Parship.co.uk is unique in the online dating world - while many online dating sites cater for a broad spectrum of members either looking for friendship, casual fun or a more serious commitment, Parship only focus on longer-term relationships and use a psychometric test to help members find true love.
Registering for Parship takes a minimum of 20 minutes and in many cases longer. The reason being that Parship is an affinity style site that matches people on the basis of compatibility. The Psychometric Test is its main selling point, which premise is simple but effective. Parship asks you to complete a very thorough psychometric test, taking in everything from eye colour and favourite books to personal character traits and those qualities that you are expecting in your prospective partner. The questionnaire will be used to match your traits with those of other profiles and the two profiles will be compared and assigned a compatibility score- the higher the score the more compatible your answers were with those of the person that you are matched with.
"Search" button is maybe a little hard to find on Parship. Your search criteria gets saved the first time you join the site, so you don’t need to repeat it ever again – if new people who match your partner preferences join the site, they will automatically appear in your suggested partners list. However, should you want to look for someone else for a change, you can just change the search criteria and perform a new one. The Parship ethos is to bring you the most compatible matches available, based on your own requirements and as such the search facility is not as detailed as the likes of other dating sits.
If you like someone on Parship, you can send them a “smile” or an Icebreaker – which is a mini-multiple-choice-quiz, a really fun and cool way how to get in touch, plus it helps you find out whether you and the potential date are on the same wavelength. Another nice touch is you can agree on a fun forfeit you can do if you answer all the questions the same. Or, if you want to just skip that stage you can immediately move to emailing and just contact the person straight up, but obviously, email and direct contact are paid services, and parship's pricing is set well above the average for an internet dating site.
