Love and friendship know no walls – such is the premise of Prison Dating, one of the fastest-growing unique dating websites in the UK. It’s a place where adults looking for partnership, companionship, and friendship including prisoners can interact.
The registration process is simple and easy. Initially, it is composed of four short steps. It asks you what kind of date you’re looking for, birthday, e-mail address, and location. The challenge here is whether you can register successfully right away. Perhaps due to the influx of members and registrants, you may have to wait a week before you can sign up again. By this time, you need to redo the entire process. Although it is not tedious or time-consuming, it can be frustrating.
The website will send you a username and password to sign in before you can access your profile completely. The profile looks bare at the beginning, which is understandable since the website didn’t ask you many questions during the registration. In it, you can list down your interest, inmate preferences, appearance, personality, views on life, education and employment, leisure and fun, and “situation.” Under situation, you can indicate whether you’re willing to relocate, living arrangements, housing, or transport. You can then upload photos and videos.
Prison Dating instantly matches you with members who are about your age and near your location. The images will also include a glowing green dot, which should tell you they are online and thus ready for a chat. If you want to narrow your search, there’s a tiny Quick Search option on the right-hand side, where you can customize the person you’re looking for and the age range. You can also let the system give you profiles with photos only. You also have the chance to browse members according to who’s new and recent activity. If you wish to refine your search further to interests and screen name, you need to upgrade your account from basic to VIP.
The website offers standard communication options: e-mail and chat. The chat area can be public or private. In public, your message will be seen by everyone. If you wish to make the conversation private, click on the member’s photo to direct you to a specific window. Note, though, in the basic or free membership, you can receive but not reply to messages. You also cannot chat privately.
Prison Dating is easy to use. Menus are easy to find while the pages are comfortable to navigate. You won’t have problems customizing your profile and searches as the site is responsive. The images appear large or at least medium sized on screen. Perhaps the minor issue are the ads, although they are found in certain places and do not reduce your viewing experience of the website.
The website has Facebook-inspired features, such as Like (the icon of which is eerily similar to that of Facebook) and Friend Request. You can also block or report members. There’s also the Flirt section, where you can send one-liners that are humorous, passionate, or expressive. They may also be ice breakers.
Prison Dating has four kinds of membership plans namely 5 Day Trial (less than £1 a day), 1 Month (£10 a month), 3 Months (£5 a month), and 1 Year (£3 a month). As expected, the one-year subscription gives the best value for money. You can pay through any major credit cards. As to the features for each of these plans, the website doesn’t say. There’s a good chance you can access all the tools of the website whether you’re paying for a 5-Day Trial or a 1-year subscription.
Despite the website’s concept, Prison Dating feels safe and comfortable to be part of. For those in prison, it gives them a sense of hope they can still find love. For those outside, it means broadening one’s insight and providing comfort to inmates. It’s a unique place daters should seriously consider.
