Dating site photo advice
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.
Match has a number of advanced features, is a well polished system and has a safe and serious dating feel which I liked.
Any questions I had were addressed quickly and generally it was everything one could expect from a leading dating system.
Try and be a little more open minded, a little less defensive and less focused on looks.
We live in a very critical society and scrolling through a directory of photos is not helping matters.
Oasis Active is certainly one of the better free dating sites; it is a relatively new design, easy and fast to get started and quite simple to navigate.
If you want to have more success with online dating put less emphasis on people’s looks, spend more time reading peoples profiles and more time on your initial emails to these potential matches.
It should go without saying put some character into your own profile (a little humor goes a long way) and of course put up the best photo you can of yourself.
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.
