Lds dating game devotions for dating divorced couples remarrying
Some LDS single adults in their late 20s and 30s believe the dating game is outdated, while others use their experience to meet others weekly.
(@Dating FLL/Twitter) Dating in the LDS young adult world can be like a real “Holy Grail” quest.
“Someone said to me once, ‘Maybe you’ll be able to marry an apostle when his wife dies when you get older.’ I hate getting compared to older single women in the church. Taylor Church, a 28-year-old from Utah, decided to put his heartaches and dating experience down on paper in a book titled “I’m Trying Here: A Memoir of Love, Loss, and Misadventure.” In his book, he talks about the last five to six years of his life being single.
Zack Oates, a 29-year-old BYU graduate who has published over 150,000 words on dating in his blog, firmly believes in his “three points rule” when it comes to pursuing another in the dating sphere.He said married couples can find many practical incentives to stick with the gospel because they are raising a family, but it can be more challenging for single adults.This disconnect and feeling of loneliness is felt in moments spent with younger people at YSA ward activities or at church, according to Vandagriff.Oates says the three points rule, as described in his You Tube video, “is all a game.” Oates says a man and a woman each start out with zero points, and their dating actions, such as calls or gifts, award them certain points.
Once someone hits three points, they’ve done enough to try contacting the other person.
The book is available on Amazon and at Pioneer Bookstore on Center Street in Provo.
