Dating can be a challenge and the sudden surge of dating services has made it even more challenging for some. A few of these stand out for their ease of use and good quality, however, and Elite Singles is among them.

If you’re wondering what is Elite Singles, how it works, and whether you should try it out, read the Elite Singles reviews we’ve put together in this article and see for yourself.

What Is Elite Singles and How Does It Work?

Elite Singles is an international online dating company that was first launched in 2013, its goal being to bring together educated, professional, and attractive single people. Although it might sound elitist at first, the number of monthly users (more than 2 million) reveals that Elite Singles is a welcoming place for people from all walks of life. However, more than 80% of the users have at least a bachelor’s degree, so for those looking to find someone of the same education level, either for a long-term relationship or a fling, this is the place to be.

For this Elite Singles review, we tested the service to find out how it works. Like all other dating services we’ve tested, the first thing you need to do at Elite Singles is set up a profile. But unlike some other services, you’ll need to provide answers to an extensive questionnaire, based on the Five-Factor Model of Personality theory. The site’s algorithm will use the answers to find quality matches for you, which should be enough to assure you that the people behind Elite Singles are taking their job seriously.

Elite Singles Key Features

Elite dating reviews point to the fact that the platform boasts some excellent features, so if you want to know what to expect before you sign up for the service, the section below highlights the most important and most interesting features offered by Elite Singles.

Match Recommendation

Something commonly found on dating sites is the ‘Matches’ section; you can find this at Elite Singles, too. In this section, you can find the matches the service has recommended for you based on the answers you’ve provided when filling out the questionnaire. Every day, you’re given a new batch of match recommendations, which should help you find a suitable partner sooner rather than later.

Advanced Search

While writing this Elite Singles review for UK audiences, we tested the search function. It allows you to set filters for the type of matches you’d like to be shown. The number of filters is extensive, so you can select matches based on their location, age, height, education level, income, smoking and drinking habits, etc. This is a very useful feature that helps you avoid any unwanted interactions.

Have You Met?

The ‘Have You Met’ feature will show you profiles that don’t necessarily meet your preferences, but the algorithm has suggested as a good match for you. This feature is designed in a swipe-like fashion; you are shown user profiles and you can click either an X or a smiley face. Reviews of Elite Singles confirm that you can message someone that catches your eye in the Have You Met section, without having to wait for them to match with you — quite useful, isn’t it? And if you match with someone, the platform will notify you and you can decide how to proceed.

Wildcard Matches

One of the Elite Singles Premium features is called ‘Wildcard Matches’, and as the name suggests, users receive new matches in addition to the daily match recommendations. Premium users can get up to 20 extra matches per day, which increases the dating pool significantly.

Favourites

If you really like someone you see at Elite Singles, you can visit their profile and add them to ‘Favourites’. For this Elite Singles UK review, we tried out this feature and found that you can add someone to your list of favourites by tapping the star icon that pops up on their profile. Don’t worry, you can remove them at any time, by simply tapping again on the star icon.

CitySwoon

Elite Singles has partnered up with CitySwoon — the speed dating service — to help its users meet more people and improve their dating success rate. During the coronavirus pandemic, these speed dating events were moved online, so Elite Singles members could still date from the comfort of their own homes. Currently, in the UK, these events are available to Londoners only.

Elite Singles Magazine

Elite Singles reviews by UK users have once again pointed us in the right direction — towards the Elite Singles magazine. This online magazine has a blog-like structure and it provides its readers with dating tips and insights into the world of online dating.

Ease of Use

Virtual dating is stressful enough as it is, and you don’t want the added stress of a complicated online dating service. So, it’s of utmost importance that you find a dating app or a platform that’s easy to use.

If you’re wondering ‘is Elite Singles any good when it comes to usability’, our answer is yes! Although the signup process is lengthier than on other platforms (more on that in a bit), the rest of the user experience is seamless. Elite Singles has an intuitive interface that makes it very easy for users to navigate the site and quickly find what they’re looking for.

The Elite Singles mobile app is available both on Android and iPhone. All the website features are available through the app as well, so whether you’re accessing the service through the site or the app, you won’t miss out on any aspect of the experience.

