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.

Sexist, Rude, Obnoxious Stalkers on this Site
My Letter to Kelly Steckelberg, CEO of Zoosk
I have put up with so much abuse from the men on the Zoosk dating site it is deplorable. One guy I had to block because he was blatantly asking me to go to bed with him AFTER I told him I was not interested. I have also had men get very angry when I tell them I am a progressive liberal and am not interested in dating conservative men and then calling me a liberal retard and even worse. I also have had men abruptly cancel dates when I have spent hours researching convenient places to meet and when I tell them their behavior was very rude, they have become very abusive. I have had men contact me just to tell me I am too old for them or they do not like my looks or I am too "active" implying women should not be interested in active sports when I have not even contacted them or even viewed their profile. WOMEN ABSOLUTELY HAVE A LEGAL RIGHT TO TELL THE ABOVE MEN THEIR BEHAVIOR IS VERY ABUSIVE AND INAPPROPRIATE!!!!
Then, suddenly I am no longer receiving emails from Zoosk and can not get on the site. When I call, I am told my account has been blocked AND you absolutely refuse to give me any information on why I have been blocked. I demand not only a full refund from Zoosk but also $10,000 for being subjected to both the abuse of men on your site and abuse from Zoosk.
YOUR SITE IS NOTHING BUT A SITE ENABLING RAPE CULTURE AND VERY SEXIST, EGOTISTICAL, PATRIARCHAL MEN!!!I STRONGLY SUSPECT SOME OF THESE EXTREME MALE CHAUVINISTS PIGS HAVE COMPLAINED ABOUT ME WHEN I SET LIMITS ON THEIR CREEPY BEHAVIOR AND OF COURSE, BEING A SEXIST ORGANIZATION, YOU JUST MINDLESSLY SIDED WITH THE MEN.
I am forwarding this email to media outlets and to the Ultra Violet, a feminist organization.
Zoosk and the men you promote are sick, sick, sick.
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.
