The Zoosk community is significantly younger compared to other dating sites. With around 490,000 members from Australia, the majority of users are significantly under 50.

Zoosk is for flirting and thus attracts the interest of the masses. You can simply browse through the thousands of profiles with photos and write to other singles if you like them. Or you are written to. 

The costs are in the favourable price segment.

The giant from Silicon Valley is considered the smartest dating site. Over 40 million active users worldwide can hardly be mistaken, can they?

Zoosk.com in Practice

Your Zoosk profile could look like this:

inside Zoosk.com reviewZoosk.com

Your Zoosk profile

It has to be said quite clearly: At Zoosk, the focus of the profiles is clearly on the profile photos.

In addition, singles interested in you can see the following data in your profile: 

  • General information about yourself (name or pseudonym, age, location, gender, interested in women/men, looking for friendship, dating...)
  • Preview of further photos
  • Personal details: Marital status, children, origin, education, religion, smoking, physique, height, star sign, education, origin, children, etc.
  • Icebreaker: e.g. description of the "perfect date" 
  • Interests: 10 interests can be selected from a variety of options.

How to get in touch

In the search function you will find partner suggestions. The SmartDate function ensures that the suggestions get better and better the longer and more often you are active on Zoosk. The system learns from you. 

In the Zoosk "Now Online" feature, you can like other members' pictures or send them a "hello". 

The Zoosk creators provide their members with even more creative ways to contact other members:

  • Attract attention with a wink 
  • Send a gift: a small picture with a certain value expresses how great you think another member is
  • Send a personal message
  • We have found out that the wink function does not go down very well with the recipient. It is better to send a personal message. Your counterpart will appreciate that.

    Zoosk only allows you to view one profile at a time. This tempts users to take a closer look at each profile. The likelihood that someone will get lost in the crowd is somewhat lower this way.

    You can only write messages once you have taken out a premium subscription. Furthermore, you have to pay coins to send gifts with Zoosk.

    The Zoosk app for mobile flirting on the go

    We could see that the Zoosk app has received consistently good ratings in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. This means that the makers have struck a chord with their customers.

    You can conveniently download the app, so you are independent and don't miss any activity on your dating profile even when you are on the go. 

    You can also use all the important Zoosk functions on your smartphone:

  • Send messages
  • Matching in the flirt carousel (like pictures or not)
  • Send a wink 
  • Advanced search
  • Our practical tip:
    You can upload a short selfie video to verify the authenticity of your profile picture. Of course, this goes down very well with other zooskers, because they see that your profile pictures are real..

    Additional functions at Zoosk

    We find these features particularly good: 

    • SmartDate feature: this matching technique learns from your behaviour and eventually remembers what type you have.
    • Popularity Scale: This feature shows how well your profile is received in the community and whether there is still room for improvement in terms of activity.
    • Flirt carousel: One after the other, profiles are suggested to you, which you can swipe left and right, Tinder-style.
    • Zoosk Blog: Info and blog articles.
    • Zoosk Advertising: Zoosk advertises a lot and has already been "ennobled" by FloRida with the song Zoosk Girl.
    • Zoosk Coins: With this special currency, you can give your profile a bit of a boost. You acquire coins and can then send gifts, move around invisibly in the site, etc.

    Experiences Con Zoosk

    Unfortunately, we found a few points that could speak against Zoosk::

    • Many Zoosk members complain about the flood of notifications in the app. 
    • In our opinion, there are still too many fakes on Zoosk. Unfortunately, the operators of the site can't get rid of the notorious Nigeria scammers.
