There’s no hiding away anymore and on the contrary even, it’s common practice that friends will share chat print screens of their dating shenanigans with their friends.
The use of location identification apps are another clear sign of how out-in-the-open online dating has become as it forces the merging between online and offline dating.
Given the ease in which I created my profiles I would imagine it would not be difficult for a scammer to set-up theirs so one should keep their guard up as this is par for the course on free dating sites.
In oasis actives credit they have designed the site to minimize this risk as best as possible.
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.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 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.It was easy to block people and it had a social feel as it provided a list of chat contacts.
With regards to oasis active this tradeoff comes in the form of banner ads, fewer features and potentially a lower standard membership base.
