Itís common knowledge that Iím averse, if not downright hostile, to any kind of coupled or shared life, but still the hints and awkward introductions continue.

ĎDid you call so and so?í No I didnít. I might have if I was into drinking the Kool Aid and breeding like rabbits as my cousins do, but Iíd far rather go to movies, concerts and the theatre on my own (itís cheaper), eat like a bachelor and read my life away. Itís how I roll.
If this is really how you feel about even the possibility of a relationship (and it's perfectly ok if you do) then you would be kinder to the other half of the set up to simply say no. They might be hoping to meet their future partner and you would be wasting your time if you really have zero interest in such a thing. Either don't make the call or if they have the audacity to actually set it up without your consent then just make it clear that you will NOT be showing up. If you have the other person's contact then just be polite but firm that you were not party to it and, nothing personal but you won't be there and they should alter their plans.

The OP has been completely transparent that they are not interested in dating at all. The fact that you are encouraging two people to waste time on something one party has already made a predestined outcome on is ridiculous.
