By means of an objective, scientific process, the Parship Principle®, the service helps its members to find love. The compatibility-based online dating service is specifically for people who want to form a lasting, honest and sincere relationship.

Lucy, an IBM Programme Manager who met Pete through Parship two years ago, says: “I loved the compatibility test where I then stood a chance of meeting someone who I really was compatible with.

Because of this, I believe there is true honesty on the site by those who take the time to complete their profiles in detail and the compatibility test.

Your security is our number one priority, so all new member profiles are manually vetted and scrutinised by our in-house customer service team to make sure only genuine country people are on this site. So we've made Muddy Matches to reflect your busy, outdoors lifestyle. Lots of people live in the country but enjoy the buzz of the city, or some are city dwellers who like to don their wellies at weekends Take our Muddy-Townie quiz to get your ratio, wear it like a badge of honour and search for other members by their Muddy-Townie ratio.

We work hard to make sure that your safety and privacy are never compromised. You can use our site on your computer, tablet and mobile phone. If you’ve been on the site for a while it might be time to give your profile a makeover.

Just visit the Parship Magazine for general dating advice and even submit your own questions if you like.

Parship is designed to help discerning singles find meaningful relationships based on genuine compatibility factors and things that really matter.
