How does chemistry work in online dating?

Take the internet out of the equation and the question of chemistry versus compatibility is almost as old as that fiery thing in the sky.

Even Blaise Pascal, a 17th century philosopher, asked this question and sadly reached no practical answer, though he describes the confrontation between the heart and reason…

“There’s no real logic to chemistry but when you have it with someone, you just feel it.”


But let’s get back to dating! How can we understand the relationship between chemistry and compatibility when we’re meeting people through online dating? Maybe something about their profile just attracts you in a way you can’t explain?

We’ve come across plenty of successful couples who met online who’ll tell you that in this sense it wasn’t all that different to meeting in person. They felt a vibe. They just ‘got’ each other straight away. Because chemistry is all about the tiny things, those decisions we make, based on minimal information, without even thinking about it.

But this should not be a reason to write someone off if you don’t feel the chemistry right away. After all, you haven’t met them yet.

“It’s all too easy to write someone off because their ideals don’t match our own”
