Review online dating services
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.
Oasis Active free dating: With any free service you are going to have to weigh the cost savings against the quality of services.
With regards to oasis active this tradeoff comes in the form of banner ads, fewer features and potentially a lower standard membership base.
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.
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.It was easy to block people and it had a social feel as it provided a list of chat contacts.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.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.In oasis actives credit they have designed the site to minimize this risk as best as possible.Oasis Active Pros: Oasis Active Cons: Oasis Active Rating: 4 out of 5 stars overall for dating in Australia!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).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.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.
