Compare Parship to

Compare Parship and Tallsingles, comparison dating site, comparison site,, Parship

In this article, we compare Parship to to give you an honest comparison.

So what is PARSHIP?

PARSHIP states on their site that they are the online dating service for people with higher expectations of life and of a relationship.

Once registered you take PARSHIP’s compatibility test. The fascinating test is free of charge — and takes just 20 minutes or so.

Once you have completed the test and provided some further information about yourself, you can view your list of matches (without their photo unless you subscribe immediately), they also provide you with the results of your personality test.

So what are the key differences?

1. Setting up your profile

On Parship, the initial login process sets up most of your profile (but it does take 25 to 30 minutes). Once your basic profile is complete you can add more written detail such as your likes, a little about you and who you want to find.

On, you can actually skip most of the initial questions (not that we recommend it) and get into the main site in about 5 minutes.

Once you are through that stage, you can then take a look around and go back and complete your full profile (which you must do!).

2. Can you run your own searches for potential dates?

On Parship you cannot run searches for potential matches, the site picks the matches for you. On you can run as many searches you like, selecting and de-selecting criteria and even change the location.

3. What are the membership levels and what features do they give you?

On Parship, there are two levels of membership, free and paid. With free membership, you can view your match’s profiles (but importantly not their photos) and the results of your personality test.

With an upgrade to paid membership you get to:

  • See your match’s photos
  • See who has viewed you
  • Send and receive unlimited messages
  • Search your local area (but only for profiles which match yours)
  • View the list of profiles that view your profile
  • Regular updated partner suggestions.

The free subscription on, allows you to search members profiles (getting access to their entire profile including photos), complete your profile and receive messages.

The paid subscription on allows you to:

  • Read and send messages
  • Put yourself in the Spotlight
  • Send gifts to members you like
  • Chat online with members
  • Subscribe to mobile alerts
  • Write your own dating diary

4. Cost

So a key consideration is and should be cost.

So how much does Parship cost? Well like most dating sites they don’t publish that on their site, I have registered for free and clicked for an upgrade.

The price I was quoted for the upgrade to paid membership was as follows:

  • 12 month’s membership – £14.90 per month (£178.80 for the period)
  • 6 month’s membership – £19.90 per month (£119.40 for the period)
  • 3 month’s membership – £29.90 per month (£89.70 for the period)

On the other hand costs:

  • 6 month’s membership – £13.33 per month (£79.95 for the period)
  • 3 month’s membership – £16.66 per month (£49.95 for the period)
  • 1 month’s membership – £24.95

So 6 month membership is 49% cheaper than Parship

5. Number of members has 1.5 million members so we are confident there will be someone in your area. We found that there were much fewer matches on Parship. But we suggest you join both for free to make that comparison yourself.

Don’t make your online dating profile too picky!

online dating profile too picky, online profile, dating, singles, smartphone

Don’t join online dating and be picky!  This article explains why you don’t want to make your online dating profile too picky.

What do we mean by picky?

By picky we mean are you asking for too many things from your ideal partner.

Do you want them to be athletic, tall, slim, with blue eyes, a doctor or financial analyst, enjoy walks, be great at cooking, funny, witty, good character, degree educated, big built, look like David Beckham… and so the list continues.

It tends to be a trait of women’s profiles, but men also do the same. I think we can sum it up by saying are you looking for prince charming.

How to stop being picky!

Next time you log into your profile, go and re-read it and ask yourself how many things am I asking for in your ideal partner?

If its 1-2 you can probably include one more, if it’s 3-4 that’s about right, if it’s 5 plus you definitely want to think about taking a few things out!

Many of you are now covering your faces going “yes that sounds like me!” and if you’re not many of you should be.

It’s something which is very common and even if you haven’t put it in your profile many women have it in their head, which affects things when they meet up for the first date as they are constantly assessing.

Is being picky a problem?

Now we are not saying that you shouldn’t be picky, after all, you are going to be spending the rest of your life with this person if things get serious and there is no point in doing that with the wrong person!

Being a little choosy goes a long way.

Just look at the high rates of divorce, infidelity, domestic violence, crappy relationships etc… you definitely don’t want to get to the stage where you are walking down the aisle thinking that things aren’t right!

It’s not really about being “picky” it’s about being unrealistic. Can you really ask for all that? Well if you want to, you’re going to be single for a very very long time.

It’s all about compromise

Remember that with marriage comes compromise, you have to learn to accept those small things that aren’t quite to your liking, you will learn to overcome them!

Focus on your deal breakers first and then re-evaluate the rest of your list

So if you’re someone with 5 or more requirements list them out and then decide which is really important. Is it that he is funny, trustworthy, is honest, has compassion etc.?

Think hard and go for what you would call the deal breakers and then take all the others out of your profile.

An interesting requirement that the majority of people have is looks! But we tend to think that is over-rated. Let’s push it to an extreme:

Imagine you had met him/her and they had the looks you were always lusting after. You get into a relationship but it turns violent, they are aggressive, foul-mouthed and couldn’t care less about you.

On the same day that you were messaged by them, someone else had messaged you, they weren’t quite as good looking, so you rejected them.

Had you have gone out with them, you would have found that they were warm-hearted, fun loving, caring and a great person to be around. Would you feel stupid?

Now we are not saying that looks don’t matter. You do need a little bit of spark and lust when you meet up, but overall how important is it to you?

What to do if you are a picky person?

So you feel you are a picky person, here are the next steps you should follow:

1. Edit your profile – make sure it only contains 2 or 3 requirements, which are your absolute deal breakers!

2. Go on a date – anyone who matches those requirements who you’re messaging gets to go on a date. ANYONE!! You are now beginning to expand your horizon, be open-minded and remember that they have the three most desirable qualities you were looking for.

3. Broaden your “type” but trust your gut, there is a lot to be said for gut instinct so if you go with the approach and it still doesn’t feel right it’s probably best to leave it there. However, you might just find a little gem which you wouldn’t have previously given a second glance!

Choosing the right person is one of the most difficult aspects of internet dating, but we hope that this might have given you a few things to think about.

If you were a “picky” person and you tried this technique we would love to hear from you.

As always we wish you all the best in your search for love online.

Stand out from the online dating crowd and avoid these profile cliches

avoid these profile cliches, online profile, online dating, online dating profile

As we have mentioned on here before in order to be successful online you need to stand out from the crowd.  We take a look at how to avoid these profile cliches.

People reading the following clichés will have heard them time and time again. So give yourself the best possible chance of being spotted and avoid these right now.

1: Common situations made idyllic but with no individual take on why you enjoy it, such as: Walking on the beach holding hands, or cuddling up next to a log fire, or watching the sunset over mountains.

Here you really are stating the obvious, I mean who wouldn’t like either of these situations.


Yes, you may enjoy these but so do 90 percent of the population.

Instead of this talk about why you enjoy the things you like.

Such as I enjoy mountain biking because… or I enjoy exploring new places and seeing new things because…. By presenting a unique take on a common experience it will help you stand out.

2: Spelling out the most common date, such as:  I Love dinner and a movie, or love a Sunday walk followed by a roast dinner in a pub.

Again its 90 percent of the population’s most common date, it screams I’m not very imaginative.


Don’t put the words on your profile into describing your ideal date, put them into describing something about what you want from a relationship.

Describe why you want to meet someone and how you feel the partnership can tackle those obstacles you come across.

3: Stating clothing choices, such as equally comfortable in joggers or smart attire. Is this really your best selling point? Do you really need to mention this in the most important piece of free text that you have to grab someone’s attention?


If clothing is really important to you its ok to say so, but you need to point out why it is.

For example, does dressing smart empower you, or do you dress casually as you like to get out of the house in order to explore local places etc.

4: Spelling out you know how to treat a lady/man. This is along the right lines, but you need to tell them how you go about this, as people have different opinions on the best way to treat someone.


Instead of telling someone you know how to treat the opposite sex well tell them how you treat them well.

Perhaps you’re the old style romantic who would always open the door, or you always fix dinner for your guy, or perhaps you would always treat them to breakfast in bed on the weekend?

5: The most common one, let me guess you have never done this before? No one is born to internet date so at one point everyone has never done it before. Please don’t waste words writing this.


There is no real alternative, just avoid it!

Also, avoid saying that you have been burnt or hurt in previous relationships. Also, stop feeling sorry for yourself. Nobody wants to spend time with someone who sounds like they are sorry for themselves!


So avoid these profile cliches and you will stand out in the dating crowd!

5 top tips when choosing your online dating username

choosing your online dating username

Here is our guide to choosing your online dating username

1. Get it right first time

On the vast majority of dating sites, your username is the only thing you cannot change once selected. So take great care in choosing it.

It will be one of the first things that a dating site asks you to choose (if they require it) and we would, therefore, suggest if they do you stop there and have a think about it.

2. Do not mention any body parts!

For some unknown reason people like to mention one of their body parts in their username, this is usually a complete turn off for the opposite sex.

Examples we have seen are “Long_D**k”, “Big_T***”, you get the picture.

These are probably fine on adult dating sites but are a definite no for mainstream ones.

3. Do not mention romantic connotations

Again a complete turn off for the opposite sex so avoid where possible. Everyone is on a dating site to find romance and love, you don’t need to spell it out in your username.

Examples are “cupid_1122”, “I_Heart_U_11”, you get the picture.

4. Don’t go for video game, cartoon or comic character names.

One really more the men! Loads of you choose names that are character names from comics, video games or cartoons.

Yes, you might be into these but you don’t want to make that obvious from the moment a woman searches for you!

You want to introduce them to that later on! Plus a username like that does make you look a little childish, which again is a complete turn-off.

5. Try to mention something that sums you up in your username

Try to bring something about you into your username, but only if it isn’t completely boring. This should spark some interest, enticing someone to read on, but it also a fairly easy way to select a username.


So that’s our quick guide to choosing your online dating username.

5 little-known factors that could affect your ability to find a date online

ability to find a date online, dating, online dating, singles,

In this post, we reflect on 5 factors that could affect your ability to find a date online.

1. Compromise

I have said on here previously that online dating has revolutionised the way we now go about meeting single people, but how it has given everyone choice when dating.

For example, do you want to meet someone with brown eyes or blue eyes? Do they have to have brown or blonde hair?

This choice also means that people seem to think they can meet someone who is “their dream” date and has no flaws.

The reality I’m afraid is that nobody is perfect and if you think that you are affecting your chances of finding love online.

The number of times I have heard people say after a good date. Well, she was really nice, but she…. usually the but’s are minor but as everyone has this ideal in their head, they stop seeing them in search of that one, which they sadly may never find!

Ask any happy couple, are there things you would like to change about your husband/wife?

The usual answer is yes, but they accept that they are different and learn to live with it.

This is something you MUST do if you want to find love online.

2. Commitment – in terms of replying and communicating

Online dating isn’t something you can do half-heartedly.

In order to be successful, you need to commit to finding love online. That means you need to:

  • 2.1. Search profiles, find people you would like to find out more about and message them!
  • 2.2. Reply to messages you receive on a timely basis
  • 2.3. Log in reguarly to make sure you appear at the top of the search results.
  • 2.4. Work on your profile, make sure your photos are great and that your free text is well written and promotes a response.
  • 2.5. Arrange dates with people you chat with.

If you show commitment, it will come across to other people on the site.

If you were single you would much rather meet with someone who is committed to finding someone special over someone who is not.

So show commitment (I know that work freaks some of you single people out but it really is a must!)

3. Confidence

Along the same lines as commitment, you need to show confidence… not to the point of arrogance but you certainly don’t want to come across like a wet lettuce.

