That said it is free and someone has to pay the piper.
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.
Oasis Active is certainly one of the better free dating sites; it is a relatively new design, easy and fast to get started and quite simple to navigate.
Any questions I had were addressed quickly and generally it was everything one could expect from a leading dating system.
Match Australia Pros: Match Cons: Match Australia Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars for dating in Australia!
We live in a very critical society and scrolling through a directory of photos is not helping matters.
Try and look passed the photo and try to read into what people say about themselves with an open mind 'don't be so critical'. Chatting or engaging with people in far away (often exotic) places is only asking for trouble.
I was particularly impressed with the amount of people taking this online dating thing so seriously with lots of comprehensive local profiles to choose from with pic, interests etc.
Match seemed to me to be a site for people seriously looking for a soul mate.
You must be proactive, friendly and approachable but I found the atmosphere positive and upbeat.
I did get the feeling the profiles on match were all real and were there for serious dating.
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).
I found if you spend the time to set-up a comprehensive profile and (as with all dating sites) add quality pictures it is money well spent.
Given the ease in which I created my profiles I would imagine it would not be difficult for a scammer to set-up theirs so one should keep their guard up as this is par for the course on free dating sites.
