Partner.de is well established German matchmaking site that aims to create lasting and meaningful relationships with their Balance matchmaking system. This is based on the fact that successful relationships occur when a couple has a mix of similar and opposite characteristics.
They are geared very much towards making long term matches. Once you join, you get access to their compatibility matching program that aims to help you find a match that you could have a lasting relationship with.
Compared to Meetic and Neu.de Partner.de is quite small even though they've been online for some time. The company has a good reputation for making lasting couples.
You can join for free, and set up your profile. You can even browse the profiles of other members without joining. But to contact other members, and use most of the other features of the site, you will need a paid membership. A basic 1 month's membership will set you back €34.90.
Partner.de offers the traditional features you'd expect on a dating site, including email, photo uploads, advanced searching, chat rooms, matchmaking tools, and cell phone access. There's no English version as yet and the site is delivered entirely in German.
