Oasis Active Pros: Oasis Active Cons: Oasis Active Rating: 4 out of 5 stars overall for dating in Australia!
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.
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.
We live in a very critical society and scrolling through a directory of photos is not helping matters.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.In terms of the ads on oasis active I did find them somewhat distracting with banner ads on every page and some quite strategically placed below search results so they were quite easily confused with actual results.That said it is free and someone has to pay the piper.
