Meanwhile, my ex and her new lover are happy as two birds in a tree while I'm still struggling.I rip my own hair out knowing that with what I spent on this subscription, I could have filled my car's gas tank two if not three times.Got bombarded with 'views' and 'matches' who were totally opposite to my search and filter criteria, advanced education, no smoking, or they resided 100 miles away. You have to buy "coins" to connect with anyone where there might be potential.Kept receiving the same pics/matches that I showed no interest in, over and over. Truthfully, online dating is mostly people who like to look, but have no intention of buying, but Zoosk is the absolute worst.They even charge you extra to see if members you've messaged have received or read your messages to them, I kid you not.As if the bitter note my last relationship ended on wasn't embittering or frustrating enough, now I'm being gypped out of my hard-earned money for merely making an earnest effort to put the adverse memories behind me and start anew.Again, not one single response, save for one who replied to say I lived too great a distance from her for a relationship.
Using any "features" offered means you'll be dishing out several more dollars.How do I know this to be true, because I emailed a guy and asked him, “Are you shy? And youre not going to hear from anyone because the site is as phony as a 3 dollar bill!!! I'm sure they'd have found him if he owed them money. Almost all of the sites are like this, so - women AND men - do your due diligence unless with one of the few sites that actually take that one important step to have an ethical business.” And, “How many times did you view me.” Response 1 time! Yep, it's just another bogus dating site, meant to steal your money and give you one bogus picture after the other to look at. Find a good bar with live music and stay away from this farce of a dating site. Many profiles contained the same generic verbiage and it immediately became clear they were scripted and computer generated.Within the first week of using Zoosk, I found myself regretting my decision.After browsing numerous profiles of local singles, many of whom would have been perfectly compatible with me based on profile information, I sent out several messages in an attempt to initiate conversation. This process repeated itself throughout the subsequent weeks and months.Problem is they brought their behavior to other sites. So if you are a single woman today and you are looking to meet someone to get to know Zoosk is NOT the place. So you spend most of your time blocking (not interested) because Zoosk just randomly sends views to your profile. I signed up for Zoosk because it is rated as the top dating site. This is some of the worst software I have seen that is being sold as a working product. Zoosk is quick to take subscription money but seems not at all concerned about protecting customers. And, you know, it costs 28$ a month to as many background checks as needed.Yes, you can fill out the lengthy questioner as to what you are looking for in a prospective mate. And if someone actually does view you, Zoosk just keeps sending views by the person who really only views you once! Aside from the hours I'd spent trying to get through to customer service in connection to a sex offender who is on their site (I finally had to call new subscriptions to get through to someone), I gave them all the info they could have needed to get this person off their site, and had many different reasons as to why they couldn't find him. Why can't a multi-million dollar business not only not be able to find someone who could be a danger to its customers, but find it too much to spend pennies to do what's right?Were it possible, in fact, Zoosk would be getting a negative five stars after the experience I have had.After being single for nearly five years after the girlfriend I'd been with began dating another man (leaving me empty-handed), I decided it was finally time to move on and restart my love life.My mother, who habitually accuses me of never taking anyone's suggestions, suggested I give Zoosk a trial.So, in an earnest attempt to be more flexible than I'm credited with being, and attempting to adhere to an occasional suggestion, I purchased a six-month membership.
