I tried out Zoosk from my Facebook profile. I checked out the site for a month or two to see who's online and whatnot. I got a few winks and some messages. I called Zoosk customer service for a discount on the subscription. The rep was kind enough to give me a 30% discount off the 6 month subscription. I started my subscription in June of 2015. I met a lot of wonderful women on here. I met a wonderful woman just after my first month as a subscriber! Folks, all you need is the right one! Thank you Zoosk!
It took a little time, but I have met some very nice men here. There was something about Tony's "hello" that made me think he was new to on-line dating. He seemed shy and innocent. After a little chatting we exchanged phone numbers and decided to meet that evening (Wednesday). (he only lived a few miles from me, so that was extra convenient)
After the first meeting I couldn't stop thinking about him. I had plans to be out of town on the weekend so didn't get to see him again til Sunday evening. I was concerned he would meet someone else before I returned, but he later told me he was "gonna wait for me".
Since that evening, we have been inseparable. We can't wait to see each other and spend time together. We are still learning each other, but with openness and honesty on our parts, it's fairly simple. There is no doubt in my mind that his feelings are genuine, as mine are. We are looking forward to the possibilities in our future. Thank you ZOOSK for "hookin' us up"!! G'luck to everyone searching for their "other half".

Am I glad I only signed up for one month. This site is awful. You get a notice that someone wants to meet you and you are only given a photo to base your response by. No link to the profile or any other means of gaining access to thier profile. After you pay your membership you find out to have to keep paying more and more ongoing just to get viewed. Matches are with others who live prohibative distances away and no attention at all is given to who might actually be suitable. Lastly it is neccessary to pay one months membership before you can find out that the mechanics of this site make it impossible to work.
With the having to pay to do anything. It really weeds out skumbags. I.E. to poor to afford to spend a few bucks because they wouldn't be able to afford their carton of cigs and booze AND children things. And if they are truely on their own not just looking to cheat on their man while hes at work, they probably have lots of bills. In conclusion great for seeing quality people....assuming you don't get lots of free profiles popping up...but not much better than the free dating sites. And not as good as the more expensive sites
Can you please explain how your site works!I paid a 6 month subscription and have since had 2 -3 people say they would like to chat with me.I email ok but then hear nothing.Do I have to pay again to reply back? , I dont want to pay again everytime i wish to correspond,this is not clear in your information.If the answer to the question is yes then i will cancell my subscription,as a dating site i am not impressed by how they manage the customers who use it.
The approval format is a sham. I basically uploaded an x rated perfect date, and of course, it was approved. I think this company is linked with many dating sites of members long gone. Look at the profiles, many have a different format. How can a girl that appears about 20 be listed as a 61 year old if any approval system is used? The scam here is a woman contacts you after reading your profile, asks a couple of simple questions and you never here from her again. That's when you have the option of paying for 'coins' to determine if she read your message, or to pay extra to boost your profile. If you notice practically all of your matches are far away. This way it takes some time before you know you've been duped. If some were local you would figure out right away it's odd that you never ran into them over a 30 year period in a town of 600. I wouldn't doubt it a bit if someone in a third world country is being paid a dollar a day to answer questions or send winks for both sexes. This cons are smart enough to understand that many people looking to date may pay to figure out why they are being blown off or not solicited. This is a total waste of money.
Met a fake guy on Zoosk, "A Zoosk Member" who said he was Italian, but ended up being a Nigerian playing games, posing as a 59 year old man here in Spring Hill, TN, "Matt Humpal". Zoosk in my opinion is not a good site or theres a problem with their verification process.
This has been my most successful dating website. This site is easy to navigate. I've met lots of nice guys on here and have become friends with many of them off this site. I would recommend this site and will use again if this does not work out but I have a wonderful feeling it will.
I swore I would never submit to online dating. But, at 51 how else was I to understand who was out there, in and beyond my own back yard that seemed interesting.
I was only on the site for 3 weeks. I talked with quite a few men online through Zoosk and then met three people in person within two weeks of being on the site. They were all nice and fit their profiles quite well. My 2nd person I met became my #1 and we've been seeing each other since then.
