Browser notification spam in general
We have investigated thousands of rogue sites; elitedating[.]top, wuhol.co[.]in, gkfzln[.]com – are just a couple of examples. Webpages of this kind deliver browser notifications that typically promote deceptive/malicious content.
While legitimate products and services may be encountered via these adverts – they are highly unlikely to be endorsed by their developers or other official parties. It is most probable that this promotion is performed by scammers who abuse the content's affiliate programs in order to obtain illegitimate commissions.

Sites need user permission to display browser notifications. Therefore, you have likely entered the dating4you2[.]top page and pressed "Allow", "Allow Notifications", or a similar option – thus enabling the advertisement delivery.
