Online dating and friends websites
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.
This review was posted in our blog by Cindy Hay July 2012! Established in 1995 it is one of the longest running online dating sites and with an estimated 20,000,000 worldwide users (approximately 1.5 million in Australia) it is very likely the largest.
Match offers a free sign-up and seach with limited contact functions however if you are serious about finding that special someone on match; in practical terms you will have to pay a monthly fee (something in the order of depending on length of term).
So don’t be disappointed if all the cute guys or girls are not knocking on your door.
If they are locals it is easy to establish their credentials this will minimize the risk of being scammed because believe me they are out there.I did get the feeling the profiles on match were all real and were there for serious dating.I was comfortable in making the first approach and I did have mail and contacts coming in.There are many very nice, honest, intelligent and successful people out there who could make very good partners with you however may not be as photogenic, poetic or quite frankly as attractive as you would like them to be.It is very easy to be critical when you're browsing through a long list of profiles but you may be your own worst enemy.Match seemed to me to be a site for people seriously looking for a soul mate.
