Dating service personal ads com
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.
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 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.
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.
Generally people not paying for a service are not going to take it as serious.
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.
Match seemed to me to be a site for people seriously looking for a soul mate.
Most appear willing to put the time in setting-up quality profile and frequently check mail and available online.
