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’.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
