Online dating is hard enough as it is. That’s why I’m going to help you out by providing some in-depth reviews of the most popular dating sites out there. And today I’ll be doing a comprehensive review of Elite Singles. Or if you are looking for the most simplified version of everything, you can click here for my top dating site recommendations.
Elite Singles is a platform for successful single professionals to meet up with other successful single professionals. The website claims to have a high success rate, an intelligent matching system, and a high caliber of users.
Payment Structure: Between $30 – 80 per month
You can sign up for a “free” account. However, without upgrading, you won’t be able to see other members’ photos. In the unpaid version, Elite singles blurs out all of the photos, like naked sims. Because of this, the free version is basically unusable.
Additionally, many people have also submitted a negative review of Elite Singles. People have also reported that the site has taken advantage of them financially. Elite Singles has been known to automatically renew against peoples’ will, act a bit forceful when it comes to payments, etc.
Ease of Setting up an Account: Hard
In order to setup your account, you must fill out pages upon pages of detailed questions about you and your preferences. Yes, this can technically be seen as a good thing. This is all a part of Elite Singles’ intelligent matchmaking process.
However, the downside is that you also MUST fill out this information. You have to fill out everything before even gaining access to the online portal. Because of this, there is a very high chance that you (and other potential matches for that matter) will be filling out these hundreds of questions in a rush, thus negatively affecting the chance of actually having accurate information on file. It is even mandatory that you answer a few profile questions during this process, which can be a bit stressful considering you haven’t even had a chance to check out the site yet.
Usability: Medium – Easy
The structure of the site is a bit messy, and the overall vibe is a bit forced and impersonal. However, the site does function rather well, making it pretty easy to navigate.
Quality of Profiles: Medium
The profile content is at a pretty average value. It doesn’t seem as though the users have put much time into their profiles (when compared with profiles from other online dating websites). That being said, the content is also better than a few of the other dating sites out there. I would say the overall quality is very lackluster.
Number of Members: Low
In comparison to other dating sites, the actual number of users (especially paying users) won’t keep you too busy when it comes to having numerous interactions with different people. The website also has its own filtering process, which actually selects the matches that are right for you. This makes it a bit harder for you to connect with a wide variety of matches.
A Few Pros:
Good news! The site offers a very high level of privacy. Since other users will only be able to see your page if you are a potential match, you won’t have to worry about a large amount of strangers seeing your profile.
Elite Singles claims that over 80% of their users have a university degree.
There are actually many great people who use Elite Singles! The only problem is figuring out how to ever find them.
The gods of Elite Singles actually control the amount of matches that you actually see. And, although they may be able to match you based on your personality, there is just no way they can filter out the types of people you are actually attracted to.
Overall Rating (1 – 10): 3.5
It’s a good concept. However, the site is lacking in actual results. The site as a whole is nothing too spectacular. You will likely leave with more frustration towards the dating process than you started out with.
