Honor and Edward: “After talking for a few weeks online we decided to meet for our first date. He was a true gentleman and we hit it off straight away. We had a fabulous first date and saw each other several times after that...our relationship blossomed every day. After about a month of dating, we became official and it’s been wonderful! I was a bit skeptical of online dating at first, but when you put the effort in and try, it really does pay off. After my experience meeting my partner I would definitely recommend online dating for friends and family!”
Mark, Boston: “I had seen commercials for EliteSingles, and was originally hesitant. But after registering and interacting with the site, I was impressed with the quality of my partner suggestions and just how much they took into consideration what I was looking for in my search for a partner. I have to admit I have been pleasantly surprised.”
Claire, Pittsburg: “Looking for someone who is educated and motivated hasn't always been easy for me. After checking out Elite Singles, I decided to give it a try. I had to play around with the settings a little, but the people I am being suggested are precisely what I am looking for. So far, so good.”
Elite’s personality test is based on McCrae and Costa’s ‘Five Factor Model,’ which measures members on 5 areas: openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. The site then uses these results to provide singles with 3-7 daily matches.
Elite also offers easy-to-use inbox messaging with customizable questions to help break the ice. Users can also send each other “winks,” “flirts,” and “smiles.” If you happen to be matched with someone who doesn’t have featured photos, you can message them with a “Photo request,” prompting them to upload one.
To enrich your profile, you can add posts and photos, which other users will be able to view, like, and comment on under the “Recent photos” section. You can share more about yourself by adding short “blurbs” to your profile. When browsing between singles, users are able to save profiles so they can easily find and reach out to them later.
More Elite features include:
To sign up to Elite, you must complete a registration form, including your gender, gender of the partner you’re looking for, your email address, and password. When picking their nicknames, users are encouraged to use their first names for a more personal feel.
Your profile will be activated immediately upon completing the 5-factor personality test, at which point you can see the results of your test and add more details to your profile.
There are 2 membership options: Basic and Premium. With a basic membership, you can take a personality test, receive partner suggestions, upload photos, and receive messaging. By upgrading to a premium subscription, users enjoy unlimited messaging, a mobile app, and a more detailed personality profile. Premium users are also suggested to other singles more frequently and are able to use the “Have you met…” feature.

The Elite experience is both enjoyable and safe, with an intuitive experience that will remind you of using popular social media platforms. For instance, you can update you profile with posts and photos, which other users can then comment and like. Additionally, messaging with other singles is a rich experience that includes fun gestures and emojis. To keep users safe while using all of these features, Elite implements several techniques (more on that below).
Elite Singles takes various steps to protect its users:
Elite’s customer support verifies profiles, and offers users a detailed online help section. You can contact customer care at any time through email.
If you’re a career-oriented, educated single in Canada—Elite is just for you. When your job is a top priority, finding time to date is a challenge. Elite Singles will help you overcome just that by not only introducing you to singles who share common goals and values as you, but by exposing you to a large amount of people in a short amount of time—finding love doesn’t get more efficient than that!
