Our Time Review 2020
Is Our Time a reliable dating site?
Our Time is a website focusing exclusively on dating for people over 50 years old. It’s easy to use and very safe; the site verifies each user profile and photos to make sure you’re dating safely. You can also blacklist contacts you don’t want to hear from. Our Time is a really good place to start if you’d like to create new friendly or romantic relationships. Indeed, as an Our Time member you’ll be able to join singles events such as cooking or quizzes nights and meet people without the added pressure of going on a date. Once registered on the site, Our Time virtual coach is here to answer your questions and guide you through the online dating process. It is definitely a site we recommend to people over 50.
Memberships & pricing
You can register on Our Time for free. It’s a good way to understand how the website works before signing up for a paid membership. The following features are available for free:
- Create a profile
- ‘Like’ your favourite profiles
- Personalise your searches
- Receive emails
- Send limited messages
If you want to enjoy more features on Our Time, you’ll need to subscribe to a paid membership. You’ll probably want to subscribe as it’s frustrating not to be able to converse with someone you’d like to meet. There are three packages available: 1 month, 3 months and 6 months. Once you have selected your subscription period, you can add one or more upgrades. The Connect upgrade lets non-subscribed members read your messages and write to you. The Select upgrade lets you activate the Contact Filter and also see if and when your messages have been read. With a paid membership, you’ll be able to send and receive unlimited emails, view other people profiles photos and also get email notifications. You can pay by credit card or Paypal. If you want to unsubscribe, it’s important to know that auto-billing is automatic on Our Time and will renew your membership for the same length of time. You’ll need to cancel from your profile in settings/manage subscription or by emailing customer support. Don’t forget to do it ahead of the end of your subscription. Our Time memberships are cheaper than their competitor Silver Singles.
You can sign up to Our Time quite easily with your email address. Don’t worry about being comfortable with a laptop, the website is relatively easy to use and no one will need to help you to complete your profile. Firstly, you’ll need to select which gender you’re interested in, and then fill in your username, password, birth date, email address and profile photo. You’ll also need to write a description about yourself on your profile.
Our Time will then ask you three questions to help match you with other singles:
What’s your favorite kind of date?
Which do you prefer? Morning or night?
Which do you prefer? Sweet or savory?
Once this complete, you’ll have the option to buy a paid membership, or continue for free. You can then start looking at other people profiles!
Our Time strongly focuses on safety. All profiles are manually verified by Our Time’s moderation team upon completion, and inappropriate profiles are deleted. You also have full control over your contacts on the website.
There is a ‘Blacklist’ function allowing you to block an annoying member from contacting you. The ‘unavailable mode’ allows you to search other profiles without being detected. It means that no one can see you’re online which will prevent people to try and contact you, so you can look at profiles in peace. However you need to pay extra money for this function.
There is also a ‘Contact Filter’ which allows you to choose who can contact you by selecting which criteria matter to you (with a photo, age, etc.).
Contacting Other Members
The site has some fun functionalities such as ‘who do you like’, allowing you to swipe photos of other potential matches on your screen and decide whether you like them or not. The site keeps track of everything you do, to help you remember which profiles you liked or didn’t liked, and who you discussed with. In addition, Our Time will notify you when other users visit your profile and let you know who they are.
Our Time displays advanced profile search filters, which can help you select profiles you’re more likely to match with. You can for instance filter profiles by age, location, zip code, religion, marital status, zodiac sign, height, ethnicity and gender.
Our Time is only available through email support which can be annoying if you have an urgent matter or a technical problem. You’ll have to fill their online form available here. They usually respond within 48h.
The Bottom Line
Our Time is a safe, reliable dating site, that you’ll certainly enjoy if you’re over 50 years old. We love the advanced search feature and all the options the site offers to interact with other members. However these options can be slightly overwhelming at first if you’re not familiar with this kind of features. Our tip, take your time to complete your profile and familiarise with the website before starting contacting anyone. Start by looking at the advanced search feature and look at other profiles. The cons, Our Time ask members to pay extra for additional features such as the ‘unavailable mode’. However these features are interesting and worth paying for. Also try to attend the singles events that are great to make new connections.
