PARSHIP success stories

All success stories

We would love to hear from you if you feel that your path to love was unusual or unexpected in any way. We're also interested in hearing from couples who had a very high compatibility rating and can't believe how well-matched you turned out to be.

PARSHIP is sometimes approached by magazines, newspapers and TV programmes looking for interesting relationship stories and we would offer a romantic dinner to our couples who share their stories with the media.

Please share as much information as possible using the following e-mail address: support@parship.ie

A short but intensive first date

After several years on my own and not dating, I decided it might be good to have someone to share things with. I tried going out to different venues and events but, as a lot of people find, it's really hard to meet people of similar age and interests.  more

Better late than never

Better late than never! I'd been a PARSHIP member for several months and had been in contact with a number of nice guys, although that special spark seemed to be missing every time.  more

Flowers and romance on the first date

Keith sent me a contact request just before Christmas. I wasn't a Premium Member of PARSHIP at the time, so I couldn't reply. After Christmas I decided to become a Premium Member and I haven't regretted the decision! Keith wasn't the only man I got into contact with through PARSHIP, but it was with him that things really led somewhere.  more

PARSHIP’s compatibility matching can set you on the route to success in finding a real relationship, but there are ways to help yourself along the path to happiness. For example, you should avoid being too rigid in your search criteria. Does it really matter deeply if a potential partner is a little older or shorter than your imagined ideal? You might also consider dating someone who lives outside your area. PARSHIP even enables you to make contact with people from other European countries - though not everyone is suited to a long-distance relationship. And if you read on someone’s profile that they are separated, not divorced yet, that doesn’t mean they are out of bounds.

PARSHIP is known as the professional dating service, and it is good to know what job someone does, but that should not lead you to make assumptions about him or her. What matters on PARSHIP is the compatibility of two people’s personalities, aspirations and lifestyles, not what they do for a living. You can also further yourself along the route to success by taking the initiative and actively making contact with other members. It is much less daunting to make the first move online than when you are in a bar or in the queue at the checkout desk!

You have the option of sending a contact request - a private message over PARSHIP’s internal email network - or why not try an Icebreaker - which is a fun way of showing you are interested. Just answer four quick quiz questions and then send the same four questions to the member who has captured your interest. Subsequently, you can see how your two sets of answers match up. Even simpler is to send a quick ‘Smile’ to someone whose profile appeals to you, or you can make a short ‘Comment’ if you especially like something they have included. Like everything else, a long-term relationship has to start somewhere. By making the first move, you could change your life forever.
