How does our matchmaking system work?
Here we introduce the main factors we consider to provide a smooth browsing experience, so that you can discover if EliteSingles matchmaking is right for you.
Identifying and matching your personal profile
Part of the matchmaking process is our personality test, based on the “Five Factor Model” of personality traits, one of the central concepts of psychology in use since the 1980s. Using this questionnaire tells us about what makes you unique and allows us to consider what you look for in a relationship. View this at any time in your profile under “Personality Profile”.
By comparing your profile with those of thousands of other members, we identify others who complement your personality and suggest between 3-7 per day. This means those we suggest fit with both your search criteria and personality, providing a simple browsing experience so you can focus on dating.

Matchmaking using your preferences
EliteSingles delivers recommendations based on a number of factors. The initial questionnaire, about two-thirds of the registration process, tells us about your traits, values and likely behaviour, creating the personality profile we use to introduce you to other users. While this is one part of the process, it does not end with simply comparing profiles.
