OK, it's been some time since I paid for a membership at Zoosk, but it seems to share all of the contemptible and deceptive practices of most online matchmaking sites, and throws in a few of its own as well. It has been interesting reading through the Zoosk reviews to discover some of the bad customer service and deceptive practices that I did not myself experience, but, based on my experience, I have no reason to doubt.
PEOPLE, STAY AWAY FROM PAID DATING SITES! The Free ones are bad enough. At least at the free sites you don't lose money along with your frustrations and disappointments. The industry of paid dating sites needs to die (or, better, be destroyed), sooner rather than later.
We started communicating on Zoosk, then went to texting and talking on the phone. Then we met in person and hit it off right away! Even though we lives 67 miles from me, we try to see each other as much as we can.
Tip for consumers: Make sure the person is willing to meet in person. If they cancel, be sure there is a legit reason. If they cancel with some lame excuse, be cautious as to they are probably a scammer. Also, make sure the pictures, phone number and anything else is verified, not just phone number and facebook, they are scams.Ask Leslie about Zoosk
This site was good and give me the options of talking to different guys with out going to clubs or bars witch is perfect to me because I don't really like those places :)
Thank you Zoosk :-)
This is an addendum to my just previous review:
Forgot to mention:
Don't go on a dating site WITHOUT a profile pic !!
And how about taking off those thick eyeglasses?
And it sure would b excellent if u actually LOOKED like ur pic. Not one from 7 yrs ago.
When I first created my zoosk account, the first thing that confused me was that I couldn't actually text anyone without paying for the subscription, first. Which was/still is, pretty frustrating. I paid for it, then things went pretty well after that. Despite there being plenty of fake accounts, I manged to find someone I shared a lot in common with, we talked over zoosk for about a week. Then we actually met up in real life about a week later and the date went very well and now we're very happy together. :) Thanks zoosk. ...but it's still expensive...
When I was not a paying member I got a msg saying a woman had sent me a message.I needed to pay a fee to read it I could see the woman picture and it was someone I knew at work. She told me she never sent me a message. I contacted Zoosk and told them they never responded they are fraudulent just picking people that use to have a profile on the site as this woman did. Trying to get money out of me on dishonest terms. I suppose they will get away with it. Match.com had to pay a settlemet for pulling a similar stiunt. I guess Zoosk figures no one will sue.
Overall I have been happy with Zoosk. There have been periods of time when the pickings were a little slim but that always turned around in a few months. My experience was that other site users were pretty truthful. Use your head and follow the safety suggestions and you may join the ranks of us that have found that one person we were made to be with. Thank you Zoosk and patience to the rest. SKH
I meet some one special thanks
Zoosk requires you to have a paid account to communicate besides a wink, and you're told you have a message after a wink. But it ends up being an auto-response you paid to see!
There's hardly anyone who can communicate on Zoosk, and my CC # was stolen through it!
I found the site difficult to navigate at times. I didn't really understand the carousel/coin system and how you had to use coins for certain things but not others. However, in the end the site came through and just as I was about to deactivate, I met the most amazing man. So in the end all the tricky navigating paid off:)
I WENT THROUGH ABOUT 100 PROFILES BEFORE I FOUND JANET. SHE'S NOT LISTED AS A CONTACT. SHE LISTED A CELL NUMBER SO I SENT A TEXT TO THAT NUMBER. I MET MANY PHONEY PEOPLE HERE. GAME PLAYERS AND LIARS. I HAD TO START A FRIENDSHIP WITH MY GIRL WHO LIVES 450 MILES FROM ME INSTEAD OF 50 MILES. BUT THANK YOU MATCH. I APPRECIATE THAT IF NOT FOR YOUR WEBSITE I WOULD NOT HAVE MET JANET.
Basically, I think online dating services suck!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why? My experiences, I've probably tried at least 7 online dating services, and from all of those I got ZERO dates, Zoosk is THE ONLY one that I would reccomend, why? Cause I've actually connected with people. Zoosk is the only one that works for me!!!
Once I got use to the flow of Zoosk, it worked fairly well compared to other on-line dating sites I have used in the past. Be careful, you do not need to purchase "coins" if you wish to review the profiles in your carousal. You earn coins each time you rate your attraction to the face presented before you, then you can use those coins to boost yourself or read a more detailed profile. For the most part, I found people using Zoosk to be genuine. Zoosk does a good job of weeding out those who aren't who they pretend they are.
Compared to other sites ZOOSK matched me up better with ladies that matched my search guidelines and story. I followed up on a wink and met Happy. She is the most wonderful person I could ever hope to meet. We are totally devoted to other and plan to be together forever. Thanks ZOOSK!
The problem with zoosk is not their ridiculously high membership fees, even if you get a discount. The real problem comes in the form of "mutual matches." What zoosk fails to make clear, anywhere on their website, is that BOTH parties must pay the coins to unlock mutual match. You pay your coins, and it looks like the match has been unlocked, but until the other party pays their coins as well, nothing will get through. The other problem with this site is that carousel does not show you location, and it consistently matches you up with people who are not even in your demographic area. SO glad I only paid for a month. I will not be renewing.
Thanks to Zoosk I found an Awesome match which I hope will turn into a phenomenal relationship. We will see. I believe it will.
I want others to know our story
I told people I used to like myself until I signed up for Zoosk and felt so rejected. Men would look at my profile and not make contact. Then, I changed the profile to be more about me and not about what I thought people were looking for, and I also got over my shyness and would send a little short hello. Conversations then flowed more easily. Don't give up--everyone is a bit uncomfortable at first. Zoosk provides a wonderful chatting platform to ease into that first meeting.
I have met the one I want to explore life with Zoosk is a great site to find your mate.
I have been reading others feedback about Zoosk. I Paid for the Month but found A great man right after I joined. I no longer need the service and did not have any problem cancelling my subscription. Zoosk is a very trust worthy sight they will do anything and they are there to help their members. Who ever is complaining about the site or the payments are not being truthful. I know so many people who have found their mates on Zoosk and have never had any problems. If your complaining stay off the internet. I highly recommend Zoosk to anyone.
So I paid for a subscription cause i kept getting notices about messages then when I paid for subscription I find out these are nothing more then bait and hook scams I cancel my subscription but they tell me that cause i already paid for the subscription I would get the rest of that subscription only to find out they cut it short and didnt give me the full subscription and Im back to getting the scam bait and hook messages.
Zoosk are absolute crooks!!!Never ever visit this scam site!!!
My credit card was charged on Sep 1st with EUR 105!!! Without my payment confirmation and the only messages I get from some phantom Members are "wink wink" !!!
And I am being asked all the time to buy new "coins" because I do not have enough credit into my account!!!!
I blocked my credit card and I am claiming the money back from my Bank as I never ordered that subscription!
