If you find that it's hard to meet new people, especially if you're looking for someone to date, then Zoosk is an app that you want to try. You can create a profile with pictures and a little information about yourself that others will read.
- Pictures are verified
- Send simple messages
- View hundreds of users close to your area
- Click on profiles of those you want to interact with and those you don't like
- Create a detailed profile with as much information as you want or as little as you want to reveal
- Meet new people where you live
- You're in control of who to talk to
- Daily picks of people who match your interests
- Can't send lengthy messages unless you subscribe
- Don't really get actual views from people who are interested
- Sorting based on what you like usually doesn't work
- Fees can be high
When you begin looking at the profiles of the people who use Zoosk, you can swipe left or right depending on whether you want to learn more about the person or if you aren't interested. There are some features that you can't use with the free service, but you can usually start a basic chat message or let someone know that you're interested in talking to them. There is a SmartPick given each day based on the information that you present in your profile and what you're looking for based on the details that you note in your preferences. Videos can be uploaded so that you know the person is actually the same one who is in the picture that is displayed on the profile image. There is an option to search for people who live in a certain zip code or who live a certain distance away from your location. Customer service representatives are available if you have any questions about the services that are provided or how to use the app.
