In order to introduce our members to local singles who are truly compatible we use a two-part Smart Profiling System to assess each and every new user. The first part of the assessment relies on a 240-question personality test, which is based on psychology’s construct of ‘The Big Five’ personality traits; extraversion, agreeableness, openness, conscientiousness and neuroticism. The second part of the assessment asks users to indicate their personal partner preferences on factors such as age, build, distance, smoking and drinking habits, religion and more. The thorough assessment process gives us valuable insight into the characteristics, values and attributes of each of our members, which allows us to weed out the less-compatible matches and instead focus on providing quality introductions.
Taking online communication offline
As compatible as a pair may look on paper, it’s that magical, often illusive ingredient –chemistry –that ultimately determines if an online match works as an offline couple. The first date is, of course, the vital step in the dating process. But it’s nothing to fear; a recent survey of EliteSingles members found that first dates are better with EliteSingles, revealing the efficacy of our matchmaking process.
