Well, if this is happening to you, that's a good thing. I think I'm not clear on this, are you HAPPY that people are doing this for you? Or are you not happy based on the fact that you don't hit it off with the person / people that have been introduced to you? Because that happens as well.

But if you would rather not be set up, simply say to the person or people who are offering "Thanks, but I'm really not interested in that." If they push you and ask why, say something like "I'm interested right now because I am just happy being by myself right now." If they STILL won't let up, tell them "NO THANK YOU" then walk away. You don't need people like that who like bothering you like that.
