Mormon dating made easy
And if they’re not declining dates with half-baked excuses and fabricated gluten-intolerances, they’re calculatedly ranking all suitable prospects with the warmth and love of a batch processing system. “To listen to these women talk about men as nothing more than objects on a list, without a thought of love, forever altered how I think about women,” Jon wrote, adding that this female-to-male objectification is of the same severity as its counterpart.An account witnessed by a commenter known only as “Jon” illustrates this type of “predatory” behavior: Engaged (holding her ring aloft): I’m so happy [fiancée] finally asked. “It might be different, but no less ruthless or demeaning.” Though we could all sit here arguing about whether or not this present “objectification” of men compares to the historical subjugation of women, we’d be forgetting that as human beings — but especially as Latter-day Saints — we’re to approach each other with love and kindness, regardless of race, religion, gender, or past offenses.When I moved into my new singles ward I made a list of four guys I would marry. Keeping all this in mind we’ve created a guide to better help young women notice when they’re being a little less than nice.The first one wouldn’t even talk to me, the second started dating someone else, and then I got [fiancée] to ask me out. [Husband] wasn’t my first choice but he has turned out okay. Being female in the LDS dating world is no easy task.Meet single Mormon adults like you - whether you are a single parent, divorced, separated, or have never been married.Whether you're Mormon or just looking to meet Mormon men online, you can use our filters and advanced search to find single Mormon women and men in your area who match your interests.Ryan Cragun, a sociology professor at the University of Tampa (who also happens to be ex-LDS) considers it an unexpected byproduct of the growing importance of the mission in the life of Mormon men; faced with the choice to serve or not (at a young age when they may not be fully ready to commit), many have chosen to leave.
I have a particular interest in this as I have a daughter in her late 30s that was widowed last year due to cancer, and she lives in Utah County.

In a church that requires chastity but a world in which random hookups are the norm, what about the plight of single adults who are well past the average Mormon dating age?
Or even more difficult, what about those divorced members who are committed to the law of chastity, but also facing the dating scene again? Prairie skirts and fluffy bangs look horrible on me (I know–I am dating myself).
