The best way to help is not to help in something of this nature. If a relationship goes south and **** hits the fan, with their perception of life here, they will forever hold you at fault. I would simply tell them no in no uncertain terms and tell them you moved here to retire; not be a match maker..

Believe me I have thought of that. I think I'll just tell her to try a dating site but be very careful. This is an exceptional waray family. Japanese filipino

It's just like with the money issues or anything else here that you are uncomfortable with. Just say no and then stick to your guns.
It may ruffle a few feathers but it will work itself out..
