Do you lead a busy life? Many Canadians do. If you belong to the people who wear a uniform to work, such as police officers, nurses, soldiers, doctors, firemen and pilots, you might find yourself busier than most. On top of which you might be on call 24/7 many weeks, or have to travel a lot. That’s why we set up UniformDating.com - to enable people in uniform to find likeminded people who understand the demands of their work.
Another wonderful thing with online dating and chat rooms is that you can meet someone from anywhere. Even if you’re away in business you can schedule a date for when you’re coming home. And if you have a minute at work you can log into one of our online chat rooms and have a word with someone. There’s no need to spend your weekends in bars looking for love - use that time to socialize for fun instead!
Using a singles chat and an online dating site in general is just simply convenient!
Maybe back in the day chat rooms were for people too scared to meet up in a bar, but today they are convenient places for meeting singles. Have a look at the stats - about 20-30% meet their boyfriend/girlfriend online. It’s convenient because it gathers all the singles in one place (not everyone in a bar is single) and you can easily find people with similar interests.
As mentioned previously it’s also convenient because even if you travel you can use online dating to meet someone and arrange a date for when you get home.
When you chat with singles online it’s really just a simple way to gauge their personality a little bit better before you agree to meet up in real life. You figure out pretty quickly if you think there’s a chance you’ll get on in the real world!
Avoid getting stuck to speaking in an online chat room though - you will want to schedule a real date as soon as you’ve established there’s online chemistry. It’s the real world that counts, after all!
For some reason there’s a stubborn rumour that using an online chat room isn’t safe. It’s very safe.
Unlike places like Facebook and LinkedIn where you’re likely to list where you work, or live, on an online dating profile you wouldn’t do that. Which means unless you give away such information when you chat, you’re safe. We do a lot of work to ensure that UniformDating’s chat rooms aren’t hackable. It’s as safe as using any online site that uses good security.
Of course, you have to refrain from giving out personal information like addresses to work and home, as well as credit card details. And once you meet up with someone, take your time to get to know them in public before you see them in private. That really should be the case with people you meet in a bar as well. It takes time to get to know people, especially if your judgment is clouded by your attraction for them. (And if you don’t feel attracted to someone on a first date, give them a second go too - our perception of people change as we get to know them better, as do our attraction levels).
