LDS Singles - Finding Love Online
One of the most challenging parts of dating for a member of the LDS church is that the religious orientation of the people you meet on a daily basis is not tattooed on their foreheads. If you live outside Utah, chances are the majority of people you meet with will not meet your number one criterion: being LDS. 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.
An alternate option for meeting LDS singles is by joining a LDS dating service (set up through the Church and available on-line). Although dating services were once only for those who weren't church goers, now there are dating services for every type of relationship, religious orientation, and ethnicity.
Depending on your location, there may really be a shortage of potential mates! If this is the case, you may want to try an online LDS dating service to meet people in other areas. 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).
Also, 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. You will find that most other LDS (especially church leadership, or the wives of church leaders) are very accepting of you and will help you when they can.
