I went in and found the city and my pictures were not what I uploaded and the pictures were of a guy a good 10 years younger than me. I never got a reply again from anyone. Well I went in today just to look around, never will I pay for this site again. My profile was still available but my pictures were gone.
The 5 pictures she originally had were there and her profile was not even close to what she originally written and I suspect her pictures are being used as a scam. The synopsis was not even a description of her. So be very wary of this site, waste of time, money and effort. Lots of pictures, but few living active members. One man remained on a year after he died. He had a paid membership.
I informed them twice. From a technical perspective, the site is clunky at best. The matching system is as useless as Trump. At least the gender has been right — most of the time. I recently joined and within a couple of days have had some nice conversations with a couple local women that I plan to meet in the next few days.
Life experience might be the best navigator through the bullshit that permeates these sites. My BS meter is reasonably well tuned and I feel…. Run from this site do not walk RUN!!! There is no way to know if you as a paying member are writing to a member who can reply!!
There is no time stamps on messages Its not cheap and check the auto pay and your bill they charged for a 1 year membership another user was charged I also canceled my subscription Matches not matching search requirements for age or distance Message infolder OMG does not indicate new or old messages If someone is logged into the chat feature and they arent a paying member they cant see or respond to your chat message so I dont know why they are even allowed or said to be active I can go on but like i told the customer service rep this is by far the most antiquated dating site on the web.
After reading favorable reviews about OurTime. Within an hour of paying my money I realized it was a scam. OurTime is an online dating site targeting the over 50 crowd. It seems like a good idea, but the system lacks a great deal of functionality and the number of people you can contact is limited. Anyone can sign up for a free account and view profiles, but they can not communicate with other members.
Anyone who is curious about the site must create a free profile to see if they will like it. This creates the illusion of having many members on the site, but in reality most are no longer using the site and even if they are, you are not able to communicate with them. Free members are able to send Flirts and view profiles, but you must be a paid member to use any other feature. Once you become a paid member you will be able to receive flirts from unpaid members which means your inbox will be cluttered up with flirts from people cannot reply to any message you send them.
The flirt function is a simple one click button so you can click on hundreds of profiles in a very short time — even though you did not read their profile and not able to follow up with further communication. To make matters worse you have no way of knowing who is a paid member and who is not so if you see someone you are interested in and spend the time to read their profile and send them a message there is a very good chance that they will never see or read your message.
As a paid member you will be able to see if they have read your message, but that is after you have already invested your energy into writing to a person that you think you might like.
However those matches have nothing to do with the search criteria you are using and therefore are useless. The software runs slowly and even though I am a paid member the site contains ads that clutter up the screen. The chat feature will allow not allow me to enter more than about 8 words without locking up, so I need to type a few words, hit enter, and type a few more and hit enter just to type a sentence.
Along with the ads that clutter up your screen there are popup boxes that popup every time someone views your profile. Once you become a paid member you will have the opportunity to pay for extra features by buying tokens. The one plus of this system is that customer care responded to my concerns very quickly. They were not able solve any of my concerns but they responded very quickly and confirmed that there was no way for me to know who was a paid member and which members were no longer active.
There are better online dating sites out there that are more user friendly operated by companies that have more integrity and value your time. I would definitely give this site a thumbs down.
This was very helpful. I subscribed to match. I keep getting emails from Out Time and am so glad I read your reviews. Is there a legitimate dating site out there one that is actually truthful and trustworthy? Thanks for your honest review. Lots of creepers who made me want to take a shower. I set up a free account and was enticed to join by a large number of fake messages.
There was also a solicitation for sex. Really a distasteful site. I was a member less than an hour before canceling my account. OurTime customer service is inline with their site.
My request for a refund was rejected. Avoid this scummy site. I meant to type scammy site, but autocorrect gave it what it deserves. I meant to type scammy site, but auto correct gave it what it deserves.
Totally agree with all the negativity on these reviews. Impossible to contact the site to complain one on one. A completely useless site. Will contact Better Business Bureau with my complaints. I would not recommend Ourtime to anyone. I really think they need to do a better job in screening the profiles. Since I joined last year I have come across tons of scammers and fake profiles.
