' maybe you'd only like to date someone who lives within a certain distance parameter (Elite Singles members hail from all over Australia, from the beautiful Sunshine Coast to downtown Melbourne and everywhere in between!
) Whatever your specific partner requirements may be, Elite Singles boosts your chances by providing you match suggestions tailored to your hopes and wishes - it's simply the smarter way to date online.
Five years ago when online dating was less popular, many Christian singles tended to shy away from online dating with the view that partnerships which began online were somehow inferior to partnerships that had begun in the Church. In a major research report into the efficacy of online dating by scholars of Harvard and Chicago Universities, it was concluded that couples who met online have fewer divorces and higher marriage satisfaction.
These resounding claims are enough to convince any single to seek a partner online, but it’s of course especially attractive for Christian dating who often tend to be marriage-focussed when it comes to dating.
In fact, it's one of the pitfalls of Christian dating - they are quite hard to find!
This is the reason so many of Australia's Christians are heading online to find like-minded singles.
In the words of Jenell Paris, social anthropologist at Messiah College; 'Christians should look online for dates because that's where the people are!
This is where the Elite Singles smart profiling system comes in –a matchmaking system based on an extensive set of questions designed to gain insight into your personality; your strengths and weaknesses, your morals and values, and your hobbies and interests.
Unfortunately the odds aren't in your favour; the census of 2011 found that 61% of Australians identify as Christian, but that only 1 in 7 of these actually attended Church on a monthly basis.
When you do the maths, what this really means is that the ‘pool’ of potential partners for christian singles in Australians is just 8% of the population - it's no wonder it's so hard to find a match!
