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.

oasis online dating review-79

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.

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.

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.

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.
