PROS / Elite Singles deletes the profiles of people that never log on so you don’t waste time on them.
CONS / There is no way to narrow your search based on keywords.
VERDICT / If you are ready for a serious relationship, this site is going to be a good match for helping you find dates.
Elite Singles is designed around people who are serious about finding a match. This site uses an extensive personality questionnaire that focuses on 5 main factors and asks the serious questions that go beyond hair color and body type common on casual dating sites.
This site asks not only about your own education level but how much you care about that in your partner. It asks questions that tend to come with long-term relationships – whether or not you want children, whether you insist your partner have a specific religious affiliation and other similar themes. This site also removes people that don't log on often, so you are left only with people that care enough to interact regularly with the site.
Elite Singles is not one of the online dating sites that specifically invites participants of certain ages, religions or ethnicities, but this site does seem determined to appeal to those who have a high level of education. The landing page for the site states that more than 80 percent of members have a bachelor's degree or higher.
This site has fewer search options overall than the best of the best in our online dating reviews. You can't narrow your search to include only those profiles with photos, by keywords, by relationship types or activity status, although Elite Singles sort of handles that last one for you by deleting people that never log on.
There is not an instant messaging option with Elite Singles, but you can send digital smiles or "like" and comment on photos. A live chat option can be nice for some situations, but the lack of it is not a total deal breaker.
Elite Singles lacks some of the search tools that we prefer and there are no instant messaging options, but those are not the only factors for online dating success. While other sites are more flirty and fun, Elite Singles might be just the right tool for finding a long-term relationship. This site asks the deeper questions and takes the idea of online dating seriously. If that is what you are looking for, this site is worth considering.
