This site is far away from "Elite" as you can get.
I have joined EliteSingles and have paid £149.70 ($194.03) for a six-month premium membership (unlimited communication and intelligent matchmaking - you get what their computer system thinks is suitable). You are not able to search for any matches on your own, take what is given to you and pay for its basis, with no search option what so ever.
This site promised that it has a disproportionate amount of graduate professionals and sophisticated singles, 71% to be precise. Everything about this site would suggest a higher caliber of potential mates, to cut a long story short, (shorter than the 30 minutes it took to fill out a multiple choice personality profile before joining).
Thirty minutes of questions asking questions then to be presented with seven potential matches, none of whom I remotely liked and not in line with what I would look for in a date, and to make matters worse, you can’t specify what you want; it’s all based on your personality and what their algorithm suggests for you.
I was looking forward to meeting sophisticated singles above the average, but my matches were carpenters, builders and truck drivers! These matches I was given I would expect to find on Match.com.
Once you were presented with totally unsuitable matches, you have to wait 24 hours for the next set of potentials to be emailed to you.
By day four they seemed to have run out of men, and I was not given any matches at all.
To add to their choices, they offer you a handful of wildcards each day, but unless you are willing to travel across the country for a date, you can also rule these ones out.
I’d give EliteSingles one star. It’s not Elite, it’s the most expensive at £69.95 (one-month membership Premium Light), and I think totally misleading in its ethos.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
