Well-Known Psychologist Forms Online Relationship Service to Assist LDS Singles in Finding Likely Dating and Marriage Companions

PROVO, Utah --(Business Wire)-- Sept. 17, 2004 -- LDS Promise uses the lifetime work of A. Lynn Scoresby, Ph.D. to challenge traditional methods of online dating

LDS Promise(TM), a new LDS online relationship service created and developed by A. Lynn Scoresby, Ph.D. (a well-known family and child psychologist), today announced the launch of the beta version of its service at

Created specifically for single members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, was designed to provide a safer avenue for LDS singles to meet and develop compatible relationships. The technology and compatibility-matching algorithms behind are based on 35 years of Scoresby's research and professional experience in counseling couples and individuals about marriage, healthy dating relationships, child development, parenting and families.

"Most traditional online dating services can be dangerous and scary for anyone because all they offer you is a picture and a paragraph to go by," Scoresby said. " goes much further by actually having Latter-day Saint singles take the scientifically developed SureMatch(TM) questionnaire that identifies personality type, compatibility, likes, dislikes, wants and even expectations. SureMatch is designed to not only identify and match compatible mates but also to help avoid pairing an individual with someone who may not have the best of intentions when using an online service."

Singles subscribing to the services offered by are matched based on their answers to the patent pending SureMatch(TM) compatibility test created by Scoresby. The test applies comprehensive profiling tools to create a Personality Profile and to evaluate participants on scales such as gender confidence, communication effectiveness and emotional competence. Questions are also built into the questionnaire that help identify if a person completing the test is answering dishonestly or has unhealthy psychological conditions.

" uses advanced algorithms to interpret the SureMatch questionnaire and to match singles who each have the qualities desired in a future spouse," Scoresby said. "Aligning someone with the qualities they want goes a step further than merely finding compatibility. LDS Promise seeks to match compatibility with likability while also sifting out the bad seeds. Our system is designed to let LDS singles meet fellow Latter-day Saint singles anywhere in the world and have confidence that they are who they say they are, confidence that they will be safe, and confidence that they will be matched correctly."

Once a match is made, participants can choose to follow one of two paths, each of which has five stages to guide singles through the process of getting to know each other. LDS Promise also offers 12 e-learning programs, tailored to a single's individual needs, to help them measure their progress in forming meaningful relationships. Users of can also measure their progress with the person they have been matched with.

There is no cost to take the free personality/compatibility test at, and individuals who do so will learn about their strengths and possible blind spots in dating and relationships. They will also receive valuable insights in 22 areas of compatibility such as communication effectiveness, love and commitment, and emotional competence.

Latter-day Saint singles interested in being "matched" with a potential partner by LDS Promise can do so for a monthly online subscription price of $24.95. "And we will find you a match," Dr. Scoresby added.

Singles who take the free personality/compatibility test at before the full Web site is launched Oct. 1, 2004, will be given a month's free subscription to all services.
