Speed dating in slc ut

02 Mar

I went to church sponsored events looking for women I might be interested in, but never found anyone that fit with me.

Darlene and I were introduced by The LDS Matchmaker. We had tons in common and I actually had chemistry with her!

We had both grown pretty frustrated with the dating scene. I had tried everything from Mid-Singles conferences to singles wards to online dating to blind dates without success. They screened their matches so I wasn’t wasting time with someone I wasn’t attracted to and had nothing in common with. At the end of the night, I walked her to her car, got her number, and the rest is history.

I mentioned that it would be great if there were just a Matchmaker like on Fiddler on the Roof who could make matches for LDS people like us. (Natalie) I joined The LDS Matchmaker’s little black book when my friend told me about it.

She told me that there was a company called The LDS Matchmaker that did help singles. I liked the idea of dating men that had been screened.

Shortly after we started dating I noticed that his dating techniques were familiar and I could tell he had spent time learning skills from The LDS Matchmaker’s dating coaches.

I could tell he had attended their seminars and really knew what he was doing when it came to how to treat a woman. A few weeks after we started seeing each other, I had an opportunity to date another man who had been an important person in my life. Jordan (who was clearly using The LDS Matchmaker techniques) was so classy and wished me luck in the other relationship.

That night in frustration over dating I looked up The LDS Matchmaker’s website and filled out the online form. It felt safer to have someone screening the dates, like there’s less personal risk.

They emailed me awhile later and said there was a guy interested in meeting me and sent me information about him.
