When I joined LDSSO in 1996 there were under 30,000 profiles. I have found many friends that I had lost contact with, and met lots of people. I was pretty close to deleting my profile when I decided that one can never have to many friends, so I expanded my circle out of state and that was all it took!
Please do not let distance stop you. When the Lord wants something to work, he will open all of the doors that are necessary. I am so grateful to LDS-Singles for being the vehicle for me to find the love of my life! We will begin the first day of the rest of our lives in September, 2000.
