If you’re ready for adventure and looking to meet mature British women or men, it can sometimes be hard to know where to begin your search. If you’re meeting people in your day-to-day life, it can be a little awkward trying to work out whether they are single, interested and looking for someone special.
That’s where Ourtime comes in. We help men and women over 50 to meet other young at heart singles who are looking for friendship and maybe more. If you’re on the hunt for someone to share life’s magical moments with, read on for our advice on how to meet mature British ladies and gents online.
How to Meet Mature British Women or Men Online
Choosing the right site to start your dating journey is important. Some mature dating sites tend to focus on fleeting connections or are designed in a way that encourages spam messaging and empty profiles. Here’s what we’d recommend you keep an eye out for when choosing the right dating site for you:
- Prioritising meaningful connection: The right site for meeting someone to share life with will emphasise like-mindedness, shared interests and truly getting to know one another – the building blocks of something special. Here at Ourtime, you’ll meet serious 50+ singles so that you can be confident that the mature British women or men you’re speaking with are looking for the same thing you are. This also means that you’re far less likely to receive any spam messages than you would be on sites that are more focused on short-term connections.
- Different ways to get to know one another: If you’re a serious single, having the chance to talk and really find out more about each other before planning to meet face-to-face is important. Ourtime offers many different ways to chat securely so that you can find someone to share life’s magical moments with.
- Detailed profiles: As you browse for like-minded people on dating websites, you want plenty of information, because a person is so much more than just a photo. Do you share any interests that you might enjoy taking part in together? If faith is an important part of your life, do they also share your faith? Are they local to your area? At Ourtime, everyone has a detailed profile so that it’s easier for you to find that special someone. Every profile description and photo is moderated, so you can feel more confident and comfortable as you date.
- You’re in control: You should have fun on your dating journey, not be feeling any worry about who you might come in contact with. That’s why in addition to carefully moderating each profile picture and description on our site we also give you full control to block any profile that you’re not interested in talking with.
Finding Like-minded Mature British Ladies and Gents
As you’re on the lookout for someone fun, keeping your eyes peeled for people who share your passions is all-important. That’s why we created our handy criteria search tool. Let’s say you’re a dedicated foodie who knows your truffle oil from your tagliatelle – you’re probably hoping to find someone who’ll be able to come along to your favourite restaurant with you and wax lyrical about the perfect starter. Or maybe you’re an enthusiastic musician and the right person will appreciate your spur of the moment violin performances… no matter what time the inspiration strikes!
By using criteria search, you can look directly for singles over 50 who share your interests. By sharing your interests and preferences with us, we’ll also be able to present you with profiles from people who we think might be just what you’re looking for.
Getting to Know Mature British Women or Men on Ourtime
As we mentioned above, having different ways to get to know each other before deciding whether you’d like to move to meeting in real life is a hallmark of a dating site that prioritises meaningful connection over something more fleeting.
At Ourtime, we have plenty of options for you to choose from as you learn more about that special someone:
- Instant message and email: Once you’ve spotted a profile for someone you’d like to get to know, introduce yourself by sending a friendly opening instant message or email, all sent securely within our app. Not sure how to break the ice? Give some of our advice articles a read for some guidance on how to get that first conversation flowing.
- Video conversation: Once you’ve enjoyed getting to know each other a little over instant message or email, you may want to carry on the chat but give your thumbs a rest by enjoying a video conversation together. Ourtime offers the opportunity to take part in video conversations securely within the app, so there’s no need to share any personal details, such as your phone number, before you feel comfortable doing so. This can be a prime opportunity to find out more about one another in a relaxed and comfortable setting. This would be a great time to share more about the passions and interests that you have in common, as you can use the video conversation feature to introduce a beloved pet or to present a collection or hobby to the person you’re talking with.
- Ourtime events: Another great way to get to know singles on Ourtime is to come along to one of our fun, original events. Take part in anything from a wine tasting session with expert guidance to a light-hearted quiz session, all with other singles over 50. Our events take place across the UK, so it’s easier to find like-minded singles in your area. You may even want to invite someone you’ve been speaking with on Ourtime to come along as a no-pressure way to get to know each other more and enjoy some quality time together.
