Testimonal From a Yahoo! Personals member…”We met the next day…and have been together every day since.”

“In January, at home by myself and lonely as usual, I was playing on the computer and came across Yahoo! Personals. I signed up and responded to several local members. After two weeks of no one responding to my profile, I sent an Icebreaker to the first guy I had responded to. He emailed me back and we talked on Yahoo! Messenger for a while, discovered we only lived seven miles from each other, and met the next day at a local restaurant. That was on February 9 and we have been together every day since. He proposed on April 13 (my birthday) and we are getting married on October 23. We hope to start a family soon after. I hope everyone will find their true love one day as I have found mine.” — Sherry P., 29, Barnwell, S.C.
