EliteSingles Features: Have You Met... Your ‘WildCard’ Matches
They say variety is the spice of life, and if you’re looking for a broader selection of local singles than your daily matches offer then our Have You Met… section should be your first port of call. Also known as ‘wildcard matches’, these are people we think could still make great potential partners, but who don’t match up to one of your main preferences.
Imagine this scenario: Alan’s a great guy. He fits your preferences perfectly, except that he’s 5ft 9” and you’ve listed that you’re not interested in guys below 5ft11”. Poor Alan, denied the chance of meeting you by just a few centimetres. But the Have You Met… feature gives you and Alan another swing at it – by smudging the preferences just a little, you’re able to meet a whole wealth of singles that aren’t quite ‘perfect’ but who could still be ‘the one’.
Your Matches vs. Have You Met…
At EliteSingles we offer a streamlined dating service. That is to say that the 3-7 matches we send you daily are our top picks for you, and we’re pretty confident that these matches constitute your best shot at a lasting relationship.
We base these matches on a number of important factors; we take into account the compatibility of your personalities (with the data from your personality test), your education level, income level, location and your own stipulated preferences too. In providing you with a limited number of potential partners, we hope you’ll be able to spend more time getting to know your best matches and waste less time on bad matches.
If and when you do have a little more time on your hands, however, why not check out the people listed on your Have You Met… page? Since these singles only just miss the cut, they aren’t what we’d call bad matches. Just not exact matches.
In fact, your ‘wildcard matches’ have their own advantage. They have the ability to surprise you, and if it goes well they could even make you re-evaluate your priorities in finding a new partner. Even if there are a couple of profiles for people that your own personal deal-breakers preclude you from dating, it has to be worth a look anyway!
