Compatible partners dating site review
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 $20 depending on length of term).
One important statistic to remember is that 20% of the profiles get 80% of the attention.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.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.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.
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.
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.
Oasis Active free dating: With any free service you are going to have to weigh the cost savings against the quality of services.
