Wish I could give this review no stars, first of all after you pay for a membership you have to pay for every other feature which are the only ways you seem to get any matches. Second there are hardly any profiles near Washington or at least any that are actually active and not bots... do not waste your time with this app it’s absolute garbage and the staff brush aside complaints like it’s no big deal, they’re just after the money so don’t waste your money like I did.
Zero stars if I could. Don’t waste your time, money or effort on the Zoosk app. This is by far the most dysfunctional dating app that I’ve ever used. You can’t view a profile if someone wants to meet you. You simply have to choose yes or no based on their first photo (which may or may not be centered) and you don’t even get to see how far away they live. Useless. Things are only slightly better with Smartpick, you can barely see their pictures because they are now just part summary page and look more like a thumbnail (and of course you can’t zoom in.) What makes it completely useless is that support is pretty much nonexistent. After I asked my 2nd question, I felt like they either have software reading your questions and answering them or people who have only the slightest grasp of the English language. Either way, this app has proven to me that it is worthless.
It’s a waste of time and money. They advertise that you can do this and that. While trying to chat with people you can’t because most of the people there don’t have an account. You have to pay in order to chat with people. Then when you pay for. Package of 6 months they end up charging you another 6 months after your 6 months are done even though you only paid for 6 months.
I have attempted to give zoosk the benefit of the doubt based on the reviews however I can not advise more to stay away. First, customer support is brutal. I have been receiving numerous messages from men stating thank you for viewing them or contacting them in one way or another. I have not. I did not view these men, reach out, accidentally look at their profile etc. This occurred over and over. I sent an email to Zoosk with my concerns and spoke to Cesar without any regard. I was concerned in the function of this site and with my privacy as I never contacted or viewed these men. I was refused a refund both my Apple and Zoosk. The greater concern is that Zoosk had not care for how I was concerned about this functionality. I would never recommend this site and if you are concerned about your privacy in any way. Customer support is awful as well.
First dating app I’ve tried that actually had very few fake profiles, scammers & prostitutes. Be aware that developers review ALL profile stories and any edits you make - they will make changes if they don’t like what you write (removing not just profanity & any sexual comments, but also anything that remotely criticizes Zoosk or online dating in general. Don’t dare say that online dating is hard or frustrating). For a guy, the biggest problem is women who do not respond to messages. This app lets you see when anyone views you - even when they keep coming back to see you over and over. But, the lack of engagement from the women is much worse than many other apps. It’s like a lame middle school dance with everyone staring at each other from across the gym! The ladies’ stories all say that they are seeking a guy, but that’s hard to do if you don’t have the guts to exchange a few text messages in the app. I lasted about a month & finally gave up. Hope you have better luck!
If you don’t pay you don’t get to match, I just got a match from someone 2 miles away, very pretty and I can’t respond unless I pay, this app is really trash
Yep, just to say hi. That’s dumb. I’d rather have ads.
This is the second or even maybe the third time I have tried this site. I am really tired of the false viewing notifications it gives. I have had in one case one lady that lives locally and she seems to view my several times a day and yet never says boo to me in a message. I do not like the false profiles this site has. I feel this site does a whole lot to give someone false hopes. And their "security" screening is a joke. I have received SEVERAL "views" with pictures of women that say they are, for example, end of their late 50s or early 60s and there are pictures show a lady, or should I say a girl, there can't be any older than 30. And then on top of that the picture shows a telephone number and says text me at such and such a number. And I say something with a somewhat negative tone and they won't approve it. So don't waste your money here.
My job makes to where I don’t get too meet women. So I decided too try this app. This site on its own starts showing women are viewing your profile. Ok well if you can get these women too answer they ALL said they never seen your profile. This happens multiple times every day. So zoosk pimps out women’s profile saying they viewed you and they NEVER KNEW YOU HAD A PROFILE.
I fell victim to this “pay to play” trap. They even show off fake profiles to hook you in and as soon as you get your membership, all the shiny trinkets are long gone. Really sad that so many people, myself included, have been taken advantage of and helped this company become filthy rich.