Remember you are an exciting, wonderful person to meet, so why not be confident about it.

Confidence needs to come across in your profile, your messages and on that first date.

Nobody likes to be with someone who isn’t proud of themselves and confident that they are a great person to meet!

4. Honesty

The simple rule is to be honest from day 1! If your not honest from the start its difficult to be honest if things go well and the relationship flourishes.

When you talk to most people about why a relationship broke down, the most common response is that one of them lied about something.

5. Joining the right dating site from the start

You must join the right dating site from the start. Otherwise, you are not giving yourself the best opportunity to find love online.

All dating sites offer a free trial membership. We suggest you use this period to take a look around the site, run some searches to find people you might like to date and get to experience the dating community.

Why not join 2 or 3 sies for free so that you can then make an informed decision as to which you like best.

So there you have it, 5 factors which may be affecting your ability to find a date online


There may be other problems of course, so why not take a look at the following blog articles to rule these out:

Top 8 tips for replying to an online dating message

8 tips for replying to an online dating message, online dating, dating, single, profile

Here are our top 8 tips for replying to an online dating message:

1. Get the length right

So you want to make sure you get the length of the message right!

If they have only written a couple of paragraphs to you, you only need to write a couple back.

Also getting into a long written conversation is not what you want to do! You want to write a couple of times and then arrange a date to meet in person!

Over time your messages will naturally get longer, but the first few can be fairly short as you’re getting to know one another.

2. Answer their question (if they included one).

Most initial emails from other people will include a question.

Make sure you answer that question in your response.

If you don’t it shows that you haven’t taken the time to read and understand their question. Which will not be a good signal to them.

3. Don’t include personal details

Don’t include your personal email or mobile number as there is no need to.

These are also classic examples of a scammer at work. So if it asks for this detail, either don’t go back, but if you want to reply do so with caution.

The number one rule is don’t include any personal information (such as phone number, email address or postal address).

Keep this to yourself until you are sure it is safe to disclose these details.

4. Write as you speak

To come across natural try to write your message as you would speak it.

Since it is short you could record it to your smartphone and then replay when it is time to type it out!

5. Include a question back

Always ask a question back as it should prompt a response.

We advise that you put a question at the end of your reply, this will be the last thing the person receives the email remembers and they will want to respond right away (fingers crossed).

6. Don’t try and make it funny

Don’t try and make the response a funny one!

It will only go to look like you are forcing the humour into your reply and that will not be a great read!

So just be natural in your response, if you think of something that is funny while you’re writing it then great, but don’t as I say intentionally go out of your way to make it funny.

7. Show them you have read their profile.

Try to drop hints in your response that show you have read their profile.

Try to pick up on something that is within your profile.

As we have always maintained, if you take some time in your profile and messages it shows you are serious and if you can demonstrate that you are much more likely to get a positive response.

8. Avoid spelling and grammatical errors

Avoid these errors by writing your response in a word processor (e.g. Microsoft word first) and then copying and pasting it into your message to reply.

No one likes to read something that contains a lot of spelling or grammatical errors.


So there you go! That’s our 8 tips for replying to an online dating message.

Take your time and get the reply right, this could be the start of great things to come!

5 Ways to make your online dating profile stand out from the others

Woman Looking at her online dating profile, online dating, dating profile, online dating profile
Woman Looking at her online dating profile

So how do you make your online dating profile stand out from the 1,000’s of others that are on there? Well here are our top tips

1. Join the right site

Take some time to work out which site is best to join.

Think about whether you fit the ideal profile for that site, we would also recommend you consider some niche sites as there are some great ones out there, here are a few examples of bad choices:

1.1 You’re a 5’0’’ male and you join (ok a bit extreme but you get the point)

1.2 You want someone to understand you and you want to find a long-term partner so you join Tinder! (again a little extreme but you get the point)

Consider joining a couple of sites for free so that you get a feel for who they have as members and if there is someone you could see yourself with registered on the site.

