Who says the elderly cannot find love? With OurTime, singles 50 year-old and above can love and be loved once again.
Registering for OurTime is free. All you need to do is to select the type of partner you are looking for - whether you’re a man looking for a woman, a woman looking for a man, or even you’re looking for a same sex partner.
Once done, you’ll then need to select the country you currently reside in, your date of birth and your email address. It’s very simple and straightforward.
Unlike many other online dating sites, OurTime requires you to add a profile photo first – at the very beginning of creating a profile. This is a pretty unique move. Though, for those who are shy or have no good profile pictures ready at hand, you needn’t worry - you could always skip this step and go back to it later.
After you’re done with your profile picture, you are then needed to write a description of yourself. You are given 1250 characters to do so, which is more than necessary to cover the basics. Do take note that you’re not supposed to write an essay here!
Furthermore, instead of a lengthy list of questionnaire, you immediately get to customize the site’s matchmaking algorithm to your preferences by picking and making your own matches (at first at least). You’ll be given a list of 10 candidates to choose from. You need to pick the ones that caught your eye by unchecking the boxes of those who didn’t make the cut.
Then, you can choose to send (or not) a flirt to the chosen candidates. The flirts are all very serious-sounding and honestly, they look more like conversation-starters than a flirt. You can choose between a few questions, such as the more extreme “Have you ever jumped out of a plane?” question, or the more casual “How’s your week going?” question.
Once you found someone interesting, you can strike up a conversation with him or her by sending them an instant message or an email.
OurTime simply looks amazing. The introductory video is very appealing, and the sign-up process is also very straightforward and simple. Navigating the website is easy as well.
It’s interesting to note that every part of the profile-building process (after registration) is optional. You may choose to skip any of the steps and go back to them later. Not to mention, OurTime is also available on mobile devices, namely Android and iOS.
Although OurTime is supposed to be free-to-use, during the time of our review, the website kind of locked us out after we skipped the “subscribe” section of the sign-up process. It seems like if you’re not a subscriber, you can’t access the site.
That said, if you plan on being a subscriber, you’ll get some pretty sweet features such as enhanced search and match options, chat by instant message, see who’s interested in you, and send and receive emails. It’s pretty much worth it.
OurTime doesn’t only understand what it’s like to be over 50 and being single, but also help the elderly to find companionship and even new love. After all, they know that people beyond 50 want something different than the “young uns’”. Not to mention, it is perhaps the only site that caters specifically to the elderly as well. So, if you’re over 50 and would like to get another shot at finding love, OurTime is your best bet! Try it today!
