The LDS Matchmaker is privileged to have a part in creating hundreds of love stories each year.Because our services are confidential, many choose to withhold their names or pictures but we hope you enjoy the messages of hope and faith below.Even if you did not grow up Mormon you have been exposed to the ways of the Mormons and their thinking that people should get married and have kids at a super young age.This has created a dating pool of divorced, broken, crazy people with kiddos.You might be saying, "But Sarah, there are a lot of happily married Mormon couples." And I would say, "yes, but this is not an article about the happily married, it is an article about why dating in Utah sucks." I would also say, "shut-up! I am drawing a blank so here is a funny picture of a cat The ugly truth is dating sucks, dating in Utah sucks more so than dating anywhere else but a general consensus is that dating sucks.it's my article." : The Ruined Dudes: These are the guys that use to be sweet until they got their heart ripped out and stomped on; leaving nothing but a hollow shell that is only interested in the super "smart" women. Most of us are not looking to be the next Anna Nicole; but a you've got to have a little something. : She wants it: There is nothing more unappealing than someone telling me that they are going to rock my world. At the end of the day I guess if you can't find your perfect match you should at least find someone who doesn't make you want to punch babies. The study, which used speed dating data, found a computer could predict who is desirable and how much someone would desire others — who’s hot and who’s not — but it could not unravel the mystery of unique desire for a specific person.“Attraction for a particular person may be difficult or impossible to predict before two people have actually met,” said Samantha Joel, a University of Utah psychology professor and lead author“A relationship is more than the sum of its parts.
Dating websites often claim attraction between two people can be predicted from the right combination of traits and preferences, but a new study casts doubt on that assertion.“We found we cannot anticipate how much individuals will uniquely desire each other in a speed-dating context with any meaningful level of accuracy,” Joel said.“I thought that out of more than 100 predictors, we would be able to predict at least some portion of the variance.If you dare to date here be advised that it comes with its own set of experiences unique to the area: some Good, some Bad, but most are just plain Ugly.I don’t like to mention the Mormon religion often in my writing but I find that this is key to understanding how dating in Utah works.
