Chemistry is an online dating service provided by Match.com, to help singles meet and create relationships. Match.com, which began in 1995, is one of the pioneers of online dating and an expert in matching singles together. In the modern world, more and more singles are frustrated with finding resources to date amongst their busy schedules, limited acquaintances, and specific dating goals. With the famous personality test, designed to find compatibility, and easy-to-use online features, Chemistry offers to supply those resources to singles.
One of the standout features of Chemistry.com is the personality test designed by Dr. Helen Fisher, which matches singles according to personality compatibility in addition to their personal preferences. This quiz directs users to good matches, eliminating the hassle of trying to find one among a slew of potential candidates. These tools make Chemistry's ease of use stand out.
Match.com, Chemistry's parent company was founded in 1995 - over 20 years ago. This is a lot of experience for a company in a relatively new industry. On top of this, Chemistry.com is back by Dr. Helen Fisher. Dr. Fisher, a professor of anthropology, designed the matching algorithm that Match.com uses today. She has been featured in numerous articles and interviews talking about her research behind personality tests and relationships. Chemistry makes Match Quality a priority by having all users take a 45 minute personality/preference test upon registration. They take their matches seriously and have advanced matchmaking tools.
After you complete the personality test, Chemistry.com will personally review your information. It isn't quite as good as a background check, but verifying a user's email and information is a lot more than other online dating sites offer.

In order to actually do anything with your matches, you must subscribe to Chemistry.com. A 1-month subscription costs $34.99. The longer you subscribe, the less money you'll pay per month. A paid subscription includes the following features:
In the world of online dating today, it's rare to come across a site that doesn't offer a mobile app. Unfortunately, Chemistry.com is one of those few sites without an app. Online Dating is more often done on the go or when people have a few moments to kill. Having an online dating service that doesn't cater to this is a definitely negative.
Chemistry.com does not publish how many members they have on their site (active or inactive). Chemistry could be leaving out this critical information because there are so few members on their site, they don't want to discourage potential users from joining. The closest number we could find to members on their About Us page. This page states that 8 million people have taken the Chemistry Personality Test. Every day, Chemistry.com does get just under 100k visitors.
While Chemistry has great features, we have found reports of several scams conducted on the site. We'd expect this from any site so popular, but Chemistry could obviously improve by screening and verifying users more thoroughly. In the mean time, we advise potential users to abide by Chemistry's safety tips, provided on their website.
