Below we pit two of the Australian online dating heavy weights against each other.Oasis and Match have been two of the most talked about and reviewed dating sites on our oasis blog as such we compare reviews from two of the leading Australian dating websites oasis vrs match with very interesting results.So don’t be disappointed if all the cute guys or girls are not knocking on your door.

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.

There are many very nice, honest, intelligent and successful people out there who could make very good partners with you however may not be as photogenic, poetic or quite frankly as attractive as you would like them to be.

It is very easy to be critical when you're browsing through a long list of profiles but you may be your own worst enemy.

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.

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.

That said it is free and someone has to pay the piper.

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).

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.

Match seemed to me to be a site for people seriously looking for a soul mate.
