Signing Up

Parship Registration
  • Register for free
  • Sign-up with Facebook
  • Parship Principle (compatibility test and matching based on a scientific set of questions)

The result of this personality test is where your matching partner recommendations and compatibility results with your matches will be based.

Making Contact

Parship Messaging
  • Send a Smile
  • Send an Icebreaker
  • Release your photos to other members
  • Like photos
  • Members cannot send messages until they complete at least 50% of their profile
  • Sending messages to other users is free for everyone

Parship offers its members various ways to communicate. It has free and paid contact features that members can use to establish a connection with other Parship singles. However, before they could initiate a conversation, members ought to complete at least 50% of their profile first. Parship encourages its members to complete their profile as detailed profiles get more attention. One way of making a profile complete is by uploading photos. However, members' photos are blurred until they are released by profile owners.

Aside from exchanging messages, members can also like photos, send a smile, and send an "icebreaker" (a questionnaire with four questions), which is a great way of determining the similarity of members' points of view. 

Profile Quality

Parship Female Profile
  • Most profiles are organised properly
  • Photos are blurred unless released
  • Displays occupation instead of name
  • Shows profile completeness in percentage
  • Shows compatibility details
  • The profiles are very detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Profile pictures are visible to nobody for free

Parship members' profiles are mostly detailed and informative. This is because they are encouraged to make their profiles more noticeable by making them complete and as comprehensive as possible, but without having to reveal too many private details, such as members' name and personal contact information.

Parship only allows its Premium Members to view profile photos. For its basic users, photos are blurred until they are released. Also, instead of displaying the names or aliases of profile owners, what is shown is their profession. There is also information on how complete a member's profile is, which serves as a reminder, especially to owners of incomplete profiles, to completely fill-out and accomplish all the fields of their profile page. In addition, a useful tool in determining members' like-mindedness, which is the members' compatibility level, based on their personality, habits, and interests, can also be seen on their profile page.

Real Life Review

"I consider myself as a late bloomer. For the last 27 years of my existence, I haven't been in a relationship. When I was in junior high, I thought I would have my first girlfriend because she was extra sweet and caring to me and only to me. However, she told me that friendship was all that she could offer. 

When I was 21, I, again, thought that I would be in my first relationship because the girl I was flirting with seemed to be equally interested in me. Again, it didn't flourish. Two years after college, my friends were either getting engaged or married. As melodramatic as it may sound, I started to feel hopeless.

Then a friend of mine encouraged me to try online dating. Seemed like a desperate move, to be honest, but nothing to lose, so I did. Of course, I looked for a dating site with good reviews and found Parship, then I signed up. Fortunately, I met someone really nice. In fact, we have just celebrated our anniversary.

Design and Usability

Parship's web design is simple, appealing, and modern. It did a good job in its overall presentation. It looks neat, organised, and user-friendly. Parship is set on a white-red background with minimal graphic elements. However, some of its pages, sometimes, do not load properly. Still, the fonts are easy to read and the tabs are easy to navigate. All these elements give its users convenience in reading.

Editors Conclusion

Photo Chris
Parship is regarded as one of the most successful dating agencies in Germany. It aims to help singles find a serious and long-term relationship by means of the Parship Principle. This principle utilises a scientific and analytical test to determine the members' compatibility with each other, making the site's matchmaking algorithms more accurate. Thus, even if the site's premium membership costs a bit expensive compared to other dating sites, it might be worth the try as you get to be sure that your match is only the best for you. If you are serious in looking for a better half whom you can share your life with, and if you want your match to be accurately compatible with you, then Parship could probably lead you to your beau.
