Uniform Dating is an online dating site that’s designed to help busy uniformed workers find the time to look for love. This site was acquired in 2012 by Cupid plc.
They understand that doctors, nurses, firemen -- and other uniformed professionals -- don’t often find the time to date, so the aim is to make it easier for them through Uniform Dating.
The website it quick and easy to use, saving time, and the membership base is made up of uniformed workers and people who are interested in them.
It’s most popular with women, but its members are either uninformed workers or people looking to find someone in uniform to date.
- Members: 135,000 members so far in the UK -- and growing. There are around 2 million members worldwide.
- Member activity: Members receive on average 22 winks and flirt-casts a month.
- Gender proportion: 40% Male and 60% Female
How the Uniform Dating Site Works
You mostly search through the site on your own times, browsing through profiles and making communication with the people you like the look of.
You don’t take any questionnaires or get sent matches, but there is a matching feature that shows you profiles you can say yes, no or maybe to.
Sign up process
It only takes a minute to register. Every section can be skipped and come back to later, but you can upload a photo straight away and give information about your appearance, income and education. There’s a status box too, which allows you to share what you’re thinking with other members. You can also add a video to your profile to share more about yourself.
Ease of use
The website is very intuitive and easy to use. Nearby profiles get shown on your homepage, so you don’t have to look far to start messaging people. There is a clear toolbar with obvious icons that show you exactly what you’re clicking on, all of which leads to a friendly user experience.
Chat, messages and notifications
After registering, you can message members straight away. You’ll need to upgrade to get the full messaging service, but you can send winks and flirtcasts to people you like the look of without having to send a message. Free members get five free chats a day, so make it count.
Profile quality is quite mixed. Free members can only see small photos -- you have to upgrade to see larger images. And a lot of profiles don’t seem to share much information, instead you have to ask for it. The moderation team do approve profiles though, so you shouldn’t find too many fakes.
Uniform Dating App
The Uniform Dating app is only available to download on iPhone from the App Store. You can access all the same features as on the desktop site but the user experience is really clean and compact. You can see images and information clearly, with a great toolbar at the bottom of the page to get you where you need to be quickly.
Real life reviews
I’ve met the love of my life & have never been so happy! I joined UniformDating as I realised there was a big hole in my life. I was looking for love but never really expecting too much. After a couple of false starts I met the most wonderful man. We are now dating & planning our lives together. Thank you UniformDating
