Our approach to online dating is based on the idea that strong, lasting relationships start with compatible matches.After you sign up for our easy registration process, you'll complete our personality questionnaire; giving us a fully-rounded picture of who you are and what you're looking for in a partner.

At Elite Singles we certainly take your age preferences into account when making a partner suggestion - but we also know that true compatibility requires a deeper connection.

That's why we encourage singles with a wide range of interests, backgrounds, and lifestyles to use our site: we want you to meet someone who truly suits you!

"The Harvard Crimson" reports that one in five Harvard students uses Date My School, and 50 percent of dates at Columbia University and New York University begin online via Date My School.

The University of California at Santa Barbara's "The Bottom Line" reports that college students are more likely than other age groups to use Okcupid, and Plentyof Fish also tend to be more popular among college students.

It's a truly efficient way to start meeting older singles on your wavelength.

Some senior dating sites seem to think that being in a similar age group is all that's needed for two people to make a match.

College students from all walks of life try online dating, and Pew reports that 36 percent of all single people have tried online dating.

Online dating can make it easier to meet people, particularly for shy or socially awkward people, so people who are uncomfortable with the bar scene or who don't have a large group of friends might be more likely to date online.

Online dating once was something people had to keep secret, and was treated as the domain of people who couldn't get a "real" date.

But online dating has gone mainstream, and a 2010 survey found that about 17 percent of people who had married in the previous three years met their spouses online.

College students are settling into a new environment and often struggle to meet people, and this change in scenery and lifestyle can make online dating appealing.
