approach her. He's been respectful so far and doesnt appear to be a mad axe murderer.

Of course why not tell her and gauge her reaction? I wouldn't do anything more without her say so though.

You could drop a very vague hint to test the waters, and see how she responds.

Very, VERY, vague tho. Especially as she's shy. It would be a bloody shame if she was made to feel uncomfortable doing her job by unwelcome male attention.

Agree that I need to be very vague. I'll be home when she's here in a couple of weeks so I'm sure it can wait until then. I will update you all!

I am single and would love it if someone would play Cupid for me!
