Chemistry.com, the sister site of Match.com, aims to match people based on their compatibility test developed by Dr. Helen Fischer. She has been researching relationships for a number of decades and is also an anthropologist. The test places you in one of four categories (Director, Negotiator, Builder or Explorer) to help determine who you’ll be compatible with. This dating website is a great choice for singles looking for a committed relationship.
Features and Search
The registration at Chemistry.com starts with an in-depth personality quiz that takes about 30 minutes to fill in. There are images to choose from, multiple choice and short answer questions. For example they’ll ask detailed questions like “is your index finger longer than your ring finger?”.
A member receives 5 match suggestions every day, including information about these matches and ways to contact them. As soon as you indicate that you are interested in another member, there’s a “1-2-3 Meet” process that allows you to get to know this person before meeting them.
A fun feature is the “I’m Interested” button to send matches questions that are unique and different. Potential matches can send private messages to each other and they can “wink” to show interest. On the site you can observe the activity of your potential matches through “mystream”. There you see a snapshot of the site’s community based on your profile and settings. You can send people a “cheer” to show that you noticed them and their update.
The “5 Card Set” and the “Fortune Cookie” features also allow you to check whether you are compatible or not. If you need any tips and further help, Chemistry.com’s blog covers dating and relationship topics.
What is interesting about this website is that they give you lots of information about the different personality types. They let you know what makes you compatible with these other personality types. The list named “mymatches” will first show your matches’ personality type before they show his/her picture.

When you view a match and dislike him/her, they won’t show up in your match lists and won’t be able to contact you anymore. If a member wants to hide their profile, they can do so and re-activate their profile at a later date.
A member can show up in the website’s “member spotlight” if they wish to, this way their picture and profile will pop up in Chemistry.com ads and on partner sites. This feature is disabled by default to respect your privacy.
