The Short Version: Enlist in UniformDating.com to surround yourself with upstanding singles who value service in the military, law enforcement, and community. With the motto “everyone needs a hero,” this niche dating site cultivates a unique user base of 2.2 million singles, including military personnel, doctors, nurses, firefighters, police officers, and anyone who gets dressed to the nines for work. The site’s blog content facilitates dates and relationships by offering helpful tips and funny icebreakers that cater to specific professions. With a focus on hooking up heroes, UniformDating.com brings together men and women in uniform as well as those who admire them.

Katherine Tilbrook joined UniformDating.com because she was ready for a commitment, and she had her sights set on a man in uniform. When she met Army Captain Austin Hind, their initial nervousness soon blossomed into love.

“It wasn’t quite love at first sight — more fear, we think,” Katherine remembered.

Katherine and Austin got married in Quebec’s ice hotel after meeting on UniformDating.com.

One December, the couple toured the World’s Biggest TeePee in Medicine Hat, Canada. It was a frigid 18 degrees outside, but Austin’s palms were clammy. With an anxious smile, he came to a halt at the center of the teepee.

Snowflakes shone like stars in Kate’s dark hair as Austin got down on one knee. He’d chosen to propose in the snow because their first date had been a walk through the snow. Their wedding, too, adopted a winter wonderland theme.

The intimate ceremony (attended by just seven people, including Kate and Austin) took place at the Hotel de Glace — known as Quebec’s ice hotel. It was minus 5 degrees that afternoon, but the bride and groom hardly felt the cold, warmed as they were by the love they shared.

Katherine and Austin’s fairytale romance was made possible because of a truly unique niche dating site.

In the U.K., UniformDating.com helps men and women in uniform (and their admirers) find romance online. The site’s parent company, NSI Holdings, is well known for brands such as Cupid.com and MatureDating.com.