I am a women looking for a man and they send me matches for women and men that are way out side of what I am looking for. I send and reply back to emails and get no replies, I noticed most men just want to chat for hours and never met up with you.
Every time I sign in there are lots of profiles they say I viewed and I never viewed them, I delete them and there are more the next day. So is Ourtime adding them because I am not viewing them? I took my account off of auto renewal and will be deleting my profile at the end of the month. What a waste of money and my time, I have reached the point that I hate signing into their site. One user had my profile removed and when I contacted Our time and asked why they told me they could not see why it was removed and put it back.
Then the next day is was removed again and I called them and they put it back. I told them I knew who reported it, they asked me the username and told them. They told me I was right and that they have had lots of complaints about the user. They asked me about my experience with him and I told them I went out with him two times. The first time I had a good time with him and the second time he acted like he was off of his meds and I felt scared.
I left and never looked back. Told them I did a background check on him and everything he told me was a lie. His profile status states widower, he is not a widower, he is divorced. I also found out more about him and I really think they should check everyone out before they let them on the site.
They told me he has violated the sites standards and he will be removed. Well guess what he is still on the site. I know the dating sites tell us to be careful and met in a public place. But they need to screen everyone better, keep the scammers and fake profiles off.
Why should we pay and have to deal with these people? Personally, I did not have a positive experience on this site. This was mainly due to heavy advertising on my personal home page of OurTime. I have been on several dating websites that are fantastic, and no advertising!
I can understand that free dating sites use advertising, but when you are paying OurTime is not free , then having to put up with advertising is just tacky.
Because of this I only visited the OurTime website a few times and ended up wasting a bunch of money. I do not recommend. I had great success I answered everyone. Find what makes u happy. My time on OurTime was a joke to say the least. What kind of meds are these woman on. My profile was deleted twice and a totally new one replaced and composed of complete garbage. I am assuming this was all the doings of employees of OurTime. I would think a lawsuit should be forthcoming, what with all these negative and fraudulent money withdrawals.
I have since deleted my account with these predators and are keeping a watchful eye on my cc account. I was talking to a Veterinarian from Texas, who turned out to be a Nigerian scammer living in Malaysia. Total profile, including pictures, were fake. When I emailed his info to Romancescams. Dating sites need to: Sure wish they gave a 10 day free period before we pay to use a service like this with predators on women, especially widows.
I found a man and wanted to cancel my account. Before doing that I wanted to look at his page one more time. That flashing sign was on telling me that he is online. So, I thought he is lying. And we had a small fight. Later, we found out that the flash was just flashing without him being online at all. So, why would the system set up deceiving the clients? To break emotionally and make the clients to keep looking; hence, keep paying. Their match algo sucks…sends men matches who are men or women matches who are women….
I just joined this dating site 2 months ago for 6 months. I have to ask how can you trust any of the dating websites? How do you know which ones are genuine? My conclusion is they could all be greedy and crooked. Read bad reviews of other date sites also. My husband used this site to cheat on me. Watch out ladies there must be a lot of cheaters on the site. The service is very unsatisfactory. The site is maddeningly fragile, and lockups may occur at any point.
The is no time indicator, so it is often awkward to find an unread message.. Finally, drop-down ads obscure a large fraction of the screen, thus compromising information gathering. I feel that I just wasted a hundred bucks!
I have only been on this site for few days. I have been involves with 3 scammer all three were out of state. One said he lived in Canada but is phone number was from Ohio I guessed him and off the radar r he went I had another one that I told about the guy from canada and off the radar he went, so I am very concerned and I may lose my money but it is safer to be then sorry.
Please any older female that sign up go with caution. I think their website is down. I tried to log it but a sign in request for Cyberoam.
Oh well, and I thought I would give it a try. Sorry everyone is so disappointed and lost money. I had the exact same experience from the rip off web site. I think the must just make up profiles and get some photos off of google images or something. I think I will have to change my credit card too. I feel it a scam becaus they dont even answer the questions you ask.
