About Uniform Dating
Uniform dating is designed to do what it says on the tin: To bring people working in the uniformed services together. This includes nurses, firemen and police officers, air stewardesses, pilots and the military; all of whom have lifestyles that require special understanding (split and night shifts, working in dangerous environments etc). In reality there are many people signed up to this service who are not members of these professions, and the site does say that it is also for people who are interested in getting together with members of these professions.
However, apart from the fancy graphics and specialist branding position, the site is a pretty standard matchmaking platform. Uniform dating has good search facilities and nice profile sections that appear to be fairly well used. Most profiles have pictures (perhaps because they have a link to facebook that makes loading pics easy) and usually people have taken the time to say a little about themselves. Uniform dating also has an instant chat service and winking and liking buttons.
Uniform Dating is a brand from the dating company Cupid thats portfolio includes such other names as Cupid.com and Lovebeginsat.com. Uniform Dating was formed in 2004 and while Cupid claims that it was set up initially in recognition of the number of relationships formed between the uniformed services, it is also likely that Cupid had the press and marketing potential of this service in mind from the get go. It certainly has received more attention in the press than its other brands in recent years and is especially effective for marketing to women. The site does look nice, with legoland style graphics to illustrate the firemen and the other uniformed hotties.
It doesn’t take long to complete the initial registration. After less than 5 minutes you should be able to have a first profile that will allow you to get going and start searching through and chatting with the other members (A complete profile will take longer, but you can attend to this after you first start using the site). Matching seems to be based principally on location. Although search by uniformed profession is also possible.
