Mature lesbian singles who are looking for love have found their one stop shop. With over 2 million members, and thousands of members all over the United States, OurTime boasts an experience which celebrates finding love and romance as a senior single. Are you stepping back into the dating pool after a loss or a breakup, or simply looking for a new way to meet new women? OurTime has fantastic profile and search tools, up to date mobile functionality, and a truly fun and immersive dating experience complete with games, personality questions, daily matches and powerful search.
Once you’re signed up, the best advice would be to head straight to your profile. While there are only a few questions given at sign up, here is the place to really give the details of who you are and what you’re looking for, so that other women viewing your profile can get a great first impression. As well as uploading a few photos, make sure to answer the questions about your personality and interests. Fill in the open ended questions with some details and personality, feel free to show a sense of humor! You can also include some questions that you want other women to answer, which is a fun and addictive extra that helps you get to know your matches before you even start chatting.
If you’re happy with your profile, head to the home page to see what singles are nearby. You can browse using the search options, which also let you see who is online now and in your area. There are a couple of fun games that you can play which are fun and simple, and have the added bonus of helping OurTime work out what kind of women to suggest to you in future. These are I’m Interested, where you simply look at a large photo and mark them as Yes or No, and the connect game, where you choose one profile over another. If you prefer to sit back and let someone else do the hard work, just head to your Matches tab, which lets you know who OurTime has suggested for you.
Extras on the site include making lists of favorites, who has viewed you and who you want to get back in touch with later. You can also send online gifts, inbox messages and instant chat with women who are currently online.
Online dating must be accessible on the move, and OurTime has developed two awesome mobile apps for iOS and Android devices. They also have a fully functional mobile website, but this won’t give you extras such as real-time notifications or the ability to upload photos directly or play the swipe game.
One of the things which lesbian women like most about OurTime is how immediately it works as a lesbian dating site. The very first option you have when you join the site is what gender you are interested in, and you can immediately click Woman seeking Women. There are no options here for Bisexuals however. You will then be asked some basic information such as your age and location. Then you can choose a username and password, and enter an email address. Your messages and reminders will be sent to this email address, so make sure to enter it carefully. You will be prompted to fill in a descriptive open ended question where you can say a bit about yourself. Don’t worry, you can fill out a more in depth profile later. We really like the profile headings, which vary from social or sporty, to foodie or nerd. This a fun and easy way to see what other women are about without even reading a full profile.
As soon as you browse to OurTime, one of the first things you read even before sign up are some safety guidelines. A more in depth version of this can be found on the site itself, at the bottom of every page. Here you can learn about keeping yourself protected both on and offline when speaking to and meeting new people. As a senior dating site, this is essential, and helps people feel confident to make the move to finding romance.
You can hide your profile if you are taking a break from the site, but you can’t use the site in private mode, and you also aren’t able to verify your identity. This makes it less easy to be sure that women are who they say they are, so always take care before you give out any personal information or make an offline meet. If there are any problems, you can reach out by contact us form, and block members with a single click from every profile.
Without signing up for a full subscription, you will be limited to viewing profiles and playing the online games. You can see your matches and reach out, but you won’t be able to unlock full communication or get the most out of the site until you pay a reasonable weekly cost. I would recommend the best value deal which is under a dollar more per week, but gives much more visibility and some awesome freebies too.
1 month subscription: $7.49 per week
6 month subscription: $3.75 per week
6 month subscription: (Best Value) $4.49 per week
Tokens are an extra element of the site which costs a little extra. Using these, you can promote yourself in the search results, send online gifts, and access exclusive extras like getting a notification if a specific women signs on.
Lesbian singles don’t need to feel overwhelmed when online dating. OurTime is aimed at singles 50+ and therefore have a really easy to navigate website. Sign up is step by step and explains exactly what you need to do with tips and tricks on each page, and you will be walked through the profile build too. Everything can be found from the home screen, and although the site is busy, there isn’t an overwhelming amount of options. The FAQ section covers some of the more commonly asked questions you might have, and you can reach out by contact us form if you need any more help at any stage.
Search is a really important element of any lesbian dating experience, as you want to make sure you’re finding women you have plenty in common with. OurTime has a lot of options here. You can search with some one click options such as who is online, and who viewed you, or the last person you contacted. You can also use Keyword search to look for a specific personality trait, interest or hobby.
We’re a big fan of the regular search filters here too, which can be adapted as many times as you want to narrow down or broaden the search. Choose between physical elements like height, hair color and ethnicity, as well as what kind of relationship she is looking for, and lifestyle options such as religion, smoking, drinking and more. All of this can be confined to specific age and location too. This powerful search tool is perfect for finding exactly what you’re looking for in a woman.
Powerful search filters and innovative profile options make OurTime a winner in senior dating. 2 million monthly visitors and a one click lesbian dating option create a second to none lesbian dating experience for senior women looking for a same sex match. Highlights for us are the fun dating games and the reverse questions in each woman’s profile.
