Not only can you set your preferences at signup, like sexual preferences such as lesbian, gay or straight, but members can refine their search based on age and location. Zoosk takes this one step further by letting members search in even more detail, such as relationship history, children, ethnicity, religion, education and body type.

How we met
by K8fishy on 2019/02/14 17:22
I met my husband on zoosk within 24hours of starting my membership. Yes there are a lot of creepers. But 2yrs of marriage and a beautiful baby girl are proof it works. ❤️

Hi, your site won’t let me deactivate my account after I deleted my subscription through iTunes. So I need you guys to fix that
NOT FREE!!!!!
by Pizza face guy on 2019/02/13 10:46
BEWARE!! Free to download app. NOT FREE TO USE!!!! They use your pictures to entice other users to pay for subscriptions. While doing the same to me. It’s a way of scamming you.
Do not waste your money
by EdyEmC on 2019/02/13 01:24
Don't waste your money on this app, this app should be removed from the app store. First of all, why would you keep charging a person that deleted the app? Isn't that stealing? It is sad that Apple allows companies like these to engaged in such activities. You are keeping my money, but I will sure leave you with a review you deserve. :) So I need to upload a picture in order to cancel my subscription? You instruct people to login on their mobile browser and look for a "Cancel My Subscription" option and the option is nowhere to be found? I need to download iTunes to be able to cancel my subscription? How is this even allowed? I have been a Software Developer for 5 years and to know that Software companies do this kind of things to its users is a shame.
What

My account got blocked after using it and I didn’t even do anything...
Horrible
by Brtsmerka on 2019/02/12 05:04
The advertisement for the subscription is horrible. I was under the impression I was paying 12.50 a month. Charged me 74.99 up front for the 6 month subscription and you don’t offer a refund? That is horrible customer service I’m never using your app again. My account is deactivated and I will be calling customer service as soon as the open.
Double Standard
by Firebrand2 on 2019/02/12 00:44
I’m sorry but I have to call this site out for something. I am a male user. The site (or one of its moderators) removed a photo of me with a firearm. I researched the policies to find out why. Turns out, Zoosk has a “no weapons” policy like so many other dating apps do. I’m like: “fine, you’re a private company and you can do what you want.” That was my thinking until... I see photos of female users with firearms. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say the rules aren’t being applied equally. Zoosk, you’re certainly not the only company to have this policy; but it really doesn’t make much sense. I don’t have access to your statistics, but I would bet that men spend more money on your site (or any dating site) than women do. If you’re not going to apply the rules even-handedly, could you at least — oh, I don’t know — throw a bone to the demographic that actually pays for your service?
Horrible site - all about nickel and dime’ing u
by Inc lwyr on 2019/02/11 13:48
I have added my search criteria 100 times in this site since I’m seeking someone between 21 and 31 who is slim to athletic since I’m very active. Every single “match” is a older woman who places “curvy” as her body type which means she’s over 200lbs. Also I placed my search for a 10 mile radius around me yet it’s sending me folks over 300 miles away to my inbox constantly. When you do finally connect with someone they all seem to want to chat online for weeks before talking on the phone. I cancelled my membership
Decent, but ok
by luvsoccr on 2019/02/11 05:33
Just like any other site out there, doesn’t really having a matching algorithm or anything. Like an upgraded tinder, almost. It’s frustrating though because response times can take awhile, as well as receiving messages. Need to do better with notifications because they are only received intermittently. Not really the best app I’ve ever been on.
Stop refreshing and give more distance options
by cboxgo69 on 2019/02/11 04:40
I hate how this app refreshes and shows “recommended” instead of the saved search I was looking at. Also, zoosk doesn’t give you the ability to select distance to a specific mile value... you get options like 5, 20, 50... I can’t see people within 25 miles without selected people 50 miles away. Every other dating app allows selection on a scrolling range... these two annoyances are making me reconsider paying for the service any longer.
If I could give no stars I would!
by peachykpk on 2019/02/10 14:09
I have used Match and Bumble as dating venues, Zoosk is by far the worse. They are all a lot of work but Zoosk has the lowest quality men. I received a lot of messages but the people that did meet what I was looking for always lived at the least 150 miles away and for me it is not ideal to date someone that far away. There are many men that have not verified their photos - to me this means they are not real and raises the question did Zoosk create profiles just to add to their pool of people. This site is not worth the time and money! Spare yourself!
The worst dating app ever
by BbBen on 2019/02/10 12:48
1. No filter whatsoever, you gotta clean up a lot of garbage messages that are not even messages before you get to someone somewhat potential 2. By simply viewing a search page, it marks about every displayed profile as viewed, providing a perception to other profile holders and making them think you’re interested. Which then creates more need to clean up unwanted calls for attention 3. No privacy-as soon as you log in, everyone and their mother is messaging you, match or no match... annoying. Makes you close the app within seconds 4. When someone emails you the display of their picture is so small yet before you can respond the app wants you to decide if you like them, how could one tell based on a smiley face sticker and 1/4”sq sticker? 5. Smart pick section too, super small print and very little pictures to see, and you should decide if you’d like to match up... can go on... just not worth $35/month For that money the site should be better organized with algorithmic filters that would get you closer to what you’re looking for. IMO Whoever is running this site is a fief.
The app is not good
by iosonomestesso on 2019/02/10 09:13
While I like zoosk the app is not as good as the website. It doesn’t accept my user and password so I can’t use it and I have to use the website version, very bad

First time writing an app review because how bad this app is.
by sbowuognavyao on 2019/02/09 23:24
Poor quality of men here. Set my search requirement. But shows me same guys that that not fit my requirement ( education. Distance, height) seems like there’s overwhelming a amount uneducated men here. And a lot of construction workers. Wonder why ?
Don’t start a relationship with this app....,
by Misgrace96 on 2019/02/09 03:42
It will take an act of Congress to deactivate your account. And you will have to have access to an actual desktop computer to do it. It will not allow you to deactivate your account from the app.
You have to pay for everything
by !$Jon$! on 2019/02/09 02:39
Want to talk to people? Gotta Pay Accidentally swiped left on someone you thought was a match? Gotta Pay Ads LOTS of ads Surprised deleting my account didn’t cost me money. Don’t even deserve that one star to be honest
I found the one
by ~jassi~ on 2019/02/09 00:55
Before I tried Zoosk, I had tried everything else and wasn’t having much success. I finally tried zoosk and will admit I had the most success here. I finally met the woman of my dreams and we have been dating for almost 7 months now. The app was easy to use and customer service was great when needed. I have recommended zoosk to a lot of my friends as well and will continue to do so. Thanks zoosk for helping me meet the love of my life.
Zoosk gets 2 thumbs up
by jLondon7 on 2019/02/08 12:27
I have to totally disagree with Zoosk on the take. You can view all messages and profiles with your paid subscription whichever you choose. I wanted to test the waters so I opted for one month. I believe the extra charge for everyone to see you and message you. Is more for the ppl who have not paid and they can’t see or message everyone. So that will allow the non subscribers to reach you. It’s a lot of good men with great work history and excellent retirement plans. Aka good jobs.... 😁 80 percent caucasians. 20 percent African Americans and one % Asians. A lot of construction workers on this site. It’s true a lot of people don’t take the time to pick a good name and fully commit to writing a story. That means they’re not looking for quality just quantity. So you just pass on certain profiles. I really enjoyed the site. I met a few special men on Zoosk. So I give it a thumbs up
Horrible app concept
by Watching nothing. on 2019/02/07 00:31
In the carousel you have to say yes or no based off of one picture and the age. No distance or ability to look at a profile before saying yes or no. Matches will end up being 200+ miles away in different states. But you cannot go back to the other “yes votes” and send them a message just 1 out of 100 they match you with. This is a horrible app and setup.
Subscribing
by Mr Bitz on 2019/02/06 21:31
You literally have to subscribe for everything. I’m sorry, but I’m just not paying for a service like this. Seeing who liked you, sending messages, receiving messages, etc. all require a subscription. Seriously? You can’t even read or send messages for free? Zoosk needs to catch up to ever other dating app out there that only charges for boosts and things of that nature.
Fake accounts
by Hman00061 on 2019/02/06 21:13
Simply a terrible experience and waste of money. Had several people “like, wink or show interest” but after I reply they simply disappeared. Had several people say they want to meet me - but there no way to contact them. What’s the point of someone saying they want to meet but you can’t contact them?? I’ve been using apps like this and they are all a waste of money and time. Very few real accounts. Not sure if Zoosk knows and it’s a scam to get money or they are an unaware? Either way I’m canceling my membership and I’ve learned my lesson!
It does not allow you to sign up
by Hshdkc on 2019/02/06 19:38
I downloaded the app and have been trying to set it up. It asks for my zip code or city. I enter it and it tells me it can’t be found. There is no way to go back or move forward. I have tried every major city. I have tried closing and re-opening the app. If this company doesn’t have the ability to match me to a major city or zip code, I have zero confidence in it being able to match me to a person.
Not free

by Ilyvanillysilly on 2019/02/05 05:07
This app was a waste of my time downloading its trash. How come after u match with someone you have to pay to send them a message ? What’s the point of the app then? Don’t waste your time everything is an annoying up charge.
Sneaky prices
by fall19 on 2019/02/05 02:26
I have personally tried other dating apps and this is one I would never pay for. I’ve had it for two days and did not intend to make a purchase, more so when I wasn’t even sure it would be one that I personally would like. Anyway accidentally made my purchase for 6 months, and now I can’t seem to get a refund. They really do get you with these prices. Also the app seems to keep matching me with others out of state or over 1000 miles away. It is also not matching me with my age group preference. I don’t like this app, nor do I recommend it, be careful when viewing their subscriptions.
Money scam try something else
by realnews7777 on 2019/02/04 09:24
So i was roped into a membership also. Money,Money,Money. I’ve used pof in past with fantastic results compared to this. Averaging about 1 date a week. With zoosk not 1 date in three months. Then right after my membership expires (next day) magically all these beautiful women are interested in my profile which is hilarious because There’s no pictures on it anymore and hasn’t been for the last 30 days. You guys are dirty,dirty,dirty. Karma will catch up eventually while you are swimming in all that money and I pray I see you exposed on the news someday.
Absolutely worthless
by tactics2337 on 2019/02/04 07:05
I’m a good looking, fit, guy with a six figure income. I paid for the premium membership and sent out probably 100 messages and didn’t get a single response. I’m convinced that most of the profiles are either fake, or have long since been abandoned. Scam.
Terrible in every way
by BIGBOSSCLANTON on 2019/02/04 05:39
Account was hacked and they took my money and referred me to some legal email. They are all about money, have terrible customer service, and I highly recommend you do not waste your money on this app.
This app is so frustrating
by deeboo1980 on 2019/02/03 02:49
I have tried a bunch of different apps and this is by far the most confusing and annoying one for me. First off I am getting guys older than what my requirement is and the distance is far off too. I paid for an app that I most likely won’t find a connection because I’m hardly getting anyone in my requirements. Second it seems like the same people are constantly viewing my profile. I am not sure if that’s just a glitch or if the same people keep checking it. I can’t remove them if I don’t want to see them anymore. I am not sure what I am paying for...
Age

Zoosk
by Bobbie_McGee on 2019/01/30 13:02
Terrible app. Definitely don’t pay cause $150 later I still can’t get messages from people and they want me to pay more?? I emailed them to get money back and no response. Just know if you sign up for any plan they’ll charge you unless you go into apps and shut off payment. Worst idea ever to pay any amount of money for this.
Seriously?
by TheAzzurri on 2019/01/29 18:59

Won't let you unsubscribe from the site, won't let you from I tubes either. Cannot change auto renew from the app. DO NOT GET IT!!! They refuse to refund either and it's impossible to contact any one. Bunch of thieves.
Fake views and probably fake members
by Cookng with Apps on 2019/01/28 02:13
Discovered this when deleting the long list of men I was not interested in. As soon as I deleted a few more supposedly popped up that viewed liked me or sent me a message. No way they many came up in a ten minute time frame. And in Spite of preferences set was constantly getting likes or messages from supposed members outside my search criteria. Waste of time. Had two guys worth meeting a couple of catfish. If you try the free version constant junk pops up in the screen ads and games.

Obstacles to Overcome on Zoosk
by JamesClown on 2019/01/25 07:06
1. Dead or still up but inactive profiles- no blue dot. 2. Massive amount of fake profiles. 3. Person you’re messaging may not be reading them, especially women because they’re using app for free. 3a. Every profile is “_____ is ready to chat” but Zoosk deceives and does not put a red light in place of green light for free users indicating other user cannot reply to your messages. Zoosk, clean up your app Verdict: Guys it’s not worth the money. Too much work to find real, active profiles. Zoosk needs to make it easier for paying customers to find chat ready users on it’s app. Free version is worthless, so pass on Zoosk.

A lot of Scam
by Reflex117 on 2019/01/24 23:44
I have been on zoosk for 2 weeks and have gotten at least 2-3 fake accounts with people out of the country or some offering to get off the site and email instead so they can offer stuff Most accounts of users that are not even on zoosk ever. You send likes and messages into abyss, what good is a website with a TON of none active users. Bravo....
Don’t waste your time
by yo baby's dady on 2019/01/24 12:07
This app is the biggest rip off I have seen on the app store to date. It’s a dating app that will at the very MOST let you like people and see that someone liked you.... unless you pay a monthly fee. You can not so much as send a message to someone without paying a fee. Do not waste your time with this.

Garbage dating app
by flyfisher3031 on 2019/01/24 03:14
Wish I could give this review no stars, first of all after you pay for a membership you have to pay for every other feature which are the only ways you seem to get any matches. Second there are hardly any profiles near Washington or at least any that are actually active and not bots... do not waste your time with this app it’s absolute garbage and the staff brush aside complaints like it’s no big deal, they’re just after the money so don’t waste your money like I did.
Worthless dating app
by Weather buggy....I mean buggy on 2019/01/23 22:49
Zero stars if I could. Don’t waste your time, money or effort on the Zoosk app. This is by far the most dysfunctional dating app that I’ve ever used. You can’t view a profile if someone wants to meet you. You simply have to choose yes or no based on their first photo (which may or may not be centered) and you don’t even get to see how far away they live. Useless. Things are only slightly better with Smartpick, you can barely see their pictures because they are now just part summary page and look more like a thumbnail (and of course you can’t zoom in.) What makes it completely useless is that support is pretty much nonexistent. After I asked my 2nd question, I felt like they either have software reading your questions and answering them or people who have only the slightest grasp of the English language. Either way, this app has proven to me that it is worthless.
Disappointed.
by ntonio86 on 2019/01/23 13:14
It’s a waste of time and money. They advertise that you can do this and that. While trying to chat with people you can’t because most of the people there don’t have an account. You have to pay in order to chat with people. Then when you pay for. Package of 6 months they end up charging you another 6 months after your 6 months are done even though you only paid for 6 months.
Stay away for multiple reasons: privacy concerns
by Garnet2828! on 2019/01/21 19:38
I have attempted to give zoosk the benefit of the doubt based on the reviews however I can not advise more to stay away. First, customer support is brutal. I have been receiving numerous messages from men stating thank you for viewing them or contacting them in one way or another. I have not. I did not view these men, reach out, accidentally look at their profile etc. This occurred over and over. I sent an email to Zoosk with my concerns and spoke to Cesar without any regard. I was concerned in the function of this site and with my privacy as I never contacted or viewed these men. I was refused a refund both my Apple and Zoosk. The greater concern is that Zoosk had not care for how I was concerned about this functionality. I would never recommend this site and if you are concerned about your privacy in any way. Customer support is awful as well.
Better than other apps, barely
by TCA151 on 2019/01/21 18:04
First dating app I’ve tried that actually had very few fake profiles, scammers & prostitutes. Be aware that developers review ALL profile stories and any edits you make - they will make changes if they don’t like what you write (removing not just profanity & any sexual comments, but also anything that remotely criticizes Zoosk or online dating in general. Don’t dare say that online dating is hard or frustrating). For a guy, the biggest problem is women who do not respond to messages. This app lets you see when anyone views you - even when they keep coming back to see you over and over. But, the lack of engagement from the women is much worse than many other apps. It’s like a lame middle school dance with everyone staring at each other from across the gym! The ladies’ stories all say that they are seeking a guy, but that’s hard to do if you don’t have the guts to exchange a few text messages in the app. I lasted about a month & finally gave up. Hope you have better luck!
Terrible
by travirca on 2019/01/21 15:56
If you don’t pay you don’t get to match, I just got a match from someone 2 miles away, very pretty and I can’t respond unless I pay, this app is really trash
Pay to message

