Here's some good news for any single people getting that LONELY Christmas feeling.  Your soul mate is less than two gallons of gas away.

According to a new study, the average person who's met their SOUL MATE found they lived within 41 miles of that person when they met.

Only 16% of people surveyed said distance was an issue when they first met their soul mate.

The study also found it took people an average of only three-and-a-half months before they realized that person was "the one."