Joining Elite Singles

To review Elite Singles in detail, we created an account and completed the registration process, so we can tell you first-hand how the process goes. Below, you’ll find instructions on how to join the dating service, as well as screenshots of the most important steps of the process.

As soon as you enter the platform, you are invited to ‘get started’; you need to select your gender and choose your dating preference, i.e. whether you want to date men or women.

The next thing the platform asks you to do is to enter your email address, create a password, and accept the Terms & Conditions.

As soon as you complete these two initial steps, you’ll need to fill out the questionnaire Elite Singles is renowned for. It starts out by asking you to state your marital status, followed by several more or less general questions.

After you’ve answered the general questions, there are some abstract queries used to determine your personality type; for example, you’ll be shown four pictures and asked to choose one that you most associate with or one that you find most appealing.

The questionnaire is extensive and you’ll be asked about various things, including your ethnicity and religious beliefs, smoking and drinking habits, how satisfied you are with your appearance, as well as how important these things are in a prospective partner.

Before you complete the questionnaire, you’ll also need to provide a few written answers (short ones) and write a short description of yourself.

After you’ve answered everything, you’ll have to enter your name or choose a nickname if you’re uncomfortable with sharing your personal name. This is quite convenient — Elite Singles reviews unanimously agree on this.

You can upload a profile picture, or skip ahead and come back to this step at a later point. Then you’ll be asked for your banking details, and that sums up profile creation at Elite Singles.

Elite Singles Subscriptions and Pricing

There are three levels of Elite Singles subscriptions — Light, Classic, and Comfort. Keep in mind that if you decide to go for an Elite Singles paid membership, you can choose between 3-month, 6-month, and 12-month subscriptions. Let’s take a look at the prices and the features offered in each of the subscription plans!

The prices displayed on the picture are valid at the time of writing, but keep in mind that they may change and make sure you check the Elite Singles site for the current prices upon registration.

At this point, you’re probably wondering why we haven’t mentioned a free version of the service. Well, while the platform allows you to register and set up a profile for free, that’s about the extent of the services offered by Elite Singles. Some Elite Singles UK reviews list this as a negative aspect of the platform. Users can sign up for the 3-day free trial with a money-back guarantee. So, if you don’t like what you’re seeing at Elite Singles, you can always cancel your subscription and get your money back!

Customer Support

Companies like Elite Singles need to provide adequate customer support if they want their customers to continue using the service. So, we tested this aspect of the platform and found that the support offered at Elite Singles is more than adequate.

For this review of Elite Singles in the UK, we discovered that you can contact the support team via phone, email, or a Live Chat available 24/7. Not only is the chat support available at all times of day and night, but you’ll also (most likely) get a response within minutes. But that’s not the end of it — users can also submit a contact form that’s probably going to be reviewed in a couple of days. And let’s not forget about the FAQs section, which provides the answers to all the most common user queries.

To finish things off on a positive note — the support staff at Elite Singles is friendly and helpful, so don’t have any second thoughts about reaching out!

Alternatives

Reading through Elite Singles vs eHarmony comparisons, we realised that people are always in the pursuit of an alternative dating platform. So for the purposes of this article, we compared Elite Singles with three other excellent dating platforms: Match.com, eHarmony, and OkCupid.

Elite Singles Match.com eHarmony OkCupid
Win  Comprehensive personality questionnaire Numerous unique features Excellent success rate Compatible matches
Lose Short free trial Limited free version Expensive Presence of fake profiles
Best For Finding like-minded individuals Committed relationships Marriage and long-term relationships Inclusivity

After comparing Elite Singles to some of its most well-known competitors, we can conclude that Elite Singles should be the go-to choice for individuals who are looking for someone that shares the same values and wants the same things out of life.

Before we conclude this section, we have two more honourable mentions! For our readers interested in casual hookups, we’d recommend Zoosk, while for those that are looking for a platform where the age of its members is 50+, OurTime is a great choice.

Bottom Line

When putting together this Elite Singles review, our goal was to give an honest overview of all the aspects of the platform, so you can decide whether this is the right place for you. Hopefully, after reading through the review, you’ve come to the realisation that Elite Singles is a well-developed platform whose purpose is to help people find a partner with a similar lifestyle. In any case, it’s best if you try it out and see for yourself!
