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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