Yep, just to say hi. That’s dumb. I’d rather have ads.
Horrible site!
by Jsaxinnd on 2019/01/21 13:03
This is the second or even maybe the third time I have tried this site. I am really tired of the false viewing notifications it gives. I have had in one case one lady that lives locally and she seems to view my several times a day and yet never says boo to me in a message. I do not like the false profiles this site has. I feel this site does a whole lot to give someone false hopes. And their "security" screening is a joke. I have received SEVERAL "views" with pictures of women that say they are, for example, end of their late 50s or early 60s and there are pictures show a lady, or should I say a girl, there can't be any older than 30. And then on top of that the picture shows a telephone number and says text me at such and such a number. And I say something with a somewhat negative tone and they won't approve it. So don't waste your money here.
Joke lying zoosk
by 5088323552 on 2019/01/21 03:02
My job makes to where I don’t get too meet women. So I decided too try this app. This site on its own starts showing women are viewing your profile. Ok well if you can get these women too answer they ALL said they never seen your profile. This happens multiple times every day. So zoosk pimps out women’s profile saying they viewed you and they NEVER KNEW YOU HAD A PROFILE.
Save your time... and more importantly, your money
by cueball83081 on 2019/01/21 00:00
I fell victim to this “pay to play” trap. They even show off fake profiles to hook you in and as soon as you get your membership, all the shiny trinkets are long gone. Really sad that so many people, myself included, have been taken advantage of and helped this company become filthy rich.
Don’t even bother
by Grotto agin on 2019/01/20 22:00
After 2 months on this site I received only one message, honestly it wasn’t even worth responding to likes are never responded to and not worth the $$$ they try and ROB YOU of and that’s putting it nice I rarely see a decent profile that makes me interested in even sending messages and the matches they gave me were horrendous. Do your self a favor don’t bother.
Bad feeling.
by James and my butler Austin on 2019/01/20 12:10
I was not on this app more then 5 mins and I was getting a bad vibe from it and after seeing some of the other reviewers I would not go to this app but that is just my honest opinion.
Your company deserves no ratings but is zero get me off this site I’ve been trying for eight months
by judy headrick on 2019/01/18 21:05
I have replied several times to be off of this site I unsubscribed almost 8 months ago and I’m starting to get text from people on Zoosk and now today I got a text from someone that said I would not believe what you’ve done to my pictures if I have to get an attorney I will I want myself off of your site !!!!
Dollars and Cents is the apps MO
by Firstbiteoftheapple on 2019/01/18 17:27
This app is less interested in you meeting people to date and MORE interested in luring you into purchasing a membership (that many complain is difficult to cancel or stop the automatic subscription) then charging you to message anyone you might want to get to know! I did read warnings and reviews on the internet prior to using the app. I really thought about how the app developers make money and hoped others experiences wouldn’t be my experience. I was mistaken. I’m convinced that meeting people the old fashioned way is far cheaper and less frustrating. The app is not “user friendly.” You can message people after paying for message package and the app doesn’t allow you to see the messages of all members whether they have a paid membership or are on a free trial. The app uses internal data to prevent you from making contact with an intended. They dangle a carrot in front of you then they want you to pay for tokens, message packages and Zoosk emojis to “try” to get in touch with someone’s profile. I’ll allow my current membership to expire and my message package and will not be using this app again. Thanks to all the other people who wrote a review and expressed their disdain for the app. Beware of using this Zoosk app is all I can say. Anything that sounds too good to be true is in this case!!!
If you don’t pay you just give all your info and time for nothing
by Chad1231234574 on 2019/01/18 01:00
You can’t do anything until you give them money. Misleading by saying in app purchases. Should say you can use it unless you pay. They just farm info I think
Horrible App
by Her55r on 2019/01/17 06:12
Doesn’t work well. They love to take your money and then ask you to pay for more things to be able to talk with people. Waste of time and money.
The worst of the worst
by hereiznoy on 2019/01/17 00:04
This is probably the worst dating app I’ve used. They send a ton of emails. “So and so” is interested. Click the link. *Maybe* be linked to the stupid carousel and see a single pic of the interested party. Spend 15 minutes of your precious time swiping left/right/ middle through a HUNDRED profiles. Or maybe... you get linked to the carousel starting with a completely random person and think to self, how did I screw up clicking a link? See a profile you like? Good luck figuring out to actually “like” it. Oops! I just sent a message with a stupid heart emoji. Or if you’re lucky...a stupid smiley emoji. But then you get a reply! And you craft a super witty bit of repartee. Whoops! Turns out it was an auto reply. Look, if you held a Nerf to my head I could come up with some redeeming qualities of this here app. But there are much, much better options that are worth your time. These guys took $30 of my hard earned dollars. Don’t let them do the same to you.
System issues and more subscription choices.
by Hong Kong glitch on 2019/01/17 00:04
Recently my session expired but I just got a message from one person but now I can’t reply. I’m not sure if I want to pay again fir the time being as my luck has been good, but I don’t want to leave that person hanging without explanation as to why I’m not interested. Wish you’d have maybe just a week or two week test trial to choose from. So I could st]et some things in order before I take .a break
This app is trash
by Sabrina26317 on 2019/01/16 22:44
This dating app is trash not only do you have to pay a membership fee but when you are gifted items you can’t do anything with them you can’t take them off redeem them NOTHING so when people PAY ACTUAL MONEY FOR THESE GIFTS THEY SHOULD GET THEM not the other people gift items pay money for these gifts and nothing happens you can’t redeem the items or nothing so don’t go wasting your money on the gifting system because ITS POINTLESS!!!! AND A WASTE OF MONEY!!!!!😡🚮if you want a good quality dating app save your money and go to a different site!!!!
Lol

Garbage,going back to tinder
A lot of fake/filler profiles! Nickel & dimes you!
by Dust T on 2019/01/16 18:02
There is a lot of fake profiles and scammer type profiles as well! If their photos are unverified it’s a fake profile 100% of the time. They need to make a search filter for verified photos only. This app squeezes every dime they can from you. I paid 30 dollars for 1 month so I could write people messages turns out only paid members can reply. They charge you and extra 10 dollar for people to be able to reply. There’s also a whole bunch of other micro transactions. Stick to tender, bumble, okcupid & POF.
This site probably

by ohheykate on 2019/01/15 04:41
I think it absolutely ridiculous the prices of the subscriptions. Why so expensive? Honestly, I would never pay that much money to meet someone online. “Zoosk” should really think about at least letting you message people. I think it’s a scam and they are just trying to take your money.
Deceptive tactics and fake profiles
by IIH QMHP on 2019/01/15 00:37
1) Fake “you’ve been viewed” notifications. Have to sign up for paid subscription to see. When you look at your “viewed” tab, you’ll see that those profiles are not there. 2) Fake profiles to make you think there are potentials dates in your area to entice you to sign up for paid subscription. 3) As you “smile” or “heart” fake profile, the profile will send you a computer generated message and you will receive notification. To read the message you have to sign up for the paid subscription. 4) Fake messages. The messages all say: “Hi, if you want to chat with me send me a message.” “Hi, thanks for the greeting. What are you up to right now?” “Thanks for the greeting but I prefer messages.” And “If you location isn’t (it inserts your location) than I will not likely respond.” 5) If you ask for a refund, they will ignore your email.
Waste of money
by eh517 on 2019/01/14 10:19
There are plenty of free apps that you can use that are 100% better than this one. For one, you can send as many messages as you want but don’t hold your breath that anyone will respond Bc you have to pay $30 to read you messages for a month! For all you know you are being rejected for the simple fact the people you are messaging aren’t being read. For second unless you live in a very large city your options of matched are slim to none. You can select filters so you only see what you are looking for but if you restrict your distance less than 100 miles good luck finding anyone decent. This app is a joke!
Awful
by very disapointed10 on 2019/01/14 02:11
Terrible dating service, the men on the site look and look but won’t talk to you or even respond .... what a waste of time and money 😡😡😡
Racket!
by BigPHX on 2019/01/13 19:56
Good features but it’s a racket! You pay $30 a month for what? Unlimited swipes but no one can message for free. So even though you signed up and can send messages they can’t message you back unless they have subscribed. But wait there’s more, if you pay $10 more, anyone can message you back! Oh and if you want the other features you can pay $8-10 more for each feature... come on now. Better off using Some other app with flat subscription coast for all features. Update! You don’t get unlimited swipes! WTH did I just pay $30 for?! Nothing, I got absolutely nothing for $30.00. Trust me I. This one save your money and go to another app like Tinder were you get actual features when you sign up. This is garbage! Update: They edit your profile. If they don’t like what’s in your profile, regardless if it’s not vulgar or offensive, they will edit it out. Who the hell are these people? Literally the worst dating app on the market. Save your money. I cancels after 3 days.
Another “pay to read this message” app that claims it’s free
by Kuroneko123 on 2019/01/13 16:52
One of the worst dating apps I’ve seen since using them. People can message you and you can respond but in order to reply you need to “upgrade” for a ridiculous fee. More dating apps should allow messaging and actual dating instead of deterring actual people in need of love.
One sided.
by LilAznMnkee on 2019/01/13 15:56
Totally one sided. You can like whoever you want, but in the end, you get nothing. :(
A trial is needed
by The killer011 on 2019/01/13 08:36
I only used it for 5 minutes and I felt scammed. Other than liking or loving a profile nothing else is free. I wasn’t even allowed to read a message. You should give your “new members” a chance to experience the app for at the very least 3 days or it shouldn’t be free to download the app. I mean; what’s the point of downloading the app for free if you can’t even experience a single conversation? I once used the POF app. There were so many members who will create an account just so they invite to join their private website. Give us the chance to like that way after 3 days the only we can stay in touch with other members or make more connections will be through premium membership
Frustrating
by Orio1041 on 2019/01/13 03:12
Having to pay to chat puts this dating app far behind the rest
Wow, good way to take your money lol!
by MrtookYoGurl on 2019/01/13 02:35
App is a complete waste of time, & will take your hard earned money. Crazy the App Store would even let them keep this app up, nobody ever replies, you pay 30$ for subscription well, pay 10$ more to guarantee girls will reply to you, what’s next? 12.99 guarantee girl will wake up next to you guaranteed. Haha
Money Trap
by Jesse657hays? on 2019/01/12 23:02
This app is just preying on desperate people. You can’t even message without paying. If you just want to try for one month it’s 30 dollars. It’s a complete rip off. Use bumble, tinder, or hinge if you want something reasonable. I would rate it zero stars if I was allowed.
Ads

Zoosk App

Don’t get this one.
by The Monday Man on 2019/01/12 00:52
It’s all about them getting every dollar out of you. After you get the your basic $. Plan Then there will be numerous other fees! They jump in and ask if you want to give them flowers which cost more money Once you get you to the page to buy something -/it’s really hard to find the exit button? Then try to get your money back I got out in 24 hours and they say you, you’ll get you money back with 3 days. I’m still waiting to see. Mike Beche. 818 6249086 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Zoosk-On the Take
by Octoset on 2018/08/11 17:52
You’ve heard about or even experienced yourself those kind of relationships that one side just takes while the other side gives. That’s how I would describe using the Zoosk app. It’s total relationship goal is to squeeze every dime from your pocket while it gives ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in return. Once they scam you out of a membership( that you willingly do) they proceed with a menu of other additional things they will allow you know- for an additional cost of course like ALLOW your messages to be read by anyone you send them to. WHAT?! So only certain people that you message can read what you sent unless I pay an additional fee ? Oh, and if you want to know if someone even read your message then, you guessed it, pay up for that too. Maybe it’s just me, but that’s not the way to invest into a better relationship. I will have to say that I did like the way they encouraged people to authenticate themselves with their photos, other social pages, their phone number and even military history. I’m glad they didn’t make you pay for that ( and I did use). Lastly, many of the males didn’t even bother putting any effort into their profiles. Their pics were unclear, didn’t bother to introduce themselves or even pick a more original user name than “Zoosk User”. I realize that isn’t Zoosk’s responsibility but, I did factor that in when deciding to remain , which I didn’t even before my paid membership was expired.
Zoosk is legit !
by Intellipod on 2019/01/06 20:10
First of all, I’d like to state right-off I have not had one date yet through Zoosk. Why may you say am I giving them 5 stars, and calling them legit? Well, it’s because I have been going through these dating apps and services for over twenty plus years. I know what a ripoff is. This site has given me more return views/smiles in one week then some of the other “big” guys gave me in upwards of a decade. No kidding!!!! Also, I uploaded a picture (which some might consider) questionable. Zoosk would not verify it! I thought to myself, ok, this is BS there was no reason to not verify that picture because it is 100% clean. I gave it some Aurora treatment, initially, so I thought ok I’ll send up the original pic, and if that doesn’t work then I’ll upload another...and another until my membership expires and cancel my membership. Well, I uploaded the original pic—NO EFFECTS, and they approved it!! That was a surprise to say the least. Don’t know if my bad luck dating will ever change...not likely, but because Zoosk is obviously run by human beings I might just stay with them for awhile. BTW: I’m not...repeat NOT looking for any favors...doubt they would come my way anyway.
Complete rip.
by Erdill355 on 2018/07/02 22:09
I normally don't write reviews but I really haven't had much luck on this site. I have had more responses from dating sites like POF. I have a match membership as well. Getting back to zoosk. When I first signed up in 2013, you could browse and at least view members. Hey you even got to write a message. But come on man, paying to message? Let's be real here. St lest with a POF membership you know that you message was either read or deleted. Come on man, having to pay additional money to see if your message was read or not? Come one man, let's be real. If you don't get a reply, then either your message wasn't read or it got the ultimate delete. But how are you supposed to know if you don't pay? And not to mention that zoosk is one of the top money making dating sites? I would say so with all the additional crap that they sell. Buy coins, blah. Buy boost, blah. Buy hide, blah. And hardly anyone messages back on this site. So why bother spending your hard earned money here? Go to a strip bar at least there you'll get a nice rise out of something and not butthurt like this site. I really do like the layout, but previous versions were much nicer. End review. Oh and not to mention that I think either google or zoosk themselves created another account for me using my gmail. I only have one account using an aol email. I have never, ever wanted to create 2 zoosk profiles. I can only manage one account.
Dating app equivalent of a floating fly in your latte
by Nunyainct on 2018/08/11 12:35
This app is the internet equivalent of finding a floating fly in your latte. The carousel feature just sends you pictures where you have to make a split decision of yes no or maybe based on someone’s looks. You get a whopping zip as to interests or intellectual acumen. And, you cannot ignore the person and move onto the next. There is no way to search for someone based on their zoosk name. Equally awful is the encouragement of sending a heart or smile emoji. How on earth is that a message? Are we 12 years old? I’ve met a few people on the site who told me they figured out emojis or a short message were not sent by them but receive other people. The only good thing I can say about the app is that if you’re busy, it’s at least sticking your toe in the water to start going out on a few dates. And that being said, you need to meet the person right away the longer the texts drag out, the less likely you are to meet or the less likely the burger at the window looks anything like the burger on the display poster. Because of the awful carousel, inability to search people by name, I’d rate this app with zero stars if I could. I almost forgot the absurd coin options to hide your profile, see if a message was read and send a gift... zoosk should be renamed the internet dating site for socially awkward people who never matured past 12 years old....

