(Newser) – Concerned moms who constantly set up their single kids with—well, almost anyone now have a dating site of their very own. Geri Brin launched the “Date My Single Kid” feature on after many unsuccessful attempts at matching up her son Colby with, among others, “the saleswoman at the upholsterer I used to re-cover my sofa” and her dental hygienist’s friend’s daughter, she tells the New York Post.

“All the kids have to do is roll their eyes and blame mom for getting them involved,” she explains. Colby, 31, pictured looking appropriately embarrassed in an accompanying photo, doesn’t seem too upset. “She has perseverance,” he says. “I can picture her on her death bed choking out the words, 'Colby, did you call that girl?' before fading into darkness."
