Who complains about the mixing of male/female roles would be satisfied by Ohlala. Here the purpose is clear and stated, and there is no middle way of saying it: men pay dates to women.
The man will then sign-up, create a date, and maybe select the maximum amount of money he would like to spend. The woman is then applying to the date. If they like each other’s profiles, and if they agree over the meeting, the thing is done: everything switches to real life.
By this review, he will analyze Ohlala, one of the most talked-about dating websites available at the moment. Called “Uber for escorts” by many people, Ohlala is a huge platform, created in Germany and working in all Europe.
We will understand how it works, and if it’s the right fit for you.
Let’s dive in!
Here it is, in a few words. All about the website features is plainly explained in the website’s FAQs, so it’s a con only for those who don’t understand or like this point.
Not in all the countries escorting is legal, so a disclaimer should be made: whatever country you are living into, remember that respecting the law is more important than anything.
If you are currently dating escort or hookers, maybe you are already aware of the laws concerning this ancient job. In this review, we decline every possible responsibility for law infringement in your country.
Our purpose is just to review the functionalities of a dating website that is rapidly growing and getting under the media spotlight. Through this fair review, we will analyze its flaws, its design, audience, and powerful features.
There is no encouragement to break laws from our side. If you understand this premise, you are welcome to read on.
If you are here, you are probably looking for your dating website. According to a review, 12% of dating websites users claim that they are using more than one dating website, while 84% of them state that they only use one. The rest 4% do not want to answer the question.
So, either way, if you are looking for your dating website, you will need to understand your likes first. What are your necessities, your deepest desires? But also: how much can you tolerate a fake user? How much money do you have?
These and many other questions are constantly tormenting not only who’s a newbie, but also who has used dating websites for life, one at a time, one after the other.
Ohlala world is different: here if you are a man you post date and you say how much you are going to pay for it. While if you are a woman, you need to like the fact that a man will pay for your company. This is how Ohlala works in a few words.
The average user is a real user. The website takes reports of suspicious or fake activity very seriously, as it is a new website, and there’s a lot of talks – good and bad – about Ohlala.
So, there are slightly more males than females. Another thing we can say for sure: the target is straight people. There is no way for male escorts to sell their company as well.
The only audiences you may find here are female escorts and any kind of men who would like to pay for the pleasure of a date. If you are wondering whether you can afford to buy for the company of a girl.
Just keep in mind that there is no entrance barrier, so you will find girls who really look like professionals. As well as young girls who may have never experienced this indeed very serious business relationship.
So, if your pockets are empty but your heart is full, you may find your answers here without ending up with a huge bill.
The main features of Ohlala are different. For women: look for available dates next to you. Look for men’s profiles and buy coins. Answer to private messages or write them. For men: create dates. Look for girl’s profiles and like them. Chat with girls to discuss the details of the appointment.
Then there’s the profile part, which is usually the most important coming to the pay-for-company world. The female profile is critical, as females here are virtually the sellers.
Of course, a female can say “no” to a chat request, and she can stop the conversation with any dater who she dislikes. It’s a little complex to describe this relationship, because usually when a person sells a service, the customer is always right.
Here’s there’s a wilder environment, so here’s some advice for the guys reading this review: you won’t necessarily find an easy life. Always try to be polite, don’t judge, keep on being nice, and funny if needed.
The website is highly user-friendly, that’s for sure. You will need to get used at first to the Apple-like buttons: the “exit” button is on the left, while the “go ahead” one is usually on the right. The Web designer owned an I-Mac, as far as we can tell!
No bugs, no pop-ups and no ads, so far. Even the tokens’ prices do not display to your screen and annoy you during your stay. This is a huge pro, which is not usual among the dating websites, unfortunately.
All the website functions are displayed in the main bar. Let’s have a closer glance.
The white, pink, and grey design makes Ohlala a very light and modern app. The design is blinking to people who are already used to technology, and it’s so mobile-friendly and straightforward to use it that there’s no possible complaint to make about it.
Given its high usability, here you are the main taskbars: on the upper part of the page, the toolbar, with three icons: settings, the home page, chats. The settings will display you clearly your transactions, your coin shop, profile, account type, notifications.
Then there’s the pink eye at the top right of the page: this discreet eye will show you what another user can see when he/she clicks on your profile. There are no vast differences between men’s and women’s profiles.
There is no Android nor Apple mobile app for Ohlala, at the moment. Still, the mobile browser version is excellent, and the design is similar to Web browser one. The website is light enough and fast enough to be used on the go.
We actually don’t know if the developers are planning to create a mobile app version at the moment. Still, be careful when you look for it because apparently there is a lot of “ohlala”-called applications, both in Android and in Apple Store.
It was quite strange for us at the beginning. We were about to ask the customer support how long would it take for them to review our profile. We went looking for the “ask for help” button, and we could not find it.
So, we tried on the settings, at the bottom of the page, and finally in every single corner of the app. We were not able to find a proper Customer Service form. We thought this was because our profile was still under verification, so we waited for the profile to be completed.
