In a church that requires chastity but a world in which random hookups are the norm, what about the plight of single adults who are well past the average Mormon dating age?
Or even more difficult, what about those divorced members who are committed to the law of chastity, but also facing the dating scene again? Prairie skirts and fluffy bangs look horrible on me (I know–I am dating myself).

I was married to a non-member, and when I started thinking about dating again, I figured I would date both members and non-members. I was crazy for this guy and he was crazy for me, but he just could not wrap his mind around two adults being in love and not having sex. I had been sexually active, and now I was just going to stop? After the frenzy died down, there were 2 or 3 men that I continued to IM and email, but where it got interesting is about every week or so I would get a new “hit”–someone would just pop in with an IM and start flirting with me. When i would look at their profiles I would find that the majority of these guys were KIDS. ” What I quickly learned is the reason older chicks are “cool” is because many of us are divorced which means we were previously sexually active, and quite possibly more open to being sexually active now and teaching a few things to the youngsters. My conclusion is, for the most part, that the LDS dating sites are cyber singles bars where men (women, too, I am sure) can easily hide the big ole skeletons in their closet behind pretending to be a faithful (notice I didnt say perfect) member of the church.
I mean KIDS: age range from 21(hello horny RM) to 26. One of the kids actually told me “everything, but . .” was OK, and you would be worthy to keep your temple recommend. One young man was looking for a more geographically convenient hookup. So, what can single (or divorced) adults of a certain age do if they want to keep the law of chastity while dating? What are your experiences with Mormon dating sites? Have any of you experienced the “Reverse Cougar” described above (young Mormon male seeks experienced hot older female)?