I have not used your services for several months. I contacted you several months ago asking you to cancel my membership but you are continually withdrawing money from my account at times twice a month. I am retired and cannot afford this. I will contact my lawyer to bring closure to this also to have my money refunded. The worst part is having someone from your site scam me for money. I signed up for a 6 month subscription because I finally saw one profile out of hundreds I wanted to reply to.
I called them a few days after I saw the charge on my card — not only did they NOT refund my Going to a bar to meet people is more friendly! The matches are always with people too far away.. Tonight, I kept getting bombarded with malicious code attempts. The prices are now almost double what are posted here and not worth it at the lower price. All of the commentary here about the misleading nature of the site are true.
If you say yes, they send messages to the individual without your explicit permission. And even if you say no the same people are presented to you over and over again. When I hid my profile and deleted that section content, when cancelling my paid subscription, they auto filled it. I enjoy my whiskey and my jazz. I love a good night of music and talking.
Love classics and authenticity. It also portrays me as an alcoholic. I will be forwarding this to Internet Fraud agencies as well as using all Social Media sites to spread the message. I regret ever trusting them. Stay away from these guys. I only average about 1 or 2 views of my profile, per day, when I have a Ourtime subscription.
I might get 1 message every week or two. However the day after my subscription runs out I am suddenly averaging about 20 views of my profile and several messages per day. Once I renew my subscription I discover that virtually all of these supposed messages are bogus. In addition as soon as I renew my subscription I immediately drop down to 1 or two views per day and 1 message ever week or so.
In addition several weeks ago when I still had a paid subscription I was suddenly no longer able to view profiles that did not have pictures posted. Customer service was of no help whatsoever. They suggested I try this and that, and none of what they suggested fixed the problem. I tried opening my profile in different browsers and even with different computers. Nothing fixed the problem.
All they told me was that they would report the problem to their technical section. And after enduring a few weeks of not getting the service that I paid for, my subscription ran out. At that point I deleted my profile and then created a new one from scratch.
In addition I can no longer choose how I wish to view my supposed matches. I also get the same matches all the time. And now they are pushing me to subscribe again, since I supposedly have numerous messages waiting for me in my inbox. I have profiles posted on other sites and none of them even remotely come close to being as bad as this site is.
However there comes a time when one has to stand up for what is right and identify a scam as a scam. I have had pretty much the same thing happen to me as my subscription was ending.
OurTime is actually a terrible site. One of the big problems is their marketing schemes. I can only see a part of the people that fit my requirements. In order to see new ones I have to block some old ones. Most sites let you see ALL of the potential. I am not going to renew my subscription and am sorry that I wasted my money here. This business has very dubious billing practices.
What they are doing is not fraudulent, in banking terms , but very bad business practices. Use your billing rights under MasterCard and Visa to fight back; each chargeback against a merchant costs them more money than what they are billing you for, and hurts their relationship with their own bank. Good for you, bad for them. Eventually they will lose the ability to even process payments from Visa and MasterCard if enough people file disputes against them.
The reason I had a case for dispute is because they did not disclose the amount I would be charged prior to processing my payment. Merchants can challenge any dispute,and if you have used their services AT ALL, they can and will say that although the services were not what you expected, they were still available to you.
This makes the charge valid. Horrible site, false emails, poor sorting, double flirts and emails, false views…more and more issue. I deleted my profile and its still up and can be viewed. Met men looking for casual sex, regardless of what their profile said. Like another reviewer I just need to vent. I set up a profile just answered some questions, nothing written or a picture. Then looked — no one interesting.
They sent me a potential match and he looked great so I joined. Call center in Philippines so I finally got my money back. Does anyone there exist in the world of the living?
Overall, the experience turned out to be your run-of-the-mill dating website. Our Time is a scam. They have the most unattractive people on the site and most of them are fake profiles. Please call your credit card company and see if you can dispute the amounts they charged you.
I called mine and they should issue me a refund in days. More like Outta Time! These money hungry morons couldnt get a date in a leper colony so, while crying in their beers, they concocted this bunch of dribble to torture the rest of the known universe in retaliation instead of actually getting a real job, taking social interaction lessons and taking shower once a day. These bozos deleted my written profile 4 FN times! More like Sour Time, not Our Time. It must mean Our Time To stuck it to the rest of humanity for the shit hand life dealt them.
