Are you sure you want to delete this answer? Yes Sorry, something has gone wrong. Treat your LDS girlfriend with respect. That means that you respect her beliefs and values and that you do not try to persuade her to change her standards to please you. Especially those standards that involve issues of intimacy. In the Bible it states that “A virtuous woman is worth more than rubies”. Value her virtue because it is truly rare in today’s society and of great value. Her parents will not be as receptive to you dating her as they would an LDS young man who lives his religion. Because they want their daughter to eventually choose to marry in the temple of God where she can be sealed to her husband and family for all eternity not for this life only.

Basic information on this topic is provided in the Encyclopedia of Mormonism , Vol. Members of the Church are somewhat distinctive in their dating and courtship practices, but they are also influenced by broader cultural patterns. In some cultures, parents still closely supervise courtship and arrange children’s marriages, but youth worldwide have increasing choices in dating and mate selection. For most young people in the United States outside the Church, dating begins at an early age about age thirteen during the s ; it has no set pattern of progression, and is often informal and unsupervised.

Notes Jesus Christ quoted often from the Book of Enoch, indirectly testifying of its authenticity. Now it has been discovered that Enoch returns the favor because the key dates in the life of Christ are “holy days” on the Enoch Calendar. Thus, Enoch, who prophesied of the Elect One, indirectly witnessed that the Messiah would be none other than Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ and his apostles quoted from the Book of Enoch also called 1 Enoch as authentic scripture.
It was once in the Bible and was accepted as having been written by Enoch himself, the majestic antediluvian prophet who was translated into heaven without tasting death Heb. During the Third and Fourth Centuries AD the book fell into disfavor and was removed from sacred canon, destined to become one of the “lost books” of the Bible. It was rediscovered in in Ethiopia and is now readily available in English, but is still largely unappreciated. Before looking at the calendar it describes, let us briefly review how it contains doctrines or phrases of the Savior, which are apparently examples of the Savior quoting Enoch.
While that is the only referenced quotation in the Bible, there are many indirect references which involve striking similarities. The scholar and translator R. Charles declared, “The influence of 1 Enoch on the New Testament has been greater than that of all the other apocryphal and pseudepigraphical books taken together.

Sorenson, Brigham Young University, Overview: The Book of Mormon describes migrations of people from the Middle East to Central America, and further describes some features of their civilizations in the New World.
If the Book is accurate, archaeologists would expect to find numerous pieces of hard evidence in Central America that confirm the presence of these societies: Some hard evidence has been found in the past.
