About the Guide

Because half of your friends got married 2 years out of high school and you’re trying to figure out more creative things to say when everyone in the ward asks “Are you dating anyone?”

Being a single Mormon girl has its advantages and its annoyances. And the older you get the stronger both become.

There was no guide in the Young Women’s manual of what to do when Prince Charming just wants to “hang out”, has been discovered as dating another girl, or you are sure he died in the war in heaven and would find you if he still had a body.

This is a light-hearted look at the single situation. It’s meant to put some humor on a sometimes uncomfortable time of life, and maybe shed some light into the corners to help understand it better. It’s strange, but it’s not bad. You can survive anything with a little humor and this is definitely one of those times to use it as much as you can! So, don’t be depressed. With a few more activities and some food you too will find your eternal companion in a matter of weeks. Your married at 18 leaders are sure of it.

Well, this Guide won’t have all the answers, but it will make the journey a bit more bearable and entertaining along the way. We hope you enjoy!

  1. Hey… why haven’t you written in a while? I can’t begin to tell you how hilarious and right on target you are with dating and LDS men. In DC the “cool” thing to do is STEALTH date. You know, you date but don’t do it so anyone can see you. Your roommates are sworn to secrecy and you never have any contact where other ward members can see you because you certainly don’t want to miss out on someone who’s prettier, smarter, more talented… whatever. I hate singles wards.

    • Wow, that sounds really gay. I hate singles wards too.

  2. I just found your website. Looks like I’m a little late as you’re moving on. It’s very fun. We’re just setting up something along the same vein. Would love your opinion. http://confessionsofasinglemormongirl.blogspot.com

  3. I love your site! Just before discovering you, we just started our own relationship guide for single women offering relationship insights, but it’s written mostly from the perspective of those who are married.

    It’s great that you have set up a place for honest and open discussion on the struggles of singlehood. It helps knowing that nobody is alone. Keep writing!

  4. Hello Miss Jones! I just found your blog and I think is amazing. I’m from Guatemala, really small, not precisly the most widely mormon boys market and close minded country on which being single is like being a witch or something. I’m 18 and I know, a lot of people would think I’m crazy for being in this blog but it happens that meanwhile all my friends are either becoming engaged, getting married or at least dating I haven’t been asked to a single date in my life, so annoying people are always asking those bugging questions about my relationship status or trying to pairing me off with any random guy that crosses their minds. Funny thing is that when a decent guy appears -and believe me that is like witness a miracle- he goes for any of the other girls I know but me, so is a pretty frustrating thing. This blog literally made me laugh my head off I ❤ IT! Thanks for taking the time to write, you really brightened my day.

    • I can totally relate. I’m 19 and I live in a small town in Colorado. I drive about an hour to my singles ward. I have never had a boyfriend, all my closest friends frowning up and old roommates are now engaged, married or pregnant. I found this sight because I’m having a hard time understanding why I can’t find a man to date!

  5. Ms Jones! I hope you’re alright. I miss your posts a lot 🙂 Hope to see you soon!
