Much has been said about this online dating scene. But I am a bit over 50 years of age and my world is caving in. I can choose to remain single, a life I have grown accustomed to in the last 5 years, or I can go out and spend the few remaining years celebrating life and the all the complications in between. Armed with thirst for love, I searched online for an online dating site of my kind.
Who is OurTime.com
OurTime.com is a growing website designed for singles 50 years of age and above. They are either divorced or their partner has recently passed away. The user interface (googled the correct technical term for it) is simple and less confusing to use. They have lots of visitors which means more options for me. I got the feeling that OurTime.com is offering me casual dates to the more serious single seniors.
How to Join
OurTime.com gave me easy instructions to sign-up. They had some form of instruction on how to fill out the form. I can fill out the form now or skip it to be completed later. I found out that I can skip the remaining sections and go ahead and look for my possible matches. But I strongly suggest that you complete the profiling questions because the answers you put there will be the basis of potential matches along with the preferences you like.
I understand that this is a paid website but I like the idea of knowing what I’m getting ito first before I pay for it. The fees were very reasonably priced at $23.99 for a whole month and $11.99 monthly for a full 6 months subscription. Cupid was a no show on the few tries and blind dates I previously had on the regular dating circle. I was pretty serious about saving my time and money and finding that rare someone I can make beautiful music with. I did 6 months with OurTime.com.
Best App Features
OurTime.com is pretty straightforward and very easy to use. You are in control of whom to send messages to. You can talk to fellow members of your choice by “flirts” or texts, video and audio messaging, and lastly video chatting. OurTime.com was guiding me on my registration process so I could create a fascinating profile to entice more people to check me out. What stood out was the gallery of pictures that each member has. They were genuinely real pictures of real people.
My Personal Site Experience
If you joined this site primarily to get laid, just leave. The profiles I have browsed thru were looking for people they could connect with, looking to communicate with and most importantly, looking for a person to share interests and values with. I saw some undesirables, but at my age, I just need to carefully remove the rotten tomatoes. I am not some prize myself, but I know that I am a genuine person in search of a genuine match here at OurTime.com. I liked the well made articles there on how start dating again.
There is no contact number listed there. There only exists a Contact Form that you need to fill out and briefly explain the kind of assistance that you need. OurTime.com does have the usual FAQ’s answering the standard questions for new members. It was like having my own personal dating coach.
I recommend OurTime.com to people over 50. They made me realize that dating online is not just for the young but its also for people of my age. I am proud of what I have become and I have a plenty good idea of why I am who I am. But it would be a more memorable experience if there was somebody I could share it wth. OurTime.com gave me that freedom and a brand new exciting chapter in my life.
