Signing up for OurTime shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. With some basic questions to answer, the process is very straightforward. Users are required to submit information including a valid email address, your gender, the gender you are looking for, your education and physical features.
For those looking to receive quality matches and a meaningful dating experience, we recommend filling out as much of the optional information as possible - including the “About You” and “Just like to add” sections. These sections give singles the opportunity to share more about themselves and describe specifically what they are seeking in a partner. For example, if religion is important to you and you would like to meet someone of the same denomination, this is your chance to specify, and let other singles know.
Profiles can be completed over time, giving users another chance to add more details and information - such as punctuality and opinions on live theatre. Remember, the more you share, the more likely matches will prove compatible.
Ease of Use
OurTime is simple to use, with a clean layout and navigation. After logging in, users will see their personal dashboard. Tabs along the top of the dashboard give users access to their inbox, search functions, and suggested matches. The left hand side of the screen is home to useful information such as who liked your photo and who used a feature to “flirt” with you.
OurTime has a compatible mobile version of the site as well, keeping online dating fun and convenient.
OurTime offers a large variety of features built to match the needs of its unique 50+ community. Some of these features include communication options such as private messaging, instant chat, a “flirt” feature, audio and video messaging as well as classic SMS messaging. These chat choices allow users to be in touch with potential matches according to their own personal comfort and needs.
In addition, OurTime offers helpful dating advice and tips in an online magazine, and for those interested in help meeting people in real life, the site organises group activities.
OurTime uses a search algorithm to automatically send users five suitable matches every day. The matches are made based on the personal information provided. Singles are encouraged to use the “I’m Interested” tool to indicate which suggestions have caught their eye.
For those looking to conduct the search themselves, OurTime offers two different options. The standard search allows users to look for partners based on broad categories such as age or location. For more carefully filtered results, the advanced search narrows down criteria to topics including education, physical features, and even zodiac sign.
OurTime ensures security with regard to payments and the protection of personal data. In addition, singles can search for a partner with confidence knowing that OurTime verifies profiles. The platform offers tips on safe dating, full control over contacts and the ability to block or report other users if necessary.
OurTime is committed to helping “young people over 50” meet other singles with shared values and interests. The straightforward site offers strong security measures and a multitude of features so that online dating remains fun and simple. The person you’ve been looking for may already be waiting for you at OurTime.
