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.
One must always, always, be alert for scams, fakers and floosies (unless you like that sort of thing) whether in real life or on the net.
Can't blame the site too much when it's free, as obviously they can't afford staff to vet everything. It can only give RSVP et al some healthy competition and encourage them to be more fair with fee structures.
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.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.In October 2015, on the verge of taking a break from dating, I met someone who would change my life forever in the most wonderful way.After many messages on Oasis, we exchanged phone numbers and talked for 2 hours a day every day for a week before he had the courage to ask me out for a coffee.
Just as when you are searching for a property to rent or buy you’re unlikely to only search one estate agent’s property portfolio, so too is it best to cast the net as wide as possible and sign up for a number of different dating websites, thereby increasing your chances of finding that special someone.
