This LDSPlanet review is dedicated to the LDSPlanet online dating platform, which is designed exclusively for the members of the Mormon community to help them find other people who share their faith. Mormon people who are followers of the Latter-day Saints Church can build romantic relationships only with a fellow believer, a Mormon, that’s why they avoid using general dating websites. Our LDSPlanet review states that the website was launched in 2002 by People Media company, which specializes in creating websites and dating platforms for specific target groups of people. The Mormon community is a huge one, and its members are usually busy with church or other activities. So the LDSPlanet platform aims to address this problem and create an opportunity for the people of the Mormon faith to socialize and find romantic partners.
The LDSPlanet website interface is user-friendly, the design is attractive, and the navigation is easy. But alongside its advantages and advanced features, the platform has also disadvantages. Here are some major pros of the website:
The LDSPlanet online dating platform has approximately 500 thousand users from the USA or Canada. Unfortunately, the website has a low engagement rate – only 150 weekly active users. The Mormon community is indeed large, and the Latter-day Saints Church geography includes lots of countries, but since the LDSPlanet website aims to unite two single people, it is only for these two North American countries. The platform welcomes only single men and women who can be unmarried, divorced, or widowed. The majority of the platform’s users or more precisely 60 percent are women, and the other 40 percent are men. To these people, the LDSPlanet website is salvation because it helps single Mormons to find their ideal matches and their partners-for-life without spending much time on going for dates.
The LDSPlanet welcomes single Mormon men and women, be them unmarried, divorced, or widowed. All the registrants should specify their marital status in the registration form, which excludes the status of married for understandable reasons. The Latter-day Saints Church welcomes only heterosexual individuals, therefore, the LDSPlanet platform does not welcome representatives of the LGBT community. In the registration form, you should choose your gender – male or female, who is looking for an individual of the opposite gender.
We have already mentioned that the LDSPlanet user base has more than 500 thousand members, 60 percent of which are women, and the remaining 40 percent are men. These people can be divided into five age groups, beginning from 18 years old till over 55 years old.
As we can see the gender balance between males and females is preserved in every age group.
In an attempt to help you register on the LDSPlanetwebsite easily, in our LDSPlanet review, we should mention that it offers two options of a signup – with an email address or Facebook profile. In the registration form, the members of the Latter-day Saints Church should enter a unique username not used by any other member, and a reliable password. Later you need to enter some basic personal information, like your age, gender, location, and marital status – unmarried, divorced, or widowed. For the location, only two countries – the USA and Canada are available since the target audience of the LDSPlanet website is the North American region. After pressing the confirmation button your LDSPlanet account will be created, and you can log in to enter some detailed information to help other people to know you better.
Generally, the above-mentioned fields are the only mandatory fields of the LDSPlanet registration form. However, it is also recommended to upload a profile photo with which your profile will look more complete and attractive for other users. If you signed up with your existing Facebook account, your photo will be attached to your LDSPlanet account automatically. If you got registered with an email address, then you should upload a photo manually. The website supports some popular photo formats like JPG, GIF, PNG, BMP, and TIF. Please also notice that the size of photos should not exceed 5 MB, otherwise the system will not accept it. Each photo undergoes strict control by the LDSPlanet moderation staff to make sure that the photo complies with the platform’s rules. The photo checking process takes some time – usually 20 minutes. To fill out your profile in our LDSPlanet review, we also recommend answering some questions about your faith, hobbies, work, and education to help your potential matches to know you better. Besides, you can also name several questions about the interests of your partner to break the ice and start a conversation.
After creating an LDSPlanet account, you may want to start a conversation with the people you like. Unfortunately, the messaging feature is blocked for those accounts that use the basic free membership plan. To be able to send messages, you need to upgrade your profile by buying a subscription. Besides the messaging feature, there are also other features which help both paid and free membership users to make contact with other users. For example, you can view other people’s profiles and if you like them, add them to the list of your favorites. Besides, you can also see the list of the people who viewed your profile and send flirts to those you like. Also, you can use the search feature if you are looking for someone in particular. The search feature for free membership accounts lacks some advanced features, but still, it can find the person you want to connect.
