Site OK.....not sure why I kept getting profile looks as when I ask the one who appears to have looked claim that they weren't.
I went on Zoosk earlier but had know luck. I decided to give it another try. I almost gave up until this wonderful man caught my eye. I sent him a chat request and he responded. We have been talking since. The chemistry is unbelievable between us. I have found the one I want to spend my life with. Thank you so much Zoosk for bringing us together.
I have to say that this site was Awesome. Easy to Navigate and communicate with others. I met the Love of My Life!! Never knew I could have so much in common with Someone from a totally different background. We are totally alike in many ways. He gave me hope and made me a Believer of Love. I truly Adore him. We plan on getting married next year!! He's really is the most Awesome Guy I've ever met! Thanks Zoosk!!
I was never a fan of Zoosk.com and always believed that well established sites like mingle2day.com (and expensive match.com) are better options. But in general there are worse sites than Zoosk.com.
The sea is as wide as it will be in your area. This can be good or bad; the ladies will vary in type, in physique, and even mental ability(shocking..not really, when guys are the same way). While plenty of ladies are plain clueless that more than one woman is on this site, most are willing to accept that you're looking and so two to three dates per week is fully possible.
My friend encouraged me to go on Zoosk because I am going through a ruff divorce and although I'm not ready to date she said Zoosk would at least give me someone to talk to who could help take my mind off my divorce. She was right.. I spoke to several people only one creeped me out. I was about ready to shut it down after two weeks then I found a nice guy to talk too.. He has been great helping me through my divorce and though we may never be more than friends I am greatful to have found someone to relate too. Thanks Zoosk!
This is the worst dating site I have ever had occasion to join. Absolutely pathetic interface, with inanely annoying coin system which just keeps ripping you off; ever asking for more money so one can sustain communication with members.
Even when one tries to express and interest nothing ever happens. Worst still, when you reject a member, they are like horror movie zombies which cannot be killed off; they just keep on coming back in an appalling recurring nightmare! I am absolutely convinced everything about Zoosk is fake, as no matter what you do, there is never any reply or ‘real’ interaction with ‘real’ people.
Regarding records, it is just impossible to control “your interests” in any shape or form. And for those members one does contact or write to, no personal folder is created, so all records of communication are instantly lost the instant after you press the send button.
But above all what I found most incredible, was the quality of the female members – these are woefully by far the ugliest women I have seen in my life!!! I am talking light years beyond coyote ugly!! - Overall value Zero Stars!
Tip for consumers: run as far away as you can from Zoosk!!Ask Mark about Zoosk
You must buy like minimum $40 subscription to communicate to someone you like and then expect them to be a paid subscriber to be able to read your message. No way to find out if the person you want to contact is also paid subscriber. You see 100 faces and you will not be able to communicate with even say 10 of them and not sure which ones are paid subscribers...
I find Match.com to be 10x more useful, more selective, more responsive, and easier to find and date women that would be much closer to who i am looking for in life. Zoosk asks for extra money to talk with a woman AFTER joining! This is a ripoff of a site..avoid is my experienced opinion!
Its. What. U makeof it don expect to much be honest it could happen yo U
my mother used zoosk and has now passed away they took 100's of pounds on here credit card, tried to close her account but you cannot deactivate an account without cancelling subscription. there is nowhere on the site to cancel subscription and no way of removing credit cards, once they have your card they will not let go beware and avoid this site!!!
Saw the stories of recharging credit cards...so I bought a pre paid Visa..tried to sign up, pressed send and it kicked card out said process failed, try again, tried again and said process failed....checked card balance and I had 45.00 dollars deducted...called Zoosk they said call bank, I said it's prepaid...he said I am very sorry there is nothing I can do.
I am the stereotypical new initiate to the world of online dating, and I was lonely minimally optimistic that it would work for me. There were some bumps in the road in the beginning, primarily as I learned the intricacies of communicating with someone without the benefit of voice deflection, facial expressions, and various other non-verbal cues which are so vital to a great conversation. But within a week of being online, I found a woman who is a great match for me, and although it is obviously early in our relationship, it is promising enough that I want to focus on her, and see where it might take us. I think it is a match well-made. Thank you.
