An old friend of mine is Mormon, and I remember she used to meet her boyfriends at church functions or other LDS-related events. Because this was before online dating really took off, and because she wanted to be with someone who practiced the same religion, it seemed like she was kinda limited to these activities.
Now that online dating has become a standard for most singles, it’s easier than ever for them, as well as my friend, to find their ideal matches. Today, we’re bringing you the seven best free LDS dating websites, which are the best options for your wallet as well.
It’s true that Match.com is open to singles of all religions. However, because the site has over 30 million members (not to mention gets over 13.5 million monthly visitors), we promise you won’t have any trouble finding an LDS match. Not only can you specify your religious preferences on your profile, but you can also do so in Match’s Discover Section. Match also tops our list because it’s the most affordable option — register, upload your info and photos, browse, receive matches, and flirt.

Founded in 2000 by People Media, a well-known niche online dating network, LDSPlanet is one of the longest-running and most trusted LDS dating sites. It’ll only take you two minutes to create an account and begin browsing millions of profiles of like-minded and like-valued men and women. It won’t cost you a penny, either. Gail, a former user from Hemet, California, said of her experience on the site: “…finally found the most fabulous man… thank you for providing a path that we might meet and have a wonderful life together.”
Thanks to LDSMingle, you’ll never have to attend another LDS dance, singles conference, or singles ward ever again if you don’t want to, as the site claims. This free LDS singles dating site can find your special someone in no time — no awkward events necessary! Since 2001, LDSMingle has matched thousands of couples, one being Shannon and Jared, who had this to say: “To anybody still wondering, yes, you can find amazing, Christ-like people and relationships online! And, yes, you can even find eternal, temple-sealing-type marriages online with sites like this!”
On LDSSingles, you don’t have to worry about having to explain your beliefs or lifestyle as you might have to on other dating sites. Here, everyone is on the same page because the site was created for Mormons by Mormons, making it easier to break the ice. LDSSingles is one of those online dating sites that takes all the stress out of the process and makes it fun — with quick signup, active message boards, and more. And it’s totally free!
A lot of successful relationships start out as friendships, and if that’s what you’re looking for, you can turn to LDSPals. Since the site is “all for free, all day, every day,” you’re allowed to fill out a profile, upload an unlimited number of photos into your own photo gallery, send unlimited virtual flirts, messages, and private messages, save searches and favorite members, and the list goes.
TrueLDS is owned and operated by several BYU graduates and other Latter-Day Saints, who are experts in marketing and IT and who screen every member. So you can rest assured that you’re getting a personalized, safe, and quality experience. In terms of price, TrueLDS is comparable to other sites on this list. Registering, creating a profile, searching, and using the chat rooms are 100% free, and a paid account will let you send and receive messages.
“Never again should you pay for Mormon dating sites” is the promise LDSFriendsDate makes, and it appears the site keeps that promise. You won’t be asked for your credit card information during any step of the way, and LDSFriendsDate even helps you find LDS dating events in your area. Another pro is the site is desktop and mobile friendly, so date at home or on the go!

I always admired my friend for knowing exactly what she wanted in a partner and holding strong to her beliefs. While attending church and LDS events in your area is, of course, a great way to meet compatible people, you should also consider online dating. With so many sites specifically dedicated to LDS singles, you should have no trouble at all!