Some goofs named Eric keeps actually apologizing for the same damn screwup 4 times. Anyone with a tiny flake of self respect would just fold up and quit but no OOOOO Eric just keeps on apologizing then you pour sand in the wound they bend over backwards and punishment me with a 1 week extension. Probably laden with more technical flaws than a betamax. Were there justice in this world these losers would be forced to watch porn 24 hours a day with their hands cuffed behind their backs!
More like Your Time To Suffer! Fake profiles, even when you just look at a profile , it sends a note to that person saying that interested! Chet you are an asshole. Go back to school and learn something. While Our time informed other sites my card info and all were declined.
I called and they refunded on my new card and no more charges. Someone screwed up but not everyone. I have found the site to be a joke. Have never been scammed so many times in my life. What a waste of money. At this age, a simple answer that you are not interested would be expected from adults.
Ourtime has a lot of members but most will just view you and not put in the effort to date. However if you contact them they usually do make some arrangement for a date. I guess a lot of them are shy.
I had a very disturbing experience on one date and it still haunts me. After the date he walked me to my car and tried to twist me around to kiss him.
I said not on the first date. He then struck he on my back and backside and walked away. I reported him on our Time. I hope nobody meets Chester as this was his name. It has put me off dating completely. This is one of so many bad reviews that I doubt it will get much attention, however I have to say my peace. This is the worse excuse of a dating website ever. The pictures of the men are either fake, blurred, gross like needing a bath…or downright stupid. I fee like I need to wash my hands after scrolling through this site.
I tried it for a whole year now I had it way too long and it is truly a rip off for an intelligent woman looking for honesty and decency. I find myself wondering and almost knowing that there must be a site that weeds out all of these nasty flies that are online at our time.
More than half of matches where not real people. Beware if match looks to good to be true it is. Glad I terminated my membership. I wish I would have found these reviews before I signed up. The perspective from me male is no different. I have been on the site for four days. That does not seem to do much, because the bogus profiles keep coming. The women who were legit were not even close to what I was looking for. Stay away from this site. Unfortunately, this is my 7th site, and most of the ones I have been on are the same…but Ourtime.
I just tried this and am wasting more time than ever. I am not a computer whiz ;chatting online,texting is not for me. Noone wants to speak on the phone.
Even if you said No. I could go on…not worth my time. Maybe I should run a dating service…… hmmm…Nope! You are spot on about some of the men —also, if you are a widower, leave the pics off of your wife. I told one guy that you are on a dating site to meet women and you are displaying pics of your late wife and you—that type of man has built an altar to his late wife and pity the woman that gets involved with him!
I was just scammed out of a lot of money. I will not ever use this site or any site from hence forth. These things do no work. They breed liars and scammers. So going back to the old way of finding a mate. Well I joined earlier this year for one month talked with a few women took out one. But I think she could have been married and her and her husband date others but that is not the sites fault nor can they stop those games..
So thought I would give it another try rejoined for free a few months later put off paying for a few months needing to take care of some business…Joined the first of nov. The 44 were included in the There was one girl 33 lives miles away…Of the other 36 messages there was maybe Okay maybe people have dropped out.. Just lies and deceit to get you to join.. I will be out end of month as I have already gone in and took off automated pay..
They did the very same thing to me. I did not press the button for the They ARE thieves and their website sucks. My ratings for this site is minus stars for overall, features, price and customer service.
I wonder where these people come from, the gutter? Clearly not a match but they send them as such. Such a rip off and a insult to our intelligence. I finished the end of the month and I have only been with them a week. I spent good money to get nothing in return,after getting no responses,meeting no one. I quit and i hope everyone stops throwing their money away. I changed all the settings to stop automatic billing to my credit card not once but twice and they still billed me.
I fixed them, I canceled the card so no more billing me! I was constantly contacted by foreign scam artists who are too stupid to realize that a highly educated person wont fall for their games. The needle in a haystack was just not worth the time wasted. When I choose not to meet someone,I was accused of being too picky or thinking I was better than..
