Had lots of views and a number of chat requests. The women don't message me unless I message them, but they reply. I seems like they are more accessible than women on other sites. A good site overall and it seems like Zoosk themselves are pretty active in introducing women to guys. I would recommend it to a single male friend.
Before Zoosk i was never one for online dating and then i joined two days later this amazing guy came talking to me after all these other guys that tried and something just already felt different about talking with him, so we met up a few days later and have been together ever since. Thank you Zoosk for helping me find that right one and i am so excited to see what the future holds for him and i!
I was on Zoosk for close to 2yrs and unfortunately my experience was not too good. I found many ladies on here just rude choosing not to respond to introductions from myself. But one did and after an initial set of conversations I talked my way out of going forward with her until inexplicably she crossed my mind and thank God she was responsive after suffering a terrible personal tragedy. I wanted her to know i was here for her in her bad time and subsequently stepped up my communication frequency. One late evening after a lengthy conversation we decided to meet about 3:30AM at a 24hr. Diner. I made the determination in my heart and mind she was the One before i even met her in person. Online pics can be so deceiving but she is beautiful physically as well as soulfully. We clicked and have not been separated since a couple of days after that meeting. It is an improbable story taking place outside all heretofore logical relationship progressions but here we are. It seems Zoosk came through for us.
Tip for consumers: Keep an open mind. Stop focusing on the superficial because the things so many of us FOCUS on is NOT important. What is MOST important is the content of one's soul. You want your best friend. You want to be adored. So many people focus on what they can GET out of a relationship as opposed to the value they can bring to one.Ask Charles about Zoosk
When a member views another's profile there is a view alert sent to the viewed member. Afterwards, an automated program alerts the viewed member of repeated views (at different times by the same previous member) that never happened. Zoosk is exploiting members profiles by false representation. What does this create other than bogus activity, unwarranted thought and misleading the very people whom the site was intended for the betterment thereof.
Finally after a few years of looking I finally met someone on Match. I tried many other dating sites but never had any luck...I never gave up and kept the faith knowing that one day..I met Caren and we talked for hours ..went on a second date and now a month later I am so happy that I kept going. Thank you Zoosk

Zoosk is just another of those sites that try to lure you in by pretending to be free. ANY site that plays that game gets an automatic big-time FAIL from me.
I don't care how good a site is after the fact. Dishonest and deceptive practices are unethical and should be illegal.
I've walked into computer stores as they opened in the morning, flyer in hand, looking for advertised sale items that, I was told, were sold out. My response was to walk right back out the door, and Zoosk, as these boots were made for walkin', I'm walking out on YOU.
took about a week, but I found a good girl. just so happens she's a doctor. lmao. and all those messages I sent and was ignored guess some women didn't want a real decent man. So I'm happy their loss, but there's POF out there to choose..
I signed up as it is believed to be a good dating website on google, but ahahaha I could not find any men i am attracted to. They are not very good looking and the pics look quite sad.. maybe it is for older people I don't know what to think, never-mind there are better websites ..
The Iranian-owned (nothing against Iranians; have many as friends) and developed site more often than not malfunctions. It is sneaky; it lies; it steals your money – and you have to call and explain ten times before they'll refund you. It is almost impossible to un-subscribe. They make it appear as if certain people are viewing your profile over and over when in fact they only looked at you once, months before. If you're a woman they automatically set your search preferences to men who are 2 or so years younger to TEN years older, so if you're not into men 10 years older you have to start from scratch re-inserting the age range, education level, smoking status, etc., every time you do a new search. And if you want to search outside your city, you have to change your locator in your profile. INSANE. A user-UNfriendly site. A huge pain, and a huge waste of money; I felt I was giving my money to extortionists. Not to mention the vast majority of men of a dubious quality – marriage material? Not exactly. STAY AWAY from Zoosk if you value your money, your time and/or, especially your sanity. The owners are raking in the bucks by doing NOTHING to improve their site. There are other far better dating sites; I've tried several; none even come close to being as pathetic and horrendous as Zoosk – the laughing stock of dating sites. I feel like a complete moron for having ever joined.
More chances on this site to meet real people than any other site I've been. Don't like the system doing it's own thing with saying people have looked and they haven't. The message system is really bad at times and probably destroys more chances than it helps. The people have been good and met some very nice women.
I've tried a number of dating websites and recently I thought I would give Zoosk (another) try. I had tried it some time back and it wasn't very good. Sadly it is no better and is possibly worse.
I registered yesterday. All looked well, easy to use interface and some pretty ladies. I found a lady local to me that seemed nice so thought I would send a message. I couldn't however do this as I would need to pay the subscription. Ok that's fair enough, you can't expect everything for free. I instead sent a wink and pressed the "added" button which I took to mean she would be added to a favourites list.
