Best dating sites: How does EliteSingles compare?

EliteSingles is one of Australia’s best dating sites, but how exactly are we different to our main competitors? What is it that sets us apart? We believe we are the best dating site for sophisticated and ambitious singles serious in their search for love.

There are a lot of good dating sites out there, but which is the best fit for you? In this article, we take a look at some of Australia’s best dating sites and question why EliteSingles should be the first choice for Aussie singles serious about searching for a long-term relationship.

Why choose EliteSingles?

We connect you to Aussie singles who’re also enthusiastic about finding long-lasting love. Our matchmaking system is designed to help you meet people you’re actually compatible with, so you have the best shot at long-term happiness. We match you with compatible partners by looking at your relationship requirements and answers to our in-depth personality test, which is based on Five Factor Model theory of personality traits, analysing your levels of openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and neuroticism. We hide inactive users and manually verify all new profiles. This means that you can be sure of be matched with real people, with real long-term potential.

EliteSingles vs. RSVP

RSVP is one of Australia’s most popular dating sites. With over 2 million active users aged 26-40, there’s a good chance of meeting someone over their platform. The site's approach to matchmaking is straightforward. If you’re using the free account, you can only search potential partners based on their age, gender and location. If you do decide to purchase one of their Standout or Premium accounts, your profile appears will appear at the top of the search results and you’ll get access to compatibility data.

Our matchmaking algorithm is a great way for users to meet people if they're new to online dating and are nervous about approaching people cold.
