Dating Scotland: start looking in the right place

For a country small in size, Scotland more than compensates with its vast natural beauty, distinct culture and world-leading gastronomy. But what most defines Scotland is its people. And if you’re looking for a Scottish dating site that helps you find the best of them, look no further.

Dating in Scotland: what's going on?

The clichéd image of Scottish life might look rosy; enjoying the outdoors, dancing up a storm at ceilidhs and topping it all off with a dram or two of local whisky. Yet it’s not all so easy-going here, especially for Scottish singles. The vast majority of Scottish singles are industrious folk; juggling busy work-life balances with a desire to find someone special is no mean feat.

Faced with this Catch 22, a growing number of Scots are still looking for the partner that wants to get the most from life too. Many professional singles often struggle to escape the bustle of everyday city life in Aberdeen, Glasgow or Edinburgh. It’s no wonder that finding the perfect partner is a common difficulty. But that's where a leading local dating site like EliteSingles comes into its element.

Meet Scottish Singles, locally

One of the main reason's EliteSingles has become a leading UK dating site is because of our intelligent matchmaking system. Our schtick rests on the accuracy we're able to ensure when matching you with prospective partners. And here's how it works. Upon registration, we require every new member to take an in-depth personality test. Based on the famous Five Factor model, our questions tease out the intricacies of your personality, and help us get an understanding of what you're looking for in a partner. We're then able to match you with people you'll hit it off with. If you're interested, there's more information on our unique approach to matchmaking below. Falling in love with EliteSingles is as simple as that!

Dating in Scotland with us

There might be plenty of fish in the sea, but as any Scot knows it’s about finding the finest possible. The secret, of course, is looking in the right place. EliteSingles members aren’t looking for flings or casual love affairs with no long-term prospects. With the majority aged 30-55 and educated, our users are serious about finding a lasting relationship with a like-minded partner. We know that our members lead busy lifestyles, which is why we've developed one of the best UK dating apps to make dating on-the-go effortless!

Compatibility matters

We think that people whose personalities work well together have the best chances of a long, happy relationship. Real compatibility isn’t just about matching people’s interests, but making sure their lifestyles, ambitions and personalities are well-suited. A shared love for the outdoors, for instance, probably won’t suffice to get a couple through the rockier moments. At EliteSingles we help introduce our members to those whose personalities really suit, as well as taking account of each person’s own search criteria.

Our Matchmaking

To help our members find the person right for them, we use a  that works when you register. We use a 240-question personality test which places your “Big Five” personality traits on a scale and that we use to focus your search onto those with whom you’ll have chemistry. Naturally, we also ask members to define their personal preferences on things such as age, location, smoking and drinking habits, and so on. This profile allows us to introduce you to singles with whom you’ll likely to get on best with, meaning your first date is likely to be a better one.
