The experience was rewarding! You just need to keep and open mind. Thank you for the experience.
I was very skeptical about finding another boyfriend this time around. I am 54 years old, not looking to impress anyone with my stocky physique. I just really want someone to hold for the rest of my life.
I played the carousel and landed on Mike. He sounded down to earth, so I winked. He asked for a chat. I agreed and we started our conversation that lasted for 2 hours. He asked me out to dinner and I agreed. When we met, he looked so much cuter in real life than in his photo. I was hooked.
We ate dinner and said our goodbyes. I felt really good about our first date. He called me that next day and said that he really thought that I was sweet and wanted to date me. I felt the same way.
So, I am leaving ZOOSK for my last relationship I will hopefully ever have.
Guys, if you are thinking about joining ZOOSK, get the feature that allows you to talk to non subscribers without them having to join ZOOSK. That is the only way that I was able to tell if I really liked this guy. The free chat is the key to finding the right woman. Trust me!! I found him because he was able to talk to me and it didn't cost me a penny.
Well, good luck to all the future ZOOSKERS out there and may all your dreams come true!!!
I have tried other sites and liked Zoosk best because I got a lot of matches in my area. I did meet a few people who I will now be friends with, and others who are potential relationship-matches. If they don't work out, I will re-activate my membership since Zoosk is so easy to use and keep in touch with my matches. Thanks for a good experience!
I ended up finding someone awesome through Zoosk, and we are happily together! I wasn't thinking I'd find a perfect match online, to be honest. Very glad I did!
Overall, there are a couple of things that Zoosk could improve:
-The "Carousel" function tends to repeat the same people; sometimes it's a string of the same 5 or 6 people that keep coming up; that's a little frustrating.
-The gifts seemed a little silly.
-Winks seem to actually be a turn-off, both to guys and gals. Just remove them.
-Better bot-screening would be cool; there are definitely some bots on here.
Those are picayune details, given the overall success I had with Zoosk. The end goal is to meet someone you can have a relationship with, and that's precisely where Zoosk succeeded.
Tip for consumers: Don't wink at the people you like! Write them something intelligent, creative, and eye-catching.Ask T about Zoosk
Fun Lovin' Guy and I established a friendship right away and got to know each other well. We were both looking for the same type of relationship and, even though we live almost 500 miles apart, decided to forge ahead to see if we could make our relationship work. We're both retired and can split time between both of our homes.
I kept getting contacted by women who wanted to meet me, even ones from other states. I would pay "coins" to respond and send them messages. Only one woman ever returned a message and we had nothing in common.Too many, I think, use the "Carousel" only to get free coins and have no interest in that person. The virtual gifts are so juvenile. I can't believe anyone would be impressed by a cartoon rose or Teddy Bear. LOL. One month was all I needed to see this site was a joke. I even left coins on the table. I had one day left when I cancelled and in the last 24 hours got plenty of interest. Hmmmmm.
I would highly recommend this to anyone willing to try online dating site. It is user-friendly, classy, and facilitates meeting someone in a simple, safe, appropriate manner. I met a wonderful young lady who seemed hand-picked by my creator and put into my life--I just had to make myself available here. I have waited a long time but this gal is worth it and the timing is perfect--I am flying 1000 miles to meet her, though we are already talking about our life ahead and what things I will bring when relocating to her--never felt something so real for someone, and we haven't enough met yet! If you care to follow our story, call me anytime and keep doing what you are doing here at zoosk--from the bottom of my heart, and hers, THANK YOU!!
Yeah, you pay for zoosk, but it isn't much at all. And the truth is, I've tried other free sites before, but because they're free, you don't find many matches of quality, or I should say, people who are genuinely looking for a relationship. It's not very likely you'll find someone paying for a membership who only wants to play around and never meet up, or who just wants to chat with someone. I met a WONDERFUL lady on Zoosk, and I genuinely believe this is the start of something beautiful! Thank you Zoosk, from the heart, for all you've done.
I've been on Zoosk for 6 months now. Like the other dating sites I tried before, I met some great guys, went out on some good dates and some not-so-good dates. I kept my heart open and my hopes up. I decided to take a break this spring to take care of my mom who is at the end of her life. As I did, I connected with a man on Zoosk who had been messaging me for a while. It was the right time for us to meet. The rest is, well, history in the making... All smiles.
When you are trying to find someone and you are seeing what has been pick for you and then you tried to say hi and also want to talk you get no response. I have tried to talk and meet a lot of men on this site and there was only one who really cared to talk and wanted to meet me. Please has the courtesy to either tell the other person yes I will have a talk with or tell them I am not interested in the other person. It will save a lot of heart aches.
Great site to find the one
TYPICAL DATING SITE MOSTLY BIG UGLY WOMEN AND THE GOOD LOOKING ONES ARE LOOKING FOR RICH TALL MEN GO TO THE MALLS OR FESTIVALS TO MEET WOMEN IN PERSON.
I say yes to so many Carousel photos (40/day max) and don't see any who care to meet me. And, I've had way to many who say they want to meet me, and when I write them never write back. Not even to say Thanks for writing. Just Nothing! Also, on "Carousel" there is no distance given, which is really stupid! Also WAY TOO MANY with only one photo. I had one experience on here with a woman from 450 miles away on whom I called her bluff and she was somehow taken off the site by the next day! It is all planned (SO OBVIOUS) to get people to buy into the $10.00/month level. If this is the kind of rip-off I'm getting already, WHY would I want to pay even more to get shafted!
It only lasted for about 7 days. On the 8th, I told him to Please, not contact me, again. I had to tell him that twice, with a threat to involve the police, should he do it, again! Sorry for your inconvenience. If you have any REALLY LONG TERM good luck with any online dates, please let us know. After a year, or two.
