I recently read a very interesting article in Time Magazine about the LDS (and Jewish) dating scene.
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.
(As a boy I was a science geek and always close to the science teachers, who were uniformly terrific.) Also, he’s got a thing for cult films, and I had to laugh out loud, because that is one of my daughter’s passions as well, so in that respect at least they seem well matched.
None of them was a hit, but the evenings were pleasant enough and she felt good about actually trying and putting herself out there. I called her just a couple of days ago to make Memorial Day plans, and in the course of that conversation I asked her how the online dating experiment was coming.From the article: Contrary to popular belief, the majority of Mormon men do not go on missions, which typically entail a mix of community service and proselytizing.Mormon men are being asked to serve missions at precisely the time in their lives—late teens and early twenties—when sociologists say men are most susceptible to dropping out of organized religion.The mainstream church no longer okays polygamy, and this is a sore subject so steer clear.11.In fact, to be safe, don't call a Mormon a Mormon... And yes, Mormons really aren't supposed to have caffeine, and I wouldn't offer them coffee...If you are actually able to distract them, I salute you, but otherwise, wait until they're 21!
