You must be proactive, friendly and approachable but I found the atmosphere positive and upbeat.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.
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.

Oasis Active Pros: Oasis Active Cons: Oasis Active Rating: 4 out of 5 stars overall for dating in Australia!
This review was posted in our blog by Cindy Hay July 2012! Established in 1995 it is one of the longest running online dating sites and with an estimated 20,000,000 worldwide users (approximately 1.5 million in Australia) it is very likely the largest.
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.
Match seemed to me to be a site for people seriously looking for a soul mate.
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 should go without saying put some character into your own profile (a little humor goes a long way) and of course put up the best photo you can of yourself.
