Elite Singles Review 2020
Is Elite Singles a reliable dating site?
EliteSingles is focused on serious dating. If you are looking for a long-term relationship there is no better place to try. Their dating pool is made of young professionals who have successful careers and want a partner who’s on the same level. Over 80% of its members hold a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctorate degree, and over 90% are over the age of 30. We highly recommend Elite Singles if you’re interested in a long term relationship with someone educated and career focused.
Memberships & pricing
You can register on EliteSingles for free. It’s a good way to understand how the website works before signing up for a paid membership. The following features are available for free:
- View your personality test results
- Receive partner suggestions
- Send smiles and likes
- Upload photos.
If you want to start contacting other members, you’ll need to sign up for a paid membership. You’ll then be able to send and receive an unlimited number of messages, leave comments on profiles and photos, receive up to 20 extra matches per day and your profile will be suggested to other Premium members more frequently. EliteSingles offers three subscription plans:
Signing up with EliteSingles is easy – you’ll need to register with your email address and upload a photo. The registration process is very easy to understand, however you’ll need to take the personality test to start as your profile will be activated upon completion of the test.
The personality test was created in close cooperation with psychologists and relationship experts. It’s based on the Five Factor Model theory of personality traits, established on the psychological model developed by McCrae and Costa (1992). The questions ask about your traits, character, personality, outlook, and habits. It takes approximately 25 minutes to complete, which can be a bit lengthy, however it’s important to do it seriously so the algorithm can match you with the right partner. This in-depth personality test really optimise the matchmaking process and members most compatible with your answers will be matched with you right away. Anyway, what’s 25 minutes when it’s about finding your life partner!
EliteSingles is genuinely a reputable and trustworthy online dating site. Though, a common problem for online dating sites is online scammers making fake profiles on sites which are otherwise reputable. In order to avoid this, EliteSingles manually check each individual profile to guarantee that everyone on the site is serious about the search for love.
The site also allows you to report profiles you may be worry about by email ([email protected]), so they’ll investigate and remove it from the site if necessary.
Moreover, you are free to block and/or delete profiles from within your search. If you block a profile, they will permanently stop showing up in your searches. Likewise, if you delete an account, they won’t be able to see you and you will never see them either. Both of these actions are reversible, so no drama if you accidentally block someone.
Elite Singles also ‘clean up’ their platform by deleting profiles that are inactive or do not reply to other members which means they have a very active user base.
Contacting Other Members
EliteSingles matchmaking algorithm calculates the percentage of compatibility of every member who signs up on their dating website. This means they will only put members who are a good match for you in your search results.
You’ll be able to see your compatibility score, and if you click through it, you’ll even be able to take a look at your match personality traits. It can be useful if you are looking for specific traits in a partner.
Moreover, you can filter your match recommendations according to age, height, location, desire to have kids, education, income, drinking habits, and many more.
You’ll only be able to send messages to other members as a premium user, and can receive responses notification by email, browser, or text messages. As a free user, you can show your interest to other members by sending a smile but you won’t be able to see their photos which kind of defeat the purpose. The free membership is really made to get a good feel of the website and see if you’d like to join as a premium member.
Customer Support at EliteSingles aims for a 48 hours response time. You can only contact them by email or phone. It seems that they rely heavily on the FAQ section of their site, which seem pretty complete to us.
The Bottom Line
Elite Singles is a reputable dating site recognised by the Online Dating Association in the UK. Their matchmaking algorithm is qualitative and does work, creating thousands of happy couples every month. It’s the right site for you if you really know what you want, are looking for a serious relationship and are not in a rush to find a partner. Indeed the site is targeting educated professionals in their 30’s which means you’ll find here less users than on a site less exhaustive like Be2.
An other thing to bear in mind is that EliteSingles works on a scientific matching model where other websites let you run free and search all of their members. But again, depending on your preference, EliteSingles is a great option if you don’t want to spend hours browsing profiles.
