Oasisactive online dating
Hmmm Was that last post made by a sales rep from RSVP??
I don't think it matters a bit whether you pay or not, some people will always post innacurate or misleading profiles.
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.
So their structure is aimed at making people go premium simply out of desperation if they really want to contact someone. It's interesting that Match is now being taken to task for that approach: News/id USN0939287520090609 With the above in mind I, for one, welcome our free-dating-site overlords.
The problem with most free sites is that, registration is too easy -username, password & check some boxes, so you end up with a lot of messages from clowns & scammers, you know "the babes that look too good to be true", and probably some kids under age because the only requirement is basically "click here if you are over 18" Let's face it the sole purpose of a free dating site is not about dating, but to get you to click their ads because that's how they make their money.
Hard to accept that it's totally free without there being something amiss! You pay to send email, but the recipient can't even read it, let alone reply, unless they're a paying member too.
Plenty Of Fish, also free, was interesting for a while but no fish were suitable there for me. Of course that has little bearing on the profiles themselves. On top of that, you aren't told who *is* a paying member and who isn't.
The other thing I noticed on paid sites is the quality of members.
When you think about it it makes sense, What would women think about you if you where too cheap to fork out a few shillings to meet them, they simply wouldn't think much of you at all.
I have used oasisactive for a few months and found it just fine.
It used to be slow loading the messages bit, but havn't had any problems recently I tried Oasis for a while , I never got genuine responses it's probably because I'm a guy that's only average looking.
