Dating Safety

True LDS is a personals site for Latter-Day Saints. True LDS is hosted on a secure server in Salt Lake City, is SSL certified and is monitored 24/7 by SiteLOCK. We have blocked the IP addresses of known spammers. But most important of all, all profiles are checked manually by members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

But as in any dating situation it pays to err on the side of caution. Here are some commonsense tips;

Do not put anything in your profile that could reveal your personal identity. Such as your place of work, neighbourhood, your ward / branch, contact details and of course your real name.

Communicate anonymously on True LDS until you feel ready. On True LDS you can upload videos and share photos with limited access.

Is there anything unusual about the person or their friends and family? Google his or her name.

Chat using a webcam. You will be able to tell a lot using a webcam.

Schedule the first meeting in a public place. Take someone else along or at least let others know where you are going and what you are doing.

Have a close look at their family and the kind of people that they hang out with. What kind of people are they?

Are they familiar with basic LDS lingo; Family home evening, baptism, callings, church activities, home teaching, modern day revelation, temples, P-day?

Other warning signs; the person lies or is inconsistent in what he or she says. They ask for money. Are vague. They want to move into a serious relationship too soon.

Please report any suspicious inappropriate activities or behavior that is not in line with the teachings of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We take complaints very serious and will usually respond within 48 hours.

And last but not least; trust your gut feeling. If something feels out of place or strange, it almost always is.

Be safe and have fun!
