Analysed for you:

More singles who are more your style


Pros and Cons:

  • One of the world's biggest social online dating portals - Zoosk boasts over 30 million users internationally.
  • Plenty of fun features to play with (things like the Zoosk Flirt Carousel, etc.).
  • "Behaviour based" matching.
  • Quite an easy interface to use, though probably a little bit tacky.
  • Young audience, the oldest users were around 55 years.
  • A few trolls and fake profiles to watch out for.
  • Everything is free of charge until you wish to send a message. Thankfully, prices are quite affordable.

What we think:
That's what we think about
("More singles who are more your style"):
"One of the good things about Zoosk is its useful and easy integration into social networks such as Facebook, MySpace, Bebo and Hi5, as well as its mobile app."

What Kind of Singles Use Zoosk?

It's clear that the singles on Zoosk tend to be a lot younger. There are a lot of people on here who go all the way up to the late thirties and early forties. There are also a couple of older members, though the general age for female members is 25 and for male members 27. Younger people are therefore in the majority.
