There's no need to feel nervous about internet dating – unlike many South African dating sites, we verify each new member to make sure that everyone is genuine, so all you need to worry about is finding a compatible match.
Whether ‘home’ is Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth or elsewhere, Elite Singles offers you a local dating service which helps you easily meet compatible singles in your city.
Using Facebook, Hinge sends you a selection of friends-of-friends every day at noon.
A simple profile photo followed by age, job and education information are all users have to go off of when they rate the potential connection on a scale of one to five.

Those who mutually rate each other at a four or higher will get introduced via email.
“Black Status” users are sent 100 matches per day, which means they have a large number of Facebook friends who also use Hinge.
