Ease of Use

Registration process

Once you create your basic profile with your username, email, and password, set aside a solid 30 minutes as Elite Singles has a questionnaire for you measuring 29 personality traits to find your best match. Don’t worry, it gives you the opportunity halfway through the questionnaire to skip and come back to it later.

Profile set-up

Prepare to bare your soul with a very detailed profile. Your personality quiz results are displayed on your profile, along with sections you’ll fill in to answer questions about what you’re looking for in a relationship, quirky interests, and lifestyle highlights.

Notification settings

Go into the ‘account settings’ tab where you can choose which notifications you’d like to receive, from newsletters to push notifications when you receive a new message or match.

Approved photos

Your photos must meet EliteSingle’s photo criteria with guidelines such as no nudity, no animations, no duplicates, etc.


Interact with other members with likes, messages or select a pre-written question for your match to answer. Actual back and forth correspondence, however, is reserved for paid members only. Once you’ve signed up for a paid subscription, messaging is easy and straightforward.


Instead of browsing an infinite sea of profiles, you are given 3-7 matches per day, which you can file through to select the ones you’re actually interested in contacting.

Special Features

EliteSingles bases its matchmaking process on personality traits analysis based on two factors: your profile, which is created after you finish the personality test, and your search preferences. Focusing on serious relationships seekers, this online dating site asks new members to fill in a detailed questionnaire. The data obtained from the member’s answers enable EliteSingles to draft a personality profile, which later on is completed and refined by the member’s activity on the site.

Site Safety

Hide your profile

You can activate or deactivate matching in order to hide your profile. This means that the main pool of members will not be able to see your profile, while your matches will still have access to you.

Delete matches

Once you delete a match, they can no longer contact you and your message history will be deleted.


There is no profile verification or photo verification on behalf of the members.

Fake profiles

EliteSingles promises to delete profiles that seem to provide false information or represent false identities. They use “SSL Encryption, Fraud Detection and Manual Profile Verification” to weed out the scammy profiles.

Report catfish

Members can report other member profiles which they believe to be fake. The EliteSingles team will review the profile and make a decision on whether or not to remove the profile.

Data collection

According to EliteSingles, your personal data is only collected and stored for the duration of your membership.

Customer support

In the world of online dating, EliteSingles doesn’t have the best reputation when it comes to customer support. They are slower than other sites when it comes to responding to inquiries, their customer service is limited to email, and members report having trouble canceling their memberships.

  • Email
    Contact customer support from their contact form on their website.
  • Video Tutorials
    EliteSingles has a channel on YouTube.
  • FAQ
    Their FAQ answers questions about memberships, cancellations, upgrades, and how to make the most out of your experience.
  • Blog
    EliteSingles has an online magazine/blog filled with useful dating articles, tips and advice.

Final Word

With their professional and algorithmic matchmaking service, EliteSingles goes beyond superficial differences to deliver you high quality potential partner recommendations. Their algorithm takes into considerations a great number of factors that can act as deal breakers at any stage of the relationship making sure you have the highest chance of finding that happy and long-term relationship. EliteSingles goes beyond the ethnicity and religious beliefs in their level of questioning, investigating more refined issues like the importance of age difference, lifestyle and future goals. We highly recommend EliteSingles if you are serious about finding that special someone.

Emily Henson

is it absolutely a must that all users have a university degree and more such as a Master’s or PHD? I have college from an accredited University but did not finish due to health reasons, and am a preschool teacher instead of a doctor or a lawyer, will I be disallowed?

It's not required, although EliteSingles reports that 85% of their users have completed higher education.

I just wondering why this dating site rejected my profile, is there any specific reason?

Elite Singles says on one of their support pages that profile text that "does not include information about yourself (for example, "tell you later") ...cannot be approved. "  You should contact their customer support to find out if you need to edit your profile in some way.

Is the EliteSingles site secure?

Yes, all of your personal data is transmitted in encrypted form and EliteSingles uses a secure locked URL. Your personal information will not be shared with third parties.

Does elite allow me who to show my profile to during the matchong? How does the hiding profile work?

In your account settings, you can choose to turn off matching if you don't want your profile to be matched with others. Otherwise, EliteSingles will match you based on the answers to your questionnaire and singles who match with you will receive a notification with your profile information.
Zenaida Longo

What happens if you have paid subscription for 12 months, you found a match in 4 months and that’s the person you’re interested in dating, do you keep paying until the end of the subscription?

You can cancel your subscription but yes, if you signed up for 12 months, you won't get a refund for the rest of the time.

How do I report a false profile when the men delete their message immediately after I message them? The customer care center is only open Monday- Friday. This has happened to me twice, on weekends. The men are obviously up to no good!

There are a few options. One is from the messages, click the 3 dot menu and choose "report messages." If you are using the app, you can choose the 3 dot menu on the member's profile and click "report abuse." Finally, you could also use the ticket form on EliteSingle's site to contact the help center, and include as much info as possible like name, age, occupation, and location, and what the problem is, so they can find him and do something about it.

How much for just one month?

Top5 Team

Hi Dawn! It really depends on what package you take and if you pay just for one month, we would recommend checking their website for the most updated pricing.


Does the dating app allow you to email someone that s younger or older — for example I am 59 can I message someone who is 44 or vice versa or does the site have prescribed age ranges that both parties have to be in to communicate ?

Top5 Team

Yes of course as long as on both of your settings these are within the set ages.

Paul gilberto

Top5 Team

Hi Paul, sorry to hear about that – did you try to contact their customer support team? We’ve heard lots of other success stories from EliteSingles.
