Match Dating Australia
Match is a global leader in online dating. Established in 1995 it is one of the longest running online dating sites and with an estimated 20,000,000 worldwide users (approximately 1.Five million in Australia) it is very likely the largest.
Match offers a free sign-up and seach with limited contact functions however if you are serious about finding that special someone on match, in practical terms you will have to pay a monthly fee (something in the order of $20 depending on length of term). I found if you spend the time to set-up a comprehensive profile and (as with all dating sites) add quality pictures it is money well spent. I was particularly struck with the amount of people taking this online dating thing so gravely with lots of comprehensive local profiles to choose from with pic, interests etc.
Match seemed to me to be a site for people gravely looking for a soul mate. Most show up willing to put the time in setting-up quality profile and frequently check mail and available online. If you are looking for certain characteristics in a fucking partner, match has some nice features including ‘chemistry” an advanced matching service which is a fine icebreaker ’we are a match’. It has key word and advanced search functions to find just the type of person you are looking for, with interests in common, in your location etc. This by no means ensures success however. There are a lot of dos and don’ts, egos, attitudes and issues still facing us singles out there. So don’t be disappointed if all the adorable guys or women are not knocking on your door. You must be proactive, friendly and approachable but I found the atmosphere positive and upbeat.
I did get the feeling the profiles on match were all real and were there for serious dating. I was comfy in making the very first treatment and I did have mail and contacts coming in. 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.
Match Australia Pros:
Match Australia Rating: Four.Five – Five overall for dating in Australia!
One significant statistic to recall is that 20% of the profiles get 80% of the attention. 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 telling 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 Quick Tips:
My number one safety peak is: only date locals. Ask specific questions that only locals will know. Spend some time talking online before meeting someone. When you are ready, meet in a public place maybe with a friend but don’t invite them over for drinks. A quick coffee at a local coffee shop in the middle of the day is good. Don’t have too high of an expectations, treatment it as meeting a fresh friend. Exercise common sense but don’t be too suspicious. If someone sounds too good to be true they very likely are so be cautious. Never lend anyone money for any reason (that is just foolish) and don’t give out too many individual details online. Relieve, ask about them, talk about things they are interested in, don’t compare them to your last boy or female friend. Most significant love the practice recall we are doing this for joy 🙂
