OurTime is an online dating site with many free features such as browsing profiles and sending “flirts”. OurTime is designed towards the dating needs of singles that are 50 and over. As the years pass, your dating intentions, relationship goals and the characteristics you look for in a partner typically change. For most people in their twenties, hookups and casual relationships are the goal. But for the 50 and above crowd, many are looking for someone that will offer companionship and a long-term commitment. OurTime has a homepage that uses a deep purple color scheme and showcases photos of their users. If you are interested in meeting thousands of singles in their 50’s or older that are seeking friendship, dating or a long-term relationship, try OurTime.

Packages and Features

Unlike some of the more mainstream dating sites, OurTime offers a solitary premium plan which allows singles to take advantage of all of the features offered. The service also offers a free plan which provides limited services but enables users to get a good feel for the service. For an additional fee OurTime users can also opt to have their profile highlighted in the search results, a feature that is designed to help bring users to the forefront of relevant searches. This is only available as an upgrade for premium members, though it only cost a dollar more per month, and will make your profile even more visible.

How OurTime Works

Your first step in becoming an OurTime user is to build a dating profile. OurTime will ask you for your location, body type, eye color, relationship status, pets, ethnicity, occupation and smoking preference. Then you can answer personality questions such as “How patient do you consider yourself?”, “Are you romantic?” and “How much do you like reading?” You can also add your interests to your profile and upload a profile photo.

The next step will ask you to write a brief summary about yourself. You can write about the person you want to meet, the things you like to do and the reasons you love being 50 and above. This is your chance to write about the unique things about you.These fun facts will increase the chances of users contacting you because they want to learn more about you.

When you have completed your profile, you can move on to search for your perfect match. You can search through profiles by selecting filters like ethnicity, smoking preference, build, religion, height and zodiac. A quicker way to search is to run an instant search such as Who’s Online Now? Today’s Birthdays, Username and Keyword. Once you find a user that is attractive, you can add them to your Save list and send a virtual flirt. With a basic subscription, you will not be able to send a personal message.

Another way that you can locate a possible match is through the Carousel feature. With each user, you will need to decide whether you are interested in meeting them or not. OurTime also has a Daily Match carousel feature, which shows you users that OurTime thinks would make a good match for you based on the details in your profile. Once again, you get to decide whether you think each user is a possible match.

If you want to draw attention to your profile, you can purchase gold tokens. This currency can be used to buy the Rush Hour perk which will boost your popularity by placing your profile at the top of search results during times when traffic is heavy on the site.

Customer Support

There are two main ways to find answers to questions about OurTime. The fastest way is to search the company's FAQ section, or to use the search button in the help section if you have a specific question. We tested the search feature and found that it did provide helpful and relevant responses to our queries for basic searches and worked quickly every single time.

Singles who can't find answers in the FAQ section can contact the company via an on-site form submission. Before submitting the question users will be directed to potential answers to their questions which seem to be based upon trigger words from the email. Members who don't locate their answers in this form may of course still opt to submit the question for a personalized answer from the customer service team.

Overview

OurTime is a solid niche online dating website that attracts precisely the users it seeks, but also features many profiles of users outside of its target audience. Though the site lacks many of the bells and whistles offered by other dating sites, it does provide a straightforward user experience and excellent search features to help maximize user's odds of success. The website also provides more ways to interact with matches than a typical dating site, meaning that there is always fun to be had with this unique online site.

  •   Excellent searching features
  •   Ability to create profiles with video and audio
  •   Targeted audience serves 50+ singles very well

Used this site in 2012-2013. Was almost ready to let membership lapse and move to Rochester to live near kids & grand kids. But I had met more men here than any other site..so kept going a few more weeks. Then HE happened. We met November 5, 2012...we both knew it was right. We were engaged Jan 2013 and married June 15th 2013. Kids asked why so fast..we said at our age we needed all the time God would give us. It has been a joyous ride.

Nice site, easy to use, only it stats that it's for 50 and up but there are younger people on it, I don't like that they let the others know when you look at their profile

Submitted by Debbie

I met several very nice men and dated, but have met "THE ONE" on another website.

Submitted by liz

It's a great site and I met the most wonderful guy. We are going on 9 months.

While parts of this system are annoying (don't do the 'choosing game' they offer: it leads to 'liking' pictures that results in a plethora of responses), the staff and system are better than others

Getting married on Saturday to the man I met through ourtime

Submitted by Essie Revis

I was repeatedly matched with the same individuals over and over. I was matched with several people whom I had blocked. I was matched with several individuals who I reported as catfish/cons. I never had technical problems resolved after repeatedly contacting customer service. I doubt they even have a tech department.

Submitted by Phil F