Still, no customer service we could see.
There are some websites which just don’t have a Customer Support, but Ohlala was so usable, that couldn’t be! Then we found it: the thing is there’s no actual Customer Service dedicated to the users who already have a profile.
You will need to go to the first page you found after your Internet research. Then, at the very bottom of it, here we go: “contact us.” We reached the Customer Support easily, then.
Big power means significant responsibilities. As this website is so well-known and highly reviewed, it needs to grant an easy yet reliable sign up process. Type “ohlala” in your search engine and you will find it in the first results.
Go for the “sign-in” tab and select it. You will notice immediately how many newspapers are talking about Ohlala, and how many features the website offers for men and women.
The second thing you may notice is that everything looks really usable here. It looks like a huge mobile app. Brace yourself and sit down comfortably. Your Ohlala journey is about to begin.
You will be required to give some basic information about yourself. By signing in, you declare that you are aged 18 or more and that you take all the responsibilities for a fake declaration.
You will be asked to select a name or nickname, your age, and a phone number. You can skip the phone number part, but we highly recommend you to fill it. The double verification is always a safer way of signing-in to a website.
Now you’ll need to fill in some more information. It’s not compulsory, but imagine what impact would have on you, in a reliable environment, a blank description. There is a profession, body type, country, and city – which are indeed compulsory – and languages spoken.
You need to upload a profile picture that will be revised and eventually approved by the webmaster.
You will need to verify your identity by clicking to the link provided you in the mail. As soon as you receive the mail, you will be re-directed to the website.
Now you can change the details you filled in your profile to make it closer to who you really are. You will notice that your profile picture is under revision, and your profile as well. This is a further security measure. It works as a guarantee of a safe environment for the users who are already online.
To see how other users see you, go to the small pink eye on the main page. Start from here to change your profile. It always seems different when you visualize it from an external point of view.
Another verification occurs when you apply for a date: you can’t apply if you don’t put in your telephone number. That’s an extra assurance for the person who’s inviting you, or vice versa.
It’s very easy to start searching—it works pretty much as on any other dating website and you get some straightforward filters that you can use. This feature is useful when you want to search for specific names, for example.
The second step after your registration is to understand how dates work.
If you are a woman, you can look for other users’ dates on Ohlala.
You go on the “home” icon in the primary taskbar on the top of the page. A load of squared ads of people putting their dates on the website will show up. You can scroll them down until you find a date you might like. Or, you can just select “like” or “don’t like” below every date. This works like a swipe process and makes new dates appear.
By clicking on the date, the user’s profile will be disclosed for you, and you will see the person who posted the availability for the date. That’s it. Be careful and read all the details in the proposal before getting to a chat with the provider.
It’s always best to go on a trip informed and safe.
If you are a man, you will have to create your date and wait for the girls to join. It’s kind of impossible to switch roles.
Here we are with the most challenging part. How much will this cost?
Here in Ohlala you have a sort of starter pack of 25 coins. They will allow you to chat with users and to have a proper website experience.
A lot of dating websites do not offer a taste of what a paid membership might look like—and Ohlala makes no exception, but those 25 coins are useful. You just have to trust them and put in your credit card details for further things. Here in Ohlala, you have a sort of starter pack of 25 coins.
Without paying, you can’t do anything. You can just take a look at other people’s profiles and say whether you are interested in them or not. You can’t contact a person without using your coins, so in a few words: it’s up to you to decide whether you like Ohlala or not.
But if you want to enjoy your stay fully, you need to pay for coins. You will find the detailed pricing below. We suggest you check them directly on the website, as they keep on changing.
You can buy 80 coins for 10$, 245 coins for 25$, 250 for 50$. As always, the more you buy, the cheaper it turns out to be.
As you are buying tokens or coins, there’s no actual subscription you are making. So if you bought too many coins, and you would like to have them back, for whatever reason it may be, you will need to contact the Customer Support and ask them.
Go to the “Customer Support” paragraph in this review, if you want to find them at your first try.
The payments and credit card details are encrypted, and the website claims not to be selling your personal data to third parties. Of course, there’s no guarantee when you subscribe to a dating website, but we can say for sure that Ohala is a serious one.
If you are ready for the many variables of a hookup or dating website, then you can take the chance and subscribe and give your phone number and credit card number to Ohlala staff.
There are tons of dating apps online who allegedly offer dating services, but which are lumped by hookers and payers.
Like Adult Friend Finders, Instant Hookup, Xpress, and Peppr – made from the same chief executive of Ohlala, besides.
If you are straightforward and you know what you want from a relationship, Ohlala is the right app for you. It sets the time, place, and type of relationship for you. No matter who you are, you just need to say whether you are a male or a female, and how much money you would like to spend.
There’s a whole world of real people out there who won’t judge you if you would just like to pay for a girl’s time or to be paid for your own time.
If you have this mindset, then Ohlala is the right fit for you. If you still have some moral doubts, or if you are not sure you allowed to date on such an app in our country, clear your mind before subscribing.
