Our Review

LDS Singles is a dating site made for Latter-day Saint (sometimes called the Mormon Church or LDS Church) singles to help them find partners within the Christian circle. 

The site claims that unlike other dating sites, faith and values are built into their member community, with each member being more than just a profile box you check in your search filter.

The site is very particular with a new member's church activity like other LDS dating sites. It claims to bring you a compatible match, putting significant weight on beliefs as a compatibility factor. 

Despite this, non-Latter Day Saint Christians can still create an account. During the registration process, you will be asked about your church activities, but some options will fit you if you are not a part of the Latter-Day Saint church.

Whether you are looking for a friend, a long-term relationship, marriage, or marriage with kids, this could be the dating site that will answer your prayers.

But are these claims true? Does this site live up to its promise of providing a safe dating space for Latter-Day Saints? Read on below to find out.

LDS Singles wants to bring together Christians singles particularly those who belong to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints or more commonly known as the LDS Church or Mormon Church. This church was formally organised in western New York during the 1830s and has spread to different continents ever since.

You don't have to be a member of this church to create an account. Even non-LDS church members are allowed to join the site as long as they are Christian by faith. LDS Singles is one of those dating sites that factor in faith and personal values in matching their members together, so you are required to disclose information about your religion.

The site also implements a strict security feature to keep fake profiles out of bounds. They do this by tracking your location and reviewing your contact detail such as your email address to make sure that you are a real person. Being scammed or encountering fake profiles is a lot less prevalent on this site compared to others.

Signing Up

LDS Singles Signup
  • Creating an account takes only a few minutes
  • You must verify your account before you can use the site
  • Uploading at least one photo is required during registration
  • The site takes information about your location
  • Basic info needed includes email address, birthday, and gender
  • Important notice about dating safety pops up after registration

You can only create an account with LDS Singles by using either of the two ways: using your Facebook account or setting it up through your email. Using either method will still require you to fill out a personality questionnaire.

Registering using your Facebook account is a bit faster as LDS Singles takes the available information on your profile. On the other hand, if you use your email to create an account, you will need to manually input information such as your birthday and location. 

Your method choice also determines your login method. If you create the account through Facebook, you can log in using the "Login with Facebook" button. You only need to do this the first time as you can set up a username and password after you log in to your account.

Photo Verification

Make sure that before you register, you already have the profile picture you want to use on your device. Immediately after entering details about your name, location, and birthday, LDS Singles will ask you to upload at least one picture of yourself which will become your main photo in the site. 

You can upload up to six pictures during this step. Once your photos are uploaded, you’ll see “Pending Approval” notice on each image. To ensure the quality of profiles, LDS Singles screen all photos for inappropriate content. 

Allow 24 to 48 hours for approval.  Once approved, the photo becomes visible on your profile. If your photo does not meet LDS Single's policies, you'll see "Rejected" on the image.  You’ll also get an email notification for each photo that has been rejected.

The site also checks your contact information and location for verification purposes. There are certain countries, especially in Asia, that LDS Singles refuse accepting members at the moment, but people from most of the Western countries will not have a problem creating an account. 

You'll know your country is one of those forbidden locations when you encounter an "Error Code 15: Access Denied" message during registration.

Making Contact

LDS Singles Contacting
  • You can only get matches from around your city
  • Messaging is a premium feature
  • You can edit your match preference anytime you want
  • You can send photos using the site's messaging feature
  • Sending likes and smiles is free

    People who appear on your "Matches" list are those who live within your city. You can customise your matches' distance from you by 5 to 500 miles of the current city you are in. This means that you can only contact people who live in the same city as you. 

    If you happen to move to a different city, you can change your location anytime. Despite your ability to change the indicated location inside your profile, the site tracks your actual location through your device's GPS so you may still get matches from around these areas.

    To make better matches, LDS Singles lets you describe the type of people you are looking for. Under the "Discovery Preferences," you can select whether you want a long-term relationship, marriage, marriage, and kids, or a friend. 

    To get in touch with a member, you can simply click the message icon under their main photos to send a message. You need to have a premium subscription to this, however.

    Online Dating Safety

    The first time you enter your "Messages" page, an "Important Notice" dialog box will appear. It contains information about online dating safety. It makes you promise to never send money, ask others for money, or share financial information with anyone you meet on LDS Singles.

