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.

This site is a major scam. The user interface is so childish and hard to use and the members seem like seed members. They were either paid given free membership to make it look legitimate.
I have been on various dating sites over the past two years, varying costs/membership fees. Match.com after a year I only met one person who was a poor match. mate1 was full of frauds who were over the top expressing their love for me, told a story of woe (widower due to cancer or some tragedy or cheated on), then needing money to come visit. AYI suggested matches often not in my own province. I was pleasantly surprised to find someone local and a great match after being on Zoosk for only a week. We've been seeing one another nearly every day since we first met and seem to be on the same page in so many ways. It feels like we've known each other a lot longer. In short, keep looking. Relationships take work whether it's getting one or keeping one. One has to kiss a lot of frogs no matter what site you're looking on, before finding a prince. Good luck!
I was maybe one of the few real girls on zoosk!
And maybe this is why all the men were very rough with me. I didn't find anybody worthy of my time: horrible site!
Fake profiles, pushed profiles, and a few real profiles, and what seem to be a few professional professional profiles.
No responses despite being fairly assertive.
To start off, I will just tell you that I am probably one of the lucky ones that did find love on zoosk. I have to say that this site is not very user friendly. A lot of the profiles are fake but there are some real ones. Like most of the comments on here, the creators of zoosk are more interested in the money than actually helping you find true love. The fact that I did find a beautiful woman on this site was nothing short of a miracle. When I was searching for dating site, I searched independent reviews of all the sites but I think that the ones that gave this site good review are actually being payed by the site. After 6 months of actually examining this site and trying different things, my feelings is that this site is not worth spending your money on. My finding love was not really due to the site. It was being at the right place at the right time. Because if I hadn't answered her when she sent me a wink, there is no way that I could have found her again even if you know her profile name. A word to the wise.... " A Zoosk Member " = fake profile.
I am trying to figure out how to get OFF this crappy Zoosk site!
! Unless you want to pay lots of money you cannot meet anyone and need to buy "coins" to read or reply to messages, look at whole profiles or pics or accept chats... for 3 days I have tried posting "I am leaving Zoosk so please do not message me or waste your money trying to chat with me because I can't even see your messages" and whoever is approving ads deletes ALL that despite the fact it does not violate any written Zoosk rules...
In other word you have no right to free speech and you can't even say in your own profile you are leaving without that being deleted for no reason! I have met NOBODY here not even chatted to one in over 3 months... save your efforts for a site like POF, OKCupid or Meetme.com at least you have a chance there... once I leave Zoosk I will never waste my time there again!
Is this site fraudulent? I think so. If so can I get my money back from Facebook who allow them access.
Apparently myriads of women have agreed to meet me but to access them or their profile, I have to pay again. I suggest that not many people will like to do this and of course they lose their money. The question then is "Is ZOOSK offering the goods for which I have paid?" I suspect not and should FACEBOOK allow them advertising space and even allow them to access my email address after I made the initial contact even before subscribing
I am a recently widowed and just wanted to get out a little, not really expecting the next "love of my life" and not really wanting that just yet. I was just looking. Next thing, during one of my searches, a photo of this absolutely great looking guy sitting at a desk looking all professional comes up with a dating profile that any woman would think was perfect. Then when I received a "chat request" from him, well, I thought "could I be this lucky twice?" because my mate who had passed was the BEST! I immediately went to "chat" with this match, but then the subscription window came up. Thinking that I had to do this in order to "chat" with Mr. Perfect (LOL), I signed up for one month and sent him a message. I received NO RESPONSE (!?). Now, he sent the chat request, not me. But as soon as I PAID I got no response. Sent another message -- still no response. Go figure! I then saw on a review site that Zoosk sometimes uses employees as FAKE matches with fake profiles (most of whom are sitting at desks or beside a computer in an office setting) to entice someone to pay to chat!! I then sent a message to him to let him know I was on to that. HE ANSWERED THAT MESSAGE!!! He said that if he said it on his profile it was true. Yea. right. STAY AWAY FROM ZOOSK! They should be ashamed of themselves for hurting vulnerable people.
