Women who think there is a shortage of men looking for love should think again, with Australia's biggest dating website*, Oasis Active, announcing that its male membership is now 30 percent more men than women.

In fact, male memberships online have now reached an all-time record high on the site.

Love is a numbers game according to Oasis Active, which recently achieved one million Australian members since its launch in 2008, securing its 600,000th male member this month.

Oasis Active co-founder and chief executive officer, Dave Heysen said: "We've heard it so often that women can't find a man – well, they're online and waiting!"

"Interestingly, we have seen that more men are logging on as internet and mobile phone technology has become more available and people looking for love can talk in real time," Heysen said.

Heysen said that when looking at the statistics it was predictable that dating online would only increase in popularity.

"Online dating is fast becoming far more acceptable," he said.

An Oasis Active survey also found that this year, 74 percent of people are looking for a long term partner, and 79 percent of Oasis Active members will continue to use the site to find that 'special someone.'

Just two and a half years after launching, the site now has more than 100,000 unique Australian members logging in every day to search for love and 2.5 million global active members in the UK, Europe, USA, China, South and Central America.

Oasis Active is owned by leading-edge, Australian owned technology company 3H Group Pty Ltd.
