Academic Singles All reviews, opinions and experiences

Dating, but not only for college students

Academic Singles is presented as a dating site for college students who are looking for serious acquaintances with similarly educated counterparts. But don't be discouraged by this initial information, as people of all ages and everyone, regardless of education, can register for it. On this site you can easily find appropriate matches to communicate with. Normally the people who register are hoping for a serious relationship and longterm love. No gender is discriminated against and it is pleasant that there are roughly the same number of men and women. Everyone is registered for free at Academic Singles and it is up to you if you wish to pay for a VIP account.

Registration to Academic Singles takes only a few minutes

So you’re not an Internet whizz kid? Don’t worry. Academic Singles will show you step by step how to create an account. Fill in the information truthfully so that the dating site can find suitable matches. This eliminates the tedious browsing of individual profiles. Recommended matches will be generated based on your information. And who wouldn’t want to know who suits them best from all registered members?

Make yourself comfortable and fill out your profile

After registration you will be prompted to upload your profile photo. This should correspond to reality and should be taken in recent times. You can add your best photos to be viewed.

Under your profile photo you can check to see if users see your photos clearly or if they are blurry. You can then choose to make your photos available to the people you consider appropriate. After uploading your photos you will complete a personality test, highlighting your goals, opinions and lifestyle.

Premium Academic Singles Membership: Yes or No?

After uploading your photos and completing all the information you will find that you cannot use all of the dating features. However, you have the option to subscribe to the Premium Membership for a better experience. You can pay membership for one month, half a year or year. After this time, membership is automatically renewed and you can enjoy all the benefits of dating. With Premium, when you login you can receive and send messages, see who has visited your profile, and view photos of other users. In addition, you can create an online directory with your favourite contacts.

What to do if you want to cancel an Academic Singles account?

You can cancel the user account directly in your profile under the "Settings" tab, where "Deactivate Profile" appears. You can only apply this procedure if you have not activated the Premium Membership. To terminate your VIP account, you must terminate your membership no later than 14 calendar days before the end of the relevant period. You can send your self-signed notice by post or fax to the company address or you can use the link on the dating site.

And finally, my opinion on Academic Singles

Eliska Kolarova

If you are looking for men or women, you will find them at Academic Singles. After all, premium membership is usually paid for by people who are serious about getting acquainted with others and have a permanent job. Please read the General Terms and Conditions before registering so that you will not be surprised by the automatic extension of the VIP membership. The overall design of the site is of a high standard and the user interface is friendly and enjoyable. Despite some negative Academic singles reviews, we strongly recommend this site as it does not hide anything from you and has clear rules. Anyone who is looking for the love of their life has a great chance of meeting them here.

Brighton, 38 years old

A few weeks ago my boyfriend proposed and we are getting married next spring. After 3 months on Academic singles and five dates in I met Brian. The first few dates were okay but didn’t lead to more than a few nice evenings out and I was beginning to feel doubtful that I would meet my perfect partner. When Brian walked into the restaurant however that all changed. We are both secondary school teachers and had a lot to chat about from the get go. I am so grateful to Academic singles for helping me to find the perfect man.

I was bored having to search through so many unsuitable profiles on other sites, but with Academic Singles it was different. My matches actually ticked my boxes, I got messages from people that I wanted to meet because they matched me and my interests.

Yes 8 No 3
Paul, 56 years old

I hadn't been a Premium Member for long when I connected with someone and even though we lived in different cities, because we got on so well we decided to meet up and really hit it off. It doesn't matter where you live when you meet your love. My only issue with Academic Singles was when I tried to deactivate my account. I had to send a letter to do so as they won’t allow you to cancel online. They should really do something about this.

Yes 7 No 6
Jackie, 51 years old

We met last year on Academic Singles. As an older lady I wasn't sure what to expect about online dating, but because we were matched on our education and interests it was very easy to chat. After some time we agreed to meet and we couldn't have got on better. We took it slowly but it was worth the wait and we know we've found real love.