I am thrilled to have met him and can't wait to see where we go from here.
The ony free thing about this site is viewing and creating a profile. You pay to chat, you pay to read chats. You can't mention in your profile that you can't chat. Can't put in an email address, can't even say how ong you'll pay for the privelage of chatting with people in the age range that Zoosk determines you can view and chat with. No, you don't get to choose an age, a type....you don'tbget to choose much of anything. The people on here are no more serious than the people on the free sites where yu can choose everything about what you are looking for. They cant even readbyour messages because they dont want to pay for a crappy site!!
Overall it was effective, I found several dates and ended up happy. Some of the features are great, some of them annoying. I don't like what I call double dipping. Zoosk please either be a subscription service or an in-app purchase service, quit trying to do both, it's cumbersome and expensive when you start buying coins on top of the subscription fees. You should be able to choose when you are incognito or not without paying a fee is a good example of an irritating double charge.
I joined up because of all the profiles of BEAUTIFUL single Christian women in my area, namely Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
I am thoroughly disappointed.
I know how to pick out fake profiles now, but Zoosk trolls will refine it, so this is your chance to avoid Zoosk altogether.
I am PLAGUED with messages... the EXACT same messages from women who say we would make a great couple, who say they need my email to send me pictures... I did that ONCE, then got a fake form letter from Gmail saying I needed to change my password, and enter the old one... Of course I didn't, but almost did... They just wanted my password.
Zoosk fake profiles usually have ONE photo, the race is wrong, and the height is usu 3 ft zero... but the description is usually the same. The biggest dead giveaway is the tiny town all those beautiful women are from, which I know is a village, and just one store and old people live there... I absolutely hate zoosk for lying to and taking advantage of men looking for love....
My final beef is they fuuuuuuking kept taking 75 dollars from my credit card without me knowing, without informing me, without asking me if I still wanted to take part in that waste of life with fake profiles.... I contacted them after viewing my credit card bills and they said their terms are outlined when signed up... bastards.... so I cancelled my subscription finally, after almost two hundred dollars spent and I met only one cheating lying supposedly separated mommy who actually came to my apt picked me up, then screwed me before work.... and I didn't really want to move that fast... but she wasn't really separated I found out later.... so thanks for the STD Myra.... Zoosk is a joke, and waste of time and money, everything costs, should be free after you subscribe.... hate this con artist site...
Meet a very wonderful man, I can start over with. That is why I came to a site like this one. At first it felt like a bar/pick up place get a piece of ass and never talk to them again. Yes this happened, but I learned very quick to be to read every work they typed.
I am thankful to this site, because I found Chris here. Happiness is on the way when he comes home from Iraq.
This site is terrible. The concept of needing coins to unlock a match is truly absurd. What are we paying for with membership? The carousel is stupid since it has no details so you are saying yes or no not knowing where in the planet the person is located. The chat is slow and usually you end up not connecting with someone because they are not online at the time. Many of the men were only interested in one thing and it was not a friendship, dating or a real relationship. Save your money!
I opted for one month subscription @ GBP 14.99 however when checking my bank account I see they have taken one month + six month subscription amounts coming to a total GBP 86.93 - I am trying to contact the company to get the 6 months cancelled and my money back but they are not responding to my ermails and phone call messages Ive left.
I am going to the press as this is FRAUD !!!!!
Tip for consumers: DO NOT SUBSCRIBEAsk A about Zoosk
From someone who was seeking to use online dating as a resource for pre-selecting men of potential marriage match for me, I have a few suggestions that would make the site more useful (while those looking for more casual dating can continue to use only what suits them). When I had first joined the site there were compatibility questions which I found very helpful and there was plenty of space available to provide more details in the profile. Over time, the compatibility questions disappeared and when I went to edit my profile, I had to significantly reduce the content or it would not be saved. It would also be nice to configure preferances such as distance and age range so one will not be bothered by the winks, message or even views of anyone outside of those preferances. As I would check the new views, each pass over someone I had viewed before counts in the system as having 'viewed' their profile even though we are just clicking through the views see what the 'new' ones are. This is misleading, causing others to think you are constantly 'checking them out' when you're really not. Also when chatting with someone, the chat window we have for typing is so small (a single scrolling text line) it is challenging to review what you've typed before sending. A large text box in which the text wraps and and ability to expand to full view when typing would be a great improvement! Otherwise, I had a positive experience and did meet some quality people along the way.
