PARSHIP & dating

Objective: marriage

In the USA and Europe, as many as one marriage in six is the consequence of an online encounter, while almost half of Ireland’s single men and women feel that they have a chance of finding love online.

Some dating sites still put the emphasis on fun, but in recent years there has been a notable development of what might be termed matchmaking sites or relationship sites. These serve the needs of single people who have gone online to find a partner for a stable relationship, and perhaps marriage. PARSHIP is an example and its Premium Members record a success rate of nearly 40% when it comes to finding love.

The success of a marriage – or of any committed relationship – depends on the compatibility of the couple in question. In contrast to other dating sites, PARSHIP’s matching process is driven by balancing the factors that make two people deeply compatible: their personalities, their aspirations, their attitudes and their lifestyle. This is the essence of what produces your list of recommended partners on PARSHIP, but the search criteria you set also come into play: for instance, your preferred age/location for a potential partner, whether they have children living with them, whether they smoke, etc.

With marriage in mind

Central to PARSHIP’s matching process is a compatibility test, developed by scientists on the basis of more than 30 years of research into the dynamics of relationships. The test takes about 20 minutes to do – and even includes a question about your ideas on marriage. Respecting that its members are serious about finding a serious relationship, PARSHIP sets particular store by providing a service that ensures discretion and security for its users. Profiles are personally checked by PARSHIP’s customer service team before they are published on the site, and the site protects your anonymity in a number of ways – not least by never exposing member’s photos for general scrutiny. You choose the moment when you want to share your photo – entirely on a private, one-to-one basis with any other member of your choice.

PARSHIP’s members appreciate these aspects of the service which make it different from other dating sites. Whether looking for a long-term relationship or with marriage very much in mind, you can rely on PARSHIP to recommend potential partners who are likely to be your kind of people.
