Latter-day Saint Life

New LDS App Is the Mormon Version of Tinder


Tinder has been making marriages and headlines for years now. And while many LDS singles have had success with the app, others experience frustration when they realize many of the people on Tinder aren't looking for the same kind of commitment.

Not to mention it can be difficult to find singles who share your same goals and beliefs. That's why BYU graduates have created a new dating app, one named based on a witty play on LDS terms: Mutual.

"We understand the challenges of Latter-dating, especially after leaving Provo! Our mission is to create a place that members of the Church can trust, which encourages meaningful connections and real dating," the app description explains. "We've included a bunch of nifty app features to help our LDS singles community get to know each other beyond a few profile pictures."

Mutual is "a place for LDS simple to meet and get to know each other." Much like Tinder, Mutual matches you up with other LDS singles based on your location.

Then, you can anonymously choose to like that person or continue looking at other singles in your area. If there's a mutual like, the app will notify each person and they can start chatting to get to know each other better.

If things continue to go well, Mutual users can choose to meet up for a first date. And who knows, from there they might just find that theirs is a match made in heaven!
