Online dating profiles

On PARSHIP, you have an online dating profile that works differently from profiles on ordinary dating sites. Above all, the results of your PARSHIP test indicate your level of compatibility with every one of your recommended partners. You will also notice immediately that your profile photo is not visible unless you choose to ‘release’ it on a one-to-one basis to someone of your choice. With the ‘About me’ page on your profile, you have the opportunity to supply further insights into the real you. Complete the page, and you stand to increase your chances of receiving approaches from other members. For tips on making the most of your online dating profile, read more in this section.

Dating profiles and beautiful pictures

Most people have an overpowering sense that they know straight away when they meet someone but in reality all they judge in those first minutes is how confident someone is and how good they are at presenting themselves and neither of these traits are that important for a relationship in real life.  more

Online dating profiles

Your online dating profile can set you on the path to a fulfilling relationship, so you should put some thought - and feeling - into what you tell other members about yourself. PARSHIP provides ‘About me’ questions and prompts to make it easier for you. Be confident, be positive - and be yourself, remembering that you’ve joined PARSHIP to find a real relationship for the real you. And, if you want to update your ‘About me’ page, you can do so whenever you want.

The ‘About me’ page provides a complement to your PARSHIP test results and to the compatibility score that applies to you and each of the recommended partners on your list. When you look at a profile, it is ‘About me’ that gives you a clearer picture of a potential partner’s appeal for you. If, however, they have not completed the ‘About me’ section, don’t just move onto the next profile. If a profile has piqued your interest in any way, take the initiative and send them a contact request, maybe with a question or two. If, on the other hand, they have completed their ‘About me’ page, make reference to it in your contact request. The online dating profile on PARSHIP tells you quite a lot about someone, but it is still very much the first stage: only by actively communicating with each other can you take things further.

A photo on your online dating profile is certainly an advantage too, especially as PARSHIP always puts your privacy first: your photo remains private at all times. It is your choice whether you ‘release’ it on a one-to-one basis to another member. It is important to choose a photo that shows you as you are, but also shows you at your best – and a smile always makes a positive difference. If you don’t feel confident about choosing a photo, why not ask a friend or family member for their thoughts on which shot really does you justice?
