One of the first questions you will be faced with is do you want a free dating experience or is there better value in using a paid dating service?
Below we pit two of the Australian online dating heavy weights against each other. 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. Generally people not paying for a service are not going to take it as serious. 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. It was easy to block people and it had a social feel as it provided a list of chat contacts. 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. This review was posted in our blog by Cindy Hay July 2012! 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.
Most appear willing to put the time in setting-up quality profile and frequently check mail and available online. 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’. This by no means guarantees success however. There are a lot of dos and don’ts, egos, attitudes and issues still facing us singles out there.
So don’t be disappointed if all the cute guys or girls are not knocking on your door. 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. I was comfortable in making the first approach and I did have mail and contacts coming in.
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. One must be prepared to put the effort in setting up a profile, pics etc. 5 out of 5 stars for dating in Australia! 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. 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. Try and be a little more open minded, a little less defensive and less focused on looks. 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’. Also very important is only date locals. 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. How you approach it, the people you search for, chat with and possibly meet depends on you.
Do not be too critical of the site if you have a bad or boring experience. Be positive, be careful but not too suspicious of people and you will get out of it what you put in. Obviously some people are more cut out for this type of thing but hey what have you got to lose. Ask specific questions that only locals will know.
Spend some time chatting online before meeting someone. When you are ready, meet in a public place maybe with a friend but don’t invite them over for drinks. A quick coffee at a local coffee shop in the middle of the day is great. Don’t have too high of an expectations, approach it as meeting a new friend. Exercise common sense but don’t be too suspicious. If someone sounds too good to be true they probably are so be cautious. Relax, ask about them, talk about things they are interested in, don’t compare them to your last boy or girl friend.
