Yes, this really can work. On April 7, 2002, just after the close of General Conference, I sent an instant message through Encounters to a girl who looked cute. A connection was made instantly and three hours later, we both knew that we had found our soulmates. Over the next several weeks, we exchanged phone calls, letters and e-mails while continuing to chat online. In the middle of May, I left Washington state to meet her in Colorado and we knew that we wanted to be together forever, so on June 30, 2002, 12 weeks after we first met online, we exchanged our wedding vows. In my wildest imagination, I never could have hoped that there could be someone out there so perfect for me. Thank you, LDSSO, for allowing me to find her and make all my dreams come true.
