Oasis active is much better than most, especially for a free site.
It suffer's major problems because of the commonality of the people frequenting the site.
In the three or so months I was on there, of the 30 people I chatted to, not one left because they found a partner.
One female I spoke to would receive 30 requests for contact on an average Saturday night.
The argument that fees result in quality people is a valid one, but RSVP's structure is simply unfair – pay just to "express interest", and your stamps have a time limit. Of course they have a "premium" membership, which allows proper two-way contact.
Can't blame the site too much when it's free, as obviously they can't afford staff to vet everything. It can only give RSVP et al some healthy competition and encourage them to be more fair with fee structures.
if you like those sorts of people, then internet dating may be for you. I'm getting out into the real world where I can avoid the false advertising of artifical made-up dolls with a woman who can't stand up without a team of Party-officials (friends) telling her what to do every step of the way.
Where are you my taller, older green-eyed lass with black hair? strange women on there, even the ones who Id consider 5s and 6s show no love lolol....
To me Oasis wasn't free, because my time is valuable, and I'd rather spend it meeting someone over coffee at a cafe than waste my time reading thru useless messages.
I just discovered Oasis and ended up here while searching around for what people have been saying about it.
