Today in Ireland, there are 1.2 million singles. Nearly 60% of them are looking for a serious relationship and some 450,000 of them would consider the Internet as a route to love. They can choose from a range of online dating services, but how do they make the right decisions in their efforts to find someone special?
Every reputable dating site will ask you to register and supply some details about yourself, and at some point you will be expected to pay a modest subscription so that you can benefit from everything the site has to offer. Some sites are for singles who are interested in a bit of a chat and a bit of a flirt, while others – like PARSHIP – are for people who are looking for someone special for a committed relationship, even marriage.
Most dating sites just match you with other singles according to the search criteria you have entered … location, age, shared interests, etc. You will then see matching results in the form of page after page of snapshots (or blank boxes where singles prefer to remain incognito), along with a few words telling you about the person in question. But, if you are looking for love rather than a little entertainment, is that enough to get you on the right track?
Singles need to make an informed choice
The professional, focused service offered by PARSHIP is designed for singles who are looking for someone for a long-term commitment. One of the site’s main attractions is its scientifically based compatibility test, the fruit of more than 30 years of research by top psychologists. The test is at the heart of PARSHIP’s matching process and, in conjunction with your search criteria and other information you provide, produces your list of matches. On PARSHIP, your matches are called recommended partners, because each one of them has a personality profile that harmonises with and complements yours.
To help members feel comfortable with the whole process, PARSHIP prioritises privacy and security: for a start, member photos are never displayed on a general basis. If you want someone to see your photo, you share it on a one-to-one basis with the person of your choice – as and when you think it is the right moment to do so.
