Overall Review

OurTime is one of the successful dating services for mature singles over the age of 50 years. Started in 2000, the website has become an established platform for older people to meet other personals from the same age group and develop meaningful relationships. It has a large user base, making it a very active community for senior singles.

OurTime is owned by People Media Network, which also operates other senior dating websites like SeniorsMeet and SeniorPeopleMeet. Due to this combined ownership, OurTime gets a whopping 1.4 million visits each month, probably the best in the industry. It is the fastest growing among over 50 dating websites.

Getting Started

The website is designed in such a way that the least tech-savvy seniors can navigate with ease and use all the features with comfort. Registration is free and you can use your email address to create an account on OurTime.

Profile creation is time-consuming as it allows its users to explain in detail about their personality, characteristics and lifestyle. Some basic information such as gender, relationship status and age has to be mentioned and there are default options to choose from. You can write about yourself and the type of partner you want in your own words.

Users can spruce up their profile by uploading photos, audio/video greetings and frame a set of questions for other members to answer when they message you. These features establish a friendly way to invite people to visit your page.

Find Your Mate

Seniors may find it difficult to use complex search tools and therefore, OurTime keeps it simple and straightforward for its members. It offers two types of search facilities; basic and advanced search. Basic search allows its users to search by gender, age, profiles, photos, videos and other information mentioned in the profile. Advanced search can be performed based on relationship status, date preferences, zodiac signs and religion. If you find a good match, there is a compatibility button, which helps you to compare your interests with them.

Bottom Line

OurTime is the best in the niche with its simplistic and friendly approach to dating over the age of 50. It keeps things interesting for senior singles by providing plenty of features that help them attract their perfect match. Standard members are treated fairly on OurTime as they get most of the important facilities for free. As more and more seniors are joining this website, their popularity is soaring, which can be a good sign for its members to find their special someone. The main drawback on OurTime is that they do not conduct profile screening which has led to an increase in fake profiles and scammers on this website. Anyways, finding a dating website without scammers is becoming rare these days. OurTime can be highly recommended for seniors looking for companionship.
