Getting started with European dating

It all starts with a personality test. This is available on our app, as well, so you can sign up today and get started. With more than 200 questions, this comprehensive questionnaire measures your levels of openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism so we can deliver matches based on your honest answers. So pour a cup of coffee, turn off notifications, and take your time answering the questions. There's no reason to waste time browsing thousands of profiles when we can easily narrow your search to the people who are most likely to be suited to you.

Nothing to be nervous about—you're not being graded. There are no "right" answers that will help you find "better" matches. The only way to find compatible matches is, to be honest about yourself and to be clear about what you're searching for in a partner. In the same way, you may enjoy their culture, they're looking to connect with Americans because they're interested in your culture. What makes you is what makes you attractive to European singles. With the information we learn from your test, we'll facilitate your search for compatible partners and get you connected with the European dating community. You'll get matched with people who are as committed to finding the right relationship as you are.

Creating your online dating profile

This is where you shine. If you take time to work on your dating profile, you're more likely to attract compatible matches. Make sure your profile is complete, free of grammatical and spelling errors, contains a variety of photos and videos and truly showcases the real you. Upload a high-quality profile picture that shows you as you are; this research indicates that a genuine smile, a slight head tilt, and the right attire can all enhance likability and attractiveness. Above all, keep your profile authentic. For EliteSingles members, the goal is to meet someone special and build a committed relationship, so you'll want your first impression to be an honest one.

To create an intriguing dating profile, note what sets you apart. Everyone loves to laugh, but what do you find funny? Everyone loves to spend time with their friends, but what do you like to do with them? How did your life experiences shape who you are today? If you're not already in Europe, consider how often you travel there or how often you would expect your partner to visit the US. In this Psychology Today article, author Randi Gunther Ph.D. writes, "These more successful, authentic dating profiles contain more visuals, evoke more emotion, and share more profound experiences."

Going on your first date

You may be a bit nervous before your first date, but there is a lot you can do to prepare to ensure you both have a great time. Choose an outfit that makes you feel both confident and comfortable. You'll want to let the conversation flow naturally but think ahead about questions you could ask if the conversation stalls. (That helps ensure you won't default to talking about your ex — 40% of people would rather avoid that topic.)

When dating a European woman for the first time, you'll have to decide upon a continent for your first date. Even though one or both of you may be traveling a long way to meet each other, the date itself doesn't have to be elaborate. Take some pressure off by keeping it simple: 83% of our members prefer to meet for coffee on the first date, anyway! Relax and have fun. Since you might be spending some time at your destination, your second date might happen the next day. If you're in Europe, let your date suggest a fun local spot; if you're in your hometown, take the lead and show off your city. If you're meeting in a neutral location where you're both visitors, choose an activity that allows you to learn more about the area together.
