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 [email protected], 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.

It was fun to cut to few nice ladies but then it went on for few days I'd get no boys so definitely not for me but thank you I enjoyed every minute searching for that special lady
I signed up after being bombarded with messages from women I found attractive. The replies I received were basic at best. I believe many of the profiles are fake and placed on the site to attract business. Zoosk, you're wasting consumers time and making a profit unethically. Clean up your act!
I don't know who's the disgusting person that runs this site. This animal is just after users' money. Your payment only allow you to send text. The other party can't text you back unless they have to pay too. No refund. No help telephone. It's a piece of junk and the guy running this site is scum.
It's not legit. I am serious, it isn't.
I received an email today saying someone messaged me. I've done some research on this prior as well and found that it's just bots and things are outdated. So I was already skeptical, but I wanted to confirm things.
Since I wasn't subscribed to Zoosk, I wasn't able to read the message the person sent me, so I went through facebook and found the person and asked if she was still active on it.
She replied that she had already taken it off. So, that pretty much solidifies the research I've done. Zoosk is not legit.
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.
I met my soulmate when I was about to give up! Three times a charm didn't work...but four did! Don't give up! Love is in the air!
I am gratefull to zoosk to help me to find someone very imprtant to me.
