We wish to offer everyone the possibility of finding love on EliteSingles. Every member has the opportunity to try out the service for free before subscribing to a Premium Membership. This way they can ascertain whether their partner suggestions conform to their expectations before they commit to an EliteSingles Premium membership.
As soon as the personality test has been completed, a basic member has the opportunity to browse their partner suggestions. Excluding the free, basic forms of communication, such as sending a smile, one needs to subscribe to a Premium Membership in order to benefit from all means of communication, such as sending a personalised text message or leaving comments on a profile.
Premium member are primarily matched with other Premium Members but it is still possible to find a minority of recently registered members in your partner suggestions. It is important not to delete them too soon. Some people need a bit of time to decide whether they wish to join or not. Basic members can subscribe to a Premium membership at any time; most usually do!
This is why it's best to wait a few weeks before deleting a match because online dating is a much slower process than dating in the real world. The benefits of keeping the basic members far outweighs the fact that they cannot respond yet.
Please remember that your partner suggestions do not know they have been suggested to you. This is why it's important to visit the profiles and initiate contact, even if they are basic, and wait and see if they do subscribe.
The basic members receive messages which they will be able to read once they have subscribed. So, it's actually good incentive for them purchase a membership!
