Dating is always scary but seniors have a much harder time finding love as they don’t really have too many chances to meet other people. Fortunately, senior dating sites have become super popular recently, allowing the elderly to make friends, go on dates, engage in meaningful relationships, and enjoy their golden years to the fullest. Read this Our Time review to find out more about the website that was designed to help seniors meet other seniors.

First Impression

Our Time is part of the PeopleMedia group, which is owned by Match.com. If you’ve not heard of Match.com then, put simply, it’s a massive community of single people who are looking for dates all over the globe. As such, you can expect a well-organized website in OurTime.com, as well as relevant and useful features for helping you find the ideal date. You will find all the information you need about this website in our comprehensive Our Time review.

Design and Functionality

We do feel we should start with a few simple but relevant traits of this site. In particular, we think it is easy to navigate this website and find whatever feature you are looking for. The search options are well considered and arranged, too.

The functionality of the website is not perfect, though. For example, the search results are not always displayed in the best way possible and you have to click “next page” over and over rather than simply being able to skip through several pages at once. You might think this isn’t that important but if you spend a lot of time performing searches on the site then you’ll become a bit bored with having to press that “next page” button to get to the people you wish to see.

As for the design, it’s almost flawless. We really liked the fact that it’s super modern, unlike so many other dating sites that cater specifically to seniors.

Features

The most significant part of this Our Time review is the ‘features’ section. The website is packed with useful features that will help you find friendship and love online. Alongside the above-mentioned search option, 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, 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 and we think that improving this with forums and message boards could really add a new dimension to this dating website.

Members

The membership base on Our Time is a solid one, with just slightly more women than men. However, you can be certain that you will find someone to talk to as everyone is more than friendly and eager to meet new people. You can chat with whoever you like and also make great friends along the way. On the other hand, if you are strictly looking for love, you will definitely get to know amazing, attractive people and arrange to go on dates with them.

Closing Word

Overall, OurTime is a solid site for seniors to find dates. Prices are fair and if you do find someone who looks like your bag of biscuits, then it’s well worth upgrading to get in touch with them. It may not be the best senior dating site out there but it is a great place to try your luck.

    Worse dating website EVER.  Forgot my password and cannot get in.  No way to reset it.  Cannot contact them – you only get their FAQ.  Email they provide is not monitored, no phone number – number I found by googling them is no longer in service.  I’ve tried repeatedly to send them emails to reset my password and don’t get a reply.  They have my $69 for 3 months and I was only able to use it for 2 weeks.  It will automatically renew because I can’t login to cancel.  I have had to stop the renewal from deducting by contacting my bank.  PLEASE DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS SITE.

    This is site is only good because of its instant match option. It matches you with a single you’re most likely to be attracted to and it works great. Sure there were some hits and misses but that’s life.

    I really don’t like that I can’t send messages unless I pay for the membership. What’s the point of browsing profiles if you can’t contact the people you like?

    I’m new to this online dating world but I really like those video chats. I don’t think I’ll be uploading one, but it’s fun to watch other people. There are many ladies here, so I’ve been having some really good conversations. I hope to meet some of them soon.  I would recommend this site to all folks in their 60s and even 70s, it really helps you break your routine.