At this stage, you should also consider how many registered members live in your area as we believe it’s important that you date close to home.

2. Good photo

90% of profiles have a terrible main photo. So read our article and get it right!

You will want to consider the lighting, getting someone else to take it and making it look like you.

Remember when search results appear they are going to show your main photo!

So it’s one of the first things someone will see, usually even before reading any of the free text on your profile.

Do not even think about NOT uploading a photo. If you want your profile seen you need a profile.

Profiles with a photo get looked at 60% more times than those that don’t have a photo!

3. Pick the right multiple choice answers

So you’re on the right website, but you also want to get seen by the right members on that site, so make sure you select the right answers in the multiple choice section of your profile.

These all help the online dating site select the correct profiles for people running a search of members.

4. Great free text

Get the free text right on your profile.

These are the sections where you can write about yourself. So make it engaging, exciting tell them something that is going to make them want to find out more about you.

Take the opportunity to be unique and this is where you can really stand out.

You can read more about this in our great article here.

5. Get to the top of search results

Get to the top of search results by logging into your account on a regular basis and updating your photo and profile every other week.

Online dating sites have to sort the search results if many people fit the right criteria, the usual way this is done is based on “last activity” and possibly new material added to your profile.

So to get to the top log on regularly and update your profile regularly.

So there you have it, 5 Ways to make your online dating profile stand out from the others.

How to find the tall man of your dreams

Find the tall man of your dreams, dreams, tall man,
Find the tall man of your dreams

In this blog post we discuss how to find the tall man of your dreams.

Perhaps you want to find that tall single man because you are tall yourself and want to be able to wear high heels when your on a night out and still be shorter.

Or perhaps you like the sense of security that comes with dating a tall man.

Or is it simply that tall men come across strong and powerful to you.

There could be any number of reasons, but now you have decided that’s what you want how do you go about finding them?

But before we look at how to go about finding a tall man.

Could it actually be you and your mindset that is holding you back?

Could it be your mindset that has stopped you finding a tall single man, rather than not looking in the right place?

So let’s take a look at some of the things you could be doing wrong that is preventing you from finding love.

Understand yourself

Understanding yourself is a really great exercise.

Remember all those faults you have, your eventual partner is going to have to accept and live with.

Have you ever thought about what they are? Would you be willing to put up with them yourself?

Really knowing yourself will make you much more ready to meet someone else.

Though personal growth is a lifelong process, if you’re struggling to figure out who you are, it’ll be much more difficult to figure out what you want in a relationship.

Be aware of your flaws and how you might address them when you meet someone.

Will you just try and dampen them? Or are you willing to try and give them up for good?

You might, for example, be very short tempered, perhaps your cure when you meet someone might be to walk out the room when you feel a hot rage coming on?

Don’t expect perfection

The media these days really try to sell us the “perfect” person.

But in reality, they don’t exist.

Admit it, you’re not perfect. No one is.

If you are looking for perfection you will never find him.

Does it matter if he is an inch shorter than you would ideally like him to be?

Understand what types of annoying habits rile you so much they’re a deal-breaker and be upfront about those, as well as those you don’t think of as a big deal.

If you can’t stand a forgetful man, you may have to bend on something else to find one who never forgets an anniversary or errand.

Just think the guy you turn away, for one small imperfection, might tick all the other boxes!

Should you have turned him down? Will you regret it afterwards?

Be happy being alone

Make sure you are content with your own company before looking to share it with someone else.

If you can spend time alone, it will mean that when you find someone to share your life with, you will quickly realise if it’s for you or not.

You should have enough meaning in your own life — through your friendships, work, and outside interests — to make you a person who is happy on her own but ready for commitment.

To be ready for that new guy in your life, make some “alone time”

If you spend all of your free time with friends or family, you are much more likely to be co-dependent.

There is also an added benefit to spending time alone.

You will also be a more fun person to meet because you’ll be excited to talk about all the things that matter to you

Love yourself

To find someone who loves you, you have to love who you are!

