Zoosk Review | Zoosk.com

In this Zoosk review we found out that the site went live in 2007, this means that the website is fairly new compared to the bigger dating sites like Match.com or Eharmony.com. But even though it is new, it has reported record profits in the last year. Another cool aspect is that this site integrates with social networks and even has an Iphone application you can use.

The first thing you will notice is that the website is very comforting. It is enjoyable and it looks friendly. They use a light blue color that really puts you at ease, does not overpower, and is very clean and easy on the eyes.

Zoosk.com is extremely simple to make use of and most of the features are accessible from the main page. Zoosk is also available in various languages and it is easy to switch to a different language from within the site.

You will start out by making a profile so you can get approached by other singles in your neighborhood.

Searching for singles in your area is easy and there are three different search views you can flip through. There is also an advanced search where you can specify what you are looking for, whether it comes to ethnicity, age, height etc. This is a standard feature of dating sites, but it is one of the most necessary features to use.

The FAQ can be accessed if you have any questions that have already been answered. If your answer you are searching for however isn’t available there’s a link in the footer you can click on that will lead you to Customer Support.

The policy that Zoosk had in the implemented in the past is that active members need to have a minimum of one profile photo. But they have done away with this rule. But of course this is highly recommended as it will increase your chances of getting what you want by tenfold. Nothing is more annoying than a dating website where most of the members do not have a profile picture.

Another disadvantage is that you cannot get in contact with an active member unless you are a paid member, but as an active member you can browse and see all the users that have signed up and are online.

The search uses your location to initiate searches which is fine; nevertheless, you can’t search for members outside of a 100 mile radius, which is extremely restrictive! Mind you this is effortlessly overcome by altering your own location, but truly shouldn’t be essential. Since Zoosk is one of the newer dating sites I would expect to be in total control over searching for singles in any location available. You can get around this by changing your zip code, but honestly that is just a hassle.

Zoosk.com lets you join for free and you can browse through their website, but there is a paid option available. The available fees at the moment for Zoosk are $12.49 per month for six months, $19.98 per month for 3 months or $29.95 for 1 month. Accounts paid by Paypal or credit card will most likely be renewed each pay period. Just keep in mind that Zoosk has a no refund policy. The amount you pay is not that much, but just keep that in mind when you opt to pay.
