What is Zoosk ?
Zoosk has been around for more than twelve years now and is one of the leading dating sites operating from over 80 countries across the world. With over 40 million members worldwide Zoosk has even been listed on the Wall Street Journal’s ‘The Next Big Thing’. It reiterates its position as one of the most preferred adult dating sites, consistently.
Zoosk takes international dating to an altogether different level without making it obvious that you are hooking up in a different country. Zoosk integrates your Social Media account like Facebook or your Google profile seamlessly into the site making things easier for everybody concerned. And with functionalities like ‘Dating Insights’ and ‘SmartPick’, Zoosk stands out from the crowd of dating sites and apps.
Zoosk is designed such that it gives its members a no-nonsense, straightforward experience. With a high degree of ease in its usability, even the uninitiated on dating platforms will find it a breeze going through the exceptional features.
There’s a menu on the left side featuring the ‘contact’ options and with the ‘subscription’ button below. Everything to do with your profile is under the settings button in the top bar. The notifications and chat icons are on the right side of the top bar. Design-wise it is minimal and could do with a bit of a makeover but the functionality is extraordinary.
Rather than asking their members to complete a personality test upfront, Zoosk’s Behavioral Matchmaking technology gets to know each member as they use the dating site. The matchmaking functionality SmartPick, makes use of the behavioral data the technology was able to gather and matches you with a user who they think would be perfect based on that. These data can be seen on the 'Dating Insights' page if you're curious about how the site sees your behavior on the website.
Signing up as a member is a simple process. You need to provide your gender, gender preference, date of birth a valid email, and your zip code. The site will not allow you to register over a VPN so you need to provide your zip code. Once done, you can activate the account by clicking the link sent to your email. You can access the account but with limited functionality. You may get those functions going too by verifying your phone or linking your social accounts such as Facebook or your Google profile. This lends additional credibility to your account.
You can have more premium features by going in for a paid membership. Options available are:
Why Zoosk ?
Zoosk is a dating site that is easy to use and the basic service is free. Once you sign up you can quickly see and get in touch with other members, and look for potential matches.

The site supports around 25 languages making it easier for people from different geographies to use the service. You may look for a short time relationship, vacation fling, or even a long-term relationship or a soulmate.
The average age of male and female profiles on Zoosk is 27 and 24 respectively and the split between the sexes is 48 and 52 percent each. Most dating sites have an overwhelming percentage of male members but on Zoosk, it is great to find an almost level playing field. Sexual preferences include gay and lesbian. Ethnicity is diverse and so are the religions and general backgrounds. Despite a large percentage of the members being inactive or non-existent, there are enough people out there from whom you can find a perfect match or more.
Customer Service and Security
Customer support on Zoosk is pretty good with the service being available in 25 different languages. Other than the FAQs, you can write to customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can expect an early resolution to your issues should you have any.