Never again
by Nick2theNameNaysay on 2018/03/08 01:46
So, after using an app like this for the first time here’s what I’ve learned. It’s all an illusion and scam to make money. Some of these people are paid to message you and some of them apparently are automated messages. If they’re not being paid then hats off. Immediately after I deleted the account, I get a an email talking about someone that wants to have a good time. Nothing is to the point. Also, I don’t understand how the people who pay for these services and are popular don’t feel like garbage humans. You’re asked to like 40 different people who may or may not have anything in common with your or each other. In the real world, opposites attract and there could be one thing they have in common which sets things off. The beauty about a real world situation is that you figure that out on your own, rather than knowing it first hand. It then becomes a game for you to get in someone’s pants and possibly ruin their life. Honestly, I think these apps should be illegal. I don’t care what good could or did come from these apps. That doesn’t mean they can do as they please charging a person just to talk with someone which you could do for free with other apps or by simply having their number. Anyway that’s my review and opinion about this and similar apps. You do you.
It’s an app and nothing is guaranteed in real life...
by samantha112369 on 2018/03/20 01:24
I read review where someone was complaining so much about what was wrong with this app. Everything you have to take with a grain of salt. There are millions of people who want to meet someone and there is a probability that you will meet someone that is close to what you’re looking for. With that said you may have to kiss a few frogs before you find your close to being a prince, no one is perfect. Being selective and being open are two things that go hand-in-hand when getting on any dating site they’re all an algorithm. And if you understand that then you know what you’re getting yourself into. I have had no issues I have met some wonderful people... have any of them then my match no and I’m OK with that it’s giving me an opportunity to find out what I can and cannot live with at this point my life. At the same time I have met some very nice people. I have no horror stories for anyone because nothing is guaranteed in life. I wish everyone well and don’t take this seriously until you meet someone you want to be serious with and remember it takes two people to commit.
Not Impressed
by Sunshine State 2018 on 2018/07/12 13:32
I have found if u like trying to make contact with people 900 miles away for a relationship... This site maybe exactly what u r looking for. Even when it states photos r verified, I have found this not to true. A lot of fake profiles too. I noticed more of the "attractive" people were either never married or widowers or had "just recently" relocated to the area. Kinda strange... The other review about this site constantly trying to upcharge u for different things that should be a given (knowing if someone has read ur message to them) is ridiculous! Plus when u try to filter the site to now it down to more of what u r looking for, the filter constantly changes back to no filter. The carousel search is another big waste of time with the site deciding who is ur best match without taking anything into consideration. BIG waste of money and time. I would recommend Match (one of my friends had great success with that site), or even Ourtime. Definitely not this site, unless u just need ur ego pumped up with fake pics, profiles, and responses. FaceTime or video chat with ur contact to find out if they r real. That is exactly how I learned this site is only about 35% real!
Worst dating site yet!!
by Raineygirl on 2018/05/23 12:52
I thought I’d take a chance and see how this site was like. I don’t like it at all. First of all, I think it’s deceiving because it’ll send you a notification that “someone” sent you a message. So, when you go to the site, you see that maybe it was just someone who viewed you...no message. The reason they probably viewed is because this site has a way of getting you to view people and then notifying them that “you” viewed them...which prompts them to go see who viewed them...which prompts another message to you that someone messaged you. Like a domino effect. Like someone else said, the carousel part of this site is just plain dumb. It asks you to either say Yes, No, or Maybe. The yes and maybe answer will definitely match you up with them. Now mind you, you don’t even have a clue as to where they live so they could be 100...or 1000 miles away!!! Plus, they could be midgets or gigantic! I think that part of this is so wrong. After all, a face is just a face! Before I say I like someone or not...I need to see or know a little more about them. So, that is very misleading to me. Hope they change some things or else, bad publicity will cause them to lose or not make any money.
Carousel BS
by Saychef on 2018/06/26 17:46
This Ap is set up more like a board game than a site offering information about possible matches. Why can’t you just show names/photos/ interests to all those who fit your age, location and brief description? I lost $7k to another site to an internet love scammer. Don’t think you could be fooled by these folks? These people are pros and know every angle to charm you into their trap. Make sure you can talk and see the person. Don’t fall for the “ due to high security crap” and as soon as the request for money comes up- RUN. Watch for grammatical errors as well. Another red flag there. UN ambassadors and chaplains have more important things to do then fly to Gahna and Nigeria. Western union and some Walmart’s won’t even deliver there. Don’t wind up like I did- a very gullable, foolish and now $5K debt. My family will not even speak to me. PS- military folk ready to retire have there accounts”sealed” so they can not access money until return to Us. True or not, I heard that deal twice. Second time I bowed out right before the $1K request came through. There were gold rewards for bravery and good deeds involved in both. Sad but there are many out there. They play you like a fiddle. Report to FBI but don’t count on anything!
Like a V-8 running on 4 cylinders
by Rancho Cowboy on 2018/05/09 21:47
I like many things about Zoosk. It’s one of the best dating sites. However, there are no line item questions about the miles I’m willing to travel nor the height of the female I seek, hence 80% of the choices I am sent are are a two hour drive or taller than I am comfortable with. I mentioned these preferences in my “story” but your staff does not have the time to read these many “stories” and adjust parameters accordingly. So obviously these variables need to be added to your line item questions. Next I am frustrated by your Smart Pick option. After being sent the results of my Smart Pick, I press the photo to find out the important information about my Pick, the picture disappears and a message pops up saying “no Smart Picks at this time, we will alert you when you have new Smart Picks”. I am sure I’m not the only person to be frustrated by this, and I would appreciate having the option to select information and potentially contact my new Smart Pick. Sincerely, Rancho Cowboy
Don’t bother! Skip this site!
by Alyssa-H93 on 2018/10/30 03:22
I honestly wish I could give zero stars because of how awful this site is. I initially didn’t pay for anything and wanted to see how it worked. Didn’t like how I couldn’t do much. So I paid for one month. Still hate it. I can do a little more but not much. Don’t get me started on the quality of picks. I get nothing but creepy men that are well in their 40’s and some in their 50’s asking to be my sugar daddy. I’ve had a few keep messaging me to give them a chance. So I had no other choice but to block them. If it’s not the age then they all live over 1,000 miles away! Not exaggerating! I have searched up and down to try and set a range like all other sites let you, and nothing. Can’t find where to do that. I’ve talked to a couple people on there but they can’t hold a conversation. I get views from profiles where I have to ask for a picture...pass! I can’t even view the profile pictures of the Smart Picks. It’s a tiny little box and I can’t see much. I would never recommend this site for anyone that wants to try online dating! I had better luck on Hinge and Bumble! Don’t waste your time and money!!😡🤬
Better than other apps, barely
by TCA151 on 2019/01/21 18:04
First dating app I’ve tried that actually had very few fake profiles, scammers & prostitutes. Be aware that developers review ALL profile stories and any edits you make - they will make changes if they don’t like what you write (removing not just profanity & any sexual comments, but also anything that remotely criticizes Zoosk or online dating in general. Don’t dare say that online dating is hard or frustrating). For a guy, the biggest problem is women who do not respond to messages. This app lets you see when anyone views you - even when they keep coming back to see you over and over. But, the lack of engagement from the women is much worse than many other apps. It’s like a lame middle school dance with everyone staring at each other from across the gym! The ladies’ stories all say that they are seeking a guy, but that’s hard to do if you don’t have the guts to exchange a few text messages in the app. I lasted about a month & finally gave up. Hope you have better luck!
Just give the people what they want!

Don’t like the “game” playing of the carousel- how do I know if I like someone when I can’t refer to their profile? Then if you like various people and put yes/maybe - zoosk chooses the final one and you either accept or reject...then have to start all over again!!! Really don’t have time for these games... very busy and just want it to be clear cut, give me people ONLY within the radius I ask for, and if I delete them I don’t want them to surface again!! It’s the same people over and over...whoever thought of this tortuous system? Time waster! People want to meet real qualified matches. If they are on there to play games and waste time for fun, they need to be weeded out somehow. I pay for my subscription but can’t tell if someone else just popped on for the night and is going to scam me or waste time. It has happened over and over. I don’t like being scammed right before a subscription renewal either!!! Seems suspect to me...just sayin’!! I hope you get it straightened out - there’s got to be a technology that can figure this out! Disgusted!
Zoosk gets 2 thumbs up
by jLondon7 on 2019/02/08 12:27
I have to totally disagree with Zoosk on the take. You can view all messages and profiles with your paid subscription whichever you choose. I wanted to test the waters so I opted for one month. I believe the extra charge for everyone to see you and message you. Is more for the ppl who have not paid and they can’t see or message everyone. So that will allow the non subscribers to reach you. It’s a lot of good men with great work history and excellent retirement plans. Aka good jobs.... 😁 80 percent caucasians. 20 percent African Americans and one % Asians. A lot of construction workers on this site. It’s true a lot of people don’t take the time to pick a good name and fully commit to writing a story. That means they’re not looking for quality just quantity. So you just pass on certain profiles. I really enjoyed the site. I met a few special men on Zoosk. So I give it a thumbs up
Stalkerish App
by JMS06010 on 2018/07/04 17:55
The developers need to fix the “viewed me” component of this app! It portrays individuals to be what one would define as a stalker the amount of times the app identifies how many times a day someone views you! It has happened to myself and others have reported the same issue! Men or women then believe you are interested and have messaged me to the point I have to block them! It is completely inaccurate and only makes any individual using the app look bad! You are supposed to be helping people find compatible matches not scaring them away! Finally, the app uses an algorithm based on individuals you state you are interested in?! I even have stated in my settings the age range (36-46) I am looking for! With that being said MOST of the matches the app sends me are of men 50 plus who live 100 miles away! These are not men who have viewed me or messaged me, these are men this app has specifically matched me with. How about you use the algorithm the way it is intended to be used for not only age but by distance! Is 100 miles away really realistic for the average person looking to date? I think not!
Unhappy customer
by Scrap grandma on 2018/10/01 19:54
This is The second time I’ve used this app and I am still very disappointed in what is on this website. A lot of these men are looking for a fantasy woman! Not the real deal.. Rather looking for love or a relationship we all have responsibilities that won’t go away because of a new relationship.. drama? No “Reality”!! The man on here don’t seem to care at all about the truthfulness of their appearance and age they need to have Up dated pictures and be honest with what or whom they are looking for. Went on a date with a man that took pot every morning a date with a man still pining for his deceased wife an alcoholic and one that wanted a mother. I feel this website is a joke not one person I have talk to or went to coffee or dinner with were caring for anything more than themselves! Or they just wanted someone to talk to/sex. On my profile it said within 60 miles and men only !!! nearly every one of the men were hundreds of miles away and numerous pictures of women!! Seriously Zoosk - you need to really work on your app 😡😡😡very very disappointed . Will NOT recommend or renew😡
Such a scam
by Letmesubmitadamnreview on 2017/12/16 14:05
I was just going to uninstall and forget this app, but then I got charged for something I did not agree to. With every subscription based service, no mater what it is, I always instantly cancel, Zoosk was no exception. The reason I don’t do this is so I can see how a service is before I agree to pay for more than an initial period. Obviously, I was less than impressed with Zoosk. Being disappointed, I deleted the app and tried to forget it. I, however was not able to do that. Instead, Zoosk charged me for a second period that should not have even been possible. When I contacted customer support, I got someone who told me that it’s my fault they charged me a second time, but at least I can use the service for the remainder of the month. Oh, I can also resubscribe at any time! I had contacted them not even a day after my nonexistent renewal date, obviously I would have gotten zero usage out of it by the time it had happened. I discourage using this service very highly. They don’t like to take no for an answer when canceling their service.
Awful experience
by Jives123 on 2017/10/19 01:47
I’ve tried my fair share of apps, and this one has really stood out as awful. For one, you literally can’t even get a sense for the other people on the app without purchasing a ridiculously expensive subscription ($30 for one month... or you could commit to 6 months for a lower per month price). You can make a profile and log on and see profiles, but you can’t receive or send messages as a part of the trial at all. As mentioned by others, the app matches you with people that specifically don’t meet criteria you’ve pre-selected, it doesn’t allow you to arrange your photos in any way, it doesn’t allow you to expand these tiny thumbnails of photos in the profiles of others in the match list they give you, and if you do the random profile thing, it literally shows you one picture and asks you whether you like the person. I’m sorry, is this tinder??? The interface is annoying and the app in general does not seem to be concerned with user experience whatsoever. I am incredibly disappointed in this app.
Worse online dating site/ STAY WAY!!
by Ziggy puppy on 2018/04/04 03:56
I would never recommend Zoosk to anyone. Please stay away from this site. This is by far the worst online dating site. I want to say that about 90% of the men are disgusting. You start talking with them and within days they want to have sex. Seriously? Then you try canceling the subscription from your phone and the actual website, mind you, you have to cancel twice. I didn’t care that I lost money. I just wanted to put this behind me. Then a month goes by and you get charged for the month. I reached out to a customer service rep and they make you feel like you’re an idiot and don’t know how to cancel. Really? Come on. Fine, so after days of going back and forth, Zoosk said they will only reimburse me half of my money and they cancelled me out. Ok, I thought this nightmare was over but no, I received an email this morning that my account was unpaused. I reached out to customer service and haven’t heard back or received my half refund. This site is a joke. Please stay away from it. Do not get caught up in their web.
Zoosk is fun!
by mbbarch on 2018/05/08 02:37
I don’t take to heart the previous reviews because this app is far superior to others where profiles are continuously hacked and truly fake messages are created. I have found Zoosk members to be courteous and thoughtful in their posts. It’s true that every app throws out lots of options for you, but it is when you Search with your own criteria that you have the most success. I think Carousel is loads of fun, it’s a light hearted way to be exposed to lots of nice people you might not have come across. And I have never had a false profile message sent to me! Other sites seem to have far less members so I will keep getting sent anyone around my age from my town, but that doesn’t happen to me on Zoosk. They have sent me men who are less educated than I like, but I have never been sent a woman, or men with characteristics I reject. And I have met some wonderful men!
Can’t search by member name.
by Steve clock fan on 2018/03/17 12:45
Zoosk frustrates me in that if you see someone you want to contact, and unless you send a message immediately to establish contact, there is no way to find their profile later using their Zoosk name. Even tech support says they have no way of locating a member’s profile using their Zoosk alias! Using Zoosk is somewhat like being in a hurricane with profiles flying by. Grab any that interest you right then because you can’t go back. Their “Search” button does not allow you to search for someone you saw. It just puts you back in their hurricane of profiles. Another issue is that some of their search modes ignore my preference settings. I specified a maximum distance of 20 miles, and most of their “matches” are hundreds of miles away, 1,500, 1,700 miles, etc. Zoosk, both of these issues can be solved with software updates. Are you listening to your customers?
Carousel tells you nothing
by wondering to continue on 2018/05/08 06:53
I agree with the previous subscriber that carousel does not take into affect any thing other than looks. That feature live strictly on narcissistic tendencies and some people are very narcissistic and somewhat dangerous . Am I responding and saying yes to somebody 2000 miles away? Do I know their age? You don’t know anything about them so why waste your time swiping quote yes quote on dozens of people and they’re not even in your area geographically. Sure you might hit a homerun with the long-distance thing but really you don’t want to get involved somebody outside of your driving requirements why even play Carousel? Granted I have but it’s not very productive or realistic in most cases. On those grounds alone I can anyone leaving the site. Secondly if you know a subscriber by screen name you can’t find them unless they’re in your account section that you’ve messaged them before. There’s no way to look somebody up that you might’ve seen before but did not message. There is no real depth to this site but it is simple.
ABSOLUTE WORST PAID APP
by Ericpoo on 2018/03/16 04:47
This is the worst thing that I’ve seen. Would if I could give zero stars. Their customer service completely missed the point when contacted, indicating that it was an issue with my “computer” and not their program. I paid for a subscription, but can only view profiles of other paid subscribers, meaning, if someone “likes” me and they’re not a paid subscriber, all I have to go on is one photo with absolutely no information but their age - no location, nothing about them whatsoever. Also, they decide what age range to send you - they “allow” you 6 “saved searches” but it will default to whatever age they decide you should be dating, and how far away they should live - in my case it happened to be 10 years older than me and apparently over 100 miles was appropriate and that just DOES NOT WORK FOR ME. Do not waste your money on this app. The free version of Plenty of Fish is SO MUCH BETTER. Or, if your just looking for a casual hookup Clover is great. Let me reiterate DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON ZOOSK.
Fake algorithm ? Bad system for matches, carousel is the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.??
by Fyouripoffpieceofshitapp on 2018/06/30 18:47
I as well got scammed into this app acouple times. The first time was because once the free ran out, Zoosk tricked me into staying by notifying me that I had messages. B.S., they were hearts and smiles... which mean nothing to anyone apparently ? The second was because Zoosk falsely says that someone is viewing you over and over again..( they are most Likely Not.. and if you try to Delete someone that is annoying or whatever, it notifies them that you viewed them and makes it worse when they think you’re interested, when you’re Not.. the App is Set up Very Poorly, it has not been amended at all. Zoosk has changed my profile statement, taking things out, adding from previous versions, outright changing it around so that I sound like some thing I am Not, it has happened numerous times until I threatened them with legal action... I simply want to me a nice woman that I’m attracted to is all. This app is a borderline scam !!
Satisfied
by Fantasylover on 2017/12/13 20:17
This site may not be perfect but it excels at the one key attribute. There are LOTS and LOTS of PAYING members. This means there are more quality ladies to connect with and VOLUME is where success lies, not fancy algorithms or filters. It shuffles the deck over and over so you don’t miss out on a hidden opportunity. Yes. You have to hand-filter out girls that are too old, too young, smoke, are unattractive in some way. Also, girls show up as have viewed your profile even when they’ve only thumbed past it. Still, it’s VOLUME you want. Just block the ones you’re tired of seeing and keep your eyes on the prize. For the uninitiated, note that the site DOES bait you before you pay with hotties that are either non-existent, non-paying, or real, and filters out the physically undesirables and Stepford wives. Happy hunting.
2 Stars is a gift
by d-scusted on 2018/11/02 00:34
Why can’t you have a trial period even if it’s 2 weeks so people don’t get sucked in to having to buy a subscription to view one message worthy of viewing? I thought Zoosk would be different but it’s the same BS. It’s not hard to find quality people as it is. And what is up with the ridiculous carousel and the site in general. Make your site inviting and give a little if you expect people to buy from you which is giving back and DON’T advertise a free site when it’s not free if the only way you can communicate with someone is to buy a subscription. I personally don’t like to invest in something I don’t get a return on. Give a little, get a lot. Be the BETTER site and erase your competition. I’ll sign back up when I can view and communicate for free without having to enter my credit card info for 14 days! And, you’ll get a much better review.
The worst of the worst
by hereiznoy on 2019/01/17 00:04
This is probably the worst dating app I’ve used. They send a ton of emails. “So and so” is interested. Click the link. *Maybe* be linked to the stupid carousel and see a single pic of the interested party. Spend 15 minutes of your precious time swiping left/right/ middle through a HUNDRED profiles. Or maybe... you get linked to the carousel starting with a completely random person and think to self, how did I screw up clicking a link? See a profile you like? Good luck figuring out to actually “like” it. Oops! I just sent a message with a stupid heart emoji. Or if you’re lucky...a stupid smiley emoji. But then you get a reply! And you craft a super witty bit of repartee. Whoops! Turns out it was an auto reply. Look, if you held a Nerf to my head I could come up with some redeeming qualities of this here app. But there are much, much better options that are worth your time. These guys took $30 of my hard earned dollars. Don’t let them do the same to you.
Not what it Says
by EmmatheGeek on 2018/06/21 19:36
So this app says it’s the number 1 dating site and I find that incredibly hard to believe. First of all, I answered their questionnaire and am being routinely matched with people outside of not only my chosen preferences but with people I’ve never even seen before. I’ll receive a notification very rarely for this app though my notifications settings says I should be getting them. This app also allows people to continue sending you messages even after you have chosen the option to remove their chat permission. I also don’t like the fact that the carousel option gives you a picture a picture and an age and then you are supposed to say Yes, No, or Maybe. These matches are routinely outside of my set search parameters. I’m completely disappointed in this app and will probably be deleting it as soon as my set subscription runs out.
Nurse
by cedeness on 2017/10/22 11:44
Over 7 years I have tried virtually every online dating service with marginal success. Suffice to say no lasting relationships as a factor of the amount of fees paid. I’ve been on this site for 2 weeks. I have seen some of the most attractive women that I have seen in my entire searching history. On the other sites they would feature attractive women as bait, but never reachable. On Zoosk I’ve contacted 6 women in 13 days. All returned interest and met 4 women. All real, accurate and ready with interest. I’ve met someone very special from this site and am stopping my subscription. I for one want to thank you. You did what you said you would do and provided more than adequate choices available.
Double Standard
by Firebrand2 on 2019/02/12 00:44
I’m sorry but I have to call this site out for something. I am a male user. The site (or one of its moderators) removed a photo of me with a firearm. I researched the policies to find out why. Turns out, Zoosk has a “no weapons” policy like so many other dating apps do. I’m like: “fine, you’re a private company and you can do what you want.” That was my thinking until... I see photos of female users with firearms. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say the rules aren’t being applied equally. Zoosk, you’re certainly not the only company to have this policy; but it really doesn’t make much sense. I don’t have access to your statistics, but I would bet that men spend more money on your site (or any dating site) than women do. If you’re not going to apply the rules even-handedly, could you at least — oh, I don’t know — throw a bone to the demographic that actually pays for your service?
SAVE YOUR MONEY AND YOUR DIGNITY
by Jratner214 on 2018/10/16 17:00
DO NOT JOIN ZOOSK!!! Once you’ve created a profile there’s NO WAY to permanently delete it. You can “pause” it. But you cannot DELETE it altogether. Really Zoosk?? Even archaic Facebook has a way to DELETE your account. Being on Zoosk was like hanging out at a sketchy bar. Some of the “matches” Zoosk suggested for me looked like men who are allergic to soap & water. AND Zoosk took it upon itself to send notifications to men that I wanted to meet them. The carousel idea?? LAUGHABLE. Clearly, it's for people who are just looking to hook up for a one nighter. Bc you have to make a split decision based on looks alone. This is a horrible site. Messaging: You can send a ❤️ or 🙂. Wow....Really? Why not just pass a note "Do you like me? Check yes or no." After two messaging conversations; 1) just whining about having to pay for the service 2) the other claiming to want “sincere conversation” but moved right into “send me a full body pic”. Both giving off a serious CREEP vibe. I knew this wasn’t the place for me (re-evaluating the friendship with the person who suggested it). Imagine my surprise when I discovered there’s NO WAY to permanently delete my information. Oh I was able to change some of it like my name to “NOPE” and remove my picture. I cannot say enough bad about this company. I will never be back & I will warn everyone away from Zoosk.
Ehhh.. make improvements
by SaytanBrown on 2018/06/08 15:33
First of all.. if you send someone a heart and or smile they should automatically get put on a list showing you sent them a heart or smile so you know and can find them easier.. Second.. you should be able to search members names or have a list of who you recently viewed not just a list of who viewed you.. It’s super inconvenient when you want to view that member again, but can’t unless they view you.. Third.. It’s hard to get matches.. so when you get a match (connection) you should be able to message them and only them (your connections) for free.. I get messages from my connections when they match or like me back and I can’t read them unless I subscribe.. or have a limit of messages you can send a person until you have to subscribe like 10 messages..
Billed me even though i Cancelled app 3 times!
by jessiemae89 on 2018/09/08 17:22
I finally decided to come on here and write a review. I had joined Zoosk at most, couple yrs ago. I didn’t truly “sign up” until maybe 6 mths later. Anyways it was fun for a bit just meeting new people. Then it just got weird and annoying with guys saying gross things which I understand Zoosk has ZERO control over. My point and frustration with Zoosk is that when I decided to just end my subscription, I noticed a couple or more mths later that I was still being charged! I sent Zoosk an email explaining what happened. NO REPLY! NO REFUND! So a couple more mths down the road what do I see? I am STILL BEING CHARGED!!! I finally was able to completely delete the app but am Very disappointed with this company! I am not poor but I am not rich and cannot just throw money out the window! So make sure you all DO NOT do this to someone else please. And yes, I never did get any bit of a refund. 👎👎😟

