Our Time Review
Although the choices, when it comes to senior dating sites, are broad and varied, do note that the parent company of OurTime is one of the leading dating site developers. With over 20,000 members joining every day, the pool of possible candidates never runs dry.
The main advantage of this site is the specific need it addresses. All the members have to meet these criteria and must be looking for this age range. This is extremely helpful when looking for a meaningful someone to share experiences with or even just a wine tasting companion to share hobbies with. Basically, the whole database is formed by people in the 50+ age bracket wanting to meet likeminded souls. Aside from the very specific search criteria that enable easier contact with people of the same age, the website offers a plethora of success stories. There are many users that have shared their stories, that although living in proximity of each other there would not have been another way of meeting and finding love. OurTime also offers free articles which contain dating advice for this specific age group. So the complete support is offered, in order for you to achieve your relationship goals.
As well as search, you are also provided with instant matches, which become more precise as you provide the site with more information about yourself. This is a good way to view profiles you might otherwise have ignored.
Many of the members have uploaded clear photos, which is great to see as it gives you a good idea of how someone looks. They have also taken the time to write about themselves and provide all the necessary information so that you can find people based on your personal preferences.
If you’re interested in meeting the newest members, then this is possible and you can add them to a list of your favorites if you’d like to contact them again in the future.
Upgraded members gain several benefits. Primarily you can send and receive messages from members, meaning that you won’t have to have a one-way and unsatisfactory communication. You can also find out some sneaky information such as when your messages have been read or who has added you to their list of favorite members. This provides you with an opportunity to make a follow-up message in the hope that someone is interested in you.
Members can also upload videos which you can watch, and you can talk to them using a live chat feature. There’s little in the way of community features, however, and we think that improving on this with forums and message boards could really add a new dimension to this dating website.
Overall, OurTime is a solid site for seniors to find dates. However it’s not as impressive in all areas as some of its peers. Prices are fair but not fantastic, although if you do find someone who looks like your bag of biscuits then it’s well worth upgrading to get in touch with them.
