Chemistry.com offers an in-depth personality profile test that tries to match you with personalities that are compatible with you. Chemistry provides not only guided communication online, but tools for meeting offline and receiving valuable feedback. This service takes a scientific approach that requires little effort to find dates.
Profiles include standard physical and lifestyle information, photos and results of the personality test. Once you've completed your profile, you can access detailed information including charts and graphs explaining the results of your personality test. Your Chemistry profile will include both your major and minor personality types – Explorer, Negotiator, Builder and Director – and indicate how compatible you would be with other types.
You will receive matches based on your profile and personality test results. Matches include personality type and the member’s description. Because this is a guided online dating site based on compatibility, no member search options are available. However, Chemistry integrates your responses to matches, adapting future pairings to both your stated preferences and your actions.
You will receive matches based on your personality type from this dating site. No photos appear in this listing, but once you click on a member, you will see their profile and their photos. On most sites, a member’s profile information is front and center, but at Chemistry the emphasis is on compatibility, so you will see the analysis of your potential as a couple before the profile facts. After you’ve looked at the photos and reviewed both the analysis and the profile, you are asked to indicate your level of interest from fizzling to sizzling. This feedback is used to better refine future matches and reflects the trend in dynamic web design. Future matches will be based not only on what you say you want, but on how you respond.
Chemistry offers a guided communication system similar to eHarmony. You may “nudge” someone who has not responded to you once 48 hours have passed. And the website offers a guided approach for first dates in five steps, to help you find your perfect match. Unfortunately, you can’t read or send messages with this company unless you sign up for a subscription. If you’re looking to message matches without paying a fee, OkCupid lets you message matches without paying anything.
One downside to this dating site is that it doesn’t have a dedicated mobile app. You can access a mobile version of the site, but the mobile site is clunky and hard to navigate. We preferred dating sites that give you a seamless experience on both the app and the website. If you’re looking for a dating app to use on the go, Tinder is our favorite dating app because you can find matches almost anywhere and it’s simple to use.
Chemistry is one of the best online dating sites for people who are new to that world. Innovative features like dynamic matching and guided dating can put you at ease. You do not have the same level of control because you don't have as many search options as other online dating websites, but the matches the Chemistry system can find might work better anyway, and you've probably tried finding your own match – offline and on.
