Professional dating: a match who understands your goals

Single, professional man

Pursuing a successful career is so rewarding. Yet, it also involves significant time and effort – and it is not easy to find someone who appreciates the dedication needed to excel. Happily, EliteSingles members understand occupational ambitions. With an average age of 30 – 55 and a wide variety of careers, our users know what it means to be professional. If you’re ready to join them, then why not get started with EliteSingles today?

Corporate Kiwis: too busy for romance?

Since the 1970s, marriage rates have been more or less on the decline in New Zealand. At the same time, the median age at first marriage has risen – from 22 in 1971 to 31 in 2012.1 These figures suggest a move away from early marriage in New Zealand, perhaps due to the fact that many of today’s singles find themselves nurturing their ambitions for success before they think about settling down. Indeed, many Kiwis with dreams of scaling the corporate ladder put marriage and romance on the backburner. It’s easy to see why: although the official New Zealand work week is 40 hours, this only really applies in theory.

Many workers – especially those in competitive professions – are putting in 50 hours or more per week, with the rise of smart phones giving them a constant connection to the office.2

While this can be very effective for advancing one’s workplace ambitions, it can leave little time at the end of the day for traditional socialising. Indeed, many career-minded singles who live to work but still want love can discover that the latter is hard to find by traditional means – how many people do you know who feel they are simply too busy to hunt for a date?

EliteSingles online dating: a streamlined service for busy professionals

A great solution for those who are time-poor is online dating, with many single professionals finding it the perfect fit for their busy lives. It is immediately apparent why those with a hectic schedule find internet romance appealing: it provides a way to make dating fit their agenda, rather than the other way around. Yet, with so many sites in New Zealand promising true love, how do discerning singles know which one to choose?

For those looking for a more professional dating agency, EliteSingles is the website of choice. Not only is our service safe and secure, we put a lot of effort into streamlining our matchmaking suggestions. This ensures that our members spend less time searching for a compatible match and more time finding someone truly on their wave-length. We pair our members based on their ideal NZ location, their relationship preferences and their personalities because we believe in helping busy Kiwis find someone truly special.
