The Big 5 model of personality is used to create the in-depth personality quiz you complete when you sign up to EliteSingles. This involves more than just answering basic factual questions such as your age, hobbies or location. You’ll be asked questions about your emotional behavior, your background in relationships as well as what your friends think of you. All of this helps to ensure your matches are better suited to you. You can add more information and fill out your profile once you’re done with the test. Here’s a chance to show your personality and sense of humor, and give a proper first impression to other matches.

While you expect there to be a slightly higher price tag on a more elite dating service with a matchmaking element, if you choose to sign up for a longer term this can really limit the expense. We like the 6 month deal, which is a short enough term to see if the site works for you, but still reasonably priced at under $20 per month. We’d also love to see a free trial or some opportunities for free communication between members before you sign up.
You tend to get a lot more genuine profiles here than on other dating sites, for a number of reasons. Firstly, the profiles are manually verified which means that scammers or less serious singles are removed before they set foot on the home page. The lengthy questionnaire also scares off singles with less serious intentions. If you do need help, there is a strong FAQ section on the site, and direct email addresses given which you can use to get in touch.
EliteSingles has a great reputation for matching singles, with a match made every 8 minutes. The questionnaire is bullet-proof and aimed at compatibility between professional singles, over 80% of which are university graduates. The app isn’t best for those looking for something more casual or ‘no strings’. I’d also like to see some better real-time communication tools such as audio or video chat in a future update.
EliteSingles is owned by Affinitas, one of the leaders in online dating and matchmaking. They boast over 40 million users globally, with 2,500 new couples on EliteSingles every month, about one every 8 minutes!
