First contact on a dating site
Oasis Active does have a live feel with most of the emphasis it seemed on the live chat service although it was a little clunky and difficult to manage multiple chats.
It did have an ‘approve or decline’ contact service which was at least one layer of screening although a little frustrating if you initiate the contact.
Now that’s not to say oasis active membership is of a lower standard than match or other sites but with any free service you are going to have to contend with a higher level of scammers.
Generally people not paying for a service are not going to take it as serious.
As all free sites I came across a number of members simply looking for sex chat and some questionable profiles (scammers can create fake profiles).
It has key word and advanced search functions to find just the type of person you are looking for; with interests in common, in your location etc. There are a lot of dos and don’ts, egos, attitudes and issues still facing us singles out there.Match seemed to me to be a site for people seriously looking for a soul mate.Most appear willing to put the time in setting-up quality profile and frequently check mail and available online.Below we pit two of the Australian online dating heavy weights against each other.Oasis and Match have been two of the most talked about and reviewed dating sites on our oasis blog as such we compare reviews from two of the leading Australian dating websites oasis vrs match with very interesting results.
