Takes 2 minutes to create a profile to find your perfect match. The site’s layout is incredibly simple and easy to get around.
OurTime is a dating site dedicated to the over 50’s. A subsidiary of Match.com, it is booming in popularity with around 1.5 million active members logging on per month. As a site that is catering to a target audience, is it worth your time to sign up here, or would you be better off sticking with mainstream sites?
The sign-up process is fast and straightforward. The initial stage is to enter your sexual orientation, plus that of who you are looking for. Next comes date of birth, country, Zip/Postal code, e-mail address and password.
After logging in for the first time you will be invited to complete a short bio and upload a picture. You can though skip this stage now and have a look around the site first. Do note though that your profile won’t be visible to anyone else until you upload at least one photograph. You will also need to complete the personality tests and questions that are designed to provide the background software algorithms with the details it needs to bring you the most accurate profile matches every day.
The good thing is that you can tackle all of this at your own pace, and have a good look around before deciding to invest the time.
Simply superb. As a site that has been developed from the ground up for seniors, care has clearly been put into making the process as seamless and straightforward as possible. For instance, the profile hub page not as cluttered in comparison to other sites, and all the options you need to use are properly and clearly labeled.
As a subsidiary of Match, OurTime shares a lot of similarities with the layout of that site. If you’ve ever been a member of Match, you should be able to find your way around easily. Even if you haven’t, a lot of care has been put into making the experience as easy as possible for new users.
OurTime has all the usual encryptions to protect your data, as well as a number of features to protect you as a dater. There is a vast resource of information on the site about staying safe whilst internet dating, all of which are worth reading. Troublesome profiles can also be reported easily to admin for rapid and effective assistance.
OurTime’s prices are decent and affordable. Moreover, if you sign up for longer periods, you will see discounts applied, such as the three-month membership as opposed to the monthly subscription.

If you want a dating site that caters to a more senior market whilst itself staying fresh and modern then OurTime is the obvious choice here. It’s a very well-crafted site (as you would expect from an offshoot of Match.com) that is both a pleasure to use and very effective. The background algorithm will bring you quality matches, whilst the in-depth search features allow you to put your dating game on the front foot.
