Our Time gathered a large user base over the years, made possible by its membership in People Media’s Our Time Community, which includes other elderly dating sites such as Senior People Being part of a larger network is always beneficial for a service, as proven by the thriving community found on the site.Those feeling adventurous can try the “I’m Interested” mode, a Tinder-style system where you pick ‘yay’ or ‘nay’ for a selection of chosen profiles.
After inputting some basic information such as gender, age, location (with zip code) and username, you’ll be asked to upload a profile picture, although this step can be kept for later.
Managing your online dating adventures is fairly straightforward.
The site keeps track of every interaction others have with you: when someone likes your photo, views your profile or sends a flirt, you will know exactly who that was. You can either run a custom search by setting certain filters (age, location, ethnicity, habits etc.) or rely on the recommendations delivered by the matchmaking engine.
Completing the signup only takes a minute and right after that you’ll find yourself on the main screen.
The overall design and layout is very barebones, but it works to the site’s advantage since the users – aged 50 or beyond – likely won’t be overwhelmed by features.
