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.

Seems like a total scam service... Made to look free but it isn't... Things never add up either as they ask you to create a password but anything you type in never is accepted... totally bizarre website as there seems to be little or no direction. I would never pay money for something like this...
fake sites, fake responses, much worst than match.com,
leeches off affections of lonely people, a most cruel endeavor,
for the love of money, sound familiar.....
Zoosk has legit customers as I see, but there are scammers that try to tell you to give them your e-mail so they can send pics, or skype, with you , I turn them down and tell them we can chat fine on the chat line, they don't seem to like that. Also what I experience is Zoosk sends you profiles of women with messages so you can become a member . One thing they messed up on, it's the same woman with different profiles and same pic !!!!!!!!
Garbage! the majority of the girls are inactive..the rest are fake account...tricked me into wasting money and then they wont say a word.
Zoosk is expensive - and not worth the price you pay.
Full of people who aren't actually who they claim to be. I had one even trying to get me to click on a link in an attempt to trick me into installing a virus or spyware onto my computer - didn't work because I am not retarded.
There are not enough people on there.
They have something called 'winks'. These are like pokes on facebook to test the water and see if you get a wink back or a message. This would be fine if many had not got automatic winks set up which automatically send a wink back regardless of whether or not the person actually wants to talk to you or not. You end up wasting your time sending a message to someone who either isn't who they are or doesn't want a message from your fine internet profiled self.
I subscribed after receiving a wink back - turned out this was an automatic wink which I at the time knew nothing about. The site encouraged me to subscribe to read this message i'd apparently got which wasn't a message at all.
Customer service is appalling. I expressed my concerns listed above to deaf ears.
I've used dating sites before and this is the worst. Lovestruck and Match remain the best.
First of all you will be VERY VERY LIMITED if you don't spend money here, you can't send messages you can't reply to messages, etc.
Plus you will notice very quickly that some people near your location are BOTS/FAKE ACCOUNTS, you you try to get in touch with them they will reply within seconds no matter what time of the day it is...
the reply is almost the same for all bots asking you to reply back and lure you into sending them a message, once you do that, there's no response or no one on the other side and they GRAB your money like that.
I found real people inside that i actually know in real live that live near me, but still it's a waste of money... use facebook or google+ if you want to meet someone, because at least you won't find fake profiles that much and no one will hide on fake profiles, fake photos, and fake friends.
I found Zoosk to be boring to say the least! I also have experienced pop-ups of people that meet none of my match criteria. Also, if you do not become a PREMIUM member, you don't get to read or reply to any messages. I have had people from other countries trying to pose as someone from the US of A...but they type as they speak! Be careful! If you are a member and you enjoy it...good for you! Congratulations & Good Luck, but I will not be returning!
I signed up for Zoosk on a whim after seeing an ad on Facebook, and I never expected to actually use it. However, one day I decided to give it a shot and see if my matches would actually be people that could click with me. I filled out my profile and added a picture, then went to the search engine to review my matches and to search for more.
I was disappointed to see that many of my matches were nowhere near my location, and some not even in the same country! Some of my criteria such as age and smoking and drinking habits were not filtered well, so I had to weed through a lot of people that I should have not popped up in the first place. I also found there were a lot of personal ads referring to pornographic websites rather than real people. I decided that the website was not worth my time and closed my account soon after.
