Decided to add photos to my profile on the free account but when I did, the photos were tagged as pending for 2 days in a row.
The CS rep was pleasant and tried to retrieve my account but after searching several ways, she could not find any evidence of an account being set up. I did and decided to give it a shot and try the paid subscription.Immediately I began getting "flirts", photo likes and some weird messages... I then discovered the site had sent out a whole bunch of photo "likes" and posed questions from my account to other members without my consent. The site sent multiple communications to some members making me look like a stalker!Luckily I didn't sign up or provide and personal information. This online dating site automatically debit my checking for 7 months at 30 bucks a pop. It's a very spammy site with many phony profiles whose sole interest is to secure personal information. Ask questions and if they don't get you answers that satisfy you break off contact/block the person from contacting you again. In the text of profile look for inconsistencies and evidence of broken English. Prefer to be lonely/disappointed rather than to be lonely/disappointed/broke/identity compromised. Use this site as ONLY one part of your social program and include meetup groups, volunteer work, time with family friends.They do this probably to artificially inflate their "membership" numbers. I've been on other dating sites and like this site is VERY SPAMMY and many people aren't who they see. Don't give out your email/phone etc unless you've had a few exchanges with the person. Unless you're considering a long distance relationship, block or ignore those who contact you beyond your city/state. I've read many of the reviews, and from my own experience, I think this site engages in some questionable/unethical practices.Save your time and money, steer clear of Our Time.com! I filled out everything and uploaded some pictures.
I immediately was bombarded with "Likes", "Somebody favorite you" and "Messages". This morning I logged back in and discovered in the "Notification" field (on the bottom of the main site) that somebody had sent a answer to my message.I've now read here that other members have experienced the same.I also read about the automatic renewal issue and have gone in and disabled this feature and will watch my credit card. I've definitely seen strange profiles that seem to be fake with exactly the same "in a nutshell" wording but with different photos and cities.But what Our Time does not tell you is that you cannot not state that you are unable to immediately respond to messages FOR ANY REASON. "I won't be logging on for a few weeks, because I have some personal issues that I need to take of, but I promise to get back with you." If you say something like that (or anything remotely similar), your essay will get declined. After I reworded my essay it got declined for the second time, I took my pictures down and moved on. The same people are probably on there and then some.Why waste money on a third-rate website that goes out of their way to block people who are trying to be open and honest?The website advertises that you can cancel at any time and your information will be deleted.