Why do males fee they have the right to choose one they feel is a good match, but females are accused of being picky or stuck up when we reject those who we feel are just not a good match?
I found most on line dating sites about the same. Chalked full of social misfits, narcissists, liars, cheaters and sad sacks.
So few good men. Ourtime sends fake flirts and slammed my account with photoless profiles. The males who did write me obviously never read my profile, they simply looked at the pictures. I am dating in real life only now, at least I can see the real person rather than a 10 year old photo and watch body language and hear tone of voice before deciding whether or not they are safe to meet. Dont waste your money on this dating site or any other unless you have unlimited hours to waste weeding through the wackos.
Auto Renewal was automatically set without my knowledge! I agree with all the previous comments on this page. Then I met one who claimed to work for the UN and he had a supposed car accident and he said that the UN personal took him to new York.. Then pay a token for his release. So you never get to meet them face to face. This is what you get when you start pressuring about a face to face meeting. As a guy, nothing but interest from pictureless, informationless profiles from people out of state, out of the country, who flirt you, like you, favorite you, email you.
And I know every site has some, but SO many obvious fake profiles and scammers on here. I feel sorry for the OurTime women if it is like this for them too. I fell for this piece of crap and gave up by the end of the first day. This site is a joke. Do not waste your time, energy or money! This site is a scam.
It initiates emails to members that were never authorized including flirts, favorites and indications of interest. It has no customer service — just FAQs, no email address or available phone number.
The Our Time dating website is a total scam. Within one day of subscribing, they sent numerous emails out to other members saying that i liked their photo, flirts, and adding members as favorites, without my knowledge or approval. Class action suits are useless. For starters, I had one of the guys tell me that they pay people on the site to send emails to keep you hooked.
The other problem, and I realized it is not the websites problem, but out of the dozen men I talked to, most were married. If anything we need to have a site to report these losers to so their wives can find them. Probably the men have had the same experience. There has to be a better way….. I wish I had read the reviews before I decided to give it a try. It took me 5 min to sign up, I spent 5 min on it before I got a weird feeling about it, I tried to get a refund.
The woman I got on the phone after that first 5 min said since i used the site, i could not get a refund, and she said the only way to speak to her superviser was via email. Unable to log on …always invalid.. Class action lawsuit sounds pretty darn good,Far to many people are being ripped off.. Class action suits are useless because these bozos are based in Costa Rica and therefore outside of any North American legal jurisdiction. Although I am a straight woman, over 50 [which is what they claim the site is about], they sent me women seeking men!
And they sent me profiles of young guys — obvious hustlers. Worse -they mistakenly changed my profile name to something very sleazy. Worst dating site ever. The site sends auto flirts and messages from profiles of people who are not members. When you respond to the flirts or messages you never hear back from the person. I think there are a bunch of fake profiles and that most of the messages and flirts are fake to get you hooked.
Class action lawsuit sounds like a good idea because there is no way to get a refund and you think your purchasing one thing but you get something totally different ,annoying and frustrating.
Need some examples of well written or re-written profiles? Who Are The Dating Gurus? Reviews of Dating Sites. Cost of the Service OurTime costs nothing to join. Your subscription will be renewed automatically. The worst part of this is that you cannot turn off automatic renewal. After your subscription is renewed, you pay the whole amount, and this amount is not refundable in any part.
So, if your subscription renews for another 6 months, you pay in full. Token packages explained below have the same auto-renewing issue after a day period. What We Like Easy to Use: Profiles of Real People Unlike other dating sites, OurTime seems to have pictures and profiles of real people. No Customer Service phone number listed on the site Only listing a "Contact Us" web form on the "Contacting Customer Care" page does not inspire confidence in its members or potential members.
I can only describe this site as looking at a prison line up!!! I have been on our time for more than a year. But that might be my achilles heel. My problem has been more with the quality of men I have met and dated men with moderate to severe mental health issues. I even had to beg OurTime to take steps to consider removing one after proof.
Some of these men could actually be a danger. What I'm looking for is to spread the word about some of these very challenged men so women don't waste their time and possibly heart on some of these guys.
