Professional dating: a match who understands your goals
by Sophie Watson
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.
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.

Indeed, it is perfectly possible to have both a high-flying career and a happy personal life, especially with a site like EliteSingles on hand to provide compatible matches and boost one’s luck in the matters of love. Not only do we streamline our match suggestions, we make sure our site is equally accessible – giving you online dating access, wherever you are!

Our aim is to make sure that you can live your life whilst having the full EliteSingles experience on-the-go.
Are you looking to share your ambitions with someone really compatible? Then EliteSingles is right for you. We determine compatibility by means of an in-depth personality test, developed from the Five Factor Model theory. This lets us assess your character traits at a meaningful level, which helps match you with someone who gets you. If you’re after a partner who understands your business commitments, then this is the perfect place to start.
Of course, we understand that a great relationship is about more than just personality: it also requires that you and your partner have harmonious lifestyles. This is why we endeavor to match singles with compatible men and women from their part of New Zealand. If you are, for instance, looking for love in Auckland, you can find local singles on your wavelength with us.
Another way to give your love-life a boost is to approach dating the way you would business. EliteSingles may be able to streamline the process of finding a date but, for true romantic success, extra effort is needed. A great trick can be to treat a first date as you would a business meeting: be on time, give your date your full attention and, if you think that there is a chance that the two of you could work together, make sure to follow up on what you’ve started.
Indeed, there’s no need to be like the corporate-minded Kiwis who take a diffident approach to dating. You can balance a successful professional and a successful private life for, with help from a professional dating agency like EliteSingles, it is easier than ever to find compatibility without compromise. Why not try our streamlined, professional dating service today?
