Online dating tip for better
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.
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.
Now that’s not to say oasis active membership is of a lower standard than match or other sites but with any free service you are going to have to contend with a higher level of scammers.
That said it is free and someone has to pay the piper.
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.
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 seemed to me to be a site for people seriously looking for a soul mate.