Worthless dating app
by Weather buggy....I mean buggy on 2019/01/23 22:49
Zero stars if I could. Don’t waste your time, money or effort on the Zoosk app. This is by far the most dysfunctional dating app that I’ve ever used. You can’t view a profile if someone wants to meet you. You simply have to choose yes or no based on their first photo (which may or may not be centered) and you don’t even get to see how far away they live. Useless. Things are only slightly better with Smartpick, you can barely see their pictures because they are now just part summary page and look more like a thumbnail (and of course you can’t zoom in.) What makes it completely useless is that support is pretty much nonexistent. After I asked my 2nd question, I felt like they either have software reading your questions and answering them or people who have only the slightest grasp of the English language. Either way, this app has proven to me that it is worthless.
Don’t work, please,app owners fix your product.
by exile 85 on 2017/10/24 22:05
Online dating works for some people not everybody, have used dozens of dating apps over the years in heaven frankly disappointed because all of them are pretty much the same BS. This dating app is no different. Set me up with matches that clearly don’t fit the profile I put. You think the owners of this app would actually take a look at people‘s profiles and actually set them up with people they are similar to. I have not gotten matches that was even close. Do yourselves a favor go out see people. These dating apps have a good concept but they have a lot of holes more than. Take this information as a grain of salt there are successes but they’re a lot more disappointments. The owners of this app if you really want to be successful please fix all these errors and problems with your search engine it’s really not that hard. Once you do that then we’ll talk.
Don’t Waste Your Time
by Blimbby on 2018/10/04 13:42
This app is a complete waste of time. I don’t want to make a story of details... but in short. You have to pay to do pretty much ANYTHING other than just swiping if you like the profile or not, oh yeah, and once you’ve swiped so many, it tells you you’ve done too much and won’t let you browse anymore! Pretty sure you have to pay to see just who likes you and if you do and you want to message them, YOU CAN’T! They make you pay to message people! Are you kidding me?! The worst part is if you try to put your contact info on your profile because no one can have a way to contact you, the site will recognize it and remove it immediately. Very disappointed. I hate this app. Waste of time and others. Don’t be fooled by them! They just want your money! Trust me, there’s more flaws. And so much for a short story... that’s what you get when you waste your time and energy I guess
Sexist Dating App
by Baltes778 on 2018/04/25 17:45
I’ve never written a review in the App Store before but due to my experience with Zoosk, I feel compelled to warn other women. I feel this company is very sexist in that they push much older men on younger women and there is no way to guard against it by setting controls. You can create a custom search for your age preference but the default is men 10+ years your age and only a couple years younger. The “carousel game” is the same and cannot be altered. I’m 45 years old and was regularly contacted by men in their mid 50s all the way to 70s! Shame on you Zoosk for not only encouraging outdated social norms but for not allowing women to set their own parameters. How about standard settings that balance age ranges for women, such as 5-10 years older AND younger! Women these days know what we want and what we don’t. I for one, don’t want men who could be my father contacting me all the time! Get with the times and be an advocate for women’s equality!
Not recommend
by Play gin on 2018/02/12 17:26
My 2 Star rating is adequate because Zoosk does not ask you what you are looking for in a partner. Plus the Zoosk Carousel constantly matches you with people that do not have written profiles or live much too far away and Zoosk says this person matches your profile. How can that be?? Another issue and bad structure of this site is... Browsing.. when browsing the actual profile appears and that person sees that you viewed them. Some think you are interested when you are not. There should just be a photo and if you are interested then you can click on the profile to view more. Also and very important... don’t even try to send an email to customer service. You will get an automated email saying they cannot answer all emails and you should check the FAQ’s.. a lot of help that is!!
App functions
by leslie23111 on 2018/04/12 05:01
I don’t understand the smart pick process at all. Honestly it seems like it is the closest me ever to me geographically, that my choice of religion or smoking preference or whatever is not taken into account at all. The carousel feature could use tweaking, like I am literally selecting yes or no on an imagine alone, I can at least look at the profiles on okcupid before saying yes or no. I have no idea where the person is located geographically, what their religion is, nothing. I also don’t understand why in the app I cannot remove people from connections once we establish there isn’t really a connection. I think the app could use some serious tweaking, but I think those on here are looking for something more than I fling and the conversations are overall better.
Don’t waste your time or money
by Sugarkat25 on 2018/05/09 10:22
Use the free apps like Bumble, Tinder or OKCupid. Zoosk is the biggest waste of money I have ever spent. You cannot easily change the distance of your matches , and you cannot control who matches with you, so you will get “A zoosk member messaged you!” And it’s a man who lives 500 miles away. What good is that doing me? Then you get these daily “smart pics’ where you are asked if you “like him”. You are only shown tiny thumbnail sized photos, and if you click yes, those “matches” don’t show up anywhere. He’s as good as lost forever. Zoosk offers premade questions so when someone does reach out they don’t even use original thought. I get a dozen smiley faces and 40 hearts a day, and 2-3 questions asking what’s the best quality about being a Leo, when I don’t even know the name of the man asking. Zoosk promotes no individuality and has no real matches - not in my area anyway. Go with bumble, men actually communicate there so long as you take the first step to reach out (Bumble’s rules, ladies first) Or weed through the creeps on Tinder. At least their are actual people on Tinder and it can cross reference with your social media. OkCupid was a great site for me back in NY. Not as many people use it on Florida but it’s free and way better than zoosk. Don’t waste your money on this crap.
Stay away for multiple reasons: privacy concerns
by Garnet2828! on 2019/01/21 19:38
I have attempted to give zoosk the benefit of the doubt based on the reviews however I can not advise more to stay away. First, customer support is brutal. I have been receiving numerous messages from men stating thank you for viewing them or contacting them in one way or another. I have not. I did not view these men, reach out, accidentally look at their profile etc. This occurred over and over. I sent an email to Zoosk with my concerns and spoke to Cesar without any regard. I was concerned in the function of this site and with my privacy as I never contacted or viewed these men. I was refused a refund both my Apple and Zoosk. The greater concern is that Zoosk had not care for how I was concerned about this functionality. I would never recommend this site and if you are concerned about your privacy in any way. Customer support is awful as well.
False advertising
by Cars on legs on 2018/03/10 13:34
When you look at who has “viewed” you, it sends the other person a notification that you viewed them! Even if you don’t click on their profile. So now when I get a notification that someone has viewed me, I’m afraid to look at it because even if I’m just scrolling through without clicking on anyone’s name, it will tell them that I’ve been looking at them when I haven’t. I emailed them about this problem and got a generic response telling me how to tell who’s viewed me. I emailed again and got the same response. So now I’ve got all of these guys thinking I’m checking them out when I’m not. When someone is interested in me, they show his picture without telling me where he is or letting me look at his profile. I have to answer yes no or maybe about being interested in order to see who he is. Nine out of 10 times he is over 100 miles away.
Not advised!
by Chertl on 2018/07/12 18:36
I found that this website does not actually match you with anybody. It was a nightmare of an experience. In addition, you cannot view someone’s profile when in carousel! I don’t want to answer whether or not I am interested until I can see what the person is like and where the heck they live! I am extremely disappointed that when you do cancel your account, your profile remains active for all of those to see! Talk about feeling vulnerable and violated! The best part... if you cannot get into a real computer to be able to access the desktop version, you CANNOT deactivate your account, you can only “pause” it for a set amount of time! That’s right people, your information remains with Zoosk and will AUTOMATICALLY reactivate after set amount of time! I feel that this is a try violation of my privacy! I would NEVER recommend this site to ANYBODY!
Fake profiles
by Meekone123 on 2018/03/24 19:11
There is no way in Creation, you have a girl / young lady / woman reach out to you, stating I would like to learn more, drop me a line. You sign up and all those ladies are then MIA, never responding even when you pay for the free replies upgrade. I was on for a month last year, never met anyone so I dropped it. Starting receiving multiple messages and after replying to over 20 of them not one word. Two weeks of signing up, after replying to some posts nothing. Now you may be thinking this dude must be ugly, gross, looser or something but I am not. Ladies want a funny guy, good personality, tall, w all their teeth, drama free, enjoy the outdoors, like to travel, some want you to have a car / home / financially stable (go figure right lol 🤣🤪) and I’m all that and then some. But really 2 weeks again and nothing? Even w free text replies just in case the ladies do not want to sign up yet. I am starting to notice, the posts w light green dots may be the fake profiles, there is no substance / descriptions and according to this site, 85% of the women are in the medical industry lol Nutshell, save your money and try another site. This site is poorly designed as well. And FYI, this may be only the 2nd time, in my life, I have rated a 1 star or less. I want you to save your money. Sincerely, Bo Krejci
Deceptive tactics and fake profiles
by IIH QMHP on 2019/01/15 00:37
1) Fake “you’ve been viewed” notifications. Have to sign up for paid subscription to see. When you look at your “viewed” tab, you’ll see that those profiles are not there. 2) Fake profiles to make you think there are potentials dates in your area to entice you to sign up for paid subscription. 3) As you “smile” or “heart” fake profile, the profile will send you a computer generated message and you will receive notification. To read the message you have to sign up for the paid subscription. 4) Fake messages. The messages all say: “Hi, if you want to chat with me send me a message.” “Hi, thanks for the greeting. What are you up to right now?” “Thanks for the greeting but I prefer messages.” And “If you location isn’t (it inserts your location) than I will not likely respond.” 5) If you ask for a refund, they will ignore your email.
Horrible site!
by Jsaxinnd on 2019/01/21 13:03
This is the second or even maybe the third time I have tried this site. I am really tired of the false viewing notifications it gives. I have had in one case one lady that lives locally and she seems to view my several times a day and yet never says boo to me in a message. I do not like the false profiles this site has. I feel this site does a whole lot to give someone false hopes. And their "security" screening is a joke. I have received SEVERAL "views" with pictures of women that say they are, for example, end of their late 50s or early 60s and there are pictures show a lady, or should I say a girl, there can't be any older than 30. And then on top of that the picture shows a telephone number and says text me at such and such a number. And I say something with a somewhat negative tone and they won't approve it. So don't waste your money here.
Nobody worth the most money!!!!
by zooskisscammingu on 2018/10/06 00:56
This site keeps all the women from your area on here to get you to spend your hard earned AMERICAN dollar!!! Guys don’t do it. Save your money and buy a Fifth of Crown Royal instead. The women want the exact same thing you do BUT won’t respond to any messages, oh wait they aren’t on line! Even their Chinese women that answer the phone can’t help!!!! She offered me $5.00 off my next subscription if I want stay, even though I had homosexuals posing as women when they have something for gay men!!! Stupid I ask the Chinese woman to give to me for free and she I can’t do and I said where do you get a 4.9 out 5 when your site is bogus!!!! And of course no answer!!! UNMM IT’S A SCAM GUYS!!! Don’t about the ladies how this site is for you girls.... but I read that the girls get a lot of pictures from trashy guys sending penis pictures....LOL ALL YOU DOUSHBAGS, that screw it up for the rest of us!!!!

