If you are a Mormon single affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, than ldsmingle.com is probably going to be a good place for you to meet like-minded singles. LDS Mingle is a place where LDS singles can go to meet each other in an easy, comfortable way.
To sign up, you only have to answer a short series of dropbox and multiple choice questions that are typical for most dating sites, including questions about your height, hair color, ethnicity, and other characteristics. There are also LDS church-related questions, such as your level of church activity (one of the options is “I go if it isn’t at 9 in the morning”). You can also include a paragraph or two about yourself and what type of person you are looking for, if you wish.
Later on, you can decide if you want to round out your profile a bit by adding a picture or completing a multitude of other questions, all which give other members more insight into what you are all about. You can also take personality profile questionnaires, which easily sort you into four different colors (blue, red, white, or yellow) based on your personality traits. This can be a good way to compare your personality with other LDS singles.
You can create a “wish list” that allows you to select the qualities of your ideal LDS match. LDS Mingle also lists nationwide upcoming singles events of many different types, so that you can get involved at a local level, as well. The main page once you have logged in is streamlined to give you all of the information you need, such as recent activity, cards, sparks, who has viewed your profile lately, and your favorite users.
What are cards and sparks? They are ways to start a conversation or connection, even if you are not an upgraded member and can’t send e-mails. Cards are greeting cards (upgraded members can personalize them), and “sparks” are dozens of different questions, from which your potential match can select one of many answers. You can also send “smiles”, which are basically a variety of pre-written messages and sentiments to show your interest in another LDS single.
No dating site is complete without a good search function, and LDS Mingle allows you to search by a number of fields, including according to answers to the “question of the week”. This means that you can see what other singles think of the week’s question, including some such as “what is your favorite vacation spot, and why?” If you prefer a traditional search, you can “hide” profiles from future searches if you are not interested in them, and then they will not show up in your next search.
You can also add friends to see when other LDS singles are online easily. Upgraded members have a number of added benefits, including chatting with other LDS singles, starting instant messenger conversations, sending as well as receiving mail, and participating on the message boards that the site offers.
Another feature that LDS Mingle offers is “photo shuffle”. This feature shows you 35 thumbnail pictures of LDS singles of the sex you are interested in. You can click on any one of them to see more information of the singles that catch your eye, or you can click “next”, and see the next 35 randomly selected pictures.
All in all, LDS Mingle is a site that provides LDS singles with a number of options for finding someone special to add to their life. If you are an LDS single, you may find that ldsmingle.com is a good place for you to try out.
