It looks like on May 3rd 2017 Chemistry.com was completely redesigned and switched over to a new version of the service. This redesign not only affect the look of Chemistry but the features as well.
Chemistry which is part of the Match Group of online dating services was originally designed as a personality matchmaking service similar to eHarmony. With the original version of Chemistry you could not search through all members of the service using your own search parameters, you could only search through and communicate with the matches Chemistry assigns to you based on their matchmaking algorithm. The matchmaking algorithm used was very complex and designed in part by the relationship expert Dr. Helen Fisher.
Unfortunately Chemistry.com had seen it's popularity wan over the past few years which is why we assume they decided to do a complete service overhaul.
The new version of the online dating service Chemistry.com appears now to be run by People Media (which is owned by Match Group).
At the bottom of the Chemistry homepage it now states:
Chemistry.com is part of People Media's MarriageMinded Community, which includes MarriageMindedPeopleMeet.com . As a member of Chemistry, your profile will automatically be shown throughout the MarriageMinded Community at no additional charge.
The new version of Chemistry appears to have scrapped their old matchmaking algorithm. Chemistry members can also now not only be matched with members but now can search for any members themselves to communicate wtih.
We assume the old members of Chemistry.com where moved to the new version along with all profiles, photos, and messages. If you where a member of Chemistry before May of 2017 and can confirm this please comment on this article below.
As of the writing of this post our Chemistry review last received a major update in August of 2014. It's unclear yet if we will update our old review to reflect the new version of Chemistry.com.