How we met
by K8fishy on 2019/02/14 17:22
I met my husband on zoosk within 24hours of starting my membership. Yes there are a lot of creepers. But 2yrs of marriage and a beautiful baby girl are proof it works. ❤️

Hi, your site won’t let me deactivate my account after I deleted my subscription through iTunes. So I need you guys to fix that
NOT FREE!!!!!
by Pizza face guy on 2019/02/13 10:46
BEWARE!! Free to download app. NOT FREE TO USE!!!! They use your pictures to entice other users to pay for subscriptions. While doing the same to me. It’s a way of scamming you.
Do not waste your money
by EdyEmC on 2019/02/13 01:24
Don't waste your money on this app, this app should be removed from the app store. First of all, why would you keep charging a person that deleted the app? Isn't that stealing? It is sad that Apple allows companies like these to engaged in such activities. You are keeping my money, but I will sure leave you with a review you deserve. :) So I need to upload a picture in order to cancel my subscription? You instruct people to login on their mobile browser and look for a "Cancel My Subscription" option and the option is nowhere to be found? I need to download iTunes to be able to cancel my subscription? How is this even allowed? I have been a Software Developer for 5 years and to know that Software companies do this kind of things to its users is a shame.
What
by Kgerm07 on 2019/02/12 18:43
My account got blocked after using it and I didn’t even do anything...
Horrible
by Brtsmerka on 2019/02/12 05:04
The advertisement for the subscription is horrible. I was under the impression I was paying 12.50 a month. Charged me 74.99 up front for the 6 month subscription and you don’t offer a refund? That is horrible customer service I’m never using your app again. My account is deactivated and I will be calling customer service as soon as the open.
Double Standard
by Firebrand2 on 2019/02/12 00:44
I’m sorry but I have to call this site out for something. I am a male user. The site (or one of its moderators) removed a photo of me with a firearm. I researched the policies to find out why. Turns out, Zoosk has a “no weapons” policy like so many other dating apps do. I’m like: “fine, you’re a private company and you can do what you want.” That was my thinking until... I see photos of female users with firearms. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say the rules aren’t being applied equally. Zoosk, you’re certainly not the only company to have this policy; but it really doesn’t make much sense. I don’t have access to your statistics, but I would bet that men spend more money on your site (or any dating site) than women do. If you’re not going to apply the rules even-handedly, could you at least — oh, I don’t know — throw a bone to the demographic that actually pays for your service?
Horrible site - all about nickel and dime’ing u
by Inc lwyr on 2019/02/11 13:48
I have added my search criteria 100 times in this site since I’m seeking someone between 21 and 31 who is slim to athletic since I’m very active. Every single “match” is a older woman who places “curvy” as her body type which means she’s over 200lbs. Also I placed my search for a 10 mile radius around me yet it’s sending me folks over 300 miles away to my inbox constantly. When you do finally connect with someone they all seem to want to chat online for weeks before talking on the phone. I cancelled my membership
Decent, but ok
by luvsoccr on 2019/02/11 05:33
Just like any other site out there, doesn’t really having a matching algorithm or anything. Like an upgraded tinder, almost. It’s frustrating though because response times can take awhile, as well as receiving messages. Need to do better with notifications because they are only received intermittently. Not really the best app I’ve ever been on.
Stop refreshing and give more distance options
by cboxgo69 on 2019/02/11 04:40
I hate how this app refreshes and shows “recommended” instead of the saved search I was looking at. Also, zoosk doesn’t give you the ability to select distance to a specific mile value... you get options like 5, 20, 50... I can’t see people within 25 miles without selected people 50 miles away. Every other dating app allows selection on a scrolling range... these two annoyances are making me reconsider paying for the service any longer.
If I could give no stars I would!
by peachykpk on 2019/02/10 14:09
I have used Match and Bumble as dating venues, Zoosk is by far the worse. They are all a lot of work but Zoosk has the lowest quality men. I received a lot of messages but the people that did meet what I was looking for always lived at the least 150 miles away and for me it is not ideal to date someone that far away. There are many men that have not verified their photos - to me this means they are not real and raises the question did Zoosk create profiles just to add to their pool of people. This site is not worth the time and money! Spare yourself!
The worst dating app ever
by BbBen on 2019/02/10 12:48
1. No filter whatsoever, you gotta clean up a lot of garbage messages that are not even messages before you get to someone somewhat potential 2. By simply viewing a search page, it marks about every displayed profile as viewed, providing a perception to other profile holders and making them think you’re interested. Which then creates more need to clean up unwanted calls for attention 3. No privacy-as soon as you log in, everyone and their mother is messaging you, match or no match... annoying. Makes you close the app within seconds 4. When someone emails you the display of their picture is so small yet before you can respond the app wants you to decide if you like them, how could one tell based on a smiley face sticker and 1/4”sq sticker? 5. Smart pick section too, super small print and very little pictures to see, and you should decide if you’d like to match up... can go on... just not worth $35/month For that money the site should be better organized with algorithmic filters that would get you closer to what you’re looking for. IMO Whoever is running this site is a fief.
The app is not good
by iosonomestesso on 2019/02/10 09:13
While I like zoosk the app is not as good as the website. It doesn’t accept my user and password so I can’t use it and I have to use the website version, very bad

First time writing an app review because how bad this app is.
by sbowuognavyao on 2019/02/09 23:24
Poor quality of men here. Set my search requirement. But shows me same guys that that not fit my requirement ( education. Distance, height) seems like there’s overwhelming a amount uneducated men here. And a lot of construction workers. Wonder why ?
Don’t start a relationship with this app....,
by Misgrace96 on 2019/02/09 03:42
It will take an act of Congress to deactivate your account. And you will have to have access to an actual desktop computer to do it. It will not allow you to deactivate your account from the app.
You have to pay for everything
by !$Jon$! on 2019/02/09 02:39
Want to talk to people? Gotta Pay Accidentally swiped left on someone you thought was a match? Gotta Pay Ads LOTS of ads Surprised deleting my account didn’t cost me money. Don’t even deserve that one star to be honest
I found the one
by ~jassi~ on 2019/02/09 00:55
Before I tried Zoosk, I had tried everything else and wasn’t having much success. I finally tried zoosk and will admit I had the most success here. I finally met the woman of my dreams and we have been dating for almost 7 months now. The app was easy to use and customer service was great when needed. I have recommended zoosk to a lot of my friends as well and will continue to do so. Thanks zoosk for helping me meet the love of my life.
Zoosk gets 2 thumbs up
by jLondon7 on 2019/02/08 12:27
I have to totally disagree with Zoosk on the take. You can view all messages and profiles with your paid subscription whichever you choose. I wanted to test the waters so I opted for one month. I believe the extra charge for everyone to see you and message you. Is more for the ppl who have not paid and they can’t see or message everyone. So that will allow the non subscribers to reach you. It’s a lot of good men with great work history and excellent retirement plans. Aka good jobs.... 😁 80 percent caucasians. 20 percent African Americans and one % Asians. A lot of construction workers on this site. It’s true a lot of people don’t take the time to pick a good name and fully commit to writing a story. That means they’re not looking for quality just quantity. So you just pass on certain profiles. I really enjoyed the site. I met a few special men on Zoosk. So I give it a thumbs up
Horrible app concept
by Watching nothing. on 2019/02/07 00:31
In the carousel you have to say yes or no based off of one picture and the age. No distance or ability to look at a profile before saying yes or no. Matches will end up being 200+ miles away in different states. But you cannot go back to the other “yes votes” and send them a message just 1 out of 100 they match you with. This is a horrible app and setup.
Subscribing
by Mr Bitz on 2019/02/06 21:31
You literally have to subscribe for everything. I’m sorry, but I’m just not paying for a service like this. Seeing who liked you, sending messages, receiving messages, etc. all require a subscription. Seriously? You can’t even read or send messages for free? Zoosk needs to catch up to ever other dating app out there that only charges for boosts and things of that nature.
Fake accounts
by Hman00061 on 2019/02/06 21:13
Simply a terrible experience and waste of money. Had several people “like, wink or show interest” but after I reply they simply disappeared. Had several people say they want to meet me - but there no way to contact them. What’s the point of someone saying they want to meet but you can’t contact them?? I’ve been using apps like this and they are all a waste of money and time. Very few real accounts. Not sure if Zoosk knows and it’s a scam to get money or they are an unaware? Either way I’m canceling my membership and I’ve learned my lesson!
It does not allow you to sign up
by Hshdkc on 2019/02/06 19:38
I downloaded the app and have been trying to set it up. It asks for my zip code or city. I enter it and it tells me it can’t be found. There is no way to go back or move forward. I have tried every major city. I have tried closing and re-opening the app. If this company doesn’t have the ability to match me to a major city or zip code, I have zero confidence in it being able to match me to a person.
Not free

by Ilyvanillysilly on 2019/02/05 05:07
This app was a waste of my time downloading its trash. How come after u match with someone you have to pay to send them a message ? What’s the point of the app then? Don’t waste your time everything is an annoying up charge.
Sneaky prices
by fall19 on 2019/02/05 02:26
I have personally tried other dating apps and this is one I would never pay for. I’ve had it for two days and did not intend to make a purchase, more so when I wasn’t even sure it would be one that I personally would like. Anyway accidentally made my purchase for 6 months, and now I can’t seem to get a refund. They really do get you with these prices. Also the app seems to keep matching me with others out of state or over 1000 miles away. It is also not matching me with my age group preference. I don’t like this app, nor do I recommend it, be careful when viewing their subscriptions.
Money scam try something else
by realnews7777 on 2019/02/04 09:24
So i was roped into a membership also. Money,Money,Money. I’ve used pof in past with fantastic results compared to this. Averaging about 1 date a week. With zoosk not 1 date in three months. Then right after my membership expires (next day) magically all these beautiful women are interested in my profile which is hilarious because There’s no pictures on it anymore and hasn’t been for the last 30 days. You guys are dirty,dirty,dirty. Karma will catch up eventually while you are swimming in all that money and I pray I see you exposed on the news someday.
Absolutely worthless
by tactics2337 on 2019/02/04 07:05
I’m a good looking, fit, guy with a six figure income. I paid for the premium membership and sent out probably 100 messages and didn’t get a single response. I’m convinced that most of the profiles are either fake, or have long since been abandoned. Scam.
Terrible in every way
by BIGBOSSCLANTON on 2019/02/04 05:39
Account was hacked and they took my money and referred me to some legal email. They are all about money, have terrible customer service, and I highly recommend you do not waste your money on this app.
This app is so frustrating
by deeboo1980 on 2019/02/03 02:49
I have tried a bunch of different apps and this is by far the most confusing and annoying one for me. First off I am getting guys older than what my requirement is and the distance is far off too. I paid for an app that I most likely won’t find a connection because I’m hardly getting anyone in my requirements. Second it seems like the same people are constantly viewing my profile. I am not sure if that’s just a glitch or if the same people keep checking it. I can’t remove them if I don’t want to see them anymore. I am not sure what I am paying for...
Age
by Doctordirk on 2019/02/01 07:56

Zoosk
by Bobbie_McGee on 2019/01/30 13:02
Terrible app. Definitely don’t pay cause $150 later I still can’t get messages from people and they want me to pay more?? I emailed them to get money back and no response. Just know if you sign up for any plan they’ll charge you unless you go into apps and shut off payment. Worst idea ever to pay any amount of money for this.
Seriously?
by TheAzzurri on 2019/01/29 18:59
Worst format and function for a dating app/site I’ve ever seen.

Won't let you unsubscribe from the site, won't let you from I tubes either. Cannot change auto renew from the app. DO NOT GET IT!!! They refuse to refund either and it's impossible to contact any one. Bunch of thieves.
Fake views and probably fake members
by Cookng with Apps on 2019/01/28 02:13
Discovered this when deleting the long list of men I was not interested in. As soon as I deleted a few more supposedly popped up that viewed liked me or sent me a message. No way they many came up in a ten minute time frame. And in Spite of preferences set was constantly getting likes or messages from supposed members outside my search criteria. Waste of time. Had two guys worth meeting a couple of catfish. If you try the free version constant junk pops up in the screen ads and games.

Obstacles to Overcome on Zoosk
by JamesClown on 2019/01/25 07:06
1. Dead or still up but inactive profiles- no blue dot. 2. Massive amount of fake profiles. 3. Person you’re messaging may not be reading them, especially women because they’re using app for free. 3a. Every profile is “_____ is ready to chat” but Zoosk deceives and does not put a red light in place of green light for free users indicating other user cannot reply to your messages. Zoosk, clean up your app Verdict: Guys it’s not worth the money. Too much work to find real, active profiles. Zoosk needs to make it easier for paying customers to find chat ready users on it’s app. Free version is worthless, so pass on Zoosk.
Rip of

Big time rip off,
Worst ever
by whyksvsbnrj bzvn on 2019/01/25 00:02
This is the worst dating app! Do not pay for it.
A lot of Scam
by Reflex117 on 2019/01/24 23:44
I have been on zoosk for 2 weeks and have gotten at least 2-3 fake accounts with people out of the country or some offering to get off the site and email instead so they can offer stuff Most accounts of users that are not even on zoosk ever. You send likes and messages into abyss, what good is a website with a TON of none active users. Bravo....
Don’t waste your time
by yo baby's dady on 2019/01/24 12:07
This app is the biggest rip off I have seen on the app store to date. It’s a dating app that will at the very MOST let you like people and see that someone liked you.... unless you pay a monthly fee. You can not so much as send a message to someone without paying a fee. Do not waste your time with this.

