Overview

EliteSingles is focused on serious dating. If you are looking for a long term relationship there is no better place to try. Their user base, although smaller than others, is fresh and active and full of like-minded professional people looking to find that special someone with thousands finding love every month. EliteSingles operates in 20 countries and has been creating around 2000 new couples monthly.

Registration Process - Top 5 Dating Sites Reviews

Registration Process

Unlike other online dating sites, EliteSingles.co.uk is presented in a more discrete way. You are unable to browse profiles without going through the registration process – which generally leads to a far higher caliber of singles. The first step of the registration contains questions which refer to gender and sexual orientation. The second step is longer and contains a personality test with questions referring to your personality, to the way your friends describe you, your priorities in life and your expectations from a potential partner. EliteSingles really try to keep their userbase active and authentic, so please note, the basic free plan only allows you to view profiles and you are not able to send any messages, smiles or other interaction. Again, the result of this is a far more serious user base, all with the one shared goal of finding that special someone.

Registration Price Options - Top 5 Dating Sites Reviews

Registration Price Options

EliteSingles has two membership plans – Basic and Premium. The Basic plan is free, and includes the initial personality test and receiving matching suggestions. You are able to contact other members only after subscribing for a Premium account. We highly recommend you take a 3, 6 or 12 month plan, which works out to £49.95 per month (3-month plan), £37.95 per month (6-month plan), and £27.95 per month (12-month plan) respectively. If you want to pay for only one month, you will pay £99.95.
Both plans enable you to view other members’ photos and communicate with them via smiles, likes and comments. They also enable you to check your profile’s statistics. Premium members can have their profile verified as an extra sign of security to download profiles as PDF and get confirmations for the messages they send to other members on the site.

Special Features - Top 5 Dating Sites Reviews

Special Features

EliteSingles bases its matchmaking process on personality traits analysis, based on two factors: your profile, which is created after you finish the personality test, and your search preferences. Focusing on serious relationships seekers, this online dating site asks new members to fill in a detailed questionnaire. The data obtained from the member’s answers enable EliteSingles to draft a personality profile, which later on is completed and refined by the member’s activity on the site.

Conclusion - Top 5 Dating Sites Reviews

Conclusion

With their professional and algorithmic matchmaking service, EliteSingles goes beyond superficial differences to deliver you high quality potential partner recommendations. Their algorithm takes into considerations a great amount of factors that can act as deal breakers at any stage of the relationship making sure you have the highest chance of finding that happy and long term relationship. EliteSingles goes beyond the ethnicity and religious beliefs in their level of questioning, investigating more refined issues like the importance of age difference, lifestyle and future goals. We highly recommend EliteSingles if you are serious about finding that special someone.

    I have been on Elite singles since December. I am looking for a serious relationship, However I have noted that I keep getting offered people who are not within my area and aren’t apart of my specification. Still haven’t found anyone yet unfortunately.

    It would be really helpful to know how many UK members these different sites have. I realise that’s a moveable feast but even an indication of xx thousands as at date and approx x new members a month would be helpful. I’ve used the premium sites before when they first got started and the global reach figures mislead on how many UK members. thank you

    What if the site doesn’t work for me how do I get a refund, is there opt out option.

      Hi Nicholas,

      You can sign up, create a profile, and receive matches with the Basic Plan, which is completely free. I’d recommend you start with that, so you can find out firsthand whether you’re likely to be matched with the type of people who interest you.

      However, if you want to actually message and interact with other members you’ll need to sign up for one of the premium plans. Since you can’t get a refund once you’ve started using the site’s services (like sending a message), I’d advise going for the 3-month plan. That gives you enough time to see if the site works for you (after all, finding a serious partner doesn’t happen overnight), without too much commitment.

      You can sign up for the free plan here.

      I hope that helps. Good luck!

      Hi Brenda,

      The best way to find out if EliteSingles is for you – and whether there enough members in your area – is to sign up for a free basic membership. You can create a profile and search for matches by proximity before deciding whether EliteSingles is the right choice.
      We think it’s a great dating site if you’re looking for a serious relationship. But that depends on how many potential matches there are within a reasonable distance from where you live, of course.

      Good luck!

        Your article is very misleading. I assume you are on their payroll. I have never encountered a company who care less about their customers than Affinitas, the German company that run Elite singles. They took £150 to renew membership I did not want as the website is rubbish and I am still chasing them to try and get my money back, They just keep saying I am not entitled to a refund and do not care that I have cancelled my profile and am not using the site. I actually stopped using the site within a few days when it became obvious they had hardly anyone in my area – I live in a tiny little town called London with only about 8 million people!!!!
        As for Algorithmic matching – has been scientifically proven to be utter bullsh*t. No computer program can tell if 2 people will like each other. There are much cheaper dating sites out there. Do not be fooled people. This site is for them to make money not for you to find love.

          Hi,
          Thanks for sharing your experience.
          Although I understand your frustration at not finding a good match, during the review process I found that EliteSingles lived up well to its promise, with plenty of activity in the Greater London area.
          Of course, given that we only spend a short time reviewing a site, we don’t always have the opportunity to fully familiarize ourselves with every aspect of a typical user’s experience, including long-term billing issues.
          It sounds like you didn’t cancel your plan when you decided to stop using the site and so your subscription automatically renewed. This certainly isn’t unique to EliteSingles, or even to online dating sites. Regardless, we’ve brought your comments to the attention of the EliteSingles team and we await a reply.

    I’ve been a member of other dating sites and they were full guys only looking to mess about. Is Elite focused on serious dating and will they be able to actually find me a date that has potential of going somewhere?

      Hi Penny,
      There are a lot of dating sites out there, some more serious than others. Elite is known for their track record of finding suitable matches and creating long term relationships. They are definitely focused on serious dating and you should find a large amount of guys looking for more than a quick fling.
      Let us know how you get on!

    Hi. Could you give me an idea of the age group that this site caters for.

    Reply
    • Emma Walters

      Hi Sue,
      EliteSingles caters for all ages – and even have a seniors section.
      However they do have the most success matching those aged 30+

    Elite is number 1!

    I joined Elite and really liked the look and feel of the site. Unfortunately there isnt much you can do on a free account so I took a subscription.
    Am really happy I did it. There seems to be a good amount of men looking for single ladies, and its all quite easy to use.

    Have a couple of dates lined up, i’ll let you know how they go!

    A paid Account is Much Better

    I didn’t want to pay at first, but being on an online dating site without being able to connect with other members and respond to messages isn’t worth much. The premium membership is much better and flexible, connecting wise.

    I had no idea this dating site existed!! It’s actually pretty great and intimate. Less members than on other dating sites. I prefer it this way.
