Starting on Parship

Parship is the online dating service for people with higher expectations of life and of a relationship. Your first steps on Parship are to register with an email address and to take Parship’s compatibility test. The fascinating test is free of charge -- and takes just 20 minutes or so. Once you have completed the test, and provided some further information about yourself, you can view your list of matches, or recommended partners as they are called on Parship. Each of these people has a profile that is compatible with yours. You can find out more about them by looking at their profiles and by seeing what they say about themselves on their ‘About me’ page. You can even make initial contact for free with a contact request, a ‘smile’ or a quick Icebreaker quiz.

8 assumptions to avoid when you’re looking for love

If you are having trouble finding a partner or always end up with someone who isn’t right for you, maybe you are simply working on some mistaken assumptions. It could be that you are blocking your own route to happiness.  more

Alone doesn’t have to mean lonely

It isn’t always easy to be on your own ... Coming back loaded up from IKEA and having to lug everything upstairs yourself ... Sundays whiled uneventfully away ... Falling asleep and waking up without someone beside you  more

Breaking the shyness barrier

If you are on the shy side, it can be hard to make an approach to someone you like the look of. But inhibitions are there to be overcome.  more

Find a long-term partner

Many single people in the UK still see a long-term relationship in terms of marriage – it is a matter of finding a husband or finding a wife. On the other hand, many people are perfectly comfortable with the idea of finding a partner. These days, it is widely accepted that a serious long-term commitment is quite possible without a marriage licence.  more

Consigning your ex to the past

A new love can be like a new start in life, but what happens when the spirit of your ex is still haunting you?  more

Fit for a new relationship?

When you’re single, it’s wonderful to be able to suit yourself, but you can get into quirky or self-indulgent habits. When it’s time to start out on a new relationship, and there’s someone else to consider, you have to exercise some tolerance and flexibility.  more

Get the best out of your single life

Marketing departments love them, as does the taxman. Singles can devote time and energy to finding their next relationship, but how about allowing yourself a little space for personal development?  more

Password for safety

Passwords are essential on the Internet - for online banking, mail accounts and, of course, Parship. Lots of people use the same password everywhere, but that can expose you to risks. To protect yourself simply and effectively, just follow the suggestions here.  more

You’d really like to be in a relationship, but you’ve got some nagging doubts ... Can online dating really work for you? What happens if, after making initial contact with someone, it doesn’t go anywhere? … How best to handle thoughts of this kind.  more

Your profile

Parship’s matching process is based on more than 30 years of research. While the science behind Parship is sophisticated, we’ve made sure that it’s quick for members to get started on the service.

As soon as you’ve taken the compatibility test you gain access to your list of matches – your recommended partners. It’s easy to make contact with them, too, so you can start getting to know each other, safe in the knowledge that your anonymity and privacy are a priority on Parship.

It's worth spending a little time to make sure that your PARSHIIP profile creates the right impression. Your ‘About me’ page is especially important: if you complete it, you will attract more attention (and contact requests) from your recommended partners. This page gives you the chance to tell other members about yourself in your own words. Once again, Parship eases the process for you by providing a structure, some questions and some suggestions.

Don’t worry if you feel that what you have written on your ‘About me’ page is not a literary masterpiece! The most important thing is to give a true idea of what makes you tick – and remember that you can change or update your ‘About me’ page at any time. You will also attract more attention if you upload at least one photo to your dating profile. As ever, Parship respects your privacy, so your photo will never be displayed for general viewing on the service. You choose if – and when – you want to ‘release’ the photo to another member on a one-to-one basis. This is part of Parship’s policy of making sure that you always feel in control as you get to know potential partners.