II have never seen a scam like this one. TALK ABOUT BEING PUNKED!!! There computers are the only people you talk to. It spits out responses to your winks,messages,etc. YOUNEVER REACH WHO YOU SEND A MESSAGE TO!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you reach their computer and it sends back a few words or says they just viewed you (AT 3 IN THE MORNING???????????? many people at this hour.. ITS A JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I paid for a month on Zoosk (because if you don't pay, you go nowhere). Then I learned that I have to pay again for access to the men who pop up and show an interest in me.
To pay for what I thought I had already paid for, you need Coins. To get Coins, there is something called Carousel where you earn Coins by indicating YES, MAYBE, or NO when a random man's face pops up. Just his face. No profile info whatsoever. You can't read anything at all about him in order to make an informed choice. You can't get a Coin for a NO answer. You can only get Coins - which you will then use to buy access to the truly interesting man who is trying to reach you - by clicking YES or MAYBE.
Of course, to be fair, if you want to spend even more on this absurd site, you do have another option. You can outright pay cash for Coins.
So to whore your way to a bigger cache of Coins, you choose MAYBE for the 30 guys who look most like the man of your dreams and least like the man of your nightmares (30 is the minimum needed to pay to play as far as I can tell). You choose MAYBE even if the man in the picture looks like Dog the Bounty Hunter and you are hopinng for Atticus Finch.
Then later, when some of the MAYBEs contact you, and you finally get to read about them, you learn enough about them to smile, grimace, or scream.
Supposedly you can Chat with someone who is on line at the same time you are. But all that amounts to is sending him a message which he will see right away because he is on the site at the moment. This is not like a Live Chat with AT&T. If he's "Chatting" with a couple of other women when you send him that message, or if he's clipping his toenails but forgot to log out of his Zoosk account, Chatting is no different from simply sending him a message in the first place.
I am hating this site. I don't recommend it. I feel like I'm in a casino whenever I sign on. I won't be renewing after my month is up.
I was nervous at first about having so many men view my profile but it was discreet enough in the required details. I may not have used all the features to the full potential as I was not sure how to set the search to screen out certain ages and profiles. I was looking for a certain amount of physical attraction connection first and foremost which is why I think this site works b/c it's based on photo and profile not something speculating on compatibility.
This site worked great for me, and I've met a wonderful woman. You do have to pay, since the free part is 100% useless, so just bite the bullet and pay. Then buy some coins, because you need those to "unlock" people that want to meet you, so just do it. Don't buy more than a 30 day subscription though, because you'll lose any money you spent once you meet somebody (which is quick) and you want to stop getting messages from all these poor women who still think you're available.
I've been on zoosk since May 2015. I have enjoyed this site a lot. I was on eharmony and match and met on 1 person on each. While on zoosk, i was dating a least a new person once a week. The gentlemen on the site have been kind, educated, and respectful. I finally met a wonderful man who is compatible to me. We have fallen in love and starting and exciting and caring relationship. I have recommended this site to other friends who have signed up. I recommend this to you!!!
Zoosk, thank you. We shall see, what we shall see! I would like to suggest, that you allow people, to narrow the "field" instead of having the ability to ONLY do it, under saved searches. And, you may want to point out to men, as I must have deleted 2 thousand of them, for that reason alone, NO real woman, wants a picture taken in a bathroom, and typos, check for typos, gentlemen, " I like "dinning out", is easily remedied. Lastly, a man that says he is 62, and when met, is 72, is a waste of everyone's time...Honesty, only way to go.
