Zoosk, found online at Zoosk.com, is a dating site which says that it helps people date smarter using their own unique technology and is available in more than 80 countries and 25 languages.
How Does It Work?
Like other dating websites, Zoosk allows members to sign up and create a profile completely for free. But as you start looking around and interacting with other members, Zoosk's Behavioral Matchmaking will "learn" about you and begin pairing you with singles you are likely to be mutually attracted to.
Once you want to begin actually speaking with other members of the site, you will need to upgrade to a paid membership.
Though Zoosk does not publish its upgraded membership fees, they are reported on other websites as being $29.95 per month, for a month-to-month subscription, $19.98 a month, billed in one lump sum of $59.95 for three months, and $12.49 a month, billed all at once for $74.95 for a six month subscription. All subscription plans automatic renew unless you cancel in advance of the new billing cycle.
Currently Zoosk offers mobile applications for both Android and iOS operating platforms.
Since this service is offered with a pay per month plan, as well as all other shipment plans needing to be paid in advance, their Terms and Conditions clearly states that all charges and fees are non-refundable.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who would like to speak to their Customer Service team about their questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by phone at 888-939-6675, by email at Support@Zoosk.com, or by submitting them directly to their website.
Unfortunately Zoosk has many mixed reviews with unhappy customers complaining that they believe this site sets up fake profiles and provides fake interactions, but there is nothing in their Terms and Conditions which supports these accusations.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many other online dating sites available out there, some of which are straightforward traditional sites like Match.com and eHarmony.com, while others are more targeted towards specific niches, like ChristianMingle.com.

Loved my experience on Zoosk
I took 3 months subscription and met someone on my second month. Everyone on the site is real, very nice at least from my experience. I am a picky woman so went on 5 dates in total, my first 4 were all first dates. I had a connection with my 5 date. We have decided to see each other taking things slow and see where it goes since i am looking for long term relationship.
Love every single moment spent on Zoosk and recommend it to friends and family. I will surely come back if things don't work out but for now leaving the site.
It's a scam
I signed up for 1 month. Later, I went to my account and it shows I signed up for 6 months. They made it impossible to change it back to a month.
You constantly get young girls from out of state scamming you. Their software can't pick your settings for race, or age, and radius you'll date. When they make your daily pick for you, it's some gorgeous woman from 300 miles away, or a local girl no one would date. The navigation sucks. You select women when you don't even know where they live. This is a really poor/scam dating site.
I totally recommend Zoosk . I met a few losers ... but persevered and finally met someone worth the wait! We are at a stage whre we will see where it goes ...but I am very optimistic! Thank-you ZOOSK!
I have found my Prince!!
I was leery of paying for a dating site, but I am so glad that I did!! He messaged me first and wanted to meet after only a few chats and text messages. He was very upfront that he wanted a long term relationship and as soon as I touched his hand for the first time I knew we were destined to meet! Thanks you Zoosk for helping us find each other!!
I have had to kiss a lot of frogs to find my prince, Joseph truly has restored my faith that there is someone for everyone out there. Be patient my friends and you will find love soon as well!!
AVOID!!! I warned you.
AVOID this site like the plague!! Most bot accounts out of any I've been on. I've joined 5 sites in the last two years and all have let me down with fakes and just women that are not interested. But Zoosk, and Topface are full of bots. Whenever I "Search Google for this image" it's some model, pornstar, or actress. And always tell me "I'm in Ghana right now on a college trip" Bullcrap!! Sites need to crack down on this botting stuff.
Zoosk is an overall easy site to use. The only thing I would like changed would be viewing people that have viewed me. Whenever I tried to view a person and then go back, it went back to the beginning of the line. It would be nice to have old profiles removed, it just adds clutter when searching.
Other than that, I found the site nice. I found someone to be with, so that is what it is all about, Thank you
Carousel From Hell
I hated the carousel. The pictures of men coming round and round were horrible. Blurry, undesirable, ill considered.
As for the rest of Zoosk, matches were generally inaccurate. I was not being shown men in the right age group and lived so far away.
There is nothing real about this site, other than they steal your money for fake women. People keep viewing me and I write messages to them and they never respond. Totally a scam and we should start a class action law suite against them for theft and fraud.
Zoosk is a scam.....
It cost $29.95 to join this site, but when one is purchasing the membership, this site hits you with
an activation fee of $24.95. If you go through paypal, then you don't have to pay for the activation
fee. The search feature has been crippled lately and the grid view is no longer available. That
means that one has to click next on every member from the search results. The carousel feature is a
joke. When a member wants to meet you and you agree, then to be able to contact this person, you
have to purchase coins and they are rather expensive. Some profiles on this site are fake, when
contacting them via the wink, an email is sent back to you from the fake profile stating"thanks for
the wink, why not send me a real email telling me more about you". I have complained to customer
service about the limited search feature and they have done nothing about it.
WHY AM LEAVING ZOOSK
It's because I think even meeting new people and getting to know the people made me change my life
DO NOT DO THIS SITE TERRIBLE I GOT SCAMMED
I HAVE BEEN GOING THROUGH IDENTITY THEFT THROUGH TALKING TO SOMEONE ON THIS SITE.
HAS BEEN A HEADACHE FOR DAYS NOW.
I WENT BACK TO THE SITE TO SEE IF IT WAS CANCELLED AND MY PROFILE REMOVED, IT WAS AT FIRST CANCELLED, WHEN I RETURNED THE PROFILE WAS STILL UP AND ACCIDENTALLY HIT THE RENEW, CALLED IMMEDIATELY TO EXPLAIN I WANTED MY PROFILE REMOVED, AND CANCELLED AGAIN, AND STILL GOING THROUGH HEADACHE FROM THIS SITE....DIRTBAGS ON HERE. ONE MAN WANTED TO BRING HIS DAUGHTER OF 21 ON A DATE, FOR FOOT FETISH ETC.
JUST TERRIBLE...DO NOT DO THIS SITE...IF THERE WAS A ---------------MILLION NEGATIVES I WOULD PUT THAT.
back alley pimp
Not free at all and who wants to pay to find friendship, dates, etc?
around entered birthday a fake profile will contact to trick you into paying for subscription
pof, okcupid and even badoo is better
I found my husband on zoosk
I'm so grateful for zoosk I found my soon to be hhusband on this site we will be together 1 year on January 25 2015. I couldn't be any happier I love more than anything I'm from Tennessee and he is from Texas
thank you Zoosk
I would like to thank you Zoosk for helping me find my boyfriend.
At the time when we first contacted each other, we were both members so both of us could send and reply emails. I found this was essential, otherwise our story wouldn't have been unfolded nicely as it is now.
Would strongly recommend people here, to invest a little bit to be a member, and see whether it would help. For me, it did make a change in life.
Last but not the least, I would like to give my best wishes to everyone here, wish you would find your match one in the new year! Never give it up. I always told myself, someone must be there waiting for me.
I wish I could give it no stars. As a PAID subscriber, I could send messages to women I was interested in, BUT...unless they were also paid subscribers, they couldn't read them!! In what universe is that reasonable? Not only that, but the system was 'liking' people and adding people to my chat requests that I never saw and maxing out my daily "40" coins when I never even made it near 40 in a day.
Complete and utter scam.