    You need to click the "I accept" button at the bottom of the message to continue. Clicking also serves as an acknowledgment that you understand and will follow the rules as you use the site. 

    LDS Singles is big on dating safety. At the bottom of the box, you will get a hyperlink to a page they made within the site about online safety tips. 

    "LookBook" Feature

    Using the LookBook feature, you can browse profiles one at a time, anonymously. From the LookBook page, you’ll see the member’s main photo, display name, age, location, and biography.

    You’ll have the option to make a selection on each profile. Clicking the heart icon indicates a like, while clicking on the X icon indicates that you'll pass on the profile.  

    If you pass on a member in LookBook, they will not be notified.  You will get a "Mutual Like" notification for every mutual likes you get.

    Profile Quality

    LDS Singles Profile
    • Disclosing frequency of church attendance is mandatory
    • You will know the last time members are online through their profile
    • All profiles have at least one photo
    • Uploaded images undergo a verification process
    • Profiles have complete information due to unskippable personality questionnaire

      Just by looking at profiles, it is easy to spot whether or not you have a chance of clicking with someone in the LDS dating arena. 

      Every profile page does not offer overwhelming information but gives enough details for you to understand someone's personality before you talk to them. It gives you space where you can talk about your self in your own words, and a separate section to describe your appearance. 

      Aside from the user-friendly ways of customising your profile, there are not many restrictions in viewing another member's profile. However, you need to be a premium member if you want to view the photo albums of other users.

      Information about Church Activities

      A special section where members can declare their frequency of church attendance is provided. 

      Remember to be truthful in these fields as you will get your matches based on the information you provide the site. Lying may lead to a mismatch which can be a frustrating experience for you as well as your mismatch. 

      One of the key Christian values is being family-oriented so everyone is required to disclose whether they have children or not and if they are single or divorced.

      Strict Photo Requirement

      LDSSingles implements a strict photo requirement for all members to ensure quality. Your main photo should always be a headshot of yourself. You cannot upload a group picture as your main photo. The site will only reject it once detected.

      Photo quality should be at least 375 pixels in width and length. Your account will also risk suspension if you upload a suggestive, offensive, or copyrighted pictures. 

      App

      LDS Singles Mobile App
      • The app is available for free
      • Apple iOS and Android users can download it
      • Features are the same on mobile and desktop
      • Convenient to use and easy to navigate
      • You can create an account using the app

      LDSSingles' design is very suitable for an app, which may be the reason why the majority of the members access it through mobile. Browsing profiles is easier when you use the app. 

      The "Browse" page will show you several profile pictures in boxes with a name, age, and location. Sometimes, these details are not visible enough depending on the size of your monitor. 

      In comparison, the results on this page are bigger when using the app as it reflects only three or four profiles at a time as you scroll down.

      All the functionalities on the site are also found on the app, even the premium features. You can upgrade your account on desktop, and these premium features are still present even if you switch to an app.

      Real Life Review

      "My friends from church told me about LDS Singles. I've been wanting to join dating sites for a long time, but I didn't know which one to try first. When they told me that this is a decent place to start, of course, I created my profile immediately. I started slow and took my time liking profiles until I find someone I like. It gave me good results so I didn't think twice about upgrading my account. Now I am friends with some of the people I met here. It's great to meet new people who share my beliefs. It felt great to have that barrier removed. I am meeting people but haven't committed to a serious relationship with anyone yet. I like to take things slowly."  - Jessica, 29

      Design and Usability

      LDS Singles is easier to navigate than most sites because it looks clean and pleasing to the eyes. It does not overwhelm you with a lot of information.

      Profile pages are packed with information but it does not look cluttered. Personal details are organised into sections which makes it easier to spot what you are looking for. 

      Other dating sites seem to depend solely on the user for profile information. In return, their profile pages get filled with long, tedious essays. 

      In comparison, LDSSingles help its members with building their profile by providing a questionnaire that is simple to fill out. Answers are reflected on the profile page in an organised way.

      It only has five tabs which are broken down into these basic functions:

      • Browse - where you can search for people;
      • Messages - where you can send messages to other members;
      • Matches - where your matches appear;
      • Activity - where all your site activity is recorded; and,
      • Help - where you can contact the support team

      Overall, LDS Singles may look simple, but it seems to have all the necessary functions at bay. The design is minimalistic but still looks modern and well-maintained.
