EliteSingles Review


Overview

EliteSingles is a dating site that is primarily for professional, working men and women who are typically well educated and, as a general rule, aged between 30 and 55. It is notable that over 65% of the members of EliteSingles are educated to Bachelors degree or higher.

The focus is on finding suitable matches for the members and making the whole online dating experience as much fun as possible in a totally safe environment. EliteSingles do this by making personality evaluations and using clever algorithms along with their 5-Factor Personality Questionnaire and Fraud Detection System. There are about 5 million members at present, all of them smart and ambitious people who maybe don’t have the time, with their busy schedules, to find partners by more conventional means.

Sign-up Process

The sign-up process is fairly straightforward with a basic questionnaire to fill in with details about your education, background, location, age. Etc. Then you will be asked to complete the personality test. This can be quite a lengthy process but is very much worth the effort as it will ensure that you receive the best possible matches. There are around 30 questions in the personality test which test your aptitude to solving certain problems, helping people and various other things. This test was composed by psychologists especially for EliteSingles and their particular clientele and gives much more of an insight into someone’s personality than more conventional dating sites.

Features

With EliteSingles being aimed at the more mature, better educated person, there is no complexity involved to find your perfect match. EliteSingles offers a straightforward and clean approach avoiding the complex features which you face on other sites. The criteria provided during the personality test is scrutinized and processed carefully and, covering 29 different personality features, and using their very sophisticate matching algorithms, EliteSingles are able to make extremely accurate matches between members. Using things like age, income, education and location, as well as personal traits, ensures that the best matches possible are made. If you have signed up as a free member to start with, you can still message other members, send them ‘winks’ and upload photos. It is, however, worth noting that there is no search option on the site and everything is done through communication and the personality questionnaire. EliteSingles will provide you with lots of tips and advice on such things as improving your visibility and attracting more matches. For example, they say that a profile that is properly filled in is able to attract eight times more contacts than one that doesn’t have much to it. EliteSingles also have their own online magazine which, again, is full of news, gossip, advice and plenty more interesting things to make the dating easier for you. Apart from all this, EliteSingles regularly host live singles events where you can actually meet potential matches face to face.

Daily Match Suggestions

You will receive suggestions for possible matches every day from EliteSingles. That you can get up to twenty matches per day, all of whom will fit your criteria. This will be based on the personality results from your original questionnaire. This can be updated by you at any time, by the way. Then you simply take a look through your potential matches and decide who you want to take things further with.

The Big 5 Personality Assessment

The Big 5 Personality Assessment is where your initial results from your personality questionnaire are measured against other member’s personality traits and then assessed. It is also possible for you to view and check the Big 5 Personality Assessment results of all your matches. You can judge yourself by identifying whether you’re in the same category as you think the expected match is in the same category. You might be a watchful person looking for a fancy-free person or vice versa.

 

Mobile App

EliteSingles have a mobile app for both iPhone and Android users. For iOS users it is downloadable from the Apple/iTunes store, and for Android users from the Google Play Store. This is a great app and very handy for dating on the move! It has all the features that the desktop version has but, in addition, you can obviously upload new photos straight from your device and you can also take all the personality tests as well.

Safety and Security

Safety, security and privacy are all top priorities for EliteSingles. It is absolutely paramount to them to ensure that your experience with them is of the highest quality and they want you to feel safe and secure in the knowledge that your personal information is treated with the greatest confidentiality. The EliteSingles site is protected by top drawer SSL encryption and anti-fraud security software. Your personal information is treated with the utmost respect and never released to anyone without your permission. You also have complete control over your profile and can choose who has access to it. It is within your power to block anyone that you don’t want to have access to you. All new member profiles are vetted and authenticated by the EliteSingles team and inactive profiles are removed so that only genuine, active and high-quality users are on the site.
