There is no doubt about it; consumers like free and with any online dating site one of the key drivers of success is the volume of traffic and the number of members it is able to attract and hold.
Of course there are some free dating sites that will be hard to beat such as Plenty of Fish and there will always be a certain percentage of the online dating community who want a more specialized service that certain paid dating sites deliver but it is always nice to have a new player in the market and one that has shown it can attract and hold members.

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 be a little more open minded, a little less defensive and less focused on looks.
Whereas this may be a little distracting at times the clear advantage is that this allows oasis to deliver a free service that can rival the paid dating service providers.
