The Parship Quality Promise

We are committed to providing a high quality service, offering you, the Parship member,
the best possible experience. We guarantee this with the Parship Quality Promise.

Bringing people together

Bringing people together
Parship initially launched its pioneering service in Germany on Valentine's Day 2001, leading the way in Europe as the first online dating service to offer a scientific compatibility test to match people for a long-term relationship. Parship is now established as the leading European service for single men and women who want to make a serious commitment. 150 Parship employees work to bring people together who are really right for each other. We are proud to say that 38 percent of our Premium Members report that they have found love with Parship's help.

All profiles personally checked

To help ensure that Parship's members are genuine people in search of a serious relationship, our customer services team personally checks all member profiles. Any text and photo that a member adds to his or her profile is approved before it goes live on the site.

The scientific compatibility test

The unique scientific Parship Principle®, which matches people by compatibility, is based on more than 30 years of research into relationships, conducted by Professor Hugo Schmale of Hamburg University. Parship's specialist international team of 16 psychologists constantly refines and updates the matching process. When you take the Parship test, you produce a personality profile which enables the service to recommend potential partners to you. These are people with whom you stand to be genuinely compatible, since you complement each other through a particular balance of similarities and differences. Tens of thousands of happy couples have already been brought together by Parship.

Discretion and privacy

Parship members are serious about finding a relationship, so they are ready to put some time and thought into answering the Parship test. Parship's service puts you very much in control and protects your privacy.

Data protection

Your data is secure on Parship and will never be passed on to a third party without your agreement. The payment system is protected by SSL-encryption, so that your payment data is safely transmitted.

High-quality members

Many of Parship's members are people with a higher level of education and income. The ratio of women to men and the distribution of ages are well balanced, with most members being between 30 and 55. You can look forward to meeting like-minded people on Parship, and the concept and nature of the service attracts people who are seriously looking for a long-term relationship.

Customer service.

Our customer service agents are your contact person, so that your search for a partner is smooth and successful. They are at your service when you need them to assist you and give you advice. You can contact our Customer service via e-mail as well as using the contact form on the website. Your questions will then be answered as quick as possible.

Contact guarantee

If you opt for a six-month Premium Membership, and if, when it ends, you have not established contact with at least five other members, we will -- on request -- give you six further months of Premium Membership, free of charge. As a member, it is always well worth taking the initiative and getting in touch with your recommended partners -- by means of a contact request, with a fun 'Icebreaker' mini-quiz, or simply by sending a quick smile.

'10 of the best' UK dating site

In March 2010, The Daily Telegraph rated Parship as one of the UK's '10 of the best' dating sites, saying: 'Complete an in-depth personality test and get matched mathematically with similar people ... If you trust in psychoanalysis, it's spot on.'

Major media partners

Among Parship's media partners are The Independent, Psychologies magazine and the Belfast Telegraph.
