Analysed for you:

More singles who are more your style


Pros and Cons:

  • One of the largest social dating portals with 30 million users worldwide.
  • Lots of fun features to play around with (such as the Zoosk Flirt Carousel, etc.).
  • New behaviour-based matching (see below).
  • The interface is easy to use but a bit tasteless.
  • Young audience of up to 55 years.
  • Some fake profiles and trolls.
  • Free until you make contact. Rates are, however, affordable.

("More singles who are more your style"):
"One of the good things about Zoosk is its useful and easy integration with social networks such as Facebook, MySpace, Bebo and Hi5."

Test summary:

Login to Zoosk – How it works

Formerly a Facebook application, Zoosk is now a successful online chat and flirt site with 1,000,000 UK members who login daily. Creating and setting up a profile isn’t difficult and can take only a matter of minutes. There is also a simple search function allowing you to narrow down your search to the kind of partner you’d prefer. Once logged in and having given all your basic information, you’ll see pictures of suitable candidates. See one you like and then simply click on it to view their profile.

So who uses

Basically, is one of those online dating sites that tends to attract a much younger crowd. Most of the singles here tend to go all the way up to late thirties, and possibly early forties. On average, the age for women tends to be 25 years and for men 27. As you can see, there are many exciting young members.

Use of Zoosk is only partially free – you can set up a profile and have a look around at the other profiles. Using the flirt carousel is also possible, as well as searching for other members. However, in order to initiate contact you need to pay. For users, there is a list of different payment types.
