How does it work?
When you subscribe for free, you’ll be asked to run a personality test. This is where they will analyse 29 unique personality traits in order for Elite Singles to provide the most suitable partners for you. The test takes around 20min, but it’s well worth it as it’s fun, enjoyable and extremely helpful. In addition, you can save your progress at any time and come back later.
After the test you just need to add photos (not mandatory, but highly recommended), a short description, hobbies, things you like to do, reveal your biggest wish, things you can’t stand, what makes you laugh, what is important in a relationship.
Once you’ve completed your profile you’re taken to your dashboards where you have all information about your matches and communications. There’s also a score for each match (100 being the highest), to help you understand how close to your perfect partner your potential matches are. This is super helpful and saves you loads of time and trouble.
You also get the chance of using 20 wildcard matches per day, this is a great opportunity to start a conversation with ‘less likely’ matches.
Let us start by user reviews, on both Android and IOS versions the review scores are appalling, with an app score below 2.5 stars. Does this mean the app is horrible? Not really, but there are a few annoying glitches and those are responsible for the low ratings.
The great news is, Elite Singles team is aware of how important an app is and so they’ve launched a totally new app to quick-start 2018.
The new app is much simpler and cleaner than the old one. You’re never one or two screen touches away from what you need, being very user friendly and easy to use. This is a massive step up from the old app we’ve tested, which had several annoyances and bugs, as mentioned by several users.
Busy people will be pleased the know they can use the app to message, edit profile and find more matches in a straight forward manner.
What we like the most is the fact that the app doesn’t try doing everything, but instead focus on what’s most relevant.
Elite Singles focus on the UK market and most of the members are based in large cities.
You’ll find a community focused on finding a serious relationship. Whilst members might be looking for their ideal partner, they are also often very busy individuals concentrating on their successful careers.
Members don’t tend to like time wasters and they will try giving their time to communicate with only a handful of matches.
This community isn’t one for ‘cheap chat’ and flirting. Whilst flirting can be nice, this community tends to focus more on real life values and facts. What is most important is who you are, what you are looking for and how compatible can you be.

What you get for free?
Once you join for me, you’ll be able to see matches that Elite Singles found for you, but images come blurred and you won’t be able to communicate. You can see their profile, where you’ll find physical attributes, level of education, Q&A answers.
Each day, you’ll see more matches and people showing interest in communicating, but in order to do so, you’ll have to pay for premium subscription. You can only send a smile or add someone as your favourite, but let’s be fair, this won’t get you a chance for love.
Of course, this being a great premium-dating website, a free account is only to provide you a tease and look and feel for both website and app. This being a great service, you will have to pay to be able to start communicating and dating.
We highly recommend that you go for the 6 months subscription at £24.95/month, as if offers great value for money.
Should you pay?
If you’re serious about dating and finding your perfect match, you should undeniably pay for Elite Singles. Once you joined free, check your matches and respective matching score (100 is the highest), we’re sure you’ll be waiting to join premium.
Once you pay, you’ll get:
– View all member photos
– See all profile visitors
– Read receipts for messages
– Unlimited communication

– 20 extra wildcard matches per day
The paid account is really the one way to fully enjoy the potential that Elite Singles has to offer.
How much will you pay?
3 months subscription – £39.95 per month
6 months subscription – £24.95 per month, save 37.5%
12 months subscription – £22.95 per month, save 42.5%
The best option is certainly to go for the 6 months subscription. 3 months period is too short for you to search for your ideal match. The 6 months subscription offers you plenty of time to enjoy dating whilst allowing you great saving of 37.5%.
We like the most
- The best place for adult professionals living in big cities looking for love
- Matches are great. No time wasting
- No pointless endless matching, just focus on what’s best for you
- The mobile app
We like the least
- The mobile app
The app need improvements, but the good news is they know it and we see frequent updates with bug fixes. After all, we all expect our mobile apps to work flawlessly, and this one isn’t quite there yet.
- Not for quantity
This is also not a negative, but be conscious this service isn’t the one for those who want to match and chat with hundreds of others. This is a focused service to find the right singles, not the masses.
Things you should know
Like most dating services, you will not be entitled to any refund of any payments made by you in respect of a paid membership. Once you pay for a subscription you’ll be on auto renewal for the same term when initial period ends. To avoid billing, paid membership must be terminated in writing 24 hours before the expiry of the term. If you terminate in less than 24 hours before the expiry of the term of the paid membership, you will be charged for the renewal term, and will continue to have access to a renewed paid membership as set out in the notice of renewal. The easiest way to ask for cancelation is via email: [email protected] or in-app contact to the Customer Care Team via the ‘Feedback’ link.
