OurTime at a Glance

Best for: Serious relationship seekers, casual dating

Number of members: 21.5 million

Recommended age: 35-50+

Favorite features: Lara chat box & live events

Signup Process

The signup process for OurTime is simple, especially for those who may not be too internet savvy. The user dashboard is easy to use and convenient for people of all levels of tech experience, so your son or daughter doesn’t have to teach you how to use it.

You start by selecting your gender and the gender you’re looking to meet, before clicking “search now.” You’ll be asked to specify your location, select a username and password, your birthday, and your email address.

Next, you’ll start building your profile by adding a photo and writing a little something about yourself. Both of these steps can be skipped and returned to later. 

The last step before browsing singles is answering 3 questions about yourself:

  1. What’s your favorite kind of date?
  2. Which do you prefer? Morning or night?
  3. Which do you prefer? Sweet or savory?

Mark people you could be interested in from a suggested list to help the system get a sense of what you like. Once this is complete, you’ll have the chance to purchase a subscription plan. You can scroll through people’s photos and click on ones you like without having to sign up for a membership. You can also see your matches with the free plan, but without a paid membership you won't be able to communicate with anyone. 

Matchmaking & Search Functions

You can search for potential matches based on a variety of criteria including age, location, zip code, religion, marital status, zodiac sign, height, ethnicity, gender, and even blood type. This helps you find people your more likely to click with, saving you some time and effort. 

The search filter by Zodiac Sign had to be my favorite feature on the app. I’m newly into studying astrology, so finding someone who’s compatible with my Scorpio sun sign, Virgo moon sign, and Gemini rising sign is essential for me (kidding not kidding). I’ve found, however, that I’m extremely compatible with Gemini men so I punched in that filter option and found several older men who fall into that category.

OurTime also has some of the fun, swipe features made famous by Tinder. The site’s "who do you like" feature lets you flip through photos of people and save the photos you like to review later.

In addition, OurTime will notify you when other users visit your profile and let you know who they are. The site keeps track of things to help you, including who has visited your profile, flirted with you, and which profiles you have already seen.

Features & Communication Tools

To use any of the communication tools on OurTime, you’ll need to sign up for a paid membership. Once you’ve selected a membership plan, you can reach out and communicate with people in a number of ways.

On the lower right hand side of the screen there’s a live chat option where you’ll see a list of people you can talk to. When you hover over someone with the cursor, you’ll see a list of their personal traits. 

The “I’m interested” feature helps you reach out to people and show interest. OurTime presents you with photos of members and you can mark if you’re interested or not. If you mark “yes,” the person receives a “flirt.” You can also filter the results so that you’re only sent pictures of people who live in a certain area or share certain interests with you. 

OurTime also gives you the option of having a little fun and flirting with users by sending digital “gifts.” You’ll need to buy tokens to purchase gifts and flirts.

Safety & Security

OurTime provides members with extensive tips on dating safety. These include making sure that your first date is in a public place and that you let a friend or loved on know where you’re going on your date. In addition, OurTime advises to never give out sensitive, personal information to people you meet online.

The site’s privacy policy says that it collects and stores any and all personal information you enter on the website or mobile app, such as name, email, and telephone number, as well as your financial information like payment methods. It can also collect information from your social media profile if you access the site through your Facebook account. The company says it does not provide any information to third party advertisers who post on its site, but that it can retain your data even if you close your account.

I found it very interesting that the monthly membership prices on OurTime are displayed as the rates that are charged on a weekly basis. This is definitely an effective marketing tactic, because at first glance I was about to say that this was the most affordable dating app there is. However, that’s not actually the case. Great job to the sales and marketing team for that one, though! All memberships include chat and full mobile access, which is excellent for people who are just interested in casually surfing through user profiles to see who’s out there prior to throwing their hard-earned money into a paid subscription.

Because I met the man of my dreams on this website and we fell in love and are now going to move in together

Service and idea is good but customer service is lacking, they are always trying to pull more money.

Met a couple guys a lot of old timers and I am over 50 so having a hard time finding one for my age

The service is easy to use and not very costly. There are a large number of people on the site. Too many of the women are looking to get married again.

I did not have success meeting anyone real. I was approached by scammers. I did get some responses, but none that led to dates.

I have been impressed with the number of local people on OurTime and the manner in which they introduce people. I have had trouble with the website itself when I've tried to return messages or send them.

I feel that the service could be more streamlined and easier to use. The people I was paired with were all too far away.

M**y, AZ

It's very expensive to find someone to spend time with and it's hard when people buy on these websites

M**e, AL

Interesting website. People are captivating. It makes you feel excited and enthused about connecting.

R*d, NE

It had good reviews and a large following but maybe too many people are using the site to be effective

B**h, IL

I've come across some very interesting and genuine people while looking for a serious/last time love. Compared to other sites, Our Time seems to really look out for customer in finding matches and screening trolls.

J***F, TX

Website needs updating. It could be much easier to use. Filters not really representative.

K*t, TX

The one thing I don't like to give anything an excellent rating. Everything can be done better. And it's probably not rated higher because I guess nobody is interested in me

R**y, IL

There were not many quality matches in my area. I think it was a bit expensive. Also, way too many ads that get in the way.

T*m, TX

They keep changing formats making it hard to find compatible traits. The previous format was more useful.

J***s, GA

For people like me over the age of 50 . It costs a lot of money for people on a fix income.

Lots of fake profiles....Teases with the free features. Customer service could be enhanced...

K*y, AZ

Despite their advertising, I was disappointed in the pool of possible matches. I was offered people for consideration who did not live anywhere near me.

O****a, FL

There are not many men on there that I would be interested in meeting. It seems the same men are on all the time and contact me even after I have either let them know I am not interested in them if I have ignored their contacts.
