I am the "hinge" in our relationship, and, while that is a good idea, it can only go so far. I have two strong-willed borderline introverted women in my life and at some point my efforts at facilitation back-fired on me - essentially they both told me to stop trying so hard and that if they want to talk to each other, they will!
Good idea in a case like your, though, and while everyone is reacting positively, I can certainly imagine it helping your situation! Glad that this seems to be improving for you!