Okay
Garbage dating app
by flyfisher3031 on 2019/01/24 03:14
Wish I could give this review no stars, first of all after you pay for a membership you have to pay for every other feature which are the only ways you seem to get any matches. Second there are hardly any profiles near Washington or at least any that are actually active and not bots... do not waste your time with this app it’s absolute garbage and the staff brush aside complaints like it’s no big deal, they’re just after the money so don’t waste your money like I did.
Worthless dating app
by Weather buggy....I mean buggy on 2019/01/23 22:49
Zero stars if I could. Don’t waste your time, money or effort on the Zoosk app. This is by far the most dysfunctional dating app that I’ve ever used. You can’t view a profile if someone wants to meet you. You simply have to choose yes or no based on their first photo (which may or may not be centered) and you don’t even get to see how far away they live. Useless. Things are only slightly better with Smartpick, you can barely see their pictures because they are now just part summary page and look more like a thumbnail (and of course you can’t zoom in.) What makes it completely useless is that support is pretty much nonexistent. After I asked my 2nd question, I felt like they either have software reading your questions and answering them or people who have only the slightest grasp of the English language. Either way, this app has proven to me that it is worthless.
Disappointed.
by ntonio86 on 2019/01/23 13:14
It’s a waste of time and money. They advertise that you can do this and that. While trying to chat with people you can’t because most of the people there don’t have an account. You have to pay in order to chat with people. Then when you pay for. Package of 6 months they end up charging you another 6 months after your 6 months are done even though you only paid for 6 months.
Stay away for multiple reasons: privacy concerns
by Garnet2828! on 2019/01/21 19:38
I have attempted to give zoosk the benefit of the doubt based on the reviews however I can not advise more to stay away. First, customer support is brutal. I have been receiving numerous messages from men stating thank you for viewing them or contacting them in one way or another. I have not. I did not view these men, reach out, accidentally look at their profile etc. This occurred over and over. I sent an email to Zoosk with my concerns and spoke to Cesar without any regard. I was concerned in the function of this site and with my privacy as I never contacted or viewed these men. I was refused a refund both my Apple and Zoosk. The greater concern is that Zoosk had not care for how I was concerned about this functionality. I would never recommend this site and if you are concerned about your privacy in any way. Customer support is awful as well.
Better than other apps, barely
by TCA151 on 2019/01/21 18:04
First dating app I’ve tried that actually had very few fake profiles, scammers & prostitutes. Be aware that developers review ALL profile stories and any edits you make - they will make changes if they don’t like what you write (removing not just profanity & any sexual comments, but also anything that remotely criticizes Zoosk or online dating in general. Don’t dare say that online dating is hard or frustrating). For a guy, the biggest problem is women who do not respond to messages. This app lets you see when anyone views you - even when they keep coming back to see you over and over. But, the lack of engagement from the women is much worse than many other apps. It’s like a lame middle school dance with everyone staring at each other from across the gym! The ladies’ stories all say that they are seeking a guy, but that’s hard to do if you don’t have the guts to exchange a few text messages in the app. I lasted about a month & finally gave up. Hope you have better luck!
Terrible
by travirca on 2019/01/21 15:56
If you don’t pay you don’t get to match, I just got a match from someone 2 miles away, very pretty and I can’t respond unless I pay, this app is really trash
Pay to message
by Krisssaay!! on 2019/01/21 14:34
Yep, just to say hi. That’s dumb. I’d rather have ads.
Horrible site!
by Jsaxinnd on 2019/01/21 13:03
This is the second or even maybe the third time I have tried this site. I am really tired of the false viewing notifications it gives. I have had in one case one lady that lives locally and she seems to view my several times a day and yet never says boo to me in a message. I do not like the false profiles this site has. I feel this site does a whole lot to give someone false hopes. And their "security" screening is a joke. I have received SEVERAL "views" with pictures of women that say they are, for example, end of their late 50s or early 60s and there are pictures show a lady, or should I say a girl, there can't be any older than 30. And then on top of that the picture shows a telephone number and says text me at such and such a number. And I say something with a somewhat negative tone and they won't approve it. So don't waste your money here.
Joke lying zoosk
by 5088323552 on 2019/01/21 03:02
My job makes to where I don’t get too meet women. So I decided too try this app. This site on its own starts showing women are viewing your profile. Ok well if you can get these women too answer they ALL said they never seen your profile. This happens multiple times every day. So zoosk pimps out women’s profile saying they viewed you and they NEVER KNEW YOU HAD A PROFILE.
Save your time... and more importantly, your money
by cueball83081 on 2019/01/21 00:00
I fell victim to this “pay to play” trap. They even show off fake profiles to hook you in and as soon as you get your membership, all the shiny trinkets are long gone. Really sad that so many people, myself included, have been taken advantage of and helped this company become filthy rich.
Don’t even bother
by Grotto agin on 2019/01/20 22:00
After 2 months on this site I received only one message, honestly it wasn’t even worth responding to likes are never responded to and not worth the $$$ they try and ROB YOU of and that’s putting it nice I rarely see a decent profile that makes me interested in even sending messages and the matches they gave me were horrendous. Do your self a favor don’t bother.
Bad feeling.
by James and my butler Austin on 2019/01/20 12:10
I was not on this app more then 5 mins and I was getting a bad vibe from it and after seeing some of the other reviewers I would not go to this app but that is just my honest opinion.
Your company deserves no ratings but is zero get me off this site I’ve been trying for eight months
by judy headrick on 2019/01/18 21:05
I have replied several times to be off of this site I unsubscribed almost 8 months ago and I’m starting to get text from people on Zoosk and now today I got a text from someone that said I would not believe what you’ve done to my pictures if I have to get an attorney I will I want myself off of your site !!!!
Dollars and Cents is the apps MO
by Firstbiteoftheapple on 2019/01/18 17:27
This app is less interested in you meeting people to date and MORE interested in luring you into purchasing a membership (that many complain is difficult to cancel or stop the automatic subscription) then charging you to message anyone you might want to get to know! I did read warnings and reviews on the internet prior to using the app. I really thought about how the app developers make money and hoped others experiences wouldn’t be my experience. I was mistaken. I’m convinced that meeting people the old fashioned way is far cheaper and less frustrating. The app is not “user friendly.” You can message people after paying for message package and the app doesn’t allow you to see the messages of all members whether they have a paid membership or are on a free trial. The app uses internal data to prevent you from making contact with an intended. They dangle a carrot in front of you then they want you to pay for tokens, message packages and Zoosk emojis to “try” to get in touch with someone’s profile. I’ll allow my current membership to expire and my message package and will not be using this app again. Thanks to all the other people who wrote a review and expressed their disdain for the app. Beware of using this Zoosk app is all I can say. Anything that sounds too good to be true is in this case!!!
If you don’t pay you just give all your info and time for nothing
by Chad1231234574 on 2019/01/18 01:00
You can’t do anything until you give them money. Misleading by saying in app purchases. Should say you can use it unless you pay. They just farm info I think
Horrible App
by Her55r on 2019/01/17 06:12
Doesn’t work well. They love to take your money and then ask you to pay for more things to be able to talk with people. Waste of time and money.
The worst of the worst
by hereiznoy on 2019/01/17 00:04
This is probably the worst dating app I’ve used. They send a ton of emails. “So and so” is interested. Click the link. *Maybe* be linked to the stupid carousel and see a single pic of the interested party. Spend 15 minutes of your precious time swiping left/right/ middle through a HUNDRED profiles. Or maybe... you get linked to the carousel starting with a completely random person and think to self, how did I screw up clicking a link? See a profile you like? Good luck figuring out to actually “like” it. Oops! I just sent a message with a stupid heart emoji. Or if you’re lucky...a stupid smiley emoji. But then you get a reply! And you craft a super witty bit of repartee. Whoops! Turns out it was an auto reply. Look, if you held a Nerf to my head I could come up with some redeeming qualities of this here app. But there are much, much better options that are worth your time. These guys took $30 of my hard earned dollars. Don’t let them do the same to you.
System issues and more subscription choices.
by Hong Kong glitch on 2019/01/17 00:04
Recently my session expired but I just got a message from one person but now I can’t reply. I’m not sure if I want to pay again fir the time being as my luck has been good, but I don’t want to leave that person hanging without explanation as to why I’m not interested. Wish you’d have maybe just a week or two week test trial to choose from. So I could st]et some things in order before I take .a break
This app is trash
by Sabrina26317 on 2019/01/16 22:44
This dating app is trash not only do you have to pay a membership fee but when you are gifted items you can’t do anything with them you can’t take them off redeem them NOTHING so when people PAY ACTUAL MONEY FOR THESE GIFTS THEY SHOULD GET THEM not the other people gift items pay money for these gifts and nothing happens you can’t redeem the items or nothing so don’t go wasting your money on the gifting system because ITS POINTLESS!!!! AND A WASTE OF MONEY!!!!!😡🚮if you want a good quality dating app save your money and go to a different site!!!!
Lol

Garbage,going back to tinder
A lot of fake/filler profiles! Nickel & dimes you!
by Dust T on 2019/01/16 18:02
There is a lot of fake profiles and scammer type profiles as well! If their photos are unverified it’s a fake profile 100% of the time. They need to make a search filter for verified photos only. This app squeezes every dime they can from you. I paid 30 dollars for 1 month so I could write people messages turns out only paid members can reply. They charge you and extra 10 dollar for people to be able to reply. There’s also a whole bunch of other micro transactions. Stick to tender, bumble, okcupid & POF.
This site probably

by ohheykate on 2019/01/15 04:41
I think it absolutely ridiculous the prices of the subscriptions. Why so expensive? Honestly, I would never pay that much money to meet someone online. “Zoosk” should really think about at least letting you message people. I think it’s a scam and they are just trying to take your money.
Deceptive tactics and fake profiles
by IIH QMHP on 2019/01/15 00:37
1) Fake “you’ve been viewed” notifications. Have to sign up for paid subscription to see. When you look at your “viewed” tab, you’ll see that those profiles are not there. 2) Fake profiles to make you think there are potentials dates in your area to entice you to sign up for paid subscription. 3) As you “smile” or “heart” fake profile, the profile will send you a computer generated message and you will receive notification. To read the message you have to sign up for the paid subscription. 4) Fake messages. The messages all say: “Hi, if you want to chat with me send me a message.” “Hi, thanks for the greeting. What are you up to right now?” “Thanks for the greeting but I prefer messages.” And “If you location isn’t (it inserts your location) than I will not likely respond.” 5) If you ask for a refund, they will ignore your email.
Waste of money
by eh517 on 2019/01/14 10:19
There are plenty of free apps that you can use that are 100% better than this one. For one, you can send as many messages as you want but don’t hold your breath that anyone will respond Bc you have to pay $30 to read you messages for a month! For all you know you are being rejected for the simple fact the people you are messaging aren’t being read. For second unless you live in a very large city your options of matched are slim to none. You can select filters so you only see what you are looking for but if you restrict your distance less than 100 miles good luck finding anyone decent. This app is a joke!
Awful
by very disapointed10 on 2019/01/14 02:11
Terrible dating service, the men on the site look and look but won’t talk to you or even respond .... what a waste of time and money 😡😡😡
Racket!
by BigPHX on 2019/01/13 19:56
Good features but it’s a racket! You pay $30 a month for what? Unlimited swipes but no one can message for free. So even though you signed up and can send messages they can’t message you back unless they have subscribed. But wait there’s more, if you pay $10 more, anyone can message you back! Oh and if you want the other features you can pay $8-10 more for each feature... come on now. Better off using Some other app with flat subscription coast for all features. Update! You don’t get unlimited swipes! WTH did I just pay $30 for?! Nothing, I got absolutely nothing for $30.00. Trust me I. This one save your money and go to another app like Tinder were you get actual features when you sign up. This is garbage! Update: They edit your profile. If they don’t like what’s in your profile, regardless if it’s not vulgar or offensive, they will edit it out. Who the hell are these people? Literally the worst dating app on the market. Save your money. I cancels after 3 days.
Another “pay to read this message” app that claims it’s free
by Kuroneko123 on 2019/01/13 16:52
One of the worst dating apps I’ve seen since using them. People can message you and you can respond but in order to reply you need to “upgrade” for a ridiculous fee. More dating apps should allow messaging and actual dating instead of deterring actual people in need of love.
One sided.
by LilAznMnkee on 2019/01/13 15:56
Totally one sided. You can like whoever you want, but in the end, you get nothing. :(
A trial is needed
by The killer011 on 2019/01/13 08:36
I only used it for 5 minutes and I felt scammed. Other than liking or loving a profile nothing else is free. I wasn’t even allowed to read a message. You should give your “new members” a chance to experience the app for at the very least 3 days or it shouldn’t be free to download the app. I mean; what’s the point of downloading the app for free if you can’t even experience a single conversation? I once used the POF app. There were so many members who will create an account just so they invite to join their private website. Give us the chance to like that way after 3 days the only we can stay in touch with other members or make more connections will be through premium membership
Frustrating
by Orio1041 on 2019/01/13 03:12
Having to pay to chat puts this dating app far behind the rest
Wow, good way to take your money lol!
by MrtookYoGurl on 2019/01/13 02:35
App is a complete waste of time, & will take your hard earned money. Crazy the App Store would even let them keep this app up, nobody ever replies, you pay 30$ for subscription well, pay 10$ more to guarantee girls will reply to you, what’s next? 12.99 guarantee girl will wake up next to you guaranteed. Haha
Money Trap
by Jesse657hays? on 2019/01/12 23:02
This app is just preying on desperate people. You can’t even message without paying. If you just want to try for one month it’s 30 dollars. It’s a complete rip off. Use bumble, tinder, or hinge if you want something reasonable. I would rate it zero stars if I was allowed.
Ads
by autumn devine on 2019/01/12 15:01

Zoosk App

Don’t get this one.
by The Monday Man on 2019/01/12 00:52
It’s all about them getting every dollar out of you. After you get the your basic $. Plan Then there will be numerous other fees! They jump in and ask if you want to give them flowers which cost more money Once you get you to the page to buy something -/it’s really hard to find the exit button? Then try to get your money back I got out in 24 hours and they say you, you’ll get you money back with 3 days. I’m still waiting to see. Mike Beche. 818 6249086 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
Zoosk-On the Take
by Octoset on 2018/08/11 17:52
You’ve heard about or even experienced yourself those kind of relationships that one side just takes while the other side gives. That’s how I would describe using the Zoosk app. It’s total relationship goal is to squeeze every dime from your pocket while it gives ABSOLUTELY NOTHING in return. Once they scam you out of a membership( that you willingly do) they proceed with a menu of other additional things they will allow you know- for an additional cost of course like ALLOW your messages to be read by anyone you send them to. WHAT?! So only certain people that you message can read what you sent unless I pay an additional fee ? Oh, and if you want to know if someone even read your message then, you guessed it, pay up for that too. Maybe it’s just me, but that’s not the way to invest into a better relationship. I will have to say that I did like the way they encouraged people to authenticate themselves with their photos, other social pages, their phone number and even military history. I’m glad they didn’t make you pay for that ( and I did use). Lastly, many of the males didn’t even bother putting any effort into their profiles. Their pics were unclear, didn’t bother to introduce themselves or even pick a more original user name than “Zoosk User”. I realize that isn’t Zoosk’s responsibility but, I did factor that in when deciding to remain , which I didn’t even before my paid membership was expired.
Zoosk is legit !
by Intellipod on 2019/01/06 20:10
First of all, I’d like to state right-off I have not had one date yet through Zoosk. Why may you say am I giving them 5 stars, and calling them legit? Well, it’s because I have been going through these dating apps and services for over twenty plus years. I know what a ripoff is. This site has given me more return views/smiles in one week then some of the other “big” guys gave me in upwards of a decade. No kidding!!!! Also, I uploaded a picture (which some might consider) questionable. Zoosk would not verify it! I thought to myself, ok, this is BS there was no reason to not verify that picture because it is 100% clean. I gave it some Aurora treatment, initially, so I thought ok I’ll send up the original pic, and if that doesn’t work then I’ll upload another...and another until my membership expires and cancel my membership. Well, I uploaded the original pic—NO EFFECTS, and they approved it!! That was a surprise to say the least. Don’t know if my bad luck dating will ever change...not likely, but because Zoosk is obviously run by human beings I might just stay with them for awhile. BTW: I’m not...repeat NOT looking for any favors...doubt they would come my way anyway.
Complete rip.
by Erdill355 on 2018/07/02 22:09
I normally don't write reviews but I really haven't had much luck on this site. I have had more responses from dating sites like POF. I have a match membership as well. Getting back to zoosk. When I first signed up in 2013, you could browse and at least view members. Hey you even got to write a message. But come on man, paying to message? Let's be real here. St lest with a POF membership you know that you message was either read or deleted. Come on man, having to pay additional money to see if your message was read or not? Come one man, let's be real. If you don't get a reply, then either your message wasn't read or it got the ultimate delete. But how are you supposed to know if you don't pay? And not to mention that zoosk is one of the top money making dating sites? I would say so with all the additional crap that they sell. Buy coins, blah. Buy boost, blah. Buy hide, blah. And hardly anyone messages back on this site. So why bother spending your hard earned money here? Go to a strip bar at least there you'll get a nice rise out of something and not butthurt like this site. I really do like the layout, but previous versions were much nicer. End review. Oh and not to mention that I think either google or zoosk themselves created another account for me using my gmail. I only have one account using an aol email. I have never, ever wanted to create 2 zoosk profiles. I can only manage one account.
Dating app equivalent of a floating fly in your latte
by Nunyainct on 2018/08/11 12:35
This app is the internet equivalent of finding a floating fly in your latte. The carousel feature just sends you pictures where you have to make a split decision of yes no or maybe based on someone’s looks. You get a whopping zip as to interests or intellectual acumen. And, you cannot ignore the person and move onto the next. There is no way to search for someone based on their zoosk name. Equally awful is the encouragement of sending a heart or smile emoji. How on earth is that a message? Are we 12 years old? I’ve met a few people on the site who told me they figured out emojis or a short message were not sent by them but receive other people. The only good thing I can say about the app is that if you’re busy, it’s at least sticking your toe in the water to start going out on a few dates. And that being said, you need to meet the person right away the longer the texts drag out, the less likely you are to meet or the less likely the burger at the window looks anything like the burger on the display poster. Because of the awful carousel, inability to search people by name, I’d rate this app with zero stars if I could. I almost forgot the absurd coin options to hide your profile, see if a message was read and send a gift... zoosk should be renamed the internet dating site for socially awkward people who never matured past 12 years old....

Never again
by Nick2theNameNaysay on 2018/03/08 01:46
So, after using an app like this for the first time here’s what I’ve learned. It’s all an illusion and scam to make money. Some of these people are paid to message you and some of them apparently are automated messages. If they’re not being paid then hats off. Immediately after I deleted the account, I get a an email talking about someone that wants to have a good time. Nothing is to the point. Also, I don’t understand how the people who pay for these services and are popular don’t feel like garbage humans. You’re asked to like 40 different people who may or may not have anything in common with your or each other. In the real world, opposites attract and there could be one thing they have in common which sets things off. The beauty about a real world situation is that you figure that out on your own, rather than knowing it first hand. It then becomes a game for you to get in someone’s pants and possibly ruin their life. Honestly, I think these apps should be illegal. I don’t care what good could or did come from these apps. That doesn’t mean they can do as they please charging a person just to talk with someone which you could do for free with other apps or by simply having their number. Anyway that’s my review and opinion about this and similar apps. You do you.
It’s an app and nothing is guaranteed in real life...
by samantha112369 on 2018/03/20 01:24
I read review where someone was complaining so much about what was wrong with this app. Everything you have to take with a grain of salt. There are millions of people who want to meet someone and there is a probability that you will meet someone that is close to what you’re looking for. With that said you may have to kiss a few frogs before you find your close to being a prince, no one is perfect. Being selective and being open are two things that go hand-in-hand when getting on any dating site they’re all an algorithm. And if you understand that then you know what you’re getting yourself into. I have had no issues I have met some wonderful people... have any of them then my match no and I’m OK with that it’s giving me an opportunity to find out what I can and cannot live with at this point my life. At the same time I have met some very nice people. I have no horror stories for anyone because nothing is guaranteed in life. I wish everyone well and don’t take this seriously until you meet someone you want to be serious with and remember it takes two people to commit.
Not Impressed
by Sunshine State 2018 on 2018/07/12 13:32
I have found if u like trying to make contact with people 900 miles away for a relationship... This site maybe exactly what u r looking for. Even when it states photos r verified, I have found this not to true. A lot of fake profiles too. I noticed more of the "attractive" people were either never married or widowers or had "just recently" relocated to the area. Kinda strange... The other review about this site constantly trying to upcharge u for different things that should be a given (knowing if someone has read ur message to them) is ridiculous! Plus when u try to filter the site to now it down to more of what u r looking for, the filter constantly changes back to no filter. The carousel search is another big waste of time with the site deciding who is ur best match without taking anything into consideration. BIG waste of money and time. I would recommend Match (one of my friends had great success with that site), or even Ourtime. Definitely not this site, unless u just need ur ego pumped up with fake pics, profiles, and responses. FaceTime or video chat with ur contact to find out if they r real. That is exactly how I learned this site is only about 35% real!
Worst dating site yet!!

