Being lds means that there are some things that you will do differently than others in standard American culture will. Regardless of your opinion of that, you should not put aside your own beliefs to follow those of someone else. Many have the opinion that they will not find someone who shares their beliefs. What they do not know is that there are hundreds of thousands of people looking for just the right person, just like you are, who shares their beliefs, just like your own.
Many lds singles face challenges because of their religious beliefs. Any of the following may occur in your experiences.
- Religious obligations; many find that those who say they are lds do not practice the faith as strictly as others do. This may lead to conflicts now and down the road.
- Feeling isolated from society. Movies, advertisements even television is filled with inappropriate context and that leaves you feeling left out and not part of the culture. You know those things are bad, but you still may feel like you are unable to date someone because you have ability to partake in those actions.
- You cannot seem to find others who share your lifestyle choices. For example, you may be a lds who does not work on Sundays and spends the day in prayer. You may be a lds who is committed to charity work and the church. You may struggle to find others who share similar goals.
