Some say that love is a game. With Zoosk.com, that thought is more of a philosophy! Search for people to match with, or take a chance with "Carousel" at finding love at first sight. Send messages or flirts to other users, or even send virtual gifts to show them how you really feel about them! And the more you use Zoosk, the better it is at figuring out the kinds of people whom you're into… as well as who is into you!
Zoosk is a dating website that offers creative ways to find matches. You can use basic searches, try and find mutual matches with the "Carousel" function, or use the "SmartPick" function to find people whom you're more likely compatible with. As you use Zoosk, it learns about whom you like and who likes you. Zoosk is a more game-like dating website than competitors like eHarmony.com and Match.com, and so it tends to appeal to a younger audience.
Creating an account doesn't cost any money and takes very little time at all. Just input your gender and what gender of matches you're looking for, your birthday, the general area in which you live, a profile photo, and a few tidbits about yourself. From there, you're on your way to matching with someone on Zoosk!
Are you looking for someone with a particular body build, religion, or ethnicity? Are you looking for someone with or without children, or who is a non-smoker? Let Zoosk know, and it will look for people who match what you're looking for in your general area.
Are you feeling lucky? Try Zoosk's "Carousel" function. Say "yes" or "no" to 100 possible matches, and see who likes you back! You can also try the "SmartPick" function; based on the kinds of people whom you like and who like you, Zoosk will pair you with people who are likely to take interest in you. Be quick, though; you only have a limited amount of time to "like" each person (or not)!
Once you find someone on Zoosk whom you like, send them a "smile" or a "like". Better yet, send them a message introducing yourself and complimenting them on something that you like about them. You can even send them a virtual gift, if you have Zoosk coins, to show them that you're really into them!
As you like other Zoosk members, and as they like you, you'll get insights into the kinds of people whom you're attracted to and whom you attract. For example, they might be looking for a person of a certain religion. Or maybe they're into a certain music group or celebrity. Or maybe they like the fact that you don't smoke, or are a social drinker. So the more you use Zoosk, the better it gets at matching you with other users!
The rest of our Zoosk course will discuss how much Zoosk costs to use, how to sign up for an account, and how to use the different features of the website and app. We'll even throw in how to delete your account if you don't feel like using it anymore. Zoosk believes that dating should be fun, so jump on in and discover who might be your soul mate!
