Elite Meeting is a dating site for people who consider themselves wealthy, successful and attractive. You can build a detailed profile with photos, chatting to other members using email-style messages. There is also more of a focus on wealth with EliteMeeting than on other dating websites, allowing you to locate locals who earn within a certain threshold or who have assets worth a lot of money.
If you’re interested in finding wealthy dates, this could be the site for you. Not every member is rich (some consider themselves attractive or professional, or a blend of those two traits) but the idea is that this site attracts high earners.
Building a profile is quick and simple, although we found some of the pages loaded a little slowly, which can become irritating. You can upload as many photos as you like, and quite a lot of members have uploaded high quality snaps to entice you.
Free membership is available, although you won’t be able to communicate with other members until you upgrade. Becoming a VIP isn’t cheap, particularly beyond the first month when the price bumps up to around $70 per month. This is much higher than we’ve seen elsewhere, but then perhaps it’s an attempt to make sure the site’s members are wealthy enough to sign up in the first place.
Search facilities are somewhat lacking, as you can only really find members based on their age, gender and location. We’d expect more search options, particularly concerning income and professional life. As such, it’s not that easy to find someone who suits your preferences using the search alone, you’ll have to browse quite a few profiles to find your matches.
The site’s blog is somewhat random. Whilst some of the posts do seem to link to the professional or elite lifestyle, others are about topics which seem to have very little to do with dating. For example, one post about Michael Jordan’s life and determination (which read a little like an advert for the blogger’s book) kept popping up. The site’s “advice” section is equally challenging, offering just a voice-over which is “exclusively for men over 35”. There rest of the advice section provided no advice whatsoever.
Unfortunately, we just can’t shake the feeling that Elite Meeting is a half-baked idea which charges large fees for little in return. The lack of focus on its help pages, and general lack of features, suggest that the site needs major work to bring it up to par. If you create a free profile and wish to contact a few members, it may be worth signing up for the first month – but remember to cancel, otherwise you’ll be hit with a $70 per month bill.