A few things happened next. First I almost immediately (a matter of minutes) got a message from her, or at least a notification that she had sent a message (I couldn’t read it without a subscription though). Great I thought, this is a really great site, I never got that sort of success elsewhere. I carried on looking through those on the website and sent another wink to another girl. The same thing happened. I started to smell a rat by this point.
Later I noticed that the "added" button I had pressed had been recorded as me sending her a "chat request." That wasn't what I had intended to do so already I am sending out inaccurate messages through the misleading button "added."
I was suspicious that the first girl I had supposedly had a message from was real so I decided to try and google her using her photo. I did actually find her LinkedIn page and managed to send her an email to her work address. I wouldn't normally do this as girls tend to freak out at this sort of thing, but I felt I had a legitimate reason to email her; I wanted to know if I was about to be scammed by Zoosk. The next day (today) I got a reply from her work address and she told me (thankfully politely) that she had not sent me a message and had in fact not been on the site in over a year.
Tonight I tried using the "added" button again on another girl and as before I had a "message" from that person. However looking at the notification on one browser it said the girl had "sent me a chat" and another browser she had "sent me a message."
I am regularly getting all sorts of notifications from various people now which is way more interest that I got on POF. I have read a great number of bad reviews about Zoosk and how it is a scam site. I take them with a pinch of salt as some people expect to use a website and it to be totally free. This is stupid, you can't expect a company to create a service and let you use it for nothing! You will also find a number of disgruntled single guys who have a chip on their shoulder about online dating.
That aside, Zoosk does seem to be a dubious website from my short experience and I wouldn't trust it based on that experience and on the dozens of scathing reviews about the website.
My advice is be critical, careful and suspicious. I'm sure there are some genuine people on there (like me), but you might have more luck elsewhere.
Tip for consumers: Use at your own risk.Ask Ross about Zoosk
Unbelievably difficult to determine a) if your message reached the other person, b) if the other person really is viewing your profile as often as Zoosk says, c) how to set up a simple chat (IM) session.
Extra fees to see if: a) two people really want to talk with each other, b) check to see if an email was read, c) etc, etc.
What a waste of time and money.
You join for free. Get messages but need to upgrade to a paid membership to read or reply. Then nothing. Profiles haven't been accessed in over 3 months or if you get someone they are in Nigeria wanting money. So once you cancel youe membership they turn it off qnd within 2 hours you get a message. Of course you need to pay again. Don't say I didn't warn you.
Resembles playing slot machines in Vegas but you have a better chance of good result in Vegas.Southern Italy is dotted with unused viaducts, and rather than spending $50 million to tear them down, town officials near Calabria held a competition called “Solar Park South,” open to designers and engineers asking them to come up with an environmentally conscious way to re-use the existing structures.
after paying memebership the rules remain unclear, users unable to see or reach people who show interest without buying "coins" to unlock ridiculous things. Then the profiles turn out to be fake. Utter scam. Full of trolls, fakes, phishing scams. Stay away.
i have been on Zoosk about 3 months after talking to a few really nice women and went on two dates . that gave me more confidence about what type of person i was looking for . i met the most wonderful woman that lived just a few miles away .our first meeting was at a Starbucks. I never believed in love at first sight but this lady changed all that . I held her hand tight and kept looking into those beautiful eyes . its been 7 weeks now . its hard to believe how much i love her and how much she loves me, Thanks Zoosk .
Back three years ago I used Zoosk to meet a nice woman. At that time, I wrote messages and about two or three times a week I'd get replies. In three months, I dated seven or eight women, and met one whom I'd end up living with for a while. To make a long story short, things between us didn't work out. She was suffering from depression and wouldn't do anything proactive to help and we went out separate ways.
So because it presented me a number of opportunities then, I figured it would be good to use it again.
Cisco K. did a great job reviewing it. I'm going to basically repeat what he said.
I've been on for over a month now, and I've written messages to about 200 women. I'm fit, attractive, financially stable with a career love kids, have one teenaged son, love animals, I own a home and a car, and I'm clean cut with all my hair and teeth. Why have I not gotten a single response? I was teased with a couple women who "accepted my chat request", but they would never write me back. After the accepted chat request, I assumed they wanted to chat right then. I would write a short hello etc. and never would she answer!
I believe the majority of profiles are old and abandoned. They're left as decoys to entice people to join. I'm pissed because I purchased six months of this crap. I'm going to spread the word. It does this company no good to offer a service like this. If this keeps up, they will fail. The service is not good and I will never use Zoosk again. And others Erik catch on. That's the way consumers work. Weird of mouth will prevail!
