Most dating sites exploit your desire to find a partner

We have become used to free services. Social media profiles are free but still, the companies behind them are making a lot of money. How can that be? They earn their money partly from advertisers and partly from selling information about you to third party companies who can use that information for targeted marketing.


Most dating sites are no different. They tempt you with free profiles. What do you have to lose? Everything. Many dating sites who are trying to lure information out of you have a lot of fake profiles and some of the have robots pretending to be users that send you messages if you haven’t logged in for a while. It is easy getting the feeling of being betrayed and exploited. If something is free for you – you can be sure that you are the product. 



Educated Singles was created with a very different model

In light of how many social media and dating sites have misused the user’s private information Educated Singles has been created with a very different business model.


First of all – Educated Singles is not a dating site. It is a club, where people can meet for networking, socialising and of course dating. Members need to have at least a masters degree in order to join. There is a rigid identity and academic credential check before a new member is accepted.


Educated Singles has no free profiles. 

CEO Finn Majlergaard says “It is an honest and transparent business model. Like most other clubs the members pay a fee for the membership. And the fee is used to cover the cost and develop services for the members”


Having no free profiles is an effective way of eliminating fake profiles. We compare the name on the payment with the name on the profile. And fake profiles is a key concern for well-educated singles when they consider joining an online community.


Finn Majlergaard: “When we launched Educated Singles we were offered thousands of fake profiles we could feed into the system. I was quite shocked by that. I didn’t know it was that organised. Even more shocking was the price they asked for thousands of fake profiles. It was incredibly low, which means they must have a lot of customers.”

The 5 major challenges for meeting educated singles and tips for how to succeed

Meeting other educated singles can be challengingYou appear to have everything in life. A great job, a good education and perhaps even some children. But you still feel you miss something, name a partner in life who matches you both emotionally, sexually and intellectually. This is a lot to ask for, but it is nevertheless what most of us are dreaming about.

That is because you are more independent than other social groups and you have a lot of their confidence in things you already have, namely your educa

It's Not Your Imagination, Single Women: There Literally Aren't Enough Men Out There

From: Vice.comWe all have that friend: the beautiful, intelligent, driven woman who—like Katherine Heigl in every rom-com—can't find a decent date. Every guy she goes out with is an asshole; she consistently dates "below" her league, and she's on the verge of giving up on a committed relationship altogether. Not long after he turned 30, the writer Jon Birger realized he and his wife knew a lot of women like that. The couple didn't have a lot of single male friends left, but the many single women they knew all seemed to be buyers stuck in a seller's market. One of those friends, Birger told me, "had been dating a guy for a couple years. It certainly seemed like they were well on the

International academic singles travel a lot. It can be both an opportunity or a disadvantage

Travelling is great, but for some people, it can become a little too much and for others, it is a regular showstopper when it comes to starting a relationship. A lot of people travel very often for work, and not surprisingly it is the well-educated singles who travel the most.When you don't have a significant other person in your life it is both easy and convenient to throw your love at your work. These academic singles with international careers usually tell themselves that when they meet the right person they will travel less and change the priorities in their life.The only problem is, that despite all the great intentions, that it is very difficult to make these changes.

The 1 million € question for well-educated singles

I have a great education, a great job but can't find a partner - why? We all have dreams in our lives - different dreams of course. A lot of people are dreaming about getting a great education, a great job and a great life partner.  Many of those people usually succeed in getting the first two by working hard. The recipe for fulfilling the third dream is a lot more complex, uncertain and diversified.That is one of the reasons why we believe that there are so many well-educated singles around the world. Educated people know that hard work usually leads to the desired result - except when it comes to relationships.We have interviewed more than 3000 well-educated singles in 8 countries who

Women put off dating men who are 'too easy going' or 'too clever', psychology study finds

  Source: The Independent Women are put off from dating men who are either “too clever” or “too easy going”, a psychology study has found. The research found that while being intelligent and relaxed are desirable attributes in a prospective partner, it is nevertheless possible to have too much of a good thing. The study which looked at companion preferences discovered that while men and women find prospective partners more attractive as looks, intelligence, and “easy going” nature goes up, there is a threshold for women.  Read more here
