Singles

These days, singles are making news. It used to be heard in the context of ‘singles nights’ or ‘singles bars’, but the term ‘singles’ has taken on a new importance in the age of online dating as men and women of all ages and backgrounds turn to the Internet to find love -- whether they are looking for their first serious relationship or moving on from a divorce or widowhood.

How do singles get started with online dating?

There are around 1.2 million singles in Ireland – about a quarter of the total population -- ranging from young people who are thinking about a serious relationship for the first time, to widowed, separated or divorced men and women who are looking forward to a new beginning.

With online dating, singles with packed schedules can make the choice to go online to meet potential partners. At the first stages, it is very different from the traditional dating game, which was more likely to rely on seeing someone across a bar or at a party, getting ‘set up’ by friends or getting to know someone through work. With PARSHIP, singles who have high expectations of life and of a future partner receive personalised recommendations of people who could be right for them. The matching process on PARSHIP is driven by a compatibility test, produced and maintained by top psychologists and based on over 30 years of research into relationships. The result: nearly 40% of singles who become Premium Members of PARSHIP report that the service has helped them find someone special.
