Avoid this site like the plague (and their affiliated sites)
I've found this site a complete waste of time and money. It's one of the more expensive offerings so you'd expect you'd be getting quality. The matching algorithm is a joke. I was continually suggested men who were way shorter and older than the criteria I selected and who lived outside my specified radius - often offering people in another state! The policy saids they'll give a refund within 3 days but that's only if you haven't corresponded with anyone.
Absolute crock of crap
What an absolute crock of crap & rip-off is this website.
This is my first experience (reluctantly) with a dating website, & absolutely my last.
I live in regional Victoria & specified 50km radius because of logistics.
In 2 months I've received 4 suggestions meeting that criteria & others are as far away as Sydney.
When I tried to complain I was advised via HELP to fill in Customer Care form, but no such form exists on their website.
My only option is to write to the Head Office in Germany.
Avoid them like the plague !!!!!!
Total Rio Off - Even Bumble is better!
Earlier this year tried Silver Singles. First of all they give hardly any info and you think you are paying monthly but it’s the whole amount up front. Matches are just rubbish most of them could date my mother and the only one I find and started a relationship with was a complete narcissist (please be careful out there) Ditched it. Picked myself up and decided one more go so just tried EliteSingles. Thought wow been here before? Same deal no info etc, etc!
Same matches same loser men pretending to be 20 years younger or total psychos! So j...
An expensive VIP club with nobody else there
Its like going to a fancy VIP club with a really high door charge, only to get inside and realize you're the only one there.
Despite living in a large city there were less than 10 active profiles within an hours drive.
For my $150 subscription I got:
Pictures of people too far away.
1 semi-awkward coffee date that went no further. They declined my request for a partial refund and the support staff are condescending. Do not fall for it!
Don't trust it
Foolishly I bought subscriptions to Elite Singles and Silver Singles only to discover that most matches are the same on both sites. Does this mean that everyone else is stupid too and pays two subscriptions or do the two sites share profiles so it looks as if they have plenty of members.
Apart from that the matching is pretty poor.
No receiving my messages
My matches are not receiving my messages when I respond to them , I was having a nice chat and suddenly none is receiving my messages
Does anyone know how to fix this please?

Worst site EVER.... No customer Service
Completely frustrated by this site. I paid my membership. Tried to get refund. No response until too late for refund rules to apply. After arguing that their site was to blame and proving my correctness - 50% was refunded for a 3 instead of 6 month membership. Since then I have no access to anything on site. I can not receive messages, matches, emails or look at photos. I have contacted customer service every few days and each time they reply with how to fix a problem - but not the problem I have asked for. THIS IS THE WORST SITE I HAVE EVER BEEN ON. Terrible service.
Fraudulent site full of fake profiles and con artists
This site definitely does not even warrant 1 out of 5 ...at least 20 percent of the profiles are fake ...they are scammers based in Russia, India and Nigeria or elsewhere.
I have asked for a full refund after two weeks ...doubt I’ll get my money back
Beware ...do not subscribe to this service you will be sorely disappointed
The matches are totally random and done seemingly by region. So at one point all the matches are 700-800 kms away, regardless of preferences you set. The closest matches I've had are 200 kms from me...slightly more than the 100k I selected. It's always more money more money. The other side of the scam is opting out of payment...they charge like a wounded buffalo to start with and then, hopefully you forget to cancel, and they'll charge you again.
Great way to print money while providing zero customer service.
Expensive dating and full of professional women who don't seem to care about image!
Why I joined: A friend of mine recommended the platform over the more popular ones arguing that its higher price point weeds out the hot girls just looking to grow their instagram accounts or the numerous fake profiles that plague Tinder and other dating apps.
The cost: You pay upfront either 3, 6 or 12 months so don't be fooled by the /month figure as the minimum you will have to fork out is $167 up to $383!!! If you sign up don't fall for the marketing gimmick and think to yourself "I'll get a better deal if I pay the higher amounts", belo...w I'll explain why this is not a good value IMHO. The girls: Once you've signed and Elitesingles has secured your monetary stash it will probably be the first time you'll find out you only get 20 girls to browse/day (That's right I did say 20!!!!!) In other words if you are shorter than 1.80m (apparently this is the minimum height requirement by the majority of Internet girls!!) photogenically challenged or your Ferrari 488 GTB isn't in one of your photos you probably won't get many likes and all you'll have to go by each day is 20 potential matches. (Talk about slim pickings). Now because you are willing to trade more of your hard earned $ in the expectation you'd get a higher % of quality candidates you're probably curious just how good this promise land inhabited by like minded professional women really is? After all you will be spending 30 minutes of your life answering lots of silly questions and surely Elitesingles magical love algorithm will show you exactly what you're looking for? Well let me fill you in:
waste of money
The site claims to be able to match you according to your criteria. Firstly, you actually need members to match other members. Secondly, the matching doesn’t even come close. It is inconsistent and seemingly random. They fool you by making it exclusive and hiding photos but don’t be fooled. Customer service is non existent. They take your money and run and don’t actually care about proving the service they are actually selling you. It’s a scam of the heart and the wallet. BE WArNED
This is a con site beware
This site is expensive IE signs top for months but does not deliver. The only supposed matches do not meet basic geographic criteria nor do they meet personality test results, often almost opposite.
Buyer be ware do not sign up
Poor and expensive. No success.
This is a dating site that is not true to what it does for your money. It us ezmxpensive, 90% of clients are NOT professional. It is a difficult site to navigate. They keep your profile up long after you have left/withdrawn membership.
Disgraceful bunch of thieves
Avoid like the plague. This a German company whose small print locks you financially into a 12 month contract at an extortionate rate. If you sign up for 6 months they then charge you for the additional 6 months regardless. They are thieves.a disgusting business.
Oh and their platform is pathetic with very few people on it. Elite my are!!
Thieving bunch of German f'kers
False advertising and poor support
I signed up after a friend recommended this site and I wish I had not. Most men have no photos or information and are supposedly my matches-by what criteria?! Those that do post pics are easily 10 years older than their presented age. I wrote support immediately after completing my profile and at less than 8 hours of use (well within their 72 hour cancellation policy,) and they refuse to cancel the account nor refund my fees. SHAME! Buyer beware...this is an awful company and product.
Beware, This is a scam!!
Do not even think of registering with this site. It is an utter scam. I registered 5 months ago on a premium membership signing up for 6 months, and under the impression they charge monthly basis (very expensive). Instead they charge me for 6 months straight away. For 5 months i have not got a single message or reply from anyone. I made a slight error when registering and tried to contact them, there is no way you can contact them. No email, no telephone number, No address. They do show an address in Germany, I have doubts how accurate that is. This is a totally rip off, and I don't know how they got clearance from ASIC to operate in Australia.

Utter garbage avoid at all costs
Nothing Elite whatsoever about this site ! You can’t contact anyone to complain and if you do find a way no one replies. I only found Instagram to send a message. Utter con and the site is full of ugly no hopers! Load of crap and I’m so angry I paid 120 pound or more for this!
