Detailed Rating Summary
I liked the over all experience on the site. People can both see and read a little about you before making initial contact. That is if they're honest about themselves. This saves a lot of wasted time you could be spending living your life. Yes! I had some letdowns. But would rather let that happen here or texting than having a lot of blind first dates. Most of us are too busy to be hanging out at a bar or club. Even if this woman that seems to have VERY similar interests and met for coffee (turned into a 6 to 7 hour date) doesn't work out. My intent is not to keep looking while I get to know her. I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Zoosk and your staff.
I loved the fact that there is a photo verification tool and it is easy to accept or not accept chat requests. Definetly recommend paying for the unlimite messagining. Although only 1 male who reached me even had it! It says you are serious, because winks can't be responded to.
There are so many old and inactive profiles that it would be helpful to be able to filter through search results by when they were last active, and also to filter by paid subscription status. Having a way to change and save your default search preferences, not just make a list of saved searches.
A rating and review system for members where the rating isn't a number (because a number would likely be based solely on a person's appearance in their photos instead of a proper reflection of who they are) but instead is a list of words users can pick from to describe someone's personality: Creepy, Sexy, Athletic, Lazy, Funny, Scary, Timid, Bold, Wild, Tame, Intense, Shy, Overbearing, Offensive, Boring, Exciting, Friendly, Prudent, Trashy, etc...
I've made a few friends through Zoosk, who are genuine, intelligent and LOL funny. That's why I came here in the first place. Therefore it's been a joy, but alas the holidays are upon me. I would definitely recommend Zoosk. Thanks again. Goodbye all.
I was on this site for a while and was meeting people who seemed like they would be compatible, but I was just not finding that connection--then I received a chat request from someone outside of my geographic area, to which I responded that she was probably too far away. After a few more exchanges it became obvious that there was some strong chemistry between us and within a couple days I knew I had found (well technically speaking, she found me) someone/something special.
It took a few meetings but I found someone that I just connected with right off.
Absolutely awful site. Took £60 from my bank account and sent me pictures of fat unattractive men. No criteria match involved. Fighting to get my money back. Only £60 but it's the principle. Shocking.
Zoosk had made a great improvement then any other dating site that verify someone photo video verification because there are so many scams and catfish go on and its tough to find someone. The woman i met was exactly who she said she was personality was mentioned on our date her height took me by surprise but she was the beautiful girl i ever met and gave me that chance to get to know her. So i want play this relationship out for keeps i dont want her thinking I'm still looking around lol. Thank you zoosk!!!! :)
Everyone says: " if you need anything, don't hesitate, I'll be there for you "... so I'm going to make a bet, without being pessimistic, I wish " my 169 friends " put this on your wall. You just have to copy (not share)!!! I want to know who I can count on... and I'm sure it will be less than 25. Write "done" in comments!
I've just signed up to this one last week, so, this review may be premature (I can edit, so, I'll just go ahead with this). I do have some criticisms of this site, however, the difference between Zoosk and both POF and match is, I've actually attracted a few women-THEY CAME TO ME!
Now, what I don't like:
-The profiles aren't in a list. You have to click next, then click to view profile.
-Subscribing is required to even send an email, the only free feature is to click either a heart icon, or one or two others that are available.
-Actually, one criticism I forgot to include with match.com (not POF), is any edits require approval.
I've edited and changed my POF profile, many times.
The problem with the fees on both this site, and match.com, is they're both monthly. Once I connect with somebody and things work out, I'm done. I'll only return if we break up after a year. It really only takes one connection, that's why monthly fees are illogical.
So basically, I would only recommend it because I've actually attracted women here.
The simplicity of sifting through the large membership one pic at a time made it easy to establish physical attraction before either profile was read. This saves a lot of time wasted while waiting for a reply. They see your pic, say "yes" to meeting you, and then you can both look at the profile while you decide how to approach them, or IF you want to approach them. In my case, she had read my profile and contacted me. This eliminated the possibility that my first message went unread. She immediately replied and we had instant chemistry. The only reason I didn't give more stars is because you can't look at the profile before saying "yes" to "meeting" them online. You can't look at all their pics first either. The "yes" for both of you is based on one pic. It's not that the method is bad because it does what's intended. It gets you both talking to potential dates that are attractive to you. You can see the profile after you've both said "yes," before your first message anyway, so the best thing about it is that it saves ALOT of sifting looking for someone that wants to talk to you. In this regard, Zoosk is the best dating site I've found for that, but DO read the profiles first or you're going to fail to 1) Capture their attention by noting something in common between you, compose an opening message that gets them talking about something in their profile, or have anything interesting to say. 2) They might not be in your area. In my case I was prepared to go anywhere to find compatibility. That's what they make planes for isn't it? I was lucky enough she was in my area.
No more bullet points! Do your Carousel homework every day and start talking to them. Zoosk will do just what a dating site is supposed to do, but it can't accomplish it without two human beings that are attracted to each other interacting.
