I have tried searching for a friend on the site, but cannot find her when I search by her aura colors. Why not?

If your friend is not “searching for” a woman, and you are a woman – then the site will not match you up. Your profiles and preferences must match. If she is “searching for” a man, she will not receive any women as matches. To find your friend, you will need to “Search” by user name. Or she will need to change her preferences to also “search for a woman.”
