Test summary:

The Experience: What’s the Site Like?

The experience we had with was very good indeed! After all, it is one of the most well-known online dating agencies in Europe overall, the UK included (and boasting 1,800,000 members). Those who are on the lookout for singles who match in personality and taste, as well as serious partners, will have a great time chatting with the different types of people here!

Along with our great experience on EliteSingles, we also discovered that the contact proposals you receive are constantly updated and you almost always get at least one new match every day. The “What if…?” option where users can keep track of those they didn’t really "click" with in the beginning, is particularly fun. This way, you’ve got a large number of profiles to look at!

How Do You Login to EliteSingles?

Before being able to login, new users on EliteSingles have to go through an extensive analysis (not as scary as it sounds… it’s just a personality test/questionnaire!). This happens before you are able to start checking out other members and chatting with them! Although the extensive test that takes about 30 minutes to complete, it is well worth it! Having been developed in collaboration with several international universities, it’s got a lot of weight behind it.

You can also stop the test any time you want and continue at a later date. The whole test is focused on determining your personality and what sort of people you might get on with – in order find the best matches for you. There are almost 200 questions, but after finishing it you will be guided to the members’ area where you can take a look at the contact proposals that are presented to you.

You Can Try EliteSingles for Free

Online dating is still new to a lot of people and therefore EliteSingles offers singles the option to take a look at the website and try out the service. This helps people to overcome any scepticism they may have. As a result, before opting for a paid membership you can take advantage of the online offer! Contact proposals and checking out their profiles are all features that are completely free… so you can get a good idea of what the site is about before deciding to commit financially.

Prices on EliteSingles

Since this online dating agency is aimed at an educated audience, this is generally reflected the type of pricing that EliteSingles offers. A Premium membership is definitely not cheap, however, the value you get for your money is quite good. Consider that those who are seriously looking for a partner will generally pay adequatelyfor a good service… meaning that the singles you communicate with on EliteSingles are just as serious as you are and there is very little risk of getting ghosted or being messed with.

Given contact guarantee:

  • 6 month and 12 month subscriptions will be extended for the same period of time for free if you didn’t have at least 10 or 20 contacts respectively with other members.

Quality of user profiles:

  • Three text fields allow for people to go into greater detail about themselves.
  • Identity Verification: If you choose to install a verification badge on your profile, visitors will know that your name, age and place of residence are genuine and have been verified by the EliteSingles team. This improves your chances of contacts considerably.

Quality of the matching algorithm:

  • Due to the EliteSingles personality test being constructed based on psychological and scientific principles, it can hold a lot of weight when determining the personality of an individual. Furthermore, in working closely with psychologists, relationship researchers and universities, this personality test has aimed to provide the highest standard of results: for free!
