Easy to Use

Facebook integration takes away some of the steps on sign-up, such as uploading a profile, which can be taken directly from the social media page. The interface makes for a positive user experience which is nice and visual without overcrowding the page of too much content. Users of Our Time can easily search for members that match precisely what they are looking for by updating their preferences (these questions also feature in the sign-up process). The free search function offers incredibly detailed filter criteria for users, where you can search based on exact details such as height, distance, and age as well other aspects, such as background, work-life, etc. This is their most attractive feature to be. Blender, Our Time’s feature that presents matches in a Tinder-esque fashion based on interests and similarities, makes for a simple way of liking others, which works in much the same way as Facebook’s poke button.

Search Functions

Searching for matches is incredibly easy, no matter how confident with technology you believe yourself to be. While users can select from a wide range of options in the search option, contacting other members is a feature reserved for premium members. Profile images are visible for members regardless of whether they have signed up to a subscription or not. You can learn a good amount from the profiles of members, both about themselves and what they are looking for as well as the number of common interests you have. Whilst browsing through your recommended matches, you are prompted to sign up for meeting activities that you can sign up to where you can meet up with other singles from the site. Considering the target audience of the website who may be more used to meeting in person as opposed to online, this is a fantastic idea, as well as giving members a safe and regulated means of meeting with someone for the first time.

Safety & Security

The site places the security and safety of its members as a priority, including features that protect your identity. ConnectMe, a feature that creates a virtual phone number for premium members, allows users to talk on the phone to potential matches without giving away any personal information, which is ideal for when you are not quite ready to pass on contact details. Our Time also features a page of advice for members to stay safe for dating online via the platform, encouraging its users to practice good habits such as only meeting in public places, never to give money if asked by another member online and giving tips on how to spot a fake profile.

Summary

Our Time is a good service for older singles to meet men and women that are at a point in their lives where they want to focus on finding romance. The search functionality makes it easy for even the least tech-savvy of users to search through the profiles of potential matches, with the offering of activities members can sign up to where they can meet up with other like-minded singles adding to the site’s offering. What really sets Our Time apart is the ConnectMe feature that generates a virtual phone number that can be used to voice calls with potential matches without giving away any private details about yourself. Members can make use of Our Time’s service with confidence that they can and will meet someone.
