Below we pit two of the Australian online dating heavy weights against each other.
Oasis and Match have been two of the most talked about and reviewed dating sites on our oasis blog as such we compare reviews from two of the leading Australian dating websites oasis vrs match with very interesting results.
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.
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.
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.
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.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.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.Match has a number of advanced features, is a well polished system and has a safe and serious dating feel which I liked.
