Chemistry is for people who are looking for lasting relationships. It provides a scientifically inspired personality test that is meant to help you to find your ideal mate. Basic membership is free but expect to pay for extras.
They won't teach you how to use a Bunsen burner or grow your own salt crystals, but Chemistry.com could open up your personal life to an "explosion" of possible romantic relationships.
Upon joining, each member is given a unique, scientific personality test created by love expert Dr. Helen Fisher. This fun test is designed to make matchmaking easier for their computer-based match system. Upon completion of the personality test, you'll automatically be matched with other members whose answers are compatible with yours. At least that's the idea!
The Matching Process
Just like eHarmony, they match people based on the results of their personality test, however Chemistry's test is a little shorter and less probing that the one at eHarmony.
After you've completed your chemistry profile, you'll be notified when people are found who's personality-type is compatible with yours. You'll get about five of these every day.
Once you've chosen a potential romantic partner among these compatible individuals, it will lead you through the process of corresponding and, eventually, meeting your chosen match. This guidance can take some of the fear out of dating a stranger you've never seen before. Indeed, after some intimate messaging it may be you and your chosen match are strangers no longer.
Chemistry.com is a well respected site that's been around for a long time - it's run by Match.com. It has a high percentage of female members, and is better suited to those searching for a long-term compatible other.
You can take their compatibility test for free and receive matches, but expect to pay if you want to take things further.

The bad -- after the first month, the quality rapidly fades. You'll be given good matches who live 2 hours away, or inappropriate matches nearby, etc.
There are a number of things you can do other than email, but I've not received a response on anything but emails, so they're a waste of time.
There is no searching capability. You'll get as many matches as they give you, which will start out being 5 a day, and drop to 2 within a month.
Save your money and time. OkCupid or PlentyOfFish are better.

One had 2 responses to my profile once we got past the "I'm interested" phase. Felt like men have more searching capabilities than women do.
Also, the men on here don't read profiles (or the ones I was matched with didn't) as I am not an active Christian with the church and I kept getting "interested in you" emails from guys who wanted a "good Christian woman).
Don't waste your money!