We have already mentioned in our LDSPlanet review, that the LDSPlanet website is designed only for the members of the Latter-day Saints Church and encourages single Mormons to connect and build romantic relationships. Currently, the platform is used by 500 thousand Mormon men and women from the USA and Canada. The website is accessible both from a computer and phone via browsers, and no LDSPlanet mobile app is available. Consequently, the LDSPlanet website is the only way to access the platform. The mobile version of the website may be convenient, but the desktop version is the fully functional one with the complete list of all the features and buttons.
In our LDSPlanet review, we have already mentioned that the platform does not have an application. It means that the main competition is between the LDSPlanet website’s desktop and mobile versions. The desktop version can be accessed by any browser of a computer. It is the fully functional version of the LDSPlanet platform, which contains all the features, buttons, and functions.
The platform does not have any application compatible with either an Android or an iOS device. The only way to enter the platform is to open the website on the browser of your phone. The mobile version of the website may not seem quite appealing or convenient because it is not optimized for mobile phones. Anyway, in the circumstances of the LDSPlanet mobile app’s absence, the mobile version of the website can be a good alternative.
The design of the LDSPlanet website reminds the design of some social media sites like Facebook, mainly because of its blue color. The design is nice, plain, and uncomplicated. It has separated sections like Inbox, Search, Settings, and so on, and also a quite large orange Send Message and Send Flirts buttons. The site does not contain any ads, absolutely none, which is highly appreciated by the users. The user-friendly and handy design of the LDSPlanet hookup website encourages even the least tech-savvy person to give it a try.
If you are a tech-savvy person, then it will take you only a few seconds to understand how to navigate the LDSPlanet website. If you hate technology but anyway, decided to try the LDSPlanet dating platform, then you will learn how to navigate the website in only a few minutes. On the top of the page, you can see the most often used buttons – Home, Inbox, Search, Matches, and Settings. The main menu with Inbox, Messages, Views, and other buttons is located on the left side of the page. The right side of the page shows the members available for an online chat. In the middle of the page, you can see the profile photo of the person, some information about him/her, and the buttons of sending a message or flirt.
Advanced features of the LDSPlanet website are available only for those users who buy the premium membership, which comes with three subscription plans. All three of them unlock the same features, but users have the choice to buy one of them depending on how long they plan to use the platform.
The LDSPlanet subscription prices are affordable compared to those of other dating platforms that offer similar features.
This LDSPlanet review aims to inform the potential users of the LDSPlanet platform that it offers two types of service – free services and fee-based services. The absence of several important features makes the usage of the platform merely impossible that’s why many users go for a paid membership. For the free membership the following services are available:
Subscription plans remove all the limitations and allow enjoying the full potential of the LDSPlanet platform up to the hilt. On top of the above-mentioned features, the paid membership adds the following features:
If you have already made up your mind to go for a paid membership, then you should open the settings of your account. There you can see all three subscription plans. Select the one most suitable for you and press the “Continue” button, which will send you the payment page. Choose the payment type, enter the details of the chosen payment system, and confirm the payment. When the LDSPlanet subscription plan expires, the platform will auto-renew your membership. So, if you do not plan to prolong your subscription, make sure you switch off the auto-renewal. If you forget to do that, you will get billed by the LDSPlanet dating platform with no chance of refund.
The LDSPlanet hookup platform offers three payment systems, and you can choose the one that suits you best.
If you would like to see your payment history, you can do it by choosing the Account Status section in the settings of your LDSPlanet account. The platform also allows changing the subscription plan, though, for that you have to pay an additional 3.99 USD.
As you may notice the LDSPlanet platform does not have any kind of verification except for photo moderation. The reason is plain – the platform believes that the registrants are religious people, honest Christians who would not fake their identity. We should admit that this is a weighty explanation of the LDSPlanet website’s policy. However, we recommend the users to stay alert and pay attention to the detailed information on every profile to avoid the negative effect of fake profiles.
The main features of the LDSPlanet website are great, but you need something special? The platform offers the following additional features:
In our LDSPlanet review, we highly recommend you to use these additional features to find your ideal match easier and faster.
In conclusion, in this LDSPlanet review, we would like to encourage all single Mormons from the USA and Canada to get registered on the LDSPlanet platform and find the lover of their life. The website is completely legit with an alert security staff that constantly checks on the website’s vulnerabilities and fixes them to protect your data. The platform does not have a mobile application, but in the user-friendly and handy website, you can find all the necessary features. And finally, this LDSPlanet review showed that the website has both free services and premium membership at fairly affordable prices.
