WeTime: Making Real Friends in the Digital Age
Brand new friendship platform matches couples who want social life boost
Do you remember how easy it was to make friends as a child? In school, most people have no shortage of friends with which to spend time. As an adult however, time is consumed by work, chauffeuring children around and other important responsibilities. This lack of free time makes it much harder develop meaningful friendships that can last. This can make it hard to be yourself and that hole can start to take a toll.
The brand-new online friendship platform WeTime (www.wetime.be)
couples who want to give their social life a boost. You register on WeTime as a couple and complete the registration and survey together. After entering a few preferences and areas of interest, WeTime will begin searching for the perfect match for a 'double date'.
"We noticed that there really is a need for a friendship platform like WeTime", says Sietse Schelpe, the initiator of the site. "Many people have forgotten how to make friends. Or they move, and they notice that free time for their social life is quite limited. We want to give those people a helping hand through WeTime".
Schelpe continues by saying, "People with a large circle of friends and a busy social life do not need a site as ours, and for young people there are sufficient alternatives. But for couples who just want to enjoy life with each other and their children, there are few opportunities to get to know new people. With Wetime we create a safe and easily accessible environment to do fun things together. A nice dinner, an evening at a cafe, to a amusement park with the whole family are all possibilities"
The WeTime platform operates with an internal currency known as WeCoins. The free registration entitles couples to only one double date. By sharing photos or sharing about personal experiences through the platform, couples are able to gain WeCoins. These can be exchanged for fun gifts, such as hotel stays, wellness packages, discount coupons or other surprises.
Paying accounts earn more WeCoins and at a faster rate. They also have the privilege of meeting going on more dates. Members of the Gezinsbond can count on a nice discount on the WeTime subscription. Sietse Schelpe says that "The Family Association was behind our project right from the start and understands the need for Wetime. They too are looking for ways to make it more social".
