About Latter-day Saint dating site, LDS Mingle, was started as a free LDS dating service back in 2001 and later merged with LDS Singles Connection to create one of the largest online LDS singles sites.
To date LDSMingle has brought thousands of singles together.
The girl is supposed to remain calm and unassuming when asked, but the girl is so rarely asked that she automatically jumps to the conclusion that the guy must REALLY be interested. In this stage you may not have any real ties to anyone (except for maybe your “wing-man”) and so you look to see if there is anyone who seems to have that certain charisma you’ve been looking for that you can add to your list of “potentials”.
A young adult approached with an authoritative parental attitude, may react with defiant rejection of all parental input (common in strong-willed children) or resentful compliance in which your daughter may give lip-service to your desires, without heart commitment.
Neither response yields the desired affect that would bring a child to maturity in her decision making capacity.
Its a vicious cycle that can be easily avoided by understanding the 5 Stages of Dating. Dating is the stage where you review your list of “potentials” that you made from the hangout phase and you go with one person off that list to breakfast in the morning and then perhaps, you accompany a different “potential” out to dinner the next night.
Some may call that being a “player”, a term that has such a negative connotation to it; defining someone as callous and insensitive to the feelings of others, and purely in the dating game for their own selfish purposes.
The dating game within the Mormon culture can seem a bit broken at times.
