Compatible Partners Review

By Top10BestDatingSites Staff


Compatible Partners for gay and lesbian singles was founded in 2009 by its parent website eharmony, as a niche version of the original. The site aims to help LGBT singles find the perfect match. Since then, hundreds of thousands of members have joined, and it boasts almost as much success as eharmony itself, with success stories all over the web. Using the same intuitive patented personality quiz, Compatible Partners can help you find your ideal person.

After some basic information about yourself, such as an email address and your age and location, the relationship questionnaire begins in earnest. This is not something to begin lightly, as the questionnaire involves over 400 questions which comprise elements of your personality, your interests, your passions and of course what you are looking for in a match. Make sure you set aside a large amount of time where you can really think about your answers and responses, because this section is what the premise of the website is based on. Hurrying through this area of the website negates the whole point. 

Some questions will be quick to answer, and are marked on a ranking system from "always" to "never" or "agree" to "disagree", while others involve you making multiple choice decisions or filling in some descriptive paragraphs about yourself. Many of the questions may feel personal, but the more honest you can be, the better Compatible Partners will be able to find you a suitable match.


Once you have filled in this section, Compatible Partners does the hard work for you. This is not a website like many other dating sites, where you can freely browse and view member profiles, and get in touch with whomever you like. Rather, the website uses your personality profiling to match you up daily with compatible members who want the same things you do. You will be emailed and messaged on the website with up to 5 matches a day, and you can choose to get in touch from there. SecureCall is an excellent addition which means you can phone on a secure line and see if there is chemistry between you. 

Meanwhile, make an effort to add to and complete your own profile, which is shown in beautiful design on the Compatible Partners website. Profile Advisor can give you advice on how to make it stand out from the crowd. Remember, this will only be shown to people you have been matched with.


Despite the website being much more private than most other internet dating websites, allowing for less shared information and possible security threats, it still publishes an in depth safety section.

This is comprised of a few sections, including what to watch out for online when talking to a stranger, how to recognize someone who may be trying to involve you in a scam, and how to safely share information, including withholding where necessary.

With the Total Connect package, you will be able to use RelyID, which verifies your legal identity without revealing your real name on the site. Look for a RelyID badge on other user profiles for the most security when getting in touch with a potential date. SecureCall is also offered with Total Connect, and is a completely private way to speak to one another without disclosing any personal data or phone numbers.


You can view your matches for free, but in order to communicate with them, you'll need to purchase a subscription. The Total Connect plan is the best value for your money and unlocks the complete functionality of Compatible Partners. This plan is $44.95 per month for a six month subscription, or $24.95 per month for a 12 month subscription. At the time of writing, a special offer enabling you to save 78% is available, making your monthly charge for a 12 month package a competitive $9.95 monthly. The basic plans available are slightly cheaper, with 6 months coming in at $42.95/month, and 12 months $22.95 per month.

3-month Membership$119.85$39.9533%
6-month Membership$179.70$29.9550%

6-Month Member$203.70$33.9524%

Bottom Line:

Compatible Partners is not for the casual dater. Like its partner site, eharmony, it attracts serious people looking for commitment, as shown by the price tag and the commitment of time it takes to sign up. If you are gay or lesbian and looking for love, it offers a great chance of being matched up with the right person.
