SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Friends say Lance Archibald is a tall, handsome former college basketball player and graduate of Harvard Business School.
He also is still single at 31, and so they are hoping to speed things up with a billboard and Web site, www.datelance.com.
“I’m Lance! Let’s go out!” reads the billboard on an interstate near Lindon, about 40 miles south of Salt Lake City.
“It kind of came out of discussions we had, that Lance is such a good guy but not married,” said Morgan Lynch, chief executive officer of LogoWorks, where Mr. Archibald is the director of marketing. “Someone threw out the idea of getting a billboard.”
So why the concern over Mr. Archibald’s marital status? As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, whose members typically marry in their early 20s, Mr. Archibald is approaching the male equivalent of an old maid.
Friends say they are not sure what the Brigham Young University graduate and former Mormon missionary is seeking but tease that “it’s taking a little longer than usual for a guy with these credentials.”
