To show you why we think TrueLifePartner deserves the praise it gets, we review the site and look at its members, the user-friendliness of the website and its unique registration process, as well as its prices.

Our Summary

When we initially signed up for TrueLifePartner, we were quite impressed with the amount of detail and depth that they provided for their registration process and the specificity of the questions that it asked the users. The matching system definitely stands out here.

If you compare the typical registration process that other sites ask you to go through when you begin your online dating experiences, it is clear that TrueLifePartner sets itself ahead of the pack in a clear and strong way. This left us feeling confident in what the results to come.

Additionally, knowing that the matches we would get were better tailored to our own interests, this improved our odds immensely in finding a suitable partner. Coupled with the strong security features that the site provides and its user-friendly interface, this was a good overall experience to have.

The only real downside to TrueLifePartner that stands out is the lack of usability for free members. If you enjoy the site, you will have to upgrade to really get the most out of it. Even sending messages isn’t possible without a premium account.

Still, the costs are reasonable enough for the service that TrueLifePartner provides, and its percentage of success stories goes to show that there’s a lot that you get for your money here. Overall, we felt like this was a reasonable and more than worthwhile site to try.

✍️ Registration process and profile creation

Time needed: 6 minutes.

Registering for TrueLifePartner’s dating website is a breeze, but you will be asked to answer a few questions to help find you a match when you do. The process is takes about five minutes and is easy to do, and you can finish your profile later time if you would like.

  1. Signing up

    You will first be asked if you are a man or a woman. The site will auto select the opposite sex, but you can manually switch this if you would prefer. You will then need to provide a valid email address and a password you want for the site.

  2. Providing details about yourself

    You will now be taken to a page with multiple choice questions. The first page is about the type of relationship that you are looking to have. The second is about the characteristics and decision-making of what your future partner would ideally have.
    The third page will ask you to choose words which describe you. These are done on a scale to rate how you are relative to these values, such as your seriousness. The next page asks for some either or questions, and how you heard about the site.
    Your answers will go straight into the site’s scientific matchmaking process and aren’t shown to anyone.

  3. Building your profile

    This is still a part of the questionnaire but will go into building your account. You will need to describe your physicality, education, job, location, beliefs and habits. Include the month and year you were born as well!

  4. Write about yourself

    You will be given a text box to write about yourself at the bottom of this page. You are only given 200 characters, so you will have to keep this message relatively brief. Try to think of something that says who you are and what you are looking for.
    Before you move on to the next page, you will also see a checkbox already selected stating that you would like to use TrueLifePartner’s free personal messaging service.
    The free personal messaging service sends messages to people that you match with as you match with them. These messages are you about your activity on the site. If you do not want to use this service make sure you deselect it.
    Agree to the terms and conditions and privacy regulations to move on.

  5. Upload your photo

    You will now be given the option of uploading your photo. You can skip this for now if you would like, but a photo will help you get more matches and is generally recommended.
    Pictures containing explicit sexual content, violence, contact data, children, comics, celebrities, animals or just landscapes will not be accepted. Up to 10Mb jpg or png are possible.
    You are now registered and can use the site to start dating!
