Dating through online LDS chat rooms can be tricky. What do you know that when you finally meet in person, there would be chemistry if you already experience chemistry online? Will it be the same? It's exciting to meet someone for the first time, and you don't want to blow things up because you think there could be a definite opportunity when you connect and chat on the phone very well with emails. Yet the attraction, several times, doesn't go all the way to when you're actually first meeting a person face to face. First of all, make sure you have common beliefs and principles. Feeling LDS can be a big benefit to dating others who share your LDS faith while attempting to communicate. You will not only be able to discuss issues with the same intent, but it will make it easier to preserve the chemistry without fighting over religion. I've dated non-members, and the topic seems to still rear its ugly head in the discussion, which inevitably snuffs out the spark that once was there. Being the internet, you will come across the occasional whack-job, they still seem to slip their way through the cracks, even on LDS dating sites.
You can easily chat with Mormon missionaries online. But you have to meet people in person and really get a decent feel for them; there is no other way around it. Yes, you can email and talk all you want, but bear in mind that it's better to write down everything, so you have more time to reflect and think about just the right thing to say. First of all, Mormon dating rules allow you to date only another Mormon; this isn't uncommon for other churches and religions. Dating someone outside of your faith is seen as disloyalty; how important can your faith and values be to you if you want to associate with someone who doesn't share them? Chastity also plays a major part in the laws of Mormon dating. Their church teaches that a man and a woman who are married to each other, and at no other time, and with no one else, are to share intimate relationships. That leaves out both fornication and adultery practices. Mormon dating rules often influence one's attire, acts, and even thoughts that are meant to stay respectful and chaste always.
