Just take the L and chalk it up to that being how the industry is?

All - i need some advice. I am a 27M and there have been talks with my parents that they are going to ‘set me up’ with someone soon.

I have a few female friends who talk about how much they got to know their BFs before the knot. People who have gone through this, am I seeing things the wrong way?
