Mormon dating tips Free web chat for adults
Dating in Your 20s This is part one of a four-part series, “Conscious Courtship,” in which we chat with professional matchmaker, Amy Stevens, and marriage and family therapist Alisa Snell.
In this post, we’ll examine the trials and tricks to dating as a 20-something in the LDS world.
This is a supplementary discussion from a Mormon Channel Daily interview.
What challenges do Latter-day Saint singles in their 20s face when it comes to dating and marriage today?
Stevens: We live in a world where there are so many choices and so much technology.
Marriage has become much more of a choice, and some people wrestle with whether or not it’s a choice they want to make in their 20s.
And that if they do have to work at it, there must be something wrong.I also see people use a lot of “should” statements.For example, a man looks at the perfect woman for him and says, “I should like her and I should want to call her more.” The moment you say “should,” the more unattractive it is.The reverse also happens: The person you shouldn’t be with becomes the person you really want to be with.
