Now with Dara, a dating assistant to help with everything from improving your profiles (for any app!), crafting the perfect icebreaker, organising dates and more...

Bored of swiping and sick of timewasters? Download Elate, made to make dating better.

Elate is a free dating app for singles looking for serious relationships, not hookups! With less ghosting, less swiping and fewer d*ckheads.

With unique features you won't find in apps like Hinge, Bumble or Tinder:

Less is more so chat with just three matches at a time for better conversations and less ghosting. The rest wait in your match queue until you both have a space to chat.

We bring you a daily selection of highly curated recommendations, so you can spend more time chatting and less time endlessly swiping.

It’s easy to find someone you fancy, but harder to find someone you like. So we match you on personality, values, interests AND looks.

We let you know if your date has moved on to chat with someone new, so you always know where you stand and aren’t left wondering and waiting.

We have a zero-tolerance, one-strike and you’re out policy for any type of harassment reported. No exceptions!

Send messages and see your likes for free. No premium subscriptions or no ads!

Don’t hinge your dating and relationship success on apps that rely on endless options instead of curated recommendations.

Use an app with fewer timewasters or superficial matches that never say anything.

Great app, but too small

I like the premise of the app and how it’s set out. It didn’t let me fall down a scrolling spiral, which was great for my mental health. And the interactions I’ve had with the technical team upon reporting a bug were superb, not only friendly and responding to my problem, but taking the initiative to ask for further feedback.

However, the app ran out of potential matches for me in less than a week and there were few profiles that I was genuinely interested in. If it had more users, I’m sure it would’ve been great.

If it grows and I find myself single still, I will definitely give it another go. For now, to end on a positive not, the app also made it extremely easy to delete my profile - no unnecessary hoops to jump through, very straightforward and immediate. In the age of “do this, then send us an email, then wait for confirmation” blah blah, this was extremely refreshing.

Best of luck growing the app!

Not enough people

App itself is good and I like the concept, however there are simply not enough people - I have been waiting for new people to appear for like half a day and still nothing.

Also, when you find a match in Discovery, maybe show what the other person has liked about you - at the moment I can see a number of hearts, but I can’t see what they have liked.

Hi enichora, thanks for the feedback, we really appreciate! We're pretty new (just launched in September) but we're growing faster every day so bear with us!

The more you rate stuff in the feed, the more recommendations you'll see in discovery and the thumbs show how much of their profile you've already liked. We're working on a way to show who's liked you, so keep an eye out for future updates!

Great for people who don’t like using dating apps a lot

I used to find swiping through loads of profiles so boring I like how you can only see a certain amount of people a day and like how you only speak to three people as well. You still get people who match and never say anything but that’s just par for the course these days I guess. Overall there’s more people actually interested in going on dates though which is the main thing

Thanks for the review!
