Thank you for printing the story on Mormon singles (“The Church of Latter-day Singles,” 7/29). My girlfriend who lives in Washington called me about this, and I’m so glad she did. I’m a single Mormon girl living in Kentucky. The dating ratio here is about 10 to 1, and there are reasons why the one guy is single. It’s hard being part of a group that considers you a complete failure unless you are married—the truth is I don’t miss the laundry.

Keep up the good work.

(This is the first article about Mormons that I have ever read that included the word “fuck.”)
