ELITE SINGLES

Elite Singles caters to the elitist in all of us. 80% of their members have a university degree, so the types of people you will meet through Elite Singles will most likely be different than another personality based dating service reviewed on this list, but you will also pay more for the pleasure of rubbing elbows with the "Elite".

Getting started with Elite Singles is easy, but a little time consuming since you need to answer the personality questionnaire. No purchase is necessary to complete this step and you will receive your personality test results regardless if you choose to purchase a subscription or not. With a free membership, you will also be able to receive partner suggestions, send smiles and likes to other members and upload photos, but you will not be able to see clear photos of those you are matched with until you upgrade. You will only see a blurry picture, which is very disappointing.

If you choose to purchase a subscription you will then have access to unlimited communication with other members and have access to the intelligent matchmaking service. Upgrading your subscription to the Premium Classic subscription allows you to see all member photos, all visitors to your profile and receive read receipts when communicating with other members of the site.

There are some drawbacks to EliteSingles. The first is that you will not be able to search the broad membership base directly. You will only be introduced to potential matches based on the site's matching algorithm using the 5 factors of compatibility obtained from your personality test. This can be a good thing because it frees up your time to focus on building great relationships, rather than hunting through the online database. Another drawback is the large number of complaints on fake profiles. These complaints go with the territory of online dating, but there did seem to be more than usual for this site. The final concern is the price. It is one of the more expensive options on this list.

While the idea is strong and there are several fans of the dating service Elite Singles provides, we rated this one in the middle because of the cost and the number of negative reviews.

Best Online Dating Sites

To help you find the Best Online Dating Services, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth Elite Singles Review.

What's the best Online Dating Site? The dating scene has certainly changed over the past several years. More and more people are trying online dating. In fact, a recent survey from the Knot found that 19% of brides surveyed had met and started their relationship with their spouse online, that's 1 out of every 5 couples getting married met each other through the use of an online dating site.

While some of the first online dating sites were introduced over 20 years ago, today the number of online dating services is extensive. For many, the sheer number of possibilities can be a challenge to figure out which one will work best for them. The good news is that there is no right answer for everyone - the type of relationship you want and the features of the dating sites will likely drive you to a specific service.

There are a number of factors you should consider before choosing an Online Dating Service. Some of these include:

  • Relationship. Are you interested in a long-term relationship, a casual affair or do you just want to find a new friend?
  • Control. Do you want to have complete control over the matches you are presented with and do the searching yourself? Or do you want to let science and math take over and find matches for you?
  • Features. What features appeal most to you? Instant messaging, emails, blogs, video posts, lots of profile pictures, personality matching or social network matching?
  • Membership. Does the size of the membership for the site matter to you? Do you want work with a site that has lots of members or fewer members?
  • Cost. How much are you willing to pay? How fast do you want to find your special match and are you willing to pay more to speed up the search?
  • Support. Does customer service matter to you?

Online Dating Tips

Meeting potential candidates at a dating website is far more effective and convenient than scouring the bars and night clubs week after week. Meeting singles online has many benefits including the amount of singles to choose from, the ability to learn important details about a person before you even talk, and the opportunity to preserve your privacy. Your approach with dating websites will be far more effective if you follow these tips:

  • Profile. Writing a quality profile is an important element to attracting your next date. Does your profile tell a story, is it detailed but not too long? Are you positive in your approach or are you focusing on negatives of what you don't want? Keep in mind you need to sound open and not overly picky. Once you have written your profile, wait a day, and go back and review for accuracy.
  • Picture. While joining a dating site can be a little uncomfortable at first you will get used to the idea of others perusing your picture is this environment. If you fail to post a picture you will most likely meet very few singles. Make sure any picture you post of yourself is relatively accurate and up-to-date. Many online daters have been shocked to meet someone in person and find they look nothing like their pictures posted. Also avoid posting pictures of yourself with someone who looks to be an ex spouse. Even if it's a sister or brother, it will bring many questions and set some false expectations on who is the right physical match for you.
  • Response. If you receive communication from a quality individual don't hesitate to respond. Pretending to be too busy or too passe to respond timely doesn't send the right message. Most people that pay the cost to join a dating site are hoping to expedite the process of meeting people. If you wait too you may miss your chance to get to know a great person.
  • Privacy. Once you've met someone online it's important to not jump the gun and give out personal information. If someone has your last name, email address or phone number it takes only a few seconds to find out where you live and sometimes where you work. Utilizing the privacy established through the dating website is a smart idea until you've met someone special, in person, and have a stronger understanding of who they are and if you want to spend more time with them.

A well written, honest profile that is upbeat is a great way to capture the attention of potential candidates that would make a good fit. Sign on regularly to look for communication from potential dates but make sure you aren't too quick to share personal information with those you meet online.
