Our Review

Fairly new to United Kingdom’s dating scene, Our Time is an online dating platform that specifically caters to singles over 50 years of age. Owned and operated by Match Group, Our Time is set to be one of the leading senior dating sites in the country, even if it was only recently launched. Its concentrated member base has grown to over 150,000 active users. Its US counterpart of the same name, owned and operated by People Media, has been equally successful. However, the two Our Time dating sites cater to two different location niches and does not offer the same features.

Read the full review below to find out how Our Time UK differs from its US version.

  • Members must be 50 years old and above
  • Majority of members are from the United Kingdom
  • High number of active members
  • Members are usually looking for friends or another chance at love
  • There are very few fake profiles

Majority of Our Time members resides in the United Kingdom and some other countries near it, such as France and Ireland. In fact, you will have a hard time signing up as a member of the website if your internet server does not come from these three countries. There is an Our Time US counterpart that serves all other countries, if you wish to sign-up, and if you are from another country other than those mentioned above.

Most of Our Time members are either single or divorcees, who are looking to have another chance to find love. The members really take their time in filling out their profiles as most of them are serious in finding a match. Many of these active users attend physical events called "Activities" which are organised by the dating site. There have been many success stories from the attendees of these "Activities", as well as from using Our Time’s online dating platform.

  • You will be asked about your basic personal information
  • Gay share is available

Signing up for an account in Our Time is a quick and easy process. The process is interactive—the concept is that you are talking to your “OurTime Coach” who will be guiding you step-by-step throughout the registration. The first thing she will ask you is about your sexual preference. This is followed by your birthday, city, and gender. You will also have to provide your first name, email address, and password. Also, Our Time values their partners and where their traffic comes from, so they will ask you how you got to know their website. There is a list of choices starting from referrals to press articles.

After successfully signing up, you will be required to answer some more personal information about your appearance, status, and lifestyle. You will also be asked about the ideal partner you are looking for to help Our Time tailor your matches to your specific criteria.

Making Contact

Our Time Blendr
  • Sending winks is free
  • Messaging is a paid feature
  • You can add members that you like to your ‘Favourites’ list
  • Roulette-type matching is available
  • Advanced search criteria is free to use

Our Time gives its standard users a chance to interact and connect with other members. They are able to send winks, add users to their ‘Favourites’ list, and use the ‘Blendr’ feature. ‘Blendr’ is a roulette-type of matchmaking where profile summaries of other members are presented to you one-by-one. This special feature asks if you like the profile you see, in which you can either answer with a click of a ‘Yes’ or ’No’. When you hit ‘Yes’, that particular profile will automatically belong to your ‘Favourites’ list, and will notify the member that you liked. You are able to view and consider 100 profiles using Blendr every day.

Even with these free features, only paying members are able to see if ever they got mutual likes and winks. Reading and sending messages is also a paid feature, and Our Time does not offer any alternative add-on purchases for you to view them.

Profile Quality

OurTime Profile
  • You can view a preview of a member’s profile
  • Profiles display your common interests with other users
  • Profiles are reviewed before they go live
  • All photo uploads undergo an approval process
  • Profile photos are visible to everyone

    Profiles on Our Time feature a lot of detail about the members, considering that they must disclose all the information that is asked from them during registration. However, all questions about a member’s personal information are optional to answer.

    All profile information is organised in section boxes on every member’s profile. The boxes are labelled depending on the type of personal information. The sections are labelled as ‘Personality’, ‘Body Type’, ‘My Lifestyle’, and ‘My Passions’. The ‘My Passions’ section has a slider where categories are displayed such as ‘Hobbies’, ‘Interests’, ‘Sports’, ‘Music Taste’, and ’Favourite Films’.

    When you want to look at another member’s profile through the ‘Search’ and ‘Discover’ tabs, you can view a summary of that member’s profile. This preview appears on an on-site pop-up window where the profile photo is displayed, along with that member’s name, age, location, height, and personally written introduction paragraph. Two action buttons—‘Send a wink’ and ‘Add to favourites’—are also easily accessible on this preview.

    Real Life Review

    “As a widowed man at my late 50s, I thought it was too late for me to find another partner that I could possibly share the rest of my life with. I lost my wife during my 30s and never thought I’d find love again until my grandchildren decided to make an Our Time account for me, and set me up on dates. I found my beautiful second wife through the site after three months of browsing profiles. I met her at an Activity in the city, and we hit it off from there. We got married a couple of months later and I couldn’t be happier where I am today.” - Shaun, 59, Bedford

    Design and Usability

    Our Time was designed to give a pleasant user experience to its senior members. All special features can be easily found on the main header menu, while contacting features are effortlessly accessible in all opportunities of interaction. All the important texts on the website, such as the names of members and menu tabs are in big and bold letters. The profiles are organised well in section boxes for a more seamless read. In terms of appearance, the minimalist design of Our Time’s website is attractive and engaging. It would surely make any user’s time on the site enjoyable.