My most recent nut no showed twice and then called me a stalker. We didn't speak until 3 weeks later when all of a sudden he had to meet me. He began his initial introduction on OurTime with he just wanted to meet a woman his age that still wanted to be intimate.
Yet twice he wanted to break off talking because he'd never please me due to ED. Next day break up. Yep you guessed it I invested a lot of time and patience into this man. I think there should be a place to let someone else know his name at least first and where he lives. The guy is a fearful nut. It's just been guy after guy like this. And those who say the same picture floats through continuously are correct.
I joined "OurTime" for free, Once I paid for a subscription, nothing worked. Every time I attempted to sign in, it stated something was wrong. I could not sign on. I called customer service immediately, could not get a refund. But I did cancel any further charges, I hope.
I came onto the site with honesty and openness rarely afforded to anyone. I had all good intentions. Except I was the only one with good intentions. And, of course, both said they would pay me back. And one of my personal favorites was the one that had the photo of himself, shirtless, with a bit in his mouth admitting that he was "submissive". Further, very few of the "Today's Matches", followed my profile. I have requested a refund. Let's see how that goes. I had been communicating with an individual who held himself out as military close to retirement.
There were many red flags in the communications. I finally did some digging and could not confirm the details he was stating and discredited the ones that he did. Fortunately, I have family in the military and they were able to help me with this. The site needs to have a better vetting policy in order to have legitimate individuals interested in meeting. This was my only time and will be my last. I carefully and specifically put what I am and am not looking for. I have no interest in atheists; I get matched with atheists.
I get matched with smokers. The culmination of emotional and sensory overload. I did meet a few people, but it's just not worth wasting money on this. The majority are not in my town, and some are even out of State. Also some same sex people have propositioned me. It's all a flip of the coin whether you find someone. At this time the site does not work. It keeps flipping to a site in the U. I don't like the fact that OurTime will tell someone you found them interesting, when you did not.
I have received quite a few messages from guys thanking me for showing an interest in them, or that I said I liked their photo!
Then I see my photo and a note in a bubble saying "I am interested in you", "Let's chat" or something to that effect. So, it seems if you just look at a photo or maybe read a bit of the profile out of curiosity, it will tell the person you are interested in him or her. I feel this is deceiving to the man or woman, as to possibly get their hopes up, when there is no interest at all. I did not see this in the rules, so I'll just have to try to be as careful as possible and wait it out until my account expires.
Warning to people looking for relationships on line. Avoid this website at all costs. You will regret it if you don't. It doesn't even deserve a 1 star rating and you will pay through the nose to cancel your subscription. I met a couple of truthful men online but the rest are pathetic.
I just joined yesterday. I'm hoping I'll be able to stop a renewal next month. I also can't believe how silly I was to not check the reviews first. I have always done that for everything! I try to delete contacts and it's not working. I take full responsibility for my blunder and will pay for the month. Signed up for a month and in that time spoke to 1 lady, didn't go anywhere The response rate is truly appalling as it was with there other site dating direct in the end they gave me the option for ladies to contact me free resulting in a few conversations on dating direct.
I cannot recommend this site, if you're a decent bloke trying to find a lady to date there are far better sites that are cheaper and yield a result, this one is crap. Yea, you meet who you think are nice girls but 4 of them asked me for money because they got into Ghastly situations and they all seem to be self employed, parents dead, no family and trapped in a foreign country.
They sold my email and I'm still getting spam emails about 'she flirted with you' and when I look at the links, it's not from OurTime. After this experience I'll probably never go to a dating site again. Someone needs to shut this site down. I signed up on OurTime. There is no verification process and most profiles are fake. Seniors are being targeted on this site.
Save your money and go out and join a few clubs, dancing, kayaking, playing pool but you will waste your money and time on this site. OurTime is the largest dating site created specifically for the baby boomer market. In contrast to many other dating sites which offer a plethora of unnecessary options, OurTime keeps their interface and searches simple so that they can be used efficiently and with little to no hassle.
For a small fee, OurTime allows you to bump your profile up so it appears near the top of the search rankings.
