Are you looking to meet someone from the church of Latter Day Saints? There are a few websites out there which will help you to do so. Whilst some of those sites are open to Christians of all denominations, LDS Mingle is exclusively designed with LDS members in mind. As such you won’t need to wade through masses of Christians who have a different belief system from your own, saving you time and making sure you meet like-minded singles.
There are just two membership options to choose from: free, and paying. Free membership offers limited access to the site’s features, and to gain access to everything the site has to offer, you’ll have to upgrade. This won’t cost the world, though, and allows you to use the advanced search features. Before paying for the service, however, we would recommend performing a basic search to discover how many members are in your area.
Free members can flirt by sending “smiles”, which essentially let a member know you’re interested in talking with them. You can also send a message, although you cannot read or reply to messages or use the instant messenger, so you will soon become stuck.
As a free member you can read the message boards, which will give you a good idea as to the sorts of people on the website, and what they wish to talk about. In short, the free membership allows you to read the menu, but not taste the food.
There have been recent complaints that customer services haven’t been handling problems well. It’s hard for us to comment on this as often such complaints are based on one person’s experience, although we were a little put off to see that the message boards aren’t well moderated. Although topics do tend to be appropriate, we’d recommend picking a forum carefully, leaving if you feel uncomfortable. Similar problems exist on other dating websites, but we hope to see an improvement in the moderation of the message boards by the site’s team.
There are a lot of different factors to choose from in a search, allowing you to pin down your ideal partner, including specific religious elements such as whether or not a member is on a mission, and how often they attend church. Subsequently, profiles are in depth, with lots of opportunity to put your heart and soul into your answers to some interesting questions.
However, not everybody has taken a lot of time to complete the profile with lots of information, as the site doesn’t require you to answer every question. As you'd hope from an LDS-specific site, there are also several questions about your faith - such as your involvement with your church, your temple status and mission. This is a website that takes your dedication to your religion very seriously, as well as your desire to find an ideal partner as devoted to your faith as you are.
Members can take a color-coded personality test. This asks somewhat bizarre questions, but the results show what kind of person you are, and which members you might be suited to. Thereafter, it is easy to find members who suit your personality (according to the test results). This could be a little limiting as it could restrict who you talk with, but there’s nothing to stop you from contacting people outside of your suggested color range.
There are other LDS sites available for free, which makes it a competitive market for LDS Mingle. Whilst they don’t do a bad job, they don’t necessarily perform better than those free sites, so it’s hard to wholeheartedly recommend LDSmingle.com over other Christian dating websites. That considered, if you do find some members you like the look of, this isn’t a massively expensive site and has enough to offer to keep you busy.
