OurTime and SeniorSoulmates are two of the biggest names in senior dating sites, both known for their dating tools, value for money and matchmaking success. But who will come out on top when they go head-to-head on the features which really matter?

Userbase

Both sites are dedicated to introducing senior singles aged 50+. SeniorSoulmates boasts a shared pool of over 2 million senior singles, which on the surface certainly can’t be beat for mature singles looking for love. However, the OurTime​ reputation of over 1.4 million active seniors using the site every single month is a guarantee that you’ll be diving into a large pool of singles to flirt and chat to.

Winner: OurTime

Sign up and Profile

The sign up at both of these senior dating sites is simple and straightforward, but OurTime offers a few extras. While SeniorSoulmates will prompt you to add a photo so you’re visible to other users, on OurTime you can include up to 30 photos as part of your profile. Both sites have greetings which are a fun way to give a first impression.

Winner: OurTime

Features

OurTime​ has a great search tool with lots of filters, and both sites let you play I’m Interested to find a mutual match amongst the large pool of singles. SeniorSoulmates wins on extras though, with public questions to answer such as How punctual are you? and ice breakers to help you guide your way into communication with other users.

Winner: SeniorPeopleMeet

Mobile

It’s all about those apps when it comes to mobile devices, and OurTime has two, one for iOS and one for Android, in comparison to SeniorSoulmates’s app which is only for iOS devices. Both sites have responsive mobile apps so you can date and chat on the move from any handheld phone or tablet.

Winner: OurTime

Pricing

Both sites publish their pricing in weekly cost, and take the entire subscription in one instalment. You will be able to sign up and browse for free, and then be prompted to take on a reasonable monthly cost when you’re ready to communicate. The costs start from as little as $3.75 per week, and there are no free trials available with either website.

Winner: It’s a tie!

Chat

Once you’ve found someone you like the look of, you’re going to want to be able to communicate. While both sites offer inbox chat and instant messaging when the other user is online, only OurTime​ has safe SMS messaging for chatting on the move by mobile phone. Both sites have winks and flirts, but personally we find the SeniorSoulmates​ chat feature easier to use.

Winner: SeniorPeopleMeet

Bottom Line

Phew! A fierce battle between the two heavyweights of senior dating. But with better mobile functionality, great sign up and profile features, as well as the largest active user base, the winner is clear. Congratulations, OurTime​!
