Chemistry.com, which is a partner site to Match.com, aims to pair compatible singles through a variety of personalized options and chemistry tests. The site boasts its ability to help members get to know someone online in order to make the first date feel like the second. Similar to eHarmony, but with a smaller user base and an accepting approach to all sexualities, Chemistry.com is a solid choice for commitment-minded singles.

Ease of Use

Chemistry.com has a more basic layout compared to Match.com, but its simplistic page directory makes site navigation ideal. Once new members register, the personality assessment and matching system are easy to follow. The simple search tools consist of basic options, and users also can sort by specific criteria. Search results provide members with a large dating pool where each match is given a probability of chemistry, making it easy to choose between matches.

Like Match.com, Chemistry.com has email and phone support. Customer service representatives are available Monday-Friday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Central Standard Time.

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Engaging personality evaluation.
  • Suggested matches provided on a regular basis with personality comparisons.
  • Fun ways to flirt with other members.
  • Customer service available by phone and email.

Cons

  • Must pay for a membership in order to search for matches outside of provided search results.
  • Not enough information in the dating advice section.
  • Automated replies from email support.

The Bottom Line

Chemistry.com’s personality test is very engaging and allows for more accuracy with its matching suggestions . The site's unique flirting tools make Chemistry.com easy for shy singles to interact. However, there are several stages to go through in order to communicate with other members beyond flirting, but you receive a variety of matches, each with an explanation of why that match fits with your personality. The site is very basic and certain features are only available to paying members.
