Looking for a partner

From a girlfriend to a partner

If your aim is to find a girlfriend, you need to make sure you are using an online dating service that genuinely meets your expectations and requirements. More than 400,000 single people in Ireland are prepared to look for love on the Internet, so there are a lot of potential girlfriends out there on the Web!

In 2008, PARSHIP published a survey which examined the perceptions and attitudes of single people across Western Europe, including Ireland, It provided many fascinating insights into the attitudes of both men and women. If you are looking for a girlfriend, some of these pointers might prove useful. The fundamental position is this: it seems that, across Western Europe, women feel more comfortable with being single than men do. Women still like the idea of finding the right man for that all-important relationship, but overall they are less concerned with finding a boyfriend then single men are with finding a girlfriend.

What could your future girlfriend be looking for?

Honesty is the single most desirable attribute that women are looking for in a man. They also rate good communication skills very highly, and very much appreciate a man with an open mind and a good sense of humour. It is also important for a man to be in touch with his sensitive side: he shouldn’t be too much of a know-it-all or attempt to dominate every situation. Interestingly, women no longer expect a man to assume the traditional role of the male protector … It seems that single women today tend to know what they want and how to take care of themselves.

PARSHIP: for a girlfriend who is really right for you

All that does not, of course, mean that single women no longer want to have a stable, fulfilling relationship with a man who is genuinely compatible with them. That is where PARSHIP.ie comes in.
