Urban Social is a stylish dating website with a variety of useful features for young professional single men and women in the UK. You don’t need to be city-based to use the site, though inevitably this is where the majority of people live and so members tend to be based in the urban areas.
Urbansocial.com has some great features that help you to promote yourself and the sort of person you’re seeking. When you first join you are invited to send out a “hello” message to all the singles in your area, which is a great way of getting some attention straight away and to give a good impression.
You can opt to become a VIP member for just £2.99 a month extra, which gives your profile more prominence to other singles searching. The advanced search feature includes numerous important aspects such as drinking and smoking habits, and other physical attributes you find most desirable. You can filter out members who don’t have pictures for example, which is good if you’re interested in seeing what the members look like.
Other issues to consider are that Urban Social does not have the option for men to search for men, or women for women. You can choose to only see members who are online, which can be a good way to make sure you’re not just scanning through abandoned profiles, but, it can be difficult to tell precisely where members are from as it only sorts by region, rather than town or city. That said, you can specify that the members you’re seeking must be within 20 miles of you for example, so you can assume they’re probably local. Customer support is difficult to come by; though there is a lot of data throughout the site, but, there is no FAQ page, so finding what you want can be a long process. You can request support through an on-site message system, though, but again it may take time to receive a response.
If you’re an ‘urban’ type of person living in London, Leeds, Manchester, Glasgow and so on and looking to date a young urban professional then ‘Urban Social’ may just be the site for you. Urban Social isn’t trying to be all things to all people; it aims for a particular age group and person and does so pretty well.
