Zoosk.com Senior Review

By Top10BestDatingSites Staff

Zoosk.com is a unique dating website that combines the ease of social networking with the thrill of romantic matchmaking. Its trademark feature is the Behavioral Matchmaking™ software, which learns your preferences over time and alerts you to possible matches based on the profiles you've clicked, the people you've contacted, and other patterns in your behavior.

Features

If this sounds complicated enough as it is, you could look no further and be almost guaranteed of finding someone who takes your interest. If you’re a bit more tech savvy, and want to get more from your subscription, try some of Zoosk’s extra features to make the most out of the website. These include Mobile compatibility with the Zoosk mobile or messenger apps for added accessibility on the go as well as a unique Zoosk currency.

Zoosk messenger is also available for desktop use, letting you chat with whoever is online, and even use video functionality to see if you really hit it off.

Zoosk allows you to buy or earn coins by completing tasks, such as ‘liking’ the website on Facebook. These coins can be used to access additional features like extra matches or read receipts on messages you send, and add a whimsical and fun element to the search process. One great new plus to Zoosk in comparison to other dating websites is their innovative photo verification system. Up until now, you could verify your identity using the phone or social media. Now, any user can simply use the mobile app to upload a seven second ‘selfie video’. Once verified by a member of staff, their profile will be marked as photo verified, giving you the confidence to browse and chat securely.

Sign-Up

Becoming a Zoosker is quick and easy. It's free to create a profile and you can fill in as much or as little information as you'd like. You can log in with Facebook to find existing friends or use your email address to find friends on Zoosk. You can choose whether or not to complete the Zoosk compatibility test, which is designed to refine your matchmaking results even further.

Prices

The initial sign-up is free, and you can send one free message per recipient. To access the entire set of features, however, you will need to upgrade to a paid subscription. Zoosk also has its own virtual currency that can be purchased and redeemed for other perks.

Safety

Online dating comes with its own set of precautions to take, and whether you are a seasoned dater or you’re entering the world of dating again after a long break, it is well worth acquainting yourself with Zoosk’s excellent and informative guidelines on protecting yourself. If you are worried about a member being who they say they are, check for the ‘verfied’ sign on their profile. With four ways to verify their identity, including the new photo verification, there’s no reason for them to skip this important step! With a dedicated section on their website for safety, Zoosk take their members protection extremely seriously. Read and learn about spotting scammers online, protecting your personal data, and keeping safe when you make an initial meeting with a new match, and remember to always report it straight away if you suspect anything suspicious or illegal.

What We love

Zoosk's Behavioral Matchmaking™ technology is a breakthrough in online dating. Along with the compatibility test, it does an excellent job at learning what its members actually want in a relationship. As the many successful Zoosker couples can confirm, the method really works.

Room for Improvement

Zoosk puts a new social spin on online dating that some less technologically advanced people may not be ready for. Although the Facebook integration and email search are completely optional features, there are people who strongly prefer to keep social networking and online dating far apart. For those people who still want to take part in Zoosk’s award-winning matchmaking services, there is an option to sign up via email and avoiding syncing the dating site with social networking accounts.

Bottom Line

We were impressed by Zoosk's many features and refreshed by the site's up-to-date, stress-free approach to online dating. Zoosk provides a unique and fun experience for people eager to try a new kind of social dating and it is backed by proven results.
