Dating in Orlando, FL
Many Orlando singles have UniformDating to thank for finding dates. What to do next though? You have to come up with great date ideas, which can be a hassle. Whilst Orlando dating has a lot to offer, it’s only easy to be blinded to it when living in the city. You start taking things for granted and unlike tourists you are not scouring the local newspapers to see what’s going on. Turns out you can learn a lot from the tourists. Whilst you definitively should be scouring the papers to find out what events are happening right now, we’ve decided to help you with some date ideas too. Things that are usually always available (though some are seasonal). After all, there’s more to dating in Orlando than current events. And we looked into some great first dates as well - bars and cocktail lounges where you can feel at ease meeting someone for the first time (which it will be if you met online.)
Orlando Dating: Great First Dates
If you belong to the Orlando singles who met someone through an online dating site, your first date will look a bit different to a first date where you already know someone. It’s a sort of trial date where you find out if there’s chemistry so you want to keep it simple and relaxed. Dates in Orlando that cater to this include places where you can grab a good coffee, a relaxing glass of wine, or a nice cocktail. So without further ado, here are some Orlando date ideas for your first date.
- The Imperial Wine Bar and Beer Garden. Because you have to experience a wine bar inside a furniture store at least once.
- NV Art Bar. It has a rooftop. Need we say more? Oh yes, we do. You need to know the password to get into this section of the bar, also known as Hanson’s Show Repair. We suggest you do your online research properly.
- Uptown Park Wine Bar. Small and intimate.
- The Matador. Kooky and cool cocktail bar.
- The Courtesy. Cozy and perfectly dimly lit. Just watch out as it gets packed at times.

Online Dating Chat Rooms in Orlando
Gone are the days when chat rooms were for computer wizards who preferred the online world to real life socializing. Today chat rooms are being used by many businesses to speak with clients, you can chat on almost any major social network and they are popular forums on online dating sites.
What makes chat rooms so great for online dating is the ability to speak with someone without having to give out phone numbers or social media information. A lot of our members are in the police force or work in the medical field as doctors, psychologists and dentists, so they take privacy seriously.
Once you’ve had a feel for whether you like chatting to someone, you obviously have to take the next step and call them to schedule a date though. Incessant chatting that doesn’t lead anywhere is a sign someone isn’t ready for dating. We always encourage members to meet up as soon as they feel comfortable with it, because nothing beats a face to face meeting!
Using Chat Rooms for Dating in Orlando
Chat rooms had a bad rep back in the day as people used them to hide their real identity. Many people who felt awkward socializing in real life, rather than conquering their fears, found chat rooms to be a social outlet. Today it’s very different. Most businesses and social media networks use chat rooms as they are a safe place for people to interact.
When it comes to online dating, it’s a great place for people to start talking to each other before deciding to swap numbers. Whilst it will only give you a glimpse of someone’s personality, it will definitively give you an ability to check if the conversation flows easily.
Chat rooms are meant to be for first conversations (as opposed to chatting forever without meeting up), or for further conversations after meeting if it’s more convenient than a phone call. Some of our members, like air hostesses, marines and soldiers travel a lot, so for them it’s often more convenient than a phone call when abroad.
Chat Rooms for Singles in Orlando
Ever wondered why online dating sites offer chat rooms? Is it for members to be able to “hide” online whilst talking to each other? Nope. It’s simply a way for members to have a first conversation with each other before swapping numbers. Some people feel more comfortable gauging someone’s personality online before giving out a phone number or social media details.
It makes sense to be cautious handing out your number or social media details - many of our members work in professions that require secrecy, like the military, police force and navy. Of course, once you’ve had a feel for if you have something in common with someone you do need to meet face to face though.
We always advice members to meet someone as soon as they feel comfortable with it, so as to determine if there’s real life chemistry. After all, you don’t want to be wasting your time.
