What is EliteSingles - and why should you choose us?

If you're thinking about trying online dating you'll no doubt be doing your research before picking a dating site. And you might be asking yourself why EliteSingles? or, even, what is EliteSingles? Simply put, we're an upmarket dating site for NZ singles who want more from love. We appreciate that most singles in New Zealand just want to find someone compatible and caring, but that, with busy lives and busy jobs, not everyone has the time to search for such a match. That's why EliteSingles matchmaking is designed to focus on compatible. quality matches, while also streamlining the matching process.

EliteSingles NZ: a service which can match your high expectations

When seeking a long-term partner it makes sense to be selective and EliteSingles works to help you meet the right people for you. The majority of our members are interesting and educated single Kiwi men and single Kiwi women between 30-55, many of whom have active professional careers and all of whom are looking for lasting, happy love.

We help them reach their goal by proving a NZ dating site that is focused on streamlining the search for a partner. Our thoughtful matchmaking system is designed with quality rather than quantity in mind, meaning we deliver matches based on potential for long-term harmony, while automatically filtering out inactive users and pro-actively removing those we suspect of not being genuine. It's our way of stacking the dating deck in your favour.

How do I join EliteSingles?

1. Register and Create Profile

The first step for successful dating with us is to complete your profile, providing information about yourself and adding a couple of profile pictures. This is a good opportunity to be a little creative – give a glimpse of the more interesting side of your personality and what makes you, you! You can update and change this information anytime.

2. Complete Personality Test

The next stage of the process is to fill out the extensive personality test. This consists of over 200 questions which effectively creates a comprehensive and accurate profile of you. The questions are based on the psychological Five Factor Model which calculates your levels of neuroticism, agreeableness, extraversion, conscientiousness, and openness.

3. Enter your Search Criteria

Following the personality test, you enter your relationship criteria: a step which essentially asks you to outline what you desire in a partner – specifying your preferred age, your desire for children and the distance between you, to name a few. We then let our thoughtful matchmaking process do what it does best: bring together like-minded NZ singles who have the potential for true, lasting connection.

4. Receive Partner Proposals

Finally, once we have collated all this information, we will start sending you around 3-7 partner proposals a day. The matches are formed through our smart profiling system which takes in to account your personality test results, your relationship desires and your location in New Zealand.
