Did you do something which none of them could have done? Did you need specialist knowledge from your hobby? Were you just passing and noticed their need? Did something attract your attention? Did they ask for help?
Is your hobby something done mostly by females? by men? Does it use something which might be carried by a woman? a man?
Is anyone else involved apart from you and the potentially grateful group? Did they all benefit to the same extent? One more than the others? Did you see any of them again?

ok not getting anywhere much with this... there was a male and a female, and the female was trying to do something, and your hobby (which mostly females do) helped her to accomplish this, which benefitted them both

did you just point something out? did you take something that was lying around and explain how it could help them? did they ahve something with them that could help them they just didn't realise? or didn't know how to do it?

Ah, then the girl was asking how to stop an argument with the guy? How to get the guy to notice her? How to break up with him? How to stop a breakup?

Your hobby is counseling girls in bad relationships? Are you a school counselor? You give advice as a hobby?

So you helped two friends get it together? And we need to find out how? Are lateral puzzles relevant? Perhaps you directed them to the LTPF, where they met and fell in love? Or did you give them some sort of puzzle to solve together?

*******Spoiler!!*******

I suppose that's good enough. Yes, with a little (emphasis on little, they would have gotten together on their own, but it would have taken longer) help, I was able to get my two best friends together. The cute antics of these two inspired me to think of my "dream couple"- the girl who asks me to help her get her love intrest who doesn't know she exists to notice her. My two real friends DID like each other. The boy in this puzzle didn't know her. Allllso, my real guy friend had already been thorugh two relationships, and my real girl friend hadn't, so she was a bit... shall we say, limited on her boy knowledge. And lastly... guys, to my knowledge, don't really do much matchmaking, whereas we girls like to say "ooh, he's cute, you two should so totally go out!" and the like.

Thanks for sticking with it this long, I figure it was kind of a silly puzzle, but I enjoyed answering questions. Look for my new one at the bottom! :-)
