It’s tricky enough to meet suitable, compatible people once you’re over 40, and when you factor faith into the equation, it can seem an almost impossible task to meet someone to whom you’d actually be attracted. LDS singles, in particular, have often suffered from a dearth of effective dating sites for them, and if you’re one of these singles, you’ll be delighted by LDSPlanet.com. This site is very much geared to the requirements of those who consider the Mormon Church central to their lives, offering the full range of customary dating site features, including flirts, messages, live chat and more.
Although LDSPlanet.com isn’t exactly bursting with quirky and individual features that you’ve never seen on a dating site before, it does stick diligently to all of the basics and does them extremely well. Log into the site for the first time, and you’ll find suggestions of new members in your area. By browsing onto a user’s profile, you can also read their feelings about the church and their other interests in life.
You, too, can maximize your chances of finding someone by properly completing your profile, including answering the various preset personality questions like “Do you enjoy cooking?” and “How patient do you consider yourself?” There are also questions that you can set for other members to answer when they get in touch with you, including “Do you like to stay in shape?” and “Do you like to read?” There’s even the option to upload a video or audio to your profile, or pick out several ‘Top Interests’ giving further insight into what motivates you in life.
At no point are you forced to upload a photo or even asked for your first or full name, so you can be as difficult to identify as you like. In addition, the site has published a series of dating safety tips and urges users to report any suspicious activity or behavior.
Navigate to the homepage and enter the requested essential details, including your gender, the gender of that special person you seek and the age range in which you are interested, as well as your zip code. You’ll then be directed to a page requesting additional details, including a username and password, followed by a prompt to tell the site more about yourself, including your height, ethnicity, body type and more. You’ll also be asked questions about your Church activity and your feelings about the Church. There will also be a prompt to upload a photo, which – if not mandatory – is certainly recommended if you want to get more dates.
To see who’s flirting with you in addition to sending unlimited messages, there’s only one thing to do: upgrade. You’ll save almost 50 per cent by opting for the six month option over the single month package.
|OPTIONS||TOTAL COST||COST PER MONTH||SAVINGS|
|3-Month Membership||$36.97||$12.32||27.5% ($14)|
|6-Month Membership||$53.94||$8.99||47.1% ($48)|
This is by no means a difficult site to use, even if you’re an older Latter Day Saint who has never used dating sites before. Everything is very logically laid out, with the site’s left hand sidebar, for example, giving you access to your Inbox in addition to the site’s many search options and even links to community features like live chat. You can even find dating tips here. If you need to edit account information such as your location info, password or preferences, you can easily do so via the My Account link at the top right hand side of the page.
Merely clicking the Search tab at the top of the page gives you a wealth of new profiles to peruse, but there are plenty of options for delving deeper if you’d like to do so. You can see who’s online right now, for instance, as well as who has viewed your profile. Alternatively, perform a search by location and age, or narrow down the list by such parameters as height, status and ethnicity. With search options like these, we’re sure it won’t take you long to find your dream LDS man or woman.
