EliteSingles is a dating site aimed at the affluent, educated elite singles of the UK who are looking for like-minded people to share their lives with in a serious relationship. Signing up is free but you need to complete a lengthy questionnaire which was made to examine all aspects of your personality and what you see as important in a relationship in order to find perfect matches for you. You receive up to 7 compatible matches every day based on the results of the quiz and your criteria given (e.g. how important is religion to you?).
Your mind can rest at ease knowing that your information is safe and secure on EliteSingles. Security is the top priority and they manually go through every profile before it goes online to ensure authenticity. They also filter out inactive members regularly to avoid wasting time sending messages to members who haven’t been logged on for years and probably won’t login any time soon. They use SSL encryption and Fraud Detection Systems to ensure maximum safety with your personal information.
The interface and support
The colour scheme of black, gold and grey gives the site a very classy look. The pages are clear, modern and tidy and it is easy to navigate around the site. There are no advertisements crowding the site and there are many icons and graphics which keep the page exciting. On profile pages, you can immediately find the basic information such as location, height, smoking habits, ethnicity, religion and desire to have children. These are important aspects to consider as people on EliteSingles are searching for serious relationships. You can see recent activity, a bit like a Facebook feed, and “Like” or comment.
EliteSingles has a huge customer support team on-hand to help you in the unlikely event of you encountering any problems using the site. There’s an FAQ section on the Knowledgebase, which is a branch of Affinitas. There is a large number of frequently asked questions accompanied by detailed explanations and images to help you fully understand the processes. You can also directly ask questions by filling in a form and awaiting a reply via email, sending a message by fax or by writing a letter. A comprehensive dating guide and online magazine are available with many tips and expert advice from well-known psychologists as well as the latest scientific research in relationships.
A mobile app is also now available for dating on-the-go.
