This app has helped me and my friends through tough times and I have grown to love it you can feel comfortable asking questions you wouldn't want to ask a therapist or your parent there are support lines and the amazing (drum roll please) WEEZY! She answers all types of questions and is very kind. There is so many people that support and help you. Now I know I'm not alone and it's great! I can be myself around others who accept you for who you are and care what you think. Every week there is Our Place Out Loud where you can ask questions and share your thoughts. Or if your feeling a little Role Play we have that too you can Role Play other users and use your own characters. What about venting? Wallowing in self pity? Cheer yourself up by telling others your problems and getting a reasonable solution. Have a major crush? Tell us how he/she treats you! A mean sister or a grumpy cousin? Find out the best way to deal with them! Group chat with other placers and make some new friends. There is so much you can do. Start a club! Begin a class! I can't even name if all haha! Some come join ourplace and make it your place too!!!!!

Ps hallmate me on the app at mellojellobuddy

Great app. Great people. Great rating.


This is app is pretty chill. The people are all really nice and supportive, and no one gets treated like crap. In OurPlace, everyone is part of the discussion. This is perfect for anyone looking for advice or anyone wanting to talk to people from all around the world. Don't be ashamed to download this app because you think you should be downloading Facebook or Twitter, because I've seen a bunch of 18 year-olds using this website. But don't get me wrong, this website isn't only for teens. There are kids on here too. You may wonder why I rated this app a 4 out of 5 if I'm saying it's so great for all ages. The only thing about this app is that you can't post pictures, which means your profile picture has to be a picture from a long list of pictures/images. Don't get me wrong, this is a good idea for people who take explicit pictures, but people should be able to capture their moments and share them with friends. Well, that's all I have to say about OurPlace. I hope my rating will help to improve this app so that a star can be added to my rating! :)

P.S. If you decide to join OurPlace, write to me in chat and I'll help you out! ;)

Absolutely Amazing!!


I have had this app for almost a year and the people on it are the nicest and most caring people you will ever interact with! I am so glad that I stumbled across this app.
The people there helped me through thick and thin. Plus all the advice I've ever gotten from Weezy (the apps' head honcho) really helped me out. I am happy to say to anyone interested in this that Our Place is a place of acceptance and kindness. There will always be a friend there for you. As the Our Place Out Loud intro song says, "you're not alone, at Our Place." And that is definitely very true!
Now for the techie part. The interface of the app is simple and understandable. You can easily adjust and adapt to using it. It rarely ever crashes. The Our Place Out Loud podcast could use some work on the live stream but overall it's really great!
This app really does deserve a five star rating! (:
