The world of PARSHIP

PARSHIP is an online dating service, but it’s different from other online dating services you might have tried. First and foremost, it is serious about relationships. First launched in 2001, PARSHIP has since matched tens of thousands of happy couples around Europe. (In some countries, it is estimated that one in six marriages is now the result of an initial contact online.) These pages of PARSHIP’s online magazine provide additional insights into online dating and into how, with the help of the Internet, more and more men and women of all ages and backgrounds are finding the relationship they want – and deserve.

Why do Christian Singles Join Parship?

Finding love can be difficult at the best of times, and when you want to share your faith with the love of your life it can seem to be an uphill struggle.  more

Parship feedback

We’re determined to offer one of the best dating services available and we can only be sure of doing so if people tell us what they find useful as well as suggesting ideas for improving the service. Dating with Parship is based on our scientifically developed compatibility rating and this only changes gradually; however all other aspects of the service can be updated as and when appropriate suggestions are made.  more

What our members look for in a relationship

As once again we sit glued to the love trials of Lady Edith and co, research from PARSHIP, Europe’s largest matchmaking website shows that we are now approaching dating with more old-fashioned ideals.

Why choose PARSHIP?

There are many different dating sites that we can access on the internet; some are free, while other charge a subscription. Some are more suited to fun dating, which may or may not lead to actual meetings.  more

Online dating: today’s way to find love

Over that time the Internet has grown tremendously in sophistication, but many dating sites still work in a surprisingly basic fashion, simply matching people with the help of a few tick-boxes. It can be hard to know where to start if, having clicked ‘Search’, you are faced with page after page of apparently random matches -- possibly with a photo to catch your eye. Is that really the best way to find love online?  more

Choosing a relationship site

There are now dating websites to serve the widely differing priorities and aspirations of single people. For those men and women who are looking forward to meeting a partner for a durable and fulfilling relationship, some dating services take a more serious-minded approach to the process, and these can be described as relationship sites.  more

PARSHIP & Dating

For someone who expects more out of a relationship, PARSHIP is the dating site to choose. The service’s matching process is centred around a scientific compatibility test, which is specially designed to put set you on the path to finding ‘the one for you’ – and, as you know well, that won’t be just anyone.

Based on more than thirty years of academic research into relationships, the PARSHIP compatibility test assesses some thirty aspects of your personality, all of which play a key role in the way you approach a relationship and your behaviour when in a relationship. Together with the search criteria you set and the information you supply on your activities and interests, the test generates your list of recommended partners – people whose profiles indicate a high degree of compatibility with yours. A compatibility score for each of your matches indicates just how well the two of you are matched.

PARSHIP’s members appreciate the service’s emphasis on discretion and security. Your privacy is protected and you are put very much in control. Each member’s profile and photo(s) are personally checked by our customer services team to help ensure that your matches are genuine people who are looking for a serious relationship. As for your photos, you can be confident that they will never be generally visible on PARSHIP: they remain private and you ‘release’ them on a one-to-one basis to a member of your choice, exactly when it suits you to do so.

All in all, PARSHIP sets the standard for online dating. It has become known as a professional dating service, and its members understand it as a relationship site. First and foremost, it is here to help you in finding ‘the one for you’ and the relationship you deserve.
