Have you heard about the Art of Observation lately? Well, we need to use this type of skill while online dating and telling if someone is active on OurTime.
To get an answer, you can simply check their Online Status if they haven’t hidden it already.
But, what if they did so Don’t worry, there are other indirect features that you can use to find it out!
Here are 7 tips to tell if someone is active on OurTime:
1. To tell if someone is active on OurTime, you should check their activities on this app.
To begin with, the relationship psychiatrist Dr. Gail Saltz claims that people who are using Ourtime are more open and more flexible than people using other dating apps
Thus, don’t be shy and try to check out their profiles because people on this app don’t mind it and are ready to connect.
Thus, to tell if someone is active on Ourtime, you need to check up on them because just like on Hinge, you might deal with inactive profiles on Ourtime too.
- You should check if they have updated their photos or the information on their bio.
- Check if they are using the newest features that this app provides.
- Keep an eye on the information they put on their profile such as their profile picture. You might notice that they are using a very old photo.
Yet, don’t be fooled by these details because they might be using an old photo but still be active or they might choose to not update their info at all.
2. Send them a message (if you’ve already matched).
Another way to tell if someone is active on Ourtime is to send them a message.
- Yes, be bold and try to talk to them.
- The moment that you send the message and they respond to you this means that they’re active on OurTime.
- Yet, they might be active and ignore your message or answer later.
- Thus to make sure that you tell if someone is active get the Email Read Notification Feature.
To get this feature, you need to purchase a Premium Subscription, and the moment you send a message to another profile, you’ll get notified the moment they open the message.
3. Keep an eye on the “Online Now” OurTime feature.
The simplest way to check whether someone is active on Ourtime is to notice whether they’re using the Online Now feature.
If they choose to keep their profile visible to anyone then you can notice a green dot on their profile when they’re online and can receive messages.
You will be able to see this green dot under the state (e.g. Dallas, TX) and under that, you will notice a green dot and their online status.
According to OurTime and based on our experience and observation, we noticed that there are a few types of green dots.
- The solid green dot means that this particular member has been active up to 45 minutes ago.
- The empty green dot means that this member has been active 46 mins- 24 hr ago. In some particular areas, you will be able to see statements like “Active 1 hour ago”.
- No dot or circle means that they weren’t online for more than 72 hours.
4. You can send them Virtual Gifts.
To check if someone is active on Ourtime, you need to grab their attention.
- You can grab their attention by sending them Virtual Gifts.
- These virtual gifts can be sent just as Images or Images with text.
- Virtual gifts need to be purchased with tokens and you need to purchase tokens outside every other membership that you have.
- These virtual gifts are purchased in bundles that have different prices e.g. 55 tokens are $2.99, and 110 tokens are $5.99.
If they respond to these virtual gifts then you’ll get a glimpse of their online status.
Yet, I recommend you to be careful when it comes to attracting their attention to check if they’re online.
A lot of catfishers can stay constantly online or active just to get your attention and move forward faster with your relationship.
5. To tell if someone is active on Ourtime, you can use the “Who’s Viewed Me” feature.
If you use this feature, you can check if someone has been active lately.
When a profile is shown in the ‘Who’s viewed you” part, you cannot know for sure if they have been active now or hours ago.
- You can just know approximately that profile was active when they checked your profile since the last time you checked out the list.
- To check who has viewed your profile, you need to go to your profile, and then below the Upgrade to Premium feature, you can see the “Who’s Viewed You” feature.
- To have access to this feature, you need to be a paid subscriber.
6. To check whether someone is active on Ourtime, search for “Online Members”
Unlike other dating apps such as Tinder or Bumble, Ourtime provides you with a very useful feature such as “Online Members”.
After you select your preferences, you can select Online Members and you’ll get results for profiles that fit your preferences and are online.
- You need to go to the Discover Page.
- Then click on Advanced Filters.
- You need to scroll down and check the Feature where it is written Online Now and turn that on.
Then when you go to the homepage where other potential matches are shown.
These matches are shown according to your preferences and the ones that are currently active or have been active within the last day.
7. Try to join the Live Cafe on Ourtime.
Just like MeetMe, Ourtime offers a feature where you can go live and connect with others.
This is also a chance to tell if someone is active on Ourtime.
You can choose the chat group based on your interests and up to 30 people can be a part of one chat room.
You can try to enter different live rooms during different times of the day and you might encounter them if they like to join Live Cafe too.

FAQ: How can I spot an active user on Ourtime?
1. What does the yellow dot mean on Ourtime?
The empty yellow dot means that this member of Ourtime was active between 24 hours and 72 hours ago.
As mentioned before, in some locations, this description can be more detailed (Active 2 days ago and so on).
2. How do I balance the desire to find out if someone is active on Ourtime and respect their privacy?
To balance the desire to find out if someone is active on Ourtime and respect their privacy, you should use only the features that are available on this app.
You should not use third-party apps to spy their phone or activities because that would make you cross their privacy line.
Thus, if you stick to interacting with them through the app and checking if they respond to your interaction then everything will be fine.
3. What should I remember while determining someone’s activity on Ourtime?
While determining someone’s activity on Ourtime, you should keep in mind that not everyone has the same strategy while using dating apps.
They might not like to be online all the time on this app. Maybe they are trying to get used to this app or are balancing real life and online dating.
Depending on their circumstances and preferences, you should not take any of their actions personally.
There is nothing wrong with checking from time to time if they are online or not but make sure that this activity doesn’t turn into an obsession.
Last but not least!
To tell if someone is active on Ourtime, you need to either check their online status or keep tracking their activities on this app.
Just like spotting an active account on Snapchat, you can tell if someone is active on Ourtime without checking their location.
If they have decided to hide their online status then you can try and communicate with them.
If you’re already using the Email Read Notification Feature then this feature will let you know if the other recipient has read the message or not.
In general, you should interact with other members to know if they’re active or not.
If any of these methods don’t work for you, you can be more open with them and discuss this issue or you can contact us to assist you for a longer period.
Signing off and wishing you the best!
