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.
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).
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.
If you want to have more success with online dating put less emphasis on people’s looks, spend more time reading peoples profiles and more time on your initial emails to these potential matches.
With regards to oasis active this tradeoff comes in the form of banner ads, fewer features and potentially a lower standard membership base.If you are looking for certain characteristics in a partner, match has some nice features including 'chemistry" an advanced matching service which is a great icebreaker ’we are a match’.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 has a number of advanced features, is a well polished system and has a safe and serious dating feel which I liked.
Any questions I had were addressed quickly and generally it was everything one could expect from a leading dating system.
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.