This doesn’t mean that you have to completely love every part of yourself, but that you are confident and happy in who you are.

Being aware of your flaws is part of loving yourself, and it will make you a much more grounded person in a relationship.

Never brag about who you are and what you can offer.

Just know that you are a worthwhile person deep down

Don’t think that finding the man of your dreams will make you love yourself, it won’t.

You need to build self-confidence yourself.

But I can assure it, loving yourself will make all relationships much easier.

dreams, tall man, tall single man, tall love
Finding the tall man of your dreams

So now you have all that sorted, let’s get back to finding the man of your dreams.

So what can you do now to find the tall man of your dreams?

Take up a hobby or something you are very passionate about

If you take up a hobby, you may well meet someone there who is also into that hobby.

And the best thing is that you have common ground.

Something you already know you can talk to each other about.

Visit places where men you are interested in may be

Along the same lines as the point above.

You cannot sit at home and expect to meet the man of your dreams.

Physically going to places where men will be will greatly increase your chance.

Sobbing your heart out in front of Bridget Jones on the sofa might be a good night it, but it definitely won’t help!

If you want a man that cares about the community, go volunteer for a charity organization.

If you want a man that is an animal lover, visit a dog park or animal shelter.

If you are interested in a man of a certain religion, visit a church, mosque, or temple that is in line with your beliefs.

If you are into art, visit art galleries and art shows.

If you have a specific man in mind, go places where you know he likes to hang out.

Tell as many friends and family as you can that you are looking for love.

Tell friends and family that you are looking for love and ask them to share the news.

This means you get a really large reach with your message.

Imagine you tell 40 people and they all manage to tell 50 people. That means 2,000 people know about your quest for love.

That’s even without thinking about the second 50 people talking to their friends and family.

Potentially the news could spread far and wide.

If your friends know of someone, ask them to introduce you to the person in a group setting.

A group dinner or a group activity can help you get a feel for the person.

If you are feeling bold, have your friends set you up on a blind date.

Be adventurous and do something out of the norm

For example, you might go to a gym near work but not your local gym.

Why not one-weekend venture to the local gym, the man of your dreams might be waiting inside?

Or you might always go to your local coffee shop for a coffee at the weekend, why not go to the next towns coffee shop instead.

Trying to meet and mix with as many new faces as possible might just help you.

And finally, what about joining a dating site (yes we have said it!)

Are you totally new to internet dating?

If you are read on, if not skip to the next section.

There is nothing Taboo now about joining a dating site.

If you are trying to find the tall man of your dreams, they can really help.  Why? Well because you can use the power search engines to filter on the tall men!

You see in the search functions on most sites (like for example), you can filter your potential matches on height.

Many studies have been carried out to establish whether or not a link exists between height and success. In this post, we look to answer the question, does being tall make you a success?

Many of these studies look at the relationship between several seemingly innocuous physical features (e.g., body height) and occupational success. It turns out that shorter people are considered to have an advantage in certain sports (e.g., gymnastics, race car driving, etc.), whereas in many other sports taller people have a major advantage (e.g basketball – the one sport which most tall people are asked about!)

In most occupational fields, body height is not relevant to how well people are able to perform but nonetheless has been found to correlate with their success in several studies, although there may be other factors such as gender or socioeconomic status that explain this. Do taller people carry more confidence and thus this, in turn, assists them to dominate discussions in the boardroom for example?

One area in which it can be seen that height plays a part is in politics. In the United States presidential elections, the taller candidate won 22 out of 25 times in the 20th century. Nevertheless, Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, was 1.5 m (4 ft 11 in) and several prominent world leaders of the 20th century, such as Vladimir Lenin, Benito Mussolini, Nicolae Ceaușescu and Joseph Stalin were of below average height. These examples, however, were all before modern forms of multi-media, i.e., television, which may further height discrimination in modern society.

Further, growing evidence suggests that height may be a proxy for confidence, which is likewise strongly correlated with occupational success.
