Unique Features:

Searching

In 2013, you could search by marital status, ethnicity, relationship expectations, zodiac sign, smoking preference, height, body type, children, and religion. By late 2014, the “search” seems less robust. If you click the “search” link, you are shown a default set of matches, which you can modify by using the Keyword Search tool.
Using the keyword tool, searchable age ranges include:
  • 18-30
  • 31-40
  • 41-50
  • 51-56
  • 57-62
  • 63-68
  • 69-73
  • Over 73
You can also manually type in an age range from the search box on the main screen.


There is also an option to search by distance or to include keywords. From the main screen, the search box only includes age range, zip code, online/offline, or profiles only with photos. While you can include such information as religion, ethnicity, and body type in your profile, it does not appear that you can search by these criteria as was once possible.
You also cannot search without first creating a profile, and your profile is invisible until you upload a photo. On more than one occasion, our search results yielded women’s profiles which used photos of men.

“I’m Interested” Feature

There is a feature on OurTime.com called “I’m Interested.” It’s similar to the Plenty of Fish feature called “Meet Me” where you are shown profile photos and asked if you are interested in that person based solely on the photo. If you select “yes” that person will be sent a “flirt” to let them know. Of course you will still have to sign up if you want to communicate with them. You can narrow down who you see by age and location.

You can search the “I’m Interested” section by state, or by the entire country, as well as by age range. On several occasions, we were asked if we were interested in “her” and shown a man’s photo.

Chat: Not free

There is a chat feature, and you will be shown many profiles on the side of your screen. If you attempt to chat with another member, you’ll be taken to the billing page and prompted to sign up.
