#1 Dating App! Browse through photos of local singles, match with daters, and chat.
Zoosk is a hugely popular dating website with over 35 million members across more than 80 countries around the world. It provides its members with a customised dating experience by using advanced technology that greatly improves the success of its matchmaking system. This technology together with Zoosk’s extremely user-friendly interface makes it a true pleasure to use.
Zoosk has made joining the service very easy, with just a few steps in the sign-up procedure, and the process takes no more than a few minutes. First, you need to fill in a straightforward form with information such as your gender and preference, your date of birth, and your email address. Alternatively, if you have a Google or Facebook account then you can sign in using one of them.
The next step is to answer a few personal questions about things such as your body type, if you have children, your level of education and ethnicity. It will then ask about your height, your religion, and whether you are a smoker.
If you have signed in using Google or Facebook, it will take your profile picture from there and fill in various bits of information, such as your interests, based upon your profile. However, you can change all of these and add your own information, a short bio, and details about your perfect match and date.
You will be asked to verify your profile and there are a number of ways to do this, the most popular being by phone or photo. If you select photo verification then you will be given a few instructions that basically involve taking a few selfies which the site’s administration then verify. If you choose telephone verification, they will send you a special PIN via text message.
Zoosk is very easy to use and you will find that there are a few different ways for you to find potential matches. Each has its own benefits and which you use is entirely up to you. You can use the Profile Carousel, the Search function, and the Zoosk Scientific Matchmaking ServiceTM.
The Profile Carousel is essentially a display of potential matches that Zoosk’s Behavioural MatchmakingTM engine has found. The carousel allows you to quickly rotate through them and express an interest or dismiss them. The carousel is continuously updated as you provide Zoosk with more information about your preferences.
The Zoosk search functionality is very advanced and allows you to make use of a number of parameters. You can narrow down potential matches based upon factors such as lifestyle, age, religion, social habits, and location. For example, if you are looking for a non-smoker of your age who lives within your area, you can quickly and easily narrow down the results using those parameters.
The Zoosk Scientific Matchmaking ServiceTM sends out a daily recommendation known as the SmartPick. This is chosen based on messages, preferences, and use of the site. All that you need to do to be introduced to them is click on ‘Like’ and hope that they return the compliment.
Safety and security are essential for any dating service and Zoosk certainly does not neglect this area. A site representative checks every new sign-up to the service; they will verify the user’s identity using the methods listed above and go through the profile text to ensure that it is accurate. Users can further protect themselves by using the private browsing option. There is also a page dedicated to safety tips on the Zoosk website and they are well worth taking on board for those concerned about their safety. The tips include suggestions on how to create a safe profile, chat safely online, arrange to meet offline, and so on.
Zoosk offers a number of services free of charge. There are no sign-up costs and you can browse the profiles for free. However, if you want to communicate with other members, then you will need to subscribe to the site. Subscribing will also allow you to connect with SmartPickTM introductions, see who has been viewing your profile, and more.
In general, Zoosk offer subscriptions of six months, three month and one month, but from time to time they do run special offers that may be of different lengths. However, it is probably worth signing up for sixth months as it may well work out considerably cheaper in the end.
It is easy to see why Zoosk is considered a leading dating site. They work hard to give their members the best possible tools to find successful matches as quickly and easily as possible. The interface is brilliantly designed, as is the mobile app, and the pricing is very reasonable, especially for the longer subscriptions. All of this comes together to greatly increase the chances of members finding their Mr. or Mrs. Right.
