ELITESINGLES is a partnership service designed for South African singles looking for a long-term commitment. Our smart profiling delivers compatible partner suggestions in line with your personal search preferences, and we manually verify all new profiles to ensure users have a smooth, safe environment in which to meet other like-minded singles.
Our vision is to maintain the industry's highest standards – to be the dating site as committed as our members are to finding love. Numerous certifications and awards testify how successful we already are in this area. Nevertheless, the most important indicator of the value of our work is, and will always remain, the couples that meet each other through our platforms on a daily basis.
Our Matching Process
The ELITESINGLES matching process introduces members on the basis of an initial personality questionnaire and your individual search preferences. We curate the site by manually verifying all profiles, automatically removing inactive members, and proactively removing users we suspect are not serious. This means our members have a smooth browsing experience and can focus on dating.
The ELITESINGLES personality profile is based on the “Big Five” model of personality psychology. Initially developed in the 1990s, it is one of the most important and renowned concepts in modern psychology. Using the results of five personality dimensions, we are able to identify couples who are particularly well suited to a long and happy relationship together. Then, if the couple's demographic data and personal preferences are also a match, the two members are suggested to each other.
The demographic data we consider includes gender, age, residence, profession and level of education. Additionally, in order to match personal preferences we explore various aspects that could be significant for long-term relationship prospects. For instance, we ask "How important is your future partner's religion?" and "Do you want children? “
Protecting your personal information is of our utmost priority. We utilise Manual Profile Verification, SSL Encryption and a Fraud Detection System to make sure members feel safe online. All sensitive data is encrypted and will not be revealed to any third party or other members.
