I had just returned to live in Scotland after living abroad for many years and decided it was time to be pro-active in meeting someone.
What were your first impressions of the site? Which aspects gave you the most confidence?
I chose Ourtime as it is aimed at singles over 50 years old. The site was easy to navigate and the other users seemed to be genuine people.
When did you meet?
Chris and I had our first date on Saturday 2nd of November, only 26 days after I joined Ourtime, and we’ve been together ever since.
What particularly attracted you to him/her?
on the site I was initially attracted by the fact that he had a thoughtful and genuine profile. When we met for the first time we spent more than four hours just chatting and I was attracted by his smile, his honesty and his chivalry.
What are some of the things you enjoy doing together?
We go for long walks in the hills or by the coast. We enjoy listening to music and have been to some live gigs together. We watch movies in the cinema and on Netflix. We go out to restaurants or cook for each other at home. We spend time together with our families.
And what about your daily lives? Do you live together, or have any plans for the future?
We both have work commitments but still manage to be with each other at least four nights a week. We are planning to live together and have started looking at properties. His mum, our daughters and grandchildren are all very happy for us and we believe that this will be a lifelong partnership.
