Finding true love could be a TV remote click away, at least for single Mormons. A new free service from LDSPromise, an online dating company, and Comcast Utah allows singles to create video profiles that can be posted on and accessed through the cable firm's On Demand feature.
Viewers sitting in the comfort of their own homes can scroll through a list of names, click on one and see a film clip three minutes or so long of the person who might be The One. There, you can fill out your own profile and request a match. While Utahns can submit and view video profiles posted on HurryDate, there is a potential drawback: That guy or gal who catches your eye could turn out to be from New Jersey or some other faraway state. That hasn't kept people from calling on the listings, though, which prompted Comcast Utah to find a local online dating service as a partner.
And that is proving true for LDSPromise, too. Laub is one of a dozen or so single Mormons in Utah who have filmed video profiles so far, though Scott Johnson says interest is growing. Singles have several options for creating the video clips: do-it-yourself with a Webcam or home camcorder and then e-mail or mail the clip to LDSPromise; visit its office in Orem; or attend one of its single events where profiles are taped free.
Clips are edited to fit time constraints and a TV rating -- no bad or suggestive language or innuendos allowed. LDSPromise, which debuted a year ago, is trying to distinguish itself in the online dating world by requiring subscribers to fill out a question compatibility test it believes helps narrow the search for an appropriate match. The test "is deed to filter out those who might not be there to take it seriously, but also to create a greater chance for Sally and Bill at compatibility than picking names off a site," Johnson said.
The company also has clients follow a step-by-step process to get to know someone who has been identified as a potential match. The company, founded a year ago by Brigham Young University psychologist A. Lynn Scoresby, has collected 15, finished tests so far, according to Johnson. He said LDSPromise is averaging 12 to 15 engagements or marriages a month.
Laub is counting on that success rate. Between work and school, he has little time to get out in the dating world. That's why he was willing to give the layperson's reality TV a shot.
