Today, the guy I'm dating took me to a dinner party at a couple's house. Halfway through dinner, I realized they were having the dinner party for the sole purpose of introducing him to their recently single daughter. FML

#18 its not that uncommon, I do that all the time. I have lots of people who I count as friends who are old enough to be my grandparents. they invite me to dinner every once in awhile. not that strange. As for them trying to set their daughter with him; he probably brought his girlfriend with him to show that he was in a relationship, without being completely rude to them.

My best guess is that the dinner party is with friends much older than him, probably met through something work related. They really like him and want him to be with their daughter. They invited him either not knowing he was in a relationship or knowing and thinking they mine as well meet anyway. Either way, I consider this socially acceptable. They are simply introducing their daughter, with the underlining intentions unclear you can't say there's anything wrong here.

Today, I finally agreed to having my parents play matchmaker for me. Might've gone great had the guy they were trying to set me up with not brought his GF. FML.

I agree with you.
There isn't any angle where Girlfriend would have deserved it unless girlfriend cheated and this was his revenge.
Except OP says nothing to even hint that's what happened and no girl would want a guy that brought a girlfriend to a get acquainted party at her home. She would be humiliated.
A)Either boyfriend wanted to stop the parents from bugging him.
B) Boyfriend hadn't a clue.

Either way a "you deserve it vote" = immature kids that shouldn't be on here voting like douchebags only because they can (they need more life experience).
Maybe they don't understand the story but I think it's mostly brats.
