Parship.co.uk: Dating with a scientific approach – finding “the perfect match” through online psychometric testing.
Parship.co.uk was the UK’s first compatibility-based online dating service, specifically for people who are looking to form a lasting relationship. One of Europe’s largest and most successful serious online dating service, Parship now has nearly two million members – predominantly affluent, educated men and women between 28 and 55 years old. Parship initially launched the what was then a pioneering service in Germany on Valentine’s Day 2001, leading the way in Europe as the first online dating service to offer a scientific compatibility test to match people for a long-term relationship and is now established as the leading European service for single men and women who want to make a serious commitment, with 150 employees working to bring people together. According to the Parship website, 38 percent of their Premium Members report that they have found love with PARSHIP’s help.
How it works
Parship uses a patented test, this time called The PARSHIP principle®, which analyzes 32 personality traits and is based on an algorithm of 136 rules. It sounds complicated, but that’s not for you to worry about. Just sign up, do the test and get chatting to all those love-compatible people out there. The relevance of your suggested matches will depend on how accurately you complete your personality questionnaire. In order to get the most out of this approach, one needs to allow sufficient time to complete this section carefully, and to upload at least one good quality recent photograph. On the plus side, with this approach it is then possible to sit back and wait for suitable matches to come along.
Access for non-paying members is severely restricted. The matchmaking system can be used (minus some advanced options) and it’s possible to send ice-breakers. However emails can’t be sent or opened until one upgrades to premium. Photos are also blurred-out to non paying members. The website offers a great tutorial, a lengthy description of what they offer, many success stories and a free Parship test to begin. However, they don’t allow you to browse before you sign up. So, if you create a free profile, you can search around and see if they have what you want before you decide on becoming a premier member. Creating a profile will take a few minutes as they have several questions they want answered.
How much does it cost?
Minimum of £14.90 per month.
However, functionality is limited as the site is more geared up to helping you find a long term partner rather than flirting randomly with people you like the look of. Members have similar incomes and education. There is also a specific gay version of the site for those looking for a serious committed relationship with a same sex partner.
