Looking for a partner

Looking for a partner

The process of looking for a partner has been transformed by the Internet. In their search for a relationship, single people can now choose from dozens of reputable dating websites. PARSHIP - a relationship site with matching based on the scientific PARSHIP test - gives single men and women a substantial advantage in finding a partner: each member is matched with potential partners, each with a profile suggesting a high degree of compatibility.

A site like PARSHIP will help you make initial contact with people who are genuine partner material, but only you can decide whether someone is really right for you - whether that person is ‘the one’.

Looking for a partner

Looking for a partner online is made simpler by PARSHIP: first of all, the scientific PARSHIP test analyses your personality and then PARSHIP recommends potential partners to you: each of them has a profile which is significantly compatible with yours in terms of personality, aspirations and lifestyle. This means that - differently from other dating services - you are not taking pot luck as you look through profiles; with PARSHIP, you stand a higher chance of making a genuine connection with your matches.

But, even with PARSHIP’s help, there is more to finding a partner online than checking out a profile. It is a matter of making and sustaining contact with people whose profile you find interesting - first of all online, then probably on the phone and finally in person. Once you have made it to the first date (which can sometimes seem quite a challenge as well as a great opportunity!), it is a matter of feeling your way with the person you have met - and maybe of weighing him or her up against other new online acquaintances.

If, all being well, you go beyond a first date and maybe start a relationship, then you will learn more about each other. As ever, a stable relationship involves sharing and compromising as you find the right balance in your way of life and in your emotional life.