I didn't think it was possible to meet someone that has so much in common with me. He is already part of the family
Too many members have visions of wonder and some, if not lots, expect successful relationships to fall on their laps without working on them. You add "Friends First" is very effective. And, should build a "Cancel Date" option to minimize getting stood up if they meet someone.
I wasted my money on this site. If you create your free profile to test the waters they will send you a bunch of fake girls trying to entice you to sign-up. DONT DO IT. The girls are fake and the messages are generic to lure you in. This was money thrown away. Hope this helped.
This company's business ethics are morally bankrupt. Yes I had the same experience detailed by other people in these comments. After choosing the six month price I clicked in my credit card number and advanced to the next page where I was informed there was an additional fee of $25, "activation fee" ...nice one Zoosk. Of course there is no "back" button, or "cancel" button so you don't know if you are going to be charged if you disagree to their tacky, tacky way of roping their customers into paying a charge that was NOT explained beforehand. Is that legal? The next day I received an email from Zoosk saying they would waive the activation fee if I registered and paid within 24 hours. If you do sign up, I recommend you do what I did (begin to register and then exit the page) and then register the next day to avoid the BS fee. The deal is, I don't mind if there is a fee but it is ethically wrong for Zoosk to keep it hidden until after your credit card number has been entered. As consumers, are we going to put up with this crap? Businesses that do this are slime and as consumers we should not stand for it.
A week or so later I said to myself, "OK dude get over your hissy-fit and just join. If it's a good service don't let your bad attitude about their ethics get in the way." So I did join and have been a member for almost six months. I have not received a message back from anyone I have tried to contact. That's OK. Maybe the people who are not members don't get the messages delivered to them. I don't know how Zoosk works. I'm not upset about that so much, but what bugs me is that they ask you to pay more to see if the person you contacted actually read the message. Or they want you to pay more to send it quicker…gee…I guess I shouldn't assume that once I've paid to be a member that I'd have full use of the service. No, they nickel and dime you for more. Very understandable in our business-before-ethics culture.
Also you can boost your "popularity" by allowing Zoosk to validate your phone number or photo but to do that they want to phish into your Facebook data. Maybe that's not such a bad thing but it's a turn off. Do they mean I'll be more popular, sexy or desirable if I share my Facebook data and friends list with them?
Oh….I almost forgot, Zoosk automatically puts it's members in "automatic renewal" status. You get what that means, right? Zoosk automatically renews and charges your credit card when your subscription runs out. Lots of web based businesses do this. Zoosk does not give it's customers the option to approve or disapprove "automatic renewal." A business operating in good faith sends it's customers a message asking the customer to approve payment for renewal. Not Zoosk, as well as plenty of other businesses these days. Building customer "good will" means nothing to them. They figure, "well, if our customers forget to renew, we'll just charge them for the next pay duration…heh, heh." In order to quit, you have to go into your settings and "unsubscribe" before your subscription duration is over.
As to the actual functioning of the Zoosk website, I have really no idea. I didn't get a date or even make contact with anyone in the five and a half months I've been a member. So maybe it works fine, I don't really know. I'm not going to say the site doesn't work, but I will say strongly that for me Zoosk's business ethics are a real turn off to anyone who gives a damn about how they are treated. I was a member of Chemistry.com for awhile and I would say they are better at least in their business dealings.
I found her and she live out side of my area. I brought her to visit me in my city and we hit it off in all the right areas for making the best of our relationship. We are in love and aware of all the positives things we will need to do to maintain a healthy and enduring love affair with each other. Thank you Zoosk!
This is the worst site I have ever been on and a waste of money. Very hard to contact anyone at the site for help. Finally got someone to answer the phone. Explained to him I was getting emails advising someone was contacting me but when I tried to go in all I got was a blue screen with word Zoosk at the top. The guy I spoke was really no help ..got frustrated so I told him to close the acc, It has been doing this for 3 months. The guy said I had 23 days left but what does it matter if I cant get into it. I have forgotten my user id and no help with that either.,,,so im done with it.
