One important statistic to remember is that 20% of the profiles get 80% of the attention.
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.
Most appear willing to put the time in setting-up quality profile and frequently check mail and available online.
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’.
So whether you are single woman or man, and are Army, Navy, RAF, Police or looing for a man in uniform, come and look around.
Below we pit two of the Australian online dating heavy weights against each other.
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.
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).
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 was easy to block people and it had a social feel as it provided a list of chat contacts.
Any questions I had were addressed quickly and generally it was everything one could expect from a leading dating system.
