I am really happy that I registered at WorldFriends Networks
K.K.

I met a wonderful person through this service. At the moment he lives nearby, but soon he will return to U.S. When I was down, he cheered me up and supported me. He is a very kind and wonderful gentleman. I did not expect to meet such a nice person here, so I am really happy that I registered. Exchanging emails is really enjoyable and gives me energy. It is sometimes difficult because of the differences between our cultures. However, I really feel that there is no boundary between people with a good heart.
I deeply appreciate the chance to meet him here. He gave me lots of beautiful words.
I am really happy that I registered WorldFriends Networks.
