LDS Singles: Finding Your Way Through The Dating Maze

Aug 17, 2007
Marriage is important, especially for Latter-Day Saints. Finding that man or woman you will spend eternity with can be difficult. But the truth is that finding a mate does not have to be so hard.

One of the most challenging parts of dating for members of the LDS church is that the religious orientation of the people you meet on a daily basis is not printed on their shirts. If you live outside Utah, chances are the majority of people you meet will not be LDS. You want to find a good Mormon boy or girl to settle down with, but it is hard to meet that special someone in your social circles. Although it may feel like your options are limited, there are steps you can take to meet more LDS singles.

One way to meet other single LDS members is to go to ward activities or other singles activities set up through the ward. Not only will it be more comfortable and you'll have more fun that way, but also the obvious LDS question mark will be removed. It is easier to approach someone when you already know you are at least in the right general neighborhood. On the same note, if you want to find someone that meets your other preferences - for example, if you are Hispanic, African American, Indian - then you may want to focus your activities on ethnic LDS groups.

The most recent addition to the whole dating game is going online to find your soulmate. There are now dating options to meet a wide variety of needs and preferences. There are several dating offerings just for LDS and still more for Christians generally.

Depending on your location, there may really be a shortage of potential mates! If this is the case, then going online is a great option. You can also make a point to join LDS organizations in your area to meet singles that share your interests.

If you have recently joined the church or if you are re-entering the dating world, you may not really know where to go or what to do. You may have already dated all the singles in your ward, you may feel that there is no where else to go, which is wrong. There are several websites that can help you (many of them sponsored by the Church).

You can always find someone to help guide you through the process. Find a friend or elder with whom you can speak candidly about dating, love, and romance. There is nothing like chatting with someone that has been in your shoes before. You will find that most other LDS are very accepting of you and will help you when they can.
