I'm reluctant to seem like a complainer, but my initial impression of online dating wasn't a very good one.

I had followed all the advice for making accounts and reaching out to people. But I wasn't able to get anything out of it but a few mediocre dates.

I'd been constantly told that lots of women would be eager to date with me. So, where were they?

YourTravelMates wasn't a site I had heard of before a friend recommended it. However, I was so glad he did.

This has been an amazing place for me. In this review, I'll tell you why I love YourTravelMates so much.

(Please note: This site has worked for me, but may not be a good fit for you. You'll understand if this dating website fits your needs by going through this review)

It's always good to know what a site's users are focused on. In the case of YourTravelMates, users want commitment.

This site is for people who want to create a new life with someone.

This could sound like you have to be older and/or ready for marriage as soon as possible.

While maturity and a willingness to settle down and are always good, they're by no means the only qualities necessary for using YourTravelMates.

Just be sure you're not just looking for something like a one-night stand.

Creating a YourTravelMates account is a lot of fun. It's also done pretty quickly.

Filling out your account shouldn't take much longer than about 15 minutes.

You'll include information about yourself and the kind of person you want to me. You'll also have to create your own username.

Choose one that stands out in good ways and doesn't harm your privacy.


Profiles

  • No cost for checking out profiles
  • Can include a lot of profile information
  • Not everyone completes their profiles

Creating a YourTravelMates profile can feel a little like an inquisition, but the questions have a purpose. 

They want to pair you with the right matches. Take your time with your profile and understand that it's all worth it.

Looking at other profiles will help you see the importance of a complete profile.

It's far easier to get excited about someone when they have a lot of information on their profile.

Get yourself in the upper echelon of YourTravelMates members with a great account.


Making Contact

  • Need to purchase credits to send messages
  • Email other members
  • Send gifts to other members and stand out

You can't just throw together a YourTravelMates profile and expect matches to start falling at your feet. 

You need to make the most of the search and contact features. Showing initiative makes things easier for everyone.

YourTravelMates has a very good traditional messaging feature. There's also an excellent video messaging method.

You can use these in tandem to enjoy the best possible communication between you and your matches.


Your Travel Mates Costs & Prices

To really get the most out of YourTravelMates, you'll need to spend money. The site uses a credit system, where you buy various quantities of credits.

You can get 20 credits for 15 cents a credit, 160 credits for 60 cents a credit, and 1,000 credits for 40 cents a credit.

Keep true to yourself in terms of what you want and expect. If you think that you'll be able to find someone after only a few days, 20 credits could be just fine.

However, if you want to stretch your search out longer and have the funds to do so, you could try to go for 1,000.


Pros and Cons

Pros

  • Has helped many singles find companions who love travel
  • Easy to use platform
  • Information is kept safe
  • Lack of fake profiles
  • Don't have to worry about users outside of your age range

Cons

  • There is no matching algorithm. Need to search yourself
  • Can't have a monthly subscription

The Bottom Line:

YourTravelMates is an exciting site that has like minded individuals seeking a companion they can relate to and travel with.

Although you can sign up for free and browse profiles first, buying credits was one of the most excellent decisions I made when signing up for YourTravelMates. 

Now is the time for you to stop worrying about whether they'll find you and to start putting your focus towards finding them.

It's a journey you'll be glad you undertook.
