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.
I did get the feeling the profiles on match were all real and were there for serious dating.
Most appear willing to put the time in setting-up quality profile and frequently check mail and available online.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.Try and look passed the photo and try to read into what people say about themselves with an open mind 'don't be so critical'. Chatting or engaging with people in far away (often exotic) places is only asking for trouble.If they are locals it is easy to establish their credentials this will minimize the risk of being scammed because believe me they are out there.
So don’t be disappointed if all the cute guys or girls are not knocking on your door.
