What is Isle of Wight dating like?

Living on the Isle of Wight is fantastic for lots of reasons, a slower pace of life is interjected by summer festivals, events as well as miles and miles of gorgeous coastline.

But, ask any Caulkhead, Islander or Overner and they’ll confess that living on the Island can often make it a struggle to meet new people. Many local singles live in a bubble of island life, seeing the same faces every day. Which isn’t just an Isle of Wight dating issue, it’s a UK dating issue. The hustle and bustle of daily life, work schedules and attempting to see family and friends means that for most, your love life is an afterthought.

Which is why so many people nowadays are turning to online dating to meet people. It’s an easier and more successful alternative than hoping to meet a like-minded partner at the pub out of the blue. So, if you would like to meet someone outside of your regular circle of friends, EliteSingles can help. But why should you choose EliteSingles over a local dating website or another UK dating website?

Why choose EliteSingles for Isle of Wight dating

EliteSingles was the choice of lots of successful couples for a few reasons, these reasons are what sets us apart from a generic local dating site or app.

EliteSingles isn’t an exclusive site, but our members tend to be educated and professional people with 87% holding at least a Bachelor’s degree. Our service is built around a rigorous personality test that all members take when they register. This test is based on the Five Factor Theory of personality traits and gives us an idea of your goals, values and needs in a relationship. This is also coupled with any specific criteria you have for a potential partner i.e. if you’re interested in senior dating or Christian dating only.

With the information we’ve been given we can then start matching you with compatible people. This is one of the most popular aspects of our service as our members tend to be people who have a difficult work/life balance. By suggesting 3-7 matches per day that are all suitable for you, you don’t have to waste time searching for profiles or going on lots of bad first dates! If you prefer dating on the go, then the EliteSingles app allows you to take your dating wherever you are on the Isle of Wight.

Finally, one of the reasons our members use our service for Isle of Wight local dating is because of our commitment to safety. Every user who signs up to EliteSingles is manually vetted by a member of our Customer Service team, ensuring that everyone you chat with is a real, local user. So you can focus on dating and finding love online!
