EliteSingles Review

Morgan Mandriota

In a Nutshell

As a self-proclaimed sapiosexual who knows her Myers-Briggs personality type (INFJ) and Enneagram (4w3) results by heart, I find intelligence an incredibly attractive trait in a partner. I’m not too concerned with my partner’s level of education, but his daily habits, personality, and the way he conducts himself in a relationship must be aligned with my needs. EliteSingles provides all of that information along with various other features.


  • Matches based on personality test
  • 82% of members are university graduates
  • Profiles are manually verified


  • No free search on the database
  • Members must pay to see photos and get matches
  • Time consuming signup process

Signup Process

Signing up to EliteSingles will take around 30 minutes. After filling out basic information, you'll be asked to complete a personality test.

EliteSingles signup

The signup process consists of a personality assessment that aims to measure your personality across 5 different dimensions:

  1. Openness: Are you open to new challenges and thinking about abstract concepts?
  2. Conscientiousness: Do you prefer a set schedule and to finish important tasks right away?
  3. Extraversion: Do you like being the center of attention? Do you have a wide social circle of friends and acquaintances?
  4. Agreeableness: Are you concerned for others? Do you enjoy helping others and contributing to their happiness?
  5. Neuroticism: Do you get upset easily? Do you feel anxious a lot and worry about a lot of different things?

To be quite honest, there were WAY too many questions that you’re required to answer when you originally sign up for the app. There are literally more than 100 questions (115 to be exact), but the results were well worth it.

The test is based on contemporary psychology which asserts that there are 5 basic dimensions of personality, termed the "Big 5" personality traits. Due to the variety of questions, the signup process is relatively time consuming. However, EliteSingles needs this information to suggest matches that are highly suitable. Your curated matches are very closely paired with your answers to those questions so your odds of finding the perfect partner who meets your relationship and intelligence needs are high.

As you proceed through the questionnaire, you’ll get more detailed statements so the system can gain an understanding of your personality:

  • I often leave clutter in my room.
  • I'm good at analyzing problems.
  • I stand up for myself and my interests.
  • I'm easily discouraged.
  • I often waste my time. 
  • I like order and regularity.
  • I have little patience. 
  • I grasp situations quickly. 
  • I like to do nice things for other people. 
  • I always seek adventure.

Applicants are asked to rate their answers according to the following sliding-scale measurements: doesn't apply at all, slightly applies, completely applicable. 

Some applicants may be deterred by the complexity of the forms and rush through them without taking the time to make sure the information is accurate. This can also affect the suitability of the matches you are offered. 

Matchmaking & Search Functions

EliteSingles’ matchmaking brings you highly suitable matches based on results of the 5 Factor Personality Test. As mentioned, the test identifies your key personality traits along with chances for long-term compatibility with other members. For instance, in addition to identifying whether you prefer tidiness, you’re also asked how important this trait is in a future partner. Once the site finds demographic and personality traits to be a match, it suggests members to one another. 

The job titles of the matches you’re given are all extremely smart and successful, including but not limited to research scientists, molecular technologists, and engineers.

In addition, paid members can browse additional profiles through the “have you met” feature. This feature introduces members who may not have appeared in the usual daily matches. 

Finally, “wildcard matches,” similar to the swipe function on other popular dating apps, present you with blurred photos as well as the name, age, location and full profile of members. Shared traits are highlighted to help you make a decision on whether to accept or pass on the match.

Features & Communication Tools

EliteSingles’ most impressive feature is its matching algorithm, relying on the detailed personality test to identify over 29 personality traits and match you with users who would value these traits. The careful matchmaking ensures an efficient online dating experience, perfect for busy professionals.

The profile is another area in which EliteSingles shines. On your dating profile you’ll find the results of your personality test, and you can include as much or as little information about yourself, your interests and your hobbies as you’d like. EliteSingles even has expert profile advice available if you need a bit of support standing out from the crowd or crafting a strong profile.

You can add up to 24 photos to your profile, which is much more than with most dating sites. While you don’t have to add any photos, EliteSingles recommends that you do, as profiles with at least 1 quality image are 8 times more likely to be contacted. 

You can "like" specific parts of someone’s profile to show interest and start an interaction. This helps break the ice and lets you ease into conversation on a specific topic. All interactions are recorded in the message area. Other communication tools include inbox messaging, sending “smiles,” and 5 ice-breaker questions.

The site also includes insights and tips from relationship experts and psychologists to help guide you through the dating process and craft the perfect profile.

EliteSingles Love Stories

Looking back, Shirley remembers how fast it all seemed, ‘Malcolm decided we were meant to be together within about 2 weeks of us emailing. It just took me a little bit longer to believe that it could be real.’ As it turns out, Malcolm was right. The pair got engaged within 6 weeks of their first meeting. Malcolm remarks at how a chance match led him to Shirley.” - Shirley and Malcolm

It seems EliteSingles gave fate a much-needed nudge as Tina and Adam discovered they only lived 7 minutes from each other. So, they met at a favorite local restaurant… At dinner, Tina could see that they had a lot in common and it was obviously a roaring success... as Tina herself says, ‘every day since then has been magical.” - Tina and Adam

Enjoying many similarities, John and Cindy connected via shared content on their profiles. Although they initially connected online with EliteSingles, their chemistry grew quickly… At the foundation of a lasting relationship is friendship, and John and Cindy shared this special connection.” - John and Cindy

Safety & Security

EliteSingles is concerned with users’ online safety and the protection of personal information. The site uses an online verification feature to ensure profiles and photos belong to real daters. In addition, the site employs software which ensures no photos can be copied or downloaded from the site. 

Other security features include an SSL-secured website for protection against credit card fraud. EliteSingles also employs methods to prevent harmful or offensive messages by alerting the site of the use of certain keywords. Users can report abuse and delete matches they deem inappropriate. All sensitive data is encrypted and will not be shared with third-party sources or other members.

    Nothing on the sites so I don't use it much. It's not really my type of dating site and just no need for me to use it

    I feel that Elite Singles gives you your money's worth for the services rendered. It is the only site where I can find someone as well established and elite, as my own self. It is worth the cost. Great quality of service.

    It is a great idea and it's awesome. Great to meet interesting people. Good matching algorithms.

    I like that there is a standard for the people on the site. I appreciate that everyone on there has an occupation and is looking for commitment. I had previously used free services like Badoo and MeetMe, where the selection of partners is full of degenerates

    Gracelynn, CA

    EliteSingles is a great service and all, but the competition is everywhere and it's just too similar to any other dating site. The price doesn't really compete when you can get the same output for cheaper

    Allison, MN

    They provide great customer service, great matches. and a very easy website to use. I was very pleased with their business format.

    Audrey, RI

    Without paying this app pretty much did not allow me to do anything which does not make sense for a dating app.

    Michael, CA

    It's ok - I wish I had more matches and that I could find someone I am interested in - always the same people on these sites....need to have more genuine people on there.

    Tiana, FL

    Because it was kind of difficult to use at first. I didn't understand how to use it but I like it now.