I thought I’d take a chance and see how this site was like. I don’t like it at all. First of all, I think it’s deceiving because it’ll send you a notification that “someone” sent you a message. So, when you go to the site, you see that maybe it was just someone who viewed you...no message. The reason they probably viewed is because this site has a way of getting you to view people and then notifying them that “you” viewed them...which prompts them to go see who viewed them...which prompts another message to you that someone messaged you. Like a domino effect. Like someone else said, the carousel part of this site is just plain dumb. It asks you to either say Yes, No, or Maybe. The yes and maybe answer will definitely match you up with them. Now mind you, you don’t even have a clue as to where they live so they could be 100...or 1000 miles away!!! Plus, they could be midgets or gigantic! I think that part of this is so wrong. After all, a face is just a face! Before I say I like someone or not...I need to see or know a little more about them. So, that is very misleading to me. Hope they change some things or else, bad publicity will cause them to lose or not make any money.
Carousel BS
by Saychef on 2018/06/26 17:46
This Ap is set up more like a board game than a site offering information about possible matches. Why can’t you just show names/photos/ interests to all those who fit your age, location and brief description? I lost $7k to another site to an internet love scammer. Don’t think you could be fooled by these folks? These people are pros and know every angle to charm you into their trap. Make sure you can talk and see the person. Don’t fall for the “ due to high security crap” and as soon as the request for money comes up- RUN. Watch for grammatical errors as well. Another red flag there. UN ambassadors and chaplains have more important things to do then fly to Gahna and Nigeria. Western union and some Walmart’s won’t even deliver there. Don’t wind up like I did- a very gullable, foolish and now $5K debt. My family will not even speak to me. PS- military folk ready to retire have there accounts”sealed” so they can not access money until return to Us. True or not, I heard that deal twice. Second time I bowed out right before the $1K request came through. There were gold rewards for bravery and good deeds involved in both. Sad but there are many out there. They play you like a fiddle. Report to FBI but don’t count on anything!
Like a V-8 running on 4 cylinders
by Rancho Cowboy on 2018/05/09 21:47
I like many things about Zoosk. It’s one of the best dating sites. However, there are no line item questions about the miles I’m willing to travel nor the height of the female I seek, hence 80% of the choices I am sent are are a two hour drive or taller than I am comfortable with. I mentioned these preferences in my “story” but your staff does not have the time to read these many “stories” and adjust parameters accordingly. So obviously these variables need to be added to your line item questions. Next I am frustrated by your Smart Pick option. After being sent the results of my Smart Pick, I press the photo to find out the important information about my Pick, the picture disappears and a message pops up saying “no Smart Picks at this time, we will alert you when you have new Smart Picks”. I am sure I’m not the only person to be frustrated by this, and I would appreciate having the option to select information and potentially contact my new Smart Pick. Sincerely, Rancho Cowboy
Don’t bother! Skip this site!
by Alyssa-H93 on 2018/10/30 03:22
I honestly wish I could give zero stars because of how awful this site is. I initially didn’t pay for anything and wanted to see how it worked. Didn’t like how I couldn’t do much. So I paid for one month. Still hate it. I can do a little more but not much. Don’t get me started on the quality of picks. I get nothing but creepy men that are well in their 40’s and some in their 50’s asking to be my sugar daddy. I’ve had a few keep messaging me to give them a chance. So I had no other choice but to block them. If it’s not the age then they all live over 1,000 miles away! Not exaggerating! I have searched up and down to try and set a range like all other sites let you, and nothing. Can’t find where to do that. I’ve talked to a couple people on there but they can’t hold a conversation. I get views from profiles where I have to ask for a picture...pass! I can’t even view the profile pictures of the Smart Picks. It’s a tiny little box and I can’t see much. I would never recommend this site for anyone that wants to try online dating! I had better luck on Hinge and Bumble! Don’t waste your time and money!!😡🤬
Better than other apps, barely
by TCA151 on 2019/01/21 18:04
First dating app I’ve tried that actually had very few fake profiles, scammers & prostitutes. Be aware that developers review ALL profile stories and any edits you make - they will make changes if they don’t like what you write (removing not just profanity & any sexual comments, but also anything that remotely criticizes Zoosk or online dating in general. Don’t dare say that online dating is hard or frustrating). For a guy, the biggest problem is women who do not respond to messages. This app lets you see when anyone views you - even when they keep coming back to see you over and over. But, the lack of engagement from the women is much worse than many other apps. It’s like a lame middle school dance with everyone staring at each other from across the gym! The ladies’ stories all say that they are seeking a guy, but that’s hard to do if you don’t have the guts to exchange a few text messages in the app. I lasted about a month & finally gave up. Hope you have better luck!
Just give the people what they want!
by Disgusted with this baloney! on 2018/06/30 00:26
Don’t like the “game” playing of the carousel- how do I know if I like someone when I can’t refer to their profile? Then if you like various people and put yes/maybe - zoosk chooses the final one and you either accept or reject...then have to start all over again!!! Really don’t have time for these games... very busy and just want it to be clear cut, give me people ONLY within the radius I ask for, and if I delete them I don’t want them to surface again!! It’s the same people over and over...whoever thought of this tortuous system? Time waster! People want to meet real qualified matches. If they are on there to play games and waste time for fun, they need to be weeded out somehow. I pay for my subscription but can’t tell if someone else just popped on for the night and is going to scam me or waste time. It has happened over and over. I don’t like being scammed right before a subscription renewal either!!! Seems suspect to me...just sayin’!! I hope you get it straightened out - there’s got to be a technology that can figure this out! Disgusted!
Zoosk gets 2 thumbs up
by jLondon7 on 2019/02/08 12:27
I have to totally disagree with Zoosk on the take. You can view all messages and profiles with your paid subscription whichever you choose. I wanted to test the waters so I opted for one month. I believe the extra charge for everyone to see you and message you. Is more for the ppl who have not paid and they can’t see or message everyone. So that will allow the non subscribers to reach you. It’s a lot of good men with great work history and excellent retirement plans. Aka good jobs.... 😁 80 percent caucasians. 20 percent African Americans and one % Asians. A lot of construction workers on this site. It’s true a lot of people don’t take the time to pick a good name and fully commit to writing a story. That means they’re not looking for quality just quantity. So you just pass on certain profiles. I really enjoyed the site. I met a few special men on Zoosk. So I give it a thumbs up
Stalkerish App
by JMS06010 on 2018/07/04 17:55
The developers need to fix the “viewed me” component of this app! It portrays individuals to be what one would define as a stalker the amount of times the app identifies how many times a day someone views you! It has happened to myself and others have reported the same issue! Men or women then believe you are interested and have messaged me to the point I have to block them! It is completely inaccurate and only makes any individual using the app look bad! You are supposed to be helping people find compatible matches not scaring them away! Finally, the app uses an algorithm based on individuals you state you are interested in?! I even have stated in my settings the age range (36-46) I am looking for! With that being said MOST of the matches the app sends me are of men 50 plus who live 100 miles away! These are not men who have viewed me or messaged me, these are men this app has specifically matched me with. How about you use the algorithm the way it is intended to be used for not only age but by distance! Is 100 miles away really realistic for the average person looking to date? I think not!
Unhappy customer
by Scrap grandma on 2018/10/01 19:54
This is The second time I’ve used this app and I am still very disappointed in what is on this website. A lot of these men are looking for a fantasy woman! Not the real deal.. Rather looking for love or a relationship we all have responsibilities that won’t go away because of a new relationship.. drama? No “Reality”!! The man on here don’t seem to care at all about the truthfulness of their appearance and age they need to have Up dated pictures and be honest with what or whom they are looking for. Went on a date with a man that took pot every morning a date with a man still pining for his deceased wife an alcoholic and one that wanted a mother. I feel this website is a joke not one person I have talk to or went to coffee or dinner with were caring for anything more than themselves! Or they just wanted someone to talk to/sex. On my profile it said within 60 miles and men only !!! nearly every one of the men were hundreds of miles away and numerous pictures of women!! Seriously Zoosk - you need to really work on your app 😡😡😡very very disappointed . Will NOT recommend or renew😡
Such a scam
by Letmesubmitadamnreview on 2017/12/16 14:05
I was just going to uninstall and forget this app, but then I got charged for something I did not agree to. With every subscription based service, no mater what it is, I always instantly cancel, Zoosk was no exception. The reason I don’t do this is so I can see how a service is before I agree to pay for more than an initial period. Obviously, I was less than impressed with Zoosk. Being disappointed, I deleted the app and tried to forget it. I, however was not able to do that. Instead, Zoosk charged me for a second period that should not have even been possible. When I contacted customer support, I got someone who told me that it’s my fault they charged me a second time, but at least I can use the service for the remainder of the month. Oh, I can also resubscribe at any time! I had contacted them not even a day after my nonexistent renewal date, obviously I would have gotten zero usage out of it by the time it had happened. I discourage using this service very highly. They don’t like to take no for an answer when canceling their service.
Awful experience
by Jives123 on 2017/10/19 01:47
I’ve tried my fair share of apps, and this one has really stood out as awful. For one, you literally can’t even get a sense for the other people on the app without purchasing a ridiculously expensive subscription ($30 for one month... or you could commit to 6 months for a lower per month price). You can make a profile and log on and see profiles, but you can’t receive or send messages as a part of the trial at all. As mentioned by others, the app matches you with people that specifically don’t meet criteria you’ve pre-selected, it doesn’t allow you to arrange your photos in any way, it doesn’t allow you to expand these tiny thumbnails of photos in the profiles of others in the match list they give you, and if you do the random profile thing, it literally shows you one picture and asks you whether you like the person. I’m sorry, is this tinder??? The interface is annoying and the app in general does not seem to be concerned with user experience whatsoever. I am incredibly disappointed in this app.
Worse online dating site/ STAY WAY!!
by Ziggy puppy on 2018/04/04 03:56
I would never recommend Zoosk to anyone. Please stay away from this site. This is by far the worst online dating site. I want to say that about 90% of the men are disgusting. You start talking with them and within days they want to have sex. Seriously? Then you try canceling the subscription from your phone and the actual website, mind you, you have to cancel twice. I didn’t care that I lost money. I just wanted to put this behind me. Then a month goes by and you get charged for the month. I reached out to a customer service rep and they make you feel like you’re an idiot and don’t know how to cancel. Really? Come on. Fine, so after days of going back and forth, Zoosk said they will only reimburse me half of my money and they cancelled me out. Ok, I thought this nightmare was over but no, I received an email this morning that my account was unpaused. I reached out to customer service and haven’t heard back or received my half refund. This site is a joke. Please stay away from it. Do not get caught up in their web.
Zoosk is fun!
by mbbarch on 2018/05/08 02:37
I don’t take to heart the previous reviews because this app is far superior to others where profiles are continuously hacked and truly fake messages are created. I have found Zoosk members to be courteous and thoughtful in their posts. It’s true that every app throws out lots of options for you, but it is when you Search with your own criteria that you have the most success. I think Carousel is loads of fun, it’s a light hearted way to be exposed to lots of nice people you might not have come across. And I have never had a false profile message sent to me! Other sites seem to have far less members so I will keep getting sent anyone around my age from my town, but that doesn’t happen to me on Zoosk. They have sent me men who are less educated than I like, but I have never been sent a woman, or men with characteristics I reject. And I have met some wonderful men!
Can’t search by member name.
by Steve clock fan on 2018/03/17 12:45
Zoosk frustrates me in that if you see someone you want to contact, and unless you send a message immediately to establish contact, there is no way to find their profile later using their Zoosk name. Even tech support says they have no way of locating a member’s profile using their Zoosk alias! Using Zoosk is somewhat like being in a hurricane with profiles flying by. Grab any that interest you right then because you can’t go back. Their “Search” button does not allow you to search for someone you saw. It just puts you back in their hurricane of profiles. Another issue is that some of their search modes ignore my preference settings. I specified a maximum distance of 20 miles, and most of their “matches” are hundreds of miles away, 1,500, 1,700 miles, etc. Zoosk, both of these issues can be solved with software updates. Are you listening to your customers?
Carousel tells you nothing
by wondering to continue on 2018/05/08 06:53
I agree with the previous subscriber that carousel does not take into affect any thing other than looks. That feature live strictly on narcissistic tendencies and some people are very narcissistic and somewhat dangerous . Am I responding and saying yes to somebody 2000 miles away? Do I know their age? You don’t know anything about them so why waste your time swiping quote yes quote on dozens of people and they’re not even in your area geographically. Sure you might hit a homerun with the long-distance thing but really you don’t want to get involved somebody outside of your driving requirements why even play Carousel? Granted I have but it’s not very productive or realistic in most cases. On those grounds alone I can anyone leaving the site. Secondly if you know a subscriber by screen name you can’t find them unless they’re in your account section that you’ve messaged them before. There’s no way to look somebody up that you might’ve seen before but did not message. There is no real depth to this site but it is simple.
ABSOLUTE WORST PAID APP
by Ericpoo on 2018/03/16 04:47
This is the worst thing that I’ve seen. Would if I could give zero stars. Their customer service completely missed the point when contacted, indicating that it was an issue with my “computer” and not their program. I paid for a subscription, but can only view profiles of other paid subscribers, meaning, if someone “likes” me and they’re not a paid subscriber, all I have to go on is one photo with absolutely no information but their age - no location, nothing about them whatsoever. Also, they decide what age range to send you - they “allow” you 6 “saved searches” but it will default to whatever age they decide you should be dating, and how far away they should live - in my case it happened to be 10 years older than me and apparently over 100 miles was appropriate and that just DOES NOT WORK FOR ME. Do not waste your money on this app. The free version of Plenty of Fish is SO MUCH BETTER. Or, if your just looking for a casual hookup Clover is great. Let me reiterate DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON ZOOSK.
Fake algorithm ? Bad system for matches, carousel is the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen.??
by Fyouripoffpieceofshitapp on 2018/06/30 18:47
I as well got scammed into this app acouple times. The first time was because once the free ran out, Zoosk tricked me into staying by notifying me that I had messages. B.S., they were hearts and smiles... which mean nothing to anyone apparently ? The second was because Zoosk falsely says that someone is viewing you over and over again..( they are most Likely Not.. and if you try to Delete someone that is annoying or whatever, it notifies them that you viewed them and makes it worse when they think you’re interested, when you’re Not.. the App is Set up Very Poorly, it has not been amended at all. Zoosk has changed my profile statement, taking things out, adding from previous versions, outright changing it around so that I sound like some thing I am Not, it has happened numerous times until I threatened them with legal action... I simply want to me a nice woman that I’m attracted to is all. This app is a borderline scam !!
Satisfied
by Fantasylover on 2017/12/13 20:17
This site may not be perfect but it excels at the one key attribute. There are LOTS and LOTS of PAYING members. This means there are more quality ladies to connect with and VOLUME is where success lies, not fancy algorithms or filters. It shuffles the deck over and over so you don’t miss out on a hidden opportunity. Yes. You have to hand-filter out girls that are too old, too young, smoke, are unattractive in some way. Also, girls show up as have viewed your profile even when they’ve only thumbed past it. Still, it’s VOLUME you want. Just block the ones you’re tired of seeing and keep your eyes on the prize. For the uninitiated, note that the site DOES bait you before you pay with hotties that are either non-existent, non-paying, or real, and filters out the physically undesirables and Stepford wives. Happy hunting.
2 Stars is a gift
by d-scusted on 2018/11/02 00:34
Why can’t you have a trial period even if it’s 2 weeks so people don’t get sucked in to having to buy a subscription to view one message worthy of viewing? I thought Zoosk would be different but it’s the same BS. It’s not hard to find quality people as it is. And what is up with the ridiculous carousel and the site in general. Make your site inviting and give a little if you expect people to buy from you which is giving back and DON’T advertise a free site when it’s not free if the only way you can communicate with someone is to buy a subscription. I personally don’t like to invest in something I don’t get a return on. Give a little, get a lot. Be the BETTER site and erase your competition. I’ll sign back up when I can view and communicate for free without having to enter my credit card info for 14 days! And, you’ll get a much better review.
The worst of the worst
by hereiznoy on 2019/01/17 00:04
This is probably the worst dating app I’ve used. They send a ton of emails. “So and so” is interested. Click the link. *Maybe* be linked to the stupid carousel and see a single pic of the interested party. Spend 15 minutes of your precious time swiping left/right/ middle through a HUNDRED profiles. Or maybe... you get linked to the carousel starting with a completely random person and think to self, how did I screw up clicking a link? See a profile you like? Good luck figuring out to actually “like” it. Oops! I just sent a message with a stupid heart emoji. Or if you’re lucky...a stupid smiley emoji. But then you get a reply! And you craft a super witty bit of repartee. Whoops! Turns out it was an auto reply. Look, if you held a Nerf to my head I could come up with some redeeming qualities of this here app. But there are much, much better options that are worth your time. These guys took $30 of my hard earned dollars. Don’t let them do the same to you.
Not what it Says
by EmmatheGeek on 2018/06/21 19:36
So this app says it’s the number 1 dating site and I find that incredibly hard to believe. First of all, I answered their questionnaire and am being routinely matched with people outside of not only my chosen preferences but with people I’ve never even seen before. I’ll receive a notification very rarely for this app though my notifications settings says I should be getting them. This app also allows people to continue sending you messages even after you have chosen the option to remove their chat permission. I also don’t like the fact that the carousel option gives you a picture a picture and an age and then you are supposed to say Yes, No, or Maybe. These matches are routinely outside of my set search parameters. I’m completely disappointed in this app and will probably be deleting it as soon as my set subscription runs out.
Nurse
by cedeness on 2017/10/22 11:44
Over 7 years I have tried virtually every online dating service with marginal success. Suffice to say no lasting relationships as a factor of the amount of fees paid. I’ve been on this site for 2 weeks. I have seen some of the most attractive women that I have seen in my entire searching history. On the other sites they would feature attractive women as bait, but never reachable. On Zoosk I’ve contacted 6 women in 13 days. All returned interest and met 4 women. All real, accurate and ready with interest. I’ve met someone very special from this site and am stopping my subscription. I for one want to thank you. You did what you said you would do and provided more than adequate choices available.
Double Standard
by Firebrand2 on 2019/02/12 00:44
I’m sorry but I have to call this site out for something. I am a male user. The site (or one of its moderators) removed a photo of me with a firearm. I researched the policies to find out why. Turns out, Zoosk has a “no weapons” policy like so many other dating apps do. I’m like: “fine, you’re a private company and you can do what you want.” That was my thinking until... I see photos of female users with firearms. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say the rules aren’t being applied equally. Zoosk, you’re certainly not the only company to have this policy; but it really doesn’t make much sense. I don’t have access to your statistics, but I would bet that men spend more money on your site (or any dating site) than women do. If you’re not going to apply the rules even-handedly, could you at least — oh, I don’t know — throw a bone to the demographic that actually pays for your service?
SAVE YOUR MONEY AND YOUR DIGNITY
by Jratner214 on 2018/10/16 17:00
DO NOT JOIN ZOOSK!!! Once you’ve created a profile there’s NO WAY to permanently delete it. You can “pause” it. But you cannot DELETE it altogether. Really Zoosk?? Even archaic Facebook has a way to DELETE your account. Being on Zoosk was like hanging out at a sketchy bar. Some of the “matches” Zoosk suggested for me looked like men who are allergic to soap & water. AND Zoosk took it upon itself to send notifications to men that I wanted to meet them. The carousel idea?? LAUGHABLE. Clearly, it's for people who are just looking to hook up for a one nighter. Bc you have to make a split decision based on looks alone. This is a horrible site. Messaging: You can send a ❤️ or 🙂. Wow....Really? Why not just pass a note "Do you like me? Check yes or no." After two messaging conversations; 1) just whining about having to pay for the service 2) the other claiming to want “sincere conversation” but moved right into “send me a full body pic”. Both giving off a serious CREEP vibe. I knew this wasn’t the place for me (re-evaluating the friendship with the person who suggested it). Imagine my surprise when I discovered there’s NO WAY to permanently delete my information. Oh I was able to change some of it like my name to “NOPE” and remove my picture. I cannot say enough bad about this company. I will never be back & I will warn everyone away from Zoosk.
Ehhh.. make improvements
by SaytanBrown on 2018/06/08 15:33
First of all.. if you send someone a heart and or smile they should automatically get put on a list showing you sent them a heart or smile so you know and can find them easier.. Second.. you should be able to search members names or have a list of who you recently viewed not just a list of who viewed you.. It’s super inconvenient when you want to view that member again, but can’t unless they view you.. Third.. It’s hard to get matches.. so when you get a match (connection) you should be able to message them and only them (your connections) for free.. I get messages from my connections when they match or like me back and I can’t read them unless I subscribe.. or have a limit of messages you can send a person until you have to subscribe like 10 messages..
Billed me even though i Cancelled app 3 times!
by jessiemae89 on 2018/09/08 17:22
I finally decided to come on here and write a review. I had joined Zoosk at most, couple yrs ago. I didn’t truly “sign up” until maybe 6 mths later. Anyways it was fun for a bit just meeting new people. Then it just got weird and annoying with guys saying gross things which I understand Zoosk has ZERO control over. My point and frustration with Zoosk is that when I decided to just end my subscription, I noticed a couple or more mths later that I was still being charged! I sent Zoosk an email explaining what happened. NO REPLY! NO REFUND! So a couple more mths down the road what do I see? I am STILL BEING CHARGED!!! I finally was able to completely delete the app but am Very disappointed with this company! I am not poor but I am not rich and cannot just throw money out the window! So make sure you all DO NOT do this to someone else please. And yes, I never did get any bit of a refund. 👎👎😟

