Just because he was lds he was the better option I guess, it just makes me sad because she really liked him but being a non lds member ruined any chances he had. No joking here, over such an egregious & grave situation.
Thanks for reading and for your interesting comment! Utah Mormons can be a lot different than other Mormons. There are more Jensens in the phone book than Smiths. I will be so glad when that case is off our radar screens. Just a gross waste of time, effort and tax dollars. The girl is S-I-C-K......lock her away from society and be done with it!!! That will give you an idea of whether you might be interested in joining the church, as well. If you're near a church (preferably, near his congregation) ask him to share some information about the church beliefs, the youth group and other things related to the faith.
I am a LDS woman and was curious to see what this article had to say about our standards and I believe that this is true and it's a great way to explain it briefly to someone who isn't familiar to the church. That would open the door, perhaps, to getting better acquainted.
Many parents strongly prefer their kids to "marry in the church," so at times, someone who likes a person who's not in the church might be hesitant to get serious because of that preference.
For non-Mormons interested in dating an LDS church member, trying to figure out the church culture can seem like a mystery game.
It's a bit challenging to figure out how a group of people can have fun and date if they don't drink alcohol, prefer to avoid "R" rated movies, don't drink coffee, and are taught not to "mess around" before marriage.
So, what exactly do Mormon guys or girls look for in a date? What should you wear if you want to date a Mormon boy or girl?
Mormons dress stylishly, and follow the main fashion trends (as long as they fit the guidelines of the church).
And yes, there's a dress code, but it's there for good reasons.
The body is considered a sacred temple, and dressing in tight or revealing clothing is discouraged. Just because Mormons avoid some activities does not mean they're no fun to be with. Once you hang out with a group of LDS people of any age, you may find them to be as fun (and funny) as anyone else you've met, but also very considerate, caring, supportive of each other, and accepting of others. Hi, I am wondering if you might be able to explain to me why being non lds hurts the chances that an lds member will date the other person.
