Compatible Partners is a dating website that caters to gay and lesbian online daters looking for a long-term relationship. Operated by the same company as the world-famous eharmony, it uses a modified version of their Compatibility Matching System, which is a far more robust matchmaking service when compared to many other gay and lesbian dating websites. Offering a whole pack of professional matchmaking services and interesting premium features, Compatible Partners attracted a thriving community of gay and lesbian online daters from all over the world.
Plans & Pricing
Compatible Partners offers two types of subscription plans: Standard and Premium. They are available in the following options:
The 3-Month Standard Plan will cost you $57.95/month and $70.95/month as Premium.
The 6-Month Standard Plan will cost you $34.95/month and $45.95/month as Premium.
The 12-Month Standard Plan will cost you $18.95/month and $27.95/month as Premium.
Ease of Use
You can register for free and view your matches upon completion, but you will need to pay for a membership in order to be able to start communicating with other members.
To kick off the lengthy registration process you simply fill out their relationship questionnaire to get your personality profile. It can take a while to complete this as there are a fair few questions, but you can easily pause and come back to it whenever you want.
Once you have selected a payment option for your membership, your questionnaire will be used to set you up with appropriate matches. So, while answering all the questions honestly will take some time, it will help to ensure you get matched with suitable members rather than wasting your time going over hundreds of profile manually.
Compatibility Matching System
The top feature found here is easily the Compatibility Matching System that has been used to huge success over at eharmony. It provides comprehensive matches for a very modest price, especially when you take into account how many popular gay and lesbian dating websites often lack in quality matching systems.
Compatible Partners also offers premium features for additional costs, such as the profile advisor that can help you to create a very unique yet honest profile that will help garner many better matches, or the premium profile that offers the chance to create a more in-depth and extended profile.
Another interesting premium feature you cannot find on many website is Secure Call, operated by a partner company Twilio, Inc. This service allows you to talk to another member via your own landline or mobile phone without having to disclose your personal phone number. This way you can get to know matches better before committing any personal details. This feature allows you to set the rhythm of your relationship without holding back from getting to know your potential matches.
The Rely ID feature lets your membership become verified as genuine, which can help you get more views and messages as members will know you are an authentic user. Both Secure Call and Rely ID features are included in the Total Connect Plan membership. However, you can still opt for the Basic Plan if you don’t want to splash so much money on extra features and purchase only the Rely ID feature separately. If you decide to benefit from the Rely ID feature, you will have to go through a verification process, which is entirely secured using encrypted communication standards so that nobody can get access to your personal information.
Toggling the incognito mode on and off is another option you get as a premium member. This means that you can choose to browse the site in incognito mode, without leaving traces of your visits on other people’s profile. This way, they will not know you viewed their profiles even if they are paying members.
Other common features include messaging services, the ability to upload and view photos, and finding out who is viewing your profile. You can also get talking to members more quickly if you prefer the fast-tracking option to skip the guided communication steps that offers advice on how to communicate with other members. This comes in handy if you are a novice with online dating and want to learn the ropes.
Safety is taken very seriously at Compatible Partners, with a strong emphasis placed on encouraging a safe online dating experience. They have a dedicated safety tips section that goes into detail about the various safety precautions you should be taking, which can be great for those who are new to the world of online dating. Customer support is available via an extensive FAQ section, and users can also email the support team for additional assistance.
