If PARSHIP’s compatibility matching provides the foundation for success in finding a real relationship, it is also up to you as a member to help yourself along the path to finding someone special.
For instance, it’s worth being flexible when setting your search criteria. How much does it really matter if someone is a couple of years older or a couple of inches shorter than your consider ideal? And have you considered dating somebody who doesn’t live in your area? With PARSHIP, you can even get in touch with people in other European countries - though a long-distance relationship isn’t for everyone. And if someone tells you they are separated rather than divorced, that doesn’t stop them from being single and genuine.
While it’s good to know what job someone does - and PARSHIP is known as the professional dating service - don’t make any assumptions on the basis of what someone does for a living. PARSHIP’s matching centres on the compatibility of two people’s personalities, not their professional interests.
Another route to success is to take the initiative when it comes to making contact with your recommended partners. It takes a lot less courage than approaching someone in a bar or striking up a conversation at the supermarket! You can send a contact request - a private email over PARSHIP’s internal messaging system - or you can try an Icebreaker - a fun way to show interest. You answer four quick questions about life and then you send the same four questions as a quiz to the recommended partner of your choice. Then the two of you see how your answers compare. You can also simply send a ‘Smile’ to another member, or you can ‘Comment’ about something you like on their profile. Everything has to start somewhere - including a long-term relationship - so be ready to make the first move in whichever way you choose. It could change your life.
