scarier than the undertaker, we are meeting the matchmaker

This has happened at least three times since I've moved to Columbus. About three different people.

Me: Something witty, intelligent, or totally off the wall. Probably about gnomes.
Person: Speaking of such and such, do you know Guy?
Me: Yes...
Person: What do you think of him?
Me: I don't think of him.
Person: Do you think he's cute?
Me: Why?
Person: I just think you two would be good together. I'm just sayin'..
Me: Okay. Thanks?

This is verbatim how it happens every time. Different guys being recommended. Different matchmakers. Same questions. Same awkward feelings on my part. And it always ends with "I'm just sayin'." What in the name of all that is good and holy does that mean? "I'm just sayin'." I'm not a mind reader. My estrogen card hasn't come in the mail. Please, please explain what that means! Am I supposed to go and pursue all of these guys now? Is it my responsibility to do so because you not-so-subtley name dropped them to me? Am I so pathetic when it comes to dating that I now need all of Columbus looking out for me? I don't get it. I'm just sayin'...
