Is EliteSingles a scam?

Although EliteSingles has helped many online daters meet singles they are compatible with, our site is not safe from the prejudices that are still held by some people in regards to the legitimacy and efficiency of online dating sites. Some people argue that online dating is not a viable option to find a serious relationship, that it's unromantic and too expensive. However, many of these prejudices are misguided. In fact, every year 1.3 million singles worldwide get to know their partner online, and this number is growing daily.

It is, of course, important to be wary, as some sites are indeed scams. However, EliteSingles is not one of them.. We are an online dating site dedicated to matching compatible couples and finding love for all who join our site.

If you are still worrying that EliteSingles may be a rip-off, here are three of the biggest myths about our site being a scam, rebuked and rebuffed.

1. “Fake profiles”

One of the most popular prejudices against online dating is the belief that many of the profiles are fake. Recently, in the news, you may have heard of a few fraudulent online dating sites creating fake profiles in order to catfish members into paying fees to use their site. You can rest assured that EliteSingles does not do this, it is unlawful and not in our interest to cheat our members out of their money.

However, a common problem for online dating sites is online scammers making fake profiles on sites which are otherwise reputable. In order to avoid this on EliteSingles, we manually check each individual profile to guarantee that everyone on our site is serious about the search for love. We use SSL Encryption, Fraud Detection and Manual Profile Verification to ensure our members feel completely comfortable when using our service.

2. “Overpriced: a dating site for snobs”

This prejudice is spread by people who have not tried our site and who have become hung up on the word ‘Elite’. In fact, we are a dating site used by a wide variety of Canadians: namely single men and single women who are serious about their search for love. There are some commonalities that connect our members; for instance, the majority of our members are educated, relatively affluent, and between the ages of 30 and 55. However, singles from all walks of life find love on our site, and above all, we are designed for all singles seeking a committed, long-lasting relationship.

As for our pricing, we offer two different membership options, a free basic membership and a premium option. The basic membership is designed to allow users to see if they like the site, whereas by paying our premium membership fees, you will get full access to all features of the site.

3. “No chance of success”

One of the benefits of online dating is that you are provided with access to more potential partners than you would be able to meet in your daily life. However, some people still believe that they will not be able to find love online because the type of people who are dating on the internet will not be serious or suited to them. As a site committed to helping our users find a long-term partner, EliteSingles helps by narrowing your search to those who you are compatible with.

We understand that you might have specific demands in a partner, we also understand how difficult it can be to meet someone who shares your interests, goals and background. Our smart profiling process, which gives us insight into your personality and what you are looking for in a relationship, lets us introduce you to like-minded eligible singles. As a result we're able to create on average 2000 happy couples every month.
