As members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints we have high standards regarding LDS dating.
LDS youth are counseled to not date until they are at least 16 years old.
If you’re dating a teenage Mormon, there are quite a few things to know.
I’m bias, but I find most Mormons are very cheerful people who care about others.
You can understand those rules and still have no idea what your teenage Mormon friend is thinking.
I want to explain a Mormon belief that is central to our beliefs that is responsible for just about every dating decision we make. Eternal marriage means that Mormons believe that if we are married with proper Priesthood authority (in a Mormon temple) then God will honor our marriage not just on earth, but also after we die and are in Heaven.
I'm not mormon, but this girl I like is, and I was wondering what the basic rules I should know are.
This is a major reason why people get hurt, and why there's heartache.
": All of us can communicate loud and clear without using words. I'd like to do this again very soon.'" You may laugh at first, but think about that for a minute. We communicate loud and clear with our actions, and if we're not careful, we could be telling lies! Ashton: You mean, you can be dishonest by kissing someone? If putting your arm around someone means "I like you," and holding hands means "I really like you," than maybe kisses mean "I love you." What do you think?
In fact, as the old saying goes, "Actions speak louder than words." With that idea in mind, let's ask some questions. Some will say, "I don't know about that; I don't think kisses mean I love you." Perfect. Maybe kisses mean something different to you than they do to me, or to him, or her.
First, we’ll talk about the rules, but then we’ll get into the more important things that will help you understand where they are coming from.
The “Rules” for Mormon dating are only half of the story.
So the whole point of the rules above are to help Mormons to keep from disobeying God’s commandments about morality and sex, so that when they decide to marry later on in life, they can marry for eternity.
