The upload of a photo to your profile is completely optional. Your photo will only be visible to your matches who have purchased a Premium membership.
EliteSingles does not wish to pressure members into adding a photo to their profile. However, if you have a profile photo, not only are you up to 8 times more likely to be contacted by your matches, but it also shows your commitment and interest in finding a partner. If your profile has a photo, you are more likely to attract profile visitors, and are therefore more likely to leave a positive and lasting impression!
We therefore do recommend uploading at least 1 good quality, colour photo, although you can actually upload up to 24 photos to your profile.
Matching starts as soon as you finish the personality test. That way you can take your time to decide if EliteSingles is the service for you. When you feel comfortable enough to upload your photo, you can do so easily via your profile.
