OurTime may be the one of the earliest mature dating sites present on the web. Still, it had been the No. 1 dating site for mature singles for many years in a row. But the more members joining in, the more problems started to appear. In the last 5 years, there were so many complaints about the presence of scammers and the bad services on the site, which made OurTime lose its popularity. That’s the reason we only rank it as No.5. Now, the management team is working hard to gain its 1st place back.
It has a multiple choice when it comes to making payment and enjoying what the site has to offer you. You just need to pick the one that is most suitable in your case. There is:
• Full Price, for one month, at $7.49 per week, billed in a single payment of $29.96 and taxes;
• Standard, for 6 months minimum, at $3.75 per week, billed in a single payment of $90.00 and taxes;
• Best Value Plan, for 6 months minimum, at $4.49 per week, billed in a single payment of $107.76 and taxes;

Do you want to increase your chances of being found by other members? Then OurTime gives you the opportunity to promote your profile with the help of the Promote Me feature. It means that your profile will be shown at the top of search results, capturing the attention of more members than usual. All you have to do is to purchase 20 tokens on the website, and you will have the possibility of using this feature. To reach the same performances in promoting your profile, you would normally have to spend an entire day. With this feature, it will take you less than one hour to have the same efficiency of a day’s work, making you more noticeable.
1. The Android app makes it more flexible, allowing members to use their mobile devices to check on their profile and activity. The app allows a view of the full profile, photos, see e-mails and who saw your profile, and find out who read your messages.
2. It has a live chat, where you can see the people that interest you and get to know each other, in real time.
1. Continuous appearance of ads, without the possibility of removing them. What can be more bothering than a page filled with ads? This is a downside of the site since there is no option to prevent ads from flooding your page.
2. The free membership will not offer you the possibility of chatting with other members or responding to messages. You can only view other’s profiles, without the chance of flirting or see who flirted or set you as favorite.
Customers can always make a brand be a winner, but it is also customers who can bring it to ruin. This is what happened to OurTime since they lost the first place in the online mature dating business. It may still be the best dating site because it is extremely easily to find mature singles over here. But, it has a number of downsides when it comes to getting a real date with a mature single you meet on the site. We can also see the effort of the team to revive and bring back the fame this site once had, through the investment made in a brand-new homepage. Thus, we have the faith that it will eventually step back into the Top 3 mature dating sites after the security and certification systems are upgraded.
