Dating Safety Tips
Your Safety, Security, and Satisfaction Is Very Important to Us.
Please read these online dating safety tips and use them as guidelines to help you have the best experience possible. Remember no matter how hard we work to keep you safe, it’s ultimately up to you to stay aware and employ common sense both online and offline.
Keep Initial Communication to Within LDS Singles’ Platform
If you are talking with someone who is acting unusually, you can report the profile to LDS Singles. However, the LDS Singles team can only investigate within the boundaries of the LDS Singles platform. For that reason, it’s best to keep your initial communication with a potential partner to within your LDS Singles inbox. If an online contact provides a link to chat on a different site, or they immediately try to pressure you into chatting via a different app, stop all contact and report the profile.
Keep Your Personal Info Private
Don’t share any personal information in your profile (like your last name, phone number, addresses or other identifying information), and keep that info private until you feel 100% comfortable sharing it with your match.
Go At Your Own Pace
When it comes to creating a meaningful, long-lasting relationship, slow and steady wins the race. Get to know someone before meeting them offline by chatting in real-time on LDS Singles to see if there’s chemistry! Ask a lot of questions and watch for potential inconsistencies.
Always Meet In Public
Ask your date to meet you in a public place (like a coffee shop or restaurant) for your first few dates, and be sure to tell a friend where you’re going beforehand. You should also arrange your own transportation to and from the date. Don’t forget to bring your phone with you!
Trust Your Instincts
Getting to know someone requires a little digging, and a lot of common sense. That’s the best way to discover an ideal match online. Your good instincts will carry over into your offline date… and that’s how to ultimately find lasting love online!
Never Share Financial Info
Never send money — regardless of how nicely someone asks — and never give out financial information such as your social security number, credit card or banking information. If someone requests money or you sense a scam, report it immediately. Our customer service team is ready and waiting to help — that’s part of our commitment to you!
