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.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.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.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.
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.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.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.
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).