Worthless dating app
by Weather buggy....I mean buggy on 2019/01/23 22:49
Zero stars if I could. Don’t waste your time, money or effort on the Zoosk app. This is by far the most dysfunctional dating app that I’ve ever used. You can’t view a profile if someone wants to meet you. You simply have to choose yes or no based on their first photo (which may or may not be centered) and you don’t even get to see how far away they live. Useless. Things are only slightly better with Smartpick, you can barely see their pictures because they are now just part summary page and look more like a thumbnail (and of course you can’t zoom in.) What makes it completely useless is that support is pretty much nonexistent. After I asked my 2nd question, I felt like they either have software reading your questions and answering them or people who have only the slightest grasp of the English language. Either way, this app has proven to me that it is worthless.
Don’t work, please,app owners fix your product.
by exile 85 on 2017/10/24 22:05
Online dating works for some people not everybody, have used dozens of dating apps over the years in heaven frankly disappointed because all of them are pretty much the same BS. This dating app is no different. Set me up with matches that clearly don’t fit the profile I put. You think the owners of this app would actually take a look at people‘s profiles and actually set them up with people they are similar to. I have not gotten matches that was even close. Do yourselves a favor go out see people. These dating apps have a good concept but they have a lot of holes more than. Take this information as a grain of salt there are successes but they’re a lot more disappointments. The owners of this app if you really want to be successful please fix all these errors and problems with your search engine it’s really not that hard. Once you do that then we’ll talk.
Don’t Waste Your Time
by Blimbby on 2018/10/04 13:42
This app is a complete waste of time. I don’t want to make a story of details... but in short. You have to pay to do pretty much ANYTHING other than just swiping if you like the profile or not, oh yeah, and once you’ve swiped so many, it tells you you’ve done too much and won’t let you browse anymore! Pretty sure you have to pay to see just who likes you and if you do and you want to message them, YOU CAN’T! They make you pay to message people! Are you kidding me?! The worst part is if you try to put your contact info on your profile because no one can have a way to contact you, the site will recognize it and remove it immediately. Very disappointed. I hate this app. Waste of time and others. Don’t be fooled by them! They just want your money! Trust me, there’s more flaws. And so much for a short story... that’s what you get when you waste your time and energy I guess
Sexist Dating App
by Baltes778 on 2018/04/25 17:45
I’ve never written a review in the App Store before but due to my experience with Zoosk, I feel compelled to warn other women. I feel this company is very sexist in that they push much older men on younger women and there is no way to guard against it by setting controls. You can create a custom search for your age preference but the default is men 10+ years your age and only a couple years younger. The “carousel game” is the same and cannot be altered. I’m 45 years old and was regularly contacted by men in their mid 50s all the way to 70s! Shame on you Zoosk for not only encouraging outdated social norms but for not allowing women to set their own parameters. How about standard settings that balance age ranges for women, such as 5-10 years older AND younger! Women these days know what we want and what we don’t. I for one, don’t want men who could be my father contacting me all the time! Get with the times and be an advocate for women’s equality!

My 2 Star rating is adequate because Zoosk does not ask you what you are looking for in a partner. Plus the Zoosk Carousel constantly matches you with people that do not have written profiles or live much too far away and Zoosk says this person matches your profile. How can that be?? Another issue and bad structure of this site is... Browsing.. when browsing the actual profile appears and that person sees that you viewed them. Some think you are interested when you are not. There should just be a photo and if you are interested then you can click on the profile to view more. Also and very important... don’t even try to send an email to customer service. You will get an automated email saying they cannot answer all emails and you should check the FAQ’s.. a lot of help that is!!
App functions

I don’t understand the smart pick process at all. Honestly it seems like it is the closest me ever to me geographically, that my choice of religion or smoking preference or whatever is not taken into account at all. The carousel feature could use tweaking, like I am literally selecting yes or no on an imagine alone, I can at least look at the profiles on okcupid before saying yes or no. I have no idea where the person is located geographically, what their religion is, nothing. I also don’t understand why in the app I cannot remove people from connections once we establish there isn’t really a connection. I think the app could use some serious tweaking, but I think those on here are looking for something more than I fling and the conversations are overall better.
Don’t waste your time or money

Use the free apps like Bumble, Tinder or OKCupid. Zoosk is the biggest waste of money I have ever spent. You cannot easily change the distance of your matches , and you cannot control who matches with you, so you will get “A zoosk member messaged you!” And it’s a man who lives 500 miles away. What good is that doing me? Then you get these daily “smart pics’ where you are asked if you “like him”. You are only shown tiny thumbnail sized photos, and if you click yes, those “matches” don’t show up anywhere. He’s as good as lost forever. Zoosk offers premade questions so when someone does reach out they don’t even use original thought. I get a dozen smiley faces and 40 hearts a day, and 2-3 questions asking what’s the best quality about being a Leo, when I don’t even know the name of the man asking. Zoosk promotes no individuality and has no real matches - not in my area anyway. Go with bumble, men actually communicate there so long as you take the first step to reach out (Bumble’s rules, ladies first) Or weed through the creeps on Tinder. At least their are actual people on Tinder and it can cross reference with your social media. OkCupid was a great site for me back in NY. Not as many people use it on Florida but it’s free and way better than zoosk. Don’t waste your money on this crap.
Stay away for multiple reasons: privacy concerns
by Garnet2828! on 2019/01/21 19:38
I have attempted to give zoosk the benefit of the doubt based on the reviews however I can not advise more to stay away. First, customer support is brutal. I have been receiving numerous messages from men stating thank you for viewing them or contacting them in one way or another. I have not. I did not view these men, reach out, accidentally look at their profile etc. This occurred over and over. I sent an email to Zoosk with my concerns and spoke to Cesar without any regard. I was concerned in the function of this site and with my privacy as I never contacted or viewed these men. I was refused a refund both my Apple and Zoosk. The greater concern is that Zoosk had not care for how I was concerned about this functionality. I would never recommend this site and if you are concerned about your privacy in any way. Customer support is awful as well.
False advertising
by Cars on legs on 2018/03/10 13:34
When you look at who has “viewed” you, it sends the other person a notification that you viewed them! Even if you don’t click on their profile. So now when I get a notification that someone has viewed me, I’m afraid to look at it because even if I’m just scrolling through without clicking on anyone’s name, it will tell them that I’ve been looking at them when I haven’t. I emailed them about this problem and got a generic response telling me how to tell who’s viewed me. I emailed again and got the same response. So now I’ve got all of these guys thinking I’m checking them out when I’m not. When someone is interested in me, they show his picture without telling me where he is or letting me look at his profile. I have to answer yes no or maybe about being interested in order to see who he is. Nine out of 10 times he is over 100 miles away.
Not advised!
by Chertl on 2018/07/12 18:36
I found that this website does not actually match you with anybody. It was a nightmare of an experience. In addition, you cannot view someone’s profile when in carousel! I don’t want to answer whether or not I am interested until I can see what the person is like and where the heck they live! I am extremely disappointed that when you do cancel your account, your profile remains active for all of those to see! Talk about feeling vulnerable and violated! The best part... if you cannot get into a real computer to be able to access the desktop version, you CANNOT deactivate your account, you can only “pause” it for a set amount of time! That’s right people, your information remains with Zoosk and will AUTOMATICALLY reactivate after set amount of time! I feel that this is a try violation of my privacy! I would NEVER recommend this site to ANYBODY!
Fake profiles
by Meekone123 on 2018/03/24 19:11
There is no way in Creation, you have a girl / young lady / woman reach out to you, stating I would like to learn more, drop me a line. You sign up and all those ladies are then MIA, never responding even when you pay for the free replies upgrade. I was on for a month last year, never met anyone so I dropped it. Starting receiving multiple messages and after replying to over 20 of them not one word. Two weeks of signing up, after replying to some posts nothing. Now you may be thinking this dude must be ugly, gross, looser or something but I am not. Ladies want a funny guy, good personality, tall, w all their teeth, drama free, enjoy the outdoors, like to travel, some want you to have a car / home / financially stable (go figure right lol 🤣🤪) and I’m all that and then some. But really 2 weeks again and nothing? Even w free text replies just in case the ladies do not want to sign up yet. I am starting to notice, the posts w light green dots may be the fake profiles, there is no substance / descriptions and according to this site, 85% of the women are in the medical industry lol Nutshell, save your money and try another site. This site is poorly designed as well. And FYI, this may be only the 2nd time, in my life, I have rated a 1 star or less. I want you to save your money. Sincerely, Bo Krejci
Deceptive tactics and fake profiles
by IIH QMHP on 2019/01/15 00:37
1) Fake “you’ve been viewed” notifications. Have to sign up for paid subscription to see. When you look at your “viewed” tab, you’ll see that those profiles are not there. 2) Fake profiles to make you think there are potentials dates in your area to entice you to sign up for paid subscription. 3) As you “smile” or “heart” fake profile, the profile will send you a computer generated message and you will receive notification. To read the message you have to sign up for the paid subscription. 4) Fake messages. The messages all say: “Hi, if you want to chat with me send me a message.” “Hi, thanks for the greeting. What are you up to right now?” “Thanks for the greeting but I prefer messages.” And “If you location isn’t (it inserts your location) than I will not likely respond.” 5) If you ask for a refund, they will ignore your email.
Horrible site!
by Jsaxinnd on 2019/01/21 13:03
This is the second or even maybe the third time I have tried this site. I am really tired of the false viewing notifications it gives. I have had in one case one lady that lives locally and she seems to view my several times a day and yet never says boo to me in a message. I do not like the false profiles this site has. I feel this site does a whole lot to give someone false hopes. And their "security" screening is a joke. I have received SEVERAL "views" with pictures of women that say they are, for example, end of their late 50s or early 60s and there are pictures show a lady, or should I say a girl, there can't be any older than 30. And then on top of that the picture shows a telephone number and says text me at such and such a number. And I say something with a somewhat negative tone and they won't approve it. So don't waste your money here.
Nobody worth the most money!!!!

This site keeps all the women from your area on here to get you to spend your hard earned AMERICAN dollar!!! Guys don’t do it. Save your money and buy a Fifth of Crown Royal instead. The women want the exact same thing you do BUT won’t respond to any messages, oh wait they aren’t on line! Even their Chinese women that answer the phone can’t help!!!! She offered me $5.00 off my next subscription if I want stay, even though I had homosexuals posing as women when they have something for gay men!!! Stupid I ask the Chinese woman to give to me for free and she I can’t do and I said where do you get a 4.9 out 5 when your site is bogus!!!! And of course no answer!!! UNMM IT’S A SCAM GUYS!!! Don’t about the ladies how this site is for you girls.... but I read that the girls get a lot of pictures from trashy guys sending penis pictures....LOL ALL YOU DOUSHBAGS, that screw it up for the rest of us!!!!
