For new online dating site
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.Generally people not paying for a service are not going to take it as serious.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.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.
As all free sites I came across a number of members simply looking for sex chat and some questionable profiles (scammers can create fake profiles).
Most appear willing to put the time in setting-up quality profile and frequently check mail and available online.
