Social graces

I love Klarinka's sober wisdom. I have been also laying off the sauce this week, due more to fear of wicked hangovers than trying to save money. But I haven't found enlightenment. Damn. Anyways, I have a Miss Manners question about blind dates. A very nice family friend has been trying to introduce me to her cousin who lives in the same city I do. However, he's 55; I'm 27. I don't think she quite realizes the awkwardness of this introduction. So she emailed last week to give both of us each other's emails; neither of us has written back. But I'm afraid it would be rude to not write something because I know the next time I see her she will ask if we got in touch. Awkward....
