Why choose EliteSingles?

If you're thinking about trying online dating you'll no doubt be doing your research before picking a dating site. And you might be asking yourself why EliteSingles? Simply put, you should choose us because we know what it's like to want more from love. We understand that most UK singles just want to find someone compatible and caring. We also understand that not everyone has the time to search for such a match. That's why EliteSingles matchmaking is designed to help you find a match in two ways: one, we focus on compatibility and, two, we strive to streamline the searching process.

A dating agency that offers truly compatible connections

At EliteSingles we believe that finding a compatible partner - someone who genuinely suits your lifestyle and dating ambition - is vital for long-term happiness. That's why our intelligent matchmaking system is designed to combine location in the UK with individual search preferences and a personality profile (based on the Five Factor model of personality psychology): we want you to be confident that those you find on our site actually suit you in the long-term. 

A site which matches your expectations

When seeking a long-term partner it makes sense to be selective and EliteSingles works to help you meet the right singles for you. The majority of our members are interesting and educated singles between 30-55, who are looking for lasting love. We also automatically filter out inactive users, and proactively remove users we suspect of not being genuine, so our users spend their time doing what matters most: dating. With our site also fully optimized for mobile and tablet use, members can catch up with their matches, messages and more while on the go. 

1. Register and Create Profile

The first step is to simply complete your profile, providing information about yourself and adding a couple of profile pictures. This is a good opportunity to be a little creative – give a glimpse of the more interesting side of your personality and what makes you, you! You can update and change this information anytime.

2. Complete Personality Test

The next stage of the process is to fill out the extensive personality test. This consists of over 200 questions which effectively creates a comprehensive and accurate profile of you. The questions are based on the psychological Five Factor Model which calculates your levels of neuroticism, agreeableness, extraversion, conscientiousness, and openness.

3. Enter your Search Criteria

Following the personality test, you enter your relationship criteria which essentially asks you to outline what you desire in a partner – specifying your preferred age, your desire for children and the distance between you, to name a few. Our dating agency then uses intelligent matchmaking based on this information to bring together like-minded UK singles and help people find a true connection.

4. Receive Partner Proposals

Finally, once we have collated all this information, we will start sending you around 3-7 partner proposals a day. The matches are formed through our smart profiling system which takes in to account your personality test results, your relationship desires and your location in the UK.
