7. How can I start communicating with the compatible member I liked?
In the list of your compatible members click on the one you liked. After carefully reading his/her profile you can start communication in two ways: using the ‘Communication guide’ or by writing him/her a letter without the help of guided communication.
The ‘Communication guide’ helps you in the process of communication and allows you to know the person better before start exchanging letters with him/her. It consists of three stages:
1. You choose several questions you like from the long list and send them to the member you are interested in. He/her reads them and sends you back his/her answers. He/she can also add some questions for you.
2. You send your answers and feature descriptions you expect your partner to have and also features you would prefer him/her not to have. That member reads them and gives you the list of his/her features.
3. You send some open questions which the member of your list answers and also sends some open questions to you.
After the third stage you can freely exchange letters. The main advantage of this ‘Communication guide’ is that in every stage you have a possibility to find out if the candidate meets your expectations. If in the process you exchange information you understand that serious relationship is hardly possible, you can choose to close communication at every stage.
If you find this way of getting acquainted rather lengthy or simply not acceptable you can at any time choose the option ‘Write the first letter’ which is on the left side of the profile. As soon as you do this you can send your first letter to the member you are interested in.
8. How to update my profile information?
If you want to upload your profile you should firstly log into your PairIQ.com account. From the menu on the left choose the option ‘My profile’ -> ‘My Details’. Then, there will appear a form where you can edit your profile information. In the same form there will be a field where you have to repeat your registration password. After doing this click ’Update’. Compatible members that were on your list before you made changes to your profile will remain, but new compatible members will be selected according the renewed information of your profile.
9. What is couple compatibility?
Couple compatibility is a combination of the best features a man and a woman own and which helps them to communicate and collaborate. Therefore, the compatibility of a couple depends on lots of factors.
In a harmonious couple a man and a woman complement each other in the fields of temperament, activeness and sexuality. They also have similar aims of life, match in their attitude towards family, educating and taking care of children . However, couple compatibility doesn’t occur by itself. Some achieve compatibility quite easy while others find it rather difficult.
When analysing and consulting successfully and unsuccessfully married couples our specialists have identified the major presumptions of a harmonious relationship. And so, on the basis of these results the PairIQ.com evaluation system of compatibility was created.
10. What does the compatibility percentage show?
The percentage of couple compatibility shows how much you are compatible in a certain field of features with a member who was selected for you. If the compatibility percentage is over 50% you may expect good relationships. And if the percentage is over 70% you can expect an easy and really fluent communication.
However, possibilities don’t always become a reality. To achieve that, you will both have to put lots of efforts. Compatibility is an important factor, when trying to create a long-term relationship, but it may happen, that even the best choice based on compatibility evaluation won’t guarantee you success. For example, you can both share deep compatibility levels, but it is very difficult to predict how your relationships with his/her relatives or children will develop. Even more, it is also very difficult to foreseen how your professional interests may affect your relationships.
11. Does the compatibility system evaluates only similarities or also takes into account the attraction of opposites?
PairIQ.com takes into account both the similarities and the attraction of opposites, because for a successful relationship it is not enough to be only compatible in the most important fields of life. Two people must complement each other and this means that one of the couple should have something more or something less as a personality to complement his/her partner or to be complemented himself/herself. All these factors are evaluated and only then the compatibility percentage is set.
12. I have received a message about the compatible match , but the last time he/she logged into his account was five months ago. Would there be any point in writing him/her?
We wouldn’t recommend you to draw conclusions about the seriousness of member intentions from the date he/she last time logged into his account. People are very different and not all of them get long lists of compatible members. For example, if a man gets only a few offers and if he is not successful to start communication with them it is really possible that such a member won’t log into his account for a period of time. However, if you write him he will be send a message to his email and he will most probably log into his account to read your letter. So we would recommend you to take every possibility to start communication.
Sometimes you just need little patience and faith and time will solve everything. Few days ago a couple came to us who met each other through PairIQ.com. They came to thank us for helping them to find each other and also to share their happiness as they are getting married in less than a month. When our psychologist asked them to tell their acquaintance story the man told that he was a member of PairIQ.com for a long time. At first, he was offered a few woman candidates, but their communication never grew into serious relationships. So he didn’t log into his account for several months and even forgot about this site until he got a message to his email about a new compatible woman on his list. The letter determined his fate. It determined the beginning of their story and also their present common life.
So things are not always as they look from the first sight. Your happiness mostly depends on your own efforts and faith.
We would also recommend you to use the possibility of reminding the member about your message. If a member doesn’t answer your letter in 7 days, in the list of compatible members there will appears the option ‘Send a reminder’ . Choosing this option you will show that member that you are really interested in him/her and will help him/her to deal with his/her fear to be rejected.
13. I was notified about a new compatible member on my list but when I log into my account I can’t see him/her on my list. Where is the problem?
First of all, check if that member didn’t end acquaintance with you. You can do this by choosing the option ‘My Matches’ -> ‘Closed’ from the menu on the left. If after clicking it you found that particular member on the list it means that he has decided to end the communication with you. If he is not on the list it is possible that he has removed his PairIQ.com profile. Don’t worry it is really not your fault. Maybe that person is in a situation which is not favorable for searching his/her soul mate. It is also happens that a person is leaving home for a longer period of time and decides to reject possible matches and not to mislead them knowing that he/she won’t be able to answer their letters. In such situation just try to start communication with other compatible members on your list and we are sure you will find that only one. You only need some patience and you will succeed.
14. How to close the communication with the member I don’t like?
At the bottom of every profile there is a link ‘Want to close this match?’. After clicking on it you will be transferred to the page where you can choose to end that communication and that member will be removed from your list of compatible members.
15. How could I see all the members of PairIQ.com?
After logging to your PairIQ.com account, choose ‘Members Search’ from menu on the left. Then fill in the criteria in the search form and you will see other members. However, have in mind that some members prefer not to be listed in Member Search results, so you won’t see their profiles.
16. Is it possible that one and the same person has two accounts with different names?
We put a lot of efforts that there wouldn’t be such cases as they are against PairIQ.com rules. So if you notice that one and the same person has more than one profile notify us via email firstname.lastname@example.org . We are very thankful for your help and understanding.
17. I have sent questions to one compatible member using the ‘Communication guide’ but he is not answering for a week now ,even though I see that he logs into his account almost every day. Why is that?
Unfortunately, it sometimes happens that even compatible members choose not to answer to your letters. We really try to increase the number of members who answer and always send notifications about your sent letters, but the human factor always remains and it is not in our power to affect it. On the other hand, try to look at your profile critically and to think how you could edit it in order to be more interesting for your possible matches. After all, neither you or other members of PairIQ.com are committed to continue acquaintance or to create a family. Any acquaintance is always risky. The compatible member may not like you and you may not like him/her, but it is really possible to raise interest of the possible candidates.
Look through the self-description and description of your match texts you yourself wrote and make sure that it is enough thorough and really reflects your requirements.
Moreover, we have found out that people who add photos to their profiles receive response from compatible members 70% more often than people who do not add their photos. You still didn’t add your photo? Then, why don’t you try to do this?
