Your online dating profile on Parship works differently from a profile on an ordinary dating site. For a start, the results of the Parship test indicate just how compatible you are with each of your recommended partners. And, of course, your (carefully chosen) photos are not open for general viewing. The ‘About me’ page on your Parship profile gives you the opportunity to provide insights into what makes you tick. It can vastly increase your chances of making successful contact. The main things are to be positive and to be yourself. For tips on making the most of your online dating profile, read more in this section.
My secret worry is that I'm doomed to always be the girl that's a "friend" not a "girlfriend". My confidence in this arena is pretty low because although I'm bubbly, outgoing and have both close friends and a wide social circle, I have never had a serious relationship, or one that lasted longer than 3 months. more
I've been a member of Parship for 2 months now but I've not been having a great deal of success. I haven't met with any of my contacts, for one reason or another - they fizzle away eventually, or seem incompatible with me or simply not my type.
I hope you can give me some advice. My heart was broken last year and I am finally getting over it. A few months ago I started to date again but could never find anyone who came close to the man who left me. more
Your 'About me' page on your Parship profile is very important. How can you make sure it creates a favourable impression? Writing a good dating profile is often the first step towards a successful relationship, but writing it can often seem daunting. more
Online dating profiles
An appealing online dating profile is often the first step towards a successful relationship. Online, as in real life, first impressions make a difference. It’s worth thinking carefully about what you write on the ‘About me’ page of your Parship profile, but the questions and prompts supplied will make things easier for you: there is no need to agonise for hours about what to say. After all, Parship is focused on the real you. (And you can change your ‘About me’ page at any time.)
The ‘About me’ page complements the results of the Parship test in your online dating profile and the compatibility score you share with each of your recommended partners. Look at your matches’ profiles and you’ll find that the ‘About me’ page is where you can really start to find out whether someone holds potential for you. If their ‘About me’ section is still empty, though, don’t be discouraged. Take the initiative and send a contact request to find out more about them. If their ‘About me’ page is complete, then pick up on one of its themes in your contact request. Remember that anyone’s online dating profile is simply a starting point: it’s up to you to find out more about each other and to make things happen.
It is definitely worth uploading a photo to your online dating profile too. On Parship, where your privacy is respected, your photo is never generally visible - you ‘release’ it to another member on a one-to-one basis, if and when you choose to do so. Your choice of photo (or photos) is, as you might expect, very important - a smile always helps. Maybe ask someone you trust for advice on the picture(s) to choose.
