Specific issues

The issues faced by single people as they look for love are diverse and often fascinating.

The questions for men are often different from the questions for women, especially when it comes to ‘traditional’ norms of behaviour as two people get to know each other. A divorced person with children will have different concerns from someone who is in search of their first serious relationship ... But fundamentally, they are all looking for happiness with someone who is genuinely compatible with them.

Do you have marriage in mind, or is it just that, for the moment, you want to find a girlfriend or find a boyfriend? … Do you have children? Do they live with you or your ex-partner - or are they now grown up and making their own lives? Could a long-distance relationship be viable for your? Or do you need to have someone just moments away to feel secure and happy? Do you want to continue to live in your own home, or would you be prepared to move somewhere new to be with a new partner?

Religious practices can also have a bearing on a budding relationship. Registration for PARSHIP does not involve stating your religious beliefs, but, as a serious relationship site, it is often the choice of single people who like the idea of Christian dating. Overall, PARSHIP appeals to anyone who wants to maintain high standards in their search for love.
