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.
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.
In oasis actives credit they have designed the site to minimize this risk as best as possible.
Oasis Active Pros: Oasis Active Cons: Oasis Active Rating: 4 out of 5 stars overall for dating in Australia!
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
